Sometimes all you want in the world is a little peace and quiet. Short of moving to the country, a good pair of noise cancelling headphones is a great way to ensure solitude and block out distractions.

Here are some noise cancelling headphones that customers at Best Buy really like:
Bose headphones are a consistent winner with Best Buy shoppers, and hundreds of people have posted their reviews online for the world to see. For example, “khengs’ writes,
their quality of sound is really great… I have even used these bad boys out while cutting grass, and I can barely hear the lawnmower!
Bose’s noise cancelling technology strips out annoying background noise and audio bleed to allow you to focus on your music, and since Bose has a reputation for superior audio quality, you know they’ll sound amazing too.
Another great feature? While these are wireless, they also have an unpowered audio option, which enables continued music listening even if the battery runs out.
Folding ear cups make these easy to store or pack and they come with an included carrying case, plus a AAA battery that lasts up to 35 hours.
‘lgomez16’s review is short and sweet on these QuietComfort 25 headphones:
I love these headphones. They have great sound quality. Super comfortable and the noise cancelling is excellent
Sony’s offering uses two built-in microphones and a digital noise cancelling engine to cut out unwanted noise in these in-ear models. Automatic AI Noise Cancelling constantly monitors ambient sound in your environment and automatically selects the most effective noise cancelling mode so you aren’t distracted.
Powerful bass, plus compact 9mm drivers provide high sensitivity across a wide frequency range so you can hear powerful lows and bright highs. The handy tangle-free cable also keeps snags and tangles to a minimum.

If you travel a lot they are functional, comfortable and concealable. I enjoy that they look like regular everyday ear buds and don’t scream: ‘rob me’, the same way other pricey headphones do. They’re great to have around when you need to cut out background noise such as working in an airport lounge or from a hotel room.
MC from Calgary, AB concurs;
Sound quality of these headphones are excellent, very clear in the mid tones and flat reference class like. If you prefer heavy bass, these aren’t going to be good for you. – Ergonomics are very nice, the cord length is an ideal length for having the your audio player in the pocket, without being too long that it tangles up all the time.
Bose is back on our list because so many customers rave about them. These models are in-ear, for those who prefer that kind of low-profile style.
These ear buds feature Bose’s Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology noted above, but Bose says they’ll deliver noise reduction that rivals any full-sized headphones. The sound quality too is superb, with Bose promising “lifelike sound to give your music a depth and balance that keeps your favourite tunes fresh and alive.”
These earbuds give superb sound and the noise cancellation is particularly good for air travel. Very easy to use, and the charge lasts a long time.
Getting the opinions of others who’ve tried a product you’re currently shopping for is a great way to gauge whether something will be right for you. Let others’ experience be your teacher… or your personal shopper!
