When you're trying to listen to music and watch your favourite films in public (or even at home in your room), it can be difficult to drown out the noise around you.
Sometimes, even when you're wearing headphones it doesn't block out the noise. If you live in a particularly noisy house or if you just want to block everything out for a while, noise cancelling headphones could be the answer.
There are many different types available - some are much better than others.
Below you'll find our top 5 picks for the best headphones on the market.
Sony Prestige MDR-1R noise cancellation headphones
If money isn't a problem, the Sony noise cancelling headphones are definitely worth investing in. They go over the head and completely cover your ears. As well as being great for laptops, they will also fit perfectly into mobile phones and iPhones as well as iPods. They also feature a remote and microphone so you can even use them for gaming.
The HD driver unit provides deep bass and balanced sound is delivered perfectly thanks to 40mm liquid crystal polymer film diaphragm.
Available for around £260, these aren't the cheapest headphones out there but they're certainly some of the best.
Sony MDRNC8B Noise Cancelling Headphones
If you're on a budget and you really can't afford to be spending hundreds of pounds on a pair of headphones, these may just be what you need. They are mainly suitable for DJ use and are foldable, making them easy to carry around with you.
These Sony headphones have 30mm dome drivers which helps to deliver really dynamic sound.
These are an absolute bargain and they manage to block out around 87% of sound around you for just £34.99.
Beats by DR DRE Studio Noise Cancelling Headphones
If it's style you're looking for the 'Beats by DR DRE' range are the ideal choice. The range boasts multiple lively colours including green, red and blue. A pair will set you back just under £200. They feature a microphone and remote control, while premium grade sound is delivered via a 3.5mm plug.
This is quite unusual as most studio grade quality headphones aren't compatible with iPhones or iPods.
Monster Inspiration Noise Cancelling Headphones
The Monster Inspiration headphones are stylish, portable and comfortable to wear. They deliver exciting sound no matter where you go.
One of the main features of these headphones is the fact they have interchangeable bands so different coloured bands can be bought separately to customise them.
Executive Noise Cancelling Headphones
One of the most expensive and premium noise cancellation headphones available are these ones by Dr Dre. Even the highest notes will come across crystal clear and the bass is incredible. Foldable, excellent sound quality and a volume remote with microphone are the main features of these great headphones.
When trying to choose which ones would be right for you, think about how you plan on using them. What type of music will you be playing and do you need to take potential calls while you're listening to music on your smartphone? Think about the features you'll need, as well as your budget.
