Recommendation for noise cancelling headphones?

Hey
I am looking for good noise-cancelling headphones. I get distracted so easily while studying :/
Anyone know of good ones? I would prefer the earbud type and cant spend more than $50 Don't care if they are bluetooth or not.
Thanks in advance

no such thing... sorry.

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...

try a pair of KZ( I like the ed16) in ears with comply foam tips

noise isolating is a better phrase than cancelling for what youre looking for, active noise cancelling is digital signal processing and more effective on things like engine noise

These are 50 dollars on Amazon. They work pretty well as noise cancelling headphones. I use them to watch on my iPad and also when cutting the grass. They will get the job done.

Just an afterthought. I believe that there is some recent research that shows quiet is the best support for studying. Many people, including me, listen to music when studying and find it helpful and relaxing. The research report I read (still looking for it) says students who study in silence do better than when they listen to music.

That being the case, since you want silence I have a couple of other categories to suggest that you think about. The first is throw away earplugs like you can buy in the drugstore. People use them to sleep among other things. They are cheap and effective. No wires, no batteries. Very compact and lightweight.

The second is shooter's ear protection. Passive earmuffs cost $15-50 and provide the best sound isolation of any headphone. This link discusses several options.

When I shoot I wear earplugs and protectors and can hear absolutely nothing including "cease fire".

I believe OP haven't visited AVS ever since.

I had some luck with Sennheiser Hd 201, but these are over the ear ones.
Heard that Pc 300 are good, though I haven't tried them in person.

In-line volume control and noise shield sounds not bad.

For a $50 budget, Xiaomi Mi earbuds might be an options as well.
