Presently, Sony is known for making the best headphones on the market — the incredible noise-canceling WH-1000XM5 — but they also make a budget pair of headphones with noise-cancelation and a similar look. Those headphones, the Sony WHCH720N, are on sale today for just $100. That’s $50 off of their standard $150 price point. To get yours, all you need to do is tap the button below. Otherwise, keep reading to see our take on these headphones, what they’re capable of, and who they’re for.

Why you should buy the Sony WHCH720N

For audio, the Sony WHCH720N boost quality with their internal processor to reproduce full details. By design, tunes should be balanced from the high to the low frequency ranges fairly evenly, so nothing comes across as too bass heavy or too tinny, and vocals are made to come through clearly. The noise cancelation comes first from the earcups, which have thick, egg-shaped pads. (There are also 20 levels of settings for how much ambient sound to let in, should it feel awkward to live in a muffled environment due to the pads.) Then, the rest comes from quality noise cancelation that, while not Sony’s finest, should serve you just fine. If you intend to listen to music with these headphones with the noise cancelation engaged, which is not an unusual thing to do while wearing headphones, you’ll likely be satisfied.

So, who then, are the Sony WHCH720N for? If you want some noise-cancellation to get the edge off of a busy location but aren’t bothered by signs of humanity, you might favor these headphones for their great price, 35 hour battery life, and good sound quality. While these aren’t going to make the best noise-canceling headphones list, they pull a good mid-tier spot for those that aren’t too finicky. Again, the combination of the noise cancellation provided and listening to music together should block most things out. At the given price, they are great value headphones and can be thought of as an introduction to the WH-1000XM5 or whatever the next gen of Sony ANC headphones will be when you get tired of them.

To get your pair of the Sony WHCH720N for $50, just tap the button below. You’ll see the Sony WHCH720N priced for $100 instead of $150. Should these headphones not work for you, consider checking out excellent headphones deals, which include earbuds as well.

Today only: Beats Studio Buds are down to $80 from $150
The Beats Studio Buds in their charging case.

Beats headphone deals are the kinds of sales we stay extra-watchful for. As an Apple sub-brand, Beats headphones and earbuds deliver exceptional sound quality and powerful noise cancelling for fairly reasonable prices. But right now, you’ll be able to grab the Beats Studio Buds for $80. They’re normally $150, and this is just one of many Best Buy deals we discovered this week!

Why you should buy the Beats Studio Buds
Noise cancelling earbuds are made by just about every noteworthy audio company these days, but Apple seems to have a way of cancelling those unwanted frequencies that other brands struggle to match. Such is the case with the Beats Studio Buds. Not only will you be able to block out the decibels you don’t want pounding around in your ears, but a fast switchover to Transparency mode immediately amplifies the sounds around you; allowing you to have conversations without removing your earbuds.

Our favorite headphones, Sony WH-1000XM5, are $70 off today

With how loud and crowded the world has gotten, having a solid pair of headphones to keep all the noise out can be really helpful. When it comes to active noise cancellation (ANC), our pick for the best headphones on the market is the Sony WH-1000XM5, which easily competes with the likes of the AirPods Max. That said, the XM5s can get really expensive, which is why we're happy to see this deal on Amazon that brings the price down to $329 from its original $400 price, saving you a solid $71, which may not seem like much, but it's a great amount for one of the best headphones you can grab.

Why you should buy the Sony WH-1000XM5
There is a lot to love about the Sony WH-1000XM5, and the excellent audio fidelity is one of them. Ironically enough, it has smaller drivers than the previous generation, and yet it still manages to upgrade the audio quality with a balanced overall sound and a surprisingly great bass response that makes it thumpy but doesn't muddy the sound. Realistically, you can pretty much listen to any genre of music you want on the XM5s, although it does slightly favor those who prefer a more neutral sound rather than something a bit more bass-heavy.

While there are a lot of excellent headphones on the market, you don't need to spend a ton on the best headphones to get yourself something that's pretty solid. One great example is the Bose QuietComfort, which is the slightly upgraded version of the Bose QuietComfort 45, which are already excellent. Even better, you can get the Bose QC for just $249, rather than the usual $349 that they go for, so that's a substantial $100 discount on the usual price.
