If you’re in the market for a pair of wireless over-the-ear headphones, now is your chance to grab this popular new pair at more than a 20% discount. Originally priced at $350, the Sony WH-1000XM4 wireless noise-canceling headphones are now just $278 at Best Buy. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen on these headphones, which have earned glowing reviews from more than a dozen experts and hundreds of customers. These were just released last month and are already being hailed as the best pair you can buy.

These headphones provide industry-leading noise cancellation with Dual Noise Sensor technology and a key improvement over the MX3 headphones: A Bluetooth system on a chip that takes data 700 times per second, feeding it into the noise cancellation algorithm. That makes these headphones very effective at decreasing interference from mid-high frequency sounds like voices along with constant noise from airplanes and trains.

You’ll get a premium warm sound from these headphones and hear every detail with clarity. There are touch controls that allow you to pause and play, skip tracks, change the volume, answer calls, or speak to your virtual assistant. And these provide a smooth transition every time you speak. Just start talking to pause the music. The XM4s also have better mics than the previous model for outstanding call quality.

You get a whopping 30 hours of battery life with these headphones, and they pause the second you take them off to avoid wasting battery. What’s more, you can get a quick charge: Five hours of play in just 10 minutes. And you can connect these to two nearby Bluetooth devices, which is helpful for seamlessly switching between audio sources. They’re designed for comfortable wear over long periods and fold into an included carrying case when you’re ready to take them off. Plus, you get a USB-C charging cable, an in-flight adapter, and an audio cable in case you ever need to use a wired connection.

Simply put, these are some of the best headphones you can buy. They’ve got a 4.7/5 star rating from over 600 customer reviewers, and 92% of reviewers would recommend them to a friend. Plus, 14 experts all gave these headphones 4 or 5 stars. Just about the only thing they’re missing is waterproof protection, but if you want to compare them to other brands and models, check out our other headphone deals. Otherwise, you can snag the Sony WH1000-XM4s for $278 today, saving you $72 off the original $350 price. That just might bring these into range as a holiday gift for a loved one, or a splurge for yourself. But act fast, since there’s no telling how long this discount will last, and this is the lowest price we’ve seen yet. Choose from three gorgeous colors while supplies last.

However, if for any reason you miss this sale, there are always Black Friday headphone deals to look forward to.
