Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones

The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones were my first “splurge” purchase for my home office. I couldn’t believe I was paying so much for headphones at the time. But then I tried them on and my regret — poof! — vanished.

The WH-1000XM4 is no longer Sony’s latest and greatest (you can find those here), but they cost less (and sound amazing).
