Noise canceling earbuds: The best of a small pool

Whether you travel for work, commute to work, or just like listening to music while you drink your morning coffee, noise canceling headphones are great, but they can still be bulky. Fortunately, there are quite a few manufacturers that stuff this tech into earbuds. These are the best noise canceling earbuds you can get right now.

For our top five picks, you can find the isolation and frequency response charts at the end of each image gallery. You can learn more about how to read our charts here.


Editor’s note: this list of the best noise canceling earbuds was updated on June 14, 2022, to include the Sony WF-1000XM4 in the Best list, microphone demos, and updated charts, as well as add sections on the Sennheiser MOMENTUM 3 True Wireless. We added the Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless to the Notable mentions section.

Why is the Bose QuietComfort 20 the best set of noise canceling earbuds?

Bose is one of the leaders in active noise canceling (ANC) technology. After years on top of the game, its larger noise canceling headphones have just begun to be challenged by other manufacturers. When it comes to earbuds, though, Bose is still one of the best. Although the QC20 has been updated with a newer wireless version, we’re keeping it at the top spot because you don’t have to worry about battery life. That said, if your phone doesn’t have a headphone jack, you may need a dongle.

The cable ends in a 90-degree connector and a few inches above that you’ll find a slim block of components. Inside is a battery that will give you about 16 hours of noise canceling and music playback. It houses an Aware Mode button, so you can hear what’s going on around you when you need to. Of course, you’ll also be able to control volume and playback thanks to a small control module on the wire, but make sure to pay attention to which model you get as it’s specific to Android or iOS.

Enjoy a host of features with the Sony WI-1000XM2 neckband headset

Sony has the noise canceling market cornered with its flagship over-ear and true wireless models. The little-discussed WI-1000XM2 neckband earphones is a great buy for frequent flyers not yet ready to jump ship to totally wireless earbuds.

Each earbud has one inward and one outward-facing microphone to record and cancel out unwanted sounds. The proprietary QN1 chip powers the noise canceling and is energy efficient; this chip also features a 32-bit DAC and headphone amp for clear, loud sound. You get your pick of Bluetooth codecs to stream (SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX HD, and LDAC) and you can even listen by wire with the included cable.

The earbuds support fast charging: 10 minutes of charge provides 80 minutes of playback, and you get 10 hours of listening from a full charge. The Sony WI-1000XM2 supports Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant. There are only two drawbacks to this headset: price and microphone quality. User reviews indicate the headset has disappointing microphone quality for the price. If you can overlook these shortcomings, you’ll enjoy these wireless noise canceling earphones.

iPhone owners should just go with the Apple AirPods Pro

Apple has finally made the AirPods good with the AirPods Pro, and that’s mainly due to the better-fitting ear tips. Not only does it mean more people can actually wear it, but the AirPods Pro blocks out background sound just because it seals your ear canals from the outside world. Throw on the new active noise canceling that Apple put in the AirPods Pro, and it does a pretty great job at blocking outside noise. It isn’t as strong as something like the Sony WF-1000XM4 true wireless earbuds, but it’s way better than the original AirPods.

Besides the active noise canceling, the AirPods Pro also has a transparency mode that uses microphones to pipe in external sounds so you can hear what’s going on. It’s super helpful when you’re trying to hear what the pilot or conductor is saying but don’t want to remove your earbud. The new shorter stem is where you’ll find the pressure-sensitive playback controls that let you skip between tracks and toggle ANC on or off.

Cut the cord with the Sony WF-1000XM4

To fully free yourself of wires, check out the true wireless, Sony WF-1000XM4. This flagship set of buds supplies a comfortable, sleek fit with the latest ANC technology. The noise canceling greatly improves on the previous WF-1000XM3 by reducing low-end noise by 25dB more attenuation at 100Hz. With an IPX4 rating the WF-1000XM4 withstands light splashes and sweat. Battery life with ANC on is a healthy, 7 hours and 43 minutes, with an additional two charges in the case.

Sony WF-1000XM4

With the earbuds, you get the OS-agnostic Sony Headphones app where you can tweak the already pretty nice sounding frequency response, which somewhat under-emphasizes treble. Onboard the WF-1000XM4 are AAC, LDAC, and SBC codecs, accommodating Apple and Android users alike. In addition, the WF-1000XM4 has DSEE Extreme, an algorithm that basically fills out data gaps in your lossy music using artificial intelligence.

While the mic is not the main strength of the Sony WF-1000XM4, it still does a reasonably good job. Take a listen and tell us what you think.

The 1MORE Dual Driver ANC Pro is a versatile headset

1MORE’s noise canceling earbuds include plenty of premium features for a reasonable price. The earbuds have an IPX5 rating, support LDAC and AAC, and can be used as a wired headset in a pinch. That’s right, you can connect a cable to the neckband and then into your phone.

