There are a lot of noise cancelling headphones and earbuds on the market but my personal favorites are the Bose QuietComfort 20 earbuds. They fit very nicely in the eat but still allow you to wear them while sleeping on the airplane with your head on the side (something you cannot do with the headphones). If you were looking for a great price for these fantastic noise cancelling earbuds, this may be what you are waiting for!
Great Deal on Bose QuietComfort 20 Earbuds
These are sold direct from Bose and are factory refurbished. 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.
Some people are afraid of refurbished items but I have never had anything but excellent success with both Bose products and their customer support and would and have bought Bose refurbished devices without a second thought.
Here’s the thing – these are the same earbuds whether you use them on iOS devices or Android. The only difference is the in-line controls. The headphone pins are wired different for the iOS version compared to the Android/Samsung version because of the control electronics.
This means you could buy these and use them with your iPhone, iPad, MacBook, etc but the play/volume buttons will not work. Those will only work with Samsung/Android devices. It is up to you if that is a big deal. The noise cancelling is going to work great no matter what. Also, these are the lowest prices I can remember seeing on these so it may not be that big a deal when you consider the price!
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 $149.
