The QuietComfort 45 earned a strong Engadget review score thanks in part to the excellent sound quality. It offers crisp highs, robust mids and deep bass when a song demands it. The tuning is more neutral than other models, so bass is not booming but exactly as it was intended to be. At the same time, the active noise cancellation is highly effective in a wide range of environments like a train, office or coffee shop. It can even handle things like TVs, voices and similar distractions that other headphones struggle with.

It also comes with handy onboard controls for playing/pausing music, adjusting volume and switching between ANC and ambient sound mode. They charge via USB-C and have an impressive 22.5-hour battery life, so you can wear them all day long without missing a beat.

The only downsides are a less-than-sleek design and the lack of automated pausing seen on rival headphones like the Sony's WH-1000XM4. Also, their multi-device connectivity can be a bit finicky because they don't automatically reconnect to a second device after you take a call. But otherwise, the QC45 are excellent ANC headphones, and this is one of the lowest prices we've seen to date.
