Price cuts in the past Sony’s WH-1000XM5 over-ear, noise-canceling headphones Amazon has a new version with a massive $121 discount. The original one was $50 off. Whether you’re keeping track or not, this is the biggest price cut to date. Today’s deal is on the silver (more like off-white) color scheme only, which may be a disappointment if you prefer black. However, you’d be smart to try to get a price match from a different retailer, which may help you get the color you want, and get it from a store where you might have some holiday gift cards to spend. You can find all the details in our article on price-matching.
At $279, you won’t find a set of headphones that are better than the XM5 at drowning distractions with superb noise cancellation. While the new design sets them apart from Sony’s previous models, their enhanced sound and voice call quality are bigger reasons to consider these. Pricier headphones might get you better build materials (the XM5 are clad in almost nothing but plastic), but they probably won’t get you a better overall value. See our review.
While it’s a refurbished unit, Bose backs them with a one-year warranty and a 90-day risk-free trial period, though it may have “minor, nearly imperceptible blemishes.” If you or the recipient of this gift won’t mind, this is a smart way to save on 2022’s best Bluetooth speaker.
