Black Friday pricing has hit Sony's popular WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones, knocking $100 off the over-ear headset at Amazon, Best Buy and B&H.
Sony resellers Amazon, Best Buy and B&H are currently offering the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones for $248 during the early Black Friday price war. Typically retailing for $350, the WH-1000XM4 have some of the best active noise cancellation available, and they have high-quality audio and extra features to boot (like voice assist functionality compatible with Siri via the iPhone app).
We've used this headset on a daily basis for most of 2021 in both a business and entertainment setting. According to Best Buy, Black Friday prices are guaranteed on the headphones for Best Buy Totaltech and My Best Buy members.
While the headphones don't match the luxurious design of AirPods Max, which are at least $180 more, Sony tweaked the design to make this iteration feel more premium than its predecessors. The cans support Sony's 360-degree audio for compatible tracks, and the headphones can change the noise-canceling mode depending on your location. The companion app includes a customizable equalizer and various audio effects.
The headphones include a full-sized case and an audio cable in the box. They charge via USB-C.
