Master & Dynamic MW65 Active Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones

Anyone who is attempting to work at home with family, roommates or friends knows how tricky it is to block all the little noises out, and these headphones do exactly that, even if it's just the sound of someone walking down the street outside your apartment. We love that these are noise-canceling and have an extra-long battery life, for the endless Zoom meetings currently on the agenda. $499, Master & Dynamic.

Even though we’re now months into the whole work-from-home situation due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s taking some time to adjust to the new normal. While a typical weekday used to mean heading into the office, going to meetings, chatting with coworkers and also putting on something other than a pair of sweatpants, now it means making the long commute from bed to the kitchen table and occasionally wearing a robe the entire day.

Now that we’re just fully leaning into the WFH lifestyle, it’s time to make the whole experience a little more enjoyable by brightening up the at-home workspace. Scroll through to see our favorite work-from-home desk essentials right now.
