You don’t need to wait until late November to score a great Black Friday deal. Retailers are already offering big discounts on best-selling products. And we’ve just spotted a deal on a set of Sony noise-cancelling headphones that sounds very good.
Right now, the Sony WH-XB910N Wireless Headphones on sale for $123 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s 50% off compared to its full retail price of $249. It’s also the lowest price we’ve seen on these headphones. Best Buy (opens in new tab) has the same low price.
This discount was previously available during Amazon Prime Day 2022 back in July. Both the black and blue colors are available at this discounted price.
At Tom’s Guide, we’re big fans of Sony headphones, and while this specific model hasn’t made our ranking of the best headphones you can buy, there are still plenty of reasons to consider a purchase at this heavily discounted price.
For starters, the Sony WH-XB910N headphones offer strong noise cancelling, which makes them an ideal pick for commuting, working in a public space or when you want to zone out and focus on your favorite music. The extra bass creates a deep and punchy soundscape, although some reviews do suggest the bass levels might be a little too heavy.
These Sony Bluetooth headphones shine when it comes to battery life with 30 hours of rated playback on a single charge. That should get you through multiple days without needing to reach for a charger. And when you do need a top-up, just 10-minutes of charging will give you an additional 4 and half hours of playback, which is extremely handy when you don’t have time to fully charge up.
The ability to pair the headphones with two devices at once is also appreciated, and switching between the two with the touch of a button is almost effortless. This function can be combined with the easy hands-free calling features, allowing you to quickly switch between listening to music and taking important calls in seconds. The built-in Google Assistant and Alexa support are also worth mentioning for when you want to control the headphones without lifting a finger.
This isn’t the only epic audio deal we’ve spotted in Amazon’s early Black Friday deals. For example, the excellent Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones have been slashed by $80. These are just some of the can’t-miss savings that will be available in the run-up to the holidays.
So, make sure to keep it locked to our Tom’s Guide Black Friday live blog for all the big sales on TVs, headphones, laptops and more.
