The Sony WH-1000XM5 returns to its Black Friday price at $328
There’s no product for which we’re more on high deal alert than the Sony WH-1000XM5. The market-leading wireless headphones are a favorite of ours and many other audiophiles, but the $400 retail price makes them no small investment. Amazon just stepped in to help on that front, with an 18% price drop that reduces them to their Black Friday sale price.
The best headphones you can buy have only once been cheaper than this on Amazon, and only for one day. They’re best known for their imperious ANC performance, significantly reducing ambient noise and making them ideal for focused listening in noisy environments. A lightweight build at only 250g and soft-fit leatherette ear cups ensure a high degree of comfort.
Control is intuitive, with a capacitive touch panel on the right ear cup for easy access to various functions. Connectivity options include Bluetooth with support for LDAC, AAC, and SBC codecs, although aptX support is not available. The battery life is impressive, with up to 31 hours with ANC on and even more when ANC is off. The headphones also feature a high-quality microphone array, making them excellent for calls.
