When you're craving peace-and-quiet and your partner wants to jam out, you actually both need the exact the same thing: noise-canceling headphones! Happily, Amazon just slashed prices on Bose’s Quiet Comfort 35 headphones — Series II.
Straight from Bose’s official Amazon store, you can score a pair for just $199 (was $299). That’s $100 off, which is the cheapest price we've seen on these premium headphones. Perhaps you can gift one to your partner and one to yourself!
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
“These are the best wireless headphones I have ever owned. The comfort and sound quality is just fantastic! I like to sit outside in the breezeway and listen to my tunes,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “When I set the noise cancelation to high, all the outside noise is gone and I can hear the music the way it is MEANT to be heard!”
Their long battery life and comfortable ear cups make listening a pleasure. Another great feature is the ability to pair them to any Bluetooth device with a simple double-tap (you can also switch from a laptop to a phone just as easily). Some shoppers even like these Bose headphones better than Beats by Dre.
“These are the best headphones on the market,” said a satisfied shopper. “After having Beats Studio Pro headphones for five years, they served me well but I needed a new set that was noise canceling. The Beats sound was very base heavy, not balanced and no noise cancelation at all. These Bose are literally in a different league above Beats.”
The earphones easily fold up into a sleek compact case and come with a USB charging cable, an audio cable for a wired connection and an airline adapter. Now’s the time to score an incredible deal on Bose’s wildly popular noise-canceling headphones. But hurry — a deal this good won’t last.

NEW YORK (AP) — Virgil Abloh, a leading designer whose groundbreaking fusions of streetwear and high couture made him one of the most celebrated tastemakers in fashion and beyond, has died of cancer. He was 41. Abloh's death was announced Sunday by the luxury group LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) and Abloh's own Off-White label, which he founded in 2013.

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — Localized flooding in Washington state from another in a series of rainstorms doesn't appear to be as severe as an extreme weather flooding event earlier in the month. People in the small communities of Sumas and Everson in northwest Washington had been asked to evacuate voluntarily Saturday night. Both towns near the Canadian border previously saw hundreds evacuated and severe flooding from days of rain that caused an estimated $50 million in damage to Whatcom County. I
CALAIS, France (AP) — The EU’s border agency will dispatch a plane to monitor the shores of the English Channel for migrant activity after 27 people died when their overcrowded, inflatable boat sank en route to Britain, the deadliest migration accident on record on the treacherous crossing. European migration officials agreed on the new deployment at an emergency meeting Sunday in the French port of Calais. They also pledged to work together more closely against migrant smuggling networks and th
The Liberals have introduced a bill aiming to ban conversion therapy in Canada, which is an outdated medical practice that seeks to forcibly change a person's sexual orientation to heterosexual or gender identity to cisgender. During a press conference on Monday, Canadian Attorney General and Justice Minister David Lametti detailed how the criminal code would be amended if this bill is passed.
Premier Doug Ford and his government want Ontario municipalities to approve new home construction projects more quickly, claiming that delays in approvals are driving up the cost of housing. Building more homes faster is the central topic of the housing summit that Ford will hold next month with the mayors of Ontario's 29 biggest cities and the chairs of urban regional municipalities. In recent weeks, Ford has repeatedly cited the pace of municipal construction approvals as a barrier to making h

The elected chief of the Selkirk First Nation says he has been unlawfully suspended from his duties and is asking the Yukon Supreme Court to reinstate him. Darin Isaac filed a petition on Nov. 22 asking the court to quash his suspension. He told CBC council had no legal basis to suspend him, since the First Nation does not have any recall legislation. "I want to make sure that things like this don't happen in the future," he said. Isaac was elected as chief in May 2020. According to the petition
The Bank of Canada will work with Indigenous groups to understand the wounds caused by decades of discrimination and determine how reconciliation can create a more inclusive and prosperous economy for all, Governor Tiff Macklem said on Monday. Ottawa forcibly removed thousands of Indigenous children from their communities and put them in residential schools in an effort to strip them of their language and culture, a practice that continues to scar families and individuals. "The Bank of Canada will be working with a broad spectrum of Indigenous groups to set out what reconciliation means for what we do," Macklem said.
MANCHESTER, England — As the pioneer of a high-intensity pressing game adopted widely across Germany, Ralf Rangnick was an inspiration for coaches like Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel who have gone on to be successful at two of England’s biggest soccer teams. At the age of 63, Rangnick is heading to the English game himself, ready to take on his countrymen as manager of the grandest club of them all. The revered German coach was hired Monday to lead Manchester United until the end of the season,

OTTAWA — Children turning up for their COVID-19 vaccine in Quebec last Friday were surprised to find not just the promise of a sticker at the end of the ordeal, but a waggy-tailed dog eager to be petted and potentially calm their fears over getting the shots. At least three provinces have been recruiting therapy dogs to help reassure children and adults nervous about getting needles at vaccination clinics for months. Now the specially-trained canines are being enlisted to help with the rollout o
LEIPZIG, Germany (AP) — Players' shouts echoed around an empty stadium for the first time this season in the Bundesliga as coronavirus-hit Leipzig lost 3-1 to Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday. Moussa Diaby scored one goal and assisted another for Leverkusen in a game overshadowed by the virus. “It's empty, we hear our voices, and it's not the same," Leipzig forward André Silva told broadcaster DAZN. “We'll never get used to it.” All season, German fans have had to show proof of vaccination, recent ill
One case of the new omicron COVID-19 variant has been confirmed in Quebec, the provincial government announced Monday. Public Health Director Dr. Horacio Arruda, speaking at a news conference, said tests revealed the new strain in a woman who had recently returned from Nigeria. This comes after two cases of variant, also from Nigeria, were confirmed in Ottawa. Those cases were found to have returned to the country through Montreal's airport. Arruda would not confirm whether the cases were relate
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Cases of the omicron variant of the coronavirus popped up in countries on opposite sides of the world Sunday and many governments rushed to close their borders even as scientists cautioned that it's not clear if the new variant is more alarming than other versions of the virus. The variant was identified days ago by researchers in South Africa, and much is still not known about it, including whether it is more contagious, more likely to cause serious illness or more
Wall Street stocks closed higher on Monday, regaining some of the ground they lost in Friday's sell-off, as investors were hopeful that the Omicron coronavirus variant would not lead to lockdowns after reassurance from U.S. President Joe Biden. The Nasdaq led gains among the major averages with help from the technology sector, while the S&P and the Dow advanced after suffering their biggest one-day percentage declines in months in Friday's holiday-shortened session as investors worried that the latest COVID-19 variant would cause economic disruption. Biden said on Monday that Omicron-related lockdowns were off the table for now and he urged Americans not to panic about the variant.
