Black Friday deals are in full swing, and we’re pleased to see this great $80-off deal on one of our favorite pairs of wireless noise-cancelling headphones return.
Right now the Bose QuietComfort 45 Wireless Headphones are on sale for $249 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s almost 25% off the full retail price of $329. This deal brings the ANC headphones back down to their lowest-ever price. Note that this same discounted price is currently also available at Best Buy (opens in new tab).
Update: This Bose deal is still in stock as of Nov. 19 but it could sell out fast.
We rank the Bose QuietComfort 45 as some of the best headphones you can buy. And for very good reason, in our Bose QuietComfort 45 review we labeled the slick headphones a “no-brainer for Bose fans who want to swap out their older QC headphones for something more modern, or shoppers who want first-class Bose noise cancellation for a cheaper price than the 700.”
In our testing we were impressed by the high-end active noise cancellation. In fact, it’s some of the best ANC we’ve experienced on any set of headphones. We also loved the surprisingly useful Bose Music App that can be downloaded for free. The QuietComfort 45 also packs the excellent sound quality that you’d expect from a Bose product.
Other positives worth noting include the highly comfortable fit and the quick connectivity. The one area where the QuietComfort 45 really surpasses its predecessor is battery life. On a single charge, the QuietComfort 45 offers 24 hours of listening with ANC enabled. That’s an increase of 4 hours compared to the Bose QuietComfort 35 II. And if you do run low on battery, a speedy 15-minute charge will give you three hours of use, which is very handy in a pinch.
The call quality could be better from these headphones, and you can’t turn off ANC to save even more battery life, but overall you’ll be happy with this Bose.
We thought the Bose QuietComfort 45 was a good deal at full retail price, so at nearly 25% off via this Amazon Black Friday sale, it’s even easier to recommend a purchase.
