Sony’s flagship active noise canceling (ANC) headphones, the WH-1000XM5, are now available with a 13% discount on Amazon. Out of a total of 3,485 reviews on the site, the headphones have an average rating of 4.5/5 with over 75% five-star reviews. In other words, the WH-1000XM5 seems like a great choice when it comes to high-end ANC cans.

It’s no secret that Sony makes some of the best noise canceling headphones on the market. But the company’s ANC headphones usually come at a hefty price tag. Following the Sony WH-1000XM4, Sony released the WH-1000XM5 earlier this year. The headphones use a new design, 30mm drivers and cost $400, which is $50 more than its predecessor. Luckily, the headphones are now discounted by US$52 at Amazon.

Sony is currently selling the WH-1000XM5 for US$348 on Amazon. Although not an all-time high, the price is the best we’ve seen on the site according to data aggregated by camelcamelcamel. You can get the headphones for even less on Newegg ($330 USD) if you’re comfortable buying from a third-party seller.

So how good is the Sony WH-1000XM5? By RTINGS’ review cans, the headphones are amazing for commuters with impressive ANC that can noticeably reduce background noise. Their sound quality is also quite good provided you don’t want neutral sound as the headphones lean towards the bass side. Finally, the WH-1000XM5 also has impressive battery life. They lasted 27 hours on a single charge according to RTINGS.

In short, if you want industry-leading ANC, the Sony WH-1000XM5 may be your best bet at the discounted price of US$348.
