Bose QuietComfort 25 (Save £160)
They might be a couple of years old, but the Bose Quiet Comfort 25's are still some of the best acoustic noise cancelling headphones on the market. Why? Because they show a bit of backbone, delivering a sound that's confidently precise, agile and detailed. They have the analytical edge to unpick each section of a song without compromising its whole, and the organisation and space to avoid ever being tongue-tied. Long story short: we're impressed.

As for the sound, BoseTriPort technology delivers crisp highs and natural sounding lows, helping to imbue your favourite workout playlist with some extra oomph.

At £19.99 they were already super affordable, but now you can get them for just over a fiver. They aren't going to rock your world in terms of audio, but they deliver surprisingly good sound for the price, with powerful bass capabilities helping these little fellas punch well above their weight.
Was £19.99 | £7.99 (-60%)
Nuraphone (Save £70)
Finally a pair of cans that actually listen to your ears! You can set up profiles based on your own hearing for a totally hi-fi experience.
They have weird pokey things that go in your ears but you get used to that. At Stuff we gave them a whopping 5 stars when we reviewed them earlier this year for their full-bodied sound, effective noise-cancelling and adjustable bass-whump, making them a pair of top performing music makers.
