Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones: 7 of the best right now


Key features:

  • On-ear design
  • Active noise-cancelling
  • Passive listening mode

The Sennheiser PXC 550 certainly don’t come cheap, but for the money these are feature-packed cans fitting of Sennheiser’s reputation. The active noise-cancellation can be adjusted based on your environment, too. It’s a nice change from the binary on-or-off choice found on many ANC headphones. There’s also a number of digital sound processing (DSP) modes for when watching movies. The outside of one of the earcups is also a capacitive touchpad to provide intuitive media controls and these headphones can fold up for easy transportation.

At time of review the Sennheiser PXC 550 were available for £330.
