Best True Wireless with ANC
Lypertek PurePlay Z5
The PurePlay Z5 are one of the best, if not the best, true wireless models for daily use. They have ANC, Ambient mode, wireless charging, accompanying app and more along with truly suburb sound quality for a low price.
Best True Wireless for Sound Quality
These don’t have a lot of features, no ANC, ambient mode or wireless charging, however they are designed for ultimate sound quality and in that they succeed
Best Wired Earphones under £100
SoundMAGIC E11C Silver
We have found the E11C to be a grown-up earphone with a keen knack for giving a clear and accurate presentation across the board.
Best Wired Earphones £100-£300
The OH300 really does a lot right, especially when you take into account the £299 price tag. With a detailed and even-handed sound signature that is tonally accurate yet not boring.
Best Wired Earphones £300-£1000
Campfire Audio Holocene
The Holocene are almost a scaled down Andromeda, but with a twist of their own of course, they are slightly warmer and less airy in the top end but still have a very enjoyable sound.
Best Wired Earphones £1000-£2000
64 Audio U6t
They are such an easy earphone to live with, providing a comfortable fit and refined sound that many fail to match, this is proof that 64 Audio really do know what they are doing when it comes to sound
Best Wired Earphones £2000+
64 Audio tia Fourte
If you are looking for a true hi-fi experience, the Fourte deliver; with a more musical yet well balanced sound signature, effortless, crystal clear highs and impeccable soundstaging qualities.
Best Wired Studio Earphones
If you are looking for neutrality, the ER-4SR are the industry standard – they do not flatter you with a smooth sound or hide any mistakes in recordings, so not great for everyday listening but superb if you want to hear every detail.
Best Wireless Headphones under £100
SoundMAGIC once again show that they are unrivalled when it comes to creating budget models with excellent sound quality, the P23BT has such an enjoyable sound that you quickly forget they only cost £50.
Best Wireless Headphones £100+
Solid build quality, paired with great sound and effective ANC for under £120 is something rarely heard of, add to that fantastic mic quality and you have somewhat of a bargain.
Best Headphones £100-£500
The latest addition to the HD6xx series comes with improved clarity, these are detailed and open sounding and paired with the excellent comfort the HD6xx series are known for, make these a superb headphone for the price.
Best Headphones £500-£1000
Audeze LCD-2 Classic
The LCD-2 Classic are a well controlled, but ultimately warm sounding headphone. They offer up a fatigue free sound with good width and height. If you listen to electronic centred music, old school rap/hip-hop and smoother more acoustic music they are a joy to listen to.
Best Headphones £1000-£3000
Instead of going for the usual neutral-ish sound signature of most high-end models, Final instead decided to make the D8000 enjoyable, with very punchy and dynamic bass and impressive clarity across the board, the D8000 stand out from the crowd.
Best Headphones £3000+
These are resolving yet enjoyable, they have a reference like tuning without coming across clinical, they have an honest presentation without too much colouration or sweetness to the sound.
Best Headphone DAC/Amp under £100
Periodic Audio Rhodium
The Periodic Audio Rhodium is brilliant for the money, a USB-C dongle DAC/Amp that has a clean sound, even if the output power is a little limited.
Best Headphone Amp £100-£300
JDS Labs Atom Amp+
The Atom Amp+ is a neutral and linear sounding amp that will pair well with most headphones and earphones on the market – it measures well and doesn’t cost a lot, what more could you want?
Best Headphone Amp £300-£1000
JDS Labs Element III
The Element III comes with an all new digital volume encoder and optical input, you get perfect channel balance for sensitive IEM’s along with auto-gain and enough output power for most over-ears too – backed by that same linear sound JDS Labs are known for. They even added an opitical input, very handy for gamers or those who listen to CD’s .
Best Headphone Amp £1000+
Burson Soloist 3X GT
This amp is perfect for those who need the best from their hard to drive headphones, the perfect pairing for those select few headphones that need multiple watts of power – it’s dual mono, fully discrete design doesn’t compromise when it comes to sound quality either.
