Sony's 1000X series headphones have been our favorite for years. With the combination of aptX and wireless supported codecs, combined with Sony's noise cancellation techniques, we fell in love with Sony's 1000X range of headphones.
Whether you travel a lot or want to close off the outside world, the 1000X series offers exactly what you need. The M2 may suffice for your needs, but the M3 throws in improved noise reduction algorithms and styling to make the upgrade worth it.

Want something that offers great battery life, style, and lots of customization options? The Jabra Elite 85 hour speakerphone has the answers to all your needs. That said, purists complain about the lack of high-end codec support and there are punchy headphones on the market at this moment in price.
However, when you consider that Jabra's Elite 85 Hour headphones are Bose's first attempt at ANC wireless premium headphones, the result is quite commendable. We can't wait to see what the next premium ANC headphone company will accomplish.
If you want an alternative to the Sony VG-1000XM3, this is it.

Sennheiser is known for its high quality audio products, but the Wireless Impulse is just a class apart. With a leather headband and stainless steel arms, it is the perfect combination of premium design and solid build quality.
Active noise cancellation is not isolating, but should be sufficient for most users. If you don't mind splurge on a quality pair of premium earbuds, you can't go wrong with the wireless boost.

Audio engineering has a rich history when it comes to the class of high quality audio products. The ATH-M50xBT carries that legacy forward by cutting the umbilical cord, delivering studio-quality sound wirelessly.
The ATH-M50xBTs are designed for very high-end sound, with 45mm drivers and a frequency range of 15-28,00Hz, and it shows - we were very impressed with the warm, round sound.
The ATH-M50xBT headphones also performed well in terms of battery life and Bluetooth. One area where they aren't good enough is the microphone is not strong enough and you may end up trying to make phone calls with them.
However, these studio headphones are classy and you probably wouldn't buy them for phone calls, as they are still great when it comes to their primary purpose.

Headphones AKG headphones n60nc wireless sound like headphones, which must be much more expensive than they are.
At their mid-range prices, the headphones offer fantastic value for money, with excellent sound quality and noise-canceling performance on par with much more premium entries on this list.
The only gripe we had with the AKG n60nc headphones is that they are not as comfortable as they should be. This makes them poor companions for extended music sessions.
On a positive note, the advantage of this is that these are very compact headphones and if you're willing to compromise then this is great for the price.

Wireless headphones have come a long way thanks to some significant improvements in Bluetooth technology, with many headphones also supporting Hi-Res audio wirelessly.
One of the main advantages of these wireless headphones, especially with ones like the ATH-SR5BT audio tech, is that you can use them as wired as well as wireless headphones. They also play well with most musical genres, making them all-round.
Portability won't be an issue either, with the company claiming the headphones provide 40 hours of playback on a single charge.
Since this is a pair of mid-range headphones, some premium features such as active noise cancellation and multi-pairing devices are missing. It just depends on how important the extra features are to your convenience.
