Upgrading your headphones just got much cheaper: Sony’s discounted a handful of its best headphones in time for Amazon’s latest shopping event this week, including the excellent, editor-approved Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless noise-cancelling headphones, now $50 off for Cyber Week.
We’re fans of these headphones for their 30-hour total battery life, excellent noise-cancelling sound for music and clear calls, and their comfortable ear cups when listening for hours on end.
The top-of-the-line wireless cans aren’t the only Sony over-ears on sale today. The company’s Extra Bass wireless premium noise-cancelling headphones — which earned a Rolling Stone Audio Award this year — just got discounted on Amazon for the the online retailer’s Cyber Monday promotion.
Normally about $250, you can save 51% on the Sony Extra Bass headphones at their current discount. But if you want to score the promotion, you’ll want to act fast since the deal could change at any time.
Delivering Sony’s famously good noise cancellation, a built-in mic, and exceptionally deep bass, the wireless cans are among our editors’ favorite Bluetooth headphones we’ve recently tested that you can buy right now.
The headphones’ deep bass, air-tight ear cups, and premium sound quality make them ideal for enjoying hip-hop, electronic, house, and any other music with full low-end sound. They’re also designed to be worn for long periods of time: Thick ear cups and a soft headband make them comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time, and 30 hours of battery ensure all-day juice. Plus, if you need a quick recharge, the headphones can get 4.5 hours of battery with just 10 minutes of charging.
The headphones even come with a sleek carrying case, which helps protect them when they’re folded up and stored away in your luggage.
Noise cancellation, meantime, adjusts to wherever you are, ensuring a tranquil listening experience for working, traveling, or just enjoying alone time at home. We like customizing the sound so we can pick up noises around us, whether we’re commuting or running outdoors. This noise cancellation can be customized on your smartphone using Sony’s app. Plus, they also work with virtual assistants, including Google and Amazon’s Alexa assistant, which let you, say, control the volume of a track using only your voice.
And like most of Sony’s top-rated wireless headphones, you get extensive and intuitive onboard touch controls, from pausing tunes to adjusting volume from the cups. You can also place your hand over the right side to temporarily deactivate noise cancellation for conversations or listening to airport announcements.
Another cool reason to score this Sony headphones deal? When you buy the cans, you’ll also get a code to get Amazon Music free for up to four months, so you can get the most out of your new wireless headphones and experience the extra, extra bass they’re known for.
If you’re in need of some new headphones — or looking for an upgrade — be sure to take advantage of Sony’s current markdown on Amazon.
Another great Sony headphones deal during Cyber Week that you should know about right now is this 23 percent discount on a pair of wired Sony on-ear headphones, making them a steal at $9.99 right now.
And for the top wired earbuds deal, these Sony buds are currently 50 percent off on Amazon — meaning you’re getting a pair of solid, travel-friendly earbuds cheaper than a monthly Netflix subscription.
But that’s not the end of all the great Sony earbuds and headphones deals you can take advantage during Cyber Week. In fact, you can actually score a top-rated pair of the Sony LinkBuds true wireless earbuds for a 26% discount at the time of this writing. That gets you a 36 percent deal on the earbuds for a limited time. We’re fans of the Sony earbuds’ noise-cancelling sound, and the fact that the pair comes with built-in Alexa so you can control them using just your voice. They even boast up to 20 hours of runtime per charge using the included case, or six hours of playtime per listening session. They’re also water-resistant to boot, so you can use them for your workouts without damaging them. If you want this Sony earbuds deal, don’t wait: This discount ends in one day.
