The brilliant Bose QuietComfort 35 II are £70 off at Amazon

Enjoy the silence

Bose’s second generation of QuietComfort 35 headphones are simply amongst the best that money can buy. Favourites in airport shops around the world for their comfortable design and impeccable noise cancellation, they’re the perfect accompaniment to even the noisiest of Tube carriages. Just the other day I put mine on to drown out the banging of carpet being installed while I was trying to work – no music required, just the modified silence did the trick.
But this kind of quality comes at a price, and that price is usually £329.95. That’s why the current offer on Amazon – where you can buy the Bose QC35 II for just £259 – is seriously worth considering if you’re in the market for a new set of headphones.
To be clear that’s still a lot of money, and for all my praise, I’m not usually the kind of person to spend so much on audio. But having got a set as a free gift with a phone contract, I can confidently say that if mine were lost, stolen or broken tomorrow, I would simply have to come up with the money to replace them. I can’t really see myself going back to lesser cans now, having enjoyed these for a year.
As Jon wrote in our review: “The Bose QuietComfort 35 II are, like the headphones that preceded them, simply brilliant personal audio companions. While they may not be able to match rivals for sound quality and looks, in terms of all-round practicality and comfort they’re second to none.
“And, as for noise-cancelling, there’s still nothing else that gets close. If you can afford a pair and you travel a lot, the Bose QuietComfort 35 II are the headphones to beat and they win a well-deserved Best Buy award.”
With over £70 off, if you’re in the market for a new set of headphones, you might want to strike quickly.
