The Sony 1000X M3 wireless noise canceling headphones are currently the best you can buy. The sound quality of this model is better than that of most other on-ear headphones, as well as a more insulating noise-canceling effect than its closest competitor, the Bose QC35 II.
The 1000X M3s usually cost $ 349.99 and, according to my colleague The opinion of Vlad Savov (and my personal experience), they are worth every penny. For the next few days, they will have $ 50 off in Massdrop. That brings them back to $ 299, which is a good price for headphones that rarely benefit from a discount.
This price drop is effective for black and silver helmets and, as they are new, they come with a one year warranty from Sony covering manufacturing defects.
There are many things that please the M3 1000X: they load via USB-C, and this model comes with a hard case containing some accessories (all provided for purchase), like a USB-C cable, 3.5mm cable and an adapter to connect to the in-flight entertainment. The associated application for iOS and Android allows you to adjust the equalizer at your leisure and change the presentation of the sound to mimic that of an arena, a club, or any other party. An outdoor concert scene, etc.
