When looking for quality over-ear noise cancelling headphones to listen to music or make calls, consider factors such as comfort, noise cancellation technology, sound amplification, battery life and hands-free controls. These factors determine the top rated noise-cancelling wireless headphones available.

Block Out Noises With Active Technology

Active noise-cancelling technology blocks outside noise so you can immerse yourself in your music or audiobook or have a distraction-free phone call. This technology uses internal and external microphones to block out continuous noises, such as those from plane engines and office chatter.

Comfortable Fit for All-Day Wear

Comfortably wear top-rated over-ear noise cancelling headphones all day, thanks to soft, foam earpads that relieve pressure. The pad flexibility allows the cushions to form to your ears for a personalized fit that also leaves room for ventilation. Some options offer swivelling earpads for more flexibility.

A Portable Design to Take Anywhere

Consider noise-cancelling active headphones that are foldable for easy storage and portability. You can also find carrying cases or other similar headphones accessories to make travelling with these headphones easier.

Quick Charging for a Long Battery

Most of the top rated noise-cancelling wireless headphones retain a charge for 20 hours, although some can last up to 60 hours. A quick 10-minute charge can give you up to 5 hours of usage time. Charging cases and other Bluetooth headsets accessories can make your listening sessions last longer.

Smart Control via the App

Have greater control at your fingertips by using a smartphone app on Android™ and iOS® to adjust headphone settings. Control the amount of ambient sound that filters in through the noise-cancelling technology, or adjust the equalizer on most models through the app. You can also configure the headphone volume settings and tailor them to your preferences.

Cut the Cord With Wireless Headphones

Lood for noise cancelling wireless headphones that eliminate dependence on a cord to allow for less restricted physical movement. Wireless technology equips these noise-cancelling Bluetooth® headphones with the ability to play music and other forms of audio up to 50 feet away from the connected device, giving you more freedom.

Amplify Sounds for Greater Listening

Amplifiers built into the headphones have drivers that enhance beats, frequencies and punch up the bass. At the same time, audio calibration increases the clarity of sound for music and voices. Pair these with other audio/video accessories for an immersive listening experience for music, games and movies.

Enjoy Hands-Free Listening With Voice Control

Keep your hands free while staying connected with the option to use voice assistance through Google Assistant™ or Alexa™. You can make phone calls, text friends, make a grocery list, choose your music and get weather updates with digital assistants.

Clear Calls With a Hands-Free Microphone

The built-in microphone in over-ear noise-cancelling headphones captures your voice clearly while eliminating external distractions such as wind and traffic. The noise-cancelling technology also blocks out external noises during your call so you can hear the other speaker without disruption.

"I'm not an audiophile, but I've used flagship noise-cancelling over-ear headphones before. So I'm comparing to those when I write these: - Light and comfortable. Other models, I have the urge to take them off after a while. I can get over that urge, but there was still that nag of discomfort--like sitting in a chair that you haven't adjusted to you..."
