True wireless earbuds are among the hottest tech gadgets out there today, and they also make a fantastic gift for almost anyone. Our current favorite, the Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling earbuds, areon sale from Amazon for 27% off for Black Friday, but you’ll have to act fast. Read on to find out more about why we love these great in-ear headphones.

True wireless earbuds aren’t a new thing any more, and since Apple put them on everyone’s radar a few years ago with its AirPods, there has been a flood of other companies getting in on the game — and Apple no longer rules the game entirely. As of 2020, the Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling in-ear headphones are the best true wireless earbuds that money can buy, edging out the AirPods in both sound quality and technology features.

In our review of the Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling earbuds, we note that, while no longer totally unique, they are still superb in-ear headphones that easily give the premium AirPods Pro a serious run for their money. What places the Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds ahead of the competition that’s out there today is its active noise-canceling technology — something typically found on high-end over-ear headphones — that drowns out ambient environmental sounds for an immersive audio experience.

The digital noise canceling in the Sony WF-1000XM3 works beautifully, allowing you to fully enjoy the excellent sound quality that these true wireless earbuds provides. This is owed to Sony’s proprietary DSEE HX engine. This technology upscales lo-fidelity audio and delivers a balanced and vibrant sound with crisp, clear highs and deep, punchy lows. You can also fully customize these audio settings to your liking via the in-app equalizer, which is a nice feature that many wireless earbuds sorely lack.

The Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling earbuds are a worthy buy even at their normal price, considering that these in-ear headphones easily hang with more expensive models like the Apple AirPods Pro or Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2. At this Black Friday price, however, they’re practically a steal after a 27% off discount lets you score a pair for just $170 — one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen for the best true wireless earbuds on the market today.

Last chance: Save $50 on Sony WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones
Sony WH1000XM4

Time is running out to grab all the best deals for Amazon Prime Day 2020. One awesome bargain that expires soon is this great offer for these Sony WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones. Normally selling for $373, you can currently nab a set for only $298. A savings of $75 is nothing to shake a stick at, especially when it comes to premium wireless audio.

The WH-1000XM4 are built from the ground up to deliver stellar sound, no matter the listening environment you find yourself in. It all starts with Sony's Dual Noise Sensor technology. Two microphones (one per cup) actively capture ambient sound and filter the data to the onboard HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. Your headphones will then adjust your listening experience, based on what the QN1 decodes. Not only will your music and podcasts sound perfect everywhere, but so will your phone calls. The 1000MX4 use five dedicated microphones that isolate and enhance your speaking. We also love the speak-to-chat function. If you need to talk to another human (crazy, right?), just start talking and your music will automatically pause.
