Bose did a great job of marketing its noise cancelling headphones, and they’re obviously fantastic. But you know what? They’re not the best anymore. QuietComfort headphones were as good as it got for a long time, but Sony stole the noise cancellation crown when it came out with the Sony WH1000XM3 Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones. They carry the same price tag as the latest Bose wireless noise cancelling headphones — $350 — and they’re worth every penny. That doesn’t mean you should spend all those pennies though, and you can get them right now on Amazon for just $259.99 if you pick up a pair of refurbs. These will almost certainly sell out, so hurry!
