Spending massive amounts of money on headphones isn’t the best way to have more money, therefore, buying ones that will last a long time and give you the best performance for that money is a smart move.
At 10ways normally if something is at it’s lowest ever price & it’s a good product we post it, regardless of what it is, however, price shouldn’t always be the deciding factor so based on our years of experience of checking products are legitimately good and that the reviews are genuine etc we’ve put together the list of headphones that we use and recommend. No company listed has paid to be on this list & we paid for the 4 recommended items ourselves.

The best in-ear
#1 Anker Life P2– Great value for money for the specs and in black
Followed by: Apple AirPod Pros – we actually use these but they’re not cheap so it’s hard to recommend over the Anker, we just wish they were black like the Anker, if you have an iPhone or Mac you will be hard-pressed to beat these for versatility.
Other recommended: RHA MA750i, SoundMAGIC E10, Sennheiser CX 300 II, Betron DC950, JVC HAFX1X Xtreme Xplosives, Betron B750s
The best noise-cancelling
#1 Sony WH-1000XM3 – we use these when travelling or when relaxing at home, the sound quality is next level and the noise reduction is essential for aeroplanes.
Followed by: Bose 700 (these two often compete against each other so go for whichever is the cheapest at the time, both excellent)
Other recommended: Anker Soundcore
The best studio/monitor headphones
#1 Audio-Technica ATH-M50X
Followed by: Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO
Other recommended: Sony MDR-V55 DJ or Sennheiser HD 599
The best sport headphones
These should be waterproof and/or the buds not easily lost
#1 Anker Magnetic Waterproof earphones
Other recommended: Mpow Waterproof running3 comments
