Top 5 Headphones of 2020: Don’t Make A Mistake!

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

I personally love over-ear headphones i use them when i'm sitting at my desk working and in the last year we've seen several new entries here are five of the most interesting of the group let's start with the jabra elite 45h headphones which have surprising value for their affordability they sound really good something we've come to expect from jabra and have a ton of features like bluetooth multi-point which is something we're not seeing in headphones two or three times the price

They are extremely lightweight easy to carry around and they feel robust even though they are very light so i wouldn't worry too much about breaking them the best part about these is they're very affordable i do need to point out something insanely good about these jabra 45hs the battery life they last for a crazy 45 hours between charges that's the best we've seen in quite a while and easily the best at their price point they're also really comfortable because

They rest on your ears very gently a side effect of that is though don't expect to take these out running with you or going to the gym they have a tendency to slip off your head but if you can deal with that these sound fantastic and are a great value next i want to talk about razer a company who you probably know more for making computers but also makes headphones these ones are called the razer opus and they are value rich with a ton of features that you usually have to pay a lot more for these are very comfortable they sound

Great and they have features like proximity sensors so they know when you take them off your head they'll automatically pause and then they'll resume playing when you put them back on additionally these are some of the only headsets you can buy that are thx audio certified so you know the audio sounds great that's the entire point of these additionally they have really good active noise cancellation better than we were expecting to find in a brand like razer these have about 25 hours of battery life which is

Average it's good it's not fantastic but it'll last more than a day the only other thing i feel like we need to mention about these is they don't use the most current bluetooth technology which is bluetooth 5. these use an outdated bluetooth 4.2 system and while that's probably going to be okay with you it does limit their range we can't have a headphone video without talking about the best headphones repeatedly year over year and that's the sony wh-1000 xm4s the xm3s were on our list of best

Headphones for something like three years and the xm4s improved upon what were already the best on the market sony adjusted the headband so that they're more comfortable and can be worn for longer without feeling fatigue from them they added more features to these such as the proximity sensor now they know when you pull them off and put them back on and will pause and play music accordingly they have excellent active noise cancellation they didn't really improve

That over the xm3s but that doesn't really matter because they were already fantastic not only are these the most feature-rich headphones we have ever tested they sound really good too there's really nothing bad i can say about these they're easily the best headphones of this style that you can find on the market what if all you care about is even equal balanced perfect audio most of these headsets will provide some kind of special sound signature that the company puts in but

What if you don't want any of that well then i have the perfect headphones for you these are the v-moda m200s these are what are called studio monitors their entire purpose is to provide sound to you exactly as the studio would have wanted you to hear it they don't have a ton of features they are simply headphones they don't have bluetooth you have to plug them directly into whatever source you want to listen to but if you want crystal clear surgically precise audio reproduction it's really hard to

Get that for less than 500 these come in at significantly less than that and sound fantastic additionally for you crazy audiophiles out there you know what balanced audio is these provide it they have two ports one is for the typical traditional audio signal the other one is balanced and that is very nice for those of you working in studios it also comes with both a balanced cable as well as a regular three and a half millimeter jack with a microphone on there if you want

To use these for phone calls one of the major selling points of the m200s is that you can customize them on each side there are these what on this one are just black plates but they come off and can be replaced with any number of plates provided by v-moda you can also do your own custom plates through them while they'll do etchings and colors there's a ton of options and you can make these look really cool they sound fantastic and are some of the best studio monitors you can get for the

Price what if all you care about is comfort like these just have to feel good and you have to feel good while wearing them that's where mont blanc a company known for making watches and fountain pens comes in yeah montblanc's not an audio company but they did make headphones and they partnered with audis's founder alex rosen to make them so they actually sound very good the thing is that's not where these things are best they look really nice and they feel even better if all you

Care about is making sure that your ears are bathed in luxury then yeah you want these on top of that they have really great controls a ton of features that work pretty well and they have active noise canceling the thing is the battery is not great they only last about 20 hours but you know 20 hours on an airplane have never felt better so these are our favorite headphones so far this year what are you wearing and what do you think of our choices let us know in the comments below
