With wireless Bluetooth connectivity (supporting two devices at once), active noise-cancellation (ANC), and superb sound processing powered by 40mm drivers, the Sony 1000XM4 headphones are a choice that's difficult to beat if you're looking to upgrade your personal audio.

In our Sony WH-1000XM4 review, we waxed lyrical about the "lively, balanced and detailed sound" you get with these headphones, and the noise cancelling capabilities we described as "insane" – so these cans are definitely worth a look if you're in the market for some of the best noise cancelling headphones around.

It's not just the sound quality that's important here, though it is outstanding. There's also the style and comfort to think about: these headphones really look the part on your head and won't cause discomfort even if your listening sessions last for hours. Black, Midnight Blue, and Silver are your colour options.

You get handy touch controls on the ear cups, you get integrated support for digital voice assistants, you get up to 30 hours of battery life, and you get fantastic sound no matter what the source – whether it's audiobooks on the Spotify mobile app or YouTube videos being played through a browser on your laptop.

Add all of that up and you need a very good reason not to take the plunge on this deal, assuming you're looking out for some new headphones. They were brilliant value when they first went on sale, and now they're getting close to half price, they're even better – strong contenders for the best headphones for students too.
