Noise canceling headphones counteract the distracting buzzes and hums of loud environments like airplanes, trains and offices, making them a great choice for commuters and work. Since they sealed designs, they not only keep noise out, they also keep the sound they make from escaping—which is key to not disturbing those around you. The AKG N60 NC headphones are an on-ear wired option from a top brand. The N60 NC is now on sale for only $59.95 – a 76% discount off MSRP.
Quality noise canceling headphones can cost hundreds of dollars. Ordinarily, if your budget is $60, you are limited to shopping among unheard-of brands on Amazon. Whereas with AKG you get headphones designed by one of the top names in the business.
The N60 NC Is a full-featured headphone, but it is NOT wireless. Rather, it is a corded headphone that offers noise cancelling. So if you were looking for a Bluetooth solution, look elsewhere. But if you like corded headphones for the added quality they offer, check these AKG out. Why pay for Bluetooth if you are not going to use it?
You can get up to 30 hours of battery life out of a charge (it features USB charging). The AKG N60 NC will still play music—even if you deplete the battery. You just give up the noise cancelling.
