While Black Friday isn’t quite the super-saving event it used to be, those looking for high-end headphones at bargain prices are in luck.
It’s no secret that Sony makes some of the best headphones you can buy and they consistently top our charts for different types of cans. If you’ve been holding out to get a new pair then it was a wise move as the XM5 and XM4 models are now cheaper than ever before.
Black Friday has come up with the goods and you can get the WH-1000XM5 (that’s the latest generation of over ear) headphones for just £290.68 saving you £89.32. In the US, they are $299 ($49 off) making these the lowest price seen to date.
We gave the Sony WH-1000XM5 a rare 5/5 star review.
If it’s wireless earbuds you want then you haven’t been left out. The latest generation WF-1000XM4 are cheaper than ever at £159, saving you £91 and in the US they are $178 ($101.99 off) – again, the lowest prices seen before.
In our review, we gave the Sony WF-1000XM4 an excellent score of 5/5.
Going for an older model can be a great way of saving money, too. The performance and features don’t tend to change a whole lot year by year but you can save big.
The WH-1000XM4 aren’t at their lowest ever price in the UK but Amazon has a solid price of £219 and they are just $228 in the US, which is a new low.
Still not sure? There are plenty of headphone deals available this Black Friday. See below or check our guide to the best headphones deals for Black Friday.
Our favourite wireless earbuds are now cheaper than ever before thanks to this Amazon deal. Get them while you can.

Bose QuietComfort 45
The latest flagship over-ear headphones from Bose are now under £260 with this tasty discount. We rated them 8/10 in our review.

Amazon Echo Buds (2nd gen)
From: Amazon UK
Amazon’s second-gen true wireless earbuds are smaller, better-sounding and have active noise cancellation. If you want Alexa in your ears, they’re a top buy. Read our Echo Buds (2nd gen) review for more info.
Yes, these have been surpassed by Sony’s WH-1000XM5, but the changes are largely incremental and these are among the absolute best over-ear noise-cancelling headphones you can buy.
You can get the same price at Sony, Currys, John Lewis and Argos.
