What Is The Best Noise Cancelling Headphones?

I've always had a passion for music. I am what you would call tone-deaf, as I cannot carry a tune. And I don't have the skills to play a musical instrument; though I can play some beats on a snare drum and, once upon a time, I could play "Silent Night" on a keyboard. I guess you can call me more of a music lover than anything else.

As a kid, I would listen to Walkman until the batteries died. During my teenage years, I jammed to a portable CD player and a loud stereo that annoyed my parents. Now, nearing the big 40, I mostly listen to digital music on my laptop, MP3 player, and, on occasionally, my cell phone.

Firebird Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones Review

It should be no secret to my blog readers that I love listening to music as it is a way that I can relax when I'm stressed. Ever since I got my new cell phone on my birthday (back in September), I've put most of the MP3 songs from my laptop to the new cell. Since the phone has a Bluetooth compatibility on it, I got a pair of Bluetooth headphones for it, but I had problems with the right earbud as it kept slipping out of my ear, despite the fact that I switched to a smaller earplug.

That being said, I was excited to try out the Firebird Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones by Talon, which are technically workout earbuds. The headphones retail for $99.99, but can currently be purchased on for $49.99.

The headphones are compatible with most iOS & Android devices. The Bluetooth operating range can reach up to 10m (33 ft) with talk time up to 4-6 hours. Standby time lasts up to 150 hours. It comes with a micro USB charging port, which takes 1.5 hours to charge. It can be paired with devices simultaneously, though I haven't tested this part of it out yet.

Snug Plug n Play Headphones Review

I've been a music lover since I was a young kid, so over the years I've been through dozens of different style of head phones. I've used them to listen to music on my walkmans (remember those?), portable CD players, MP3 players, stereos and now on my laptop.

Headphones aren't exactly cheap anymore with some as high as $200 or more, which don't last any longer than a $10 pair. I've already been through two pairs this year. A pair of stereo headphones quit after a few months of use and I accidentally vacuumed over of earbuds.

That being said, I was excited when I was picked to review the Snug Plug n Play Headphones, which are technically attended for kids, but are suitable for just about any age. The headphones come in six different colors (blue, red, purple, black, green and pink) and can currently be bought on Amazon for $11.46.

FSL Xylem Review

While I'm sure by now that all my blog readers know that I'm a big book worm, but some of you may not know that I'm also a big music lover. For me, music is way to forget all my problems and just relax. I went through countless number of AA batteries listening to my Walkman and later a portable CD player throughout my teen years in the 90s. And of course I went through many different headphones.

Now as an adult, I continue to listen to to music daily. Even as I'm writing this, I'm listening to a Halestorm album on my laptop. While I no longer have a Walkman, I do listen to music on a MP3 player, my cell phone and on my stereo.

A weeks ago, I was sent a nifty pair of FSL Xylem headphones to review. These earbuds have a cool wooden look to them. It has a microphone and a small one-button remote, which gives you full control over your music tracks and your phone calls with just one click. It features a 3.5mm socket, so it's compatible with most smartphones, tablets, iPods, MP3 players and laptops, as well as a small storage bag.

Bedphones Sleep Headphones Review

As far back as I can remember, I have always been a night owl. This has never really bothered me, as I do my best writing and blogging late at night, but after I finish my work there is nothing else to do. Yes, I could watch television, but there isn't much on after midnight except for repeats of reality shows. Therefore I try to go to sleep, but it isn't an easy feat and I normally have to listen to some music to help me doze off to beddy bye.

I'm a little bit behind on the current technology, so I don't own a MP3 Player or and iPod, instead I listen to music on my portable CD player at night. The problem is that I can't exactly lay down and listen to music because of my bulky stereo headphones. I have tried the smaller earphones, but they are uncomfortable too.

Luckily for me there is a new headphones that are meant to be worn when you are in bed. Is is called the Bedphones Sleep Headphones and it retails at $54.95. It is $5 higher if you want an incline microphone with remote, but it can be purchased on for $39.95. At 1/4 inch thick, these Sleep Headphones are the thinnest headphones in the world. They are designed to lie flat, so this way they won't disturb your sleep while wearing them. It comes with a neat black case and a sleep mask.
