New Headphone Brands That Are Making An Entry Into The Market This Year

New Headphone Brands Entering the Market

With all the headphone options out there, it can be hard to buy smartphone headphones that you really like. Some are too expensive, some are bad quality, and others just don't work all that well. Here is guide to the best headphones making their debuts this year. With all different price points and quality levels, this will help you find a pair you love.


Sony WH-1000XM2 – Middle of the road

These headphones are good for their noise cancelling properties. They are wireless, and have 30 hours of battery life. Many people also like these headphones because they have great audio quality, which is what most people are looking for.  There are also a few fancy tricks hidden away in this pair of headphones. They only let in mid-high frequency noise, like loud announcements. You can also choose to let in all outside noise without taking them off. You can buy these headphones online, through retailers like Amazon. There are a few negatives however: The hinges on them are weak and tend to break easily. They are also a little pricey, at just under $300.

Jabra (News - Alert) Move Wireless - Affordability plus quality

The next pair is a slightly more affordable pair of headphones. The Jabra Move Wireless sells for around $60. These headphones have a great design, and are lightweight, making them easy to carry around hanging from your neck, in a purse, or just stashed in a coat pocket. The bluetooth factor makes these headphones even easier to carry around, and the excellent performance makes them a steal. You can also buy these headphones online. The negative to this pair is the sound leakage. If you're worried about distracting other people with your music or anything else you use your headphones for, you may want to consider a different pair.

Bowers and Wilkins PX Wireless - Pricey

The priciest pair of headphones on this list is the Bowers and Wilkins PX Wireless. At $392, this pair may break the bank for some, but don't that deter you from at least trying them out. They have amazing noise cancellation, making them great for crowded areas, or just to be able to listen to music in peace. The 22-hour battery life makes this a great unit for traveling. They also feature 30+ foot range, and closed acoustic design. However, with all of these pluses, there's also a minus: sound quality. These headphones have not been rated highly for the quality of sound they emit.

The previous headphones all great, but if you're still looking for other options, you check out one of these pairs below:

  • Beats X earbuds ($80)
  • Sony WF-SP700N ($180)
  • iSport Victory ($150)

Buying smartphone headphones can be a little overwhelming with all of the different prices, styles, and models. Hopefully, this guide helps you find a pair that fits your budget, needs and personal preferences.
