There’s no question whatsoever that the Sony WH1000XM3 wireless noise cancelling headphones are the best ANC headphones on the planet. Bose’s QC35 come very close in terms of sound quality — which are on sale thanks to an early Black Friday deal, by the way — but no one can touch Sony when it comes to active noise cancellation technology. That’s why the WH1000XM3 are so popular whenever they go on sale, like they did last week. Not surprisingly, they were sold out by the end of the day on Sunday and they remain sold out right now. Ready for some good news, though? We found a hidden listing on Amazon for the international version of the Sony WH1000XM3 wireless noise cancelling headphones, and they’re on sale for even less than the $278 that Amazon was charging during its early Black Friday deal! (Note that you might have to check the “other sellers” section to get the best price.)
Here are the highlights from the product page:
