Deal | Stellar Sony WH-1000XM5 noise canceling headphones going for 13% less than MSRP on Amazon

Sony’s flagship Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones, the WH-1000XM5, can now be had at a cool 13% discount from Amazon. Out of a total of 3,485 reviews on the site, the headphones have an average rating of 4.5/5 with more than 75% five-star reviews. In other words, the WH-1000XM5 appear to be an excellent choice when it comes to high-end ANC cans.

It is no secret that Sony makes some of the best noise-canceling headphones on the market. But the company’s ANC headphones usually come at a steep price. Following the Sony WH-1000XM4, Sony released the WH-1000XM5 earlier this year. The headphones employ a new design, 30 mm drivers, and cost US$400, US$50 more than their predecessor. Fortunately, the headphones are now going for a healthy US$52 off on Amazon.

Sony is currently selling the WH-1000XM5 for US$348 on Amazon. While not a record low, the price is the best we’ve seen on the site according to data aggregated by camelcamelcamel. You can get the headphones for even cheaper on Newegg (US$330) if you are comfortable buying from a third-party seller.

So, how good are the Sony WH-1000XM5? Per RTINGS' review of the cans, the headphones are incredible for commuters with impressive ANC that can cull background noise by a noticeable degree. Their sound quality is also quite good provided you don’t want a neutral sound as the headphones lean on the bass-heavy side. Finally, the WH-1000XM5 also have impressive battery life. They lasted for 27 hours on a single charge according to RTINGS.

In short, if you want industry-leading ANC, the Sony WH-1000XM5 may be your best choice at the slashed rate of US$348.
