There’s something about wearing noise-canceling headphones that adds an air of superiority. Once you put them, you’re saying “Don’t talk to me,” which is ideal for long train commutes or crowded flights. And not to sound like an elitist, but listening to music with wired headphones just doesn’t compare. For that, you’ll want the best of the best.
When Sony released their Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones, music lovers went nuts and with good reason. These are the best noise-canceling headphones we’ve ever tested, and we cannot rave about them enough. Even better, right now, you can get them for the lowest price we’ve ever seen (yes, lower than Prime Day) at Drop.
Typically, these bad boys are pretty pricey at $350, but you can snag them for just $280 at Drop. That’s $70 in savings and $20 less than the price we saw on Prime Day. It’s literally the best price we’ve ever seen and insane deal for anyone who wants to zone out with music or their favorite podcast.
Why are these Sony headphones so superior? Well, for one they outperformed the oh-so-popular Bose Quiet Comfort 35 Series II in the noise-cancellation department thanks to a feature called “Adaptive Sound Control.” These headphones are actually smart enough to detect your surroundings and adjust the level of active noise-cancellation (or ANC) accordingly, whether you’re walking down the street or trying to drown out office chatter. You can adjust ambient sound settings yourself through Sony’s Headphones Connect app.
The Sony WH-1000XM3 is also completely touch-controlled, so you can simply tap the headset to pause your music while ordering your coffee instead of taking them off. You can also enable “Quick Attention” mode by placing your hand over the earcup, so you can communicate without taking off your headphones. Pretty nifty, right?
To get access to this incredible deal, you do need to make an account with Drop—but it’s free and will only take a few seconds of your time. Word to the wise: This deal only goes until Friday, July 26, and Drop has a limited number of units, so I would act sooner than later. These headphones also won’t ship until August 13, meaning you’ll have to wait a little for these impeccable headphones, but for this deal, we think it’s worth it.
