Our absolute favourite wireless headphones have dropped in price more than we’ve ever seen, crashing to just £199.99 fat John Lewis.
The Sony MDR-1000X received a rare 10/10 rating from Trusted Reviews, with our reviewer complimenting practically every feature these cans have to offer. From noise cancelling, to wireless connectivity to audio quality, these headphones have it all.
With an RRP of £360, the 1000X is close enough to half price to be a genuinely stunning little deal.
Here’s what our reviewer said at the time of review, keeping in mind the price at that time was £330:
“The Sony MDR-1000X have managed to dethrone the legendary Bose when it comes to noise-cancelling headphones, which is a remarkable feat in itself.
But Sony not only provides noise-cancellation that challenges the best in the field, it has done so with intelligence. The Ambient Sound and Quick Listen modes are genuinely useful features, which give listeners a level of flexibility that headphones are not known for.
Then there’s the sound quality, which is traditionally a secondary concern for noise-cancelling headphones. It’s clear that a lot of work has gone into the audio-only aspect of the Sony MDR-1000X, because they sound superb. Yes, these cost about £40 more than the Bose QuietComfort 35 but it’s worth it.
Put it together and you have a personal bubble of high-quality music. That’s the commuter’s dream.”
If that doesn’t convince you, nothing will.
