Want a great pair of noise-canceling headphones that can completely block any background chatter and make you feel like you’re in your own little universe? Amazon just dropped the price on the iconic Sony WH-1000XM3 Bluetooth Headphones down to their all-time lowest price.

Right now, you can snag these noise-canceling beauties for just $248, or $102 off, as part of the retailer’s ‘deal of the day.’ This is even cheaper than they were on Black Friday.

But act fast and shop now, this sale expires at the end of the day.

Long battery life

Sony really did it up by giving these headphones 30 hours of battery life. And if you’re in a rush you can get five hours of use on a 10-minute charge. Smart control touch sensors are built into the ear cups, which by the way are extremely plush and comfortable.

“As someone who owns Bose noise-cancelling headphones, these new headphones have blown me away,” writes a five-star Amazon reviewer. “The noise cancelling is a noticeable step up from the QC35, I currently have. It's light (a tad heavier than the Bose), comfortable (I usually can't stand having most headphones on for a long time as my ears tend to get sore—no issues three hours in with this pair), and have a sound quality that blows the Bose or any other noise cancelling headphones I've tried out of the water.”

Compact and smart

Meanwhile, these Sony headphones are also lighter than previous models so you’ll barely realize you’re wearing them. And thanks to a ‘swivel and fold’ design, they tuck neatly into an included carrying case for easy travel or stowaway.

You can also sync these Sony wireless headphones via the companion smartphone app to bring in more or less ambient noise. This pair also comes with quick access to your smartphone’s voice assistant, including Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. The headphones adjust to your personal situation too, optimizing the sound based on your head size, hair and if you’re wearing glasses. Cool.

“Being able to cup the right headphone to pause the noise cancelling to listen to people talking to you without taking off the headphones is a pretty cool feature,” the reviewer continues.

Bottom line

At $248 (was $350), these Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Bluetooth Headphones are still considered the gold standard, while they also deliver outstanding audio with crisp and clear quality and deep bass. They’re designed for long-lasting comfort with unbelievable noise-canceling to block just about all background and ambient noise. Now you can enjoy all your favorite music and podcasts in peace and sleek style.

“I’m impressed. The sound quality is excellent and the noise canceling is great. I use them for music and television and to block out my loud neighbors. For these tasks the Sonys are outstanding,” shares a satisfied Amazon shopper.

The Sony headphones—which are available in black or silver—come with a handy carrying case, a 3.5mm wired headphone cable, USB-A-to-USB-C charging cable and airplane adapter.

This one-day sale is music to our ears!
