Best headphones of 2020
With the new year 2021 approaching, we are taking a moment to look back one last time at all the beauty that tech manufacturers have spoiled us with this year. We start with the results of the election of the best headphones of 2020. This shows that the Sony WH-1000XM4 came out on top with a large majority of no less than 75%.
These were the nominees
1. Sony WH-1000XM4 (380 euros) – by Claudia Rahanmetan
“Apparently Sony didn’t want to change the already very good WH-1000XM series and agree with them. The price, name and appearance have remained the same, but Sony does have some very useful and in-demand features on the WH-1000XM4 added.
The Sony WH-1000XM4 is just like the Sony WH-1000XM3 again a very good top-shelf headphone. If you want the best of the best then the Sony WH-1000XM4 should be on your wish list. You have to dig deep into your pockets. Would you rather spend a little less? Then you can also go for the XM3. “
2. Samsung Galaxy Buds Live (189 euro) – by Jeffrey van de Velde
“The sound in these earphones has been very surprising. It was already good with the Galaxy Buds Plus, but Samsung has clearly made improvements compared to the earphones from this spring. You notice that with bass tones that also sound extra good, and there the design of this Buds Live also plays a role.
Samsung makes bold choices with the Galaxy Buds Live, and I was really impressed by some of the features of the earbuds. The new design is a good find in my opinion, because it ensures that your ears fit even better and it also benefits the sound for the low tones. “
3. AKG Y600 Wireless (229 euros) – by Sebastien Marien
“AKG is one such manufacturer of headphones that focuses entirely on the overall quality and sound without wasting too many bells and whistles. That focus makes the Y600 Wireless an excellent and versatile headphone for on the road or for who likes to wear a lighter bluetooth phone at home.
The Y600 Wireless has many advantages. It sounds good, lets you discover details in music, and it is a pair of headphones that produce balanced tones. This ‘less is more strategy’ also applies to the design and operation of the AKG headphones. AKG uses light materials and yet manages to ensure that the headphones radiate a certain quality. In addition, the strong battery life and fast charging are plus points. “
