Sony's WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones hit an all-time-low $228

David Carnoy/CNET

If you're looking for top-shelf noise-canceling headphones and can't decide between the Bose QuietComfort 35 II and Sony WH-1000XM3, this deal might sway you in favor of the latter. For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon has the Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones for £228, the lowest price we've seen to date. List price: £350. Update: Wow, that did not last long; the headphones are now up to £278.

Last October, CNET's David Carnoy declared the WH-1000XM3 the "noise-canceling headphone to beat." Although the rival Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have since arrived, they're definitely not worth an extra £171.

If you're new to these kinds of cans (slang for over-the-ear headphones), you'll want to check out our roundup of the best noise-canceling headphones of 2019, followed by Carnoy's Sony WH-1000XM3 review. Granted, we may see an even better deal as Black Friday approaches, but if you don't want to wait, it's hard to argue with all-time-low pricing you can get right now. Note: Originally published earlier this year.
