You want over-ear headphones? You've come to the right place. We've got everything from high-end home-listening cans to noise-cancelling and wireless models.

In-ear headphones might be the most portable, but for a true hi-fi listening experience, it's got to be a pair of over-ears. These are the best for all budgets, from under £20 all the way up to what we'll just call "silly money".

Grado SR80e

Reviewed on 6th February 2017 at
£89

Focal Utopia

Reviewed on 5th April 2017 at
£3,250
