Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless £330 £225 at Peter Tyson

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 £350 £279 at Peter Tyson
A breakaway from the QuietComfort range, the 700s are the beginning of a more premium series. Both the acoustics and digital signal processing have been redesigned. Comfort and aesthetics are spot-on too and, sonically, they're great.View Deal

Libratone Q Adapt noise-cancelling £220 £105.44 at Amazon

Samsung Gear IconX (2018 Edition) £200 £179 at Very
We prefer the sound of the Sonys above, but there could be a home for these Samsungs among those who simply want a reliable pair of wireless earbuds with excellent battery life.View Deal

Over-ear headphones

AKG K92 over-ear headphones £50 £38 at Amazon
"
AKG strikes gold with these great value headphones" is what we said when they were £50! Now they're reduced, these detailed, smooth and rhythmically sound over-ears are the best budget wired headphones currently available to buy.View Deal

Grado SR80e open-back over-ears £89 £89 at Richer Sounds
The SR80es are some of the best 'affordable audiophile' headphones around. They might look retro, but their performance is thoroughly modern. Just be aware that they're open-back so let a lot of sound in and out and are therefore better for home than on-the-go use.View Deal
