A freebie can come in all shapes and sizes, but when it's something particularly good, you can't help but feel a little bit triumphant right? Like you've tricked the universe – you are Loki, trickster god extraordinaire… Okay, maybe not quite that. But still.

All that to say, we've got another amazing free gift to give away with the brilliant Sony Xperia 5 V, and we think you're going to love it. With every purchase of this awesome new device, you can nab a free pair of Sony WH-CH720N Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones worth £99.99 (while stocks last), and these headphones are pretty darn good, if we do say so ourselves.

What’s the deal?

We're keeping it simple – there are no claims to make here to get your hands on these headphones.

When you order the Sony Xperia 5 V between Thursday 28th September and Thursday 26th October 2023, we'll pop a pair in with your order. So yes, you'll get your awesome new handset with free next-day delivery, and a new set of noise-cancelling headphones all in one go.

Nice and neat!

How good are the Sony WH-CH720N Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones?

I mean, this is Sony – sound and vision are what they do, right?

But aside from that Bowie earworm, the headphones have been designed for total comfort, noise reduction and of course, great-quality sound. We've done the research, after all.

What's the sound like?

In a word, awesome. Crystal clear, balanced, natural and super high-quality – largely thanks to the Integrated Processor V1 and Digital Sounds Enhancement Engine (DSEE) packed in. Yes, it's a mouthful but it means you're getting to hear every last note just the way your favourite bands and artists intended you to. And that can't be argued with, can it?

How does it do this magical thing? Well, it ain't magic, we can tell you that. When music is made, it's often compressed – and with many files, that's just the way it is. But with the DSEE helping out, the rich detail that's often lost during compression is restored to the point where it sounds just like the original – clear, natural, and absolutely gorgeous.

And that's not all – with these babies, you can tailor how you listen to make sure that every last track sounds just the way you like it. Whether you want to opt for a pre-set optimised to the genre you're into that day, or go further and create your own presets, you can do just that using the equaliser feature in the Sony Headphones Connect app.

How good is the noise reduction tech?

Now all that glorious sound would be wasted if you couldn't hear it over noise on the street, right? That's what Sony were thinking too, which is why their Integrated Processor V1 (remember that one from earlier?) and their Dual Noise Sensor work together to level up the noise-cancelling tech in these headphones. If you love shutting out the sound of the world around you, look no further.

There's also a newly developed Wind Noise Reduction Structure packed into these headphones (and the dual mics in each earcup) that works to keep the pesky breeze away from your tunes – and if that's not enough there's Ambient Sound mode, too.

Ambient Sound has been designed to use the feedback mics on board to capture (you guessed it) ambient sound as you're listening and ensure you're getting all the music without totally cutting you off from your environment. Which is handy, sometimes. You can adjust the ambient sound across 20 levels or use the smart Focus on Voice setting to chat with your mates without the need to take off your headphones. All the Sony Headphones Connect app, of course.

How comfortable are they?

Oh-so-lovely. Seriously. The Sony WH-CH720N headphones are crafted with synthetic leather and urethane and include soft oval-shaped earpads that are optimised to fit just about anyone snugly and comfortably.

They're also lightweight, at only 192g (we've had heavier phones!) and totally ergonomic so you can make the most of the brilliant battery life and keep them on for as long as you please.

What's the battery like?

We said brilliant, we meant brilliant. One charge can give you up to 35 hours of battery life, no problem – and up to 50 hours if you're not using the Noise Cancelling feature. Either way, that's plenty of power to keep you going day and night – but you can get an additional hour of battery from a quick, three-minute charge. And you can't deny that sometimes that's all the pick-me-up you need to kick back for a little longer with your music.

That's all pretty convincing, isn't it? So how long is this offer on for?

You've got a month to get a move on. If you order a brand-spanking-new Sony Xperia 5 V between Thursday the 28th of September and Thursday the 26th of October, we'll pop your Sony WH-CH720N headphones in with your order, and you're sorted.

Which means yes, you can get two jaunty new bits of tech in one go – with free, next-day delivery, no less. But act fast – it's only while stocks last!
