The top-rated Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones currently sell for $249 at Amazon. Here's your chance to grab them for a lot less.

Feeling splurgy? Maybe it's time to indulge yourself in the premium headphones you've always wanted. Bose makes some of the best -- and some of CNET's favorites -- and right now there's a notable deal on an oldie-but-goodie. (Really an oldie-but-greatie.)

For a limited time, and while supplies last, Cheapskate readers can get the Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones for $189. Apply promo code CHEAPSKATE8 at checkout to knock $8 off that price, effectively negating the $8 shipping charge. (This comes from SideDeal. If you happen to have a membership at that store, you already get free shipping, meaning your final price will be $181.)

These headphones were a few bucks cheaper the last time I wrote about them, but they were refurbished. Some folks don't dig that option, especially when it comes to something that sits on your ears.

What's the big deal about these Boses? For that I'll turn you over to David Carnoy's Bose QuietComfort 35 II review. Spoiler alert: He loved them. Great sound, great comfort, great features and superb active noise canceling. 

Of course, don't forget the newer Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, which Carnoy found to sound a touch better than the QC35s. Still, unless you're a serious audiophile with oodles of cash to burn, I suspect you'll be perfectly happy with the QC35 model -- and definitely happier with the price.
