Forget the Sony WH-1000XM5 – This is the noise-cancelling headphones deal I need this Black Friday

The Shure AONIC 50 is cheaper than the fan-favourite Sony WH-1000XM5 and maybe even more premium

Black Friday has arrived! Since I've been looking at deals for the last, well, month, I must say, I don't get too excited looking at all the 'amazing' Black Friday deals; most of them are fine, at best. However, one thing I can't get enough of is cheap headphones deals, especially involving quality audio equipment, such as the Shure Aonic 50, which you can buy for over £100 (or $50 in the US) less for a limited time only.

In our 5-star Shure Aonic 50 review, we said these premium cans have perhaps the best sound quality of any noise-cancelling headphones if what you want is a very detailed sound that makes the most of hi-res streaming services. For your money, you get amazing sound and battleship-like build quality. They're also pretty big, though, and have a good heft to them. We just noticed, but Shure also has its Black Friday Sale on at the moment with some sweet online-exclusive deals!
