(Pocket-lint) - The early Black Friday deals are kicking off in force, and the popular Bose QuietComfort 35 II are the latest to receive a significant price snip.

The QC35 II headphones have been a firm favourite of travellers since their release, thanks to multi-level active noise cancellation, 20-hour battery life and superb sound quality.

Even with the recent arrival of a newer generation, though, the asking price is generally still quite steep - something this latest deal thankfully eliminates.

The second edition of these headphones added support for either Alexa or Google Assistant, meaning you can use those voice control services from your headphones without having to reach for your phone.

And though, as we say, they've been superseded by newer Bose models, they're still very much in keeping with the top-tier rung of over-ear headphones. 

In our Bose QC35 II review, we said: "Like its predecessor, the new QC35 design is well considered, durable and practical enough to be worn all day long - even if you wear glasses. And with noise-cancelling technology that's up there with the best, the QC35 II easily earns its place as the long-haul flyers' noise-cancelling cans of choice."

That's without mentioning the active noise-cancelling, too, something Bose excels at providing. The QC35 II ups the ante from its predecessor, providing three levels to the feature and eliminating external sounds from your listening experience.

As with all early Black Friday deals, it's impossible to know just how long it will last - and even if it'll make it to the sales event itself. The price is unlikely to dip any further than this, we'd expect, so the time may be now to capitalise.
