Beats Studio3 Wireless Noise Canceling On-Ear Headphones $169.95 (usually $349.95)


At under $200, the Beats Studio3 noise canceling headphones are a pretty fantastic deal.

Standout features are pristine quality, approximately 22 hours of battery life, and “quick” charging, which delivers three hours of playback after just five minutes. With a cool design and a variety of colors, it is also a beautiful fashion accessory. A padded headband and ergonomic fit add comfort and the headphones fold neatly into a large pocket or the included soft case, which has a carabiner clip that can be attached to carry-on luggage if space is tight.

Apple AirPods

Apple AirPods Pro (2nd generation)$223 (usually $249)


With what is officially Amazon’s lowest price ever on second-generation Airpods Pro, these offer improved noise cancellation (twice as much, according to Apple), thanks to their M1 chip, as well as a redesigned acoustic vent and microphone. There’s also a new touch control that lets you control your music and adjust the volume right from the stem. But perhaps the biggest improvement is the increased battery life, which gives you six hours of listening time per charge. The battery case provides 30 hours of listening time.

Apple AirPods (2nd generation)$89.99 (usually $159)


With a discount of just under 50 per cent, it might be time to give Apple’s ubiquitous long-stem headphones a try.

Convenient sensors let you pause and resume music by inserting and removing the earbud, while the “Hey Siri” feature activates hands-free voice control. Apple advertises a battery life of around five hours and the headphones come with a magnetic closure charging case. Note that the stock buds don’t have any noise canceling capabilities like the pros (above).

You can customize the sound quality through the app, and the ergonomic design will fit most adults perfectly.
