Amazon has slashed the price of not one but two pairs of five-star Award-winning Sony headphones – the true wireless earbuds and the over-headphones in the XM3 range.

The Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds have dropped down to just £77 at Amazon, which is £23 cheaper than they were on Black Friday and a £143 saving on their original RRP.

Prefer plush over-ear wireless headphones? The Sony WH-1000XM3 are now down to only £169.50 – a whopping £160 off the original £330 RRP.

The XM3 might have been succeeded by the 2021 XM4, but they're still great wireless earbuds. Superb sound, decent battery life and a comfy fit mean they're still earbuds to consider. Price applies to black and silver finishes.

Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones are all-round brilliant performers offering natural sound, excellent noise-cancelling and supreme comfort. They've been trumped by the 2021-released XM4 over-ears but, at this price, the XM3 are an absolute bargain. Price applies to black finish only.

Should you buy the WH-1000XM3 over-ears?

The WH-1000XM3 over-ears are 2020 What Hi-Fi? Award winners. They deliver an exceptional performance that is bolstered by truly impressive Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) to help block out outside noise.

They don't quite match the eight hours of battery life offered by their successors, the WH-1000XM4, but a run time of six hours per charge (and up to 18 hours with the charging case) remains decent. They're comfortable enough to wear all day, too.

We've seen them drop a tad lower than £179 on occasion, but this deal gets you an excellent all-round pair of wireless ANC headphones – and for a lot less than the newer XM4 model.

Should you buy the WF-1000XM3 in-ears?

It's a similar story when it comes to the WF-1000XM3 earbuds. They might not be Sony's 'latest and greatest' – that's the WF-1000M4 – but they can still go toe-to-toe with most rivals. And they're certainly the best you can buy for £77.

First and foremost, they sound great. They're crisp, vibrant, and overflowing with musicality. Plus, their active noise-cancellation helps to ground you squarely in the moment, focused on what you're listening to and not the outside world.

Outside of missing water resistance or luxury connectivity features like aptX HD support, they are a rounded package, with stellar battery life and quality build.
