Stuck for something to spend your hard earned hundreds on? Like to listen to music without the niggling distractions of the outside world? Bose QuietComfort headphones aren’t cheap, but they do offer an exceptional level of digital noise reduction and excellent audio clarity. The two sets currently being touted as the best noise reduction headphones available are the QuietComfort 2 and QuietComfort 3 sets.
Shopping around won’t necessarily bag you the greatest bargain on these, either. The Bose online shop not only has some of the cheapest prices but they are also offering a free mp3 player or Bose CD player when you purchase either set before the end of June.
The QuietComfort 2 headphones, priced at £225, are around ear headphones and obviously include the patented Acoustic Noise Canceling circuitry. The technology detects external noises, identifies them, and then eliminates them from the noises you are hearing.
QuietComfort 3 headphones work in the same manner but are on ear headphones, weighing less, and include their own rechargeable battery pack. They do cost slightly more at £275 but the extra money buys you less weight, more comfort, and a rechargeable battery. What more do you want for your £50 extra?
