Get Sony's WH-1000xM2 noise-cancelling headphones for $52 off

Macworld - Mon, 03/05/2018 - 13:52

I’m a daily user of noise-cancelling headphones, and I’m here to tell you that they’re positively divine for getting work done. That’s why I’m also happy to tell you that Amazon has Sony’s impressive (if inelegantly named) wireless WH-1000xM2 over-ear noise-cancelling headphones on sale for 15 percent off, which drops the price down from $349.99 to a more agreeable $298.

Good noise-cancelling headphones rarely get down to that price, which makes this a nice opportunity to pick some up if you’ve always wanted some. In fact, this is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for these particular headphones to date.

Kuo gets most of his information from his contacts in the Chinese supply chain. He says that Primax and SZS will be the primary suppliers and assemblers of these new headphones, and that they should cost more than the AirPods ($159). They’re expected to ship in the fourth quarter of Apple’s 2018 fiscal year at the earliest (that’s the July to September quarter).
