Sony has announced a new addition to its EXTRA BASS series, bringing wireless headphones with digital noise cancellation, voice assistant support and up to 30 hours battery life directly to your eardrums.
There’s no cool name to remember, and WH-XB900N wireless noise cancelling headphones is quite the mouthful; so taking note of the sleek, foldable design is your best bet for locating these bad boys when they arrive in Australia August 2019 priced at $399.
Like all Sony EXTRA BASS gear, the latest addition is specifically designed to deliver powerful, deep and punchy bass response for dance, dubstep or whatever the kids are listening to these days. For comparison, EXTRA BASS tech is also featured throughout Sony’s portable wireless speakers and high-power audio systems.
Digital Noise Cancelling cuts out ambient noise so you can hear more detail in every track. For those situations where you need to listen to your surroundings or are forced into a conversation, simply touch the right ear cup to lower the volume of the music or podcast. The touch controls expand beyond volume as swiping also plays a song, pauses, goes back, skips forward and adjusts the volume.
The EXTRA BASS headphones are optimised for Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and smartphone-native assistants like Siri. The voice assistance is a useful hands-free alternative to the touch controls.
WH-XB900N headphones provide up to 30 hours of music with wireless freedom, allowing bass-heads to immerse themselves in music all day and into the night. The quick-charge function provides up to one hour of wireless playback after just ten minutes of charging.
The new Sony EXTRA BASS wireless noise cancelling headphones are available in black and blue colourways when they launch this August.
