Bose's QuietComfort Earbuds have some of the best noise-canceling out there. They also sound good. And once again they're being significantly discounted. Several retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy and Bose, have the QuietComfort Buds on sale for $199, matching their recent low. They're available in all four colors at that price.

Recently, Bose released a substantial firmware update for the earbuds, adding "full transparency with dynamic noise reduction, new modes for specific activities, Spotify Tap integration, audio controls, easier device switching -- and more." So the buds have been improving over time.

The biggest downside to the buds is that they're a little beefy and stick out of your ears. However, a lot of people, including me, love the fit of Bose's StayHear ear tips.

You can also get some limited-time discounts on a few other Bose earbuds and headphones, though the deal on the QuietComfort Earbuds is arguably the best of the bunch.

Bose QuietComfort 45: $279 ($50 off)

Bose QuietComfort 35 II: $199 ($100 off)

Bose Sport Earbuds: $149 ($30 off)
