FAQS

What is a good battery life for headphones?

Thirty hours and up is our baseline. That should hopefully get you through most of the work week with just one charge in-between. Some of the options in this list claim incredibly high battery life, but it’s hard to test these claims accurately.

One brand could have their device at 30% of volume, and the other at 60%. So, be careful of sale-speak when there is no standardization. 

Should I get Bluetooth earphones instead?

Earphones are always tempting as they are portable and lightweight. With their small size comes less space for a battery and therefore a much shorter runtime. If it’s a long-lasting battery you want, it’s best to stick to headphones.

Is Noise Cancellation Important for Bluetooth?

The main reason people want this feature is if they plan on wearing their headphones in public or a noisy office environment. It’s not the end all be all of a decision if those factors don’t apply to you.

If you do plan on wearing these a lot in public then it should definitely be something you look at closer. 

Conclusion

Bluetooth headphones can give you the freedom of not having a wire but often that has come at the price of battery life.
