The best noise-canceling headphones
Bose QuietComfort 25
The QuietComfort 25 model takes Bose's already stellar noise-canceling headphones and levels them up to new heights.
Bose QuietComfort 20
Despite some downsides, including a high price, the Bose QuietComfort 20 offers the best noise-canceling in an in-ear headphone and should tempt frequent travelers looking for a more compact alternative to a full-size NC headphone, such as the Bose QuietComfort 15.
Monoprice Noise Canceling Headphones (with Active Noise Reduction Technology)
Monoprice's Noise Canceling Headphones are about 70 percent as good as the Bose QC15s for a little more than a third of the price.
