Save 15%: As of Monday, March 6, the new Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones are on sale at Amazon for 15% off. This brings their price down to $279, as opposed to their original $329 price tag. Snag them in both blue and black.

There are headphones, and then there are Bose headphones. The brand’s newest set, the QuietComfort 45, just might be the best one yet. But at an over $300 price tag, they don’t come cheap, which is why we’re so glad they’re currently on sale at Amazon for 15% off.

For the uninitiated, the Bose QC45 headphones are the brand’s newest model, replacing the QC35 II, and they come with a slew of new and upgraded features. The most impressive is the quick-charge feature, which gives you three hours of battery life after just 15 minutes of charging. The new app is even more personalized, allowing you to switch up your preferred bass, mid-range, or treble levels for the perfect sound. The battery life is even more impressive, boasting 24 hours even if you keep active noise-canceling on the whole time.

The noise-canceling features are one of the best we’ve ever seen. When you switch on the Quiet Mode, tiny microphones inside the ear cups constantly measure outside noise and cancel it out with opposite signals. You can also switch on Aware Mode so that those same microphones pick up outside noise to keep you aware of your surroundings. So, you get both an immersive listening experience when you need it, as well as the ability to turn it off when you’re on a busy street. Other features include a USB-C input and updated ear cup padding for more comfort.

Not ready for the Bose? Don’t worry: Many other options are on sale at Amazon, and you can check out the best headphone deals here. But if you’re ready to take the plunge, we couldn’t recommend the QuietComfort 45 more.
