One of the most affordable over-the-ear options, the Sony WH-CH710N Wireless Headphones offer great noise cancellation at an incredible price. These headphones from Sony utilize Dual Noise Sensor technology, which automatically detects the environment around you so that it can provide you with the ideal listening experience. Even more exciting is that these headphones offer up to 35 hours of battery life and charge super fast, so you can keep listening longer without interruption. You can get up to an hour of playback time from only 10 minutes of charge, so you’ll never be without your music, even when you’re on the go. You can even switch to Ambient Sound mode when you’re listening in any situation where you would like to be more aware of the world around you, like during a commute on the train or on a solo walk. These headphones charge via USB Type-C for the fastest possible charge.

Beasts Solo 3 — $131, was $200

The Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones have been a fan favorite for a long time, and that is not without good reason. These headphones were designed for high performance and feature both the Apple W1 chip and Class 1 wireless Bluetooth connectivity. Perhaps one of the reasons Beats Solo3 are so popular is because they deliver up to 40 hours of battery life, so they can get you through a full week of commuting, walks, and workouts without ever needing to be recharged. Even if they do get low on battery, thanks to Fast Fuel technology, you can get up to three hours of playback from only five minutes of charging. Their sleek design is both affordable and totally portable; these headphones are the perfect over-the-ear option to take with you on the go, and they enable you to take calls, control your audio, and use Siri with their on-ear controls. It’s hard to imagine a more affordable all-around headphone than the Beats Solo3.

Bose QuietComfort 45 — $249, was $329

Thanks to six additional external microphones and Bose’s enhanced signal processing, the QC45s block out as much noise as possible.

Sony manages to outdo itself time and time again, the perfect example of which is the WH-1000XM5 headphones, a step up from the WH-1000XM4 model and some of the best headphones on the market. This upgraded model features two processors and eight microphones, making them pretty unmatched when it comes to noise cancellation and call quality. Even on an airplane, you’ll hardly be able to tell that there’s any noise around you at all when you’re enjoying music on the WH-1000XM5s. They feature up to 30 hours of battery life, making them ideal for travel, but should your battery get low, don’t worry, because, in three minutes, you can charge them enough to last another three hours. The Speak-to-Chat feature is definitely one of the most unique features about these headphones — as soon as you begin a conversation with someone nearby, Speak-to-Chat stops your music and lets ambient sound in so you can have your conversation without having to adjust your headphones.
