25 {Wireless Bluetooth} Headphones To Consider In 2018

Discarding the headphone jack is a trend many smartphone makers are following. This has given Bluetooth headphone sales a huge boost and you should be aware of the market trends if you want to upgrade your smartphone anytime soon.

We’ll be breaking down wireless headphones into 3 categories based on design: full size, on-ear, and in-ear wireless headphone. Here is a comprehensive guide of our top picks for Bluetooth Wireless Headphones in 2018. 

Best Full size (Over Ear) Bluetooth Wireless Headphones

Full size headphones come with big ear cups that connect with a headband. They fully wrap around your ears to offer a sweeping soundstage, hugely powerful bass and a real life listening experience. The ear cups house large drivers up to 40mm in size.

The ear cups not only offer effective sound isolation, but help keep the headphones on your ear, and allow you to fix the fitting by the adjusting the headband.

These days, full size Bluetooth headphones are equipped to work with smartphones and other Bluetooth audio devices. Aside from the freedom of a wireless experience, you can get additional features like active noise cancelation, touch control and voice command prompts. Note that big ear cups with leather padding can be bad for your ears in some situations like hot weather.

When considering comfort, style, features and sound quality, the top 5 below may be on your shortlist as they are our top picks for best noise cancellation, making calls, comfort, quality and features.

The recently launched Bose QuiteComfort 35 is a comfortable, great sounding wireless headphone that can doubles as a noise silencer. They QC 35 are categorized in a business class in headphone world. Now you can even get more freedom from wireless technology and an outstanding capacity to eliminate ambient noise. They are slightly more expensive than the competitor, the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless.

2. Sony MDR-1000X

Automatically Pairs with your Devices

If you are looking for an over-ear Bluetooth headphone that combines great noise cancellation, comfort and outstanding sound quality, the Sony MDR-1000X should be your first stop. This set competes directly with Bose QC35 and Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 at the moment.

It is really hard to say which is the best among them. The Sony MDR-1000X are built with the lastest AptX Bluetooth technology for high quality sound, which is clear and crisp. They have a good battery that lasts 20 hours.

The touch control on the right ear cup enables you to control the volume and navigate tracks. One cool feature is that when you hold your palm on the right ear cup it will muffle your music and let the ambient sound in. This is achieved by using a microphone to capture that ambient sound or your voice, which is amplified so you can hear everything clearly.

This is truly a great looking set of headphones. Sony blended premium, soft leather with a shiny metal headband to create an edgy, modern look. Though these are somewhat bulkier and less comfortable than Bose QC 35, they are both superbly comfortable.

3. Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless: Best sound and Runner-up for Active Noise Cancellation

[/su_row]

With a solidly constructed fold-up design and attractive metal-headband wrapped in leather, the Momentum 2.0 are the best sounding Bluetooth wireless headphones on the market. The active noise cancelling feature works effectively to cancel out the ambient noise and it remains active when you use the headphone in pairing mode via Bluetooth.

While noise cancelling feature adds benefit to users, the circuitry does compromise the sound and sometimes a hissing sound is present. If you don’t need this feature here are alternatives.

4. JBL E55BT Over-Ear Wireless Headphones

JBL E55BT Over-Ear Wireless Headphones
Great Looking Headphones with Solid Bass

Style: Closed back, Over-ear | Play Time: 20 hours | Frequency Response: 20Hz – 20kHz | Driver type: 50mm/Dynamic  | Impedence: 32Ω | Bluetooth range: 33 feet |NFC, AptX: No | Noise Cancellation: No

Not everyone spends as much money on the 3 premium models we’ve recommended. If you like something with great quality for a lower price, JBL’s E55BT are a great option. Their comfort and build quality aren’t outstanding, but they look good, sound decent and last up to 20 hours on a two hour charge.

The control is positioned on the right ear cup, and in case the headphone runs out of battery you can use an included cable with a single button remote for wired listening.

As most headphones with 50mm drivers, the E55BT ensure a substantial amount of bass, but also offer sound controls to help avoid boomy or over loaded bass. In terms of details, these headphones won’t blow your mind, but they are on par with the Sony MDR-1000X.

5. Koss BT540i: Great Sound at an Affordable Price

[/su_column]
[/su_row]

This pair won’t break the bank, but they are a truly high quality set of wireless headphones. They provide listeners with balanced sound that isn’t too bass heavy or harsh in the highs. These headphones have a decent battery life, comfortable fit and a slick design.

