So, what's the big deal? Well, even without the $70 discount offered at Best Buy, the Sony WH-1000XM5 are easy to recommend if you have the budget thanks to their great-looking design.

They also sound fantastic, much better than many headsets in the same price range or even beyond that, and offer some of the best noise cancelling of any headphones we've used. Whether it's music, podcasts, or playing a game on the train, they'll make your commute more comfortable. In fact, they're comfortable for long listening sessions wherever you are, although they don't fold down to be quite as portable as their predecessors.

The WH-1000XM4s that came before remain an excellent option, too, but with this discount it's hard to look past the Sony WH-1000XM5 as the latest and greatest.

There's no water resistance, however, so best to use them indoors or avoid rain entirely. Still, you can connect them to two devices at once, meaning you can switch between, say, a laptop and your phone with ease.
