Released back in September for $329, Bose's brand-new QuietComfort 45 noise-canceling headphones are now on sale for a limited time for $279, their lowest price to date. That's a $50 savings. They're on sale at multiple retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy and Bose.
The QuietComfort 45 look similar to their comfy predecessor, the QuietComfort 35, and they sound pretty similar too. But they do have some small design upgrades, including USB-C charging and, more importantly, better noise canceling (possibly the best out there right now) and improved voice-calling performance.
