When it comes to audio, no one in the business is better than Bose. From home theater setups to headphones, it's hard to argue that there's any better company when it comes to pure sound quality. You can save $50 on select Bose headphones at Target right now. The headphones on sale include the Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless II for $299.99 instead of $349.99 and the QuietControl 30 Wireless for $249.99 instead of $299.99. Both pairs feature noise-cancelling capabilities.
NEW YORK--The company credited with inventing premium noise cancelling headphones is finally taking such headphones wireless. Bose has just unveiled four distinct wireless headphones, headlined by two noise cancelling Bluetooth models, the 349.95 around ear QuietComfort 35 model that went on sale Sunday and the 299.95 QuietControl 30s that come out in September. For all its strengths as a recognizable top quality brand (typically with prices to match), Bose has been a laggard in the increasingly crowded wireless category. Indeed, the QC 35s and QC 30s prove that Bose intends to be a player in the space.
There are genuinely thousands of different headphones, earphones, and earbuds out there to choose from. That can seem like a great thing initially, but when you are faced with all those options, the prospect of picking the perfect set can be pretty daunting. All have the same idea at heart -- to provide you with music without having to play it out loud for everyone to hear. But some achieve this result so much better than others. Sure, you could always visit Amazon and buy the cheapest pair, but that's not always a great idea.

I've always said that the noise cancellation on the QC 35 is scary because it can block out traffic noise, and you may not hear that car that's coming right at you. It's scary because Bose doesn't allow you to turn the feature off. Sony's MDR-1000X blocks even more noise than the QC 35, but it's not so frightening because you can turn the noise cancellation off. There is even an Ambient Sound Mode that amplifies the sound like a hearing aid. An Ambient Voice Mode amplifies certain frequencies of voices so you can hear a person speak better.
