When you’re knee-deep in Psych 101 flashcards and the Tau Kappa Epsilon frat star two tables down can’t stop snapping his gum, you’ll be glad you brought your headphones to the library. (Better yet if they’re of the noise-cancelling variety.)
Whether you need a pair for study sessions or gaming sessions, Amazon’s got you covered with a sale on several styles made by the esteemed brand Sennheiser. Depending on the model you choose — we’ve listed them below — you’ll save up to 52%.
Geared toward travelers, the Sennheiser PXC 550s sport a compact, collapsable design that makes them easy to stash inside your backpack. They’re hella cushy and comfortable (read: ideal for all-nighters) and feature excellent sound quality enhanced with NoiseGard Adaptive Noise-Cancelling technology. Better yet, with a battery life of up to 30 hours, you won’t have to charge them between classes.
Snag a pair from Amazon for only $229.99 — $119.96 off their suggested retail price of $349.95 (a 34% savings).
Boasting the biggest discount in Amazon’s sale, the minimalist Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 wireless headphones feature that same noise-cancelling technology, plus aptX codec support that makes them sound incredible over a Bluetooth connection. Their foldable design has been crafted from high-quality materials like stainless steel and real leather, and features two built-in mics for crystal-clear on-the-go phone calls.
Trying your hand at DJing this semester? (Hey, those student loans aren’t going to pay themselves.) You’ll need to pick up the highly-rated HD 650s, a pair of open, dynamic hi-fi stereo headphones with specially developed acoustic silk that Sennheiser markets as “an audiophile’s dream.” Their remarkably lightweight design comes in a titanium-silver finish.
Grab a pair on Amazon for just $319. (That’s $180.95 off their suggested retail price of $499.95 and a 36% savings.)
(For a similar model at a lower price, grab the Sennheiser HD 600 Open-Back Professional Headphones. They come in a black and gray, almost blue-ish finish and have a slightly less robust bass than the 650s, but not by much. Normally $399.95, they’re currently on sale for $267.44 — a 33% savings.)
Need to blow off some steam after midterms? Boot up GTA V and pop on the Sennheiser GAME ONE headset for a gaming experience with pure, defined sound quality. Available in a black and red finish, it comes with breathable, silky-soft, extra-large velvet earpads and a sensitive noise-cancelling mic that you can mute just by raising its boom arm.
Head over to Amazon to order the GAME ONE for just $133.42 — $116.53 (47%) off its usual price of $249.95.
