Today only, these Anker noise-cancelling headphones are just $56: 'Better than AirPod Pros'

Noise-cancelling wireless headphones can make the world a more pleasant place. (We're looking at you, crying baby three rows ahead in the airplane!) While you can pick up some luxurious ones from Bose, you don't have to shell out hundreds to get incredible audio quality, long battery life and a sleek, ergonomic design. Amazon shoppers rave about Anker Soundcore Life Q30 Hybrid Wireless Headphones, and they are now down to just $56, but only for today. And if these aren't what you're looking for, check out the wider Anker sale going on with savings of up to 36%.

Our kind of cancel culture: These little babies can reduce external sound by up to 95%, dropping you into a world of blissful silence. Available in black, blue and pink.

Sounds great, looks great

People can’t get enough of these cans — they've earned a five-star rating from more than 17,000 verified reviewers! Shoppers describe the immersive listening experience as “so clean and crisp” while the bass is “deep and punchy.”

Some fans even say they are as good as high-end competitors: "I originally had my AirPod Pros which sound great, but I have to charge them every hour and a half to two hours... I got fed up, and wanted something I could use in between the charges. I went for these headphones, but after putting them on, testing out the noise cancellation, and their sound… I will probably be using these instead of my AirPods completely."

"I bought these headphones as an over-the-ear option. They are amazing, I have a very active upstairs neighbor and work from home and find it hard to concentrate with a lot of noise. These headphones were exactly what I needed and the noise cancellation is fantastic. I also love the multi-pairing with two devices. I have also been able to pair them with my TV, which has Bluetooth capabilities. For the price point, these headphones are the best you can get. They far surpass the noise-cancellation abilities of my AirPod Pros," said another customer.

We have to say that these wireless headphones also look fantastic. They’re sleek, but not overly designed; sharp, yet understated. Their matte black finish just seals the deal.

Long-lasting battery life

With up to 40 hours of playback, you can go all day (and then some) without being connected to an outlet. And if you need quick juice in a pinch, just plug them in for five minutes to get up to four hours of listening pleasure.

"The battery life is AMAZING. I literally can go up to TWO WEEKS without charging them," one reviewer said.

"The battery life is top of class. 40 hours is not an exaggeration, slightly less with noise cancelling turned on. Not surprising since the headphones come from Soundcore, an Anker brand, known for their batteries and chargers. But nonetheless, this makes them an EXCELLENT at-home wireless headphone. They charge with USB-C, which is nice for compatibility with different chargers you might have lying around. They also charge quite quickly to full, which is great if you forget they're dead and need to give them a quick jolt,” adds another five-star reviewer.

Make no mistake about them: These are the crème de la crème of wallet-friendly wireless headphones. Grab 'em on sale!

40 hours of battery life and a fully adjustable EQ make these some of the best sound-cancelling headphones for the money.
