Bose has dropped its prices on some of our favorite headphones and Bluetooth speakers, aiming to sell a few more pairs to those of us who need more musical relaxation during quarantine. Given how little time we’re spending outside, and how many Zoom calls we’re on, there’s likely something here for everyone.
From speakers for bike rides to excellent headphones for virtual meetings, here are the best Bose deals right now, according to our resident audio nerds.
Bose Noise Cancelling 700 for $339 ($60 off): The acclaimed audio brand’s flagship headphones are some of the best on the market in terms of noise reduction and sound quality, but what really sets them apart is the microphones. Special artificial intelligence and beam-forming mics combine to limit background noise and improve your voice clarity, making these some of the best headphones for Zoom or phone meetings.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II for $279 ($70 off): They’re not Bose’s newest noise-canceling model, but the QC35 II (8/10, WIRED Recommends) are great headphones. They sound great and still bless your ears with some of the best sonic isolation around. They’ve even got Alexa built in, which makes finding your favorite music easy.
Bose SoundSport Earbuds for $99 ($30 off): When it comes to workout headphones, we’re fans of banded earbuds because they’re less likely to fall off when you’re out gallivanting around. The SoundSport get six hours between charges—long enough for a literal marathon—and they’re water-resistant, so they’ll last you many sweaty miles.
