[Canada] Wireless noise-cancelling headphones

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey,

 

I'm looking for noise-cancelling headphones so that I can concentrate while working in a busy office or when the neighbours are loud

It doesn't have to be wireless, if there is a much better deal for a wired pair I'd consider it but it would be a big plus since I could carry them around more easily

 

I don't have a set budget, I have no idea how much they go for but I don't mind spending 200-300$+ if it's worth it

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Active noise cancelling is for constant noise like an airplane engines and not for noise that changes all the time although it would help. The best active noise cancelling headphones that sound decent are the soony wh1000xm3. Or Bose qc35s but they don't sound as good as the Sony's

My favorite based on sound alone are the b and o h8 or the Sennheiser PXC 550 but the noice cancelling isn't as good. The best passive noice cancelling is something that has a good seal around the ears and nothing beats IEMs in that regard. You can get an awesome pair of IEMs like the moondrop kanas pro add comply noice cancellation eartips and you should be good. You can even get custom molded eartips for your ears custom made for your ears and IEM

TaoTronics BH046 are very good option at around $100. Or if you can afford them (are used earphones an option?) Sony WH-1000XM3. 

But I'd say that IEM are the way to go for passive noise cancel

Hmm I see. I guess I would have to try them out. The noise isn't extremely loud, it's often muffled sounds coming through the walls when they're watching the television loudly or have people over. When I put my HD518 I don't really hear them anymore but I need to have music on at all times for them to be effective and that's annoying

 

The 1000MX3 look pretty awesome, I've seen them praised a lot. I'll check them out in store and see if I can find them used somewhere

Are these the ones?

Also, follow-up question, my main PC doesn't have bluetooth, do these come with their own "dongles" or do I need to get something like this :

Thank you very much for your help :)

Those look very good, thanks!

 

And you recommend getting comply tips as well to further improve the noise reduction?

You can find the t2s on sale for cheaper pretty often on massdrop or Ali Express.

They come with tips similar to the comply tips already but if you need something smaller or more comfortable comply tips on Amazon should have you covered

Gotcha

 

Last question for you, what's the different between T2, T2 Pro and T3? I don't mind paying a bit more for the T3 if I'd notice the difference :P

The t2 is a nice flat ear ud not a lot of anything but accurate and smooth and non offensive. The t2 pro is the t2 with increased highs a sharp more detail oriented I'm I personally don't like it as it can have a lot of sibilance. The t3 was my choice sounds more agressive and narrower than the t2 but has better bass and the highs are splashier this is my pick as I listen to a lot of hip hop. Also comes with the nicest cable to ship with any iem
