Sony has long produced some of the best wireless audio gear around, though the quality of its wares mean they don’t often come cheap. Except for this week: Amazon has turned its Black Friday deals up to 11, cutting the cost of Sony’s best wireless earbuds by 36%.
Officially, the five-star Sony WF-1000XM4 retail at £250. But Amazon’s Black Friday deal brings the noise-cancelling Sony earbuds down to a much more affordable £159, a generous price drop of £91.
The deal is available as part of the Amazon UK Black Friday deals event. And it’s not just a generous reduction: our number crunching reveals it’s actually the lowest price ever seen for this product at the online retail giant.
What makes the deal even more tempting is just how good these earbuds are. We gave the Sony ‘phones a full five-star rating in our review in 2021. Not only do we rate them as some of the top true wireless earphones and best noise-cancelling headphones, but we also think they’re among the very best headphones you can buy outright.
The feedback from our time testing the Sony WF-1000XM4 was unequivocal. We felt that they offered “a punchy, detailed and well-balanced listen”, while their ANC could “cancel external sounds pretty effectively”. We were also mightily impressed by their ergonomics. At £150, you really won’t find a more cracking offer on wireless earbuds than this one.
As well as the top-quality active noise cancellation (ANC) offered by the Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds, they also boast battery life of up to 24 hours on a single charge, speak-to-chat functionality, Amazon Alexa compatability and so much more.
They’d make a great gift for the audiophile in your life, or knock the socks off anyone looking for a new pair of in-ear headphones. With any luck, that person might even be you.
You can choose between silver or black colour options as part of this deal. Plus you can choose to pay for them over 6 months at no extra cost, if that’s a better fit for your budget.
