After a particularly long stretch of snow days this winter, I realized I needed a pair of¬†noise-canceling headphones. Because, kids. If you are with me, here’s one that takes care of two big parental issues: Tangle-free, noise-cancelling¬†Juice 2.0 earbuds from Zipbuds.

 

Also? They’re super affordable.

The¬†signature feature is a¬†zipper cable designed to keep those wily little cords from getting¬†tangled in my¬†bag–or in the hands of my¬†children– and it’s pretty genius. Of course, it can still get itself in a knot, but definitely reduces the possibility.

I wondered, though, if these were all about the zipper and not about the sound. I mean, how great could the quality be for $24.99?¬†The answer¬†is,¬†they’re decent. I took a walk outside with them, and the noise of lawnmowers and kids playing¬†was mostly blocked. Then again, so¬†was the noise of oncoming cars (yikes).

They are not top-of-the-line sound quality for sure; for that you’ll want something like the¬†BeoPlay H8 noise-cancelling headphones¬†from Bang & Olufsen, which¬†Liz raved about at CES.¬†But then, those are hardly 25 bucks.

 

Zipbuds tangle-free noise-canceling earbuds

 

 

With Zipbuds, you will find the cord is heavier than the nearly-weightless iPhone standard issue, and it can make¬†a slight squeaking noise when you’re moving around with them on. (I’ve seen other reviews with similar complaints.)¬†My¬†tip: wearing¬†them over my¬†back seems to fix that problem. And the weight means they’re probably not your best bet for serious workouts or runs. But for listening to music with affordable earbuds that a clever fix for both¬†tangles and ambient noise, it’s pretty hard to beat these.

In fact, go ahead and try them out. They have a 30-day, no-questions-asked return policy.
