132 MacDirectory GUIDES The E7 Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones from Mixcder provide a surprisingly premium look and feel at a fraction of the price. For any students looking for an affordable pair of headphones with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) to keep things quiet during those long study sessions, the E7's are an attractive choice. The E7's have a big, on-ear design with faux black leather finishes and soft padding on both the headband and each ear pad. Most of the construction materials are plastic, but the E7's look anything but cheap. A chrome-esque finish on each ear fork and the aforementioned faux leather padding really makes these headphones look more expensive than they cost. The interior components are metal, which can be seen when adjusting each ear pad, so the E7's aren't fragile, either. E7 Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones by Mixcder Another premium draw here is the inclusion of Active Noise Cancellation technology at this price point. And while you won't get an experience on par with the industry leaders who charge $300+ for their headphones, there is certainly a real world, noticeable impact on reducing background noise. The headphones sound pretty good for the price, too, with 40mm drivers in each ear that pump out big sound. Battery life clocks in at just under 20 hours with the ANC on. The E7's charge with the included Micro USB cable, and can even be used in a wired mode if you find yourself running out of juice at the library without an outlet in sight. An audio cable is also included, which comes packaged in the hard shell, zippered carry case—yet another premium touch for these affordable headphones. The E7's lay flat for both storage and comfort when resting on the neck. For less than $65, you can pick up comfortable, on-ear headphones with big sound that look way more expensive and pack Active Noise Cancellation. What's not to love from Mixcder?
