Long before you started using headphones to listen to podcasts, Spotify playlists or just to keep sane during a long plane ride next to noisy passengers, headphones served a variety of purposes from helping telephone operators route calls in the 1880s to aiding military strategists coordinate air cover in World War II. Today, headphones come in all shapes, sizes and prices, but their primary purpose remains the same: Filter out the outside noises so the sound you’re listening to isn’t compromised.

Here are our favorite headsets to consider for your listening pleasure.
