Sony’s WH-1000XM2 headphones remain one of the best personal audio options you can buy and even more so right now considering they have now seen a pretty major discount for Black Friday 2018. At the peak of their existence these headphones were $350 and since then have seen some conservative discounts which typically brought the price down to $300 or thereabouts. However, they have now dropped down to just $198 and for that money it’s hard to find a better pair of headphones today.
The company's WH-1000XM line in general has proven to be a big hit with consumers and in part due to the overall quality of the product you are getting. This not only includes the actual sound and build quality but also noise cancelation. In fact, when it comes to the latter, the XM line from Sony is largely considered to be the best noise canceling headphone line on the market. All of these factors have kept the cost of the WH-1000XM2 line high and even in light of the arrival of the newer WH-1000XM3. Although with a price gap today of around $150 between the XM2 and XM3 you are most certainly best off buying the WH-1000XM2. At this price, the quality is unmatched, with great sound, great battery life and exceptional noise canceling.
