Over-Ear Headphones: Beats Studio 3

These super-comfortable headphones from industry leaders Beats are the perfect over-ear fit to help you focus on your music. Pure Adaptive Noise-Cancelling (Pure ANC) actively blocks out external noise and real-time audio calibration provides a premium listening experience with a clarity and range that’s hard to beat.

They’re wireless and can connect to any Bluetooth enabled devices, with A1 apple processor chip that delivers 22 hours of Pure ANC music between charges, and up to 40 hours if the noise cancelling mode is off. You can control with your voice through Siri, take calls with on ear controls meaning you’re never fumbling in your pockets for your phone.

On-Ear Headphones: Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Headphones

These top-quality black leather headphones have an almost steampunk style to them, meaning even while you’re listening to great music, you’re looking great. Bluetooth 4.0 allows for easy wireless streaming of music, and one-touch pairing with devices makes it so that you’re not faffing with your devices before you can get rocking.

Two high-end 18-Ohm transducers that deliver impressive quality audio to give your tunes a feeling of satisfying clarity and definition, while those leather ear cups we mentioned are super comfortable so you can listen for as long as you want.


In-Ear Headphones: Bose Quiet Comfort 20i Noise Cancelling Headphones

These stylish noise-cancelling in-ear headphones are great for getting lost in the music while you make your daily commute but have an Aware Mode that you can switch on when you need to be in touch with what's around you; whether that's crossing a busy road or you're in an unfamiliar part of town. 


Bose's Triport technology, combined with ActiveEQ delivers depth and balance to bring your music to life, with subtle details, crisp highs and deep lows. In fact, we'd go so far as to say this is some of the best sound you can get from a set of in-ear headphones. There's also an in-line remote for changing tracks and adjusting volume, while a handy microphone lets you take calls or speak to Siri or Google search without having to pull out your phone.