The control is easy to use; you just feel and press the buttons. The headphones can be used as a great headset for calls as well. With a dual-mic, they not only capture your voice clearly, but reduce background noises as well.

Best On-Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

Somewhat smaller than full-size headphones, these on-ear models are less noise-isolating, but lighter and more flexible for users on the go. Their ear cups don’t fully wrap around the ears and because of a smaller build they have smaller drivers which pump less bass. Their soundstage isn’t as open as full-size headphones either. This type of headphone is the least popular and there are only a few models released every year. Here are our picks for the top wireless on-ear headphones.

6. Jabra Move Wireless: Best Value

Jabra Move Wireless Headphones
These Stylish Headphones Come In Many Bold Colors

Style: On-ear | Play Time: 8 hours| Frequency Response: 20-2000Hz | Driver Size: 40mm | Driver type: Dynamic | Sensitivity: 94dBSPL with 60mV at 1kHz | Impedance: 29 ohms | Bluetooth range: 33 feet |NFC: Yes AptX: Yes

The best value on-ear wireless headphones have to be the Jabra Move. They sound great for the money, sit comfortably on your head, and offer a solid Bluetooth connection. This set can be used for running and are not just appealing for quality sound, but for an edgy look too. They are easy to control with no confusing buttons and come in a simple, durable, fashionable design.

Their sound signature offers solid, punchy bass, and shows off a wide response frequency for many kinds of music.

7. Beats Solo2: Sporty and Stylish Wireless  On-Ear Headphones

Beats By Dre Solo 2 On-Ear Headphones
Great Looking and Sounding Headphones That Won’t Break the Bank

Style: On-ear | Play Time: 12 hours| Frequency Response: 20-2000Hz | Driver Size: 40mm | Driver type: Dynamic | Sensitivity: 94dBSPL with 60mV at 1kHz | Impedance: 29 ohms | Bluetooth range: 30 feet |NFC: No AptX: No

Pros:

  • Good looking
  • High level of noise isolation
  • Snug fit for workout
Cons:

  • Sound fairly un-balanced
  • Pricey

 

The Beats Solo 2 Wireless are a rugged, cool looking set of headphones from Beats. They have a metal band to give users a durable, solid, snug fit. Judging from the the price you get what you pay for in terms of sound and comfort. As always, on-ear wireless headphones from Beats offer strong bass, creating a unique sound profile that dance and pop music lovers want, but the bass could be more crisp. This set of headphones from Beats redefines the headphone not just in terms of how they sound, but how they look.

Aside from the appealing style, the remote control is easy to locate and operate without looking. Apple just released the Beat Solo 3 with the longest battery life for an on-ear Bluetooth headphone at 40 hours per charge, but it comes with a hefty price tag. These headphones are also equipped with a W1 chip which makes it very easy to pair with other Apple devices.

8. Plantronics BackBeat Sense

Plantronics Backbeat Sense Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Modern, Durable Build

Style: On-ear | Play Time: 18 hours| Weight: 140 grams | Bluetooth range: 30 feet |NFC: No AptX: Yes

  • Solid build quality
  • Comfortable
  • Strong battery life
Cons:

The Plantronics BackBeat Sense sound great and are well designed with a solid build and comfortable fit. They aren’t heavy on bass, but overall they are the best set you could find for under $200.

They are equipped with dual mics that easily pick up voices and built-in sensors that detach when you wear the headphones.

9. Bose SoundLink Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones: Best of the Midrange 

Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Wireless Headphones
Comfortable, Solid Design

Though the design of the Bose SoundLink is less attractive than Beats Solo 2 Wireless, the Bose SoundLink sounds slightly better as they are more balanced and have a warm mid-range. The headphone can pair to 2 devices simultaneously so you can switch back and forth between them. 

Bose SoundLink

Style: On-ear | Play Time: 15 hours | Bluetooth range: 30 feet |NFC: No AptX: No

Pros:

  • Compact, comfortable

10. SkullCandy Grind Wireless: Great on a Budget

Skullcandy Grind Bluetooth Wireless On-Ear Headphones
Amazing Look at an Amazing Price

You can’t fold up these headphones but they are brilliantly designed. The Skull Grind Wireless headphones are lightweight with a metal headband wrapped in soft padding to keep them solid and stable on your head. They sound surprisingly good for such a modest price and even have a remote/microphone built into the left ear cup.

Best In-Ear Bluetooth Headphones

In-ear headphones offer lightweight design, small and compact size, good noise isolation, portability. Unfortunately, when they run out of battery you have no option but to use a cable to continue listening to music. They are commonly put into the following catagories: around the neck, wired Bluetooth earbuds, and completely wireless.

