This system lets you control the noise and your listening experience through 11 different modes. Furthermore, it has a robust four-microphone system to give you more control over your calls. With built-in Alexa and Google Assistant features, you can get weather updates and manage other events with ease.

Sony WH-1000XM4

Developed by one of the world's audio tech giants, the WH-1000XM4 is a robust Bluetooth headset. It features buttonless touch control, effected by swipes or taps on the headphone panel. Its 40 mm hybrid drivers deliver sound from a broad frequency range, while its QN1 noise-cancelling processor promises nearly flawless Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). The set has 5 microphones with advanced signal processing which give you seamless hands-free calling. With upto 30 hours of battery life, a mere 10 minute charge can give you 5 hours of use. This headset hosts a plethora of smart features, like simultaneous two-device connection, wearing detection (pauses if the set is removed), smart listening and ambient sound control (balancing ANC levels according to your activity and environment, respectively), automatic pausing on speaking,  

Shure AONIC 50

Shure's AONIC 50 sports an adjustable faux-leather-stitched headband and faux-leather-wrapped (removable) high-density foam earpads, which make this over-the-ear headphone-microphone set one rated high on passive noise cancellation. It has both slider and button controls on the right ear-cup for music control, pairing (to two devices) and noise cancellation. (The last has an environment mode, which allows ambient audio to play through the speakers.) The set's 50 mm drivers deliver clear, neutral sound over a wide frequency range which is not especially tuned to only, say, the bass spectrum. The mid-range and treble are given equal emphasis here. All the major Bluetooth codecs are supported, as is the Shure app, which has ANC level adjustment ability and an inbuilt media player with its own equalizer.     

Sennheiser Momentum 3

The Momentum 3's ear-cups and headband are crafted from genuine leather, so comfort of use over long periods is ensured. The controls are on the right ear-cup, while the microphone (which can be muted) is on the left one. Aside from the usual controls, there is also a Multi-Function Button (MFB). These headphones let you experience the three basic ranges of the audio spectrum (bass, mid-range and treble) together in perfect harmony. The Smart Pause feature is effected by simply taking off the headset. The Sennheiser Smart Control app has an inbuilt equalizer and allows you to choose from among three different noise-cancellation modes. Lastly, there is a Transparent Hearing mode, which allows ambient sounds from your environment to come through.  


Of a compact and foldable design, thus making it easily portable, this headphone-microphone set is perfect for the frequent commuter / traveler in you. (In fact, the accessories include an AKG airplane adapter.) Their sound reproduction is faithful to frequencies across the entire spectrum, making tonality and smoothness more of a priority than just booming bass. They perform very well in the noise isolation department, with around 15, 17 and 34 decibels of attenuation in the bass, mid-range and treble spectra, respectively, thus enabling you to listen to your music and enjoy it at low volume. The power, track and volume controls are on the right ear-cup, while the left one sports the USB power port and a 3.5 mm jack. Lastly, although it supports the older Bluetooth 4.0, this set's latency is less than that of most other Bluetooth headsets.
