Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones: 7 of the best right now


Key features:

  • Over-ear design
  • Active noise-cancelling
  • Passive listening mode

The Sony MDR-100ABN h.ear on Wireless combine serious street cred-worthy looks with wireless functionality and excellent active noise-cancellation prowess. They’re priced very competitively, too, undercutting rivals by a considerable amount. These circumaural (over-ear) cans completely envelope your ears but are supremely comfortable. They also support Bluetooth aptX and Sony’s LDAC codec if you have a higher-end Sony Walkman or Xperia smartphone. Battery life at 20 hours is great and there’s a 3.5mm jack to fall back on if the battery runs out.

At time of review the Sony MDR-100ABN h.ear on Wireless were available for £219.