Around-The-Neck Headphones

Behind the neck Bluetooth headphones are perfect for listening to music, yet they also work as a decent headset for calls. This style is preferred by many people, and the LG Tone neckband-style Bluetooth headphones were the first breakout star of around the neck style headphones.

11. SkullCandy Ink’d Wireless

Skullcandy Ink'd Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds
Good Noise Isolation and Flexible Band

SkullCandy Wireless  Style: Around the neck, earbuds | Play Time: 8 hours | Frequency Response: 20-20,000Hz | Driver Size: 10 mm | Driver type: Dynamic | Sensitivity: N/A | Impedance: 16 ohms | Bluetooth range: 30+ feet |NFC: YES

Pros:

  • Good sound
  • Comfortable fit
Cons:

  • Decent battery
  • Look cheap due to an entirely plastic construction

SkullCandy is known for making unique headphones that feature their their signature logo of a skull. The SkullCandy Ink’d Wireless is not that stylish, but they offer powerful bass in a flexible behind the neck design. The headset comes with an affordable price tag, and is rated moderately for call quality and sound. It also has a remote control on the right side with easy-to-navigate, large buttons. With thin cables and light earbuds attached to the collar you will forget you are even wearing them.

The Ink’d Wireless sound impressive with a decent amount of bass push, clear treble and warm midrange. Unfortunately the battery doesn’t measure up to more expensive models like the LG Tone Ultra.

12. LG Ultra Tone Infinim HBS-900

LG Electronics Tone Infinim HBS-900 Bluetooth Wireless Headset
Secure Fit and Great Sound

Style: Around the neck, retractable earbuds | Play Time: 14 hours | Frequency Response: 16-22,000Hz | Driver Size: N/A | Driver type: Dynamic | Sensitivity: N/A | Impedance: 28 ohms | Bluetooth range: 30+ feet |NFC: Yes

13. Sol Republic Shadow: Gaming Wireless In-Ear Headphones

SOL REPUBLIC Shadow Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
Surprisingly Great Sound From A Gaming Headset

Aside from excellent sound, the neck band of the Sol Republic Shadow is flexible and allows you to easily wrap the cables up for storage. With a solid construction, metal earbud housings and s rugged, flat cable attached to the band, these are an ideal headset for any situation.

Their sound is less appealing than the LG Tone Infinim, but gaming headphones have different sound signatures because they are designed for sound effects, not music.

14. Sony SBH70: Best Sport Wireless Sony Headphones

Stereo Bluetooth Headset SBH70 Black
Waterproof Headphones Perfect for Active Users

Sony has made another solid set of earbuds in these popular, around the neck Bluetooth headphones. They sound open, clear and pleasant. They have an open-sealed style fitting for those who don’t like eartips inserted into their ear canals, or active users who want to be aware of their surroundings as they exercise. They are rated as waterproof and can be used in light rain. One drawback to this set is their short, 6 hour battery life.

15. Samsung Level U Pro 

Samsung Level U Pro Bluetooth Wireless In-ear Headphones with Microphone and UHQ Audio, Black
Battery Lasts Up To 9 Hours

Designed for active users, the Samsung Level U Pro provide excellent fit and sweat resistant features. The headset also delivers decent call quality with a built-in dual mic and noise cancelation feature. They are designed with magnets in the earbuds so that they clasp around your neck like a collar when not in use.

Bluetooth Earbuds with a short cable

This type of headphone is a great option for sports. They sound good, fit securely with hooks and are sweat-proof or waterproof.

16. Jaybird X3 Sport Wireless Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones

Jaybird X3 In-Ear Wireless Bluetooth Sports Headphones
New Refined Style, Same Great Sound
Pros:

  • Best sounding Bluetooth in-ear headphones
  • Fast charging with lithium-ion battery
  • Excellent sweat-proof design
Cons:

  • Great noise isolation which can cause safety issues
  • Not great at separating instrument sounds

Jaybird has set high standards for Bluetooth earbuds since they launched their first Bluetooth earbuds, the Jaybird X. If you are looking for sweat-proof headphones that combine quality audio and solid build you can never go wrong with Jaybrid. Their new model, the X3 is among the top choices out there. They are durable, water-resistant and comfortable to wear. They sound good for a Bluetooth headphone, and their sound profile leans forward to balance, while still showcasing deep, rich bass. The internal battery can last up to 8 hours between charges.

