Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones review: Cancelling noise and high price tags

Wireless headphones have been around for years, but they've taken on increased importance now that phone manufacturers are leaving out the 3.5mm jack. Companies like Sony and Bose have been cranking out great options, but most of those products cost $200 or $300. That money can get you a lot of premium features like active noise cancellation and high fidelity sound — but do you need to spend that much? The Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones cost just $70 and offer some premium features like ANC and multi-device pairing. However, the construction is lower quality, there are no customization options, and the ANC is merely okay — they don't excel in any one area.

Microsoft Surface Headphones 2 review: Better headphones, better price

Looking to capitalize on the burgeoning noise-canceling Bluetooth headphone market, Microsoft launched its first Surface Headphones in late 2018. They had a lot going for them: a unique aesthetic, good sound quality, and handy dials to adjust volume and ANC. They struggled to get their footing in an increasingly crowded market, though, due in no small part to their $350 price tag. The second generation is available now, and it's largely unchanged from the first — but key under-the-hood changes and a significantly lower price make them a much more appealing package than their predecessor.

Razer Opus review: $200 ANC headphones have no business being this good

Razer sells flashy, designer gaming laptops and accessories, and it's not typically an outfit you'd associate with value — the fanciest version of its Blade laptop costs $4,300, and its new Kishi mobile gamepad is 80 bucks. Its Opus headphones break with a number of Razer conventions, though: not only do they sport an uncharacteristically tame aesthetic that doesn't scream gaming, they're also priced extremely competitively at $200.

Work from home in peace with the Microsoft Surface ANC headphones for just $200 ($50 off)

Bose and Sony headphones get most of the attention when it comes to active noise cancelation. Still, there are other contenders worth considering, especially if price is part of your buying criteria. The Surface headphones are a good alternative, but their MSRP was too similar to the leaders in the category for them to compete fiercely. Nevertheless, Microsoft's product is now down to just $200, which is about $50 off compared to the price it's been selling for lately. This makes it particularly relevant, especially if you're stranded at home, given the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Hurry: Get a pair of Bose 700 noise-canceling headphones for just $300 ($100 off) (Update: Sold out)

Before Sony's monstrously popular WH-1000XM3, Bose was the go-to for active noise-canceling headphones with its QuietComfort line.

But if you act fast, you can cop a pair for a full $100 off.
