There's plenty of upstart audio companies creating quality headphones, earbuds, and speakers for your listening pleasure, but for many shoppers, Bose still reigns supreme. Although its high-end products often feature high-end prices, you can scoop up some excellent gear from Bose, including its best ANC-equipped headphones, on Amazon today as part of Prime Day for as much as $150 off the usual prices.
The outside world can be a loud place, full of distractions and noise. If you're trying to get work done, the last thing you need is your neighbors in the apartment above you practicing clogging lessons. Thankfully, noise-canceling headphones make it easy to tune out your surroundings. Sony makes some of the best ANC headphones and earbuds you can get your hands on, and while the WH-1000XM3s aren't the newest kids on the block, today's deal is unbeatable for the value.
Razer released its first pair of ANC-equipped headphones last year, and to our surprise, they were actually quite the value. At $200, its Opus headset managed to undercut the competition, delivering excellent sound quality and noise cancellation without breaking the bank. Razer's looking to pull away from the pack for the second year in a row, cutting the price of its brand-new set of headphones in half.
Fans of true wireless earbuds have been in a tizzy lately, watching the leaks of the upcoming flagship noise-canceling buds from Sony. From what we've seen so far, they seem to be the design to beat, improving on the previous well-received model in pretty much every way. The latest leak shows the price of the buds in Euro, and assuming that it's accurate, it's ... a lot.
Thanks to an exorbitantly high price tag, Microsoft's first pair of headphones failed to make much of a splash when they hit the market in 2018. The company made up for its mistakes with a cheaper second-gen model last year, but these days, you can find some great deals on the original set. If you've been waiting patiently for an affordable over-ear headset, your time has come. Microsoft's ANC-equipped headphones are down to just $80 on Woot.
It can be tough to shop for headphones these days. With so many great options around, making sure you pick the right ones can seem impossible. Thankfully, if ANC is a must-have feature, your decision just got a lot easier. Sony's WH-1000XM4 are the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy today, and eBay has them marked down to $260 — a new low for non-refurbished units.
Android 12 news is coming fast and furious at the moment, but one of the smallest changes introduced in Beta 1 might make life a little easier for fans of Bluetooth headphones. The beta introduced support for Bluetooth LE Audio, a low-energy, high-efficiency mode for headphones and other audio devices. The API support is live now: if your headphones support LE Audio, they should use it automatically when connecting.
Wyze has made a name for itself by selling dirt-cheap stuff that works surprisingly well, notably security cameras, lightbulbs, and other smarthome gadgets. It's recently expanded into more mobile-adjacent tech, including a full-sized set of noise-canceling headphones. The next logical step for the company is in the exploding segment of true wireless earbuds, and so here we are: the Wyze Buds Pro.
Microsoft's first-generation Surface Headphones launched at an ambitious $350. Partially due to that price, they didn't really catch on (Microsoft seemingly acknowledged this blunder by introducing the second generation at an MSRP $100 lower). They're still good headphones, though — and today, you can nab a pair for just $82 from Woot.
It's no secret that Sony makes some of the best ANC-equipped wireless headphones you can buy today. The WH-1000XM4s, while a relatively minor upgrade over the XM3s, feature fantastic sound quality, long-lasting battery life, and best-in-class noise-canceling. However, in Sony's eyes, they're just not good enough. The colors currently available for the XM4s — black, beige, and blue — are too loud and too distracting to really shut out the world. If what you need is the quietest color around, these new limited-edition headphones have you covered.
