The 10 Best Wireless Headphones in 2023

1.    Sony WH-1000XM4

The Sony WH-1000XM4 is the best wireless headphone we have tried and it has an upgrade to the WH-1000XM5. It has an industry-standard active noise cancellation cutting down traffic noise and low rumbles. The headphone can also last for 37 hours and they also have transparency mode. If you are a fan of bass then the headphone is undoubtedly for you. It thumps in the ear and the overall sound quality is okay. There is also a companion app you can use to EQ the sound settings. It also has what is called Sony 360 that delivers a more immersive listening experience. You have to subscribe to their service to have access to that feature.

2.    Apple Airpods Max

The Apple Airpods Max is Apple’s first attempt at making an over-the-head wireless headphone. It is simply the best wireless headphone for iPhones because of how it connects seamlessly. The Airpods Max has incredible active noise cancellation and sound quality. It has a unique and standout look with a digital crown like we have on the Apple Watch. The headphone doesn’t have any 3.5mm port and you can clearly agree they were made for iPhone user. It also doesn’t support Hi-Res Audio codecs which is bizarre considering its price. The Airpods Max has a 20Hrs battery life and the carry case doesn’t do much in terms of protecting the headphone.

3.    Jabra Elite 45H

The Jabra Elite 45H is another superb wireless headphone with up to 50Hrs battery life and 40mm drivers. It sits comfortably on the ear instead of over the ear like other headphones. The headphone is lightweight and doesn’t cause any fatigue over long usage periods. It also has some buttons that are used to control the headphone. The Jabra Elite 45H also supports voice assistants from Google, Amazon, Alexa, and Siri. There is also an app that lets you fine-tune the sound to your taste. It is best in class for battery and 10 minutes of charging can give you 10 hours of listening time. The Elite 45H is one of the best wireless headphones of 2023.

4.    Soundcore Life Q35

The Anker Soundcore Life Q35 are decent wireless headphones that are comfortable to wear for long hours. You get high-quality sound from the headphone because they support Hi-Res audio codecs. It comes with an adjustable ANC which can be tuned according to your environment. The headphone is bass heavy and they thump in the ear. There is also an app that lets you customize the sound to your preference. You get 44 hours of battery life and they can also be used with a wire found in the carry case. The storage bag is small and can be carried around easily.

5.    Bose 700

The Bose 700 is one of the best wireless headphones in 2023 and they have industry-standard noise cancellation. They even support ANC during calls and it is superb. The headphone has 11 different noise cancellation modes meaning there is something for every environment. They have amazing sound quality and they are competing closely with the Sony WH-1000XM5. The sound is perfectly balanced with noticeable bass. Battery life is 20hrs and that is where it might fall short with other industry-leading active noise-canceling wireless headphones.

6.    Sony WH-1000XM5

The Sony WH-1000XM5 is the successor of the already great WH-1000XM4s. it comes with a redesign and improved sound quality over what was already good. The noise cancellation was also improved but they cost a bit more than their predecessor. There is also a companion app that can be used to EQ to sound. The headphone also packs all the features found on the XM4s. no doubt it is one of the best wireless headphones around.

The Soundcore Life Q30 is a budget wireless headphone and it comes in under $100. I personally enjoyed using it, especially because of its superb sound quality. It has thumping bass and balanced overall sound quality. The active noise cancellation is great as well as the transparency mode is okay too. There is also an app that can be used to tweak the sound. The sound is better with the ANC turned on. You can connect the headphone to two devices at a time. They also leak audio at high volume and people around you will hear what you are listening to. If you are on a budget this is the best wireless headphone you can get.

There are physical buttons on the right ear cup for volume and playback and power. The headphone also has an app that is used to tweak the sound of the headphones.
