Wear them to kill noise. Few could burn a hole in your wallet sure. But as music listening devices, each of these is singularly outstanding.
1. Sennheiser PXC 350
Sennheiser PXC 350 is not just noise cancelling, it is a noise killing headphone. Unlike most other headphones that just block sound mechanically, these headphones actually recognize noises in your environment and create signals to drown them out.
In addition, the ability to play music at 8 Hz to 28 kHz, frequency levels that a human cannot actually hear, enhances the sound quality of the music taking your listening experience to a different level. It’s truly one of the best noise cancelling headphones available.
2. JVC HA-NC250
The physical design of this headphone makes it possible to block 85% of background noise around you. Managing to do that while being a lightweight headphone is a great feat! High quality sound is reproduced with its wide range of frequency response from 8 Hz to 24 kHz and 40 mm neodymium drivers. With just one AAA battery you can listen to 50 hours of complete noise-free music.
Light weight earpieces that have pads with memory foam and fit to the shape of your ear make these headphones highly comfortable.
3. Bose QuietComfort 15
The Bose Quiet Comfort 15 is an acoustic noise cancelling headphone that is targeted at travelers who listen to music while they are on the go. Comfortable design and superior sound quality the main selling points of these headphones. You will notice how well designed the ear cups are as soon as you put these on; they cancel noise even before the noise cancellation feature is enabled. However, be aware that the music dies with the battery.
Did we tell you that these headphones are foldable and fit nicely into a travel case that is just slightly bigger than a CD wallet?
4. Sony MDR-NC500D
These headphones can reduce up to 99% of all ambient noise which means you will almost never have to turn the volume up too high just to counter noise. Different modes for noise cancellation available are Airplane, Bus, and Office. You could select one of those or let it decide for you via auto mode. The most unique feature of this headphone is a built-in microphone which lets you hear noise, in case you have to.
This way you won’t have to take the headphones off each time you need to converse with someone. Though, like the Bose, these headphones won’t work without battery.
5. Denon AH-NC732
With the widest range of frequency (5 Hz to 28 kHz) of all headphones listed above, this one clearly has an advantage. It works on both modes too — noise cancelling and normal. It requires just one AAA battery to function in noise cancelling mode which will give you 40 hours of listening pleasure. It also reduces 99% of all external noise.
You get two detachable chords of different lengths with the package. The ear cups are made from urethane and high quality leather; this ensures comfort while still retaining a compact design.
