Whether you're working from home or spend a lot of time commuting, active noise-cancelling headphones help isolate yourself from unwanted noise. Although Bose and Sony get most of the attention, some other contenders are very relevant. Microsoft's first-generation Surface headphones are a great alternative, despite having been replaced with a more modern version. They traditionally sell for $250, but you can get them for just $111 on Woot today.
The Surface Headphones offer superior sound quality, active noise cancelation, and about 18 hours of battery life. They connect over Bluetooth and 3.5mm input, making them usable even if they're out of battery. They're controlled using touch input, and there's also an option to adjust the noise cancelation level, which avoids having to take the headset off if you need to talk to someone.
If you're ready to complete your purchase, use the link below to get your pair from Woot. Unfortunately, only the grey model is on sale, and there is a 10 unit per customer limit — but you'd hardly need more than that anyway.
The deal is back again on Woot with the exact same conditions as the ones mentioned above. It's valid until the end of the day, so make sure you get yours before the deal is over.
