- Very effective noise cancellation
- Great Bluetooth wireless performance
- Excellent sound quality
A lot of people will tell you to buy Bose if you want a noise-cancelling headphone. We would have too, until the Sony MDR-1000X came along.
These wireless active noise cancellation headphones can zap noise just as well as the Bose QuietComfort 35, but have a more dynamic sound, and extra features too. These include NFC, gestures that let you control your music with a flick on one of the earcups and a quick monitoring mode that lets you hear what's going on around you.
They don't blip and splutter like some cheaper wireless headphones and the battery lasts for up to 20 hours. You may think ANC headphones like the Sony MDR-1000X are just for frequent flyers, but we found they make our journey to work much more bearable too. They're not cheap, but are worth every penny.
