Earlier this week, Dell lowered the price of Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless noise canceling headphones, giving Bose fans the opportunity to save some money. Amazon has now matched the price of Dell, lowering the price of its shares to $ 299 of $ 299, $ 50 from its normal price of $ 349. But they have also lowered the price of a large alternative about which we will talk later.
QuietComfort 35 II by Bose could be said to be the flagship of the company's headset line. They offer all the rich sound you expect from Bose, along with some of the best noise cancellation systems we've seen. Headphone covers fit perfectly but not uncomfortably against the ear, and active noise cancellation technology (ANC) continually adjusts the level of noise cancellation based on ambient noise to ensure that everything you hear is your music.
Of course, the Bluetooth technology included, and are fully compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Apple Siri. You can change through these with the push of a button, so you are not limited to using just one. You can also use these voice assistants to control playback.
The Bose QuietComfort 35 II are expensive and one of the most expensive headphones available. If you are looking for something cheaper, we recommend the Backbeats of Plantronics. Normally, $ 199, even at full price, are cheaper than QC 35 II. But Amazon is currently running a sale that reduces the price to $ 129 savings of $ 70.
Like the QuietComforts, the Backbeat also supports ANC, which should provide comparable performance, although not so good. In the elimination of environmental noise such as Bose headphones. There is also no support for Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri. However, the reviews say that the sound quality of the Backbeats is quite impressive for the price, even if they may not be as complete.
One thing we really like about Backbeats is their battery life. Plantronics says you can enjoy up to 24 hours of listening time on a single charge, which is good enough for a low budget wireless headset. If you can do without some of Bose's bells and whistles, then these headphones are definitely the ones you want to consider.
If you are looking for a more direct competitor to the QuietComfort 35 II feature set, we recommend that you consider that the Sony WH-1000XM3 offer is available in Drop at this time. At $ 289, the price is comparable, and the sound of these things is exceptional (just ask our AV expert, Caleb Denison, how much you like them). You will not be disappointed.
