Which headphone cancels the most noise?
ZDNET deems the Sony WH-1000XM5 the best overall noise-canceling headphones based on price, compatibility, battery life, isolation technology, noise reduction, and more. However, the Sony WH-1000XM4 are a close runner up.
What is the difference between ENC and ANC?
The ANC active noise cancellation means to cancel the noise by introducing additional noise on top of it. Technology has designed such a noise that can cancel the unwanted noises. The ENC, environmental noise cancellation, means cancelling the noise in your background or simply in your environment.
Are over-ear or in-ear better for noise cancelling?
If you want slightly better audio quality, active noise cancellation, and don’t mind heavier headphones, you should get an over-ear pair. Bluetooth is an open standard, so any headphone you pick will work with all of your devices (even if you upgrade to a new phone, tablet, or computer), and last a long time.
