Wireless headphones provide a seamless and convenient listening experience, making it easy for you to enjoy music and podcasts on the go without having to fuss around with cables. With more and more smartphone manufacturers eschewing the physical headphone jack in their latest designs, a good pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones is fast becoming an essential purchase for many people.

Depending on your preference, you’ll want to weigh up whether to get wireless earbuds or wireless wireless over-ear headphones – you’ll have plenty of options no matter which type you choose. While wireless headphones have existed in some form for a surprisingly long time, with radio-based examples having been used as early as the 1960s, modern ones use Bluetooth, so you’ll need to make sure the device you want to use them with has the capacity to connect via Bluetooth.
