Sound quality is one of the most important aspects of a good quality set of headphones. Below are some of my recommendations for crystal clear immersive sound weather it's the latest kicking tunes or escaping into an audiobook realm. 

 

If you are listening to music or an audiobook nothing can be more intrusive that everyday background noise. The top recommendation. The Sony WH-1000XM4 has the ground breaking noise cancelling technology on the market. I don't own a pair but I have listened to a pair and then bought the next cheapest Sony headset and them sent it back after listening to the these bad boys.
