Recommendations for Bluetooth Cans (for a gift)

    This is going to be a gift for the sister, she is the typical average consumer that would just go in and pick up beats by Dre and be happy, if she had the money that is haha. I can't just get her beats by Dre though because she knows me, she'll know I would have put in 0 effort. The other trouble is I'm still rocking the HFI-780 from years ago and loving them so I have no clue what is out there or what is good.

    Only thing I can think of right now is something from Focal, they look nice which matters in this situation. The reason I'm thinking Bluetooth is cause all the kids seem to love that **** but also I'm certain that mostly she'll just run it from her iPhone or whatever the hell she has nowadays and if it can't run full size phones well enough she'll think I bought her trash and she should've just gotten beats by dre, which I can't buy her for reasons explained earlier lol.

    So suggestions are most welcome, I can look them up just drop me some brands and models even if you've never listened to them but heard/read that they are good. You will have great karma in return I promise! :)

    Bose Quiet Comfort II 35, they have that Bose signature sound if you like it, smooth and unoffending with plenty of detail without being overbearing, and the bluetooth is flawless.

    Hi @jiddu,

    I would suggest looking into the Sony 1000 XM2/3, either one is good for your needs.
    Good balanced sound with good bass response & excellent noise cancelling (if that is a preference) with good BT functionality.

    Hope you have a great day !

    I really like the AKG K845BT quite a lot. Maybe read about it and see what you think. $179 on amazon today. The B&W PX is another, more expensive option that could work.

    I have the B&W PX and my wife has the Bose QC35II, I like the PX better (after about a week of burn in), Since this is a gift, IMHO, the PX would look and feel more 'premium'. Noise cancelling wise, the ANC on the Bose is better though.

    For best sound get Sennheiser HD1
    For best ANC Bose QC35II or Sony 1000XM3

    And here two of the best sounding Bluetooth at the moment little bit over $400:

    Bowers & Wilkins P7 wireless
