Jabra Move Wireless
Apple ditched the headphone jack on the iPhone 7, “but don’t despair,” says John Patrick Pullen at Time. There are quality wireless options out there. In the $100 range, Jabra’s cans offer the best sound quality, and the memory foam–lined cups are “like pillows for your ears.”
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless
No other wireless headphones can top the “truly exceptional” sound quality provided by these handsome leather Sennheisers, says Adam Clark Estes at Gizmodo. They have an internal microphone to support phone calls, and they fold down to about half their size.
These were the first truly wireless earbuds, without even a connecting band. Bragi has a simpler, cheaper model available now that Apple and others are catching up. The Dash is waterproof, though, and monitors the wearer’s biometrics.
In a comparison test of 85 sport-specific wireless earbuds, this durable lightweight option — with buds that stay put in most ears — finished on top. If you don’t like the JLab ear hooks, check out the Jaybird X2, the testers’ runner-up.
Bose QuietComfort 35
For those who need a noise-canceling feature, these headphones are “the best around,” says Chris Welch at The Verge. A hard-shell carrying case and 20-hour battery life make them perfect for frequent flyers, and they’ll wrap your ears in “divine comfort.”
