Best iPhone Headphones of 2020

You want to get a new pair of headphones for your iPhone, but you’re not sure where to start. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer number of headphones available today. In this article, I’ll tell you about the best iPhone headphones in 2020!

What Makes A Pair Of Headphones Good For iPhones?

When shopping for a pair of iPhone headphones in 2020, there are a couple things to consider. Newer iPhone models don’t have a headphone jack, so you’ll want to make sure you have your Lightning to headphone jack dongle handy if you buy wired headphones.

Most modern headphones are equipped with Bluetooth technology, so you can wirelessly connect them to your iPhone. The headphones we’re recommending in this article all support Bluetooth, but many come with a cable that will connect them to a headphone jack.

AirPods Pro

If you read the customer reviews, you’ll want to buy a pair of AirPods Pro right now. Unlike their predecessor, the AirPods Pro support Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode.

Active Noise Cancellation will completely block out the world around you. You can fully immerse yourself in your music, podcast, or phone call.

If you only want to semi-avoid the outside world, try Transparency mode, which refines what you hear. It allows you to enjoy your music and still be able to hear important noises like your bus or train stop.

The AirPods Pro come in a charging case so you can charge them on-the-go. Unlike the original AirPods case, the new Pro case can be charged wirelessly as well as with a Lightning cable.