The magnetic earbud housings perfectly manage the cables when you’re not actively using the headset. The microphone quality, while not the best, is very good and can certainly get you by on a personal or professional phone call. If you’re a commuter who wants a solid pair of ANC earbuds, but isn’t ready to jump ship to noise canceling true wireless products, the 1MORE Dual Driver ANC Pro is a fine option for you.

Is the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds worth buying?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

The Bose QC Earbuds support mono listening but it’s limited to the right earbud, which isn’t useful for some folks.

Bose was one of the earliest manufacturers to really pin down ANC, so it’s no surprise the QuietComfort Earbuds does the job well. It’s effective at using ANC to block out noise across the spectrum. The default frequency response should please most listeners, but the companion app now has some EQ options to add some flexibility.

It shares the same IPX4 rating as the Bose Sport Earbuds, which gives it some versatility alongside with a sidetone for your phone calls. The codec suite is minimal at AAC and SBC, but for iPhone users AAC is about the best you can use anyhow. The downsides include the large case and the buds are pretty big too. It also goes for about $100 USD more than the Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless, which isn’t chump change.

Does the Sennheiser MOMENTUM 3 True Wireless have good noise canceling?

While Sennheiser retains the chunky shape of the previous MOMENTUM iteration, the latest now has stabilizers.

Yes, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM 3 True Wireless has excellent ANC capabilities. The combined ANC and isolation competes favorably with the Sony WF-1000XM4, reducing 30dB of external noise at 100Hz. That’s more than the WF-1000XM4. The Sennheiser MOMENTUM 3 True Wireless demands a high price, but lacks surround sound found on the AirPods Pro and WF-1000XM4. Battery life lasts 5 hours and 33 minutes, which is decent. To the credit of Sennheiser, the MOMENTUM 3 True Wireless uses aptX Adaptive, aptX, AAC, and SBC so you can watch videos without losing sync.

The MOMENTUM 3 True Wireless under-emphasizes high frequencies, but otherwise pleasantly follows our target curve through the mids and bass. Included in the app is an equalizer too. Fit is subjective, but the added wings help secure your in-ear fit, though Sennheiser could have included a few more ear tips. Overall, it’s a very competent set of ANC earbuds.

Can you use the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro with any phone?

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro takes the best features from all of the previous Galaxy Buds generations.

The current flagship Samsung earphones rank as some of the best noise canceling true wireless earbuds currently available. Noise canceling is very good, especially when it comes to midrange frequency reduction, which is important for commuting. The buds expertly cut through droning sounds like the vibrations from a subway car, but can’t quite combat incidental noise like clanging pots and pans.

AKG tuned the earbuds to sound superb: the frequency response closely follows our house curve with slightly amplified bass and low-midrange notes. If you don’t like how it sounds, you can always cycle through the handful of EQ profiles within the Galaxy Wearable app, so long as you have an Android device. It has some of the best waterproofing of any earbuds with a IPX7 rating.

The best ANC earbuds: Notable mentions

Shure takes a different approach by blocking out noise the old fashion way with good isolation.

  • Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen): Amazon debuted its proprietary noise canceling with these earbuds, and it does a great job of blocking out droning sounds. In fact, the ANC here is better than the Sony WF-1000XM3 and Apple AirPods Pro. Of course, there are some concessions like microphone and sound quality, but if ANC and Alexa support are your top priorities, the Echo Buds will serve you well.
  • Denon AH-C830NCW: The Denon AH-C830NCW technically has better active noise canceling than the Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless, and you get the same IPX4 rating. However, it isn’t listed as a top five pick because you don’t get volume controls and there’s a noticeable degree of lag on Android since it only supports SBC and AAC.
  • Jabra Elite 4 Active: At $120 USD Jabra stuffs the buds with ANC, Bluetooth 5.2, Google Fast Pair, and a solid IP57 rating. You lose some premium surround sound features found in pricier options, but not everyone needs that.
  • Jabra Elite 85t: These earphones feature very good noise canceling, and microphone quality. You can create a custom EQ profile within the mobile app if you aren’t happy with the bassy default sound. With the debut of Jabra’s other Elite series earphones like the Elite 7 Active and Elite 7 Pro, the Elite 85t has dropped in price.
  • Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless: At the midpoint between budget and premium, Sennheiser strikes a balance of good sound, effective ANC, and aptX, AAC, and SBC codecs.
  • Shure AONIC Free: Here’s a novel option, noise canceling without active noise canceling. The AONIC Free features such good isolation you don’t even need to fuss with ANC settings. It helps that the buds sound great and have a useful companion app with a comprehensive equalizer. If you’re looking for a wired option the Shure SE215 uses the same buds to isolate your ears.
  • Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC: Razer’s USB-C headset is at the top of its very small class. If your smartphone is without a headphone jack, and you want wired earbuds without the dongle, get these. If you’re open to checking out true wireless options, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro may be more up your alley.
  • Samsung Galaxy Buds 2: Though missing some of the more premium features of the Galaxy Buds Pro, this set features basically the same ANC as the flagship for a few bucks less.

