For those awkward walks to your next class or even to deafen the surrounding noise if your trying to concentrate, headphones are the perfect remedy for peace and quiet. Although in-ear headphones like AirPods seem to be the most popular right now, the sound quality and noise-cancelling ability are rather lacking. A pair of around-ear headphones such as these Sennheiser headphones are a great option. Padded ear cups and high quality wiring make for a great audio experience. Prices range slightly but some are fairly affordable at $200 USD. Coupled with a 2 year warranty, Sennheiser headphones are truly a great back to school item.
