When we tried out the Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II a few years back, we couldn't get enough of their strong performance and lightweight, comfortable design. Despite having a sleek design, the headphones are sturdy and constructed with impact-resistant materials, including glass-filled nylon and corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
While we gave them 8 out of 10 stars for value at their retail price tag of $280, that price has gone down to $229 over the years. And right now, you can save an extra 35% and get these headphones for just $149, a savings of $80. The deal is also available at Bose directly.
These headphones are at their lowest price yet on Amazon -- it's unclear how long these prices will last, so grab a pair while you can. You get 15 hours of playtime with these headphones along with deep, immersive sound and improved EQ. We found these headphones have a clean and well-balanced sound that doesn't pump overpowering bass.
The headphones use Bluetooth for easy connectivity and seamless audio or video syncs. They have a wireless range of up to 30 feet. It only takes three hours to get a full charge on them. NFC tap-to-pair technology is also on board.
While they don't have active noise cancellation, CNET's David Carnoy found "the around-ear design does a good job of passively sealing out a lot of that same ambient noise."
