It's no secret that Sony makes some of the best ANC-equipped wireless headphones you can buy today. The WH-1000XM4s, while a relatively minor upgrade over the XM3s, feature fantastic sound quality, long-lasting battery life, and best-in-class noise-canceling. However, in Sony's eyes, they're just not good enough. The colors currently available for the XM4s — black, beige, and blue — are too loud and too distracting to really shut out the world. If what you need is the quietest color around, these new limited-edition headphones have you covered.
Sony's really been upping its headphone game in the last few years, and now it makes some of the best-regarded sets on the market, in both full around-the-ear and true wireless bud style. Today no less than three of its most popular designs have dramatic discounts available, including the best-in-class WH-1000XM4 noise cancelling set.
When we reviewed the Sony WH-1000XM4, we ranked them as the best product in their category. Sadly, they cost a whopping $350, which can be a roadblock for many. Thankfully, you can get them for just $228 today, provided you're willing to buy a refurbished product.
Sony has been producing excellent noise-cancelling headphones for years, and its latest high-end option is the WH-1000XM4. Despite its horrible name, the headphones offer incredible isolation and sound quality, and now they are at their lowest price yet: $278.00.
You're probably surfing Prime Day for some sweet tech deals, and audio equipment is no exception. Sony's WH-1000XM4s are the top of the line in Bluetooth audio, and their price reflects that — though today that price is a little bit lower. The XM4s are on sale for $298 ($52 off), plus you get a free $25 gift card from Amazon.
Sony has been making noise-canceling headphones for years, and it's gotten pretty good at it. We had very few complaints about Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones, so there wasn't much to fix in the latest iteration. Still, Sony listened to customer feedback and made several notable improvements in the new WH-1000XM4. They still sound phenomenal, but Sony added wear detection, some new Bluetooth tricks, and made the noise cancelation even more effective. At the same time, the XM4s look almost identical to the last-gen headphones. They don't look ugly or cheap, but the design isn't as striking as I'd expect from the best noise-canceling headphones on the market.
Noise-canceling headphones are no longer rare—you can even get a passable pair for well under $100 now. However, Sony still makes some of the best over-ear Bluetooth headphones money can buy, and now Sony is ready to take your money for the new WH-1000XM4 cans. These headphones look very similar to the popular WH-1000XM3s, but Sony added a few new features, and improved noise-canceling. Pre-orders are up today for $350, the same as the XM3s at launch.
Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones (above) are among the best when it comes to over-the-ear Bluetooth audio, and it looks like the successor will be launching soon. Just a few weeks ago, a teardown of the Sony's Headphones Connect app uncovered some features that the upcoming WH-1000XM4would bring. Now, a listing for the 1000XM4 has appeared on Walmart's website.
Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones are pretty much the gold standard for over-ear Bluetooth noise-canceling headphones, topping the recommendation lists everywhere, including here. Building upon everything Sony's accomplished (including the derpy name), details surrounding the upcoming WH-1000XM4have leaked courtesy of a teardown of Sony's Headphones Connect app.
