Picking up a decent pair of noise canceling headphones can be a costly affair, but if you’re willing to go a little off the beaten path, you can save yourself a small fortune. While something from the likes of Sony or Bose will set you back somewhere north of $300, you can get some noise canceling headphones from TaoTronics right now for just $40.

While it’s pretty obvious that no matter how good these headphones are they aren’t going to be able to really compare with the likes of the big guns, but at this price they just need to not suck. Amazingly, by all accounts, these manage to not only not suck, but be pretty damned good as well.

Available in multiple colors, although only the black are available at this price, the TaoTronics headphones have a great rating of 4.5 starts out of five from over 800 reviews, which should speak volumes about their quality.

With a 30 hours play time from their built-in batteries, and a look that certainly belies their low price, these are a great option for anyone who wants some inexpensive noise canceling headphones.
