10 Best Headphones For Gift Giving

  1. Jabra Elite 85h Headphones

Jabra Elite 85h wireless headphones look stylish and comfortable, offering class-leading battery life and excellent ANC (active noise canceling) performance. The Elite 85h also sound incredible. These premium wireless headphones also come with many personalization features in sound profiles, so the Elite 85h is easy to recommend. Read the review of Jabra Elite 85h here.

  1. Marshall Major III Wireless On-Ear Headphones

Marshall Major III is a nice pair of rock-inspired wireless headphones. They look stylish, have a sturdy design, and have an overall well-balanced sound. The headphones have decent top and mid ranges and can be fully folded, making them excellent for traveling. Check out the full review of Marshall Major headphones here.

  1. Marshall Monitor Headphones

Marshall Monitor is another set of rock-inspired headphones from Marshall. Similarly, these have a cool design and excellent sound quality. The headphones are comfortable, and the build quality feels great, thanks to the brass and metal design combined with textured plastic and leathery features.

  1. Sennheiser RS175 wireless TV Headphones

The Sennheiser RS 175 wireless TV headphones have a comfortable fit and impressive wireless sound, making them a great-performing pair of wireless headphones. The headphones also have an extended range and connect easily to your TV, laptop, or any audio device with the included cables. The Bluetooth connection is rock-solid and includes some nifty features, including bass boost modes. If you want RF wireless headphone that delivers top-notch performance primarily for TV and movie watching, you can’t miss out on these cans.

  1. Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Headphones

If you’re tired of untangling headphones cables or fiddling with wired remotes, Sennheiser Momentum true wireless earbuds are an excellent alternative. Sennheiser Momentum has a stylish, minimalistic design, smart controls, and incredible sound. The earbuds have a good four hours of battery life, and the case has enough juice that will fully charge the earbuds two times. The earbuds may feel uncomfortable to some folks, but the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless earbuds still offer premium audio in a neat and well-designed package.

  1. JVC HA-S90BN Over-Ear Headphones

The JVC HA-S90BN over-ear wireless headphones offer plenty of features for the money. The headphones have superb battery life, excellent wireless stability, decent active noise cancellation, and customizable sound profiles. The JVC HA-S90BN’s great design and comfortable ear cups only add to the appeal. However, audiophiles may find some issues with noise cancellation, but the JVC HA-S90BN still delivers plenty of features for the price.

  1. Sony WF-1000X Wireless Headphones

Sony WF-1000X wireless headphones come with impressive noise-cancellation, rich sound, NFC, and unique design. The battery is more than good, and it’s got fantastic noise cancellation. If you want a pair of truly wireless earbuds with excellent noise-cancellation and sound, we can’t recommend the Sony WF-1000X enough.

  1. Rowkin Surge Wireless Headphones

Rowkin Surge are true wireless headphones for the fitness conscious. The headphones have bendable hooks for a snug fit around the ears, on-board physical controls, and Google Assistant and Siri integration. The audio sounds okay, but we expected it to be better given its price. Given its features sets, the Rowkin Surge is a decent choice for exercising, intense workouts, and other physical activities where durability trumps audio quality. Read more about Rowkin Surge in the review.

  1. Bliiq Hummingbird Wireless Sports Headphones

Bliiq Hummingbird is a wireless sports headphones designed for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. The Bliiq Hummingbird in-ear earbuds come with splash and sweat resistance, fuller and balanced sound quality, dynamic tonal range, and ambient sound mode. The earbuds also have great battery life with up to 14 hours of music playback at a single charge. The earbuds fit snugly and overall, the Bliiq Hummingbird (full review here) is a reasonably priced and decent sounding wireless sports headphones.

  1. Beats By Dre Solo 3 Wireless Headphones

Beats by Dre Solo 3 is definitely the pair for the more fashion-focused recipient with class-leading battery life, superb wireless stability, and energetic, punchy sound. Even though the Beats Solo 3 is designed to work seamlessly with iOS devices, the headphones have no connectivity issues with Android devices and they’re a great choice no matter your phone brand. However, justifying the high price, we were less impressed with the use of not-so-great leatherette in the headphone. Even so, if you like headphones with punchy bass and great battery life, it’s a great buy.
