Bose and Sony are both competing for your business with exciting Prime Day deals

One of the best parts of sifting through Prime Day deals is finding competing discounts on the very best brands in the tech market. Right now, Bose and Sony are duking it out for your discount dollars, and that’s in addition to some already great Prime Day headphone deals.

Sony is coming out swinging with $112 off its WHCH710N Noise Cancelling Headphones; they’re down to $88 from their original price of $200. Meanwhile, Bose is punching back by discounting its QuietComfort 35 II Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones by $150; they’re only $199, down from the original price of $349. That’s a slightly bigger discount from Sony (56% to Bose’s 43%) but you’re saving more money with Bose. It’s winner-take-all in this wireless headphone bout. And no matter which you choose, the winner is you!

Sony WHCH710N Noise Cancelling Headphones — $88, was $199

What we look for in wireless headphones tends to be a mix of style and substance, and these headphones have both. They’re middleweight and comfy, with a sturdy band and soft pads for your ears and easy access to the five buttons that control volume levels, and switch between noise canceling and ambient functions.

Those features, and the space between them, are really important to these headphones, as is the battery life. There’s an estimated 35 hours of playback time with noise canceling on, and 45 hours without it, which bests Sony’s most expensive models by a solid ten hours. And the sound quality is phenomenal; they have 30-mm drivers and a frequency range of 20 to 20,000 Hz. For noise-canceling, they’re designed with Artificial Intelligence Noise Cancellation technology, which used the dual microphones in each ear cup to adapt to the environment around you — whether you’re trying to hear a little noise or shut it out completely. The WHCH710N Noise Cancelling Headphones have super responsive Bluetooth technology (they work great with Alexa and other assistant devices), but they’re also equipped with near-field communication. It allows you to pair with devices by touching them to the left earcup. Handy, right?

Bose QuietComfort 35 II Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones — $199, was $349

In a world of FaceTime and Zoom, Bose’s true innovation here is the Dual Noise Sensor Technology, which automatically senses your environment and delivers both the clearest sound to your ears and from your voice to the recipients of your calls. There are three levels of noise cancellation in the Bose QuietComfort 35 II, which allows you to customize exactly how much noise you’d like to filter out. And, of course, you’re dealing with Bose’s sound quality, which is legendary for a reason.

These noise-canceling wireless headphones have been optimized to work with the Google Assistant and Alexa, so all you need to do if you want to play a song, turn on your TV, dim the lights or lower the volume is ask for it. If you’re a traditionalist or find voice commands annoying, there are touch controls as well. Now, the battery lasts 20 hours, which doesn’t compare to Sony’s WHCH710N, but still provides an entire day’s worth of listening. And Bose has placed your comfort first. The soft ear cushions mold to your ear and the adjustable headband is wrapped in Alcantara fabric, which feels luxurious and is way more comfortable than other models. And Bose provides its own app, the Bose Connect App, for your phone, so you can always make your adjustments there, too.
