Best for: Gaming, music connoisseurs, meetings

Are you having difficulty concentrating while you work from home? A good noise-cancelling headphone may just do the trick. Featuring voice, touch, and fingertip controls with as many as 13 levels of active noise cancellation, the Surface Headphones 2 is a gem. Dial-up the noise-cancelling function when you need to be super focused at a presentation or while rushing a project, or dial it down a notch when you wish to be more aware of your environment. The gadget allows for pairing with two devices simultaneously to enable you to work seamlessly. Psst, we hear it pairs with Macs too with multipoint support.

Rotatable at 180 degrees, you get to control your music and sound with a twist or tap of the ear cups. Better still, get hands-free assistance using your voice control. Pause your music when you take off your headphones and resume automatically when you put it back on. Talk about effortless control.

Not only does its classy finish snub fingerprints, a five-minute charge brings you almost an hour of unbridled usage. Sounds like a winner to me!

Available in Matt Black or Light Grey.
