Save £50 on this pair of Sony noise-cancelling headphones
Sony WH-1000XM4 noise cancelling headphones: Was £299, now £249, Currys.co.uk
If you prefer over-ear headphones to in-ears, then look no further than the Sony WH-1000XM4s. These are the best wireless headphones we’ve ever tested, and right now they’re discounted by £50 at Currys. In our review we were blown away by the audio, saying “while the active noise cancellation quality might just be pipped by the Bose NC 700s (was £349.95, now £289.95, Bose.co.uk), it’s an incredibly fine margin, and when it comes to the full package, the XM4s can’t be beaten. The audio quality on offer is top of the tree, with barely a foot put wrong.”
