If you have a plane ride in your future (or just a loud desk mate), a pair of noise-canceling headphones may be the difference between a pleasant afternoon spent listening to your favorite podcast and a headache. Frequent flier Brian Kelly, a.k.a. The Points Guy, told us that these Bose headphones are his “must-have for every flight, especially the red-eyes and long hauls,” because they “tune out everything and anything.” Travel blogger Pauline Egge is another fan, saying, “The sound is, of course, phenomenal — so perfect to watch a movie, listen to some music, or get into a meditation mode.” And they’re even Chris Black–approved: “I wanted to hate them because they are standard issue for any true frequent flyer, but they are the best and therefore … I must use them.” In addition to a their superior sound and noise-canceling ability, the headphones have a 20-hour battery life, are Bluetooth-compatible, and have Alexa built-in. Today, at 37 percent off, this snazzy rose style is just $220 — the cheapest we’ve ever seen.
