    You're About To Be A Lot More Productive Thanks To These $99 Noise-Cancelling Headphones

    No, you don't have to drop $300+ for Bose QuietComforts to get premium ANC.

    If you, like me, get chills thinking about being forced to listen to someone's conversation about bitcoin on the subway or can be easily distracted by the sound of a coworker's raucous laughter when on deadline, it might be time to arm yourself with some active noise-cancelling (ANC) headphones — specifically, a pair of Anker's game-changing budget cans, the Soundcore Spaces.

    At just under $100, the Soundcore Spaces prove you don't have to drop an outrageous amount of cash to get quality ANC.

    According to Anker, these headphones block out up to 96% of high-frequency sounds (like human voices) and 93% of low-frequency noise (think: a subway rumbling underneath you or the murmur of an AC unit).

    Audiophiles may wax poetic about the Bose QuietComfort 35 II (our current $$$ pick on BuzzFeed Reviews for best wireless headphones), but if you’re like most people — a casual and thrifty music listener — you’d be hard-pressed to find a pair of ANC headphones under $100 that checks as many boxes as these do.

    The bottom line is this: Anker’s Soundcore Space headphones would make excellent commuter headphones, given their ease of wear, and are perfect for the casual listener.

    Still need more proof that the Soundcore Space is worth your $100? Let's check in with what Amazon reviewers have to say.

    Get them from Amazon for $99.
