Fortunately, Bluetooth wireless technology has never been this good, and now you can listen wirelessly without worrying about an interrupted connection or static hiss.
Earphone manufacturers are struggling to take advantage of this fact and have created some very stylish options in recent years.
The design, durability and improved audio quality are getting better and better.

2) Apple AirPods 2 (2nd generation)
The second generation Apple AirPods are an instantly recognizable pair of Bluetooth headsets and a pair that you should seriously consider if you are an iPhone user.
The updated version features the new H1 chip, which improves connection efficiency and performance. Users now have 50% more talk time and an extra hour of battery life. They also come in a convenient wireless charging case that consumes them again.
Double tapping can also activate Siri and there is a built-in microphone so you can take voice calls.
In addition, music will be paused automatically when you take it out of your ears. To get the best out of it, you'll need a device running iOS 10 or later.
The impressive noise-canceling headphones on the Bose QuietComfort 35ii have been updated to support Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Just press the dedicated button to ask a question or give a command. You can also adjust the active noise cancellation technology to different levels, depending on what is happening around you.
The headphones are light and comfortable enough for long periods of listening, with the only real complaint being that the design is not really attractive. Still, you buy headphones for listening, not looking, and these are some of the best on the market.

The E8s last four hours between each charge, with the leather case providing eight more.

On the outside, there's not much of a difference, but Beats Studio 3 headphones have evolved into a superior pair of noise-canceling cans.
The headphones continuously detect noise around you (via two small outward-facing microphones) and adapt noise cancellation to provide the best possible audio experience.
If you own an iPhone, it's an even better bet, as Apple's internal W1 chip matches your phone effortlessly and creates a stronger connection. The only downside is that they are still a little expensive.
