Update Nov 28: This Sony headphone deal has ended at Amazon and Best Buy, but there's still stock at Walmart where they are currently discounted to $239. 

There are some great Cyber Monday headphone deals around on many popular noise-canceling models right now. But few discounts are as big as the one I've found on Sony's ever popular WH-1000XM4 headphones. 

Right now, the Sony WH-1000XM4 are just $228 at Amazon, which is an incredible $120 off. That's the lowest ever price I've seen them at since Cyber Monday 2022. Similar deals can be found at Best Buy and Walmart.

More than a year after being superseded by the current Sony WH-1000XM5 flagship, the WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones continue to be as popular as ever among discerning headphone buyers, and it's easy to understand why. The XM4 was a long running choice for the best headphones on the market, and our Sony WH-1000XM4 review had almost nothing but praise for these noise-canceling cans.

We found that the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones produced a detailed and dynamic soundstage. High and middle-ranged frequencies were well-balanced and there was plenty of bass energy to carry beats. If you're like me though and love to tinker with EQ settings, there's plenty of flexibility in the Headphones app to adjust the output exactly to your liking and get even better sound. Support for 360 Reality Audio, LDAC and DSEE Extreme are all included, which makes them as well-equipped as the model that replaced them.

The Sony WH-1000XM4 don’t outclass the very best noise-cancelling headphones around right now, but they are still excellent when it comes to blocking outside noise. Travel noise, wind and other distractions were completely reduced in our tests. Plus, there are 20 levels of ambient sound to choose from if you prefer to stay aware of sounds around you while you listen to music.

The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones also offer good battery life. We got 30 hours of playtime with ANC on, or 38 hours with ANC off. A 10-minute quick charge netted us 5 hours of listening time.

If you’re interested in the Sony WH-1000XM5, check out our Sony WH-1000XM5 vs. WH-1000XM4 face-off to see how both these headphones stack up. In short, the XM5s offer slightly longer battery life, improved sound quality and ANC. But for $228, the XM4 headphones are a seriously good value.
