“My husband, who is the ultimate techie, loves this pair of noise-cancellation headphones,” says Senior Commerce Editor Marina Liao. “The leather is soft and comfortable, so you can wear it around your neck on your way to work or the gym, while a quick three-minute charge gives you three hours of playback time. (This has a 30-hour battery life on it.) My favorite feature is that you can wave your hand over one of the ear pieces to turn the noise-cancellation feature on or off without taking the whole headphone off.”
