I have  Sennheiser HD 598 and HD 2.30g. The HD 598's are connected to my desktop and I would most likely not replace these, had them for years and love them, but would test them out as potential. The 2.30g however would get replaced easily, getting worn out and wired only. Been looking at wireless headphones for a while but never dropped the money. Would be nice to finally get wireless for more portability with my phone, tablet and laptop. Would use it for music, podcasts, youtube videos and conference calls.

I have a pair of Skullcandy Sesh Evos that I use for pretty much everything (music, podcasts, movies, Netflix).


The Technics would be a nice to have to use for the much better sound quality especially when I start taking public transport again when I go back to the office.

For calls and meeting I generally use my Plantronics bluetooth headset - discrete and powerful, for games and movies I use the old Samsung wired in-ear buds - there's got to be a better solution than those, just haven't found one I liked (for some reason can't upload photo :-( )

 Sony WH-1000XM3 love them. Use them all the time.. hours and hours a day


commuting, video games, music, film/tv or sometimes just noise cancelling for peace. everything . 


Great sound, battery life, noise  cancelling, really sturdy/tough 




For the price, nothing comes close.

Working from work - Sennheiser HD350BT Bluetooth connection - for meetings, phone calls and music. These have quite tight-fitting ear cups, so it's almost like have noise cancellation as well. Bluetooth means I can pair them to my phone as well, and wander off to get a cup of tea without having to pause anything.






Working from home- Sennheiser HD400S for remote meetings and listening to music. Nice long cord - they basically look exactly the same as the 350BTs but are cord connection only.

My daily drive for movie and conference call is my old pixel buds that came with my pixel 3 (or pixel 2?, can’t remember).

Using it cause usb c never fails on me and it works on the usb c port on ipad Pro and MacBook.

An wireless headset with ANC would be a game changer for watching movie since that would allow me to sit in the couch and enjoy the movie from the tv instead!

Anyways thanks for arranging this giveaway, good luck to all fellow geeks!

Blue tooth hand-me-downs with mismatched buds, I use them so I can listen to news without imposing on family, and also while out walking, wires catch in face mask straps all the time - completely cordless earphones would be great.

Sennheiser HD 660S - plugged into my computer for YouTube/music


Bose QC35 II - mostly for travel, not that I have been lately...


Both of these are excellent for my needs, but would love an extra pair for the TV and hi-fi.

I have some older Bose headphones. I use them for music at home, and for travel overseas…

I'm rocking a set of Panasonic headphones. Use for both phone (with a USB C adapter) and for gaming (yay Sony and MS for not abandoning the 3.5mm jack on the controllers!). Would be great to have a mic on them though.

I use my headphones constantly, often hours every day to listen mostly to podcasts, but also music and audiobooks. My AirPods have been fantastic for comfort and battery life, but they're not amazing for music and they're a few years old now, so an upgrade would be nice!
