2. If you are looking for serviceable to decent noise cancelling headphones, check out either the ones by TaoTronics here https://amzn.to/2BSW4OA or the ones from Anker https://amzn.to/38GVoaZ I don’t use the noise cancelling that much, because it does not cancel out my bad dog’s barking, but the sound quality will satisfy the non-audiophile and battery life has come a long way. Plus, as someone on the Clockwise podcast pointed out, if you are wearing earbuds people will bother you, but if you are wearing a big set of cans, they won’t.
3. Some of you are saying, OMG I simply cannot put cheap headphones on my delicate ears. In that case, if money is no object, skip to 4, but if it is, check out https://camelcamelcamel.com/ It will help you figure out when the best time to buy something is.
