Noise Reduction Headphones

The Guide on finding the perfect Noise Calceling Headphone

There are quiet a number of Noise-Canceling Headphones out there and it can be a difficult task figuring out the right one for you. I have compiled a list of several headphones to meet this task. Over the last decade I personally have own 4 Noise-Canceling Headphones. Some of cost me a lot and some not so much. However, I have noticed, that the more I spend, the better sound quality I get. My advise to you when deciding is not to over spend, these headphones can add up quickly. The main purpose of these headphones is to block out noise while you are listening to your music. If you are looking for great sound, and are willing to sacrifice having background noise, then I suggest you go for a BOSS headphones. They have excellent quality.

Here is what to look for


The weight believe it or not is very important. I wish it was easy to say what the perfect weight should be. This is going to also match what sound quality you are going to get. Remember that you are going to be having these on your head, so if you choose for a better headphone, look at the weight before you buy.


All your Noise-Canceling Headphones needs batteries. Some require 2 AA, while others require a single AAA. Just remember that batteries will add weight to the overall headphone and will need to be replace from time to time.

Round the Ear?

My experiences have taught me that round the ear headphones work better for canceling out sound. Some people prefer noise-canceling headphones to be over the ear because they tend to get sweaty. However, this is based on the individual and your needs may vary. I personally have never had any issues with sweaty round the ear headphones.

How Easy is it to store away?

Most of today’s headphones are easy to put away. They have bendable parts that allow it to be put into a case or over protective packaging. In addition, some companies give you a protective case to store away.


One other thing:

Don't get pulled in the term hi-def. This is just a marketing strategy to make you think it can has good sound quality.
