These top-notch Sony headphones are 'really comfortable' — and over 50% off for Black Friday

A good pair of noise-cancelling wireless headphones from a great brand at a stellar price is nigh-impossible to find, but sometimes we get lucky and a big name puts a primo pair on mega sale. Black Friday is one of those moments: Sony Extra Bass Noise-Canceling Wireless Headphones are down to just $118 at Amazon, from $250. Hang on, we're gonna do the math ... that’s over 50% off!

These cans feature the crisp and clear audio you’d expect from a premier brand like Sony. And thanks to their Dual Noise Sensor Technology, they block out nearly all background and ambient sound. Serenity now!

Why is this a good deal?

Sony is the crème de la crème of headphones brands. No one can really deny that, and these cans are currently 53% off. This is the lowest price we have ever seen — ever.

Why do I need these?

Let's talk about these iconic headphones, on sale in both black and blue. The noise-canceling is seriously superb. Gone are the days of air conditioner humming and washing machine tumbling encroaching on your jams; from here on it’ll just be you and your tunes. Also, Sony’s Touch Sensor controls make it easy to play, pause, skip tracks, control volume and more with just a tap or swipe on the right ear cup. You can even answer calls with a tap when paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth. And the battery life is impressive — up to 30 hours at a pop. These make a great gift for the music lovers in your life (including you).

Hunker down with your jams, e-books and podcasts in absolute, world-ignoring bliss.

What reviewers say:

"I LOVE these headphones!!!" a five-star reviewer said. "I’m a huge bass lover and the bass sounds from these headphones are awesome! And yeah, noise-cancelling, it’s amazing. My apartment is under construction and it's always annoying me, but these headphones definitely help me to escape from those horrible noises!"

Said a fan: "The noise-canceling quality is great. The microphone works really well for calls, and I find myself using it all day for working from home. I have tried using earbuds before, but find they hurt my ears after a few hours. These over-the-ear style headphones, however, are really comfortable, and I can wear them all day without any discomfort. The quality of the sound while playing music is also amazing. As the title calls out, they amplify the bass really well."

One listener gave us an earful: "Bottom line, you won't be disappointed unless you want to lose your hearing at a young or old age I guess, and need ... too much volume. I wish I had more volume but not by much. These work just fine, and it's probably a good thing they don't get louder because I'd listen to them as loud as they would go; that's just me."

We've never seen the price drop this low on this popular pick. Don't miss this deal.
