The Guitar Center is jumping into the online deals game too, they are offering the new condition closed-back over-ear Audio Technica M40X for $80 with free shipping or free “ship to store” (where available/possible).

Bose QC25 Closed Over-Ears ANC headphones for $179

With the release of the Bose Quiet Comfort (QC for short) 35 II at $350, the older non-bluetooth QC 25 is now two generations behind, which means, sale time! The new condition Bose QC25 is on sale for $179 with free shipping in iOS or Android at Amazon by Amazon actual (limit 3 per customer) and at B&H Photo where you earn 5% promotional rewards (about $9 to be spent in the future over there).

These are ANC headphones without bluetooth. Their ANC circuit is powered by a AAA battery, not a built-in rechargeable like the QC 35 models, so if you have philosophical preference on battery options, this is a decision point 🙂
