When shopping for headphones, look for active noise cancellation

One affordable device that features ANC is Paww WaveSound 3, now 50% off

CNN —  

As part of an ongoing series, the CNN Underscored team showcases outstanding deals you can shop right now in the CNN Store. Each week, our staff features a product we think you’ll love. This week, we’re highlighting the Paww WaveSound 3’s Noise-Canceling Bluetooth Headphones, $74.99.

Noise-canceling headphones go beyond your typical pair by tapping into active noise cancellation technology. While your standard over-the-ear devices simply block out noises, ANC produces sound waves that cancel out incoming ones, resulting in little or no outside sound at all. The only downside is that devices with ANC tend to have a much heftier price tag.

But that doesn’t mean that all powerful noise-canceling headphones will run you a few hundred dollars. Take Paww WaveSound 3’s Noise-Canceling Bluetooth Headphones ($74.99;, for example. These Bluetooth headphones are fitted with “superior” active noise cancellation to help you immerse yourself in your favorite songs, movies and games without getting distracted by what’s going on around you. And since they can block out as much as 20 decibels of unwanted ambient noise, the headphones are ideal for airplane travel.

Other notable features include a comfortable and compact design, which means the headphones can be worn for longer and can be stowed in a small bag (they’re easily foldable). A built-in microphone allows you to take incoming calls with ease. And last, but certainly not least, is the device’s ability to deliver balanced, clear sounds.

Of course, the real highlight here is the price. While normally $149.99, the Paww WaveSound 3 headphones are currently 50% off at the CNN Store. That means you can get your hands on a quality pair for a fraction of the cost.

Now that’s music to our ears.
