A couple of Sony’s best noise-canceling wireless earbuds are currently on sale. The latest model, the WF-1000XM4, is currently matching its lowest price ever at B&H Photo and Best Buy, bringing the regular $277.99 price down to $249.99. You can also find the previous model, the WF-1000XM3 at Amazon and Best Buy for $128.00, a solid discount from its original price of $199.99.
In our review of the XM4, Verge reviewer Chris Welch admired the noise cancellation and detailed sound profile, enough so to earn these earbuds the top spot on our list of the best earbuds you can currently buy. While the XM3 may show their age at this point, in his 2019 review, Chris Welch gave these earbuds excellent marks for their sound quality and great battery life.
