Prime Day has entered day two with deals on electronics of all kinds, including some terrific Prime Day headphones deals. Here at Digital Trends, we keep an eye out for deals all year round, so we already have a selection of headphone deals for you to peruse. But sometimes a deal comes around which is so good we need to highlight it for you straight away, and that’s the case with this deal on the audiophile-favorite noise-canceling headphones, the Sony WH-1000XM4. These tremendous headphones are now available with a $50 discount and with every purchase you’ll also receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card.

Sony’s flagship noise-canceling headphones are perfect for those who want to block out background noises while they work or travel. They sound great, with clear and detailed mids and highs, and the bass is well balanced so it doesn’t overwhelm the listening experience. If you have a preference for how your headphones should sound, you can adjust the EQ and noise-canceling options using the free Headphones app for iOS or Android. And the headphones come with a built-in microphone so you can use them to take calls or attend virtual meetings as well.

The previous model, the Sony WH-1000XM3, was the darling of the tech community thanks to its excellent battery life, clear sound, and exceptional noise canceling. And the updated XM4 bring all of that plus a few tweaks to make them even better. With a refined headband and adjusted padding for more comfort, they also have a smart feature where if you start talking, the music will pause and the noise canceling will switch to ambient mode so you can join in with conversations around you without ever having to touch the headphones.

These headphones were a great purchase at their full price of $350, so they’re an even better deal with $50 off. And the additional $25 Amazon Gift Card is just a sweetener to the deal. If you’ve been after a pair of comfortable, great-sounding noise-canceling headphones then you should pick these up today. You won’t be disappointed.

Wireless vs. Wired Headphones

When you’re looking to buy a pair of wireless headphones, there’s one question you need to ask yourself: Do I need to go wireless?

While it is nice to be able to connect to any of your smart devices with one pair of headphones, there are some disadvantages to cutting the cord — price being the biggest one. Taking away the wires and incorporating Bluetooth technology tends to make headphones more expensive.

But if you do choose to go the wired route, just make sure you check to see what kind of connector it uses. Is it a USB connection or does it plug into a headphone jack? USB-C options are great if you’re plugging it into a laptop or PC, but won’t work for your smartphone or tablet.
