There’s nothing better than slipping on some headphones and listening to your favourite artists and podcasts. However, the best headphones that deliver an immersive listening experience often come with a hefty price tag. That’s why when a trusted source in audio like Bose offers shoppers a chance to save on their popular headphones, the savings are just too good to keep to ourselves.
If you’re looking to invest in a new pair of headphones for yourself or get a jump on your holiday shopping, be sure to head to Amazon Canada where you can save 30% on the SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II by Bose.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $189 (originally $269)
What are they?
The SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II by Bose are perfect for anyone looking for a comfortable alternative to in-ear headphones and earbuds.
These wireless headphones offer up to 15 hours of play time and Bluetooth capability for up to two devices while delivering a deep, immersive sound experience synonymous with Bose products. TriPort technology and Active EQ allow you to enjoy crisp sound - no matter the volume, while Boses’s advanced microphone system allows you to make clear calls no matter where you are.
What people are saying
Bose’s lightweight SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II have earned an average 4.5 stars based on more than 13,700 Amazon customer ratings. Shoppers have raved about the comfortability of the over-ear headphones as well as their consistent, crystal clear sound.
“I had high hopes for these headphones and I was not disappointed!” one customer wrote. “They fit comfortably around my ears, and the band is easily adjustable to ensure a perfect fit whether I wear them with or without a beanie on...Very clear audio; bass is a touch heavier than I usually opt for (I would prefer the sub-bass to be increased a little instead) but the mids and treble are pretty. The snug ear cups block out most ambient noise, so I'm really glad I didn't bother spending the extra $200 for noise-cancelling version!”
Other shoppers have also echoed that although this particular model doesn’t have noise-cancelling capability like the Bose Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones 700 ($479), the SoundLink does a fair job of blocking out external sound - for half the price.
“Awesome headphone, stylish and pure sound. Event hough they’re not a noise-cancelling model, the cushions fit well enough around the ears to work like a noise-cancelling one. Was really good outdoors, I use it for running and while at home. Ideal for wearing it a long time, does not cause any irritation to ears even after hours of use,” another added.
Quality headphones can be pricey, which is why the chance to save $80 on a model from a trusted audio brand like Bose is too good of an opportunity to pass up.
Although the SoundLink model doesn’t offer noise-cancelling capabilities, based on reviews, there is enough external sound coverage to make your listening experience enjoyable.
