What's an Affordable Option for Noise-Canceling Headphones?

Episode 1652 (1:48:04)

Ronnie from California

Ronnie would like to buy active noise-canceling headphones, but the Bose headphones are way too expensive. Is there a more affordable option? Leo says that there are far better options now that don't cost an arm and a leg. The WireCutter says that the Bose 700s are the best, but they are costly. Anker's Soundcore Life Q20 is around $40 right now. Audio Technica makes a good pair!

Leo actually prefers in-ear monitors from Etymotics. They are cheaper and seal your ears from ambient noise.
