Which Sony headphones make it into the top 10?

Industry-leading noise cancellation (ANC, Active Noise Cancelling), good sound, clever technology and excellent features – Sony headphones regularly grab top spots in our list and receive a recommendation from us.

Which Sony headphones should I buy?

First you have to decide which design is right for you. Do you want over-ear headphones, are on-ear headphones enough for you or do you want completely wireless True Wireless in-ears? Our guide “What are the pros and cons of in-ear and over-ear headphones?” will hopefully help you decide which Sony headphones are right for you.

These are currently the best Sony headphones:

  • Over-ear: Sony WH-1000XM5 – these premium Bluetooth headphones offer you first-class noise cancelling as well as a convincing sound (review).
  • Over-ear: Sony WH-1000XM4 – the predecessor of the Sony WH-1000XM5 is at least as good, and some of them are on sale at greatly reduced prices (review)
  • In-ear: Sony WF-1000XM4 – the top model of the true-wireless class is a real functional giant and also delivers very good noise cancelling (review)
  • In-ear: Sony LinkBuds S – the smallest and lightest True Wireless In-Ears from Sony so far, which set the bar pretty high technically with this model (review)
