- AKG N60 NC Wireless
The AKG N60 NC Wireless is a small pair of noise canceling headphones, designed for both travelers and public transport users.
Their lightweight, foldable design makes them far more portable than their wider circa-ear competitors, and their 15-hour wireless battery life is more than acceptable given their size – and they also work passively.
As far as noise reduction is concerned, the N60 NC Wireless cannot compete with Bose’s degree of silence, but do enough to make external sounds barely more than a whisper.
They also have great sound, offering energetic, precise and well-organized performance that is both fun and expressive. A great set that clearly deserves attention,

- Sony MDR-100ABN h.ear on Wireless
The Sony MDR-100ABN h.ear on Wireless combines hyper-credible design with wireless functionality and excellent active noise suppression prowess.
Of course, their sound is also very good, although it is better to ensure that they are loaded. Indeed, if you use them passively, the sound is less good (that said, the 20 hours of autonomy that you should not fall). For even better sound, the MDR-100ABM supports Bluetooth aptX and the LDAC codec from Sony, although you need a compatible source to enjoy it.
The best is that they are also very cheap, much cheaper than their rivals. In short, an excellent choice for any inhabitant of cities wishing to reduce the hubbub without having to spend a fortune, it was our selection of the best noise reduction headphones.
How to choose the helmet that suits you best?
When considering the purchase of this type of helmet, you need to ask yourself some basic questions.
Above all, you must decide on their form. Do you want hyper-transportable in-ear headphones or a larger or larger model? With most intra-ear pairs, all noise-canceling material is contained in a small remote box placed somewhere along the cable. They are great for the gym but not always as insulating as their supra-ear equivalents.
On larger pairs, like the popular Bose and Sony models, everything is contained in the headphones themselves, giving them a neater look and making them easier to use – not to mention they’re more efficient. That said you might be interested in a folding design, which makes it easier to transport.
Also pay attention to autonomy and make sure it is enough for your needs. In recent times, count on average 20 hours, even if some devices offer much more, especially if you keep the cable under the elbow in case of emergency. Be sure to check this point because not all ANC headphones work passively without a battery.
Finally, some ANC earphones have advanced technologies to make sure you are always aware of the outside world when it’s needed, by turning off or temporarily reducing noise reduction. This is useful for pedestrians and cyclists, who need to be a little more aware of their environment.
