B&H Photo’s daily deal today is the Samson RTX X active noise cancelling headphones for $29.99 and no tax (except New York) and free expedited shipping. This deal ends tonight (12/6) at 11:59:59 PM EDT.
I ordered two of these back in October for my kids when they last went on sale and we are very happy with the purchase. Compared to my expensive Bose QC15’s, these have comparable audio quality, but lack a bit in noise cancellation and comfort. It’s hard to describe how things sound, but I would say the noise cancellation is about 85% as good as my Bose QC15’s with no noticeable white (hissing) noise which is often present in cheaper ANC headphones. These are also a bit heavier and clamp a little more on my big head. Overall, these are by far the best sub $100 active noise cancelling headphones I have tried.
Here’s a more in-depth review showing the various features:
