Best noise-canceling headphones deals

The great thing about noise-canceling headphones is that they usually do all the other things right, too, as far as sound quality and comfort and things like that go. The active noise-canceling tech is just icing on the cake and perfect for anyone who needs to block out ambiant noise. The con for these headphones is that they are usually larger than your average headphones. While they often come with a carrying case for portability, they might not be as convenient as some other options.
