I have a problem. It’s an incredibly first-world problem, because it’s one where no amount of gear is ever “enough”. Literally the week after I ordered my brand new Audio Technica ATH-M40X, I was already scouring the internet for a brand new pair of wireless headphones with active noise cancellation (ANC).
And it’s not like I’m some big audiophile. My ears are decidedly plebian in the sense that I know what I like and I know what I don’t — there isn’t really a super deep spectrum. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop me from wanting to get the best ones there are.
After weeks of reading, listening and researching, I managed to narrow down the list to a few prime candidates. Sony’s original MDR-1000X headphones were not at the top of the list. Then, everything changed when I got a hold of the WH-1000XM2.

Recently, I’ve been obsessed with wireless noise-cancelling headphones. More specifically, I’ve been obsessed with Bose‘s QuietComfort 35 headphones with active noise cancellation. They’re comfortable, light, sound great, and look so dapper. But, one could make the case that, Sony has the better pair of ANC cans with the MDR-1000X and its successor, the WH-1000XM2.
Sony’s headphones are definitely the better value proposition and they’re a lot more high-tech but I’ve always preferred the QC35’s fit. Now, though, there’s a second contender and it’s JBL’s Everest Elite 750 NC headphones.

Xiaomi has produced a couple of impressive value for money earphones that sound better than the ones that come with your phone. With several smartphones going jack-less including Xiaomi’s very own Mi 6 flagship, the Chinese brand has finally introduced its first ever USB Type-C in-ear headphones.
Not only it supports the new interface, Xiaomi has also added active noise cancellation for a better music experience.
Apple ads are almost always pretty and straight to the point. This one is no exception, except that the feature that this latest iPhone 5 ad is selling is neither unique nor groundbreaking. Still, it’s a nice ad.
Along with the noise cancellation ad, Apple also released another iPhone 5 ad in conjunction with the Thanksgiving holiday. The ad highlights the useful Photo Stream feature on the iPhone 5. It’s a brilliantly simple ad and you can view it right after the jump.
