Spring is in the air! With the weather warming (thank goodness), a new pair of premium headphones is just the thing to help you enjoy the fresh air with your favorite music and podcasts, whether it's on your porch, in your backyard or at the neighborhood park. And, sure, you could opt for the pack-leading Bose 700 or the Sony WH-1000XM4, but you'll have to shell out upwards of $400 for the privilege, and there's simply no need for that level of splurging to get incredible sound quality.

Right now you can score these Philips Wireless Active Noise-Canceling Over-Ear Headphones at the low sale price of $127 at Amazon. How's that for music to your ears?

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Superior sound, superior battery life

Originally priced at $169, these Philips Wireless Active Noise-Canceling Over-Ear Headphones will let you rock out in style all day long with up to 30 hours of battery life per charge. That's a lot of time to lose yourself in their clear tones and thumping bass. And those Bose headphones? Well, some Amazon shoppers report that these babies are just as good as (if not better than).

"Best headphones we've owned...these sound amazing," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "I own a pair of noise-cancelling Bose headphones and I'd wager these sound every bit as amazing. I'd even go as far as saying they cancel noise slightly better than my Bose do."

State of the art noise-canceling

These Philips wireless headphones also have cutting-edge noise-canceling technology. In fact, shoppers even say it's better than Sony's, which some consider the gold standard. "Great for the price. Amazing sound quality...," added another five-star reviewer. "Sony's...wasn't worth the extra (money) for me."

A nice accompaniment to that long, long battery life? Philips' cushy ear cups and headband stay comfy during the longest of long-haul listening sessions. And when you're done, these fold down for easy storage too.

We'll say it again: At 42 bucks off, the Philips Wireless Active Noise-Canceling Over-Ear Headphones are an exceptional pair that have audio and noise-canceling comparable to Bose and Sony but at a price that won't break the bank.

"These are great headphones. I use them when I mow the lawn," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I don’t hear the loud mower, just the music I’m listening to. They feel great, and after a few minutes you forget you’re wearing them. These headphones are the best quality out there....When you listen to a live concert MP3, you think you are there."

So, yeah, you'll be wanting a pair of these. Get 'em now before they sell out!
