Whether your giftee likes to jam to their own music, take phone calls, or listen to podcasts, they will be able to do so without any interruption if you present them with noise-canceling headphones.
Thanks to recent advancements in this particular field, not only does this type of tech block out a whopping 11 levels of noise but it now also comes with voice-assist.

If they don’t think that’s cool, they won’t think anything is cool!
