Name a more iconic duo than me and my Bose QuietComfort 35s, I’ll wait. I know I sound like a broken record anytime I talk about my love for these headphones, but I don’t care. I got my pair a few years ago, and they’re pretty much the best investment I’ve ever made, not to mention they’re one of the only things I own that I use every day, without fail. This is not hyperbolic speak—I am using them as I write this article. When they go on sale, like they are right now, I’m 90% happy for everyone who buys them and 10% jealous that I paid the full $349 price for them.
While these coveted headphones usually come with a hefty price tag, Drop is having a limited-time sale on the Bose QC35IIs for just $289, which matches the lowest price we’ve ever seen at any retailer. While a new model was just released by Bose, the Smart Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, early reviews suggest they’re a bit clunkier than the QC35s, and they’re $110 more expensive to boot. I’ll be sticking with my beloved pair of QuietComforts, thank you very much.
I won’t bore you all with my laundry list of things I love about these headphones, but I do have to mention a few awesome features. The active noise-cancelation (ANC) never disappoints, even when I’m on a busy street or crowded train. A single battery charge usually lasts me up to two weeks (using them for my hour-long commutes each day), which is insane. Their lightweight feel and foam cushioning also make them so comfortable, even with extended use, that sometimes I forget I’m wearing them. Reasons like these are why, even after years on the market, they’re still one of the best noise-canceling headphones we’ve ever tested.
If you want to join the legions of Bose fans around the world, all you have to do is scoop up these headphones before Sunday, July 28th. Just keep in mind that they have an expected shipping date of August 16th, so you’ll need to wait a bit before you experience the impeccable noise cancellation that'll change the way you listen to music, I promise you.
