The Best New Headphones for Travelers
The latest headphones go beyond noise-cancelling with high-spec, intuitive functions made for travelers.
The ultralight Plantronics BackBeat Sense will outlast the world’s longest nonstop flight, delivering up to 18 hours of continuous use on a single charge. Among the secrets to its long battery life: sensors that automatically pause your music when you take the headphones off. Buy them for $129.
If you’re wearing Muzik Convertible headphones, chances are you’ll never need to reach for your phone. Buttons on the right-hand cup allow you to switch tracks, adjust volume, activate speed dial, or answer an incoming call. Buy them for $175.
Standard Bluetooth technology limits the amount of data that can be transmitted, resulting in lower-quality sound. But Sony’s new Hear On headset can transfer three times as much data, delivering a fuller, more rounded listening experience. Buy them for $200.
