Headphones: Sony WH-1000XM3
Headphones: Our recommendation for the best headphones, the best wireless and the best noise cancelling headphones is one and the same: the Sony WH-1000XM3 . In short, we really approve of these cans. Sony wins on sound quality and design, with touch controls on the right earcup that work beautifully and a battery life that lasts up to 30 hours. With USB-C rapid charging and excellent wireless sound performance, these superstars are worth every penny.
