Audio technology has advanced at warp speed in the past 20 years, and the A-Audio Legacy noise-cancelling headphones leaves competition in the dust.

These cutting-edge headphones picked up an Innovation Award at CES this year. Considering the combination of power and luxury, it’s easy to see why.

What truly sets the A-Audio headphones apart from the rest? Its unique three-stage technology, which adapts the sound to your ambient surroundings. You can choose between three settings: general audio, bass enhancer, and noise-cancellation.

Memory foam cushioning provides excellent comfort. The closed, circumaural earcups deliver rich sound with a bassy kick, while shutting out external noise. You can even share your tunes with a friend thanks to the A-Audio’s dual jacks.

The A-Audio Legacy headphones would normally cost you $299, but you can grab them for just $79 via the Daily Dot store. The deal features a 73 percent markdown, and includes free shipping to the U.S. Choose between the two design options: Liquid Chrome and Phantom Black. Buy it here.
