My criteria for this review is what someone seeking good all-around headphones today probably wants:
Closed-back for isolation, ideally with active noise cancellation (ANC)
Portable enough to fit in a small bag; suitable for listening at a desk, bringing on an airplane, and wearing outside
Definitely under $500, and ideally under $300
For everyday use I’ve been using AirPods for the past few months and absolutely love them. I listen to almost exclusively podcasts or audiobooks with them, but they’re fine for music.1 If you’re looking for where to start with Bluetooth headphones, this is a good resource.
