4. AKG N60NC Wireless

The AKG N60NC Wireless are packed with numerous functionality, with competitive battery life and robust performance. Compared to the three headphones above, these headphones are much more affordable. However, the sound quality and noise cancellation are almost on par with the much more premium headphones on this list.
