It’s no secret that Sony makes some of the best noise canceling headphones on the market. But the company’s ANC headphones usually come with a hefty price tag. After the Sony WH-1000XM4, Sony released the WH-1000XM5 earlier this year. The headphones employ a new design, 30mm drivers, and cost $400, $50 more than their predecessor. Thankfully, the headphones are now in for a healthy $52 discount on Amazon.
Sony is currently selling the WH-1000XM5 for $348 on Amazon. Although not low by record, the price is the best we’ve seen on the site according to data aggregated by camelcamelcamel. You can get the headphones for cheaper than the Newegg ($330 USD) if you’re comfortable buying from a third-party seller.
So how good is the Sony WH-1000XM5? According to RTINGS’ review of the cans, these headphones are incredible for commuters with impressive ANC that can eliminate background noise to a noticeable degree. The sound quality is also good provided you don’t want a neutral sound as the headphones tend to be on the heavy side. Finally, the WH-1000XM5 also has impressive battery life. They lasted up to 27 hours on a single charge according to RTINGS.
In short, if you want industry-leading ANC, the Sony WH-1000XM5 might be your best option at a discounted price of $348.
