The new iPhones are expected to be unveiled Tuesday, and it is rumored that they will come without wired headphones in the box for the first time ever. Meanwhile, Apple’s true wireless noise canceling headphones are now back on sale for $ 199. It’s still pricey, but it’s $ 50 off what you’ll pay in the Apple Store, and $ 20 less than the usual price on Amazon.

Jabra Elite 45h was released a few months ago and is now on sale for $ 80, 20% off the list price of $ 100. It’s one of the best values for on-ear headphones at the moment, with good sound quality, rugged design, and a comfortable fit (for on-ear headphones, however).
Equally important, it is very good for making calls with its dual microphone technology and the side pitch feature that allows you to hear your voice in headphones so you don’t end up speaking too loudly. Available in multiple color options, it folds flat but does not fold.

List of WF-1000XM3 earbuds for $ 230. They briefly dropped to $ 170 earlier this year, but at $ 178, they are still the best wireless earbuds in this price range, and they are very active. Noise cancellation Technology to reduce ambient noise.
The only drawback is that the WF-1000XM3 earbuds are not rated as sweatproof or water resistant. However, I used it for light workouts with little to no sweat in the gym without a problem. They use Bluetooth 5.0 with AAC support, but not aptX.
Note that we were expecting Sony to release the next generation of the WF-1000XM4, but at this point, we might not see it before 2021.
water resistant: No (Lacks IPX certification). Read our Sony WF-1000XM3 review.

It took a while, but now we finally have a new sporty Sony wireless noise canceling model: the WF-SP800N. Funny that I wrote at the end of my mostly positive review that I would like to see them more in the range between $ 160 and $ 175. It recently dropped to $ 127, but the current $ 148 price is still $ 50 below the listing, and $ 20 below the regular street price.
This is NOT WF-1000XM3 with waterproof body. It’s missing Sony’s QN1e processor, but there’s still a lot to like about it, including very good sound, solid noise cancellation, and good call quality. It’s definitely an important upgrade for me WF-SP700NReleased in 2018, their ‘bows’ (sports fins) trap the buds in your ears. Just make sure to secure one of the included ear tips or else the noise and noise cancellation will be faded.
water resistant: Yeah (IP55 splash proof). Read our Sony WF-SP800N review.
The WF-XB700 is in the company’s line of Extra Bass and it’s listed for $ 130. I tried them and really liked their fit. Their sound quality isn’t quite as good as the WF-1000XM3 or WF-SP800N (lacks some clarity), but if you like the bass, they are good headphones. I thought it was a little more expensive at $ 130. At $ 52, or $ 78 – matching its all-time low – it’s a much more enticing option.
water resistant: Yeah (IPX4 splash proof).
