CHEAP: These Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-cancelling headphones are a steal right now

Welcome to CHEAP, our brand-new series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!

Looking for a new pair of noise-cancelling headphones to drown out the morning commute? Well, I’ve got some good news. The obscenely good Sony WH-1000XM3 cans are currently on sale on Amazon UK for £277.49 . If you’re quick, you can save about £52 off the usual ticket price of £330.

The super-comfortable Sony WH-1000XM3 is often compared to the Bose QuietComfort 35 II, and for good reason. Its noise-cancelling technology is industry-leading, and can nullify the hum of any noisy office. It’s got a battery life of 30 hours, which will last even the longest flights. And should you run out of juice, its quick-charging feature lets you get a further five hours of playback in just ten minutes. Oh, and it supports Amazon Alexa.

TNW reviewed the Sony WH-1000MX3 last year , and we were impressed. Napier Lopez wrote that the noise cancellation was “ freakishly good ,” and unlike cheaper ANC cans, didn’t interfere with the sound quality that much.

Are they cheap? Arguably not. £277.49 is a lot of money. But are they good value? Without a shadow of a doubt. We’re not bullshitting when we say the WH-1000MX3s are some of the best headphones money can buy.

If you’re tempted, you can pick up a pair here . Qualifying Amazon Prime customers can also pay for it in installations of £55.50, should you find the upfront cost a bit too much to bear.
