When it comes to noise-canceling headphones, the gold standard is the. But, man, that $349 price tag. Do you really have to pay that much for comfy, quiet listening?
You do not: For a limited time, and while supplies last, you can once again get the Srhythm NC25 wireless ANC headphones for $36 with promo code JUT24NWB. (Tested and verified at 6:45 a.m. PT.) They normally sell for $60.
If you want my deep-dive review of the NC25, head back to my(when the sale price was $42). Here, I'll just recap it and add some new thoughts.
To my ears, these headphones sound good. The active noise-canceling (ANC) capabilities work well. The battery life is an impressive 16 hours, and Srhythm has wisely extended the warranty to one year (up from the original, disappointing, three months).
As before, Fakespot and ReviewMeta are strongly at odds when it comes to vetting the user reviews, which now number nearly 70. My review remains the same: Don't expect a Bose-level listening experience, but do expect a surprisingly decent one -- especially considering the price.
Great gift item, too.
