Amazon deal: Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-cancelling headphones are now £65 off

Even at full price these Sony earbuds were a great buy - now, with a sizable 28% discount, they’re an essential purchase

We’re huge fans of the Sony WF-1000XM3 headphones. In fact, we’ve named them our pick for the best in-ear noise-cancelling headphones on the market in 2019 – beating out fierce competition from the likes of Apple’s Airpods and Bose’s SoundSport earbuds. So far, there’s little that can compare, even in 2020. 

Making a brilliant buy all the more enticing is Amazon, who has slashed the Sony WF-1000XM3 headphones by a massive 28% – bringing them down to a bargain £165.

One of our few hang-ups with the WF-1000XM3 when they first released in August 2019 was that top-tier price point of £219, which prevented them from being a viable option for those on a moderate budget. Well, thanks to Amazon, that’s not such a problem anymore. 

As our 5-star review explains, there’s an awful lot to like about these headphones – from the industry-leading noise cancellation and compatibility with both Google’s virtual assistant and Amazon’s Alexa to the proximity sensors that detect when the earbuds have been taken out your ears. And that’s not to mention the stellar sound quality.

At the time, our reviewer wrote: “The Sony WF-1000XM3 true wireless buds follow in the footsteps of their larger sibling, the WH-1000XM3 headphones. They are, quite simply, the best noise-cancelling earphones and headphones on the market. The earbuds offer a fun sound signature, a stable wireless connection and have ample amounts of battery life.”

For your money you don’t just get a pair of earbuds either. You’ll also get a charging case, which can provide your headphones with three additional 8-hour charges as well as safe housing when not in use. 

These cracking headphones are available in both black and white, however do note that a set in white will set you back an extra £9 (£174) – which we still view as a bargain price for such a fantastic product. 

So, if you’re looking for a new set of wireless headphones this winter to help make tough gym sessions or long commutes a bit more bearable, then you really can’t afford to miss this deal.
