Best Bose deals: headphones, speakers, multi-room - December


Bose has become synonymous with delivering form and function in premium headphones and music systems. Sometimes not the cheapest, but you tend to be able to rely on quality. That certainly remains the case when it comes to wireless noise-cancelling headphones, where Bose remains one of the class-leaders. The company now turns out decent wireless speakers and multi-room systems, too.

And there are some good Bose deals available right now, featuring headphones, speakers and soundbars. Here we've rounded up the best prices on some of our favourite Bose products.

In-ear headphone deals

Bose SoundSport Wireless deal

Bose SoundSport Wireless

  • Wireless
  • NFC pairing
  • Six-hour battery life

These are exercise-friendly earbuds, with soft silicone rubber hooks making the fit secure enough for the gym or jogging, plus IPX4 certification meaning they can handle sweat and splashes better than normal earphones. Sound-wise, they're some of the best wireless headphones you’ll find for under £150. And the fact they're now now closer to £100 makes them all the more tempting.

Bose QuietControl 30

  • Insightful sound
  • Spacious
  • Impressive noise cancellation

These neckband wireless headphones hit all their targets: great sound quality, impressive noise-cancellation and good comfort (for those that like their design). It’s another five-star pair of chart-topping headphones from Bose.

Bose SoundSport Free

  • Weighty, full-bodied sound
  • Deep, powerful bass
  • Even tonal balance

Essentially a true wireless version of Bose's superlative SoundSport in-ears, these buds are sweat- and water-proof, and, though we had some connection issues during our test, the sound is marvellous for a pair of sports headphones at this price.

On/over-ear headphone deals

Bose QuietComfort 35 II deal

Bose QuietComfort 35 II

  • Noise-cancelling
  • Wireless sound
  • Google Assistant

Bose has been doing noise-cancelling longer than most and it shows. These wireless headphones marry a perfectly balanced, detailed sound with impressive noise-cancellation and a clever addition of Google Assistant. The QuietComfort II headphones have a dedicated button to activate Google Assistant, which lets you play music, ask questions and hear your smartphone’s notifications. Battery life is a claimed 20 hours with a wireless connection, or 40 hours of just noise-cancellation if you’re using the 3.5mm cable that comes in the box. These headphones deserve to become travelling companions for many a frequent flier.

Bose QuietComfort 25

  • Astonishingly good noise cancellation
  • Clear, balanced sound
  • Comfortable to wear

Given our only real gripe with these on-ears when we reviewed them was their cost, the fact the QuietComfort 25s are now available for better than half price should highlight just how good a deal this is. Award winners in 2014, they remain a great pair of noise-cancelling headphones.

Wireless speaker deals

Bose SoundTouch 30 series III deal

Bose SoundTouch 30 series III

  • Multi-room speaker
  • Bluetooth
  • 3.5mm input

This is Bose's 3rd generation multi-room speaker and in truth it shows. In terms of design and sound quality its been surpassed by the likes of Sonos and Audio Pro. But there's still a solid spec, with multi-room support, wireless Bluetooth, a 3.5mm input and an Ethernet connection. The control app is so-so, with a few key functions missing compared to the competition, but for sonic detail, scale and power, it's impressive enough.

Bose SoundTouch 20 series III

  • Good detail and dynamics
  • Multi-room potential
  • Impressive scale

The smaller sibling of the SoundTouch 30 shown above, this wireless multi-room speaker from Bose shares much of the former's functionality and sonic character, but with a smaller footprint and currently a three-figure saving on its original price tag.

  • Great omnidirectional delivery
  • Big, solid, punchy sound
  • Good timing and dynamics

Another Bose product we thought a little pricey upon its release, you can now make a £50 saving on the SoundLink Revolve's original cost. Endearingly petite and portable, the Revolve spreads Bose's signature weighty sound through 360 degrees.
