There’s nothing worse than being on a red-eye flight surrounded by crying babies, desperate for sleep. But now, thanks to these noise-cancelling headphones Amazon buyers are currently obsessing over, that nightmare scenario is a thing of the past.

The wireless COWIN E7 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones feature 30 hours of playtime so they won’t run out even on the most grueling long-haul flights. They've racked up more than 6,400 five-star reviews, and the best part: they're only $60.

These bluetooth headphones also feature “Protein ear pads,” which rotate for a close fit on your ear while still being lightweight, according to COWIN, because there’s nothing more annoying than feeling like your ear is being pinched when you’re trying to binge-watch an entire season on Netflix. And with the “40mm big speaker drivers” you’ll be able to enjoy everything from your favorite movie to rocking out at 30,000 feet without losing any sound quality.

As noise-cancelling headphones become more and more essential for travel, it’s no wonder Amazon customers can’t get enough of these:

Reviewer lindsay ann wrote that she bought the headphones for a long-haul flight and “they were extremely comfortable and not super bulky and heavy. I am very pleased with the battery life too. Overall these are a great pair of headphones and I would recommend them to anyone, especially if you will be wearing for long periods of time.”

Reviewer Lucas Jon praised the long-lasting battery life, calling it “UNPRECEDENTED” and adding that the “Bluetooth connection is lightning fast and has superb distance. In an open field I’ve used them further than 80’ from my phone.”

Fellow reviewer Wendy wrote, “I wanted some wireless, noise cancelling headphones that were comfortable and had a decent battery life that I didn't have to take out a 2nd mortgage to purchase… I got these and put them on after charging and wow. I'm impressed! Sound is pretty nice, noise cancelling is awesome. In fact, I think it's comparable to the higher priced headphones I was considering before. I really don't need a set of headphones that will cancel out every utterance of daily life, just the majority of ambient noise will make me happy. But honestly, I find that they fit so well around my ears that I really don't need to use the noise cancelling feature that much. Just the fit makes it noise cancelling.”

The COWIN E7 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones are available in black, white, purple, blue and red on Amazon starting at $60.
