Rare price drop on the top-rated Sony WH-1000XM5
The Sony WH-1000XM5 cans are among the best headphones on the market, especially if your focus is on noise canceling capabilities. Walmart currently has one model of the Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones on sale for just $324.99 — a deal price we’ve almost never tracked on the headset.
Sony knows how popular the Sony WH-1000XM5 is and rarely drops the price by more than $50, if at all. This deal is from a reputable third-party seller via Walmart on the Midnight Blue variant of the headphones. The fact that only this colorway is on sale suggests to us that stock may be very limited.
The exceptional active noise canceling (ANC) capabilities of the Sony WH-1000XM5 make them ideal for various settings like commuting, office work, and city life. Comfort is another strong suit, thanks to the soft-fit leatherette ear cups designed to accommodate larger ears. The headphones also offer intuitive controls through a capacitive touch panel on the right ear cup, allowing for easy volume and track adjustments. There are a host of other nice features too, including Find My Device support for Android users. Battery life is impressive, lasting up to 31 hours with ANC on, and quick charging provides 180 minutes of playback in just three minutes. The headphones also support high-bitrate Bluetooth audio codecs like LDAC.
While we can’t be sure, our intuition is that this Sony WH-1000XM5 deal is going to sell out quickly for the reasons outlined above. Hit the widget to learn more about the offer.
