• Apple’s AirPods Pro are by far the most popular active noise cancelling earbuds on the market right now, but that doesn’t necessarily make them the best.
  • Instead, many experts agree that Sony’s WF-1000XM3 True Wireless ANC Earbuds offer superior sound quality as well as better noise cancelling performance.
  • Both options cost around the same amount, but Amazon is running a deal right now on renewed WF-1000XM3 earphones that slashes the price all the way down to just $139.99.

There’s really no question whatsoever that Apple’s AirPods Pro are the best-selling true wireless earbuds out there with active noise cancelling (ANC) technology. In fact, we sincerely doubt that any other cord-free ANC earbuds even come close to selling as well as Apple’s. They’re fantastic headphones and if you want a pair, now is a great time to pick them up because they’re on sale at Amazon at the lowest price ever. On the other hand, if you don’t mind going with a less trendy brand, you won’t believe the killer deal Amazon is offering right now on Sony earbuds that are actually even better.

Sony WF-1000XM3 True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earbuds are widely regarded as the best in the business, offering superior sound quality and even better ANC technology than AirPods Pro, plus many people find them to be even more comfortable to wear. As is almost always the case though, the best comes at a price and Sony’s awesome ANC earbuds are almost as expensive as AirPods Pro.

WF-1000XM3 retail for $230 and that’s what you’ll pay if you pick up a new pair right now on Amazon or from any other retailer that carries them. Before you do that, however, there’s another option you really should check out. Head over to Amazon right now and you’ll find renewed Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds on sale for just $139.99! That’s an all-time low price by a fairly wide margin, and they’re guaranteed to look and function like new or you can return them within 90 days for a full refund. That’s a crazy deal that you definitely don’t want to miss, but inventory is obviously limited so grab a pair now before it’s too late.

Here are the key details from Amazon:

  • 24bit Audio signal processing delivers dramatically improved sound quality
  • Battery life up to 24 hours with carrying case (with 10min quick charge for 90min of play time)
  • Truly wireless design with uninterrupted L/R simultaneous Bluetooth transmission
  • Alexa enabled for voice access to music, information, and more. Activate with a simple touch.
  • Smart listening by adaptive sound control automatically switches to ambient sound mode based on your activity

Of note, if you want to spend even less money you can get a brand new pair of $200 Sony WF-1000XBM1 ANC earbuds for just $91. That’s no typo… $91!
