With so many Prime Day music deals flying around, it’s sometimes difficult to focus and pin down a real bargain. But if you're specifically looking for a pair of in-ear headphones or earbuds, then two are on sale right now for Prime Day that I own and think are excellent options.

First up are the awesome Sony WF-1000XM4 noise cancelling earbuds, which have been reduced from £250 to £149 on Amazon - that's a 40% saving and a real bargain. When I bought my pair, they were reduced to £199 and I thought THAT was a good price. In the US, the silver pair are down from $279.99 to $198 making this a doubly good deal on both sides of the Atlantic.

Noise cancelling is excellent and the sound, as you'd expect from Sony is rich and detailed.

I can’t remember seeing these awesome Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds for such a low price - and after using them daily for more than a year, I highly recommend these. Sound is rich and detailed, while noise cancelling is really good too - especially for an in-ear. For this price, you just can’t go wrong.

If you're looking for something that's not Sony shaped, then I can point you in the direction of the House Of Marley Redemption ANC 2. These Active Noise Cancelling earbuds are down from £149.99 to just £99.99 on Amazon UK, while in the US, the online shopping giant have cut the price from $169.99 to $148.17.

Like all House Of Marley products, the Redemption ANC 2 are made from reclaimed materials and sustainable bamboo. They offer warm sound and I find them very comfortable when I'm out running and thoroughly recommended them if you're after something a little different when it comes to in-ear headphones.

I really like the look, feel and audio delivery from the House Of Marley Redemption ANC 2 wireless earbuds. Sound has a lush warmth to it and extra tweaking can be done through the company's smartphone app. Their green credentials are another plus point for me and this is a great Prime Day price
