Featured Deal: Sony Noise-Canceling Wireless Earbuds (WF-1000XM3) | $198
The best Sony electronics deals of May 2020 are here.
Whether it’s wireless earbuds, headphones, PlayStation gaming, or a new TV you seek, Sony is delivering on the deals right now. We’ve picked out hot current deals for all of those items and more, including $150 off the Sony Xperia 1 smartphone… and even thousands off an enormous 8K TV, if that’s what you’re into.
Here’s a look at the best Sony deals going on right now.
Sony’s competitor to Apple’s AirPods Pro might not be as slim or sleek, but they’re super comfortable, sound great, and have excellent noise-canceling capabilities: “The digital noise canceling in this model is simply the best I’ve encountered in any truly wireless earbuds,” wrote Gizmodo’s Adam Clark Estes in his review last summer.
The Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Earbuds are $32 off the normal price right now, putting a wide enough gulf between them and Apple’s alternative to maybe make your decision a little easier.
Sony Xperia 1 | $798
Sony’s flagship phones are among the highest of the high end, and last year’s Xperia 1 certainly fits that bill. It’s one of the rare handsets to squeeze a ridiculously crisp 4K screen onto a phone, and it’s ultra-tall too at a 21:9 aspect ratio.
It also has great cameras and a speedy Snapdragon 855 chip onboard, and this purple color scheme is very striking (the black one, less so). Amazon has the Xperia 1 for $152 off the list price right now.
Sony has a reputation for excellent headphones, and these wireless noise-canceling over-ear headphones look to be one of the best picks on the premium end of the price scale. Amazon customers think so, at least, with a 4.6-star rating with more than 8,000 reviews.
With active noise-canceling to block out the world, up to 30 hours of battery life, and built-in Amazon Alexa support, you can really jam with Sony’s Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones. Right now, they’re $72 off of the list price whether you opt for black or silver.
Look at this adorable little Bluetooth speaker. It’s about four inches tall and weighs just over half a pound, but Sony says that it packs a punch with extra bass capabilities.
This easily-portable speaker can connect to your smartphone, tablet, or other devices and lasts up to 16 hours on a charge. It also has waterproof casing, as shown! Best of all, it’s $22 off the list price right now at Amazon and available in a handful of different colors
Sony PlayStation Classic | $53
Also known as “Lil’ baby PlayStation,” the PlayStation Classic is basically Sony’s take on the tiny NES and Super NES that Nintendo released a couple years back, packing 20 original PSone games into a pint-sized, plug-and-play console.
It’s pretty no-frills in execution, but legendary games such as Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, and Tekken 3 onboard, you can get a lot of fun out of it—especially now that it’s $47 off the list price.
A PlayStation Plus membership is essential if you want to play PS4 games online, but at $60 a year, it might seem a bit steep. Luckily, you can grab a yearlong membership now for just $31 through CDKeys. The subscription also grants you free games to download each and every month, which you can keep for as long as your Plus plan stays active.
Traveling might not be on the agenda for a while, but if you’re eager to spend some social distancing time exploring the world around you and documenting its suddenly sparse beauty, Sony has a seriously sweet camera for you.
The Sony Alpha a6500 Mirrorless Digital Camera has a 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor that’s ideal for pristine shots and stellar video alike, and BH’s bundle not only includes a 16-50mm lens, but also an accessory kit with a 64GB memory card, spare battery, and camera bag. The entire kit is $600 off of the individual list prices.
The Alpha a6000 is a little bit older than the Alpha a6500 above, and this is just for the camera and 16-50mm lens without the bonus accessories—but it may also be a better bargain overall.
This well-reviewed camera has a 4.4-star rating from Amazon customers, and though it lacks a touch display and has slower image processing than the a6500, it still seems to be an impressive digital camera for today.
Looking for a nice new pair of earbuds with a bit of extra thump? Sony’s MDR-XB50AP earbuds come with an “Extra Bass” tag in their title, with 12mm Neodynium drivers putting a bit more force into your tunes.
Right now, the blue and black versions are down $20 off of the list price at Amazon, but check on the red price as we’ve seen it fluctuate.
Sony 85” Z9G Master Series 8K LED TV | $6,699
Should you buy an 8K television right now? More pressingly, should you spend $6,699 on a TV right now? Look, we can’t make that decision for you—but when you consider that Sony’s Z9G Master Series 8K LED TV is $6,300 off the original list price right now, that might be easier to justify.
Ripe for your wild early-adopter needs, this enormous 4320p TV has Sony’s 8K X-Reality PRO technology and is IMAX-enhanced, while the backlight master drive adjusts light levels in parts of the screen for amplified contrast.
If you’re playing a lot more games online these days, whether it’s Fortnite, Rocket League, or something else entirely, then you should have a headset to strategize with your squad… or maybe trash-talk your foes.
We’re fans of Sony’s official PlayStation Gold wireless headset, which easily connects to the console, is super comfortable, and has stellar sound. It’s $31 off right now in Black, but Amazon has other colors coming in and out of stock here and there.
If, much like the Black Eyed Peas, you love that boom boom boom (sorry), then Sony’s “Extra Bass” wireless headphones (XB950B1) are probably for you.
In addition to packing an extra punch on the low end, these app-controllable cans provide up to 18 hours of battery life—and they’re 43% off the list price right now.
Given how much time we’re all spending at home right now, it might be the time that you realize that your TV’s built-in speakers just aren’t cutting it. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a bundle to get a nice boost over the default.
Sony’s HT-S100F is an entry-level soundbar without any external surround speakers or a subwoofer, but with 120W output and a “bass reflex” design, you’ll surely hear the advantage. It’s $30 off of the list price right now.
