[Bay Bloor Radio] Trade-in for $100 off $399+ Headphones -> Sony WH-1000MX3

Back again, I picked up the WH-1000MX3 last time with this sale. I believe what makes it great is you can trade in any garbage earphones, even airplane buds you get for free and you'll get the $100 off.

I don't believe this isn't the hottest deal for the WH-1000MX3, but still decent if anyone wants one now.

Sorry, I'm confused, so you trade in anything for 100$ off of 399? so it comes to 299?

I have a working but really beat up beat solo HD...will they still accept that?

Got in on this promo last year for a pair of WH-XM3s. If you like audio this place is going to be lots of fun to visit. Staff are very friendly and will demo just about anything for you.

Don't want to be a party pooper nor am I an apocalypse conspirator but considering the current Covid scare, is now a good time to waltz into a busy store to demo headphones? Buying BNIB & then return if not to taste is one thing but demo'ing multiples with direct hand/face contact isn't the most hygienic option in these present turbulent times.

Just a thought ya

Foot traffic is probably lower than usual for to the covid scare. They are likely throwing this promotion to increase foot traffic

Every time I have gone into BayBloor it has been fairly dead, its not really a place that relies on selling tons of volume as they mostly sell fairly high end equipment. Last time I was there some guy spent about $15K on speakers. Even prior to coronavirus they were cleaning headphones after each use, but I wasn't specifically talking about headphones though, they have lots of high end speakers and stuff that they are more than happy to demo for you.

I think the WH XM3 are the best ANC headphones on the market right now.
The overall SQ is pretty meh though, good for bluetooth, but a good pair of wired headphones that cost $200~ destroy it.

Sony WH-1000XM4 headphone leak hints at even longer battery life
They look the same, but could last longer

Yes but the questions are: did the original price get marked up and is 299 even a warm price for this model?

XM4s lose APTx support.

The existing XM3s already have pretty good battery life.

What the XM4s should have focused on was lighter material design using newer batteries, improved microphones and multipoint device connection.

The XM4s won't be a must upgrade from the XM3s.
