If you’re looking for a pair of Bluetooth headphones that will help you focus on your music (or work calls) while tuning out the noise, you’re in luck: Sony’s WH-CH710N Noise-Cancelling Headphones are on sale for $78. Regularly $179.99+, this limited-time deal knocks $101.99 off the price, which means they’re almost 57% off.
The over-ear Bluetooth headphones support digital noise cancellation, which means they use microphones to block sounds before they reach your ears. This means you can get work done in a noisy environment without getting distracted.
Sensors in the headphone will detect the environment you’re in (office, plane, street, train, etc.) and make micro adjustments so you have the best experience. There’s an “ambient audio” mode too, which will filter in important sounds (think car horns if you’re walking on the street) without interrupting your listening.
The same microphones used for noise-cancellation can be used during phone calls, so you don’t have to hold a phone up to your face. Similarly, you can control your music’s volume or switch tracks by pushing buttons on the left ear cup instead of using your phone.
Sony says the WH-CH710Ns can get up to 35 hours of music playback on a single charge. Plug it in for 10 minutes and you’ll get an hour of listening time. The battery life you get will depend on how frequently you use noise cancellation, and the volume you listen at. We recommend using noise cancelling only when necessary to extend the headphones’ battery.
Even the most discerning listener will find a lot to like about the WH-CH710Ns, which feature upgraded 30mm drivers to deliver clear sound. Sony says this new hardware can faithfully recreate highs and lows for better balance. The company’s headphones have taken a leap in audio quality recently, so expect to be impressed.
The company has also gone through great lengths to make its over-ear headphones comfortable, which you’ll notice the moment you put them on. The plush padding on the earcups and headband will allow you to wear them for hours without feeling fatigued. The headband is adjustable, so you can find the perfect fit.
This set gets you a pair of headphones, a storage case, a charging cable and an audio cable for a wired connection. Amazon says this deal will only be active for a limited time, and the store updates its pricing every few hours so we recommend snagging the deal while it’s still live. See full sale details here.
