Once a premium feature exclusive to high-end headphones and earphones, active noise cancellation is now often seen even on affordable wireless audio products. While there's naturally still a significant difference in ANC performance between entry-level and premium headsets, the fact that you can now get this excellent technology at such low prices shows just how far the personal audio segment in India and abroad has come in just a few years. Today, I'm reviewing an affordable wireless headset with active noise cancellation from TCL, popular for its smart TVs and appliances in India.
The TCL ELIT200NC is an affordable neckband-style wireless headset with active noise cancellation, priced at Rs. 2,299. The wireless earphones are among the most affordable in the segment with the feature, and ANC is basic but entirely functional for the price.
However, the headset falls a bit short on sound quality, offering not much detail and a boomy sound that isn't quite as enjoyable as the competing Mi Neckband Bluetooth Earphones Pro, which also features ANC and is priced at a fair bit lower. The TCL is decent for active noise cancellation, but less than ideal in most ways.
