Best Buy is also offering the Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds at an all-time low price of $128. Boasting fantastic audio performance, excellent noise cancellation, lengthy battery life, and a slick design you won't want to miss this early Black Friday audio deal. 

In Sony WF-1000XM3 review, we called it “a true wireless triumph that successfully combines stellar sonics with impressive noise cancellation. A plethora of features and solid battery life also elevate its status among the elite.” In fact, we were so impressed with the buds we awarded them an editor’s choice recommendation. 

It’s not hard to see why, either. The Sony WF-1000XM3 is excellent for listening to music while traveling or exercising, although the poor call quality makes them less useful for remote workers. However, don’t let that put you off as the earbuds are a winner in almost all other areas. 

It’s the lengthy battery life that impressed us most. We managed to get 6 hours of use from the Sony WF-1000XM3 with noise-canceling switched on, and 8 hours with it turned off. Plus, the included charging case offers a further three complete charges, so you’ll have plenty of battery when you need it most. For comparison, Apple’s flagship AirPods Pro only offers 4.5 hours of battery on a single charge.

In our testing, we were also pleasantly surprised with just how useful the free Sony Headphones app was. This application allows you to truly personalize your listening experience, and if you opt for a pair of WF-1000XM3s it’s a must-download. 

The Sony WF-1000XM3 is an excellent choice for anyone who never leaves the house without music in their ears, and this deal just makes them an even easier recommendation. If you’re not completely sold check out our best wireless earbuds rankings for some alternative picks.
