Best Noise Canceling Headphones

While regular headphones are great for listening to music, most don’t cancel out annoying background noises like idle chatter, traffic sounds, or the noise of the TV. The solution to this problem is noise canceling headphones, which you can wear over your ears and not be annoyed by ambient sounds.

Noise canceling headphones are great when traveling or staying at home. You can take a pair to the gym as well. Generally speaking, if you want to listen to music in a public space without other noises distracting you, then noise-canceling headphones will be the best gadget you have.

Some of these headphones are great for taking hands-free calls as well. Most offer great perks like comfort for wearing long. Without further ado, here is a list of the best noise canceling headphones:
