Sony and Bose make some of the best noise-canceling wireless headphones around… if you want to spend $300 or more on a pair of headphones. Fortunately there are growing options for folks on a tighter budget.
Case in point: today you can pick up a pair of TaoTronics over-ear wireless headphones with active noise canceling functionality for just $50. Will they sound as good as the new $350 Sony WH_1000XM3 headphones? Of course not. But you can buy 7 sets of the TaoTronics headphones for the price of one set of Sony’s.
And if you do have your heart set on a pair of Sony headphones, Secondipity is selling refurbished WH-CH700N headphones for $70.

What does “7 times less” mean? $50 is one-sixth of $300, and I would say that “7 times less than 300” is -1800, assuming “x times less than y” means y – xy. I have heard of the interpretation something like y/x, but that doesn’t seem to make mathematical sense here ( y/[x-1]??? ) or linguistic sense in the general case (is one time less just the same? or infinite? I feel like it should be 0.).
Doing a quick search, it looks like I’m not alone in this assessment. I would recommend avoiding this phrasing.
Yes, part of a modern trend to distort and sensationalise statistics. Sometimes its hard to tell whether it is just ignorant or being intentionally misleading, but whenever I see someone abuse figures in this way I’ll immediately distrust all the facts they quote, not just the distorted one.
– Its like adding the sentence ‘ Warning, I distort facts and take liberties with the truth ‘ at the end of a paragraph!
I’m surprised that I read right over that. “7 times less” means nothing; the appropriate description is “one-sixth as much”.
Nobody ever said math was my strong suit. I’ve updated the language.
Thanks. If it weren’t for you I most likely wouldn’t have checked out the humble bundle until after they ran out of copies of the telltale game
