Sony WH-1000XM4 deals are becoming more and more commonplace now that the newest generation is firmly placed on the shelves. That means we're seeing more and more record-breaking discounts landing on the previous rulers and some stunning value for money on the table as a result.

Cheap Sony WH-1000XM4 alternatives

These headphones are fresh on the market, so you might not find many Sony WH-1000XM4 deals in the price comparisons above. All isn't lost if you're shopping with a lower budget, however. Cheap alternatives might drop those intelligent listening features or lack 2020-quality ANC, but older Sony WH-1000XM3, Bose 700, or Sennheiser Momentum headphones are dropping in price these days. You're still picking up premium audio here - some of the best headphones available on the market in fact, but you're saved from those straight out the gate prices here.

Is the Sony WH-1000XM4 price worth it?

While the design remains largely the same as the previous model, Sony's packed some considerable brains into their new headphones to make the Sony WH-1000XM4 price worth it. New algorithms work with the DSEE Extreme Engine, two microphones on each cup, and an HD noise cancelling processor to deliver ANC tuned exactly to you through powerful and fast LDAC Bluetooth codecs. Plus there's a whole host of intelligent new features to make your life easier, like Speak-to-Chat that automatically pauses your music when you talk or Adaptive Sound Control that learns where you are and tunes your listening experience accordingly. 

These are all brand new features to hit the world of noise-canceling headphones. Though you might be paying a little more for the Sony WH-1000XM4s considering other models are dropping their prices, you're getting premium audio that these older cans won't be offering.
