BoseQC35AmazonLast month Bose discounted its iconic QC25 headphones, but that sale has now been extended to include the Bluetooth version of those headphones, the QC35s, for the first time ever.

Both pairs have a similar construction, and critically acclaimed noise cancellation, but the lack of wire on the QC35s makes them even more attractive to travelers. 

Nobody wants to coil and uncoil a cable on an airplane, bus, or train seat if they don’t have to. Because of its similarities to the QC25s I wrote about earlier, I’ll highlight the couple of ways that this pair stands out.

One concern when traveling with wireless headphones is that they’ll run out of power in the middle of a trip. Bose says this pair has 20 hours of battery life when used totally wirelessly, and 40 hours if you do choose to plug them into your phone with a cable.

In both cases, you’re probably safe if you charge these headphones the night before your trip.

You can pair the QC35’s using Bluetooth or NFC (Near Field Communication) and an iOS or Android app, which lets you adjust some simple settings and use extra features. The most interesting of those extras is the ability to connect an additional pair of Bose Bluetooth headphones, so two people can listen to the same audio simultaneously.

Because Bose has targeted its line of wireless, noise-cancelling headphones at travelers, that feature makes sense, but in my experience it’s been difficult to pull off.

Even with the discount, the QC35’s aren’t budget-friendly, but if your main priority is noise cancellation during flights, they’re one of the most highly-rated options. We’re not sure how long this discount is going to last, but if you’ve been eyeing these headphones for a while, there’s never been a better time to pick them up.
