If you spend a lot of time in planes, trains, or just loud open office settings, it's worth investing in a really good pair of noise canceling headphones.
Pretty much every major tech publication over the last year has come to the consensus that Sony's clunkily-named WH1000XM3 headphones offer the most effective noise cancelation money can buy. They're basically a mute button for the world around you, and can turn everything from a rattling subway car to an old MD-80 into your own personal oasis of calm and quiet.
And naturally, they also offer some of the best sound quality you'll find in a pair of wireless headphones, and boast features like a touch controls, painless smartphone pairing, and even the ability turn down your music and let sound in if someone's trying to get your attention just by putting your hand over the right earcup.
Rarely discounted from their usual $350, you can invest in a pair for $230 right now from Rakuten with promo code ALT18A (must be signed into a free account).
