THE 6 BEST COMMUTER HEADPHONES
TREAT YOUR EARS IN STYLE AND ESCAPE NOISE POLLUTION
With Podcasts booming (again) over the past year (thanks to Serial), we’re turning our focus to on-ear headphones. There’s nothing worse than sitting on the Tube in London on your morning commute to work and not being able to hear your episode due to the tracks and engine noise. More and more, we're seeing that people are turning their backs on their free white iPhone earphones in pursuit of something much, much, MUCH better - so they can truly escape the everyday noise pollution that we face. Over-ear headphones are much better when it comes to comfort, style, and noise-cancellation.