Hold up! Something’s different:

Some of our picks’ frequency response and isolation charts were measured with our old testing system. We have since purchased a Bruel & Kjaer 5128 test fixture (and the appropriate support equipment) to update our testing and data collection. It will take a while to update our backlog of old test results, but we will update this review (and many others!) once we’re able with improved sound quality measurements and ANC performance plots. These will be made obvious with our new chart aesthetic (black background instead of white).

Thank you for bearing with us, and we hope to see you again once we’ve sorted everything out.

What you should know about the best noise canceling earbuds

In order to block out the most noise, you need to get a good fit (as seen with the JBL Reflect Flow Pro).

Hearing loss is a pervasive issue, and noise canceling technology can help prevent it: it combats the permeation of external noise by way of destructive interference. Anyone who’s been on a subway platform while listening to music knows that as the train comes to a halt to pick up riders, it becomes nearly impossible to hear your music. That’s because our brains only have so much bandwidth to process simultaneous stimuli; our prehistoric brains are programmed for survival.

Back in the prehistoric days, it was important to register loud noises over all else because they were likely threats (e.g., a prowling leopard). Now, this prioritization of loud sounds is less needed since we don’t typically have run-ins with wild creatures ready to pounce on us. Instead, it impedes music playback in the form of auditory masking: a loud sound makes it difficult to perceive a quieter one. We often reach for the volume rocker to increase music loudness as a way of combating loud external noises, but active noise canceling earbuds do much of the heavy lifting, making us less compelled to put our hearing at risk.

Constructive and Destructive Interference Sound waves of equal amplitude, offset at 1/2 wavelengths result in compression waves with an amplitude of 0—canceling out the sound.

We have a full breakdown of how noise canceling technology works, but the shortened version is that it uses destructive interference. Each sound has its own waveform, and the microphones in ANC headsets record your surroundings and emit an inverted waveform to combat ambient noise.

In a perfect world, it would be as simple and neat as 1-1=0. However, the technology isn’t there yet and may never be. Environmental noise still permeates the barrier created by noise canceling headphones. Generally speaking, though, the technology has advanced quite a bit: Apple, Bose, and Sony have impeccable performers.

This technology is complicated, and to get an effective pair of headphones or earbuds with ANC, you should expect to pay around $150. This is pricy but has proven well worth the investment for daily commuters and readers with loud neighbors.


How do you wear earbuds?

Each set of earbuds has a slightly different way you should wear them, but for the most part, you just need to make sure the ear tips fit well into your ear canal entrances. This means you should take the time to experiment with each ear tip size, and mix and match if you have to. Shake your head around a bit and take note of your comfort level. Usually one of the sizes works but on the off chance that they don’t, you may want to invest in third-party ear tips.

Just like standard earbuds, noise canceling earbuds greatly benefit from a proper seal. No matter how good the ANC tech inside the earbud is, if the nozzles aren’t physically blocking external noise out, auditory masking will affect your ability to hear your music.

How we choose the best noise canceling earbuds

When it comes to noise canceling earbuds, we performed our due diligence by researching the ones we’ve yet to get our hands-on. Bose, recognized as the brand to get when looking for noise canceling headphones, is awarded as our top contender. However, we made sure to include other, less ubiquitous options that will still suit a wide array of listener profiles. While the Bose QuietComfort 20 still reigns as our pick for the best noise canceling earbuds, you’re bound to enjoy any of the above.

Frequently asked questions about noise canceling earbuds

It is unlikely that they will block out dog barking. It depends on two things mainly: how sporadic the barking is, and what frequency range the barking is in that you’re hearing is. If it’s sporadic, like one bark every now and then, it probably won’t work. Because dogs bark in a fairly wide frequency range, it’s hard to know how effective any ANC is with the specific dog(s) you’re hoping to block out.

You’re better off looking for very good passive sound isolation, like a good fitting closed-back headphone or really snug earbuds without vents. Look into something like the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT2 or Shure AONIC Free.


We recommend the Bose Sleepbuds: these aren’t designed to play music, and are only compatible with the Bose Sleep app. You can use said app to select a number of ambient recordings to help you catch some Z’s. It’s a miniature white noise machine that won’t keep your partner awake.


For the most optimized experience, get the Apple AirPods Pro; these earbuds use Apple’s h2 chip which allows for hands-free access to Siri, improves power efficiency, and enables seamless device switching with iOS and macOS products. The h2 chip is compatible with macOS 10. 14.4 or later and iOS 12.2 or later. The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 has okay ANC with very good sound. It’s just harder to justify for the price, especially when you can just get the CX Plus True Wireless instead.


