If you're in the market for a pair of noise-canceling headphones with superb audio and comfort, Sony's WH-1000X series should definitely be on your list. The flagship headphones have been one of the top noise-canceling options on the market for years, and right now you can save big on the latest model, the Sony WH-1000XM5, which are on sale at Amazon along with a bunch of other Sony headphones and speakers. The XM5 headphones are discounted to $328 at Amazon; you can choose from black, blue, or silver models. Alternatively, you can grab the previous model, the XM4 headphones--which are still awesome--for $228 (down from $350) in black or silver.

There's a lot of great technology packed into these cans, but it's the noise-canceling features that make them one of the best around. This iteration uses what Sony calls "Auto NC Optimizer" to automatically adjust the noise-canceling function based on your wearing conditions and environment, resulting in excellent audio isolation.

Beyond that, the headset itself has a lightweight design with soft leather, the new Integrated Processor V1 provides a sumptuous range of Bluetooth-powered sound for your music-listening sessions, and its battery life can last up to 30 hours. If you're in a rush, you can easily grab a few hours of playback from just a few minutes of charging.

The other big selling feature here is the selection of touch control settings that will allow you to pause, play, skip tracks, control volume, activate your voice assistant, and answer phone calls.

As mentioned above, a bunch of other Sony audio gear is also on sale at Amazon, including more over-ear headphone models like the WH-XB910N, earbuds like the Sony LinkBuds, wireless speakers like the SRS-RA3000, and more.
