Focus and flow with these over-ear, noise-canceling headphones.

In the past 12 months, I’ve really learned to appreciate noise-canceling headphones. I’ve been working solely from home for the past 6 months and there are times that even though I have my own workspace I need a bit more isolation from the world around me in order to get my work done. That’s where noise-canceling headphones come into play. There are lots of different styles of these types of headphones and one of my favorite headphone designers, Urbanista, has a great set of over-ear noise-canceling headphones called Miami.


The Miami headphones are the over-ear style and they feature soft foam on the headband as well as ear cups. While they are noise-canceling headphones, there are actually three different listening modes a user can experience — default mode, active noise canceling, and ambient sound. While the first two options are self-explanatory, the ambient sound mode needs a little bit of exposition to understand. Ambient Sound mode blocks some sound out but it still allows some ambient noise to flutter through so you can remain connected to the world around you. The headphones have a lot of modern features connected to them like extended battery life (up to 50 hours of playtime), on-ear detection (music will automatically pause if the headphones are removed), and charging via USB-C. There are four vibrant colors to choose from — ruby red, midnight black, pearl white, or teal green.
