Bose’s best noise-canceling headphones are heavily discounted today

Bose has some of the best headphones you can buy on the market, and while they’re usually quite expensive, there are a couple of great deals from Amazon you can take advantage of. These two are great for traveling, commuting, and general day-to-day use, so they’re quite versatile.

Bose QuietComfort 45 — $199, was $329

Right out of the box, the QuietComfort 45 (QC 45) feels great to wear for long periods, with thick padding on the earcups and the headband, making this a very comfortable set of headphones. It is also very convenient to use, with a couple of big buttons under the earcup to adjust volume and skip tracks and control the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). Bose is well known for their ANC tech, so you’re getting a high-quality set of headphones that will block out most outside sound, making it easier to listen to music or a podcast when you’re out and about. As for the audio quality, it has that well-known Bose beautification which gives you a nice balance of frequencies and works really well for everything but very base-heavy sounds.

Bose Headphones 700 — $299, was $379

On the other hand, if you tend to fly a lot, the ANC on the Bose Headphones 700 is probably one of the best and is well suited to filter out an engine’s sometimes frustrating droning noise. It also does surprisingly well with call quality as it filters out most ambient sounds around you so the person on the other end can hear clearly. As for audio fidelity, it has a reasonably strong boost to the mid and lower-treble ranges, making it sound a bit more spacious but a bit harsh or aggressive with brass sounds, which isn’t necessarily a dealbreaker if you don’t listen to music that is heavy with brass. When it comes to battery life, you’ll get around 20 hours with ANC on and 40 hours with it, so you get a relatively long listening time out of it. Luckily, the Bose Headphones 700 are comfortable to wear, and Bose has done a great job with the padding on the earcups and the headband, and the clamp force isn’t too bad either, which we appreciate.

Will Sony’s portable PlayStation Portal be your new travel buddy?
Move over, Nintendo Switch?
Sony PlayStation Portal

If you want to travel and play video games remotely, you can connect your smartphone to your PS5 at home using the PS Remote Play app. However, there are two limitations to using your smartphone or tablet to stream your PlayStation games. For starters, most smartphones don’t have the ideal visuals to get the best performance out of PS5 games. But even if you own a smartphone with a display that exceeds expectations, you may find it inconvenient to use on-screen buttons.

Well, Sony has a solution for gamers who want a handheld gaming console that’s better than a smartphone — it’s called the PlayStation Portal remote player. It comes with an 8-inch LCD screen that can support 1080p at 60 frames per second. But the best part about it is that the LCD screen is sandwiched between a PS5 DualSense wireless controller. This means you can enjoy the full gaming pad experience, including the haptic feedback when you’re playing your PlayStation games remotely.
