Now that Cyber Monday has arrived, you’ll want to move fast to snap up great deals on headphones. And what better choice for a new pair of cans than the critically adored noise-canceling headphones from Sony? The Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones are now $278 at Amazon, which is over $70 off the list price and an absolute bargain for one of our favorite pairs of headphones of this year.
These headphones have what many people agree is the best noise-canceling technology on the market. When wearing them, there’s a button which lets you toggle between three noise-canceling options: Noise-canceling on, noise-canceling off, and an ambient sounds option which boosts the sounds around you and is great for staying safe from cars and other hazards when wearing the headphones in busy public places. There’s also an extremely useful feature that amplifies ambient sound if you hold you hand over one earcup, so you can have conversations or hear announcements without removing the headphones.
Another prime feature of the headphones is their battery, which lasts up to 30 hours from a single charge, putting them ahead of most competitors which typically have battery life in the 20 to 25-hour region. They also integrate with either Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, or Siri so you can control your phone via voice commands.
The headphones sound great by default, with clear instrumental separation and powerful bass. But if you like to adjust the sound of your headphones for yourself, then there’s a downloadable iOS and Android app which allows you to tweak the sound settings as well as setting the noise cancellation.
They are also lightweight and comfortable to wear, even for long periods. Between the comfort, the great sound, and the top-notch noise canceling, these are the ideal headphones for frequent fliers who are looking to relax on long journeys, or for office workers who need to tune out background noise in order to focus.
This is just one of the great deals available on top electronics for Cyber Monday. To see more of the bargains on offer, head to our Cyber Monday deals page.
