[Deal Alert] Sony's excellent noise canceling MDR1000X Bluetooth headset is down to $248 ($152 off MSRP)

Sony is pulling a Lenovorola with its different Bluetooth headphones. The company confused us recently by announcing the WH-1000XM2 followed by the h.ear on 2 Wireless NC, but you don't need to worry about either of these, because this deal is on the slightly older MDR1000X. They've now dipped to $248 on Amazon, $50 less than the last time we told you about them.

If new headphones make the older generation cheaper, then we won't complain, because the MDR1000X are a really good pair. They're over-ear headphones with active noise cancelation, 20 hours of battery life, hi-res audio both in Bluetooth (LDAC) and wired modes, an ambient mode to hear your surroundings without interrupting your music or removing your headphones, NFC for easy pairing, and a nifty carry case.

[Deal Alert] Sony MDR1000X noise canceling Bluetooth headphones down to $298 ($102 off)

Over-ear Bluetooth headphones are a dime a dozen these days, but great ones that also offer noise canceling and high-quality audio are few and far between. Sony's MDR-1000X is one of these but its $399.99 price is enough to give anyone pause. However, it's now being discounted $102 thus making it $298, its lowest price yet.

The MDR-1000X is often mentioned each time we talk about the Bose QC35 and other expensive noise canceling headphones, because it falls in the same league and offers one clear advantage over its competitors: LDAC support. In layman terms, LDAC lets you transmit high-quality audio files (24-bit, 96kHz) quickly enough over Bluetooth, but if you're interested in learning more about it, you can check out this explainer from Android Authority.
