There's 20% off the excellent Sony WH-1000XM5 cans from The Good Guys that's one of our picks for the best noise-cancelling headphones in Australia. Why? Because they're the latest in the frankly game-changing and iconic WH-XM lineup and you can read our five-star Sony WH-1000XM5 review to find out how it performs. And if you want more proof, see our reviews of the WH-1000XM4 and WH-1000XM3 as proof of their noble bloodline.
The XM5 are every inch a class-leading set of Sony cans – we don’t have the word-count to give them the praise they deserve here, but note the phrase "still the best in the business" in our review.
While the ear cups no longer fold into the headband anymore, that really shouldn't be a deal breaker. They really are worth the extra space in your bag.
Just head to The Good Guys, apply the code FRENZY23 at checkout and you'll score the 20% discount to drop the price to AU$439.20.

AU$549 AU$439.20 at The Good Guys (save AU$109.80 with code)
Sony's latest wireless over-ears only came out in May 2022 and because they're every bit as talented as the excellent WH-1000XM4 they supersede, to see them discounted at all for Click Frenzy is a welcome surprise. As long as their non-folding design works for you, this is one pair of noise cancelling headphones to beat. Just use the code FRENZY23.
Admittedly this isn't the best price we've seen – they were AU$350 during Black Friday last year – but if you aren't willing to wait another month to see if the lowest price will be beaten or not, then listen up when we say this is a good deal if your budget allows for it.
You're getting excellent noise cancellation, a wonderful sounding audio performance, smart ambience features and an app that you'll actually use with the headphones. Long story short, they're the complete package.
Yes, the gains over the older model are more marginal this time around, but the XM5 are still that bit better across the board.
Prefer to have your music delivered via wireless earbuds instead? You're in luck, as the also-excellent Sony WF-1000XM5 true wireless earbuds also receive the 20% discount treatment at The Good Guys, bringing the price down to AU$335.20.
So hurry as this shopping frenzy will end 11:59pm AEDT on Thursday, October 26.
