Our favourite true wireless earbuds can be snapped up for a mere £159 in one of the best Black Friday headphones deals going
This offer on the Sony WF-1000XM4 is the best Black Friday headphones deal we’ve seen so far. Our favourite true wireless earbuds have fallen to an all-time low price of just £159, which is over £90 cheaper than their launch price and £40 less than their average price over the past 12 months.
Both the black and silver colourways are on offer and either would make a perfect gift for an audio obsessive.
Whichever colour you opt for, the Sony WF-1000XM4 are premium active noise-cancelling earbuds that tick just about every box. Audiophiles will be pleased with crisp, clean audio that nails all the important musical elements from punchy bass notes to detailed highs.
You’ll never miss a beat either, since together the buds and charging case offer an impressive 24 hours of audio playback. Meanwhile, an IPX4 rating for water resistance makes them a fine choice for trips to the gym or runs in the rain, while a speedy five-minute quick charge ensures you won’t be left waiting long if you ever forget to top them up. They’re supremely comfortable in your ears, too, while looking far sleeker than their WF-1000XM3 predecessor.
But perhaps their greatest strength lies in their Adaptive Sound Control, which automatically adjusts sound and noise-cancelling settings based on where you are and what you’re doing. It works exceptionally well and creates a personalised audio experience unlike any other earbuds on the market.
The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds might offer slightly more effective noise cancellation, and the B&W PI7 a more neutral, natural sound profile, but neither match the WF-1000XM4 as an overall package. They’re the most complete true wireless earbuds on the market, and as such, received our coveted Best Buy award when we reviewed them last year.
That award was given at their launch price of £250 – thanks to this Black Friday deal, you can add sensational value for money to the long list of the WF-1000XM4’s qualities.
