Expert Reviews

If you don’t care much for metal accents, leather padding, and certain brands’ monikers, then the Edifier W860NB noise cancelling headphones may be your next audio investment. The ANC effectively quiets annoying noises like the hum of a subway, while aptX support means you benefit from high-quality streaming. Battery life is phenomenal, meaning you can take these around the world on just a charge or two.

  • Sound signature lacks high-frequency balance to match the bass boosting.
  • ANC affects audio playback.
  • On-ear controls can be problematic.

The sound quality of this Bluetooth headphone is very good with ANC on, but not so much with ANC off. Build quality is not great, and the touch controls are iffy, but battery life is longer than most.
