Bluetooth wireless headphones allow you to enjoy your music unencumbered by cables tethered to your music device. That’s great news for those of us who tend to get a bit tangled or just annoyed by loose wires when we listen to tunes, podcasts, or the radio. Available in various designs, such as earbud, in-ear, on-ear, and over-ear (open, closed, semi-closed), wireless headphones are about movement, convenience, and portability. While a good set will provide high-fidelity sound, bear in mind that any wireless technology is bound to sacrifice some sound quality when compared to wired versions. There is also the added expense of batteries. On the plus side, many hi-fi headsets connect to your smartphone so you don’t have to worry about missing calls while you’re using them.
LG Electronics Tone Ultra (HBS-800): This headset features ambient noise cancellation (ANC), JBL signature sound, and advanced multipoint, meaning that two Bluetooth-enabled phones can be connected to the same headset. The headphones are earbud style and connect to a contoured neck ring that rests on the user’s shoulders. Suggested retail: $119.99 US
Sennheiser MM 400-X: Winner of the What Hifi best wireless headphones Award for 2012, these compact over-ear phones are aptX codec-enabled for optimal wireless sound. Lightweight and foldable, while still delivering perhaps the best sound of the bunch, the MM 400-Xs headphones are a bit costlier than most, with a list price of $269.95 US.
Kinivo BTH240: On the lower end of the spectrum are these on-ear phones for wireless streaming and hands-free calling. Your music player can be controlled from the headset, which is chargeable via micro USB. The Kinivo’s feature a long battery life (up to 10hrs), deliver decent audio, and are comfortable and lightweight, but don’t expect the best hi-fi sound for a headset that sells for $24.99 US.
Philips SHB7000/28: Boasting “high-performance wireless sound,” this over-ear headset featuring 40mm neodymium drivers for delivering clear treble and deep bass, is well constructed and a good deal if purchased on sale. The consensus seems to be that you can find better-sounding headphones at the list price of $79.99, but at half price from Amazon these phones are worth a look.
JayBird BlueBuds X: If you like using earbuds for when you’re exercising and are willing to spend, you can’t do much better than these high-performance sport headphones. They’re guaranteed sweat-proof and feature “Suresound” and “SHIFT” proprietary technologies to ensure fidelity that is equal or close to wired earbuds. JayBird BlueBuds are a great high-end choice at around $150 US.
Logitech UE9000: Chosen as Trusted Review’s best wireless headphones, the Logitech UE9000 offer a wealth of features including removable cables and top-of-the-line sound. These gems are not cheap, however, with a starting price of over $700 US, though you can find them for less than half the list price.
Sony DR-BTN200: Sony’s new “affordable” Bluetooth headphones are over-ear phones with decent sound, exceptional battery life (40 hours!), and acceptable build quality for the price. If the list price of $129.99 doesn’t exactly sound like a bargain, you can likely pick them up for around $80 if you shop around.
Creative WP-450: Great sounding, comfortable, on-ear folding phones for a fair price. The WP-450s from Creative offer high performance, solid build quality, and 8-10 hours of listening time. Listed at $149.99 US, but available for around $70-$90, these phones offer plenty of bang for your buck.
