Unlike your eyes that you can just wire shut when you don’t want to see something, or your nose that you can simply pinch when you get a whiff of a funky stench, you need special equipment for your ears if you refuse to listen to something unpleasant — say, a wailing toddler or the Baby Shark song.
You could opt for earplugs that feel like somebody stuck their finger up your ear, or you could choose the better, more comfortable option: noise-cancelling headphones.
Noise-cancelling headphones have microphones situated close to where sound enters your ear and picks up frequencies of your surroundings to produce a contrasting sound that renders outside noise practically nonexistent. It’s impressive technology, really, which is why top-performing noise-cancelling headphones typically cost a pretty penny.
But not today. We’re putting the spotlight on two top-of-the-line noise-cancelling headphones that won’t make your pockets cry.
A lot of audiophiles detest noise-cancelling headphones because they tend to hamper sound quality, but the Cowin E7 Pros deliver real-time audio calibration to preserve clarity. They even boast proprietary 45mm large-aperture drivers for deep, accurate bass response. With professional protein earpads and swiveling earcups, you’ll feel comfortable wearing these during their impressive 30-hour battery life. And should they run out of juice, you won’t even have to take them off. They support charging while listening so you can continue bopping to the new Ariana Grande album all day long. Normally $89.99, get a pair on sale for $78.99.
Remember getting goosebumps the first time you heard “Bohemian Rhapsody” because it’s just too good? Well, these headphones could very well send chills down your spine with every song thanks to their top-grade, high-performance neodymium-backed 40mm speakers and Sound2.0™ technology. True to their namesake, the TREBLAB Z2s deliver twice the sound, twice the battery life (35 hours, baby!), and twice the convenience of many of their competitors. Typically priced at $259.99, enjoy a 69% discount and grab them on sale for $78.99.
