Amazon Prime Day is still going and the already-discounted Sony Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise Cancelling Headphones have been slashed even further.
We haven’t exactly been subtle about our love of the XM3’s headphones here at Gizmodo. Both the U.S. and Aussie teams alike froth them because of its ridiculous sound and noise cancelling capabilities, quick charge USB-C and just how damn comfy they are.
While the new 1000XM4’s are now out in market, the XM3 headphones are still and incredible buy. You still get superb sound and noise cancellation, USB-C, a ton of battery life (including quick charge) and they’re super comfy. There’s a reason these have been a favourite for years.
In fact, I would argue they’re still the better buy than the XM4s. Don’t get me wrong, the shiny new cans are hot. But the improvements are largely incremental. Everything that truly matters about these line of headphones you can get in the XM3s.
Considering these things are two years old and still that far ahead of the curve says a hell of a lot. And they still work just as well as they did on day one.
Sony WH1000XM3 wireless noise cancelling headphones deal
The MX3’s still can still retail for over $400, though you can now get a pair on sale from Amazon for just $277. Yesterday they were at $299 so if you missed out then, please enjoy an even better deal.
While they aren’t cheap, cans this good are absolutely worth it in my humble opinion. I still use them daily for work and commuting, and they’re always in my carry-on for long haul flights. Well, they used to be.
Seriously the WH1000XM3 headphones are a buy.
