If you have not played this album a thousand times then you my friend do not have the best taste in music. And if you can’t get your hands on Lorde’s Vinyl than you could always give them a Vinyl copy of True Romance or Born To Die.

These are the only headphones worthy of my ears. Naahh. But on a serious note, I do not consider an album to be fully understood until I have listened to it on a pair of Bose QuietComforts. Every year they come out with a new edition, but they’re all great. These babies will blow your mind.

As the quietest headphones Bose has ever created, the Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Limited Edition headphones let you get more enjoyment from your music. You’ll get the audio quality you expect from Bose with less of that annoying background noise. The fit is so comfortable you can easily wear these headphones all day long. Buy It Here!
