UK Sony headphone deals

First up, let's take a look at some UK deals - and if you're in the market for some neat in-ear headphones, then the Sony WF-C500 are down from £90 to just £49. These are a great option if you're looking for something to plug in if you're out on a run or in the gym. For less than £50, this is a nice deal. 

Another top deal on Amazon is on the Sony WF-1000XM4 headphones which have been reduced from £250 to £190 - and that's a great bargain considering the quality you're getting out of the box. The noise cancelling is fantastic and the audio is well balanced and suits all styles of music. Read my full Sony WF-1000XM4 review to get more info on these amazing in-ear headphones.

Next up we have the Sony LinkBuds S which are down from £180 to £139. These are a step up from the previously mentions WF-C500 thanks to their noise cancelling abilities and clarity of sound. Battery life sits around the 20-hour mark and they're also IPX4 water resistant so you don't have to worry about them when the drizzle starts.

US Sony headphone deals

Amazon US are also in on the Prime Early Access Sale on Sony headphones and a pair of Sony WH-XB910N noise cancelling headphones for $198 is impressive. They usually retail for $249 making this a good choice if you want a little bit of extra bass with your beats. Fast charging and a top battery life, these are definitely worth a closer look.

If you’re looking for something at a really affordable price, then the Sony MDRZX110NC for just $28 is pretty much unbeatable.

I mentioned the Sony LinkBuds S in the UK deals, and I'm happy to say they're also on sale in the US. You can pick the Sony LinkBuds S up at Amazon for $128 - that down from the RRP of $199.99. They're true wireless noise cancelling earbuds with smart features that adapt the audio to your environment. This price drop covers both the black and white models
