These true wireless Sony earbuds are an absolute bargain at a $130 discount on Amazon
If you've been looking for a nice pair of true wireless earbuds that are not Apple's AirPods, the recent announcements of Amazon's Echo Buds and Microsoft's Surface Earbuds may have made it even harder to choose from an already long list of sleek, versatile, and powerful options. But if you're simply interested in spending as little money as possible while still going the completely cord-free route, your choice is made a lot easier by a killer new Amazon deal.

The e-commerce giant will fulfill your orders of the "premium noise canceling" Sony WF-1000X at a massive $130 discount, although it's definitely worth pointing out that the retailer in charge of actually selling the headphones is Amazon-owned Woot. That shouldn't make much of a difference, though, as you're still looking at brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged units here backed by a full 1-year manufacturer's warranty.
Typically priced at $200, these somewhat outdated wireless earbuds have been repeatedly discounted in the last few months, with this exact same deal being offered by Woot on its own website back in August for 24 hours only. Of course, the main reason why you can buy these babies at such a crazy low price nowadays is the recent release of the vastly superior $230 WF-1000XM3.

But you might want to hurry and bag the original WF-1000X at 130 bucks less than usual, because Best Buy and a number of other major retailers no longer sell this product, signaling its imminent demise. In addition to digital noise cancelling technology, these particular true wireless earbuds also have Adaptive Sound Control functionality going for them, not to mention a compact and minimalist design that a lot of business professionals are likely to prefer over the AirPods and especially Surface Earbuds looks.

Granted, the battery life is not exactly industry-leading and the headphones aren't water-resistant either, but it's hard to realistically expect more than what you get here at that price point.

No thanks! I ditched Sony primarily for removing the 3.5mm jack. Bluetooth = cancer This is why I've deleted the Bluetooth app from my S8+.

Radio waves do not cause cancer. Radio waves are non-ionizing radiation which cannot damage DNA. Radio does not cause cancer. Bluetooth is a type of radio. Radio has been in use since 1895. If radio caused cancer it would be known by now. Just like x-rays, which were invented around that same time period, we found out by the 40's and 50's that x-rays caused cancer.(x-rays are ionizing radiation).

Agreed. As my physics professor told us years ago, the average adult human is the equivalent of a 900W infrared light bulb. We put out hundreds of times more energy at a higher frequency than any radio wave we typically use for communication. And visible light is higher frequency and energy than radio waves too. None of that stuff kills us, and neither will 1W radios.
