Bose's superb wireless noise-cancelling QuietComfort Earbuds are now up to 47 per cent off, bringing the price as low as £132 (opens in new tab) for the black version. The 'Soapstone' finish (pictured above) is a little extra at £140 (opens in new tab).

The massive discount on the £250 RRP comes courtesy of the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale (or 'Prime Day 2', as it's being called), which is running until midnight on Wednesday.

Bose recently released the sequels to these headphones, the aptly named QuietComfort Earbuds II, though they are unsurprisingly a fair bit more expensive at £280.

The fantastic five-star true wireless earbuds combine brilliant noise-cancelling tech with natural, dynamic sound. They are worthy challengers to the AirPods Pro and Sony XM4 – especially at this new ultra-low price.

Happy with stealthy black, as opposed to the silvery 'Soapstone' finish? Well, that versions even cheaper! The QC Earbuds in black have dropped to £132 – a massive 47 per cent off the usual RRP.

As we noted in our Bose QuietComfort Earbuds review, these brilliant buds deliver an "energetic, balanced sound and brilliant noise-cancelling". They are a serious candidate for best-in-class, and more than capable of giving the excellent Apple AirPods Pro a run for their money.

The QuietComfort Earbuds might not be as physically svelte as some of the competition, but that's because Bose has packed in so much tech.

As well as delivering a sonic masterclass, the QuietComfort buds live up to their name with no fewer than 11 levels of noise cancelling (from 0 to 10). Experiment with the different levels and you will hear the QuietComfort do their thing, cutting out huge swathes of background noise when on the maximum setting.

You get six hours of playback from the buds themselves (18 hours total with the included charging case). Like to get out and about? These buds are lightweight, comfortable and weather-resistant, too, so they are suitable for sporty stuff.

So, should you buy them for £132 (opens in new tab) (£140 (opens in new tab) if you go for the 'Soapstone' finish)? We think you will be very pleased if you do. Sure, the Sony WF-1000XM4 offer slightly more sonically, but when it comes to noise-cancelling, Bose's first-generation QuietComfort Earbuds are hard to beat.

Got some extra cash? You might also want to consider the brand new Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II, which we recently awarded five stars. Just don't expect to see them in the sale just yet.
