Right now, you can snag these Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones on sale for an unreal $111 off! And not only are they a steal, they’re the real deal. Sony did it up by giving these headphones 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 ear cups, which by the way are extremely plush and even comfier than Bose, according to Walmart shoppers.

“I decided to splurge on the Sony WH-1000XM4 and I'm so glad I did,” raved a Walmart shopper. “The sound quality is much better, the ear pads are much more comfortable, and best of all, I'm free to move all over my house while listening to music.”

On sale for $137 (was $200), these Beats Solo3 headphones sync to just about any smartphone or laptop via Bluetooth, plus they have up to 40 hours of battery life on a single charge. This means you don’t have to be tethered to your device, but still get a solid stream of music and podcasts for nearly two days. This is impressive, considering most wireless headphones tap out after about 30 hours.

“The Beats Solo3 is absolutely the best headset I've ever owned,” raved a five-star shopper. “I've had many headsets over the years to do my job. Now that I'm changing careers and moving into online teaching I need a headset that is of very high quality with the ability to send and receive calls and to be wireless...Beats Solo3 fits the bill. It is exceptionally comfortable to wear for many hours at a time. The battery life is phenomenal.”

“First, I need to start with the fact that I’m extremely picky when it comes to headphones and I’ve bought over 20 pairs from Amazon from brands to no brands,” one enthusiastic reviewer shared. “These are the first pair of headphones that I’ve worn to the gym that have not needed a single adjustment! The seal is great and it just doesn’t move!”
