Although these headphones have a good frequency response, they are wired and will require a USB C to 3.5mm Audio Adapter (for Android Devices) or an Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter (for Apple Devices).

Sennheiser makes good headphones, and these have a slightly better frequency response than the JBL TUNE 500, but these are wired headphones, so you will need an adapter either for your Android device (USB C to 3.5mm Audio Adapter) or for your Apple device (Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter).

Choose the Anker Soundcore Life Q20‘s below if you want wireless and don’t want to spend more than $60.

While I haven’t tried these headphones, I am very satisfied with my Anker Soundcore Life Q30 headphones, which have a 40-hour playtime.

Sennheiser is a good brand, but these are wired headphones and would require a USB C to 3.5mm Audio Adapter (For Android Devices) or Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter (For Apple devices).

They do appear to be comfortable.

These headphones sound great with binaural beats, Dr Joe Dispenza meditations, breathwork meditations, and electronic music. They have a long battery life. Anker support is great.

Active Noise Canceling may not be as powerful as more expensive options like WYZE, Sony WH1000XM3 or Bose QuietComfort 45, but it’s still an effective means of cutting down on fans, deep bass, and talking.

I own the Soundcore by Anker Life Q30 headphones and find them to be very comfortable. However, sometimes the audio cuts out on my Google Pixel 6 / Google Pixel 6 Pro.

They work well with my desktop using a USB Bluetooth 5.0 adapter and only stop working when I walk too far from the receiver.

When you turn them on there is a voice that tells you how long the battery will last.

I think these are the most comfortable headphones I have ever owned, and I’m fascinated by the WYZE headphones listed below.

Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones
$81.98
  • Wireless
  • Over The Ear (with Fatigue-Free Fit)
  • Active Noise Cancellation (40dB)
  • 20-Hour Battery Life (10-minute quick charge to 4-hour)
  • Frequency Response: Up to 38kHz

Since these have a 20-hour battery life, as opposed to the 40/60-hour battery life of the Soundcore by Anker Life Q30, I am hesitant to try them.

But, maybe plugging them in every day or two is worth it for the Fatigue-Free Fit (20mm foam and elongated earpads)? As it has quick charging, I suppose I could put down my tunes for 10 minutes for 4 hours more of battery life, eh?

Wyze also offers 40 dB Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Earbuds and 30 dB Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Earbuds for those wanting IPX5 Sweat Resistance with 4 Voice-Isolating Mics.

These are for people who prefer on-ear headphones. My preference would be over-ear noise-cancelling headphones.

These might be a good alternative if my Soundcore by Anker Life Q30‘s break. I would appreciate the built-in sensor that senses when you remove the Life Q35 from your ears and automatically stops my music.

The sound quality was really good, but I wasn’t able to wear them for more than an hour without feeling uncomfortable. The ear pads hurt my ears.

I’d like to try these or the Bose Quiet Comfort 45. After wearing these for a moment, they seemed more comfortable than the $160 Status Flagship ANC Headphones above in the Greater Than 100 category.

If you want to save $50-150, check out the Sony WH1000XM3 on eBay.

Although I would like to try these, the price puts me off. Sometimes I find these on eBay for a decent price and in new packaging. eBay offers the Bose QuietComfort 45 for a lower price than its retail price.

As of now, I haven’t tried out the AirPods Max, but I have heard mostly good things about them. 🙂

You might want to check eBay for pricing on these Apple AirPods Max if you are more of an Apple user. However, watch out for cheap knockoffs unless you are willing to take that risk. You can also use PayPal to protect yourself from fraud.

Thank you for checking out the best headphones for Meditation and Breathwork!
