The Bottom Line Despite some issues, Parrot can make a case for its Ziks being the Porsche of Bluetooth headphones. Despite a few question marks and a high price, the AE2w headphones are a very good-sounding Bluetooth pair that's lightweight and very comfortable to wear. While its design may not be for everyone, the Harman Kardon BT is one of the best-sounding Bluetooth headphones available. While they're no bargain, the Bose QuietComfort 15s currently offer the best sound and silencing capabilities in a pair of noise-canceling headphones. It's true that Sony's MDR-1R headphones come with a lofty price tag, but if you're searching for highly accurate-sounding headphones with style and substance, they deserve your attention.
