While Black Friday and Cyber Monday saw many discounts on wireless headphones, one pair from the leader in noise-cancellation was noticeably missing from the deals: Bose’s latest Noise-Cancelling Headphones 700. But a week later, Amazon and other retailers have finally dropped the cost by a modest $50 off, if you want to score some of the best new noise-cancelling technology before the holidays.
We tested the Bose 700 in comparison to Apple’s new AirPods Pro on a cross-country fight and found that even the best wireless earbuds can’t match their noise isolation and battery life. We’ve also recommended the less expensive Bose Quiet Comfort 35 headphones in the past, but the new 700 includes the same 20-hour wireless battery life, Alexa compatibility, and Bose augmented-reality feature as the Quiet Comfort 35, while adding touch controls, a new Bose music app, and 11 levels of noise-cancellation (up from three). The microphone system with four mics also makes them great at isolating your voice from surrounding sounds while you take phone calls.
Beyond the impressive sound, noise-cancellation, and battery life, you’ll also want your over-ear headphones to be as slim and comfortable as possible. The Bose 700 delivers here as well due to the lightweight construction—just half a pound. It also comes with a compact carrying case (about seven inches wide and two inches deep), and is available in black, silver, or white styles.
Though all of these remarkable features come with a much higher price tag than many wireless buckets, you can score the Bose 700 for $350 now instead of $400. If you’re searching for wireless over-ear headphones at a lower price, there are still some discounts on other models after Black Friday and Cyber Monday that you may want to shop below.
