The best noise cancelling headphones are the Sony WH-CH700N
The Sony WH-CH700N is a great middle-of-the-road headset for people who like the idea of the Sony WH-1000XM4, but don’t want to shell out $350. The Sony WH-CH700N features a portable design with lightweight, rotating ear cups. The noise cancelling isn’t nearly as effective as Sony’s flagship headset, but that’s to be expected as these are within two completely different price ranges. Battery life, however, is excellent: these headphones last 43.57 hours on a single charge.
Sony WH-CH700NFull Review
The Sony WH-CH700N support the aptX HD Bluetooth codec and have a neutral-leaning frequency response that de-emphasizes the bass frequencies. If you’re a fan of acoustic music, this can come in handy because it helps increase the clarity of the mids and highs. However, if you’re a fan of EDM or pop and like a bass-heavy sound, these may not be for you.
Anyone who prioritizes battery life, portability, and affordability, should get the Sony WH-CH700N today.
The UE Boom 3 is a great portable speaker
If you’re looking for a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, the UE Boom 3 is a great choice. It merits an IP67 rating and it floats, so it can be easily retrieved if it slips out of your hand by the pool. The UE Boom 3 has the size and shape of a water bottle, making it a great option for a beach evening or day hike.
UE Boom 3Full Review
The Boom 3 doesn’t have the most impressive sound quality, but it’s good for parties: it gets very loud for its size, and can connect 150 other UE speakers via the app. You can also EQ the sound signature through the UE app if you choose. UE makes it easy to switch between playlists; all you have to do is long-press the multifunction button.
The famed Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is an absolute steal
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is an renowned headset because of its style, and sound quality. Sure, sound quality won’t compare to high-end studio headphones, but the drivers reproduce a relatively neutral frequency response with a slight bass boost to please most consumers.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50xFull Review
The wired Audio-Technica ATH-M50x include three different cables—you can pay a little extra for the Bluetooth version. Passive isolation is fine, because of its plush padding, so it’s a good choice for commuting. The ear pads are also very comfortable, so you won’t feel any pain during long listening sessions.
Durability is key with the JBL Charge 3
If you want a larger Bluetooth speaker that’s still portable and waterproof, the JBL Charge 3 is your friend. This speaker has an IPX7 rating and is portable but large enough to produce loud sound with booming bass.
JBL Charge 3Full Review
The JBL Charge 3 lasts about 20 hours on a single charge, and it charges via microUSB. You can also use the speaker to charge your smartphone, so it serves as a portable charger. Its Bluetooth connection is stable and can last up to 18 meters without connection issues.

Listen in style with the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3
The Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is a beautiful pair of active noise cancelling headphones. Its leather headband and memory foam ear cups make it very comfortable, though the metal reinforcement of the headband can create a pressure point on the crown of your head. The Momentum Wireless 3 are easily compacted and come with a carrying pouch, so they can be thrown into your bag.
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3Full Review
The Momentum Wireless 3 have auto-pause and auto-resume functionality, Bluetooth multipoint, and adjustable ANC and transparency modes. Its battery lasts 13 hours, 17 minutes on a single charge and it has quick charging capabilities. The Momentum Wireless 3 sound great but have a heavy bass boost that certain audiophiles may not like, but most consumers will. Its sound signature can be equalized in the Sennheiser app, and you can also enable voice assistant access in the app.
This handsome headset is among our favorite Sennheiser headphones around.
