It is less and less common to find wired headphones, especially since many new technological devices have no other way to connect headphones other than Bluetooth.
This is the case with the new iPhone models without a 3.5 mm handsfree jack, which means that Bluetooth headphones and earphones are the only alternative for iPhone users (unless you prefer to use Lightning headphones).
However, faced with so much variety, it is normal for you to ask yourself: what are the best Bluetooth headphones that you can buy?
You will see that there are many options as new Bluetooth headphones in Pakistan are announced every month, covering different designs, features and, above all, offering different prices. These fall into three main categories:
Headband headphones (over the ear)
These are the large models that completely cover your ears. Their size means there will be more room in them to carry larger drivers, capable of providing expansive and detailed sound.
If you want something a little more compact than you can easily take on and off while travelling, then a smaller earbud that only sits on the outside of your ear is a good choice.
Mobile technology is all about portability. Many people will prefer lightweight in-ear handsfree that they can wear all day without discomfort and that can be easily slipped into a pocket and carried around.
Sony has once again shown that it knows how to make captivating wireless headphones. The previous XM3 model was already top-notch, so it’s no surprise that the Japanese tech giant is back with an equally captivating device.
The XM4s look almost identical to the previous model, although the ear cups are slightly larger and a visible sensor on the left allows auto-off.
It stands out above all how comfortable they are, along with their excellent build quality gives it that ultra-premium touch.
If you’re looking for headphones to wear for long periods, these are the best you can get.
Cambridge Audio Melomania 1
Wireless earbuds are all the rage, but not everyone can afford AirPods, let alone AirPods Pro. Luckily, there are cheaper alternatives, as with several Cambridge Audio models.
The Melomania 1s are reasonably priced, putting them in the budget earphones range despite being extremely high quality.
These earphones are very small and light. Their bullet shape makes them unusual and original, but they fit very securely and comfortably in your ear.
The IPX5 rating means they’re splash and sweat-resistant, making them ideal for use when working out.
The compact size is also seen in the charging case: it is very small, making it a super portable device. The case has decent magnets to hold the earphones in and a set of LEDs on the front to indicate battery level.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II
This model of wireless headphones is undoubtedly up to the most demanding. The wider headband provides a firm fit, and the cups press around the ears with a good level of pressure.
The foam on the cases will give you an incredibly soft and luxurious feel. Bose claims that the cases are made from synthetic protein leather and contain a silicone bead to reduce noise.
You can connect the QC35 earphones to two devices simultaneously and seamlessly switch between them. Just pause one and play on the other. Wireless performance is excellent, but you can also use the headphones wired if you need to, as not all devices have Bluetooth.
Apple AirPods 2
Apple’s second generation of wireless handsfree, AirPods 2, offers many improvements over the previous generation that make a switch to the newest model worthwhile.
You can enjoy faster connection speeds, talk time, and compatibility with Siri, Apple’s assistant. In addition, the wireless charging compatibility has managed to capture our attention.
Of course, regarding the sound quality (which is still excellent), we have not found too much difference with the previous generation model.
Being an Apple product, it will be the one that offers the best compatibility with all the devices of the apple company. And if you are one of those who are one hundred per cent loyal to Apple, then the AirPods 2 are the Bluetooth handsfree you need.
Beats handsfree has always been synonymous with costly headphones. However, the Beats Flex model changes this idea at a more than affordable price.
Unless you buy the black model, this is a very colourful neckband handsfree that keeps it simple for those who can’t afford to spend hundreds of rupees on handsfree. In addition to black, they are available in ‘yuzu yellow’, ‘smoke grey’ and ‘fire blue’.
Although wireless handsfree is the booming part of the market, don’t underestimate neckband headphones. Their design allows them not to be lost if they fall, and they can be left hanging around the neck when not in use as if it were a necklace.
