Often touted as being the best noise-cancelling headphones for most people, the Sony WH-1000XM5 netted the T3 Platinum Award badge when reviewed, as they're simply stunning over-ears. And this sale price is a new low – with the Silver finish being cheaper than the Black or Midnight Blue options.

Gaining the <a href="https://www.t3.com/features/t3-awards-2022-all-the-headphones-award-winners-announced" data-link-merchant="t3.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon UK"">2022 T3 Award for the Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones, Sony's 5-star product is no doubt among the best-of-best that you can buy. More recent rivals, such as the <a href="https://www.t3.com/reviews/bose-qc-ultra-headphones-review" data-link-merchant="t3.com"" data-link-merchant="t3.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon UK"">Bose QC Ultra Headphones, cost much more – so to see Sony cut the price is a most welcome Spring Deal Days arrival.

Often considered the perfect headphones, as per T3's review, the Sony WH-1000XM5 have long sat in the number one spot on our best headphones list because they're simply exceptional. For most people they're the ideal balance of design, comfort, sound and noise-cancelling ability. 

As our review reads: "In the WH-1000XM5, Sony has managed to replace the best all-round wireless active noise-cancelling over-ear headphones you can buy with, you guessed it, the best new all-round wireless ANC over-ear headphones you can buy."

Using third-party site CamelCamelCamel we can see that this price is very strong, although not the lowest it's ever been (with a true bargain basement £239 price tag in January for a temporary period). However, it is the lowest pricing that's been available in the past two months, so it's still a great deal. 

It's not only Amazon gunning for your purchase, though, as the Sony WH-1000XM5 are also available on Sony's official store at a very similar price (£1 more!). It's therefore worth keeping an eye on the real-time shopping widget below for up-to-date pricing from various other retailers to see if Amazon can be beaten.
