Aldi noise-cancelling heaphones, travelling powerboard on sale Nov10

Aldi is pretty well known for value, my husband's mates who are 'into' tech often say how good the Aldi products are, especially for the price. Oh and their Nespresso-style coffee machine is great, too! Anyway Aldi has two great travel products on sale this Saturday November 10 which I wanted to share with everyone.

https://www.aldi.com.au/en/special-buys/special-buys-sat-10-november/saturday-detail-wk45/ps/p/noise-cancelling-headphones-8/ These are active noise-cancelling headphones, with a rechargeable battery, for $39!

https://www.aldi.com.au/en/special-buys/special-buys-sat-10-november/saturday-detail-wk45/ps/p/universal-travel-adaptor-kit-3/ This is a Universal Travel Adaptor Kit, a travelling 'powerboard' with two AU sockets and four USB sockets plus the correct AC plugs for Australia, the USA, the UK and Europe, for $19.

Aldi products can be remarkably good value-for-money. I bought $500 worth of ski gear a couple of years ago which would have cost $2000 anywhere else and their luggage generally costs about a third of what it would cost elsewhere. Sometimes -- not always -- the quality is a little lower than elsewhere, but at that price you can't go wrong: even if they last a year or two less, you're still coming out ahead financially.
As an audiophile, I'd baulk at $39 headphones, though. Even if they're the same quality as, say, $150 headphones elsewhere I'd be gobsmacked if they're audiophile-quality. But they look like great value if you don't care too much about sound quality and/or you're only going to be using them occasionally.

Bought one of the aldi powerboards a few years back, proved very handy, although USB outlets on mine aren't particularly high powered. Hopefully the current one is beefed up a bit.

I had the Aldi power board , it actually over heated while in America on one trip. The wires were hanging out from the socket. I wouldn't recommend buy one.

Yeah, they used to be 1A which is fine for low-power devices like Kindles or noise-cancelling headphones or smaller smartphones, but too modest for today’s larger-screen smartphones.

As to Aldi value - I’m quite the convert to some Aldi red wines and Champagnes, at ~$15 and ~$20 respectively they are great go-to’s for everyday no-celebration-needed sipping!
