Sony WH-1000XM5: was
$399 now $328 at Amazon
Quite simply the newest and best in Sony's class-leading wireless over-ear lineup. The older XM4 was outstanding, the XM3 before it was excellent, and it'll come as little surprise to know that Sony's XM5 proposition is also incredibly hard to beat – especially with a whopping 18% off, equalling their lowest ever seen price! They don't fold up like the XM4, but they are some of the best noise-cancelling headphones money can buy from a trusted retailer – at their lowest-seen price.
Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones: was
$429 now $379 at Amazon
These headphones sound just incredible, delivering Bose's best-ever detail, balance and expansiveness – and they have the strongly noise cancellation we've ever heard too. They also deliver other features, such as spatial audio, app customization, multi-point connectivity and more. They're expensive, but they're worth it – and they were only released in October, so any discount this soon is nice.
Sennheiser Momentum 4: was
$379 now $255.16 at Amazon
Sennheiser's fourth generation wireless over-ear cans are excellent – just see our five-star review of the product to see why. Now you can save over $120 on their excellent active noise cancellation, suite of impressive features, plus admirable sound and call quality. They’re also light and comfortable – and the 60-hour battery is just another way in which they're unbeatable at the level. At this 32% off price, they're exceptionally tempting – although they very briefly dropped to $245 in September on Amazon, so it's not quite their best ever, though this is cheaper than they were on Cyber Monday.
JBL Tune 760NC: was
$129 now $64.95 at Amazon
The bigger sibling of the 660NC above, these offer more comfortable over-ear fit, which also helps to improve their active noise cancellation powers, and sound quality. This half-price deal matches the cheapest these headphones have ever been, and they're definitely incredible value at under $65.
Sony WF-C700N: was
$119 now $89.99 at Best Buy
Five-star earbuds for under $90? You better believe it. We absolutely loved the audio quality of these comfortable, lightweight buds, and were impressed by the features and app control. This is the cheapest we've seen these buds, and we'd be surprised if they go any cheaper on Cyber Monday (but nothing's impossible).
Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II: was
$279 now $199 at Amazon
If you want the best noise-blocking power you can get for the price, these deliver it. They also sound superb, and have a ton of useful smart features. But the headline is the noise cancellation, and you can't get better for under $200. Actually, you basically can't get better, period. Oh, and this is the cheapest they've ever been – we'd be surprised if they go any lower.
Beats Studio Buds: was
$149.95 now $99.95 at Walmart
The Beats Studio Buds are packed with features, and Walmart now has the earbuds down to $99.95 – just $10 more than the record-low price. You're getting active noise cancelling technology, a comfortable fit, and decent audio performance. They come with smart features for both iPhone and Android, too.

Best Cyber Monday headphones deals in the UK
Sony WH-1000XM4: was
£350 now £197.99 at Amazon
This is their lowest price yet – which dropped on November 16! Let's face it, out of all the new headphones available today, these are an excellent set of wireless cans – and although the newer XM5s sound just that tiny bit better, it's a closely run race. These hugely popular over-ear headphones are sonically gifted, boast excellent ANC and, unlike their younger siblings, fold up for easier transportation in their included travel case…
Sony WH-CH520: was
£60 now £34 at Amazon
This massive 42% saving on their February 2023 launch price is a the biggest discount yet on what we called "some of the best cheap headphones you can buy" – see our glowing Sony WH-CH520 review for clarification. They've briefly dipped to just under £40 before today, in August, but this knocks that price clean out of the park, doesn't it?
Bose QuietComfort 45 SE: was
£249 now £189 at John Lewis
These headphones are essentially identical to the regular Bose QuietComfort 45, but they come with a soft case instead of a hard case. That makes them damn good headphones, especially for this price, though this 'SE' version has been £10 cheaper in the past, so you may want to consider waiting. (The cheapest that the regular QC45 headphones have fallen to is £189.)
Sony WH-1000XM5: was
£380 now £279 at Amazon
Quite simply the newest and best in Sony's class-leading wireless over-ear lineup. The older XM4 was outstanding, the XM3 before it was excellent, and it'll come as little surprise to know that Sony's XM5 proposition is also incredibly hard to beat – especially with a whopping £100 off, aka a return to their lowest ever seen price! (Clarity? Of course. Get them if you want some of the best noise-cancelling headphones money can buy from a trusted retailer.
JBL Tune 770NC: was
£119 now £79.99 at Currys
We were very impressed by these headphones in our review, where we praised the noise cancellation, lightweight build and battery life. With 30% off, they're even better value – and are surely the best way of stopping outside noise at this price. This is the first time these have ever been discounted, and we'd be surprised if they get any cheaper.
Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones: was
£449 now £399 at Amazon
These headphones offer simply fantastic sound, cramming in more detail, dynamic range and energy than we've ever heard from Bose, along with the company's best-ever noise cancellation. They're high-priced, but they feel and sound premium, and come with great extra features, including spatial audio. They only came out in October, so while this isn't a huge discount, any price cut is good!
Beats Studio Pro: was
£349.99 now £279 at Amazon
This isn't as good as a saving as what's on offer in the US, but a 20% discount is much better than nothing, and it brings the price down to the lowest its been since launch. As with all Beats headphones, they look beautiful, and come with great smart features for both Apple devices and Android. In our review, we praised their sound quality and ease of use when it came to features like personalized spatial audio.
Focal Bathys: was
£699 now £599 at Peter Tyson
These might just be the most beautiful headphones we've ever seen – note the glowing backlit flame on each ear cup – and not only do they offer active noise cancellation (in both ‘silent’ and ‘soft’ modes) which you can adjust to your taste via the in-app EQ settings, they also include a 24-bit USB-C DAC mode, so no standalone option required to get better sound from your laptop or iPhone 15, say. Battery life is 30 hours and you're getting Focal's patented driver tech plus Bluetooth 5.1 with both aptX and aptX Adaptive support. They very briefly dropped to £549 once before, but that was a serious flash in the pan. Our advice? It's a serious saving on seriously good headphones.
Sony WF-C700N earbuds: was
£99 now £74.99 at Amazon
Simply the best cheaper noise-cancelling earbuds you can buy – that's what I said in my five-star review of these April 2023-release earbuds. And I stick by it too. They're lovely and small, they're comfortable, and although you don't get on-ear volume control or Sony's higher-res LDAC support, they've never seen a discount like this before – which is a whopping 24% off the asking price. They briefly dropped to £75.99 for Prime Day earlier in the year, so this deal means an extra pound stays in your pocket. Tidy.
JLab Go Air Pop: was
£24.99 now £17.99 at Amazon
Before we get carried away, the JLab Go Air Pop are not the last word in sonic brilliance. But they also aren't half bad – in fact they're alarmingly good for their lowly asking fee. If this is truly where your budget maxes out, you'll get reliable Bluetooth connectivity, killer battery life, comfortable and light earpieces and solid music on the go. It would be churlish to expect more – and this deal (which applies to various colorways) is a whole £2 cheaper than we've ever seen them.
Sony WF-1000XM5: was
£259 now £219 at Amazon
Sony's latest flagship buds only launched recently, and now they're at their lowest-ever price in this deal. They offer great sound quality, solid active noise cancellation, and great customization and app control, all in a new smaller and lighter design compared to Sony's previous premium buds.
