Re: Best wireless headphones
I've had more headphones that I should admit to, however I've rather loved my Bose SoundLink® on-ear headphones (bluetooth). They are "on ear" headphones, but they are just so comfortable and work super well.
Bose have recently released the QC35, and as an owner of the QC25's that I use for flights (my work allows me travel quite a bit) I can certainly recommend the noise cancelling and comfort of these headphones. I can only imagine that the QF35 wireless version is wonderful.
One thing to consider, if you are using non apple hardware that supports different codecs (i.e. aptX) might be of interest, however I largely live in an Apple world so of no use to me.
Things to consider with wireless headphones:
1 - If you use multi devices (iPhone & iPad) make sure you chose a product that support multiple connections to avoid complicated switching
2 - Make sure that the switch to turn them off and on won't accidentally turn on in your bag, rendering your batteries flat
3 - Make sure they have the ability to plug a wire in, just in case an airline doesn't allow bluetooth wifi or your batteries go flat 30 minutes into a 5 hour flight
4 - Headphones are (in my experience) more likely to fail than most of my tech, purchase locally via a reputable vendor (I purchased some Klipsh bluetooth headphones from Amazon USA and shipped to Australia, not a great idea when they broke after 3 months)
5 - Try them all on, use them all, ask many people & take advantage of any no questions returns periods if your headphones don't do what you want
Also many Bluetooth headphones sound great because of EQ changes, where they change the music to suit the headphone capabilities. Not a big issue for most of us, however if the sound is a bit too good and you can head something a bit odd, this is likely what you are hearing.
