The WH-1000XM5 are Sony's premium noise-cancelling headphones. They feature large, over-ear cushions, excellent active noise cancellation, and up to 40 hours of battery life, or up to 30 hours with ANC enabled. <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Walmart is also selling the WH-1000XM5 for $348.

We rank the Sony WH-1000XM5 as the best noise cancelling headphones on the market. Yes, the Bose 700 headphones have the best active noise cancelling we've tested. But the differences are pretty minimal for everyone but the biggest of audiophiles, and the Sony WH-1000XM5's longer battery life will give them a slight edge for most people.

The Sony WH-1000XM5 take the crown for the best headphones on the market, too. Seriously, they're that good. The XM5s offer an excellent, full-bodied sound, and you can customize sound profiles in the free Sony Headphones app.

If you're working in a noisy home or office, you'll also appreciate that the Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones are great when it comes to voice calls. The XM5s have eight mics to aid with noise cancellation, but it also means your voice will sound clear as a bell. Wind noise is also kept to a minimum, perfect if you're walking and talking. 

As a bonus, the headphones and packaging are almost entirely made of recycled materials, so these headphones are a little better for the planet.

We can't recommend these headphones enough now that they've fallen to their lowest ever price. After all, never having to listen to a crying baby on a plane again is almost priceless. But if you're still not convinced? Check out our headphone deals coverage for more sales.
