It is admittedly difficult to point towards a single invention as being the most revolutionary creation of man, but if there were a top ten list, headphones would feature in it. Not a day goes by when we see a random person strolling by with a pair of headphones covering his ears and an expression of obliviousness upon his face.
A pair of headphones is, without a doubt, the most popular accessory in the world, with people of all ages clamoring to invest in them at least once. And who can blame them? Not only is it a highly convenient way to listen to music, podcasts or any other form of audio data while on the go, it also looks nice over the head, therefore, serving as a fashion statement.
Unsurprisingly, this revolutionary product has undergone a major revolution of its own.
Wireless Bluetooth headphones
For the longest time, this technological marvel came equipped with wires, because how else do you establish a medium for the transmission of electric current? Now there is nothing inherently wrong about wires, but they can make your device extremely awkward and wieldy to use. Moreover, they can get twisted and wound up pretty easily, and once that happens, it takes ages to unwind them. Seriously, it’s not worth the hassle.
Then there is the fact that as far as Apple’s latest iPhones are concerned, starting from the iPhone X, the headphone jack is missing. Now whether you like that development or not is an entirely different story; the point is, your vanilla wired headphones are not going to help if you possess an iPhone X. Therefore, you are left with the great option of investing in an enticing pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones.
Now, this is bound to trigger yet another dilemma, namely: with such a vast array of wireless headphones in the market, how on earth do you select the ideal pair? This is exactly what we are going to address in this article, as we introduce you to five of the best wireless Bluetooth headphones for the iPhone X.
AKG N60 wireless headphones
This beautiful and elegantly designed pair of on-ear headphones comes equipped with high-quality noise cancellation technology that more or less eliminates interfering frequencies. As far as the design is concerned, they are easily foldable and don’t take a significant amount of space around your ears. The best part, however, is the battery life, which stands at an impressive 30 hours and makes for an ideal pair for long-term daily use.
Bose QuietComfort 35
As the name suggests, this particular pair brings you a fine combination of noise cancellation and comfort that makes you want to stick around with them for as long as possible. The ear cushions are incredibly soft, and the headband is sufficiently wide for a compact fit.
Practically speaking, it is a wonder. It can connect to two devices at the same time, for instance, and switch between them smoothly. The battery lasts for a solid 20 hours, and you can use them in wired mode as well, which inevitably boosts battery life and sound consistency. At a price of around $448, it might be out of the budget, but it is an investment well worth it.
Beats Solo 3 Wireless
As you might already know, battery life is the one area where Bluetooth headphones can let you down. However, that is not the case with the Beats Solo 3, which has a large battery life of 40 hours. The pair also consists of an innovative feature known as the ‘fast-fuel’ option whereby you can play music for three hours after a mere five minutes of charging.
At 215g, they are certainly heavy, but they more than make-up for this with comfortable ear cushions and that signature Beats bass. As far as price is concerned, they will put you back by around $300.
JBL Everest 300
With thickly padded earpieces and pure white color, the JBL Everest 300 is a sight to behold. It has a battery life of 20 hours which is pretty average in this domain, but they do provide a nice sound. A major letdown would have to be the fact that noise cancellation is non-existent, but other than that, it is a pretty cool thing to own.
Bowers & Wilkins PX
Rounding off this list is the lusciously designed over-ear wireless headphones from Bowers and Wilkins. With exquisite leather padding providing comfort and the substantial headband providing stability, they are highly convenient. At a weight of 335g, they are certainly heavier than the usual pair, but they are also foldable thereby making them very portable.
The noise cancellation technology is there, as is a decent battery life of 22 hours. The price ($399) may not sound pleasant, but you can’t be blamed for gravitating towards them anyway; they are simply that good.
