The Next-Level Headphones That Will Change Your Commute

British speaker specialist Bowers & Wilkins has unleashed a cable-free classic

The downside of owning a lot of gadgets is the sheer volume of wires, chargers and cables in your life. It can make your desk start to resemble the back of Glastonbury's pyramid stage.

For anyone looking to reduce their personal cable mountain, then one area where 'wireless' tech is starting to thrive is headphones. And when British speaker specialists Bowers & Wilkins enter the wireless heaphone market, you know it's going to be worth taking seriously.

B&W have already launched wired headphones to great acclaim but these are the first wireless models.

They're dead easy to set-up and use, with volume and skip controls on the headset itself, and can be charged with a standard micro-USB cable which you will alteady own. Bluetooth pairing, not always the most reliable on some devices, feels instantaneous here.

Their soft leather pads make them super-comfy and combined with aluminium detailing, they are sleek but understated enough to wear on the bus without looking like a Premier League footballer. They also last an impressive 17 hours without charge, in case that bus gets stuck in some serious traffic.

Oh yes, and the sound. No surprises for guessing that the quality and depth on offer here, even just paired to your smartphone, will turn your commute into a different kind of journey altogether.

It's a big investment but not one you'll regret. A life of wire freedom awaits.
