  • On-headphones controls
  • Wireless and wired playback

  • 25hr battery life

Sennheiser has over 70 years of experience in building quality electronics and the HD 4.40 Wireless is one of them. Unlike the Bose, these headphones don’t have noise-cancellation. Rather, they are noise-isolating, meaning that you would hear more in loud environments. Personally, we don’t a huge difference. In fact, these are one of the best noise-isolating headphones we’ve tried. Enough to be worthy of taking #2 in our list of the best wireless over-ear headphones in 2019. The battery lasts for about 22-25 hours, depending on how loud you’re listening to. I doubt you’ll listen on the loudest for long, though, because they’re pretty loud for their size and battery life. The NFC pairing makes it easy to connect to any device that supports it, and for those that don’t have any wireless connectivity — Sennheiser has got you covered with a 1.4 meters long cable.
