True wireless earbuds are more than abundant right now. Whether you want something as cheap as $30 or want to go all the way to a $250 pair, you have countless options to choose from. Since their release in August 2019, Sony's WF-1000XM3 have remained as one of our top recommendations.

Outside of some annoyances with the XM3's large charging case and lack of water resistance, one of the biggest things holding the earbuds back for a lot of potential shoppers is the high price. Thanks to this new Black Friday deal, however, that's no longer a barrier you have to worry about.

You normally have to spend $230 for the WF-1000XM3, but right now, they can be yours for just $168 — a total savings of $62. If you're in the market for a new pair of high-end earbuds and have been waiting for the right time to buy, this is it.

With 6 hours of continuous listening time and a total of 24 hours when you factor in the charging case, the XM3 have the endurance you need for just about every situation.

In addition to those fundamentals, Sony also throws in a bunch of extra features that really put its earbuds over the edge. There's built-in Alexa, automatic playback controls when you remove and put the earbuds in your ears, and a Quick Attention Mode that allows you to quickly hear the world around you just by placing your hand over the left earbud.

This Black Friday deal won't last long, so if you want to save big on some of the best true wireless earbuds around, you better act fast.
