Of all the noise-cancelling headphones Strategist contributor and former tech columnist David Pogue has tried (and he’s tried a lot), he calls this Sony pair “the best I’ve ever owned.” After being a Bose devotee for a decade, he picked these up based on a friend’s recommendation and was surprised to discover they sound better, have a longer battery life, and charge quicker. There are also plenty of nifty features like a trackpad on the right earpiece to adjust volume or change tracks. Normally $350, today they’re 29 percent off on Amazon — a discount of just over $100. While they’re perfect for long flights and listening to music, we suspect right now they might be just what you need to cut down on distractions while working from home.
