You’d be for­given for think­ing that de­cent noise can­cel­la­tion is go­ing to cost up­wards of $300, but th­ese Pi­o­neer ear­buds crush that the­ory. They don’t make any grand claims (“noise can­cel­la­tion of up to 90 per cent”) but for the price, they per­form very well, as­sisted by the iso­lat­ing ef­fects of in-ear buds. Pow­ered by a sin­gle AAA bat­tery last­ing up to 120 hours, they also have fea­tures you’d as­so­ci­ate with more up­mar­ket mod­els – by­pass (pas­sive mode) and talk-through (to let you hear ex­ter­nal noise), for ex­am­ple.

PROS Light, por­ta­ble, per­fect for the gym or the street; great bat­tery life

CONS Noise re­duc­tion less than per­fect, slightly bass-heavy
