Amazon's Big Smile Sale has already thrown up excellent savings on its wireless Echo Buds, Echo Show 8 smart speaker and Yamaha soundbars  – and now you can add Sennheiser wireless headphones to that list.

Right now, you can save 50 per cent on the Sennheiser HD 450SE. The wireless noise-cancelling headphones launched just last year at AU$299, but for a limited time only, you can chuck them in your Amazon shopping basket for only AU$149.

The HD 450SE ('Special Edition') are Amazon-exclusive versions that add Alexa voice control integration over the standard HD 450 model (which, actually, are currently pricier than this better-featured pair on sale).

If the AU$149 Sennheiser HD 450SE suit your budget, they are an excellent buy at this deal price, offering a great combination of features, sound quality and comfort. We know: we've reviewed them.

Wireless noise-cancelling headphones that are jam-packed with features, including Alexa voice control, a 30-hour battery and aptX Bluetooth support. At AU$149, these are an absolute steal.

Apart from adding Amazon Alexa voice assistant and only being available in a black finish, the 450SE are identical to the 450BT, which we praised for their smooth, easy-listening sonic balance, excellent (30-hour) battery life and aptX Low Latency Bluetooth support in our four-star review. Active noise-cancellation is onboard, as is compatibility with Sennheiser's control app, making them among the best featured pairs of their kind at this knockdown price.

They are a little on the bassy side compared to some of the now higher-priced competition – and they sacrifice the fifth star because of it – but all things considered, we can't help but highly recommend these Sennheisers at their AU$149 deal price.
