1. Bose Sound Comfort Quiet Comfort 20i
These buds are definitely on the expensive side, but their noise cancelling capabilities are fantastic and the sound quality has that Bose charm that splits many people - we’re big fans though. The Aware mode listens out for what’s around you, so you won’t run (literally) into any surprises and the StayHere tips are comfy, even when you’re wearing them for long periods of time.
