15 Noise Canceling Headphones to Battle Distractions of ADHD

Being able to mitigate distractions is important. Being able to block them out all together with some good music and binaural beats and getting deep into flow. These are some of the best noise cancelling headphones at every price point. Yes, the $15 dollar ones you got are great, until you realize they aren’t. That being said, there are tons of really affordable options.

However, I want to be clear that there is a lot of options out there, these are just the ones I have been diving into and looking at myself. I have only got to try a few of these myself.

As always, all the links are Affiliate based, so if you decide to buy them, you’re helping me out!

Let’s get to it.

Under $100:

Anker Soundcore Q20

My recommendation for under $100. Really quality sound, quality build, and on sale often for under $50.

  1. Anker Soundcore Life Q20: These headphones offer decent noise cancellation and a comfortable fit at an affordable price.
  2. TaoTronics SoundSurge 60: Known for their budget-friendly options, TaoTronics provides effective noise cancellation in the SoundSurge 60 model. Hard to find unfortunately.
  3. Mpow H5: The Mpow H5 headphones provide good noise isolation and a comfortable design at an affordable price point.
  4. Sony WH-CH720N: Sony is known for its high-quality audio products, and the WH-CH720N offers noise cancellation at a reasonable price. Price may be over $100 at the time of reading, at the time of writing, they were on sale for $98.99.
  5. MOVSSOU E7: The Movssou E7 is a popular budget option with active noise cancellation and a comfortable over-ear design. They are definitely the least expensive in the bunch, but not the best rated.

Under $300:

My overall TOP recommendation. You generally can find these hovering around the $100 mark. I put them up in this mid tier category because they are hands down the best for any budget without spending a mortgage payment on a set of headphones. While the Sony WH-1000xM4s are an “Industry Standard” for best in show across the board… these come in second for a third of the price.

  1. Sennheiser HD 450BT: Sennheiser is recognized for its audio quality, and the HD 450BT provides excellent sound along with effective noise cancellation.
  2. JBL Free X: JBL offers a range of headphones, and the Free X provides good noise isolation along with wireless capabilities.
  3. Bose QuietComfort 45: Although slightly above $300, these are often discounted. The QuietComfort 45 is known for its superb noise cancellation and comfort.
  4. Beats Studio Pro: Beats by Dre headphones, like the Studio Pro, offer a stylish design along with active noise cancellation.
  5. AKG N60NC Wireless: AKG, a brand under Samsung, provides the N60NC Wireless, which is known for its compact design and effective noise cancellation.

No Budget Limit:

  1. Sony WH-1000XM4: Considered one of the best in the market, the WH-1000XM4 offers exceptional noise cancellation, premium sound quality, and various smart features.
  2. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700: These headphones from Bose feature a sleek design, excellent noise cancellation, and a comfortable fit.
  3. Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless: Known for their audio quality, the Momentum 3 Wireless headphones from Sennheiser combine style with effective noise cancellation.
  4. Shure AONIC 5 In Ear: Shure is recognized for its audio equipment, and the AONIC 5’s offers top-notch sound and noise cancellation.
  5. Bowers & Wilkins PX7: B&W’s PX7 headphones provide high-quality audio and effective noise cancellation, along with a premium design.
