If you missed the chance to pick up Sony’s beloved WH-1000XM3 noise-cancelling headphones when Newegg discounted them to $250 early last month, you have another opportunity to buy them at a compelling price. For today only, the online retailer is selling both the black and silver models for $238. Considering the WH-1000XM3 typically cost $350, this is a great opportunity to pick up some of the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy at the moment.
Engadget’s Devindra Hardawar gave the WH-1000XM3 a score of 94 when he reviewed them in 2018. They’re comfortable, well-made and feature excellent noise cancelling capabilities. Bluetooth Codec support is similarly excellent with ACC, aptX HD and LDAC all present and accounted for. But best of all, you can get up to 30 hours of music playback from them on a single charge.
That said, they’re not perfect. To start, the touch controls can be finicky. Some people also don’t like their sound profile, noting they don’t sound great if you like to listen to genres like jazz and classical. One other thing to keep in mind is that Sony is likely to refresh them at some point this year. In March, Anatel, Brazil’s version of the FCC, posted images of the M3’s successor. Most of the enhancements the M4s look like they’ll bring to the table appear to be iterative. That said, if you feel like you would have buyer’s remorse, it’s likely best to wait. On the other hand, if you don’t care about owning the latest and greatest, these will serve you well for years.
