Wyze has made a name for itself by selling dirt-cheap things that work surprisingly well, especially security cameras, bulbs and other smarthome gadgets. It has recently been expanded to more mobile-friendly technology, including a full-size set of noise-canceling headphones.

Other surprisingly premium features include a walk-through audio mode, wireless charging on the case and six-hour battery life with the ANC turned off. (It drops to 4.5 hours with ANC on.) The case is good for two recharges for a total of 18 hours from the charger. Buds Pro works with Alexa, but not Google Assistant (at least not on the specification sheet). Sensors in each knob automatically pause music if they fall out, and the bar design includes the usual touch elements.
