Head over to Amazon right now and you’ll find that the best-selling Sony WH1000XM3 wireless noise cancelling headphones are listed at the regular price of $348. They’re worth every penny, of course, but regular BGR Deals readers know that there’s a much better option available — pick up the international version of Sony’s WH1000XM3 headphones instead, and you’ll save a whopping $100.
It’s a terrific deal that’s almost always available on Amazon if you know where to look. But if you’re in the market for new premium ANC headphones, we recommend taking a moment before you pull the trigger. Why? Because Bose’s latest and greatest wireless noise cancelling cans now have a similar deal for the first time ever!
It’s not quite as deep as the discount on Sony’s headphones, but the Bose Headphones 700 wireless noise cancelling headphones that cost a buck under $400 in stores are down to $364 if you pick up the international version right now at Amazon. What’s the difference between this version and the regular one sold in the US, you ask? In terms of the headphones themselves, the answer is nothing. The only difference is you get a 1-year warranty with the seller (the well-known shop Abe’s Electronics Center) instead of with Bose. It has the same coverage and it’s through a well-known retailer, so why not save some cash?
