I'm tired of dealing with wires while I pivot from the keyboard to writing to sorting through some papers.

Right now I have some Klipsch earbuds and they sound great but the wires are a pain. Either constantly re situating the cable or (more commonly) ripping the earbuds out when they get snug on my keyboard or some other obstacle.

I'm willing to consider wireless earbuds but am not convinced they're the right direction to go. I do like that they could be sleeker and visually quieter. But, it seems sound quality wise that on-ear or (preferably) over-ear is the way to go.

My list right now is:
Bose QC35
Definitive Symphony 1
B&W P7 << Preferred
Senheiser Momentum
Sony MDR-1ABT
Sony MDR1000X (newer)
Bang and Olufsen Beoplay H7
Master & Dynamic MW60
Audio Technica ATH-DSR9BT


I'm leaning toward the B&Ws but they seem really chunky, and I don't want to be projecting 'fk off' when I have them on, which I'm afraid they will. The Sony MDR1000X seem interesting, especially with the ambient awareness feature. I normally wouldn't even consider Bose, but the QC35 seem to get good reviews for both features and sound quality, I just won't be installing their app. They are also fairly sleek aesthetically.

As far as sound I like something that is balanced. Not bass heavy, but not lacking either. I'm looking for the headphone that has the blend of performance, aesthetics, and features.

I don't know how much fidelity you want at work, but I have the Sennheisers ... both the RS120 and HDR120 (this is from memory). What I like about them is solid connection (no dropouts or severe lag) and 900MHz or whatever it is. Anyway, NOT Bluetooth. The range is waaaay beyond what I expected out of 2.4GHz wireless cans. You would have to check their current lineup and no doubt they offer a bunch of 2.4GHz cans as well, but I find the lower frequency really works in their favour. Maybe find a place that has a good return policy because no matter what you buy you may need to return for whatever reason. But if you are set on Bluetooth, then please disregard.

So It depends - if you will be using them JUST for personal listening - pretty much I suggest you hear them all if you can+add Sennheiser PCX550. IF You want to also use them as a universal headphone to also take phone calls from EIther your mobile or your PC, I suggest you look at Jabra evolve 75 since it pairs to 2 devices and has active noise cancelation. If you run out of battery, it becomes a USB headphone. Sound quality wise they will be less than most on the list, BUT for noisy office and practicality they will beat pretty much all of them with a range of 30 m .

I tend to flip between Listen only and practicality so I swap between Jabra and Sennheiser when I work at home. At work - Jabra all the way - practicality takes over sound quality.

For projecting :) they have a nice feature that allows you to say 'I am busy' with a red light ring

If you haven't got a pair, I would recommend the Focal Listen. I have the wired pair at my desk, they should great and people around you can't hear what you are listening to.
