These over-ear Sonys claimed a top spot on our list of the best headphones overall for 2022. At over $300, even on sale, they're certainly not for those who are looking for a budget-friendly option. But if you want the very best of the best, and don't mind paying more to get it, these are the headphones for you.

Equipped with eight internal microphones and dual processors, the 1000XM5 boast some of the most effective noise-canceling capabilities on the market right now. They also have four beamforming microphones and a convenient speak-to-chat function that temporarily pauses your music once you start talking.

Thanks to Sony's LDAC technology, they also support high-resolution audio, even over Bluetooth, and upscale your compressed music files with AI assistance. They feature intuitive touch controls, and will even automatically pause your music when you take the headphones off. They can also pair with multiple devices at once, and boast an impressive battery life of up to 30 hours on a single charge.
