Noise-canceling earbuds such as the AirPods Pro or, more recently, Surface Earbuds, are stolen (and likely reduced the audible jolt of) a lot of thunder from larger noise-canceling headphones that dominate long flights. But why should we have to trade one distraction for another, even if it’s relatively comforting music or white noise? QuietOn says that its noise-canceling earbuds are the smallest on the market, in part because they have no Bluetooth feature. The $199 buds use a button on their surface to quiet audio. QuietOn recommends the product for those trying to escape the snoring of a partner, but even small earbuds can be uncomfortable for side-sleepers.
