Why people love it
  • Noise-cancelling ear buds
  • Comfortable buds that create good seal
  • Convenient headphones you can use anywhere

Noise-cancelling headphones tend to be bulky and cause wearers to sweat a lot. Since these are in ear bud form, they’re lightweight, comfortable, convenient, and a great overall value.

The sound quality isn’t the best, so these might not be great if you’ve got a friend obsessed with perfect highs, lows, and in-betweens. The earpieces also have a tendency to split in half, so you’ll want to be extra careful when using these.


Meaningfulness: If you’ve got a friend who travels a lot and has a need for drowning out screaming babies, loud eaters, or just the general ambient noises on public transportation, they’ll be a big fan of this gift.

Originality: There are actually two pairs of noise-cancelling headphones that made this list, but these ear buds put an original twist on the typical over-the-ear sets people use.

Price: These are definitely expensive for in-ear headphones, but with their guaranteed noise-cancellation capabilities, they’re worth the price.
