B&O BeoPlay H3 ANC
- Solid sounding with good bass weight
These stylish noise-cancelling in-ears are impressive all-rounders, and the fact you can now pick them up for almost £100 less makes them well worth considering.
Turned on and fully charged, the B&O H3 in-ear headphones will provide a quoted 20 hours of noise cancellation. The effect is very subtle indeed, and it will dull the noise around you rather than block it out completely.
- As comfortable as in-ears get
- Mic and three-button remote
- Class-leading sound
You can save £100 on one of our favourite pairs of in-ear headphones, which recently picked up a 2018 Best Buy Award.
You might expect a high-end pair of in-ears to impress you from the moment you open the box, and the AKG N40 earphones don’t disappoint. They're smart looking, lightweight and super comfortable, have three audio filters to choose from and, most crucially, sound great.

Bose SoundSport Wireless
- NFC pairing
- Six-hour battery life
As their name suggests, these are sport-friendly earbuds, with soft silicone rubber hooks making the fit secure enough for running or going to the gym, and IPX4 certification meaning they can handle sweat and splashes better than normal earphones. Sound-wise, they're some of the best headphones you’ll find for under £150. And the fact they're now closer to £100 makes them all the more tempting.
- Stunning insight
- Strong dynamic performance
- Great comfort
How much?! These high-end in-ears may be pricey, but they're actually pretty heavily discounted from the original £950 price tag. Unsurprisingly, they put performance first – it’s fair to say they’re the most capable in-ears we’ve heard – and deserve a source (such as a high-end portable music player) that can do them justice.

- True wireless buds
- Nine-hour battery life
- Charging case
True wireless buds (those that don't have cables connecting the earpieces) are on the rise and rise, and our favourites - these Sonys - are the only ones of that kind we can really get behind.
The 2018 Award winners offer a performance that's balanced, detailed and rhythmic. Noise-cancellation and app smarts help their case - as does their recent healthy price drop...
