Sony’s WH1000XM2s put the noise-canceling headphone world on notice when they were released earlier this year, and now, you can get them at a discount for the first time ever. They’re still an investment at $298, but if you spend any significant amount of time in planes, trains, or just a noisy office, they’ll probably be the best thing you buy this year.
Last year’s model is also down to $228, though its battery only lasts 20 hours compared to 30 on the new one, and its noise-cancelling engine and sound quality aren’t quite as good.
If these are out of your price range, Sony’s extra bass noise canceling cans are also on sale for $123. They won’s sound nearly as good, and don’t have all the advanced features of the 1000XM2s, but that’s still a great deal.
