Looking to invest in a pair of good headphones. I’ve only used $20 pairs. No solid budget but aiming for sub-$100. Would appreciate any Black Friday deals. Thank you!! Here are my reqs: - noise canceling - with a good mic for Zoom - wire & wireless (can connect to phones + laptop)

Check out Aiwa's (US) website. They are giving out their ANC for $80 with a promo code that you can then use for buying through Amazon. Quite impressed! For reference, I generally use Bose and recently got introduced to Aiwa's headphones

Noise cancelling is adequate, no complains. Music volume is loud enough and has a good balance of high, mid and lows. I'd reach out for my pair of Bose if I'm in the mood for classical music, symphony or string instruments. Otherwise, the AIWA is quite there. For a fraction of the price, I'd say they are awesome. If you have a heavy baritone then you will sound better over the Bose. Call time voice is a little on the thinner side but crystal clear.

Op you can try these. Not sure how good they are but seems like a nice deal: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sennheiser-hd-458bt-wireless-noise-cancelling-headphones-hd-458bt-exclusive-black-red/6422051.p?skuId=6422051

Thanks for the Rec!

Tbh, the difference between $20 and under $100 isn’t that much. For truly good headphones, you’re looking in the $150-$200 range

Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10% Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly? Was it a bold move from Salesforce?

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
