Some of you might recall a post I published a few weeks ago about my friend BJ Liederman and how he introduced me to Bose QuietComfort headphones.
Since then, I’ve been watching the prices of both the wired QuiteComfort 25 and wireless QuiteComfort 35 models. This morning, the price of the QuietComfort 25 dropped dramatically at Amazon.com. Until recently, the price was at its lowest around $280 shipped.
Since most of the time I actually prefer a wired connection to my headphones (to watch movies on commercial airlines, with SDRs on my shack PC, with portable shortwave radios and to eliminate latency) I jumped on the QuiteComfort 25 deal. Besides, if I ever decided to add wireless connectivity, I could always purchase an AirMod Bluetooth adapter. The QuietComfort 35 wireless set still cost $349 shipped. I checked Best Buy as well–they are offering the QuietComfort 25 series in their Black Friday sale today–only a dollar more than Amazon.
I just bit the bullet at Amazon. I justified it by saying this will be my early Christmas gift to myself!