Aside from improvements in design and sound, the X3 fits better than their predecessor with a bunch of accessories including wing tips, silicon and foam eartips. They charge via a micro-USB located on the inline control.

17. Nuforce BE6i

Optoma NuForce BE6i Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Great Features for Active Users

The NuForce BE6i comes with many accessories including wingtips, eartips, clip and a great carrying case. These earbuds are very well designed and have a solid build for active users. The cable is durable with an inline control that is a little bulky. The BE6i earbuds sound well balanced, but fail to deliver bass. If you are looking for thumping bass, consider the next set on our list. When not in use the earbuds magnetically clip together around your neck. The headset has 8 hours of playtime and a strong Bluetooth connection that reaches up to 30 meters.

18. Beats PowerBeat wireless 3

Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones
Sports Headphones with a W-1 Chip

These cool looking sports in-ear headphones never miss a beat when it comes to delivering the bass you love. The PowerBeat 3 earbuds are equipped with Apple’s latest Bluetooth technology: the W1 chip. This chip provides a strong and solid Bluetooth connection as well as high quality sound.

Though they look big in your ear they are very comfortable and snug with StayHear+ Sport tips. Those tips don’t jam deeply into you ear canals, and they are open which allows ambient sound to come in so you are aware of your surroundings as you exercise. They deliver plenty of bass, a warm midrange and have an open-sounding profile.

A portable charging case, which is sold separately, allows you to charge the headphones on the go via micro USB port on the inline remote. There is another version of these earbuds called the Bose SoundSport Wireless Pulse that can also track your fitness, but they cost a bit more.

Pros:

Cons:

  • Bulky

20. 1MORE iBFree Bluetooth Earbuds

1MORE Bluetooth In Ear Headphones
Great Look Available in Many Colors

 

Taking all the advantages from their wired model, including a triple driver (which I picked for the best earuds under 100), 1MORE recently released their first Bluetooth earbuds called iBfree. These earbuds look sleek and polished in their metal housings. Other features like earhooks, a cable shortener, and a sweat-resistant build make the iBfree ideal for workouts.

Completely Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

Completely wireless earbuds have no cable and no band, they are simply 2 earpieces with Bluetooth and smart features. When choosing this type of wearable headphone you should consider sound quality, call clarity, battery life, range, simplicity, fit and water/sweat resistance.

21. Samsung Gear IconX: Our Pick for Best Totally Wireless Earbuds

Samsung Gear IconX Bluetooth Earbuds
The Best Earbuds for Active Users

 Style: Totally wireless earbuds | Play Time: 3 hours (battery: 47mAh)| Frequency Response: 20-20,000Hz | Driver Size: N/A | Driver type: Dynamic | Sensitivity: 89.5 dB ± 3 dB / 1mW | Impedance: 16 ohms | Bluetooth range: + feet |NFC: N/A

Most totally wireless earbuds you see on the market today are still the first generation, so they are not perfect and have some bugs to be worked out. If you are interested in totally wireless earbuds, though, the Samsung Gear IconX is the best set of totally wireless Bluetooth earbuds you could pick. First, their Bluetooth connection is strong and stable with a long connection range. Secondly, they sound great and fit snugly in the ear with silicon earhooks. Despite looking rugged and sturdy, they are lightweight and comfortable. These earbuds also have quite a decent battery and get a full charge from a pocket-sized portable charging case. Finally, they feature touch control and water resistance to survive rough conditions while you workout.

22. The Kanoa

Style: Totally wireless earbuds | Play Time: 3 hours (battery: 47mAh)| Frequency Response: 20-19,000Hz | Driver Size: N/A | Driver type: Hybrid Balanced Armature Driver | Sensitivity: 31dBPa/V at 1kHz | Impedance: 16 ohms | Bluetooth range: + feet | Water Resistance: IP67 | AptX: Yes 

If you are craving totally wireless earbuds for your active lifestyle, you will be impressed with what the Kanoa can offer. The fit is snug and comfortable, while the sound is impressive from such a small, pentagon shaped earbud. These earbuds are not as smart as the Gear IconX or the Dash, but they still look and feel great, making them a perfect companion for exercise.

23. The Dash Headphones

Bragi - The Dash Truly Wireless Smart Earphones
Completely Wireless Headphones with Great Bass

Bragi, a German startup, released their second generation of The Dash, which sounds great, and even better than the first generation. Bragi headphones are designed for sports and listening to music rather than having smart features. They are simply a well-built, noise-isolating pair of earbuds without a cable. Their bass is stronger than Apple Airpods with roughly the same price tag.

