Looking for a Bose QuietComfort 35 II deal? Here's THE best Bose QuietComfort 35 II deal. We know that the Bose Noise Cancelling 700 headphones are £50 off at Amazon – that was my favourite Amazon Black Friday deal so far. That suggests the older and much beloved Bose QuietComfort 35 II noise cancelling headphones are no longer top dog, and retailers might be keen to get rid of old stock. Well, guess what? In the UK, things just got very real. Has John Lewis and Partners just won Black Friday?

As well as being known for heart-breaking and thought-provoking adverts, John Lewis occasionally serves up the odd deal or two and this is one of its best ever. The Bose QuietComfort 35 mk II has been for years easily the world's best selling premium noise-cancelling headphones. They sound great, the noise-cancelling is still among the very best and for a very short period of time, they're now under £200.View Deal

Why you should buy Bose noise cancelling headphones

Boasting fantastic noise cancelling abilities via wireless Bluetooth (though there is the option to plug in a cable, to save battery), the Bose Noise Cancelling 700 and QuietComfort 35 Mk II are rightly huge sellers, and widely acclaimed. The QC35 kickstarted the current market for premium, Bluetooth, noise-cancelling headphones, and the 700 takes the quality up a further notch.

The 700 and the Mk II version of the Bose QC35 both have a button to summon Google Assistant or Alexa, and can be used to make calls. However, only the 700 applies noise cancelling to your voice and that of whoever you're talking to. That not only means that call clarity is astounding, it also allows Alexa or Google Assistant to hear you better, reducing the frustration of misheard instructions.

Active noise cancelling for music is also absolutely superb on both headphones. It can be dialled up or down via the app or, on the 700, via a button press. 

There's the option to allow audio passthrough, so you can talk to your aeroplane's air crew or listen to travel announcements, without the tiresome need to remove your headphones.

On both models, the sound quality with active noise cancelling on is very good indeed. Comfort is exemplary and the battery lasts 20 hours or so per charge. 

Bose QuietComfort 35 II basically invented the market for premium wireless, noise-cancelling headphones and the QC35 II remains a stunning pair of headphones, and probably the most successful of the last decade in terms of units sold. 

While the new Noise Cancelling 700 sounds very much the same as the QC35 II with music, the improved call/AI quality, touch controls and sharper styling make it a cooler product overall. However, some may miss the ability of the older model to fold away.
