Our round-up of the best wireless headsets covers a variety of types. The more affordable wireless headsets allow you to listen to music or take calls without being plugged in but might be limited if you want an immersive gaming experience.

The other wireless headphones towards the end of this list are more specialist. We've got the best wireless headset for runners or gym-use, and one for gamers, too.

When choosing the best wireless headset for you, take a look at battery life, weight, and sound quality. If your budget is limited, you may have to compromise on one of these factors - but make sure you choose wisely.
