Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of early Black Friday deals. Today’s list is highlighted by a deal on Sony’s WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones, which are down below $280 at various retailers. This will be their sale price for the holiday season; normally, they retail for around $350.
We’ve recommended these headphones multiple times in the past year and change. While we wouldn’t be surprised to see Sony release a new model in the coming months, the WH-1000XM3 remain a superb blend of well-cushioned comfort, clean sound, and the most effective active noise-canceling on the market. Their sound profile does skew a bit toward heavier bass, but they’re not sloppy about it, and it’s possible to customize the signature through a companion app. We’d like the ability to customize the strength of the ANC, and we’d prefer physical controls over the touch-based ones here, but if you’ve been searching for a premium pair of noise-canceling headphones, this is a good price for a set we recommend with confidence.
That said, a metric ton of Black Friday deals has gone live ahead of Black Friday proper, including a whole bunch of discounts on PS4 and Xbox One hardware, video games for those systems, Amazon Fire TV streamers and Fire tablets, the latest-gen Apple iPad, and much more. So even if you don’t need a new pair of headphones, have a look through the full roundup below.
