My friend needs something nc bluetooth and long lasting with great sound. I haven't tested many headphones so would love to hear your opinion. I want her to get the best she can for her money since and I'm lost for options. Thanks for any help!

Earbud-style or standard over the ear, etc.? Not sure if any of the models have noise-cancelling but I've had good experience with SoundCore (owned by Anker) wireless earbuds. EDIT: some of them do.

Ex, these are on sale right now (at least in the US), have noise-cancelling...they're like 2 or 3 models above the ones that I have.

and she can have them in purple.

Customer service was good too.  Had an issue where the charging case was losing charge...they sent me a new, sealed set.  Didn't ask for the old ones back.

Check out Harman Kardon. I have a nice headset (mic also) with great sound quality that seems to have good noise cancelling.

Due to the above, I've likely revised posts <30 min old, and do not think as you do.

Ok, how/where would she use them? Not sure what the range of BT headsets provide, but I'm sure there's variants of both closed and open back designs. Maybe one more than the other with noise-cancelling.  Not sure without looking it up...all my over-ear phones are wired aside from one old Sennheiser set that is using its own RF base...

Casual. Anywhere to outside to listening. Anywhere and everywhere

Earpod pros sound canceling is literally unreal. I can walk through LAX and hear nothing except my music (which I have at like 20%), get on my flight, and barely hear anything at all besides my music, I can feel the engines through my feet more then I can hear them...

 

They are in ears, but they are SHOCKINGLY good at noise cancelation to the point where it actually may be black magic. I can understand them being amazing at creating inverse waves, but I honestly can't figure out how they seal as well as they do to block out sound and keep that inverse wave inside your ear hole.

Hmm. I ended up getting memory foam ear tips for them and that helped me a bunch. But fair enough, they are not for everyone unfortunately.

If ANC is top priority then a refurbished Sony XM4.

I don't feel that they have the best sound quality, but it's adequate and they do a pretty good job of blocking out office noise and the like.
