A pair that will alleviate your enjoyment of said product and help you tune out everything else around. Here are some wireless offerings for headphones, earbuds, and even some for the office.
B&W Px8 – Epic Sound
If we are talking about pristine sound quality and superb build it must go to the Px8. Stunning materials such as Nappa leather, and a cast aluminum design gives you luxury listening on another level with these. They support high-res audio tracks. They are on the pricey side but are worth it if you are looking for max bang for your buck. If they do deem to be a bit too expensive for you gander at the Px7 S2 which are a few hundred dollars cheaper.
