The best headphones for tucking away in a bag
BOSE QUIETCOMFORT 35 II, `29,363, bose.co.in
Now with added Google Assistant, Bose’s comfy over-ears offer balanced sound and impressive noise cancellation. The plastic design is admittedly bland, but we appreciate the lightweight feel it provides. An instant-mute feature would have made these perfect, but they’re still ace for travellers.

These on-ears deliver quality audio, nearly 30 hours playback and reliable Bluetooth connectivity. They’re smaller and fold up neater than the Bose, making them ideal for cramped bags, and can also be used wired. Noise cancellation isn’t as refined as with the Bose, but still effective at dimming the buzz of public spaces.
