THE BEST ANC HEAD­PHONES ARE…

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST -

AKG N60NC WIRE­LESS >

Wire­less lis­ten­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties? Check. Good noise-can­celling and au­dio per­for­mance? Check. The N60NC Wire­less is a stylish pair that will fit eas­ily into any­one’s life­style. It’s com­pact size means it trav­els well, and the well-rounded au­dio per­for­mance means the head­phone will al­low you to en­joy any genre of mu­sic with it. So add to that the im­pres­sive 30-hour bat­tery life (15 hours on wire­less) and the com­fort­able ear cush­ions, and you have a for­mula for hours of au­dio en­joy­ment. It doesn’t hurt that it’s the most af­ford­able head­phone here too.

< SONY WH-1000XM2

It wasn’t broke, but Sony made it bet­ter. The WH-1000XM2 gives you the same great per­for­mance, even bet­ter bat­tery life than be­fore and some added smarts, all at a slightly lower price point too. Again, this is one head­phone where you don’t suf­fer a huge drop in qual­ity lis­ten­ing via wire­less, thanks to the var­i­ous tech­nolo­gies built in, so it cer­tainly gives you free­dom to en­joy your mu­sic. The dif­fer­ence in noise-can­celling ca­pa­bil­i­ties be­tween this and the Bose QC35 is slight, but it’s def­i­nitely there. In terms of au­dio qual­ity though, the WH-1000XM2 was only se­ri­ously chal­lenged by the Bow­ers & Wilkins PX, which wasn’t as strong on the noise-can­cel­ing front. So, the WH-1000XM2 is eas­ily our win­ning pick again.
