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" in 2021. While they may have since been dethroned by the $400 Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better pair for under $300.

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. 

Also on sale today are Bose's noise-canceling QuietComfort Earbuds 2, down to $249 from $299. If you prefer your audio to be delivered via true wireless earbuds rather than over-ear cans, they're the best wireless earbuds on the market right now.
