The AirPods Pro are Apple’s most advanced pair of wireless earbuds to date, and one of, if not the most, popular pair on the market right now. Named one of our favorite wireless earbuds of the year, they have active noise cancellation, which the AirPods 3 do not, as well as adaptive EQ and Siri compatibility. Prices on the AirPods Pro shift pretty regularly, but $174 is one of the lowest we’ve seen in a while.

The Sony WH-XB910N over-ear headphones are a slight step down from the WH-1000XM4 pair that made our list of the best headphones for the year, but they also cost nearly $200 less. They’re one of our favorite pairs of Sony headphones on the market right now and come packed full of features that make them a bargain at $178. They’re an “Extra Bass” model, so they support deep, rich low-end frequencies, and are equipped with a digital sound enhancement engine for upscaled high-quality audio. They also have impressive noise-canceling capabilities with dual mics on both ear cups, and a battery life of up to 30 hours on a single charge.

For serious audiophiles looking for a bargain, this the best one you’ll find on this list. The Bose 700 noise-canceling headphones are a strong all-around pair and are one of our favorite over-ear headphones on the market in 2022. They’re suited for a variety of environments, with microphones inside and outside the earcups and 11 different levels of noise cancellation. The intuitive touch sensors let you easily adjust the volume and cycle through songs, and they have built-in voice control that’s compatible with both Google Assistant and Alexa. They boast impressive audio quality that comes close to rivaling the AirPods Max below for over $100 less.

Sennheiser

Sennheiser headphones look and feel like every bit of the premium product that they are. These Momentum 2 true-wireless earbuds were named one our best-sounding pairs for 2022 for their rich, detailed audio and impressive noise-canceling capabilities. They’re equipped with Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity for ultralow latency, and smart pause that automatically stops your music when you remove an earbud. They also have an IPX4 water resistance rating, and a battery life of up to 28 hours when you account for the charging case.

Sleek and stylish, Beats are one of the most popular headphone brands on the market. And fortunately, these Studio 3 over-ear headphones offer plenty of substance along with their flashy looks. They’re equipped with Apple’s W1 chip, which means they pair seamlessly with Apple devices and are compatible with Siri voice assistant. They feature active noise-canceling capabilities which can be toggled off to help preserve battery, extending it to an impressive 40 hours in low-power mode. They also calibrate your audio in real time for a premium listening experience.

Even on sale, the AirPods Max are pretty pricey, but they do have the build quality to back it up. A stainless steel frame and aluminum earcups give them the weight and feel of an ultra-premium pair of headphones, and the memory foam earpads make them supremely comfortable despite their size. They also feature some of the absolute best noise-canceling capabilities on the market right now.

Note: They’re automatically discounted by $70, but be sure to activate the instant coupon on the product page to save an extra $29 at checkout.

Samsung

Samsung’s flagship noise-canceling earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro, were another pair featured on our list of the best wireless earbuds for 2022. They feature four ambient levels of noise cancellation, and an 11mm woofer and 6.5mm tweeter in each earbud for high quality audio. They also have an IPX7 water resistance rating so there’s no need to worry about sweat or rain.
