Black Friday headphones deals are landing all over the internet left, right and centre, and here's one of the best options out there for anyone after premium true wireless earbuds.

Right now, Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Crutchfield have slashed $80 off the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds. That means you can pick up Bose's five-star noise-cancelling buds for the rock-bottom price of only $199. That's the lowest price we've ever seen them – and in line with the figure they crashed to earlier in the month.

We called the QuietComfort Earbuds "great all-rounders", praising their "impressive musicality" and "superb balance". So today's generous $80 discount is not to be sniffed at.

The fantastic, five-star true wireless earbuds combine brilliant noise-cancelling tech with natural, dynamic sound. They're worthy challengers to the AirPods Pro – especially now they've dropped from $279 to only $199 at a host of retailers including Amazon and Best Buy.

As we noted in our Bose QuietComfort Earbuds review, these five-star buds "deliver an energetic, balanced sound and brilliant noise-cancelling". They may not have quite the subtlety of the (more expensive) Sony WF-1000XM4, but 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 earbuds themselves might not be as svelte as some, but that's partly 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 degrees of noise cancelling (from 0 to 10). Experiment with the different levels and you’ll hear the QuietComfort do their thing, cutting out huge swathes of background noise when on the maximum setting.

You get six hours 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're suitable for sporty stuff.

In short, they're more than a match for any rival at this level – especially now that they are reduced by a massive $80.
