Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on Bose’s QuietComfort 35 (Series II) wireless noise-cancelling headphones, which are currently down to $299 at Walmart, Amazon, and various other retailers. That’s a $50 discount and the lowest non-promo-code price we’ve seen to date.
We’ve explained the deal with the QC35s before. While Bose’s bass-boosting sound doesn’t offer the accuracy or balance of other $300 cans (or even some below that), it’s at least smooth. If noise cancellation is your top priority, though, the QC35s are simply stronger at silencing the outside world (particularly low-end frequencies) than their peers. They’re also highly comfortable.
The Series II model here is actually a bit less effective at noise-cancellation than the older Series I model mentioned in the link above, but the difference isn’t so huge as to be immediately noticeable. Since Bose has discontinued the Series I, you don’t have much of a choice anyway. The Series II also adds a shortcut button for quickly accessing Alexa or the Google Assistant, if that’s something you’d ever find handy. In any case, we rarely see the Series II on sale, so if you were interested in picking up a pair, today looks like a good opportunity to do so.
