"Epic sound quality with unsurpassed noise cancellation" says Mr.Noseley in his five-star review.

Amazon Echo Buds $129.99

Black Echo Buds wireless in-ear headphones with black charging case

Seeking in-ear headphones that block noise? We're loving Amazon's new Echo Buds. These wireless earbuds deliver immersive sound and feature Bose Active Noise Reduction Technology and sealed in-ear design limits background noise. They're also sweat-resistant for workouts, work with Alexa to stream music, play Audible audiobooks, make calls, or get directions. Don't worry about power, they give up to 5 hrs music playback per charge, up to 2 hrs with a 15-min quick charge, and up to 20 hrs with the charging case.

"A game changer....great sound and noise cancellation, plus Alexa in your ears." says MW in their five-star review. 

Apple AirPods Pro $234

Not to be left out of the active noise cancellation category, Apple has introduced their AirPods Pro wireless headphones. They feature active noise cancellation for immersive sound as well as a transparency mode for hearing and connecting with the world around you, and "adaptive EQ" that automatically tunes music to the shape of your ear. Sweat and water resistant, they come with three sizes of soft, tapered silicone tips for a customized fit, and quickly connect to Apple devices for easy set-up.

"Apple hit a home run with these... I wanted the original AirPods but couldn't get them to fit in my ear. I have tried other true wireless earbuds and never liked the look or fit of them. With the AirPods Pro, Apple has answered my prayers, and they're even better than I could have imagined. The sound cancellation is LEGIT. I own the Bose 700 noise canceling headphones and while they're not as good at noise cancellation as those, I'm blown away by how close it is. The sound quality as well sounds very good to me. I'm by no means an audiophile but I'm a little picky as far as this goes and I'm more than pleased. The ability to switch from noise canceling to transparency mode is awesome as well." says TCC in her five-star review.

Anker Soundcore Life Q20 Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling Headphones $59.99

Anker Soundcore Life Q20 noise cancelling on-ear headphones in black

For impressive noise-cancelling functionality at a budget-friendly price, try Anker's Soundcore Life Q20 Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling Headphones. They reduce ambient noises up to 90%, detecting and cancelling out out a wider range of low and mid-frequency noises such as cars and airplane engines. They also produce Hi-Red audio when your ready to rock it out,up to 40 hours of non-stop playtime in wireless active noise cancellation mode (at 60% volume), and an enormous 60 hours in standard music mode—all for under 60 US dollars!

"I have never owned or used any noise-cancelling products before. That said, I read a lot of reviews of different products so I could formulate realistic expectations. Everything is relative, and I'm sure that headphones costing $300+ probably before better than these, but for what I paid I am thrilled. These exceed my expectations by leaps and bounds. I listen to quiet, ambient "chill" or EDM music during my work day. These allow me to listen at a very quiet level, while the ANC filters out the fan on my desk, and most of the background noise of other people. Yes, you can still hear intermittent noise like voices and phones, but these do help, and they are far more effective than the ear buds I was using. " says W.T. Cook in his product review. 

RHA T20 Wireless in-Ear Monitors $169.95

RHA's T20 wireless in-ear headphones with detachable housings in black

For accurate audio with a secure in-ear fit, RHA's T20 Wireless in-Ear Monitors are an excellent choice. They have filters that allow you to tweak the sound signature to your personal taste and are sweat-resistant, but their coolest feature by far is that the earpieces can be used wirelessly or with the included cable for passive, wired listening. 

"These are the best IEMs I've ever used. They're built like a tank, with all metal housing. The dual drivers provide big sound with great instrument separation. Kick drums actually have Thump and cymbals shimmer. Lead guitar and rhythm guitar are stand out easily in most mixes. The Bluetooth is really just an added plus. They are well worth the price." says Andrew Lovata in his five-star review. 

Jabra Elite Active 75t Earbuds $199.99

Jabra Elite Active earbuds in copper and black

Need earbuds that can keep up with your most challenging workouts while delivering superior sound? Try Jabra's Elite Active 75t Earbuds. Great for music and making calls, these waterproof and sweat-proof earbuds have a special grip coating to keep them firmly in place, up to 7.5 hours of battery on a single charge, and HearThrough, an integrated volume button for letting the sounds of the real world. 

"These are my first 'truly wireless' headphones, and I couldn't be happier with them! I have a pair of Sony over ears that are my usual go to headphones, and I still love them, but for working out, doing outdoor chores, or just casual one ear situations, these have been absolutely fantastic. Best part is that I can easily keep them in my pocket at all times giving me access to music, podcasts, or a hands free phone call anytime and anywhere. I've only had them about a month or two, but the build quality feels good, the sound quality is on par with (or better than) all of my previous, wired in ear buds, and the battery life has been surprisingly long with the benefit of the case charging. I would absolutely (and have) recommend them to others." says ajay in their glowing online review. 

EarFun Wireless Earbuds $49.99

Truly wireless earbuds for under 50 US dollars? Yes! While EarFun's Wireless Earbuds don't deliver the clarity of higher-end wireless earbuds that cost $150 or more, they do sound surprisingly good and they're fully waterproof and feature Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C charging, and wireless charging . Not bad for budget-priced buds!

"Let me preface this by saying this is the fourth pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones I've tried in the past few months so I feel like I've had a bit of experience...Just a bit. I can say with absolute certainty that these are well worth the price. I had no idea I could get this kind of sound and battery life from a pair of ear buds in this price range." says Ryno D. Bones in his product review.

V-Moda M-200 Professional Studio Headphones $349.95 

Boss V-Moda M-200 professional studio wired on-ear headphones in black

For true audophiles, we recommend the V-Moda M-200 Professional Studio Headphones from Boss.
