TL;DR: The Bose QC 35 II and Bose SoundSport Free are two of the best noise-canceling headphones on the market right now, and select colors are at their lowest prices on Amazon: save $129 and $60, respectively.
Jessica Simpson and the Pussycat Dolls both released new music in early Feb. 2020 in what feels like the first time since we were all using the original Razr. Green Day is also releasing new music later in February.
We're not sure what's up with this random wave of 2000s nostalgia, but we do know that these upcoming releases make us want to splurge on a new pair of headphones. Conveniently, Amazon is having an unprecedented Bose sale right now: You can grab the Bose QC 35 II or the Bose SoundSport Free headphones at all-time-low prices of $220 and $139, respectively. The only catch? There's only one color option at that price.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II Noise-Canceling Headphones (rose gold) — $220 (save $129)
Finding a discount on a pair that lands in the top three best noise-canceling headphones is rare. Finding them for $60 cheaper than their Black Friday price is a miracle. (It is only the rose gold pair, but we digress. I guess it's because of Valentine's Day.) Bose's volume-optimized EQ follows your lead as you control how loud your music is, adjusting the EQ along the lines of the Fletcher-Muson curve to achieve the accurate frequencies for each genre and a euphoric experience even in the middle of the subway.
Regularly $349.99, you can save $129 and get the rose gold pair for $220 with free shipping.
Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Headphones —?$139 (save $60)
The market for noise-canceling truly wireless earbuds is a barren one. The AirPods Pro and Bose SoundSport Free are two of the only real competitors that vow to seal sound out without requiring an over-ear or on-ear design. The SoundSport Free shine when it comes to gym time or running in the rain, with a waterproof rating of IPX4 and three different pairs of ear tips to ensure a snug fit. One thing the AirPods don't have but these do? An app that helps you track down a lost earbud.
Regularly $199, you can save $60 and get the midnight blue pair for $139 with free shipping.
