What Bluetooth headphones must bring with them

The reason for choosing Bluetooth headphones is obvious: there is no annoying cable to connect to the playback device. Basically, the following factors play an important role in the purchase decision:

  • Sound quality
  • Noise suppression / noise cancelling
  • wearing comfort
  • Battery life, charging time and interchangeability
  • device compatibility

To give you an initial overview of what the market has to offer, we have compared 13 Bluetooth headphones from different price ranges for you, highlighting the most important features of each individual product. Afterwards, our guide will give you all kinds of interesting information about wireless headphones. Of course, we will also tell you what you need to consider when buying and answer the most frequently asked questions about modern devices. Finally, we also address the question of whether Íko Test or Stiftung Warentest have already published a Bluetooth headset test. We hope that this will make your purchase decision easier.


Due to the non-existent cable to the playback device, the Bluetooth headphones logically cannot be supplied with power from the playback device. The headphones must be equipped with a rechargeable battery, which increases their weight. The aim is to purchase the lightest possible Bluetooth headphones with a long battery life.

Typical battery life for over-ear or on-ear headphones is 20 to 30 hours. A battery life of seven hours is realistic for in-ear headphones.
