5 Best Noise Cancelling Headphones in 2020

hey guys in this video we're going to be

checking out the five best noise

cancelling headphones you can buy right

now I made this list based on my

personal opinion and hours of research

and I've listed them based on sound

quality performance features and price

I've included options for every type of

consumer so whether you're looking for a

budget set of ANC cans or a premium set

with all the bells and whistles of the

product for you if you want more

information and updated pricing on the

products mentioned be sure to check the

links in the description below okay so

let's get started with the video the

fifth product on our list is the anchor

sound core life cue 20 these are our

best budget noise cancelling headphones

if you're looking for a pair of budget

bluetooth headphones with active noise

cancellation then the anchor sound core

life cue 20 may be the best headphones

for you currently priced at $60 you'll

be quite surprised to hear that the life

q20 not only delivers surprisingly good

sound but also has active noise

cancellation you'll find the build is

quite solid especially for the price

point the adjustable padded headband

with memory foam ear cups are super

comfy and also foldable and swivel for

easy storage the active noise

cancellation mode is quite impressive

and blocks out 90% of low and mid-range

noise if you're a skeptic because of the

cheap price you'll be more than

surprised at how well it manages to

block out the external noises however

unlike the air pods Pro the q20 lacks

the transparency mode feature to let

some of the ambient noise is back in

when needed you also get pretty good

battery performance with up to 40 hours

of playback but unfortunately gets cut

in half with the ANC turned on in terms

of performance you'll find the sound

quality of the cue 20 pretty solid

despite its price putting it close to

the top of its class the overall

soundstage is good with a decent dynamic

range and the base up feature gives you

up to 100% more bass taking the thumps

in songs and making them thuds but maybe

a little too much to have on for every

song the features are drivers 40

millimeter dynamic drivers that are high

res audio certified hybrid ANC

engineered with internal and external

microphones to cancel out up to 90

percent of external noise bass up 100

percent stronger bass with the feature

turned on voice calls cue 20s microphone

is more than clear for great voice calls

the pros are sound quality impressive

for its price point comfortable memory

foam ear cups mold around your ear for

extra comfort battery up to 40 hours of

playback duel mode can be used wireless

or wired and for the cons ambient noise

cuts lows and mids but voices can seep

through if you're looking for a budget

pair of bluetooth headphones with active

noise cancellation then the anchor sound

core life q20 delivers impressive sound

with a few nice features to give you

plenty of bang for one of the lowest

prices around the 4th products on our

list is the Sennheiser HD 4.50 BT NC

sound quality and c and you know you're

getting a great product from sennheiser

currently priced at $95 the Sennheiser

HD 4.50 BT NC offers the Sennheiser

sound with a NC at an affordable price

without sacrificing too much for your

listening pleasure you'll find the look

is understated with the matte black

finish and the build quality is solid

despite the all plastic design that

folds up nicely the ear cups feature

very cushy memory foam that you'll find

comfortable to wear but it's covered

with synthetic leather that doesn't feel

as luxurious and isn't as breathable as

real leather found on their higher ended

headphones if you prefer earbuds for

convenience and not having to worry

about breathable ear cups then you'll

want to check out the Apple earpods pro

coming up next you'll enjoy Sennheiser's

powerful bass that comes across well

with good definition as well as the

sparkling trebles and warm mids overall

the sound quality is quite decent but

for the discerning audiophile the HD

4.50 BT NC won't hold up to the refined

sound found on the premium Sennheiser

models but a Sennheiser headphones with

a NC for under $100 is a pretty sweet

the ambient noise fairly well on their

own but once you switch on the anc

you'll find it does a good job at

removing most of the additional

background noise the key features are

battery up to 25 hours of playback but

only about 19 hours with anc enabled and

for the cons anc activation enabling anc

can be tricky ventilation lacks

ventilation in the ear cups if you're

looking for noise cancelling headphones

from a renowned brand name that's still

perfect for you the third product on our

list is the Apple earpods pro these are

earpods Pro are extremely comfortable

and deliver exceptional sound but did
