Maxell Noise Canceling Headphones Block Out The Sounds of Life

Maxell is the latest company to come out with a pair (two, even!) of noise canceling headphones so that you can block out the annoying sounds of life while you're listening to Cold War Kids and their washing machine song. The two headphones are supposed to reduce noise by up to 90 percent—that's almost 100 percent! You can grab the over-the-ears HP-NC22, which is powered by AAA batteries, or the in-ear HP-NC18. Jump to see the over-the-ear beauties.
