I have written about these whenever they were in stock over the last few months because they are truly incredible earbuds and this is a great deal!
I use these all the time on flights and really prefer them over the over-the-ear headphones. They are comfortable to wear when sleeping and still do a good job of blocking out sound.
Great Deal on Bose QuietComfort 20 Noise Cancelling Earbuds
These are sold direct from Bose and are factory refurbished and only for iOS (the differencehow the volume/play controls work for each phone). There are some companies that I feel completely comfortable purchasing refurbished products from due to their quality control and how they stand behind their products – Bose is one of those companies.
This deal is the same price as for the ones from Best Buy a little while back these are available only in black (which I prefer over the white anyway which is what Best Buy had on sale).
The Bose QuietComfort 20
These are exceptionally portable and easy to throw in your carry-on, rather than carrying a larger case for over-the-ear headphones. The battery life is great on them also. Finally, they will work as earphones even when the noise cancelling function is not enabled (some of the Bose headphones do not allow that).
I have used them for a while and they really are the best for what they offer. I have tried Bose’s noise cancelling headphones but I do not like them because it is not so easy for me to sleep on airplanes with them on. With these QC20s, I have no problem with that.
These are normally $249 (since the introduction of the wireless QC30s) but you can get them right now from Bose for only $179
If you live near a Bose factory store, you can also get them at the same price there and possibly for Samsung and/or in white as well.
