The new price of £210 at Amazon undercuts the previous low of £219 we saw during 2023's Black Friday. There are only eight pairs left in stock though, so don't hang around.

Read our Sony WF-1000XM5 review
The Sony WF-1000XM5 are arguably the best wireless earbuds in town at this point in time. Released as the follow-up to the superb, Award-winning WF-1000XM4 , the XM5 feature that same Sony DNA in a much more refined and sonically capable package.
As a flagship pair of earbuds, they're bursting with features. ANC is a treat, easily some of the best we've heard at this level and a genuine rival for the best-in-class Bose QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds.
Aside from flexible and effective ANC, the XM5 use Sony's DSEE upscaling to boost sound quality, while they also support Sony 360 Reality Audio, multipoint Bluetooth, Adaptive Sound Control and the very handy Speak-to-Chat feature. Even the touch controls are more flexible so you change volume and sound modes at the same time.
The real reason for snapping up the Sonys, though, is the sound they produce. Sonically, they deliver another masterclass, with a profile that is mature, refined and bursting with detail and clarity previously unheard of in wireless earbuds. It's balanced and cohesive, and the buds boast a superb sense of timing. At this price, we really are scratching our heads trying to come up with a finer-sounding alternative.
With this price drop, they're the ultimate choice at this end of the market. The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II are still great, as are the five-star QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds that replace them, but we're utterly won over by the might of the WF-1000XM5 and the new low price.
The best wireless earbuds we've tested for every budget
I love the Sony WF-1000XM5 but there’s one thing I would change (and it isn’t the noise-cancelling)
