We know it’s pretty tough to find a good pair of headphones from a great brand at a stellar price. But sometimes we get lucky and a big name drops the price on a primo pair. Case in point: The wireless Sony WH-CH710N Noise-Canceling Headphones, which are on sale for $98, or $82 off, at Amazon. Hang on, we're gonna do the math....whoa, that’s nearly half off!

Originally priced at $180, these wireless headphones feature the crisp and clear audio you’d come to expect from a premier brand like Sony. Best of all, this is just about the wallet-friendliest way to get premium noise-canceling — i.e., Sony’s Dual Noise Sensor Technology that blocks out nearly all background and ambient sound. Gone are the days of air conditioner humming and washing machine tumbling encroaching on your jams; from here on it’ll just be you and your music.
"The Sony headphones are perfect. They sync easily and the sound is clear," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "The noise-canceling feature is great and often annoys my wife and kids when I can't hear them. [How's that for a fringe benefit?] These are very comfortable and I haven't had an issue with the ear pads (keeps the ears warm during the cold winter months). The charging is quick and the battery life is very good."
Sony’s Touch Sensor controls make it easy to play, pause, skip tracks, control volume and more with just a tap or swipe on the right ear cup. You can even answer calls with a tap when paired to a smartphone via Bluetooth.
In short, if you’re looking for a great pair of brand-name wireless noise-canceling headphones, the Sony WH-CH710N Wireless Headphones are a great midrange pick. They come in black and blue — the latter is exclusive to Amazon — and have a battery life of up to 35 hours.
"I love these headphones," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "The sound quality is great, the app lets you set your own levels or use a variety of presets, the battery life is amazing and, paired with a good case, you can't beat them for the money. In my opinion, they sound way better than Beats and at the lower price the noise cancelation is close to the Bose.... If you are budget-minded like I am, you will appreciate these headphones."

Thousands of civil servants are to be encouraged to add pronouns to their email sign-offs under plans for a transgender inclusivity drive, despite a backlash from staff. The Scottish Government is backing proposals that would ask its 8,000 workers to take a “pronoun pledge” under which they would add terms reflecting their gender identity, such as she/her or he/him, to signatures at the bottom of every work email. Some people who class themselves as non-binary prefer pronouns such as they/them,

Labour Party moderates have seized control of key leadership positions in London after ousting a number of Jeremy Corbyn supporters.

The overhaul signals a major transfer of power from left-wingers who backed Jeremy Corbyn’s premiership to progressives supporting Sir Keir Starmer.
