High-end active noise-cancelling headphones will run you $300 or more. Our top pick in this category—Sony’s WH-1000XM4—typically sell for about $350. This fact has lately driven many manufacturers to attempt to dramatically undercut the market with units that run less than $100. The latest in that budget brigade comes from Tribit, whose QuietPlus 72 are priced at $70 ($60 on Amazon). And as I was writing this review, Tribit was offering a 25-percent-off coupon on Amazon that brought the price all the way down to $45.
What do you get for 45 bucks? Surprisingly, quite a bit. These Bluetooth 5.0 headphones can also be used as wired cans with a standard aux cable (included). The internal battery charges via a USB-C cable (also included, but not a power adapter), and Tribit specifies 30 hours of running time before a recharge is needed, which seems perfectly adequate.
