Choosing the Best Noise Cancelling in Ear Headphones

The world is a busy and noisy place and there are distractions all around you. It does not matter whether you are walking down a busy street or flying high in the sky on an airplane there are plenty of distractions and noise everywhere you go. One way to get around all of this is by using a set of headphones to block out all of the unwanted sound. But not just any set of earphones will do the job. You need a set of noise cancelling in ear headphones if you really want to block out unwanted noise and to get some peace and quiet.

You may not understand just how noise cancelling in ear headphones work and I found myself asking the same question.

It really is pretty simple. Noise cancelling in ear headphones have small microphones embedded which generate a counter wave that is completely opposite of the outside noise. When the outside noise meets with the microphone it does a really good job of getting rid of the outside distraction. That is why these earphones work so well. Modern technology is at work here.

So what should you be looking for when shopping for a pair of noise cancelling in ear headphones? While there are many things to consider some of the most important are cost, size, reputation, and how well do they work.


Noise cancelling in ear phones can be found no matter what your budget may be. The can run from as little as $15.00 to a several hundred dollars. It all depends on how important audio is to you. I had a cheap set I used to mow the grass with and they did a fair job of blocking out the noise of the lawnmower. However if audio is important to you then remember you get what you pay for. Spend enough to get a quality that suits your needs and you will be better off in the long run.


You will want to consider how big the earphones are before buying them. Make sure the set you are looking at are the right size. You want them to be small enough to take them where you want to go. When in doubt be sure to do your homework first.


Once you have narrowed your choice to a few different brands then it is always wise to consider the manufacturers reputation. The internet can really help you out in doing your research. Do some searches and see what other people are saying about the earphones you are looking at. You can easily get an accurate idea if the brand you are looking at is pleasing its customers simply by reading a few reviews.

How Well Do They Work?

The last thing you need to take into account is how well the noise cancelling headphones work. Remember you usually get what you pay for so you can expect the models that cost more to work better. But once again reviews are your best friend.
