The Sony WH-1000XM3 are one of the best noise canceling headphones. But the truth is that they have a fairly high price, so they are not suitable for all audiences. Now the manufacturer has presented the Sony WH-XB900N, headphones that have Sony's noise reduction technology but come with a more adjusted price .
Sony wants to boost the low frequencies in these headphones, so they have equipped them with Extra Bass technology. They also have NFC connectivity and a battery that offers great autonomy. In addition, its elegant and foldable design will allow us to always carry them with us . They will reach the European market next July with a price of 270 euros. We will know more details about them.
Same design as its older brothers but enhancing the bass
The Sony WH-XB900N sport a design practically identical to that of the Sony WH-1000XM3. The headphone housing features a touch control that allows you to control playback using gestures . We can change tracks, raise and lower the volume or make calls by touching or sliding your finger.
At the sound level, the new model incorporates the same noise cancellation technology as its older brother. They also include the Extra Bass system, which optimizes the low frequencies to offer better bass . The headphone housing contains a dedicated bass conduit and has increased tightness between the driver units and the eardrums. Thus, greater forcefulness is achieved, while maintaining vocal clarity.
On the other hand, the Sony WH-XB900N have a long-lasting battery. With a charge of about 4 hours they provide autonomy for more than a day, with approximately 30 hours of playback . In addition, with 10 minutes of charge we can listen to an hour of music.
To complete the characteristics, it is worth commenting that these headphones have an integrated microphone . This will allow us to receive calls hands-free. It will also allow us to connect with the Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa.