24. Earin

totally cordless earbudsStyle: Totally wireless earbuds | Play Time: 3 hours | Frequency Response: 20-20,000Hz | Driver Size: N/A | Driver type: Balanced armature (BA) | Sensitivity: 105 dB SPL +- 2dB | Impedance: 25 ohms | Bluetooth range: 30+ feet | AptX: Yes

With a small, lightweight these earbuds are nearly invisible when you use them. The pen-sized portable charging case looks like a capsule and makes them portable and easy to charge on the go. Despite the small size of the charging case, it offers 8 hours additional charge. They are equipped with AptX to deliver high quality Bluetooth audio, and BA driver for full bodied, accurate sound and solid bass.

25. Apple Airpods 

Apple AirPods Wireless Bluetooth Headset
Another Stylish and Quality Product You Expect From Apple

Every Apple product seems to look simpler than its predecessor, and the AirPods are no exception. Their design is similar to the EarPods, but they look sleeker and are equipped with the W1 chip. They don’t feature tap controls or fitness tracking, but they can recognize touch patterns and motion to control playback.

The AirPods may not have the best sound in the category “true wireless earbuds”, but what Apple did extremely well is enhance the Bluetooth capability so hiccups and a dropped connection are very rare. Just like many Apple products, AirPods are better suited for iOS users. They can automatically connect to other iOS device with the same iCloud ID.

The AirPods are unsealed and fit snugly in the ear without falling out. Apple recently updated the iOS with a new “find my AirPods” app so you never have to worry about losing them. Should you happen to lose one earbud, though, you can purchase individual earbuds from Apple instead of having to buy a new set.

Other Sets to Consider

Pros:

  • Very comfortabel
  • Great balanced sounding profile

Beats headphones are well-known for style, comfort and heavy bass, but they can be expensive too. The Beats Studio Wireless may not be the best value Bluetooth set, but they offer effective noise cancellation and great sound quality.

Bluedio T2’s: Great on a Budget

Pros:

  • Lightweight

Inexpensive products are not always worthless. With an entirely plastic construction, the Bluedio Turbin 2 are lightweight, comfortable, and durable. They rotate to fit and will rest snugly on your head without feeling too tight. These headphones deliver plenty of bass and a pleasant mid-range. However, some users have found this pair is not comfortable for extended listening sessions because the ear cups can pinch a bit on larger heads.

Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones

Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones
Great Over the Ear Headphones without Going Over the Budget

Bohm S10 Wireless

BÖHM S10 Wireless Earbuds
Perfect Entry Level Set of Wireless Earbuds

Though the S10 falls short for sound quality and battery life, they are a great entry level set of completely wireless earbuds. If you are curious about what you want out of a wireless set, try these first to find what you do and don’t want or need. Or if you just need a set for the gym that you don’t have to worry about breaking or losing, this is the set for you.

Why is it tough to buy Bluetooth headphones in 2108?

There are a lot of things you should consider before buying your first pair of Bluetooth headphones including design, features, comfort, battery life and more.

Many big brands announced their new products at CES 2018. With so many new, amazing and very different Bluetooth headphones on the market today it is hard to predict what features and earbud sets will be most popular in the next few years.

One thing that is true across all brands is sound quality has been improving thanks to advances in Bluetooth technology. This could be taken even farther by making smart phone specific headphones, but since the market is still growing headphone makers play it safe by making devices that work for all operating systems and platforms.

Voice assistant

This feature is all over the market in the forms of, Alexa, Google and Siri. It’s interesting and convenient to use an AI voice assistant. It has rapidly become the standard for Bluetooth speakers and now many Bluetooth headphones have the feature too.

Sound quality: as is the nature of Bluetooth audio, the audio transmitted by Bluetooth goes through compression and decompression processes. The more date transferred, the better the sound quality that is delivered. AptX HD, for example, has been proven to deliver better sound quality but it is only supported by a few, high-en Android phones.

Sony also developed LDAC technology that can handle more wireless data, so wireless audio quality is no longer limited. Unfortunately only a few devices support his technology at the moment.

Apple always sets the standard with new technology and for Bluetooth they have developed Bluetooth ACC encoding. When Apple acquired Beats they developed their own Bluetooth processor which has been implemented in almost all Beats Bluetooth headphones. Because of this technology, Beats headphones will instantly pair with any Apple devices that use the same iCloud ID.

Bluetooth 5.0 is new on the market, but it is mainly designed for the Internet of Things. From a sound perspective, it is still unclear whether or not Bluetooth 5.0 actually makes much of a difference in headphones.
