I loved my first pair of Bose noise-cancelling headphones so much that I ended up doing some heavy Internet sleuthing to get them fixed when one side stopped working (the headphones were so old that a Bose customer rep noted they hadn’t supported the model in years.) Turns out it was a faulty cord, which a simple eBay purchased solved.
I eventually upgraded to Bose’s QuietComfort 35 II headphones, which are wireless, active noise cancelling and voice assistant, uh, assisted. I paid full price, and it was worth it. For you? It’s $195 for a new set, or 44% off from the original $349 list price and a new low, as currently offered at Woot (most other sites currently have the headphones at $249-$299).
What you’re getting: 20 hours of listening time, three levels of noise cancellation, incredible sound (this model is a few years old and it’s still one of my favorites), tactile button controls and some bells and whistles — like an augmented reality function called Bose AR available through an app — that you certainly don’t need but offer up some unique experiences. Plus, it’s earned a great 4.7/5 stars rating from Amazon readers.
The sale is going on for three days or until stock runs out (we’d suggest buying sooner than later). Shipping is free for Prime members. And for less than $200, you may end up with headphones that’ll last you nearly a decade.
