When it comes to noise cancelling headphones and earbuds, Bose definitely knows what they are doing. They have recently released their latest update to their super popular QuietComfort headphones series (the Bose QC 45) but what is on sale today is their earbuds that came out last year – and they are great!

I have tried several pairs of noise canceling earbuds (from Sony, Amazon, Apple, Jabra, Jaybird, Bose) and one of my favorites to this day was the old Bose Quietcomfort 20 earbuds. These had great battery life and the fit was great and the noise canceling tech worked good for in-ear models. The only reason I no longer use them is they were corded and my phone and tablet lack an earphone jack (c’mon, Apple!).
But, I had the chance to try out the Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Earbuds last year when they came out and I have to say – they are awesome! One of the biggest problems with noise cancelling earbuds is the fit. Part of the way that in-ear noise cancelling earbuds work is by providing a passive method – that is creating a tight enough fit to help block ambient noise. Over the ear headphones obviously have that part down so the earbuds have to work a little harder in this area to come anywhere close to the headphones.
Well, the fit of the Bose QuietComfort noise cancelling earbuds were excellent! Fit is very much subjective, I do know that. I sold my old Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds because, while they were great, the fit was just not working for me. Currently, I use the Apple AirPods Pro but even these do not have a great fit for my ears (or, at least one ear). With the Bose, the fit was nice and not cramped and they did a great job.
Good Battery Life and App Control
In the Bose app, you have some customization to noise cancellation as well as EQ and I found that it was nice to be in control of such things again, control that Apple does not give customers that use AirPods. The battery life was great as well (up to 6 hours) , for earbuds, and the case was compact enough to fit in my pocket. If I had not already had AirPods, I would have kept the Bose – in fact, I recently bought a pair on sale (refurb) because I would rather use those for most situations now!
Anyway, I have watched carefully and I do not believe that there has been a sale on them since they came out (for new ones) so this could be the first! And it is a great enough sale that I think they can move a bunch! This may have something to do with the fact that Apple is expected to unveil AirPods 3 next Monday…
Also on sale are the following Bose headphones/earbuds/frames. I used the Bose Sport True Wireless Earbuds for a while as well and found them to be excellent (I switched a couple of years back to my current favorites – the Jaybird Vista).

One of the things I love about Bose, beyond the tech and the durability, is their support of their products. I have used Bose products for years and had a couple that had problems after a ton of use. No questions asked, they replaced them! Awesome customer service!
