The new iPhones were unveiled on Tuesday, and they will appear for the first time without wired headphones in the box. Meanwhile, Apple’s genuine noise-canceling wireless headphones are again selling for $ 199. It’s still expensive, but it’s $ 50 from what you pay in the Apple Store, and $ 20 less than the regular price on Amazon. Read our review of Apple AirPods Pro.

The list of headphones WF-1000XM3 is 230 dollars. They briefly dropped to $ 170 earlier this year, but for $ 178 they are still the best wireless headphones in this price range, and also have active noise reduction technology to reduce ambient noise.
The only drawback is the headphones WF-1000XM3, which are not classified as antiperspirant or waterproof headphones. However, I used them for light workouts with little sweat in the gym with no problems. They use Bluetooth 5.0 with AAC support, but not aptX.
Note that we expected Sony to release the next generation WF-1000XM4, but at the moment we may not see such until 2021. Read our review of the Sony WF-1000XM3.

It took a while, but now we finally have a new real sports model of wireless noise cancellation from Sony: WF-SP800N. Ironically, I wrote at the end of my mostly positive review that I would like to see more of them in the $ 160-175 range. They recently dropped to $ 127, but the current price of $ 148 is still $ 50 below the list and $ 20 below the regular street price.
This is not exactly a WF-1000XM3 with a waterproof case. It lacks Sony’s QN1e processor, but it can still enjoy many things, including very good sound, continuous noise reduction and good call quality. This is definitely a significant update compared to the WF-SP700N, which was released in 2018, and its “arcs” (sports fins) close the buds in the ears. Just make sure you get a sealed seal from one of the included ear tips, otherwise both sound and noise absorption will be dim. Read our review of the Sony WF-SP800N.
The WF-XB700 is in the Extra Bass line and costs $ 130. I tried them and I really liked their version. Their sound quality does not match the quality of the WF-1000XM3 or WF-SP800N (it lacks a certain clarity), but if you like bass, it’s good sound headphones. I thought they were a little expensive – $ 130. Priced at $ 52, or $ 78, which corresponds to their all-time low, they are a much more attractive option. First read our extra bass Sony WF-XB700.
Sony’s latest sound-absorbing headphones receive a $ 50 discount on Prime Day, and Amazon has donated a $ 25 gift card to sweeten the deal.
The new WH-1000XM4 has improved voice calls (compared to the WH-1000XM3) and also added a multipoint Bluetooth connection so you can connect to two devices at the same time, such as a phone and a PC. This means that if you receive a call when you use a headset with a computer, the sound will switch to your phone when you answer the call.
The Bose Noise Canceling Headphones probably still have an advantage for voice calls, but the 1000XM4 headphones are probably a bit more comfortable and have some other noise and sound enhancements that make this model a great choice. Read our review of the Sony WH-1000XM4.
When Bose released its new flagship Noise Canceling 700 headset, it did not release the QuietComfort 35 II from its line of headphones, and it is still the best noise-absorbing model. While I think the 700 works generally better, there are people who prefer the QuietComfort 35 II.
Although the QuietComfort 35 II costs $ 350, it usually sells for $ 300 or less. However, $ 199 is the lowest price we’ve seen for it. It is also sold at Best Buy. Read our review of the Bose QuietComfort 35 II.
Amazon’s Echo Buds sound decent, are good for calls – they have Bose noise reduction technology – and are equipped with Alexa to transmit voice commands without pressing any buttons. I thought they were a little more expensive than $ 130, but they’re much more attractive than $ 80, especially after updating the firmware, which improved their performance. Read our review of Amazon Echo Buds.
If you can’t afford Sony’s WH-1000XM4, the WH-CH710N’s noise-canceling headphones drop from the entry level to $ 88 after recently reaching $ 100. They don’t offer sound quality, build quality, or noise reduction in the Sony 1000X, but for $ 88, they offer good value for money. However, I don’t think they cost anywhere around $ 200, their price is listed.
Standard AirPods with a wire charging case sell on Amazon for $ 125. But for Prime Day, the price is $ 115, which saves an additional $ 10. While I’d love to see them reach $ 99, this is about the best price you’ll see for standard AirPods. Airpods with a wireless charging case sell for $ 150 (they are listed for $ 200, but are also sold cheaper).

Microsoft’s Surface Headphones 2 with noise canceling system was released earlier this year, and the biggest change compared to their predecessor was the price: the original Surface Headphones went on the market for $ 350, while the 2 headphones cost $ 250 – now Amazon offers them for $ 200 on the day of the premiere.
While they’ve lost their Cortana voice control (a change no one complains about) and the sound quality hasn’t improved (that’s fine, but not stellar), a combination of some small design tweaks, better battery life, updated Bluetooth and a new lower the price helps to increase their rating and make them more appropriate.
The ability to pair them in a Bluetooth pair allows you to pair them with two devices at the same time (for example, a computer and a phone) and quickly switch the sound from each device to headphones. This is an attractive feature in terms of work from home, and it also works well for making voice calls. Read our review of Microsoft 2 surface headphones.

Sony WH-XB900N looks similar to WH-1000XM4 from Sony. However, it is not as pleasant, and it does not provide exactly the same level of sound quality and noise reduction, although it shares some of its functions. But if you like bass, it has a lot – it’s still Sony Extra Bass headphones. These are also comfortable headphones with decent noise canceling functions. We’ve seen it drop in price to about $ 150 during last year’s holiday season, so $ 123 is a good price. Read our review of the Sony WH-XB900N.

The Beats’ Powerbeats Pro list costs $ 250, but usually sells for $ 200. These headphones cost $ 175 per Prime Day, which is about as low as we’ve seen. Note that only black and white models sell for $ 175.
First published earlier this year. Updated to reflect the return on sales prices and the premiere day.
