These $79 headphones make air travel and loud workspaces a little less miserable

Flying is not good for your ears. Take-off and landing are a plane ride's loudest moments, pushing cabin noise levels up to 105 decibels (dB). At cruising altitudes, the noise drops to around 85 dB but can still cause hearing harm, especially on long trips.

However, there are steps you can take to safeguard your hearing without causing too much discomfort. A 21st-century approach is to board with a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, like the Paww WaveSound 3 Noise-Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones, which are on sale for $79.99.

Combining a state-of-the-art CSR chipset with multiple microphones, the WaveSound 3's block out up to 20dB of unwanted ambient noise, independent of ANC function, sparing you from some of the ambient rackets when you're in the air. Plus, the speaker quality is nothing to scoff at, either. These headphones combine two 40mm Neodymium drivers to create a balanced, punchy sound, and they're specifically designed for higher comfort over your ears, making those flights across the pond much more bearable.

The Paww WaveSound 3 Noise-Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones retail for $149.99, but you can order them today for $79.99, saving nearly half off the normal price.
