Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

If the Sony WH-1000XM4s are the current king of noise-cancelling headphones, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are next in line for the throne. We think the Sonys sound slightly better, but the Bose noise cancelling is superior – so if you’re a frequent flyer these may well be the better option for you.

Over Ear

By applying noise cancellation to phone calls as well as music, Bose has made great strides in the field of noise-cancelling headphones. We found the sound quality to be undeniably good, with a vibrant, lively character and well-balanced soundstage.

Bluetooth Headphones

If you’re trying to decide between buying the Sony WH-1000XM4s and these Bose headphones, we’d recommend going for the former because of that lower price and better battery life – they’re our number one pick for those reasons. But you wouldn’t be making a mistake if you opted for the Bose cans instead (and we wouldn’t blame you if you did) – they sound great, look stunning, and the noise cancellation is out of this world.

The best budget wireless headphones

Plantronics BackBeat GO 810 Wireless Headphones

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 are one of our favorite wireless headphones as they offer excellent sound, build quality and features for the price. That said, if you don’t want to spend $200 (£230, AU$250) on a set of wireless headphones but still want active noise cancellation (ANC) and some features worthy of the best headphones, the all-new Plantronics BackBeat Go 810 are an excellent choice.

Over-Ear Headphones

In terms of sound, the Plantronics BackBeat GO 810 are good, but fall flat of a few areas: the tonal balance is slightly warm from neutral, but the headphones don’t provide a lot of detail. We tried the headphone with both ANC on and off and found it sounded best with ANC on. With ANC disabled, the headphone’s bass gets overwhelming and sounds loose. There’s also an annoying faint hiss when there’s no music playing. We found the headphones lasted closer to 20 hours with ANC on, which isn’t far from the company’s rating. This is excellent and will get travelers through long flights without a problem.

Pros

  • Excellent build quality
  • Warm, balanced sound
  • Reliable wireless connection

Cons

  • Average ANC
  • Attracts dust
  • Hiss when music isn’t playing

Mixcder E9 PRO Foldable Over Ear Headset with Microphone

Mixcder

The Mixcder’s E9 won’t excite you, but for the money, they shouldn’t have to. The best way we can describe the sound of these headphones is that they sound just fine, and there’s nothing that stands out as particularly bad. They just work. Nothing is especially punchy or particularly exciting, but nothing is offensive either, which could be just what you need to escape from work distractions or other noises.

Over-Ear headphones

We had no problems with connectivity during use, and noise cancellation worked as expected. We found these nice to use in a coffee shop, where there are a lot of different sounds. One issue to point out is that they feel fragile. It’s not like they’re going to snap in half, but you can feel the material quality or lack thereof. Otherwise, if you’re going to treat them nicely, the Mixcder E9 are a solid, if not exciting, option.

The best wireless headphones

Bowers & Wilkins PX7

If you’re looking for wireless headphones with active noise cancellation and you’re not put off by the $399 / £349 / AU$600 price tag, the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 Wireless Headphones are well worth considering. The title of best wireless headphones still goes to Sony, but there’s not much in it between Sony’s cans and these from Bowers & Wilkins.

Wireless Headphones

With sophisticated noise cancellation, much-improved sound quality and stylish design, we found the PX7s a delight to test and think they could give any of the headphones on this list a run for their money.

Bluetooth Headphone

They’re also packing aptX Adaptive for improved stability and latency between the headphones and your device, as well as high-quality (24-bit) streaming aptX HD brought to the table. That’s why they’re the best headphones if you’re looking for a strong pair of all-rounders.

The best turntable for most people

If you want to enjoy the rich sound of vinyl without losing out on a single scrap of audio information, then check out the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo record player.

Pro-Ject’s Debut range of record players has been around for some time now and has been refined, upgraded and bumped up in price ever since. Now, the Debut Carbon Evo is the most refined, upgraded and enjoyable Pro-ject model we’ve ever tested — and it’s also the most expensive.

But please don’t let the price put you off if you can afford it and want the best turntable your money can buy. In terms of specs, it justifies its price, with a new motor design, automatic speed change, improved performance and ergonomics, a choice of nine finishes.

Audiophile Turntable

How about the all important sound? Fantastic. During our testing, we found that listening to this turntable was extremely enjoyable, we wrote: “It doesn’t matter the sort of music you like to listen to — the Debut Carbon Evo laps it up. In every circumstance it’s a detailed and revealing listen, able to focus on the minutiae even as it describes the complete picture completely convincingly.” It’s undoubtedly one of the best turntables on the planet.

Safer Headphones for Kids

The Puro Sound Labs BT2200 set connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth-equipped source device and is easy to use thanks to a simple on/off switch and volume controls. With a long battery life of at least 20 hours, this pair offers a lot of listening time between charges.

The BT2200 is designed to provide a safer headset for children. Follows the World Health Organization’s recommended 85dB limit volume range, designed to protect young listeners’ eardrums from early hearing damage. But at the same time the BT2200 includes clear, crisp vocals and full dynamic bass—all within the safe 85 dB range. Built-in microphone, perfect for online learning.

The ear pads of the BT2200 are removable and replaceable. A new pair of ear pads is just $8. The BT2200 is equipped with on-ear ear cushions, which are generally suitable for smaller children and those who wear glasses. But for kids who prefer over-ear styles, the Puro has a unique design of replaceable ear pads, which can be purchased separately. Also, the foam in the pad is soft and doesn’t crunch, which can be important for kids who are allergic to these things.
