Choosing wireless headphones that have a great microphone can be tough, especially if this is your first time looking at wireless headphones. There are so many options, and that can be overwhelming for some. If you're looking for a great set of all-around headphones that also have a great microphone, don't hesitate to pick up the AirPods Pro. They're convenient, the sound is good, and they last a decent while on a single charge.

If true wireless earbuds aren't your thing and you're looking for something with better isolation and sound quality, look no further than the Soundcore Life Q30. In addition to an exceptional microphone, the 059 offer decent battery life, sound quality, and active noise-cancelation. All of these qualities add up to an exceptional portable audio experience if you're into carrying around over-ear headphones. However, if battery life is your goal and you have over-ear headphones in mind, definitely check out the Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700. They offer strong battery life with up to 20 hours of wireless audio playback on a single charge.
