1. Apple AirPods (2nd Gen.) Charging Case

With the new AirPods, you'll experience wireless headphones in a whole new way. Just take them out of the charger and they're ready to use with your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. With a tap of a finger, you set up the AirPods and they work like magic. They're automatically turned on and always connected. The AirPods even detect when they're in your ears and pause when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, call someone or get directions, say "Hey Siri" and what you want to do. You can wear just one or both AirPods and double-tap to play a track or skip to the next when listening to music or podcasts. AirPods offer 5 hours of playback and 3 hours of talk time per charge. And with a charging case that holds additional charges for 24 hours of playback, they'll keep up with whatever you're doing. Need a quick charge? After just 15 minutes in the charging case, you can listen to 3 hours of music or talk for 2 hours. Controlled by the new Apple H1 chip, AirPods use optical and accelerometry sensors to tell if they're in your ear. The H1 chip automatically routes audio and activates the microphone - whether you use both AirPods or just one. And when you're on the phone or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer with speech recognition and wavefocused microphones help reduce outside noise and make your voice clearer.

Case can be loaded with a Lightning Connector. Case does not support wireless charging.

2. Sony WH-1000XM4

The technology with two noise sensors and two microphones on each ear cup detects ambient noise and sends the data to the HD noise minimization processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the QN1 then processes and minimizes noise for different acoustic environments in real time. Together with a new Bluetooth Audio SoC (System-on-Chip), it detects music and sound signals over 700 times per second, as well as acoustic characteristics between the driver unit and the ears. The WH-1000XM4 headphones use two technologies to maximize noise reduction performance. Unique Air Pressure Optimization ensures optimal sound at high altitudes, while Personalized Noise Cancelling analyzes specific sound-affecting characteristics such as head size, glasses and hair, then adjusts the sound specifically for you. LDAC transmits approximately three times the amount of data (at a maximum transfer rate of 990 Kbps) as conventional BLUETOOTH audio, so you can enjoy high-resolution audio content at nearly the same quality as wired connections. Built into the QN1 HD noise reduction processor is an analog amplifier for unmatched signal-to-noise ratio, low distortion, and superior sound quality for portable devices. Featuring 40mm drivers with liquid crystal polymer diaphragms, these headphones reproduce powerful bass as well as the full frequency spectrum up to 40kHz. Recover all compressed files in real time . DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) optimizes compressed music files in real time through Edge AI (artificial intelligence) developed with Sony Music Entertainment. Dynamic detection of instrumentation, musical style, and other characteristics of each track restores high frequencies for rich sound. Absolutely everyday with Speak-to-Chat. Intelligent Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses the music and switches to ambient sound whenever you talk to someone. So you can talk with headphones on, for example, when you don't have a hand free. Precise Voice Pickup technology, five built-in microphones, and advanced audio signal processing detect and respond to your voice. When you have finished the conversation, the music continues automatically.

4. Apple EarPods

Unlike conventional round earphones, the design of the EarPods is based on the geometry of the ear. That's why they fit more people than any other earpiece. The speakers in the EarPods are designed to minimise sound loss and maximise sound output, giving you high-quality sound. The EarPods with Lightning Connector have a built-in remote control that lets you adjust volume, control music and video playback, and answer or end calls at the touch of a button.

6. Sony WF-1000XM4

Every part of Sony's WF-1000XM4 headphones has been redesigned. For example, the Integrated Processor V1, specially designed by Sony to suppress more noise than ever before, a driver with improved performance, noise-sensing microphones, and the innovative noise-isolating ear tips for an even better fit. Sony's WF-1000XM4 headphones support wireless High-Resolution Audio thanks to LDAC. With specially designed 6mm drivers, these headphones reproduce dynamic sound despite their small size, while the powerful diaphragm enables rich bass. The Integrated Processor V1 also improves sound quality and reduces distortion. Even compressed music files are upscaled, with more advanced DSEE Extreme technology providing an intense, comprehensive listening experience. Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses music and switches to ambient sound whenever you talk to someone. This means you don't have to put down the headphones with microphone if, for example, you don't have a hand free. As soon as you end the conversation, the music automatically continues. Speak-to-Chat uses an accelerometer to detect and respond to your voice. The feature is based on Precise Voice Pickup technology, which combines four microphones and sensors with advanced audio signal processing.

Precise Voice Pickup technology uses beamforming microphones and a bone conduction sensor, allowing the WF-1000XM4 wireless headphones with microphone to clearly pick up your voice during hands-free calls - at home, in a coffee shop, or wherever you are. Plus, noise reduction ensures you hear the person you're talking to more clearly, even in noisy environments. Use all day, charge in minutes. With 8 hours of battery life, you can listen to music with your Sony Bluetooth headphones throughout the workday. Charges in the charging case allow for an additional 16 hours.
