Holiday Gift Guide: The Best Bluetooth Headphones for Travel [2018]

It’s that time of year: Halloween is fresh over. Time to throw out the candy corns (again) and, assuming you’re a lunatic, put up the holiday decorations.

It also means you need to start thinking about holiday gift shopping. If you’re looking to buy a gift for that favorite traveler in your life, there’s only one thing they’re going to be happy with this year: Airbnb gift cards.

OK, two things: I guarantee they’d also love a new pair of headphones — wireless headphones, in particular. Here are the best Bluetooth headphones for travel …

Best Bluetooth Headphones for Travel 2018

Sleep-friendly Bluetooth Headphones: SleepPhones Effortless

SleepPhones Wireless Headphones for Sleeping

SleepPhones Wireless — Best Headphones for Sleeping

Almost every night, I fall asleep listening to podcasts or an audiobook. Problem is: most earbuds just aren’t designed to be worn while you’re sleeping. Enter SleepPhones — the “world’s most comfortable headphones for sleeping.” Think of them as pajamas for your ears. The difference between SleepPhones and other travel-friendly headphones is the plush headband which, honestly, after a few minutes of wearing, you completely forget it’s even on your head.

While they come in three different varieties, I’m partial to the SleepPhones Effortless. They easily sync/pair with your smartphone, PC, or most any other Bluetooth-enabled device with a wireless range of up to 30 feet. The battery is designed to last 10 hours — more than enough for a decent night’s sleep or a moderate flight. Plus, for travelers on the go, the battery reaches a full charge in just three hours using the wireless, induction charging functionality. There’s also built-in play/pause and volume controls so you needn’t dig around in the dark for your smartphone in the middle of the night.

Marshall Major III Bluetooth Wireless On-Ear Headphones for Travel

There’s something about Marshall’s headphones that I’ve always loved. There’s a little vintage rockstar style in the look, they’re well-built and durable, and they sound great. What’s more: they don’t cost a fortune.

Among their latest offerings are the Marshall Major III Bluetooth. I’m hard-pressed to pick a single pair of cans to tag as “The Best Bluetooth Headphones for Travel,” but these are the ones I always travel with. I wear them at home and on the go.

The Major III headphones are a slight reboot of Marshall’s Mid Bluetooth and Major III (sans Bluetooth). They feature a multi-directional control knob to control play, pause, shuffle, and volume as well as directly power the headphones on and off. The 40mm dynamic drivers are enhanced for bass response, crystal clear highs, and smooth mids. And the best part: 30+ hours of wireless playtime on a single charge! That’s almost enough to get you from NYC to Sydney and back!
