Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

The battery is also a big plus since the company claims that you can get roughly 30 hours of playtime on a single charge. Additionally, it also claims that you can charge the device quickly as a 10-minute charge is said to be enough for 5 hours of playtime. This pair of headphones also comes with Alexa voice assistant built into it. This allows you to access information, music and calls, all at a touch of a button.

Sony WH-1000XM4

The Sony WH-1000XM4 are the successors to the critically-acclaimed Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones mentioned above. Featuring an almost identical design to its predecessor, the Sony WH-1000XM4 employs the same 40mm drivers and the QN1 noise-cancelling processor as the Sony WH-1000XM3. However, newer, improved algorithms are said to bring up to 20 per cent increase in ANC performance in comparison to the previous model. The company also made an effort to address user feedback it received from customers for the 1000XM3s and added LDAC codec support as well as multipoint connection, which allows the headphones to be connected to two devices simultaneously. It has a bunch of other useful features as well.

Want to listen to music all day long? Well, the company claims that you should get a 20-hour battery life on a single charge.

B&O Play H4 Wireless Headphones

The B&O Play H4 is said to be specially designed for musicians as for them, the audio experience has to be rich. The device has anodised aluminum earcup discs covered with foam and leather. This is coupled with stainless steel sliders and a headband covered with soft lambskin. All of these have been done to ensure that your experience is both sound-rich and comfortable.
