Whereas once they were the almost exclusively the province of music snobs, noise-cancelling headphones have become more mainstream. This is a good thing for both audio enthusiasts and rank-and-file commuters alike; noise-cancelling headphones can deliver fantastic listening quality, blotting out the rumbling noise of a train or a screaming baby on a plane.
Wires: who needs ’em? That infuriating dance of disentanglement you need to perform every time you pull out your favourite pair of earphones is a thing of the past. Wireless earbuds are here to lead us to a glorious cable-free future. Even if you might worry that the loss of a cable running directly from your music device to your ears would negatively impact audio quality, the good news is the tech has reached the point where it’s hardly noticeable – at least with the right pair.
Here, we’ve gathered up the five best wireless earbuds currently available, whether you’re on a budget, ready to splash some cash or just looking for something in between.

Dark Souls 3 is getting a game of the year edition in a matter of weeks. Because of that, you may want to hold off and pick up that edition. If, however, you’re not quite sold on buying the biggest and fanciest edition of the game, you can grab the standard edition on Xbox One or PS4 for a steal at $20.
Dark Souls 3 happened to be popular enough to make numerous game of the year lists at the end of 2016, so it should be no surprise to see the imminent release of the Game of the Year Edition, which collects the original Dark Souls 3 game as well as its two massive DLC packs. It’s available for £35 on Xbox One or PS4, as well as £32 for PC.
Best Buy’s current deal of the day for today is a little game you may have heard of before.
