Available in a variety of colors, the Beats Studio3 are wireless closed-back headphones with a stylish and comfortable design. They are suitable for casual everyday use, with their closed-back ear cups and active noise-canceling technology allowing for better noise isolation. You can use them for travel and commuting, with their foldable design making them more portable.

Capable of running up to 22 hours with both Bluetooth and active noise cancellation, the Beats Studio3 are decent-sounding headphones with good on-cup controls. They charge fast – 10 minutes of charge time provides three hours of playback – and are quite stable for over-ear headphones. Their good stability makes them decent enough for jogging, but they are not recommended for intense workouts with a lot of head movement.

If you prefer to use wireless over-ear headphones for a home entertainment setup, check out the Sennheiser RS 175.

A transmitter that also serves as a dock and charging station for the headphones is included in the box.

Featuring simple but responsive on-cup controls, the Sennheiser RS 175 supports both analog and digital inputs. While their bulky and unwieldy design might suggest otherwise, they are comfortable to use for long stretches, and they can run up to 18 hours per charge with their two rechargeable AAA batteries.

Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum

Like the Beats Studio3, the JBL Live 500BT are stable enough for jogging, but they lack active noise-canceling technology for better noise isolation.
