The TaoTronics SoundSurge 60 are a good value at 33% off.

TaoTronics

There's a real dearth of budget-priced noise-canceling headphones out there. When we recently wrote about the best noise-canceling headphones of 2020, most of the entries clocked in between $150 and $350 (like the superb Sony WH1000XM3), and only one sub-$100 headset even made the list, the Anker Soundcore Life 2.  But what if you want to spend less than $50? Or even under $40? Are there any decent noise-canceling cans out there for you? Well, yeah -- I've got just the thing. Right now, you can get the TaoTronics SoundSurge 60 ANC Wireless Headphones for $34 when you use the coupon on the product and apply discount code CNETDE60 at checkout. That's $6 less than the last time we told you about a deal for these particular headphones. 

CNET hasn't reviewed the TaoTronics SoundSurge 60, but it has a very respectable set of user ratings on Amazon. Under the hood, they have 40mm large-aperture drivers, which suggests they can deliver satisfying bass. Now, to be clear, headphones in this price range -- especially packed with ANC (active noise cancellation) circuitry -- are not going to wow and amaze you with a wide and dynamic aural range for music playback. 

But these are probably very serviceable for gaming (especially with the 40mm drivers for explosions and gunfire) and more importantly, can help you work with minimal interruption now that you probably have to contend with all the usual noise around the house. Factor in 30 hours of battery life (and a quick charge that gives you two hours of playback after just five minutes of charging) and I suspect that $34 is a great deal for these budget headphones. This offer should be good while supplies last or until April 18, whichever comes first.
