Sony has plenty of headphones and earbuds to shout about, but we think the WF-C700N wireless earbuds are the absolute pick of the litter.
The affordable noise-cancelling buds won our overall Product of the Year Award in the wireless headphones category, meaning we were pretty fond of them to start with. Now, though, you can now save 25% this Cyber Monday, with the price dropping to £75 on Amazon thanks to an initial Black Friday sales drop. Bargain!
We also love the premium WF-1000XM5 earbuds (which are down from £259 to £219 at Amazon), as well as the over-ear, noise-cancelling WH-1000XM5 down from £380 to £279 at Amazon). For the ultimate Cyber Monday wireless earbuds bargain, though, we think it's the more affordable C700s that take the crown.

If great sound and great value are what you want from your wireless earbuds, then look no further than the Sony WF-C700N. Already superb value, this saving makes them worthy of an impulse purchase. And you don't have to have them in sage green; black, white and lavender options are also available.
What Hi-Fi? Awards 2023 Product of the Year winner.
If you want the best of all worlds – sound quality, features and an affordable price – the WF-C700N are pretty much unbeatable.
They're lightweight, extremely well made and, say it quietly, actually a bit more comfortable and easy to live with than the much more expensive but chunkier Sony WF-1000XM5.
Better yet, they're absolutely crammed with features. They have active noise-cancelling and, following an update, now include Bluetooth Multipoint. Adaptive Sound Control automatically switches listening modes depending on your location, while Sony's DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales low-res digital audio files to higher quality.
IPX4 water resistance means the WF-C700N are protected against water splashing from any angle so they should make for fine gym buddies or equally be at home in the great outdoors.
When it comes to battery life, the earbuds should be good for seven and a half hours of playtime on a single charge with BT and ANC turned on (this rises to ten with ANC off). We think that’s perfectly acceptable at this level.
And the WF-C700N really do deliver great sound for their price. As we said in our review, the C700N offer a "refined presentation for the money" alongside a "detailed, dynamic and musical sound". Happy days.
