The QC 15s are considered by their maker as “the best Bose around-ear headphones, period.” That is a bold statement from a company that makes critically-acclaimed audio gear and right now you can pick them up from Amazon for just $269, their lowest price ever. This deal matches the recent Apple Store promotion but is a bit better thanks to Amazon Prime benefits and potential tax savings at the time of purchase.

The Bose Quiet Comfort 15 headphones feature a comfortable around-the-ear fit,  remote / mic with full compatibility for Apple devices, and an average battery life of 25 hours on two AAA batteries. Perhaps the most important feature of these headphones is the ability to reduce noise across a wide spectrum of frequencies. Bose details how they are able to achieve this:

Within every pair of QC15 headphones, advanced electronics use microphones inside and outside each earcup to sense the sounds around you-and reduce the noise. Proprietary ear cushion technology blocks some of the noise before it even reaches your ears. Together, these Bose innovations add up to a more enjoyable listening experience.

Reviewers tend to agree with Bose that these headphones are amazing, rating them an outstanding 4.5 stars.
