WTF are Noise Canceling Headphones?

Are noise canceling headphones just super expensive earplugs?

This post may contain affiliate links; please read my disclosure here

Noise-canceling. From that aspect that is a valid question. The headphones that claim to cancel out the noise around you are getting higher and higher in price. Does a traveler even need those? Do they just block out the sound?

Wireless Earphones Review - Trial in Travel - Sbode Sports Headphones

Wireless Earphones Review - Trial in Travel -
Sbode Sports Wireless Headphones

Please note, I did receive this product free of charge for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

If you have been to this site before you know I am a huge fan of my Plantronics wireless headphone, and listen to them almost daily on my commute. I have had them for quite some time now and was wondering what new cool wireless headphones are now out there.
As we were preparing for our makeup Aruba trip, I was contacted by Sbode folks to take a look at their wireless headphones. I have not heard of the company before, though after some research it looked good and the headphones looked really nice.

Travel Gadget Review - Plantronics BackBeat Bluetooth Headphones

Travel Gadget Review - Plantronics BackBeat Bluetooth Headphones

Disclosure: I purchased this product for my own use. I am reviewing it on my own initiative and my opinions are my own. I am not being compensated for this review.

I have been going back and forth about wireless headphones for a few months, probably ever since I had iPhone 5S and loaded it up with music. Though once I got the iPhone 6 with much more memory, I have been considering it a lot more. I research most of my gadgets decisions and same goes for this purchase. Some of the wireless headphone on the market have strange designs or headpieces. I also wanted one that could withstand daily use during a city commute, occasional jog, and would not have to take off in the rain.
My search resulted in these, and with a sale (currently 30% Off), I made the jump:

These headphones have easily accessible on-ear controls let you keep moving while you control your music or calls. BackBeat FIT continues to function through rain, sweat, and even the splash of a drink. Headset battery meter automatically displays onscreen for iPhone when it is connected. Plus every time they turn on, they let you know if the battery level is high, medium, or low. You can wirelessly update your BackBeat FIT using a free smartphone app. No connection to a computer or internet is needed to use the actual app. Moreover, the app has a Find MyHeadset feature, similar to Find My iPhone, that would help you locate your headset if it is misplaced.
Why good to have on a trip:
- Waterproof, sweatproof
- Long battery life - around 8 hours
- Easy to charge via USB cable or with USB travel USB charger adapter
- Flexible earbuds and band - can be folded to fit into pouch or pocket
- Receive and answer calls via headphones
- Adjust volume and playback all from the headphones without taking out your phone
- GPS type of tracker to find headphones if they go missing
