Apple AirPods Pro for $220 ($30 off): You can snag a pair of Apple’s awesome noise-canceling earbuds for $20 off on Google Shopping by using the promo code JEZGSJ. We’re big fans of these earbuds (8/10, WIRED Recommends), which have some of the best audio quality you’ll find, and they reduce the sounds of the outside world dramatically. They work on Android and iOS, but you get a few more perks connecting it to an iPhone.
Sony WF-1000XM3 for $120 ($108 off): We’re normally a bit skittish about recommending refurbished items, but these factory-refurbished Sony earbuds come with a 90-day guarantee from Amazon. They are some of the best noise-canceling earbuds you’ll find (9/10, WIRED Recommends), with sound reduction and audio quality that bests the AirPods Pro, though they are slightly larger. If you’re nervous about getting them refurbished, a brand new pair costs just $10 more than the AirPods on sale above.
