Black Friday 2022 is almost here and we are being inundated with deals on top-rated wireless headphones. Currently, Amazon has the Sony WH-1000XM4 on sale for $228 (opens in new tab). Normally they retail for $350, so that's $122 in savings. 

This is one of the lowest prices we've seen for these Sony headphones. It's also one of the best Black Friday deals to grab early. Despite being replaced by the new Sony WH-1000XM5s which are currently available for $348 (opens in new tab), the XM4's remain some of the best sounding and smartest wireless headphones on the market and getting to keep an extra $120 in your pocket isn't a bad thing either.

Sony's WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones are a solid alternative to Bose's QC 45 headphones. They feature a comfortable, over-ear design, 40mm drivers, active noise cancellation, and up to 30-hours of battery life. 

In our Sony WH-1000XM4 review, we found their excellent sound quality and light, comfortable frame impressive. We are also floored by their powerful noise-canceling functionality. We rate the Sony WH-1000XM4s 4.5 out of 5-stars and cosign them with our coveted Editor's Choice award. 

Design-wise, the WH-1000XM4's relaxed fit and breathable aesthetics lets music lovers enjoy extended listening. With a weight of 8.9 ounces, the WH-1000XM4s is on par with the WH-1000XM3s and Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 — both weighing 9 ounces. 

Sound-wise, the WH-1000XM4's dynamic soundstage and Sony's signature bass profile give them an edge over rival Bose headphones. If you're looking for high-quality sound and noise-cancellation, the WH-1000XM4's are a wise choice.
