Apple’s AirPods Pro active noise cancelling true wireless earbuds are on sale right now over at Amazon, and our readers have been buying them up by the hundreds. It’s easy to see why, of course, since they’re down to Black Friday’s all-time low price on Amazon. That means there has literally never been a better time to buy a pair of these wildly popular earbuds. That said, if you’re not married to the idea of getting Apple earphones, there’s a much better deal that you should check out before it disappears.

The Sony WF1000XM3 true wireless noise cancelling earbuds are actually less expensive at full retail than Apple’s discounted AirPods Pro. Apple fans are obviously used to paying the “Apple tax” to get the best possible user experience but when it comes to cord-free ANC earphones, that’s actually not the case. Personal audio experts and headphones reviewers largely agree that the Sony buds are superior to AirPods Pro in terms of sound quality, design, and noise cancellation technology. In other words, the Sony WF1000XM3 earphones are better than AirPods Pro in literally every single way that matters most.

Amazon was running a sale last week on Sony WF1000XM3 wireless earbuds that slashed the price from $228 down to $198. That matches Black Friday’s sale price from last year, so it’s obviously a fantastic deal. The bad news for anyone looking to pick up a pair is that deal is now done. But the good news is an even better opportunity just popped up and you can take advantage if you hurry.

Head over to Amazon right now and you’ll find Sony WF1000XM3 ANC cord-free earbuds on sale for just $119 if you pick them up renewed. That’s the lowest price of all time at Amazon, and it’s a truly incredible value for what are arguably the best active noise cancelling earphones on the planet.

If you’re worried about buying these earbuds renewed, rest assured that you really shouldn’t be. As it notes on the Amazon page, “Renewed products work and look like new. These pre-owned products have been inspected and tested by Amazon-qualified suppliers. Box and accessories may be generic. All Renewed products come with the 90-day Amazon Renewed Guarantee.” In other words, they’re guaranteed to work and look like new or you can return them with 90 days for a full refund, no questions asked. That’s a terrific policy but trust us: after you hear how incredible these earphones sound, you’re definitely not going to want to return them. Supply is limited though, and once these earphones sell out there’s no telling when or even if they’ll be back in stock at this price.
