One of the great things about technology advancing is that, often, features that used to be reserved for high-end and expensive devices eventually trickles down to the more affordable category. One such technology in the world of headphones is active (or adaptive) noise-canceling.​

Sony’s WH-CH710N wireless headphones with adaptive noise-canceling try to pose as an affordable alternative to the Sony WH-1000XM3, but the product still falls short in the noise reduction segment. The Bluetooth headset has decent sound, an NFC chip, and adaptive noise-canceling technology, yet the overall noise-canceling performance, material, and workmanship are just ordinary.

With the Mpow H17, customers have a relatively inexpensive over-ear headset with ANC. Meanwhile, there are more and more ANC headsets for less than $50 on Amazon. With the influx of Bluetooth headphones, the market is saturated with cheap headphones. This makes the selection difficult because a lot is promised, but unfortunately only rarely kept.​

The Mpow Holo H17 is most likely to be compared with the TaoTronics TT-BH060 (SoundSurge 60) at around $70 in terms of affordability. Both have ANC (Active Noise Canceling) to block out ambient noise more or less well. In comparison to TaoTronic’s and Cowin’s active noise cancellation headphones, Mpow H17 is an addition to the ongoing Holo Series of Mpow.

Sony WH-CH700N is an amazing wireless headphone with noise-canceling capabilities for those who want the potential of the WH-1000XM3 for less money. The WH-CH700N are close to them in terms of sound character and noise reduction efficiency, although they aren’t as powerful, of course, but at the same time, they are lighter, more compact, and are a great companion for everyday use.
