Bose products are known for their excellent sound quality, and the new Bose QuietComfort II headphones are no exception. They claim to offer the best active noise cancellation in the world and have a new CustomTune technology that automatically adjusts the music to the taste of your ears. They also have “aware mode” which pauses noise cancellation when you need to hear your surroundings.

If you didn’t like the bulk of the original Bose QuietComfort headphones, there’s good news: the QuietComfort II headphones are a third smaller than their predecessor. They’re also water and sweat resistant, so you can wear them to the gym.

The Bose QuietComfort II earphones offer six hours of battery life on a single charge and come with a charging case that holds three additional charges (24 hours of battery life in total). You can control music, answer calls, and adjust volume just by tapping on your headphones instead of having to use your phone. These Bluetooth 5.3 compatible headphones are available in black and soapstone.
