So, you have decided that the best sound cancelling headphones are worth spending your hard earned money on. You go to a local electronics store and search for headphones and you get what you think is the best, but really it isn’t. It turns out that the headphones are more like a set of glasses than anything else. In order to get the best sound cancelling headphones, there are a few things to look at first.
The first decision to make would be whether or not you prefer over-the-ears or in-ears. There are only a couple of considerations to make here, so let’s take a look at them. Sound quality. When searching for the best sound quality, generally you will be looking for over-the-ears. This is because the space between your ear and the over-driver ear piece is smaller and hence much more susceptible to noise.
With the Bose Quiet Comfort, the Space Compositor ear piece moves closer to the head for better noise cancelling properties. When looking at the Space Compositor ear pieces, keep in mind that they are all made out of the same material. This is so the same material is used on all of the Bose Quiet Comfort headphones. This makes for one of the best headphones out there. If you’re a fan of the Space Compositors, you will love these headphones!
The next factor to consider when shopping for headphones is the microphone included in the set. There are several different microphones included in the set, including but not limited to the Sony ICXperia S, the Bose opera ion, the Sennheiser HD 800i, the Logitech Zodiac Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones, and the Dell xperia arc. Keep in mind the differences between these and other models, as some will be better than others. The Sony ICXperia S for example, has an excellent sound quality but is the most expensive of the bunch.
The next thing to consider when looking at the best sound-cancelling headphones is the battery life of the headphones. The battery life for the Sony ICXperia S is great, while the other models may not last as long. For the most part, the batteries do not last very long, and the battery life could become an issue if the user does not charge the battery completely before the battery dies out. One way around this is to find a model with a two-year warranty, as you can replace the batteries yourself. However, most people will find it difficult to justify the expense, as the battery life on these headphones often does not make up for the price premium.
Comfort is also an important factor to look at. The in-ear and over-the-neck models are the most comfortable. These types of headphones produce the least amount of noise, which helps to keep the user comfortable. Most noise-cancelling headphones will have the ear pieces moving all throughout the audio track, which will result in the user’s ears becoming warm and causing them to become uncomfortable.
Bose has been known to have great products in the past, such as their QuietComfort 25 headphones and the in-ears from their Sound Control headphones series. Bose currently produces the best sound-cancelling headphones, which are the Skyview H3 headphones and the Airwave QS. Both of these headphones are highly rated by both users and headphone reviewers. Because of this the Bose company is a very reputable brand in the marketplace.
There is another manufacturer that many people prefer to use when looking for noise-cancelling headphones. This manufacturer is called Nura Nakamakom. They produce headphones that are in the same price range as the Bose and many of the other top brands like Panasonic, Omega and so forth. Nura has produced some amazing headphones, including the famed Livewire Avanti, but you need to keep in mind that the prices of their Avanti’s compared to other top brands like the Bose and Sennheiser are quite extreme. Their prices however, are nowhere near as high as the prices of over-the-ears or in-the-ear headphones. Therefore, if you are on a budget, you should take a close look at the Nura brand for your next headphone purchase.
