The Sony WH-1000XM4 are some of the best headphones you can buy – and that's at full price. If you can bag the XM4 at a discount, you're going to get better value than ever.

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

Sony has recently unveiled the WH-1000XM5 – successors to the XM4 – but the XM4 remain a superb buy. Now, here's where to bag yourself a bargain...

The WH-1000XM4 over-ears boast a comfy design, souped-up audio chip, good call quality and simultaneous pairing. 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 excellent thanks to the killer combination of a new noise-cancelling algorithm and Bluetooth System on Chip (SoC).

Sonic performance is a big upgrade compared to the older XM3s. The XM4 soundstage is wider, unearthing more detail, and they're more 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 XM5, 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.
