The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones are a strong contender to the Sony MX4 with thousands of five-star reviews. Bose is known for their sound and they know how to do it well.

The noise cancellation has been described as “undeniably good” with a “vibrant, lively character and well-balanced soundstage”. Design-wise, they’re extremely elegant and come in a variety of colours.

But the most impressive feature has to be the 4 in-built microphones that pick up and isolate your voice while on a phone call, while cancelling the noise around you. Clever, right?

What customers are saying: “Bose's best ever microphone system. The noise cancellation is out of this world.”

Apple AirPods Pro - From $295

Best feature: Spatial Audio feature, seamless connectivity and accessible design.

While Apple is arguably the biggest tech brand in the world, these AirPods are popular in their own right. 

Aside from their sleek, white design and active noise cancellation, they are packed with impressive features.

The new Apple AirPods include a sophisticated Spatial Audio feature with dynamic head tracking creating cinema-like surround sound.

They also feature Adaptive EQ which automatically tunes music to the shape of your ear. If you’re worried about the fit, don’t be. You have the choice of three soft, tapered silicone tips for a customisable fit.

With over 24 hours of battery life and instant connectivity to other Apple devices, it’s no surprise they’re as popular as ever.

What customers are saying: “Amazing product with awesome surround sound. Worth paying the extra money for the excellent quality.”

Sennheiser have long been regarded as a strong name in the sound and tech industry, and these earbuds live up to their reputation.

Aside from their exceptional design, the sound experience is second to none with bespoke 7mm dynamic drivers to tailor your listening experience as well as built-in equalizers to deliver immaculate, balanced sound.

They have all the standard high-performing features like noise-cancelling abilities and Transparent Hearing, but Sennheiser have added an underrated feature with the ergonomic design built for 28 hours of use for any earbud type.

The earbuds connect to Siri and Google Assistant with their customisable touch control panels that are also linked for Smart Pause, to stop playing audio when one earbud is removed and resumes when you put it back in your ear. Clever stuff.
