Wireless headphones are great, and once you find a pair that works for you, you'll never want to go back to the wired life ever again. The biggest difference between wired and wireless headphones is that they need to be charged when their battery eventually dies, and to make your life a whole lot easier, you want to pick up a pair that charges via USB-C (the same connector that's probably on your phone). Here are all of the best ones we were able to find!

What would I choose?

Over the past year or two, a ton of headphone manufacturers have begun adding support for USB-C charging in their devices. There are a few outliers out there still choosing to use Micro-USB instead of USB-C, but that number is quickly declining.

If I had to choose one option from this list, it would definitely be the Sony WH-1000XM3. They feature class-leading ANC, excellent comfort, and long battery life. Their sound quality is absolutely bass boosted, but it can, fortunately, be tuned in their companion Sony Headphones app.

If you're looking for earbuds, the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are an equally great pick. They offer great sound quality, comfort, and long battery life. The Galaxy Buds+ charge over USB-C and have support for Qi wireless charging, which is fantastic given their price.
