Black Friday deals are going strong, and now’s a great time to buy big for one of the best noise-canceling headphones we’ve tested.
Right now, the Sony WH-1000XM4 is on sale for $228 at Amazon (opens in new tab), bringing these popular ANC wireless headphones to their lowest price ever. That’s a $122 savings on one of our favorite pairs of cordless cans. Similar deals can also be found at Best Buy (opens in new tab) and Walmart (opens in new tab).
Update: The black and blue models are still in stock on November 24, but silver is out of stock.
Whether you want them for listening at home or commuting to and from the office, these headphones are first class thanks to their slim yet lightweight design and excellent sound quality. In fact, before the new Sony WH-1000XM5 arrived earlier this year, the WH-1000XM4 topped our list of best wireless headphones and best noise canceling headphones.
In our Sony WH-1000XM4 review, we described the headphones as “Sony’s best noise-canceling headphones to date” and called them “a refined improvement that stands out as the best in the series, beating even the best-in-class Bose 700 in several key areas.” We liked the excellent audio, remarkable noise cancellation, the intuitive smart controls and the excellent battery life of about 30 hours (with active noise cancellation switched on).
These premium headphones not only deliver loud and dynamic sound, but also contain detection sensors that automatically pause playback when the headphones are removed.
They also support the Sony Headphones Connect app, allowing you to personalize your audio experience with presets or other adjustments. The only negative in our review was that the call quality could use some work on the audio performance front.
Overall, this is a spectacular all-time best deal we’ve seen, so if you’re serious about picking up a pair, make sure you hurry, as we don’t expect stocks to last long at this price point.
