    How we test

    Noise-cancelling models

    Overall score includes:

    Sound (50%)
    Comfort (30%)
    Noise-cancelling (10%)
    Durability (10%)

    Other scores don’t count towards the overall score.

    Noise-cancelling is only assessed if active noise-cancelling is available.

    Non-noise-cancelling models

    Overall score includes:
    Sound (60%)
    Comfort (30%)
    Durability (10%)

    Other scores don’t count towards the overall score.

    For our test, we get 5 expert testers to wear each pair of headphones for an extended period while listening to a range of content from various audio sources. Each set’s sound quality was also tested using a reference ear, a device with an acoustic input impedance resembling that of an average human ear. This was also done for noise-cancelling if applicable. The scores from the testers and reference ear are then averaged into the final sound quality score.

    The same 5 testers allocate the comfort score. Finding the headphone type that’s most comfortable for you can take time, because everyone’s ears are different. Earbuds often come with different-sized rubber nibs to help fit into your ear. Over-ear headphones tend to be bigger and heavier, so you may need to adjust the headband to get the fit right.

    Price is based on a March 2019 price survey.
