The high-end Bose QuietComfort Ultra headphones, which we gave a near-perfect 4.5 rating to, have just hit an all-time low price ahead of the Amazon Big Spring Sale. Anyone seeking high-end audio performance from their over-the-ear headphones will enjoy these, especially at their current all-time low price.

Currently, Amazon has the Bose QC Ultra headphones on sale for $379, which is $50 off the regular price. That’s a 12% discount. More importantly, this is the first substantial discount we've seen for this pair of high-end headphones, so they’re absolutely worth buying if you like having the latest and greatest without paying full price.

In our Bose QC Ultra Headphones review, we were fond of the modernized design, immersive audio experience, and impressive active noise cancellation. When the ANC is turned up to max, hearing anything from the outside world is almost impossible. In fact, we estimate that 95% of the outside noise is blocked out with the Bose headphones on, which is nothing short of impressive.

The battery life is solid, with an estimated lifespan of up to 24 hours. Though using the immersive audio features drops the lifespan to about 18 hours, it's still in the same range as its main competitors. For recharging, you can expect to get about 3 hours with 15 minutes on the charger.

If spatial audio is a major selling point for you, we found that the Bose QC Ultra offered livelier sonic presentations than Apple or Sony, so you can expect the best of the best in that regard. (Check out our AirPods Max vs. Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones comparison to see how they stacked up against each other).
