Thanks to a considerable price cut at the Amazon-owned retailer Woot, Sony's coveted over-ear headphones can now be ordered for $280 instead of the regular price of $400. This is one of the lowest prices ever for the wireless WH-1000XM5, which sport one of the better ANC features in the industry.

Apple's successful AirPods are certainly a practical gadget to enjoy some music on the go, but audiophiles who have to block out more noise on a regular basis might want to opt for a bulkier but also better-sounding pair of wireless over-ear headphones instead. Fittingly, this particular group of buyers can currently benefit from a mentionable deal for the Sony WH-1000XM5.

Specifically, the black color version of Sony's Bluetooth headphones is now on sale for its lowest price yet as Woot is selling the WH-1000XM5 for $280 including free shipping. Please note that this deal is exclusively available in the retailer's official app for iOS and Android. This additional effort is certainly worth the time considering that Sony's high-end wireless cans have never been this cheap on Amazon, whose current asking price for the WH-1000XM5 stands at $329.

In comparison to the official MSRP of $399, this limited-time headphones deal provides a compelling discount of $120 or 30 percent, which is a lot considering how stable Sony products usually are in terms of price. According to Rtings' comprehensive review of the WH-1000XM5, this well-made pair of wireless Sony headphones offers a long battery life of 27 hours and has decent active noise cancellation that only struggles with low-end noises but can pretty much block out anything else.

Moreover, prospective owners should note that these wireless Sony headphones might not be the perfect fit for everyone as they apparently apply some pressure to the top of smaller heads. Nonetheless, enthusiasts will appreciate the high-resolution LDAC support and graphical equalizer, which is why this sale is a great choice for bargain hunters who have been waiting for the WH-1000XM5 to drop under the $300 mark.
