Best Buy discounts Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones for Memorial Day

Sony WH-1000xM3 headphones

The long holiday weekend is here, and Memorial Day sales are in full swing. There are a host of great deals out there, and we’ve uncovered a great one on Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones at Best Buy which will save you a ton of money.

Normally $350, Best Buy has marked down these headphones to just $278 through Memorial Day. That price is one of the better deals we’ve seen so far on the WH-1000XM3’s, and if you’re in the market for a new pair of headphones, a great option to go with. These headphones perenially make our list of the best wireless headphones on the market today, and for a good reason.

The WH-1000XM3’s are Sony’s third-generation flagship wireless headphones, offering outstanding noise-canceling, audio quality, and comfort. They’re also our editor’s choice in wireless headphones, and all for a good reason.

Sony’s LDAC technology is what makes these headphones so great-sounding. The company claims that LDAC can transmit sound at three times the quality of standard Bluetooth, and while we can’t verify that number, we can tell you these headphones do sound better than your typical run-of-the-mill Bluetooth headphones.

Its noise-cancellation technology is some of the best we’ve encountered, with only the Bose Noise Canceling 700’s able to beat it. But Bose lags the WH-1000XM3’s is in sound quality, so we’ll take that compromise.

But the noise cancellation in these headphones is still damn good. You can choose how much sound you let in and what kind of sound. One nifty feature is “voice only,” which can block out all exterior sound except for the human voice, which we think is pretty helpful for those of us who wear these for extended periods, but still need to know if someone’s talking to us.

Touch controls allow you to navigate volume, make calls, and play and pause music with ease, while not compromising the beautiful design of these cans. And you can listen for more than a full day without a recharge — Sony claims 30 hours of battery life, and our tests verified that this is not just a marketing ploy.

Better yet? If you run out of juice, just 15 minutes of charging will give you an additional five hours of listening time. That’s pretty impressive. All in all, you just can’t go wrong with the Sony WH-1000XM3. These are the best wireless headphones you’ll find on the market right now — that is until the WH-1000XM4’s come out.
