The best noise-canceling true wireless earbuds for 2020

Looking for a set of true-wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation? There are more options than just Apple's AirPods

Curated via Twitter from CNET News’s twitter account….

The 1More True Wireless ANC earbuds fit pretty comfortably and securely in my ears, so I was able to get a tight seal, which is crucial for sound quality and noise canceling.

These wireless headphones come with a slightly smaller, more comfortable design, active noise cancellation rivaling that of the AirPods Pro, improved battery life (up to 7 hours versus the originals’ 4) and better noise reduction and ambient noise blocking during calls.

They feature greatly increased battery life (10 hours versus 3. 5 hours), Bluetooth 5. 0 and active noise cancellation with two microphones on each ‘bud, though the noise isolation is fairly light, not as strong as the Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds’ noise-isolating feature.

The Mpow X3 earbuds play loud and sound shockingly good for their low price of $60, with good clarity, powerful bass and active noise canceling that’s fairly effective.

Read our Amazon Echo Buds review. 1More made a name for itself with its wired earbuds, the Triple Drivers, which sound great and were a good value when wired headphones were still a thing.

The Technics EAH-AZ70W earbuds’ list price of $250 puts them squarely up against Apple’s AirPods Pro ($250), Sony’s WF-1000XM3 ($230) and Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 ($300).

While this pair isn’t cheap, as far as audio quality, they’re the best noise-canceling wireless earbuds at this price, matching and perhaps even exceeding the quality and performance of pricier competitors from Sennheiser, Beats, Master & Dynamic and Bang & Olufsen.

It’s missing Sony’s QN1e processor, but there’s still a lot to like about it, including very good sound, solid noise cancellation and good call quality.

Even if they don’t sound as magical as you’d hope a $249 model would, the AirPods Pro still manages to be a great pair of true wireless noise-canceling earphones.

Most importantly, though, the Momentum True Wireless 2 have the same stellar sound — for true wireless earbuds, anyway — clearly superior in sound quality to the AirPods Pro.

I gave 1More’s Stylish True Wireless earbuds, which list for $100 but were selling for $70 to $80 during the 2019 holidays, high marks for their sound at their price.

To that end, we’ve rounded up the best true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation, all of which I’ve personally used.

Call quality is good — they have a sidetone feature that lets you hear your voice in the ‘buds — but I’ve used other models with better noise reduction during calls.

They also have a feature that those competitors don’t have: active noise-canceling headphone technology to reduce ambient noise in your ear as you rock out on your devices.

Amazon doesn’t call the Bose noise reduction feature in its Echo Buds "active noise canceling".

Active noise cancellation is the height of headphone technology.  ANC headphones work by essentially producing a mirror image sound wave in your ear to electronically counteract (or "cancel out") external noise.
