Anyone have any suggestions?

Something that I can tie the BT to and still have some good noise canceling? My son says the beats3 are good for music and BT but not really for noise canceling.
Want something for when I mow, pressure wash, use the chain saw, etc.....

Yeah, looks good, but let me caveat....

"For ~$150-$200ish"

There are two kinds of noise canceling headphones: expensive ones, and ones that don't work worth a damn.

If you want proper noise cancellation, be prepared to spend more than that. Otherwise, you can get a quality set of cans for under a hundred that sound great without the noise cancellation.

Run away from Beats -- it's all brand and no quality. Some people like Bose; many of my cow-orkers have these and seem to like them: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01E3SNO1G/

Don't do noise canceling. Get ones that seal out external noise altogether.

Surprisingly good feedback for inexpensive BT sound cancelling headphones.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019U00D7K

Coupon code "8F3IW8QB" cuts that to $39.99. With free shipping,

Dammit! 1 day too late!
I just bought those on ebay, to get the ebucks deal and because it was cheaper than amazon (didn't have the code last night), for $70 :( ($60 after ebucks and coupon I had).

I agree that the feedback looks surprisingly good.....looked at a lot of them on the cheaper end, as I only want them for mowing/weedeating/pressure washing type of activities. Wish they had radio as well, but beggers can't be choosers. I have another headset with am/fm.....no BT though, and not noise canceling. That was $30 on its own.

Those are the newer version of what I have been using last couple of years. Nice, but I wanted the noise canceling. The ones you posted, being newer, have BT, so that may be an option as well, if I decide I really need the FM at times.

Mine still work great but let me know how the new ones work.
