Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones provide a comfortable fit, superb build quality, effective noise cancellation, and a fairly neutral sound output. However, they also have a bulky design and a narrow soundstage, which significantly hold them back.

Product Snapshot

Overview

First released back in late 2020, the Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones are a budget-level closed-back wireless over-the-ear headset that boasts active noise canceling technology for regular commuters traveling daily through grueling traffic.

Unlike some of the highest-rated gaming headsets in its range, these headphones feature dome-type 40 mm drivers with faux leather textured earcups and headband for comfort. And it comes with a soft pouch for easy carrying, along with an integrated mic to take calls on the go.

These headphones are fully compatible with smartphones, but only have audio output compatibility with PCs and all gaming consoles. If you need a dedicated gaming headset that has both mic input and audio output compatibility with PCs and gaming consoles, then our SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless for Xbox review would be worth a look.

The Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones also come with a 3.5 mm TRS audio cable (no in-line controls).

Consensus

our Verdict

The Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones are an excellent choice for users looking for a good ANC-enabled comfortable over-the-ear model without breaking the bank. They also offer superb build quality and easy-to-use controls for new users.

However, if you prefer gaming headphones, make sure to check our Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 review. The soundstage of the Wyze headphones is fairly narrow, despite offering a warm and neutral sound signature with accurate bass. Visit our Xbox Wireless Headset review for a wider soundstage.

Being tested at a whopping 22.6 hours on a full charge through its USB Type-C port, the Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones deliver excellent overall battery life, even with active noise cancellation enabled. But if you prefer a wired connection, take a look at our Xbox Stereo Headset review.

The Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones are full-sized over-the-ear headsets, while the Wyze Buds Pro, as the name suggests, are inner-ear earbuds. As a result, the Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones block out much more ambient noise when compared against the Wyze Buds Pro, both actively and passively. In addition, the Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones last around 22.6 hours on a single charge, whereas the Wyze Buds Pro only lasts about 4.4 hours out of the charging case. And the Noise-Cancelling Headphones allow EQ customization, unlike Buds Pro.

The Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones have a significantly more neutral and balanced audio profile with a true-to-life sound output compared to the Anker Soundcore Life Q30’s more bass-heavy sound signature, which audiophile users should prefer. On the other hand, the Anker Soundcore Life Q30 weighs around 0.58 lbs, while the Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones weigh in at 0.63 lbs. This, along with the Anker Soundcore Life Q30’s looser fit, makes it much more comfortable for longer listening sessions than the Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones.

The Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones have a much better and more durable overall build quality compared to the Mpow H10 wireless headsets. And the Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones feature a significantly more balanced and nuanced sound signature than the Mpow H10. Additionally, the Wyze Noise-Cancelling Headphones have official Wyze software for toggling active noise canceling and to control the EQ settings, unlike the Mpow H10, which doesn’t have a native app. The Wyze Headphones also support multi-device pairing, unlike H10.
