Sony’s Noise-Canceling Headphones Were Already Affordable. Now They’re 50% Off.
Block out your coworkers for cheap with the WH-CH700N model
Technology is supposed to make our lives better, so why does it feel like most new gadgets add more stress than they take away? Smartphones are addictive and fragile, home security cameras are watching us, and Alexa is always listening. But there is at least one perfect invention that has absolutely zero drawbacks: noise-canceling headphones.
Personally, I don’t know how I flew in coach or worked in a crowded office without them. If you’re in the market for a pair, or your current setup doesn’t mute your coworkers enough, Sony’s WH-CH700N wireless noise-canceling over-ear headphones are 50% off over at PC Mag’s shop.
This model was already Sony’s affordable version of noise-canceling cans, but now that they’re only $100, they’re hard to beat. The Bluetooth set is available in black or blue and offers active noise-canceling, up to 35 hours of play, an integrated microphone, and compatibility with both Android and iOS voice assistants. Plus, a quick ten minute charge will power them up for an hour of wireless use.
No, these aren’t the best possible noise-canceling headphones on the market, but reviewers said the bang-for-your-buck was high even at full price.
SoundGuys said “the WH-CH700N is a lightweight, portable set of headphones with a fine microphone for those who frequently telecommute to work.” Digital Trends said “Sony’s excellent digital sound enhancement engine (DSEE) means that your favorite songs will sound fantastic, even without a cable.” And you, once you put them on, will say, “What? Sorry, couldn’t hear you with my new noise-canceling headphones.”
