Sony's cult-fave noise-cancelling headphones are over $70 off for Memorial Day: 'Heaven'

·2-min read

Distracting housemates. Chatty coworkers. Shouting kids. What do you do when your world gets too noisy? You could hang a big "Do Not Disturb!" sign around your neck. Nah, too dorky. You could boldly shush everyone around you? Too rude. Turn it up and tune out? Yes, that's doable! Curate your very own soundscape with an awesome pair of noise-canceling headphones. It sounds like a splurge, but it needn't be: For Memorial Day, Amazon has dropped the iconic Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones down to $278 (was $350).

Sony has blessed these wireless headphones with a glorious 30 hours of battery life. That's huge. Smart control touch sensors are built into the super-cushy ear cups.

When you need a quick juicing up, you can get five more hours off a little 10-minute charge. And Amazon shoppers say the cans sound heavenly.

"I can't say enough good things about these. Honestly, it's like Baby Jesus singing to you in heaven," raved a five-star reviewer. "Imagine if you will, Aaron Neville and Alison Krauss had a baby, and that baby grew up to be a singer, this is what these headphones sound like. Crystal-clear, complete noise-cancelling, deep bass, customizable equalizer in the iPhone app, 30 hours of battery life, super-fast charging and comfortable!"

The airy Sony headphones are so light, you may forget you’re wearing them. And thanks to a "swivel and fold" design, they tuck neatly into a carrying case when you're on the move.

You can sync the headphones via the companion smartphone app to adjust ambient noise levels. They will also sync to Google Assistant and Alexa. And get this: These adaptable headphones will even optimize sound for you based on your head size, your hair and whether or not you’re wearing glasses.

"...I was very surprised and pleased with how light this headphones were," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "Because of the lightness and the feel, it's very comfortable. They're also glasses compatible, as in you don't need to put your glasses in a weird position to wear them..."

Down to $278, these Sony headphones come with a carrying case, a 3.5mm wired headphone cable, a USB-A to USB-C cable and an airplane adapter.

Between their huge battery life, fast-charging functions and the super-comfy feeling, you'll never want to take these headphones off.
