If you're serious about music and want a serious pair of headphones to match, the over-ear Bose QuietComfort 45s are one of the best you'll find out there. They're one of CNET's favorite full-size headphones on the market, high on our lists of best over-ear headphones and best noise-canceling headphones. And right now at Amazon, you can pick them up for just $249 -- $80 off and a match for the lowest price we've seen. There's no set expiration on this deal, so there's no guaranteeing how long it will be available. We'd recommend you get your order in sooner rather than later if you're hoping to snag a pair at this price.

The Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones offer some of the best noise-canceling capabilities out there. In his Bose QuietComfort 45 review, CNET's David Carnoy called their noise canceling the "best of the best," and while they may have since been dethroned by the $400 Sony WH-1000XM5, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better pair for under $300. They also boast competitive sound quality with support for hi-fi audio and an active EQ that optimizes sound based on your listening volume. 

These headphones use Bluetooth 5.1, which has a range of up to 30 feet, as well as an aux port for wired listening. They have a battery life of up to 24 hours on a single charge.
