‘Tis the season for the loud sounds of bhajans, aartis and Bollywood tunes. Now if you’re not involved in the festivities, and merely trying to get work – or Netflix — done in the peace and quiet of your home, this can be a bit of a bother.

Here are some noise-cancelling headphones to help you get through the day and nights ahead.


HD-461-G Over-Ear Headphones may look like a pair of open-back headphones, but they are actually closed in order to isolate any background sound. At INR 5,149, they are a steal.

The BassLine DJ Style Headset make for a great pair to numb yourself out with bass-heavy music during a train ride to work. At INR 6,000, they can silence the aunty trying to shout 'Andheri?' in your ear.
