Noise-cancelling headphones for autistic son

Hi,

I want to get my son some noise-cancelling headphones but don't want to break the bank, mostly because I'm not sure how long they'll survive.

My son has autism and is very sensitive to noise. For a long time we've always just used ear earmuffs/hearing protectors. Well now he watches his ipad and stuff so he needs to hear.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I think ear covering ones would work best (so the entire ear is covered). I think we'd prefer wireless as well. The noise canceling is way more important than the quality of the sound. Anything around $100 or so would work. I've tried my friends QC35s, but I don't think it would be a good idea to let him carry those around at that cost.

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks,

Joe

I bought qc35ii in March and bose really does great at noise canceling.

For $100 budget this article mentioned the best-valued Monoprice Hi-Fi Active Noise-Canceling Headphone. FYI: https://www.lifewire.com/best-noise-...phones-4049122

These are the ones I had my eye on, which are the big brother to the ones you got:

Thank you for the recommendation. I think i'll probably buy these.

Problem is those are wired. I don't think we can go back to wired. He moves around a lot (mostly jumping) while he's watching and I think we spoiled him by getting rid of the wire.
