Sony’s AirPods competitor hits Amazon all-time low at $198 ($30 off)


Amazon offers the Sony WF-1000XM3 Truly Wireless Earbuds for $198 shipped in both colors. That’s down from the regular $228 price tag and a new Amazon all-time low, alongside the first discount we’ve tracked. Watch out AirPods, Sony’s wireless earbuds have arrived with all of the features you’d want in an Apple competitor. That includes up to 24 hours of use on a full charge and 90-minutes worth of playback after just a few minutes. Active noise cancellation and more led us to call them “the new champs” of this category. Rated 3.6/5 stars.

Update 12/3 @ 12:15pm: Amazon is offering the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i Wireless Over-Ear Headphones for $269 shipped. That’s $231 off the going rate found at retailers like Best Buy and beats the lowest Amazon offer we have tracked by $61. These B&O headphones feature advanced ANC, transparency mode for tuning in to your surroundings, an intuitive touch aluminum interface, and up to 18-hour battery life. Rated 4+ stars from 70% of reviewers.

If you want to go with a truly budget option, consider the Anker Curve Bluetooth Earbuds for around $25. You’ll ditch some of the best Sony features like active noise cancellation, but if you just need a pair for the gym, this is certainly an option to consider.

Sony WF-1000XM3 features:

  • Industry leading noise canceling with HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1e
  • 24bit Audio signal processing delivers dramatically improved sound quality
  • Battery life up to 24 hours with carrying case (with 10min quick charge for 90min of play time
  • Truly wireless design with uninterrupted L/R simultaneous Bluetooth transmission
