Have you reached that stage in your life where you’re fed up of wires? Tripping up, getting caught on things and smashing up your phone can all be things of the past. The best Bluetooth headphones reviews on-site focus mainly on audio performance, comfort and features.

Picking wireless headphones wisely

With the primary goal being music listening, lets not forget about where that money is going. With comfort being a secondary to audio, plush ear cushions, or earpieces should be a perfect fit, ready for hours of pain free reggae (Or any decent music).

If you are looking for a balanced audio response, it is best to avoid products with a limited description. It will therefore allow you to be sure you are really getting positive results and not sub-par headphones. The further you are away from your music streaming device, the lower the audio quality that is received by the headphones. How can you tell? Reviewers should test how many feet the headphones can be away a phone or portable audio device. If it’s a far distance, then you know the Bluetooth transmitter is a powerful one.

Active noise cancelling headphones: block out background noise

Active noise cancelling headphones enable the user to block out unwanted noise. This is particularly useful for allowing music to your ears, rather than the building work next door. It works best if the headphones have a good seal, otherwise it would be kind of pointless having ANC in the first place.

Now the interesting part, how does active noise cancelling work? There are usually two little microphones on each ear cup that measure your outside surroundings. Electronics inside your headphones will generate a waveform that is ‘out of phase’ by 180 degrees. This counters the ambient background noise, cancelling it out.
