Just in time for your Labor Day escapade, the headphones hailed as the best in the market have returned with an enticing price cut. Sony’s flagship WH-1000XM5 ANC headphones are currently enjoying a 13% reduction, making them available at $348, down from the standard $400. Even though they’ve previously hit a record low of $328 during Prime Day, this price is still a steal for what many consider the standout wireless headphones of 2023.
But why do these headphones command such high regard (and even on discount, a significant investment)? Our review awarded the WH-1000XM5 a remarkable score of 95, largely due to its impressive 30-hour battery span, coupled with a design revamp that, while shedding a mere 0.14 ounces, feels perceptibly lighter on the ears. This ensures maximum comfort, even during extended usage. Additionally, the M5 boasts double the processors and microphones dedicated to noise cancelation, as compared to its previous model, proving adept at silencing the typical everyday disturbances.
When it comes to delivering impeccable audio, the M5s don’t disappoint. Their 30mm carbon fiber drivers ensure a rich auditory experience, rendering a more profound depth to every track. The inclusion of DSEE Extreme further refines the sound, making only a minimal dent in overall quality. Those interested can snag the headphones at their promotional rate in classic Black or sleek Silver and immerse themselves in the unmatched audio experience.
