The Sony WH-1000XM4 are still among some of the best wireless headphones you can buy, and now they're getting a little long in the tooth, you'll find the price of a pair is regularly dropping.

Discounts are what this page is all about. We've rounded up all the best Sony WH-1000XM4 deals below, and with so many sales events throughout the year, there's an excellent chance you'll be able to save money on these fantastic, five-star headphones.

The WH-1000XM5 are successors to the XM4, but they are pricier which means the XM4 still remain a superb buy and you're more likely to find a pair with a big discount. Consider it time to bag yourself a bargain...

The WH-1000XM4 over-ears boast a comfy design, good call quality and Multipoint Bluetooth. They're comfortable enough for all-day listening and offer a few new neat features. For example, they activate pass-through mode as you start talking (so you can hear what the other person is saying). They can automatically pause the music when you take them off and restart it when you put them back on. 

The 30-hour battery life is very healthy for a pair of high-end wireless headphones, and the noise-cancelling is still very competitive at this level.

Sonic performance is a big upgrade compared to the older WH-1000XM3 and they sound better than rivals including the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. The XM4 soundstage is wide and unearths loads of detail, and they're composed and confident when it comes to low frequencies. Dynamic shifts are handled with aplomb, and they have plenty of enthusiasm for every genre you care to listen to.

The WH-1000XM5, which arrived in May 2022, are even better yet – they boast a new design and the ability to expose greater detail – but the XM4 remain a truly outstanding buy at the price.
