    The Bose Quiet Comfort 45 noise-canceling headphones hit the sweet spot of price and performance. They don’t sound quite as good as the Bose 700, but their sound is still satisfying they’re and are significantly cheaper that their upscale siblings. They also earn top marks from our testers for their noise-canceling performance.

    Why it’s a good deal: Bose products don’t go on sale very often, so this chance to save almost 25 percent on a solid-performing model deserves your consideration.

    If you want spectacular sound, this is the deal for you. The Sony WF-1000XM4 is one of our top-rated pairs of noise-canceling earbuds, featuring stellar sound quality and noise cancellation that ranks among the best in this category. It also sports a long battery life and handy features such as an ambient sound-monitoring mode that lets you keep an ear on your environment.

    Why it’s a good deal: Even at a modest discount, these Sonys are so good they’re a worthwhile buy. And this deal is best price we’ve seen all year.

    The Sennheiser Momentum 2 is a true wireless noise canceling headphone that’s clearly aimed at the high-end market. Both the cloth covered charging case and the earbuds themselves are quite elegant. The Momentum 2s don’t sound quite as good as they look, but they’re still satisfying to listen to. On the feature front, the Momentum 2s are sweat resistant and compatible with both Apple Siri and Google Assistant.

    Why it’s a good deal: The Momentum combines high style and decent performance and this sale price is just $10 more than the lowest we’ve seen in months.

    Ths Sennheiser CX Plus offers really good value in a true wireless noise-canceling earbud. According to our testers, the sound quality is more than solid, while the active noise-canceling performance is among the best we’ve tested and includes a transparency mode so you can hear traffic while you’re walking. Some users might find the buds a bit bulky, but our testers found the fit to be fine for most users.

    Why it’s a good deal: This deal puts the CX Plus earbuds significantly below their list price.

    The second-generation AirPods Pro don’t look very different from their predecessors, but they have some useful new features, including an improved case with a Find Me function. The newest Pros sound better than the first-generation model and also have top-ranked noise canceling. The Adaptive Transparency mode didn’t seem to perform as promised in attenuating loud noises, but it still offers greater safety by allowing you to hear while walking down a street.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is a modest discount, but new Apple products rarely drop in price and these Pros represent a modest improvement over their good-performing predecessors.

    The Beats Fit Pro share a lot of features with the Apple AirPods Pro. They’re true wireless, noise canceling models, with very respectable sound and a certain amount of style. They also address the fit issues that some users have with AirPods and they’re better suited to Android phone users.

    Why it’s a good deal: The Beats Fit Pro is a satisfying product and a $50 discount makes them a nice buy.
