Pre-Prime Day Deal: Amazon knocks $50 off the Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds

We’re still a week away from official Prime Day deals, but that doesn’t mean Amazon isn’t ready for you to start saving. There are pre-Prime Day deals dropping all the time as we get closer to the big day, including Prime Day headphones deals, like this deal on the Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling true wireless earbuds. Right now, you can get $52 off these industry-leading, true wireless, noise-canceling earphones. They’re only $178, down from their regular price of $230. This deal sounds too good to be true, but it’s real, so if you’re in the market for noise-canceling earphones, jump on it.

The fact of the matter is, this fall, and winter, and spring will be different than any before them, and we’ll need our noise-canceling headphones more than ever. Whether you’re working from home, or just trying to create a little sanctuary — to watch your favorite content, get some work done, enjoy a call, play a game, or just listen to music — you’ll need a great pair of noise-canceling earphones to make it happen, and they don’t get much better than the Sony WF-1000XM3, no matter where you take them.

When it comes to mobility, one factor that puts the Sony WF-1000XM3 ahead of any competition is battery life. Using USB-C charging, as well as a portable charging case, these cancel out noise as long as possible between charges, and then re-charge in the least amount of time. You get 24 hours of battery life at medium volume, plus a quick-charge feature that provides 90 minutes of battery life on a 10-minute charge. They’re comfortable, too. One of the best parts of true wireless earbuds is the lack of headband, which relieves pressure on your head and allows more listening time — nothing to get between you and your sound. There’s also customizable touch controls which makes adjusting volume, making calls, and other tasks as easy as you choose it to be.

Once we get inside, the impressive features don’t let up, and sound amazing. These earbuds boast the QN1e HD noise-canceling processor — once it catches the surrounding sound, the dedicated engine kicks into gear, not only canceling outside interfering noise, but using very little of your precious battery life in the process. There’s integrated support for Google Voice and the Bluetooth 5.0 chip, which transmits sound to both ears simultaneously. And there’s also Dual Noise Sensor technology, which employs dual microphones to catch any ambient nearby sounds, whether those involve conversations, in-flight-noise, or plain old traffic. For things like Zoom calls on the go, these are a lifesaver.

The Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling true wireless earbuds let you create your own space — for work, watching Netflix, video calls, gaming, or listening to music — wherever you are, no matter what you’re doing. We’ve collected some great headphones deals, but right now, these are only $178 at Amazon. That’s $52 off their regular price of $230. That sounds like too good a deal to last very long.
