Deal: Sony's newest noise-canceling headphones receive a $70 discount on Amazon

If you're looking for a pair of noise-canceling headphones in the $300-$350 price range, two brands stand out from the others: Bose and Sony. Now, if you have something against Bose products, we have the perfect deal for you, but you'll have to hurry.

Sony's WH1000XM3 wireless headphones are now on sale at Amazon for $70 off, but there's a catch. Although you won't have to pay the full $350 price for the headphones, this is a “renewed” product and while it's “professionally inspected and tested by an Amazon qualified supplier,” they're not the same as a brand new product.

The good news is the headphones look like new and are fully functional. Also, they come with a 90-day warranty, but the box and accessories may be generic, in case you're wondering.

Sony's next generation noise-canceling headphones feature both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa support and work flawlessly with iOS and Android smartphones. If you plan to purchase them, you should also download the Sony Headphones Connect app from Google Play Store or App Store to use Smart Listening, control your ambient sound settings and adjust the sound levels with Equalizer.

Since these are wireless headphones, it's important to know how long you'll be able to use them with a single charge, and the answer is up to 30 hours. It's also worth mentioning that thanks to the quick charging technology, you'll be getting five hours of playback with just a 10-minute charge.
