If you know where to look then Black Friday is a great time to pick up substantial reductions on quality headphones that, despite not being the most current model, still represent excellent value for money.
Sony's WF-1000XM3 headphones might not be quite as good as their more recent (not to mention, superb) WF-1000XM4 successors, but that doesn't mean that they're not worth snapping up, especially at a deliciously discounted Black Friday price.
Currently, you can nab the WF-1000XM3 for an all-time low price of just $128 (opens in new tab) on Amazon (saving $71.99 or 36 per cent off the regular $199.99 RRP). That's even lower than their recent on-sale price of $150, making this an incredibly tempting offer for those of you on the hunt for a new pair of do-it-all in-ears.

Still one of the best wireless in-ears around, Sony's little buds pack a mighty punch, thanks to their excellent sound, decent battery life, and impressive noise cancellation.
While they don't match the eight hours of battery life offered by the newer model, a run time of six hours per charge (and up to 18 hours with the charging case) remains far from shabby, and they're comfortable enough to wear for hours on end without complaint.
Things are even better in the sound department, with exceptional performance bolstered by truly impressive Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), to help block out outside noise.
At a whopping $120 cheaper than the newer WF-1000XM4 (on sale now for $248 (opens in new tab)), this is a saving worth making.
