The QuietComfort 25 (QC25s) are one of Bose’s “old school” noise-canceling headphones. They were released nearly five years ago and, yes, because they aren’t wireless, today the QC25s definitely look and feel a little out of date. That said, they still sound very good, deliver excellent noise-cancellation and are one of the most comfortable pairs of headphones for traveling. And of course, you can get them for pretty cheap these days. If you’re cool with wired noise-canceling headphones, Amazon is currently selling the QC25s for $129.
(Note: Bose doesn’t actually sell its QuietComfort 25 headphones anymore, so if you want “new” pair you’ll have to buy through a third-party site.)
