This is the ONLY Sony headphones deal you should be considering during Amazon's Big Spring Sale

I usually don't like to let my personal opinion interfere with my writing too much, but Amazon just dropped a Sony headphones deal that deserves your attention. The Sony WH-1000XM4, my favorite wireless headphones, are currently $100 off during the retailer's Big Spring Sale event with zero strings attached.

Sony WH-1000XM4:$348$248 at Amazon

Despite their age, my favorite wireless headphones remain the Sony WH-1000XM4 due to their still-great sound quality, customizable ANC settings, and overall bang for the buck. Grab a pair during Amazon's Big Spring Sale and you'll instantly get 29% off your purchase. 

The XM4 may not be the newest wireless headphones from Sony (that honor belongs to the also-great Sony WH-1000XM5), but I prefer the older cans for a few reasons.

For starters, the XM4 have a much more flexible frame, so they're easier to fold up and throw into a backpack or suitcase. Additionally, the active noise cancellation and overall sound quality are also almost indistinguishable between the two models; I've actually found that the XM4 are marginally better at blocking low ambient noise, such as that deep hum on airplanes. 

But all of that aside, I really prefer the XM4 because they're considerable cheaper than their successor. The XM5 rarely fall below $350, but thanks to the current Amazon deal, you can get the Sony WH-1000XM4 for an easy $248.

Sony WH-1000XM5:$399.99 $328 at Amazon

If you like to own the newest tech imaginable, it's worth mentioning that the Sony WH-1000XM5 are also getting a nice $72 price drop during Amazon's sale. The XM5s are arguably better than their predecessor in a few key areas, namely battery life and ANC processing (although that's definitely a point of contention among some folks). Both headphones are great, you just need to find the pair that works with your budget and lifestyle.
