Wireless headphones uses bluetooth technology to connect wirelessly to bluetooth enabled devices.  Most people would probably use to listen to music on a smartphone or MP3 player but it can also be used to connect to other devices such as: A television, laptop, computer, gaming console, etc.  Although if you will be using it for a gaming console then a gaming headset may be more suitable.

How To Choose The Best Wireless Headphones

When looking at our top 10 best wireless headphones table, the key features you may want to take into account are:

Wireless range – This is the furthest distance you can be from your music device and still stay connected.  Ideal if you’re listening to music on your laptop via Bluetooth but you want to do other things around the house.  The signal however, does get weaker if there are objects like a wall between the Bluetooth headphones and music device.

Type – This comes in the form of over-ear, on-ear or in-ear, if you’re unsure then we’ve provided a guide as shown above.  However, we do have a table of the best Bluetooth earbuds if that’s the type you prefer.

Playback time – If you’re on the go most of the time and you’re always listening to your music then you want a wireless headphone that’ll give you plenty of hours of playback time or worst case scenario you would want headphones with a 3.5mm audio jack so even if it runs out of battery you can still listen to your music.

Built-in mic – Do you also want to use the headphones to talk on the phone?

Connect to a TV –  Generally the wireless headphones which comes with a base can connect wirelessly to a TV, but if it doesn’t it’s not an issue as you can purchase a bluetooth transmitter for headphones without a base to connect wirelessly to a TV.

Foldable – Folding wireless headphones are compact as it can neatly fold up, so it’s able to fit in smaller areas.  If it’s mainly for home use then this should not be an issue but if it’s for mainly commuting or travelling then this is a feature you might want to consider.
