Best Headphones for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR in 2020

The iPhone X and iPhone 11 don't feature a headphone jack, meaning the easiest way to listen to your favorite tunes, podcasts, and videos are through Bluetooth headphones. Whether you're looking for top-tier noise cancelling headphones or just a cheap pair to take with you on your daily commute, these are our favorites headphones to use with Apple's newest iPhones!

Why you can trust iMore Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

I'm a huge fan of the Taotronics TT-BH040 (opens in new tab) because they offer some decent noise-canceling for a good price; however, they aren't an audiophile's headphones; the sound quality is pretty average.

If workout-suited earbuds are more your style, the Bose SoundSport (opens in new tab) is a high-quality option, or the Aukey Latitude (opens in new tab) for those on a budget. With a ton of different headphones options, you should never have to travel with your iPhone without your favorite tunes in your ears again!
