Traveling season is upon on us and packing lists are underway.
A dependable pair of active noise-canceling headphones is a must for long flights, car rides, and obnoxious conversations from nearby strangers — or you’ll be arriving in a foreign airport with no sleep and a massive headache.
Your wallet is likely already hurting from paying for the vacation in the first place, and dropping $350 on headphones isn’t the move right now. What is the move is snagging the Audio Technica SonicPro Active Noise Canceling Headphones (ATH-MSR7NC), which are $134 off and just $165 on Amazon today.
Audio Technica isn’t a name you hear as often in the headphones world, but don’t be fooled. Beats and Bose are great, but being backed by Travis Scott and Julian Edelman is certainly helping to get them into the popular club. We’ve heard reports in the past of low quality from the brand, but that was years ago and Audio Technica seems to have gotten their act together — or they wouldn’t have been a CES 2016 Editor’s Choice Winner from Review.com.
Illuminate your listening experience with high-res audio technology (a transducer frequency performance to at least 40 kHz) and 45 mm true motion drivers for undistorted playback.
The microphone chilling on top of ear cups picks up ambient noise and blocks it. (Fun fact: It’s on the top instead of the side to keep noise-cancellation unaffected by the user’s head movement or by wind noise.) Even with active noise-canceling on, you can get up to 30 hours of euphoria in a single charge.
