So ny MDR -1000X £360, sony.co.uk

Sony’s top-end wire­less cans are the most ex­pen­sive on test, but they’re also the smartest. They cus­tomise noise-can­celling to suit your wear­ing habits, while two Am­bi­ent Sound set­tings let in voices or back­ground noise. It all works bril­liantly. The syn­thetic leather styling is dull but they’re su­per comfy and easy to use thanks to the slick ges­ture con­trol pad. Sony’s high-res 40mm driv­ers de­liver won­der­fully rich and re­fined sound with no bright edges, pick­ing out rarely no­ticed nu­ances and sup­ply­ing deep, tightly con­trolled bass. The 20-hour bat­tery life is also im­pres­sive.
