Amazon has the Audio Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint noise-cancelling headphones down to $129. This is the first time since 2016 these headphones have dropped below $170. Despite being around since 2012, they have never dropped this low on Amazon ever.

At one point in time these headphones were the cream of the crop for noise-cancelling. In 2012, CNET gave the ATH-ANC9 4.5 stars out of 5. They said these headphones are "a great-sounding pair of noise-cancelling headphones" and added "The ANC9s provide a comfortable fit, even for long stretches of time. Audio Technica uses memory foam in the cups and along the headband."

With the ANC9s you're getting active noise-cancelling as good as anything else, even the Bose QuietComfort 25s, but at a much cheaper price.

The biggest negative against these headphones is the active noise-cancelling does not have a rechargeable battery, so you'll need to buy something like these AmazonBasics AAA rechargeable batteries to keep them powered.
