We’ve all been there, having just managed to fall asleep with our headphones on and we roll over only to feel hard plastic jabbing into your head. Turns out Dr. Dre didn’t think about sleeping when designing those cans. But what if there was an option that wrapped comfortably around your ears for sleeping?

Even better, what if there were headphones that adjusted the volume and drowned out the sound around you based on your sleeping habits? Now we’re talking. The Kokoon EEG Bluetooth headphones do all that and more… expand full story

expiredBose QuietComfort 20/i Noise Cancelling in-ear headphones w/ mic from $245 shipped (Reg. $300)

Update (2/25 11:54pm): The 20i iOS models have seemingly disappeared from BuyDig’s site and the below Android versions have dropped another few dollars.

BuyDig offers the Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones for $249 $245 shipped. Additionally, you can also pick up the iOS specific QuietComfort 20i version for $269 shipped as well. Both sets still fetch the same regular $300 price at most retailers including Amazon and today’s deal is the current lowest price available. While we have seen special deals in the past for less, they tend to involve rebates, special checkout requirements and even the purchase of gift cards before hand.

Features:

  • 20i: Ideal for iPhone, iPod and iPad
  • 20: Ideal for Android, BlackBerry and Windows phones
  • Advanced noise reduction rivaling any full-sized headphone
  • Aware mode for hearing what’s around you while enjoying your music
  • Notable audio performance from exclusive Bose technologies
  • Long-lasting comfort plus stability from proprietary Stay Hear+ tips

This set has received a 4.5/5 star rating from over 1,100 Amazon customers. If you’re looking for something less expensive, we still have solid deals available on Klipsch in-ears and Sennheiser options.

More on the Bose QuietComfort 20i:

In-ear. Noise Cancelling. Better sound.

Consider them your go-to headphones, wherever you go. The first in-ear noise cancelling headphones from Bose give you more control over how you listen than ever before, in all kinds of environments. Block the outside world with full-on noise reduction. Or, choose Aware mode and let some of it in—all while keeping your headphones on and your music alive with Bose sound. Wherever your day takes you, QC®20i headphones keep you connected. To the beat of your music, and the pulse of what’s around you.

Lose yourself in your music. Or not so much.

With QC20i headphones, you can enjoy music on the go as never before, with an unprecedented combination of superb sound, advanced noise reduction and in-ear convenience. StayHear+ tips physically block some noise while our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology electronically reduces most of what’s left. It’s just you and your music, even in noisy environments.

But there are moments when you may not want to be so cut off from your surroundings. Crossing a city street. Waiting for airline gate announcements. This is where Aware mode comes in. Instead of removing your headphones, just press a button, and you’re back in touch with the sounds around you—while your music keeps playing and you still experience some noise reduction.

Engaging sound

All this, plus Bose lifelike sound. Sound you wouldn’t expect from in-ear headphones. Our TriPort technology and Active EQ combine to give your music a depth and balance that keep your daily soundtrack fresh and alive. The subtle details shine through, too. So wherever you are, your music’s front and center.

Comfort plus

And your music’s even easier to enjoy when you’re not fussing with your headphones. Proprietary StayHear+ tips create a soft, secure fit with no need to force them into your ears. The mushroom shape spreads contact evenly across the ear for maximum comfort, and forms a gentle seal that contributes to the headphones’ full-spectrum noise reduction.

You’re in control

Controls are all at your fingertips. Use the slider switch on the control module to turn noise cancelling on and off. The 4-button inline remote, customized for iPhone, iPad and iPod models, houses Aware mode and volume buttons. In addition, the call answer/end button also enables music/video functions and voice commands.

Rechargeable battery

The built-in lithium-ion battery (located inside the module) charges in just 2 hours with the included USB cable, and delivers up to 16 hours playing time per charge. A battery indicator light displays power status. And, even if the battery dies your music still plays with performance equal to that of our regular in-ear headphones.

The headphones and cables fit nicely into the carrying case when not in use.

Also be sure to check out the recently unveiled Parrot Zik 2.0 headphones.

More from Parrot:

At Parrot we’ve developed new headphones using ground- breaking technology to create a truly immersive sound. The Zik are designed around a powerful processor that spatializes sound and recreates the acoustics of a concert hall. Three months ago, I asked Lou Reed for his opinion. He told me that the headphones were well tuned for classical music but not for rock. And he told me he could help.

So on September 30th, 2013, I travelled to his studio in New York; it would be the last time I would see him. Working alongside his experienced sound engineer as well as Parrot Zik’s acoustic designers, Lou Reed used his personal mastering studio to program the Zik as if he were adjusting the balance for one of his own performances. You can now experience the extraordinary results by using a special control on the Parrot Audio Suite app for iPhone® or Android™. Thank you Lou.

Parrot ZIK is fitted with an ultra-intuitive touch control panel on the right headphone: when connected via Bluetooth, slide your finger vertically to adjust the volume and horizontally to skip to the next track.

Parrot has developed a complete movement recognition algorithm designed to be simple and intuitive for the user.
