We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Most users find behind the neck headphones to be more convenient than traditional models, since there is no long and cumbersome wire to get caught on things. They are also not as easily lost as the individual Bluetooth earbuds you may have seen people walking around with. We've included a range of styles, at a variety of different prices to ensure you'll find the perfect pair here. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best behind the neck headphone on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 19, 2018:

Choosing headphones is a very personal thing. Sound quality is generally subjective, since no two people will hear and experience music in the exact same way. Also, users have different needs from them. Some may want a highly durable and water-resistant pair for working out, while another person may just need something very discreet to wear when walking around town. For these reasons, we did our best to include a nice variety of models so hopefully there should be at least pair one to suit everybody.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
