If you’re in the market for active noise cancelling headphones, Bose has that category on lock. Bargain hunters looking for a deal have one today, as Bose is offering the white version of its popular QuietComfort 25 headphones for Android for $225, or $75 off sticker price. The black and iOS versions are still $299.
While we don’t have a review up for the QC 25 in particular, I do have extensive experience with the cans testing for… other… outlets. What I can tell you is that while the audio quality isn’t going to make you forget a pair of HD 800s or anything, the active noise cancellation unit is absolutely stellar. Unlike most ANC headsets, the QC 25 does a great job across all frequencies, so that airplane trips, commutes, and train rides will be relatively free of noise. That much hasn’t changed even with the QC 25’s successor: the Bose QuietComfort 35.
These are fairly basic wired headphones—a plus in my honest opinion—and aren’t all that complicated to use or set up. However, be sure to pick up a spare set of batteries at checkout because heavy use of the ANC unit will require a couple spare cells handy.
It’s unclear how long this deal will last, so check it out while it’s still around.
