The What Hi-Fi? Awards 2022 winners have been announced, and the headphones category has no fewer than 12 winning pairs deemed worthy of Best Buy gongs. They’re spread across both wired and wireless styles, in-ear and over-ear designs.
We’ve got a lot of familiar faces in the wired headphones sub-category, including repeat winners from Austrian Audio, Beyerdynamic, Grado and Shure, but there are a couple of significant new entries in wireless headphones. We’ve got a new entry from Sony at the budget end as well as a brand-new premium proposition – also from Sony! – at the top end too.
