Amazon continues to have some of the best deals on tech, especially in the audio department.

Case in point: Sony‘s noise-cancelling headphones are currently 29% off, slashing the $350 price tag down to just $248 — the best deal they’ve seen all year. The top-selling headphones have received rave reviews from tech enthusiasts and average consumers alike, since they first came out last year. And now you can get your hands on a discount just in time for spring and summer travel.

A sub-$250 price tag is rare for a premium tech product from Sony and competitive brands. Bose’s noise-cancelling headphones currently start at $199 on sale, while Apple’s AirPods Max start at $449.

The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones’ headlining feature is its ANC (active noise cancellation) technology, which uses microphones and speakers to reduce background and surrounding noises. While drowning out distracting noises like keyboard typing or office chatter, they also deliver crystal clear audio.

These Bluetooth headphones also boast a powerful low-frequency response and an impressive lack of distortion at high volumes. Plus, in addition to helping with ANC, the microphones can also be used to record voice memos or talk to Siri on connected devices. All this, and they still have an expected battery life of 35 hours with ANC on (a quick three-minute charge gets you up to one hour of playtime).

Aside from upgraded technology, Sony’s headphones are sleek in design: they’re available in matte black or white and feature easy-to-reach controls on both ear cups, such as the power/pairing button and USB ports on the right, and playback, track navigation and voice assistants on the left.

Sony says these are also its lightest headphones yet, with a fold-down design that makes these headphones great for travel.
