    What's your budget?

    And do you prefer in-ear, on-ear or over-ear? Is noise cancelling a requirement? Do you prefer particular musical styles, or know what sort of sound profile you like (some people like to hear every vibration of a string, some just want a thumping bass)?

    If you can tell us what sort of thing you are looking for people will be able to make more relevant suggestions.

    (I should add that I don't have BT headphones, and there are very few type-C available and none that match my preferences, so I can't advise on these specific things through personal experience. But telling us what you care about will help somebody else provide some hopefully relevant suggestions).

    Hey Shashank, In today's generation everyone is so attached to their mobile phones. Whether you are travelling or you at your home, headphones have become the basic requirement for everyone to enjoy the music or to avoid someone and avoid unwanted talks/noise.

    And if you are a music lover, a good headphone is a must for you.

    There are a lot of good headphones available like:

    * Bose - best sound quality & best noise cancelling
    * Sony - good bass quality
    * Jabra - dual Bluetooth connectivity
    * Apple - they are best because they filter out external noise so that you enjoy the unmatchable sound quality

    Go with Bose if you are looking for the best sound quality, bass, and noise cancellation.

    But sometimes it happens that you are not that good with the budget but don't worry, cheap headphones are also worthy.

    Actually I've not tested the Bose 700s yet, but the Sony 1000MX has better noise cancelling than the Bose QC35: both more effective and more natural, less of the "dead" feeling when it's on but you aren't playing anything.

    Pure sound quality, it depends on your budget. There are loads of wired sets that will beat any of these comprehensively on sound quality, but that wasn't the OP's requirement (and it depends on the quality of your inputs as well).

    I've got an Altec Lansing T515 bluetooth speaker set, that also has a removable BT 'dongle' wiht a built in mic and a 3.5mm headphone socket. just add a pair of Koss Porta-Pro wired headphones and that'll blow most BT headsets out of the water.

    That's definitely not Beats. Don't know what that is. Beats is a circle with a lower-case "b" in it.

    That's on the case! Mikey @mikedt
    A twenty dollar case with 2 dollar headphones.

    I might clean them though and try them later.

    This is my first encounter with wireless earphones
