We rate the Sony WH-1000XM5 very highly on our best headphones guide and we even awarded them five stars out of five during our Sony WH-1000XM5 review. Under normal circumstances, we tend to recommend the slightly older WH-1000XM4 model since they are a little cheaper and relatively close in performance, but today's price at Amazon makes the latest model a much more compelling option.
While they're still a pricey buy, it's the combination of superb noise cancellation, excellent ambient sound features, and great sound quality that make the Sony WH-1000XM5 an incredible pair of headphones. They also feature a more minimalist and modern design with this iteration, which felt studier to us during our review. All-in-all, they might not fit into certain budgets, but those with some cash to spend should definitely consider picking a pair up.
