1. Anker Soundcore Life Q20

Get them on sale on Amazon here (also available in blue and white).

“These headphones Soundcore Life Q20 are very good for the price. The noise cancellation is great for peace and quiet whilst working when the kids are home schooling. Sound quality I think is excellent, they have a extra bass button for music and work very well on calls etc. Battery life again is very good. When powered on they tell you the status of the battery, a charge lasts forever and they charge quickly. I think they’re advertised as 20 hours per charge which is probably right. Build quality is good, their fairly solid and the padding works well to make them comfortable. I’m fine with them weight wise however some might think they’re a little heavy if not used to over ear headphones. All in all you can’t go wrong with these for the price..” — JohnC

2. Razer BlackShark V2

“First of all I recommend you use them on a pc. I use them on a PS4 aswell, however Razer Synapse (Razer’s support software) really optimises the sound quality. I play Counter Strike fairly competitively and the sound quality of these headphones are brilliant for it especially when set to ‘Game’ mode in Synapse. There are modes for pretty much everything, such as Movie and Music. You can also set it to custom which will allow you to configure your own type of sound (eg. If you want it bassier you can set it). In terms of noise cancellation, they are built for esports environments so of course the noise cancellation is great. They are also very comfortable and your ears will never get hot. However they have quite a significant clamping force, so after about 6-8 hours of gaming, they tend to be a bit uncomfortable, but all you need to really is to take them off for like a minute or two then you’re good to go. They are also really loud. Overall, these are one of the best headphones I have ever purchased.” — LM

3. Prtukyt 9S

Get them on sale on Amazon here (also available in silver and rose gold).

“Good quality, nice fit meaning passive noise cancellation works well. Bare in mind this is passive which means it’s more noise suppression rather than cancellation but they are nice and quiet when on. Connection was easy and sound quality good in this price range.” — Dean H.

4. Sony WH-1000XM3

Get them on Amazon for here (also available in silver).

“Given that these are pretty pricey, it took me a long time to summon up the courage to buy them. I did so on the recommendation of a work colleague, and haven’t regretted it. They do a great noise reduction job, particularly if that noise is a constant, relatively stable volume/pitch noise e.g. background road traffic, or aircraft cabin interior during flight. The bluetooth connection works reliably with my personal Android phone and tablet, a work-supplied iPad, and my Windows laptop. There is a downloadable app for both Android and iPad OS that will help with the setup and pairing.

The battery life is very impressive (about 30 hours), being the best, by far, of the all the top-quality headphones out there at the time I purchased it. Additionally, just 10 minutes of charging will get you around 5 hours of use — very handy!

Even if the battery is completely depleted, the item can still function as a ’basic’ headset by plugging it in using the supplied mini-plug cable (assuming of course, the device you are plugging it in to has a mini-plug socket — so many newer devices don’t!). Of course, a depleted battery means you won’t have the noise reduction facility, but you can still listen to whatever it is you are plugged in to.” — Islander

5. Anker Soundcore P3

Get them on sale on Amazon here (also available in 4 other colors).

These headphones rival Airpods, as an Android user though I refuse to pay Apple money. Picked these up for £69.99 and I don’t regret a thing. The overall sound quality is amazing, as is the noise cancelling function too. It’s highly customisable so can block out noise indoors, outdoors or anywhere inbetween.
I tested them while vacuuming and couldn’t hear it over the headphones at all and I was 3 feet away from it.
Haven’t had to charge the case yet either, I estimate around 40 hours of music/podcasts by now and the case still has between 0-25% capacity left. The headphones themselves haven’t died on me either. Quick charge for 10 minutes and they’re back to almost full power again.
The call quality is also excellent, easy to hear people and I’ve had no complaints about the quality from my end either. Not a single complaint, or issue with these. The headphones are light but not so light you forget they’re there, they’re comfortable to wear and come with various sizes of ear caps. The provided companion app is actually pretty good too. The widget doesn’t always update on your home screen till you open the app, but it’s feature-packed and really useful for changing noise cancellation settings on the fly.” — ANTHR1CH

6. Infurture H1

Get them on sale on Amazon here (also available in black).

“I have awful sensory issues — sound being the worst. Chewing, hearing my housemates play FIFA through the walls at 4am, hearing them sing ten hours a day — it blocked it all out. I did get a slight headache the first time I just used the ANC function but that went away once I’d gotten used to it. Other than that, the sound quality is great. Not far off my friend’s Bose pair in all honestly, but these are much better value.” — Wolfie

7. Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II)

Get them on sale on Amazon for here (also available in black).

“Comfortable, noise cancelling fantastic, sound quality excellent all as expected from Bose. You get what you pay for and I’m delighted with these headphones. Good battery life too. If you can afford to pay the price premium for a Bose product you will not be disappointed.” — chuvvy

8. Srhythm NC25

Get them on sale on Amazon here (also available in coral orange and matte black).

“I’ve had these for exactly a year now and they’re still good as new. Sound quality is great, I regularly sleep with them on with no issues, they’re comfortable and great if you struggle with misophonia or you have noisy neighbours and want quiet. On that note, the noise cancelling is decent. I have found that this feature has waned over time and it’s not as good at cancelling out noise as it was a couple months ago, but to be fair I use these headphones virtually 24/7 so I’m not surprised.
About to purchase another pair for the gym, as that’s how good they are.” — Steph

9. Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless

Get them on Amazon here.

“If you get these READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. The insert and twist is ESSENTIAL to getting a good seal and as a result a deep and vibrant sound. If you just cram them into your ears then you will end up with a horrible flat and tinny sound.

Bass good presence without being overbearing
Mid is articulate and clear, no muddiness
High bright with a subtle sparkle

Noise cancellation is effective, but it’s essential you try all the buds to ensure you have the best fit. When activated can’t even hear clicking fingers in front of face, means music is very enveloping. Even with the iPhone sound limiting music is an immersive experience. Transparency mode is very good and can have unhindered conversations with buds in without any problems.” — Mr. Micholas K. Murphy
