TaoTronics (and other cheap headphones)
« on: August 20, 2019, 10:19:45 AM »
Anyone have any experience with this brand or similar?

I understand the sound quality is probably pretty bad. But I'm looking for good wireless noise cancelling headphones to have quiet background music while at work. I'm not too worried about getting the best sound quality. More interested in comfort and decent noise cancellation.

Yeah I'm tempted to try them. I'll post a review if I do.

I have used the Bose and Sennheiser versions extensively and both cancel noise equally.

The Bose noise cancelling bluetooth headphones are $450 (on sale right now for $400!). I'm kicking myself because the Senheisers were almost half price on prime day and I didn't buy them.... now I can't imaging paying full price when I could have had them for half.

The Senn PXC500 can be had on sale or refurb regularly at over half off.  Check ebay.  I prefer them over Bose due to build quality, option package, and replaceable pads and batteries.  Been using a set at work for 3 years and a set at home for Laura for ~ a year.
