Best wireless Bluetooth headphones of 2015

Updated

Portable Bluetooth headphones represent the next evolution in headphone technology. If you have a compatible smartphone with Bluetooth, the obvious benefit is that you can get rid of the wires snaking from your backpack, purse, or pocket. Many of the models collected here also include track navigation features on the ear cup as well as a built in microphone for taking calls hands-free. However, keep in mind that Bluetooth sound quality still isn't up to wired standards, so you'll have to sacrifice fidelity for the convenience.
