The Sony WH-XB900N noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones are part of Sony’s EXTRA BASS series, a popular choice for clear sound lovers. If you’re looking for absolutely flat and balanced sound, look elsewhere — Sony is playing to the bass crowd here. But these headphones sport a lighter, more streamlined design than previous EXTRA BASS models.
They also play music wirelessly from your phone and feature active noise cancellation to knock out external distractions. Sony’s internal circuitry helps cancel out the commotion around you, so you can focus on the forceful bass. Our customers who prefer that low-end emphasis generally review the Sony EXTRA BASS series well. They describe the bass as tight and hard-hitting — not bloated or unruly — so it enhances the overall energy of the sound.
A convenient way to hear others
These headphones share one of my favorite features of Sony’s best-selling WH-1000XM3 headphones, called “Quick Attention.” It lets you instantly hear important ambient noise or voices. Temporarily turn off all audio and noise-canceling technology by simply placing your hand on the earcup. Tiny built-in mics will pick up external sounds and voices.
The right earcup also has a snappy touch-sensitive panel. You swipe and tap your finger on the earbuds to control music, calls, and noise cancellation.
Mobile app and battery life
Download the free Sony Headphones Connect app to your phone, and you can customize the sound to suit your listening preferences. Tweak the equalization, sound presets, and more. You can even choose MORE bass.
The long-lasting battery is a great touch — you get up to 30 hours of wireless noise-canceling use on a full charge. You also get a 3.5mm audio cable if you ever want to go “old-school” and plug these babies into a headphone jack.
