Even though Bose and Sony lead the noise-canceling headphone market, there are a bunch of great options out there you can consider. One of them is Jabra's Elite 85h bluetooth headset, which features active noise cancelation, USB-C connectivity, and a 3.5mm port. The device was released back in January for $300, but is now available for just $237 for Prime Day. Read More
The Bose QuietComfort 25 wired headphone might be a little over four years old, but they still hold up remarkably well as a high-quality acoustic noise canceling headset at a great value. During the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales the headphones are even more affordable, dropping from a regular price of roughly $200 to $109.99 on Amazon. Read More
We're well into deals season, and we've seen plenty of good ones, but this one's up there with the best: Sony's XB950N1 Bluetooth headphones are more than half off today for Amazon's Gold Box daily deals. Normally $249.99, you can grab a pair for just $113 right now. Read More
In 2016, we called the JBL Everest Elite 700s' $300 MSRP "a decent price point." Then, in February of this year, refurbished models were going for $120 on Woot. That was a good deal. Now they're $69.99 on Woot, which is a heck of a deal. Read More
Taking a step away from fitness-oriented audio, I have recently spent some time with Phiaton's BT 150 NC noise canceling earphones. This is aimed at traveling professionals who want to have great noise canceling without breaking the bank. Phiaton manages that with the $150 BT 150 NC, all while providing very good sound quality and comfort. Read More
Sony is pulling a Lenovorola with its different Bluetooth headphones. The company confused us recently by announcing the WH-1000XM2 followed by the h.ear on 2 Wireless NC, but you don't need to worry about either of these, because this deal is on the slightly older MDR1000X. They've now dipped to $248 on Amazon, $50 less than the last time we told you about them.
If new headphones make the older generation cheaper, then we won't complain, because the MDR1000X are a really good pair. They're over-ear headphones with active noise cancelation, 20 hours of battery life, hi-res audio both in Bluetooth (LDAC) and wired modes, an ambient mode to hear your surroundings without interrupting your music or removing your headphones, NFC for easy pairing, and a nifty carry case.

As we get closer to the Thanksgiving and Black Friday week here in the US, sales will start popping up all over the place. If you work retail in these next few weeks, I feel sorry for you.

They are marked down to $200, a savings of $50, at several major online retailers. Read More
