Sony WH-1000XM4 deals
Nearly two years later, Sony’s WH-1000XM4 remain one of the best pairs of noise-canceling headphones you can buy. They offer excellent noise cancellation, good sound and voice quality, and the ability to pair to two devices simultaneously. You can wear them for long periods of time as well, as their plush ear pads make them comfortable to wear for as long as you need. They even last up to 30 hours on a single charge and charge via USB-C.
We’ve previously seen the $349.99 headphones drop to $248 — their lowest price to date. However, right now you can only buy them for around $278 at Amazon, B&H Photo, Target, Best Buy, and Sony. With the recent release of the Sony WH-1000XM5, however, we’ll likely see steeper discounts on the last-gen model in the coming months. Read our review.
