Your going to struggle to get active noise canceling that is any good for a budget of $40. For that budget you will probably need to look at the used market. At the $40 price point there probably isn't a huge difference in audio quality of wired vs wireless. Typically at the low end like this wired would probably have a slight difference in sound quality because they are far simpler circuits, and don't need a battery etc. That said it's really dependent on the model here.

You can buy Bose Wired QC 25's refurbished for around $115 ish with coupons sometimes. These were the gold standard for noise canceling headphones for years.
