Bose is known for its wireless noise-canceling headphones, and our two favorite pairs are on sale, alongside decent workout earbuds.

  • Bose Noise Cancelling 700 for $339 ($60 off): The acclaimed audio brand’s flagship headphones are some of the best on the market in terms of noise reduction and sound quality, but what really sets them apart is the microphones. Special artificial intelligence and beamforming mics combine to limit background noise and improve your voice’s clarity, making these some of the best headphones for Zoom or phone meetings.

  • Bose QuietComfort 35 II for $279 ($70 off): They’re not Bose’s newest noise-canceling model, but the QC35 II (8/10, WIRED Recommends) are still great headphones. They sound great and still bless your ears with some of the best sonic isolation around. They’ve even got Alexa built-in, which makes finding your favorite music easy.

  • Bose SoundSport Earbuds for $99 ($30 off): When it comes to workout headphones, we’re fans of banded earbuds because they’re less likely to fall off when you’re out gallivanting around. The SoundSport get six hours between charges—long enough for a literal marathon—and they’re water-resistant so they’ll last you many sweaty miles.
