The Bose Quietcomfort Earbuds 2 are the best noise-cancelling earbuds we've tested. Just check out our Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 review, where these earbuds delivered excellent performance in almost every category.

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 produced a strong, balanced soundscape, handling a wide range of frequencies well. They also offer adjustable EQ to tweak the audio to your preferences, as well as some presets for quickly setting bass or treble.

As you'd expect, these earbuds' noise-cancelling capabilities are exceptional. There are 10 levels of ANC here, and our reviewer found that outside sound was almost completely blocked out at high levels. You can also use Aware Mode to hear external sounds while still enjoying your music. Being dedicated noise cancelers, the ANC can't be turned off on these earbuds — but if you were planning to use the ANC a lot anyway, it's hardly a downside.

Battery life is alright with these earbuds. You get 6 hours of playtime, which extends to 24 hours with the charging case. Rivals like the Sony WF-1000XM4 can last up to 35 hours, although you'd be trading off the QuietComfort Earbuds 2's best-in-class ANC.

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 are the best noise cancelling earbuds we've tested, so grab this deal before it disappears. For more deals, check out our 4th July sales coverage.
