There are several reasons why the Sony WH-1000XM5 reign supreme in our roundup of the best headphones, and it all begins with the amazing sound quality that they offer. This is possible through the two processors onboard the wireless headphone, which also work with eight microphones for exceptional active noise cancellation and call quality. The Sony WH-1000XM5 have also been updated to enable head-tracked spatial audio, for a more realistic experience when listening to or watching compatible content, and to make improvements to its Bluetooth multipoint technology so it’s much easier to switch between your connected devices.

The Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones can last up to 30 hours on a single charge, with just 3 minutes of charging giving back 3 hours of usage. They’re very comfortable to wear with their lightweight design, so you won’t mind having them on your head the whole day, and they come with intuitive touch controls for commands such as adjusting volume, skipping tracks, answering phone calls, and activating your preferred voice assistant.

The Sony WH-1000XM5 are among the top choices in the wireless headphone market right now, so we promise that you won’t regret making this purchase from Walmart, where you can get them for just $348 instead of $400. However, you should know that whenever the Sony WH-1000XM5 appear in headphone deals, you can be sure that they will draw a lot of attention from shoppers.

Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones hanging on wall hook in front of a mirror.

We've made it, Black Friday is here. And that means that fantastic Black Friday deals are around every corner. One of our favorite headphone makers, Sony, has a load of good Black Friday deals this year. We're seeing everything from their premium noise-canceling headphones to the latest earbuds discounted this year, with prices ranging from under $50 to just over $300. To analyze the sale, we're going to start by looking at our favorite pair of headphones, which are generously discounted. Then, we'll look at a few other choice picks.
Our favorite Sony headphone Black Friday deal

The Sony WH-1000XM5 are one of the best noise-canceling headphones of all time, only recently being usurped by the Bose QuietComfort Ultra. Their active noise-cancelation (ANC) is intuitive to use and can be shut off by a single button tap or, if your settings allow it, whenever you start speaking. The right earcup, similarly, acts as a buttonless control panel where you can swipe up or down to change volume, tap twice to pause and resume media, or hold your hand over it to hear the world clearly again. Soft earpads and a 30 hour battery life mean you'll be able to wear the headphones for extended periods without too many breaks, if you so choose or just need to focus on a project and get your work done.

Why I chose this killer Sony headphone deal this Black Friday
The Sony WH-1000XM4.

When checking out Black Friday deals, it's tempting to look for discounts on the latest tech releases. That's not always the best way to save money. For instance, right now, you can buy the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones from Best Buy for just $250 down from $350. The key thing that makes the $100 saving even more tempting is that the newer WH-1000XM5 are only enjoying a $70 price cut which means they're down to $330. In reality, there isn't $80 worth of improvements between the two. Sure, if you want the newest tech possible, pay the extra, but in my experience, the Sony WH-1000XM4 are more than good enough and one of the Black Friday headphone deals to pay attention to. Let's dive into just how good they are.

Why you should buy the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones
If you check out our look at the best headphones, you'll see the Sony WH-1000XM5 up top. They're great cans but before them, the Sony WH-1000XM4 were ruling the roost. Weirdly, while you'd think the WH-1000XM5 are superior in every way, they actually miss out on some pivotal features like how they only fold flat rather than up which is awkward for traveling with them.
