Will these headphones be able to cancel out the noise of my wife's nagging? She nags around 60-70 decibels depending on the subject matter

It really depends upon the frequency range of her voice -- if she's hitting all the highs and lows simultaneously (like in the white noise from a fan or engine), the ANC may be helpful. If she's only emitting a few frequencies, it's the pads of the headphones that will be helping reduce this noise more than the ANC. Unfortunately for you, the best way to reduce the noise from your wife's nagging is to take your headphones off and help with the dishes.

I’m not sure about the nagging wife, but I know they’re not enough to drown out the constant whining and pleading of a husband with a cold.

Maybe she is hoping you’ll get tired and leave. If she nags louder and louder I’d take the hint.

If she nags around 70 decibels and she’s right up in your face you will be able to hear muffled nagging. However you can just act like you can’t hear her. If you turn on music or sounds along with the noise canceling you probably won’t be able to hear her nagging.

I haven't had the liberty of purchasing these headphones but I'm amazed at the response given to this question. Cudos to you all, my day is now brighter.

With an issue like this, I tend to blast the spund. Just last week I didn't hear a peep of the gunshots in my street and boy am I glad I got these headphones or else I would've crapped myself. Overall, yes, it should drown out the most livid sounds you can think of including the siren wale of a nagging woman.

I think the noise canceling will be the least of your problems. It will be the full on punch in the nose that will follow after you strap these on in front of her!

These should be able to block out the sound of your wife’s voice, but you will find her divorce attorney to be much harder to ignore.

I got the insurance Policy with them, in case I have an accident, or a nagging wife

Life must be a bitch with a nagging wife. I am not buying these for that reason. I married a non nagging angel ! I feel for those of you that have one of those unfortunate squeaky creatures at home.....
