We are a nation that have become permanently attached to our phones. Scrolling through Instagram, swiping on Tinder and listening to the much needed escapism of music.
Barely surviving our dreary morning commutes in this ever changing Great British Weather, we constantly turn to the comfort of our handheld technology for relief.
But here at The London Economic we are more concerned about your eardrums than your dating disasters and therefore have decided to cover those earbuds with some much needed love.
We’ve scoured the market and have shared our top picks of the best headphones currently available.
And if you need a soundtrack to bop along to, we’ve got that covered too.
