The Bose QuietComfort 45 is a Bluetooth headset that features a ridiculous 22 hours of battery life, which should get you through your round trip and then some. Need a top-up? You can get three hours of battery life with only a 15-minute charge. These headphones can also be plugged in, which will help the battery last even longer.

Those features have earned the QuietComfort its fair share of fans, like this gentleman who did "much research" and said, "They live up to the hype, [noise canceling] is great, but I just like faithful reproduction of sound, and these do it. I almost want to cry, the music is so clear. My only gripe is they aren't loud enough for my old ears, but the reality is they are probably saving my ears! Man, these sound amazing. No regrets!!"

A longtime Bose fan wrote, "These headphones are the lightest I've ever used, and that directly translates to comfort when wearing them for hours on end. ... The sound is super clear and crisp."

One shopper found them great for keeping a happy household: "I purchased these headphones for my husband so he could watch movies after I go to bed without disturbing the rest of the house. He loves the sound quality, the ability to add or remove devices at will and the fact he is not 'tethered' to the sound system by a cord. Worth the price!"

Ultimately, Bose QuietComfort 45 made a convert out of a longtime Beats user, who wrote, "As soon as I put these headphones on, I knew they were going to be amazing! The noise cancellation alone is outstanding, but the comfortable over-the-ear design is magical. After years of being loyal to Beats, I was done with their low quality. Bose, simply put, makes a high-quality product that delivers on all aspects for those who enjoy over-the-ear design."

These truly are worth every cent — grab them while they're on sale!
