Looking for a door-busting Cyber Monday headphones deal on a pair of wireless noise-cancellers? How about our favourite ever pair? Well, then you're in luck: the new Sony WH-1000XM4 are now 20 per cent off at Amazon (opens in new tab). Normally $350, they're currently down to just $278.

Other retailers are following Amazon's lead with this Cyber Monday price drop, including Best Buy (opens in new tab) and Crutchfield (opens in new tab).

If the WH-1000XM4s are still out of your budget after discount, their predecessors, the Sony WH1000XM3, are also on sale for $220 at Amazon (opens in new tab) – that's $130 off the MSRP and $60 less than the next cheapest Cyber Monday price (at Kohls (opens in new tab)). These were holding steady at $230 over Black Friday, so this extra $10 is most welcome. These Sonys are also class leaders at their price, so while you won't be getting the newest pair out there, you'll still be getting one of the very best.

Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones: $350 $278 at Amazon
(opens in new tab)Sony’s premium wireless headphones deliver a sonic masterclass: they're richly detailed, enjoyably dynamic and have a natural knack for timing and rhythms. Nothing really lets them down either – battery life, build, comfort and usability are all great.

The five-star What Hi-Fi? Award-winning WH-1000XM4 are not only Sony's latest premium wireless noise-cancelling headphones but the best the firm has made. With a winning combination of stunning sound, 30-hour battery life, intuitive controls and adjustable noise-cancelling, they're tough to beat – especially now they're on the end of a $70 saving,

The XM4 are as comfortable as their predecessor (the cheaper, also discounted WH-1000XM3) and introduce new useful features that elevate the user experience (such as ‘Speak to Chat’, which allows you to talk to someone while the headphones are still on your head).

More importantly, you’re getting a decent hike in sound quality over the XM3. The sense of musicality and enthusiasm remains as addictive as ever here, but you can also hear big improvements over the XM3 across the board. That's partly down to the introduction of a brand new sound processor, the DSEE Extreme engine, that upscales compressed music to near hi-res quality with the help of artificial intelligence. In short, they deliver a sonic masterclass.

Of course, $278 (opens in new tab) is still a serious chunk of change, but if you have the cash to splash you certainly won't be disappointed with the WH-1000XM4.
