(Pocket-lint) - With Sony having recently launched its latest WH-1000XM5 with a radical redesign it was predictable that the previous generation WH-1000XM4 would be discounted even further than they had been already during Prime Day

The former model - the arguably more convenient version which folds up for easy transportation - is now available for just $228 in the US and £209 in the UK, representing a 35-40 per cent discount on the original full retail price. That's a great deal whichever way you look at it.

Even now that they're older, the WH-1000XM4 is one of the best pairs of headphones currently available, they're ANC cans that sound fantastic, and offer advanced noise cancelling. 

With 30 hours of battery life, they can go all day and then some, plus you can activate either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant on them for easy smart assistant access and notification alerts, right in your ears. 

WH-1000XM4 can pair with two devices at once, and feature a Speak-to-Chat function that detects when you're talking, reduces your music volume, and then raises it again when you're done. 

You could do a lot worse than picking up a pair of WH-1000XM4s this Prime Day if you're in the market for high end headphones at a good price.
