Noise-cancelling headphones review

We test 15 noise-cancelling headphones, including models from Bose, Sony, Harman Kardon and Panasonic.

Last updated: 1st December 2014

Solitude doesn't come cheap, but your ears may thank you for some peace and quiet as we take a look at headphones that not only sound great, but also keep out unwanted noise.

This review shows which models:

  • have the best sound quality
  • are best at active noise cancellation
  • are best at reducing noise through passive isolation
  • are the easiest to use.

You decide what's most important, and we can help you choose the right pair.
