Prime Day ends in a few hours, but there are plenty of bargains to be had - and this one is perfect for commuters, music fans, or those that are fed up of tangled wires. Sony’s WF-1000XM3/S, one of the earbud types in our best headphones list, are now $148 down from $249.99 - a drop of over 40%. These miniature marvels are offer premium sound, as well as impressive noise cancellation and a handy case that allows for 24-hour battery life.

That’s not all, though - Amazon is also giving away a $20 gift card for free, making this one of our favorite Prime Day deals so far. Amazon is practically paying you to take these earbuds away. Well, maybe not quite, but it's still an excellent saving. If you need to know more about these buds, we have a full Sony WF-1000XM3/S review.

Small but powerful, Sony’s WF-1000XM3/S offer great audio without the worry of wires, as well as Alexa Functionality, a quick-charge battery, and noise-cancellation technology so you can focus on your audio. And you get a $20 gift card too.

Sony’s entry in the wireless earbud market is one of the best, too. It offers option digital noise cancellation by picking up audio in your environment and filtering that out of what you hear. It also filters it out of your phone calls, too, so your calls sound better than ever. The WF-1000XM3/S are also compatible with Alexa, meaning you can ask the Amazon assistant questions on the fly, request a certain song, and more.

If you’re not the type to talk to a digital assistant in public (it’s OK, we get it), you can use touch controls to change track, make calls, and more, and there’s a handy ‘Quick Attention’ mode that turns the volume down and deactivates noise canceling with just a fingertip over the left earbud.

Music automatically pauses when you remove a bud and picks up where you left off, and putting both in the charging case will give you ninety minutes of playback after just ten minutes of charging - with 24-hour battery life in total before you need to charge the case, making them perfect to ‘grab and go’. There’s even an app you can install on your device to customize the audio.

These are perfect for pairing with any of the best smartphones, and they're handy for exercising, alongside any of the best smartwatches too.
