Run, don’t walk! Sony’s best-selling noise-canceling headphones with bluetooth connectivity are on sale through Cyber Monday and we already bought a pair for someone on our Christmas list this year.
The WH1000XM3 — or the XM3 for short — have long ranked as our top select for the best headphones of the year for a good reason. It’s hard to find another pair that matches the quality, ease of use, comfort and quality of the XM3s. The best-in-class active noise canceling (ANC) is strong enough to drown out any annoyance including that perpetual hum that sticks around in an airplane. Touch controls on the right cup make it simple to control your music with just a swipe, while quickly covering that same cup drops the audio in case you need to hear something, but don’t want to completely take them off. There’s also built-in voice control functionality (whether through Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant) to help you further control things. But most importantly, a single charge provides about 30 hours of playback time, so there’s no need to worry about them giving out too quickly. When the Sony XM3 model is compared to the BOSE 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones, the Sony model still wins out, that’s how solid this pair of headphones is.
With 20% off their normal price of $348, the XM3s are now down to $278. While still on the higher-end of noise-canceling headphones, this is one of the best prices around for the Sony cans. This is one of the lowest prices around for this particular version, so if you’ve had your eyes on these wireless headphones from industry-leader Sony, now is the time to act. We don’t anticipate these sticking around for long, so don’t delay.
