If you’re looking for a pair of noise-canceling headphones with superb audio and comfort, you can’t go wrong with Sony’s WH series. The flagship series has been one of the top noise-canceling options on the market for years, and right now you can save big on the latest model: the Sony WH-1000XM5. The XM5 headphones are discounted to $348 at Amazon. Alternatively, you can grab the XM4 headphones–which are still awesome–for $278 (down from $350). Both headphones are available at these prices in three different colors: black, blue, and silver.
There’s a lot of great technology packed into these cans, but it’s the noise-canceling features that make them one of the best around. This iteration uses what Sony calls “Auto NC Optimizer” to automatically adjust the noise-canceling function based on your wearing conditions and environment, resulting in excellent audio isolation.
Beyond that, the headset itself has a lightweight design with soft leather, the new Integrated Processor V1 provides a sumptuous range of Bluetooth-powered sound for your music-listening sessions, and its battery life can last up to 30 hours. If you’re in a rush, you can easily grab a few hours of playback from just a few minutes of charging.
The other big selling feature here is the selection of touch control settings that will allow you to pause, play, skip tracks, control volume, activate your voice assistant, and answer phone calls.
