Want a great pair of noise-canceling headphones that completely block any background chatter and make you feel like you’re in your own little universe? This wireless Sony pair does just that.

Originally priced at $348, these renewed headphones are on sale for just $200—$148 off—and are considered one of the best noise-canceling headphones on the market. That’s 43 percent off and the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the WH-1000XM3.

Don’t let that renewed tag fool you. Amazon examined and tested these headphones, so they work and look like-new with minimal “wear and tear.” They also come with a 90-day return policy, so you can rest assured that these headphones will exceed even the highest standards.

The noise-canceling headphones boast over 30 hours of battery life. And if you’re in a rush you can get five hours of use on a 10-minute charge. Smart control touch sensors are built into the plush and comfortable ear cups, too.

The Sony headphones are also lighter than previous models so you’ll barely realize you’re wearing them. Thanks to a “swivel and fold” design, they tuck neatly into an included carry case for easy travel. And when you’re on the plane, a special feature optimizes the sound for high altitudes.

You can sync the wireless headphones via the companion smartphone app to bring in more or less ambient noise. This pair also comes with quick access to your smartphone’s voice assistant, including Siri for Apple iPhone, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. The headphones also adjust to your head size, hair and if you’re wearing glasses.

These black noise-canceling headphones come with a 3.5mm wired headphone jack, USB-C charging cable and airplane adapter.

Need a second opinion?

“As someone who owns Bose noise-canceling headphones, these new headphones have blown me away,” wrote an excited five-star Amazon reviewer. “The noise canceling is a noticeable step up from the QC35, I currently have. It's light (a tad heavier than the Bose), comfortable (I usually can't stand having most headphones on for a long time as my ears tend to get sore - no issues 3 hours in with this pair), and have a sound quality that blows the Bose or any other noise-canceling headphones I've tried out of the water. Being able to cup the right headphone to pause the noise cancelling to listen to people talking to you without taking off the headphone is a pretty cool feature.”

Another satisfied shopper added, “I ordered the refurbs, and they arrived in excellent condition. My set came in the original packaging, with even the clear plastic wrapping intact. They're comfortable, the sound quality is great, and the noise canceling is next-level excellent. Worth every penny.”
