3 Popular Active Noise Cancellation Headphones Of 2019Who doesn’t love great headphones? While many claim to be the best, the sad reality is that not all of them are. Here’s our list of agency headphones that we’ve personally tested, compared and provided reviews on. None of these headphones are sponsored. This article is designed to help you make an informed purchase decision and is kind of a review article. Speaking of reviews, you can check out the best keyword tool out there through this SEMRush Review. Now let’s begin!
#3 Sennheiser 450 BT NCS
This is the best deal, the anti-headphones with the most value. It’s hard to find a very light pair of ANC headphones. Anything from the low to the mid-200-gram range will be the lightest while 290 grams and upstarts to get a bit heavy on the head. These weigh in at 238 grams. Now the sound signature is neutral balance and leans towards accurate surround than being bass boosted or bass-heavy. The only thing we really critiqued needed to play these at 80 to 90 per cent volume for these to become loud. While most other headphones are usually around 70 to 80 per cent volume, the active noise-cancelling performance is impressive.
They’re near if not identical to their flagship, the Sennheiser PCX 550s even though they don’t blackout as much. As the number one spot, you get very good active noise cancellation for the price. The reason why these are priced so low is that Sennheiser gives up on these special high-tech features like ambient wear and the automatic noise cancelling adjustments. Those are decent features but if you’re on a budget we also don’t care for it. Battery life is not bad either. We can surely live on this. It’s 19 hours with ANC on and 25 hours with ANC off. The more expensive top-of-the-line models are claiming up to 30 hours of use. Like we said the prices justify it. 19 hours is perfectly fine.
#2 Sennheiser PXC 550
We know this might sound a little bit weird, even redundant here but remember this is 100% based on our test. It’s another Sennheiser brand. This is the PXE 550’s. These take number four and it’ll make sense to you that PXC 550’s are the flagship anti headphones and includes all the premium features. They’re ambient to wear, automatically pause when you lift up your headphones, thirty hours of battery performance, touch controls, and not to mention a very decent app so you can tune the audio to your liking. Not to mention these are stupid light at 227 grams making these lighter than they look.
We admit although lighter they are not as comfortable but considering its price which is $249 it’s somewhat justified. Plus you get all the fancy Tony Stark tech that we’ve mentioned earlier. Now as for the active noise-cancelling performance this is why it’s not at the top. The ANC performance does very good though and reducing environmental noises but the next one does cut out the air and your surroundings a bit better. If you want a quality sound that you can adjust with its app, great battery life, super lightweight agency headphones and around that $250 price range, these are the ones to get. We had a great time listening to some project management courses on YouTube.
#1 Sony H900n
These had better ANC performance and blocking out noises than the previous Sennheiser’s. This does muffle down voices and especially the ambient air around you. They are Sony’s flagship ANC headphones at this time. Now you also get practically every feature on the flagships like transparency mode, touch-sensitive controls, amazing battery life at up to 28 hours and now we get L DAC Bluetooth transmission. This is the best wireless transmission right now. We know most might not be able to tell the audio quality but for the same price as the others if not cheaper why not future-proof yourself right? The audio is a bit more colorful than a Sennheiser 450 BT NCS and better than these Sennheiser PXC 550s. As mentioned earlier you can tune those to other previous headphones to your taste.

Now with the H 900 ends, they’re slightly above neutral being slightly more bass boosted and also using these at 60 to 70 per cent of the total volume capability. For sure they are loud enough. Several things to keep in mind though. These do sound leaked quite a bit and although the microphone is good for phone calls these do pick up background noises when you’re chatting with someone on the phone. These are heavier at 290 grams. Terence from PaperDoers says, “The weight is distributed evenly though and doesn’t feel too bad but they sure don’t feel light either. The ANC performance is better and right out of the box we personally preferred the more colorful, slightly more bass boosted audio signature.”
