Budget friendly noise-cancelling headphones

While the price of some noise-cancelling headphones can reach around $900, you don’t need to fork out a small fortune to block out that screaming kid on the plane.

The TaoTronics Hybrid Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones [2019 New Version]
Price: $109.99
These headphones have a 30-hour battery life, with Bluetooth connectivity and a 4.5-star customer rating on Amazon. Their new noise-cancelling technology means they can reduce low-frequency sound by up to 96 per cent. They can completely recharge in just 45 minutes, and they have soft-cushioned headband and earpieces for comfort, and deliver powerful bass for any musos out there.

Price: $49.99
If you like to travel light, these might be the headphones for you. They’re both cheaper and more compact than most of their noise-cancelling cousins but can still run for eight hours with noise-cancelling turned on and 16 hours while it’s turned off. Integrated magnets help to hold the earpieces together, and their splash-proof design holds up against sweat and light rain. However, these headphones don’t block out human voices. While this may seem like a downside for some, it may work well for those who wish to remain alert to the people around them while in transit. These headphones received a 4.5-star rating on Amazon.

The Srhythm Lightweight Active Noise-Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones
Price: $85.98
These headphones effectively cancel out 85 per cent of background noise and have a battery life of over 16 hours. With rotating ear cuffs and adjustable headband for comfort, these headphones weigh just 180gs, making them perfect for travellers. These headphones also have a 4.5-star rating on Amazon.