Both Bose and Sony make great noise canceling earbuds. If you’re already invested in the Bose ecosystem, you may find yourself more at home with Bose’s ANC earbuds. Bose has made a name for itself when it comes to noise cancellation and comfort, be it with its earbud or headphone audio solutions. Sony’s noise canceling earbuds are no slouch, and it has a tight grip on the noise canceling true wireless market.


5 Best Wired Noise-Canceling Earbuds

Editor’s Note: This post has been updated with new picks for 2017.

The market for active noise-canceling (ANC) headphones is saturated with over-ear headphones, like Bose’s Q25’s and the Sony’s MDR-1A’s. It’s not surprising, as these headphones can block out sound both passively (by physically preventing sound from reaching the ear) and actively (using a built-in microphone to electronically create a counter-signal). But they aren’t for everyone. With their weighty (albeit cushioned) design, they can crush ears, making them impossible to wear for long periods.

For those seeking ANC headphones but don’t find over-ears comfortable, there is a growing collection of great in-ear ANC headphones. It’s a decidedly niche market; audio titans like Plantronics and Bowers & Wilkins don’t even make them. Sony makes a pair (the MDR-EX750NA), but they’re not sold in the States. However difficult they are to find, there are great in-ear ANC headphones available for consumers; we’ve rounded up a few of the best, each at a different price point, so that you can listen to whatever you want in peace, and on your own budget.

Bose QuietControl 30

Bose’s QuietControl 30s promise to be the most advanced pair of in-ear ANC headphones ever. Why? They offer controllable noise cancellation, allowing listeners to adjust the amount of ambient sound they hear. It has the same ANC abilities as the QC20s, only these levels can be lowered to hear more of your surroundings. Adjusting this is as simple as changing the volume — just scroll on your device or hit the button on the headphone’s in-line remote — and if the battery dies, or if you shut off the ANC, you can still listen to music.

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23

The ANC23 noise-canceling in-ear headphones aren’t exactly new. They’ve been around since 2012. But as far as bang for your buck, there’s no better pair. The earpieces, which are interchangeable and come in three sizes (small, medium and large), contain miniature microphones that are able to reduce ambient noise by up to 90 percent. They run on a single AAA battery, but if that dies, the headphones still work in a passive mode.

Buy Now: $49

Phiaton BT 220 NC

The BT 220 NCs by Phiaton cancel out 95 percent of outside noise, but that’s just one line item on the stat sheet. They come with Bluetooth 4.0 (featuring aptX as well), so you can leave your smartphone or hi-fi player in your backpack while you travel, and they’re also decked out with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, so you can simply touch a smartphone to the headphones’ dongle, and boom, you’re connected. And for the final bonus, the headphones can connect to two Bluetooth-enabled devices at the same time.

Buy Now: $159

AKG K391NC

AKG’s in-ear noise-canceling headphones boast powerful, high-quality audio in a simple and practical design. When active, the bass presence in these K391NCs is as good as any on this list. In addition, the headphones have a one-button remote that can switch tracks and answer calls. They also run on a rechargeable battery that can handle 35 hours of listening time on one charge.

Buy Now: $112

B&O Play h4 ANC Headphones

These headphones run on a single electrodynamic 10.8mm driver that produces clear, well-balanced audio (unlike the overpowering bass in Beats by Dre). They’re powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery that, when turned on, gives the headphones 20 hours of ANC play time. Also, the earbuds have memory-foam tips, so even when the ANC is off, the h4s are able to passively block out outside sound very well.

Buy Now: $249

Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones

The ANC on these headphones is superb. Simply switch them on and you’ll have 16 hours of basically no outside noise. The headphones are equipped with Bose’s proprietary StayHear+ ear tips, which, along with being comfortable, help passively block out ambient noise. If you’re willing to match their $300 price tag, these are probably the best in-ear noise-canceling headphones on the market.

What is ANC and how does noise reduction work?

How the Active Noise Canceling function works in

headphones

ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) – Active Noise Cancellation of the headphones works on the principle of noise inversion, which allows you to drown out the surrounding environment. In simple words, the noise is read by a microphone and the noise wave is mirrored (inverted) into the speakers in order to level it. In the best headphones with active noise cancellation, a high-quality microphone is always built in, and sometimes even 2 or 4 that pick up noise and invert it.

The main disadvantage of noise canceling headphones

The main disadvantage of noise canceling headphones is the personal intolerance of . 10% of people may experience discomfort when using active noise cancellation: headache, dizziness. Reasons: If you get seasick, you definitely won’t be able to use noise canceling headphones properly.
