Great Deal on Noise Cancelling Headphones

Amazon’s Gold Box deal of the day has the SOUL by Ludacris SL300WB High Definition Noise Canceling Headphones for $99, marked down from $299.

Gold Box Deal of the Day: Up to 65% Off Select SOUL Headphones
These headphones deliver incredible sound with a stylish punch. The SL300WB features world class noise-canceling technology combined with advanced circuitry design for powerful sound quality. The SL150BW offers an advanced driver and circuitry design for clear bass, mids and highs. Offer good today only, April 11, 2013.

These are well-regarded headphones that should offer similar performance to the much more expensive Bose QuietComforts which are the ‘frequent flyer standard’.

And I imagine that at this price they’d also be re-sellable once the deal of the day ends, at a minimum for break-even but potentially even at a profit.

  1. I don’t know if I’m happy or disappointed I read this post- it’s a great deal but now I impulse bought something today!

    Thanks for posting, great deal.

  2. Thanks Gary,
    Seems like a relatively low risk introduction to me for fulfillment by Amazon

  3. @mommypoints – i bought a pair this morning myself, my Amazon account was already pre-loaded with a gift card balance, courtesy of Staples and 5x 😛

  4. I hate to say this… but when I see dudes walking around Times Sq wearing these… they look like idiots. The sound quality may be good but the headphones are fugly.

  5. @Lantean – nobody has ever accused me of being uber-stylish, least on an airplane. I would never wear headphones walking in Times Square (and avoid Times Square when I can)

  6. Gary,

    Just ordered the Noise Cancelling headsets. Will let you know how they are once I get them.

    Thanks for the offer update.


  7. Seems like the price (judging from the Amazon tracking app) has been coming down on these for awhile. They’ve been $135-140 (Marketplace New/Amazon) since the beginning of April.

  8. if you have been to thailand, you may have seen DR DRE BEATS headphones. The best one is sold at $300 or more but in thailand it maybe a knock off but it looks same and sound quality is mind blowing, noise canceling and for around $30 to $40 after bargain.

  9. Mine arrived today, they look like Beat Audio by Dr. Dre but for $99/each a great deal, yes some of the reviews weren’t great, but the price made them attractive.

  10. Everyone who got this should check out the sound leakage in this, mine was terrible.. Thought maybe it’s a faulty unit and started googleing and came across a YouTube video of sound leakage tests for different types of noise cancelling headphones by “uravgconsumer”. Beats and soul are terrible compared to Base. Just submitted a return request in amazon.
