The brand new Sony WH-1000XM4 were announced last week and though they improved on some things that bothered Sony WH-1000XM3 owners, they didn’t take away from how amazing the XM3 models still are in 2020. If you want an excellent pair of noise canceling headphones (for work-from-home now and travel later), this is the pair and deal you want to check out!

The Sony WH-1000XM3 were the head-to-head competitor of the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II. Having used both, I can say that I definitely liked the Sony headphones better. There were a couple of ways that the Bose edged out the Sony (like in the fit around the neck when not in use), but, overall, the Sony headphones are better (it is not just me that says that – many tech gurus concur).
While refurbs have been as low as $179 for the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones, this is the first time I have seen a straight-up new price of $249. Yes, this is because the new XM4 headphones occupy the previous retail price of the XM3 ($349) but I don’t think this will be the new price for the XM3. They will probably sit at or around $299.
Anyway, if you are interested in getting a great set of noise canceling headphones, this is the pair and deal for you!
