13 Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones On The Market For 2017
Whether it’s people on the train in the morning that won’t shut up, your noisy neighbor, or the construction going on outside your window, there’s nothing on this planet worse than your music or podcast being interfered with by outside noise. The best solution? Noise-cancelling headphones.
We’ve done our due diligence to help you make the best decision possible when buying a pair of noise-cancelling headphones. Shopping for noise cancelling headphones can get overwhelming real quick, so we put together this list of the 13 best noise-cancelling headphones on the market right now for 2017.
Some things to keep in mind when shopping for headphones: know what kind of earphone you want before you start looking (in-ear, over-ear, etc.), try them on and try them out if you can, check up on battery life and the warranty before you buy, don’t expect miracles from them (no headphone is gonna block out the entire cheer-leading team’s practice) and remember, a premium product will come at a premium price.
13. CB3 Hush
Part of making this list is considering purchase value, as in bang-for-buck when buying noise cancelling headphones. When it comes to value, CB3s Hush headphones are near the top. At just $89.99, these headphones won’t break the bank but still deliver quality ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) performance. In addition to ANC capabilities, the Hush headphones are wireless via bluetooth and have a microphone for phone calls.
12. Beats Studio3 Wireless
I don’t need to tell you a ton about Beats by Dre because you’ve seen them, heard of them, and probably know someone who uses them. Plus, you likely have an opinion about the Beats brand that, regardless of what you read on the internet, won’t be changed. Having said all of that, Beats Studio3 Wireless are the high end headphones product from Beats by Dre. While this list started with some of the best value in noise cancelling headphones, Beats fall on the other end of that spectrum. That doesn’t mean these headphones aren’t a great product; features like the Apple W1 chip for super easy bluetooth connectivity, 22-hours of battery life, and pure ANC technology are all awesome. However, buying Beats headphones is like buying Nike socks. They looks great, people notice them, they do a great job but you’re paying for a name-brand logo when lower-priced products are comparable in quality or performance.
