The best headphones 2022: the finest audio options compared

The best headphones are always evolving with new active noise cancellation technology, personalized EQ settings, enhanced mic quality, and new innovations in smart features. That means big name brands like Sony, Bose, Apple and even Razer are at the top of their game right now – perfect if you need that musical quality that even the best gaming headsets can’t provide. 

You’ll be spending between $250 and $300 (around £270) for the very best audio money can buy right now, which might sound like a tall order considering sub-$100/£100 headphones can still tout features like ANC and Bluetooth 5.0. However, if you’re shopping for quality you’ll notice the best headphones not only enhance these features with their own streamlined implementation and raw power, but also offer the longevity of use you would expect from a premium purchase. You can, after all, buy three pairs of $100 headphones over three years or spend that time with the best of the best.

And these headphones really do represent the industry’s most advanced audio offerings. From the raw power of the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones to the gorgeous design of the Bose 700, all the way through to the effortlessly streamlined AirPods Pro, you’ll find ear candy suited for every need here.
