Here's our round-up of the best on-ear headphones on sale right now, from budget buys to premium picks - including noise-cancelling and wireless options.

In-ears are portable and pocketable but cn be sonically limited, while over-ears give you full immersion and noise-isolation but are bulky along with it. On-ear headphones conceivably offer the best balance between the two.

B&W's first go at wireless headphones really hit the spot. The company took its excellent P5 Series 2s and took away the wire - but none of the brilliance. Great sound and gorgeous design, minus the inconvenience of cables. That's what we like to hear.

The best Lightning headphones we've heard. The M2Ls deliver a punchy, detailed sound thanks largely to the excellent integrated 24-bit DAC and amp. There's also a built-in mic for taking calls and using Siri, as well as controls on the earpad.
