The Sony WH-1000MX4 are a little older now but they are still some of the best over-ear headphones ever. These wireless Sony cans package together top-notch audio, excellent comfort, and effective noise cancellation all at a reasonable price point that's £80 less than the newer Sony XM5. We still rate these as the best headphones for most people, exactly because you can find them at a price like this for Black Friday.

Our Sony WH-1000XM4 review shows that these headphones boast excellent noise cancellation and superior sound quality to the point where we would still consider them the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. That's even with the newer Sony WH-1000XM5 now available.

It helps that the older headphones are around $100 / £100 cheaper, and the upgrades in the newer version are fairly minimal. That means the Sony WH-1000XM4 remains the best choice for most people overall. You get exquisite audio quality to appreciate all of your favorite music, class-leading noise cancelation for the hectic commute, and a sturdy set of cans that will last you for years to come.
