Bose knows a thing or two about noise-cancelling earphones.
And there’s good news for listeners looking for a good deal: while Bose’s ‘buds usually reside at the upper end of the price spectrum, there’s a discount at Amazon UK right now which makes them much more affordable.
Officially priced at £250 and sold by Bose for £205, the QuietComfort Earbuds are available now for £139 from Amazon. That’s a massive 44% saving versus the official retail price. Not only does it put the QC Earbuds closer in price to the standard Apple AirPods, but it also undercuts their biggest rival: the AirPods Pro.
We gave the QuietComfort Earbuds a full five-star rating in our review.
With 11 levels of active noise-cancelling on tap in the partner app, we reckon the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds are the true champions of ANC wireless in-ears. Natural isolation is excellent, with multiple microphones acting in concert to counteract outside sounds. The result is a magnificently hushed listening experience, with zero pressure or hiss in the ear.
But it’s not all about the quiet: the QC Earbuds also perform fantastically when it comes to playback. Bassier than you might expect from Bose, the earphones deliver plenty of detail, with a wide soundstage contributing to a really fun listen. Paired with supreme noise-cancelling, they’re a formidable pair of true-wireless in-ears.
Tempted by the sound of Amazon’s Prime Day deal? It’s only available until 13 July, so you’ll need to move quickly if you’re keen to treat your ears to a set of Bose QC Earbuds.
