Sony no longer offering WH-1000XM3 headphones as part of Xperia 1 II orders in Europe and UK

Sony no longer offering WH-1000XM3 headphones as part of Xperia 1 II orders in Europe and UK

When pricing for the Xperia 1 II was announced last month, a lot was made of its high $1,200 price tag in the US, with some hoping it was a mistake. Sony confirmed that this was no error, but in line with Sony's pricing in recent years, its latest flagship makes more sense as a purchase in other regions. In Europe, where it retails for €1,200/£1,100, pre-order offers have included a free pair of the excellent WH-1000XM3 ANC over-ear headphones, but they've all run out now so the deal has been downgraded to include a cheaper set.

Android Auto is a great way to play media, take phone calls, and get directions more safely than just using your phone while moving.

Sony makes some of the best noise-canceling headphones and earbuds money can buy — the WH-1000XM3 and WF-1000XM3 are widely considered to be the gold standard in each of their respective product categories.
