Sony has added a new wireless noise-canceling headphone in its catalog with the WH-XBN900N. It is priced at ₹16,900 and is available all Sony Centers and other electronic stores. For that price, you get really good features but not as good as the Bose-beater Sony WH-1000XM3.
Although poles apart, the new WH-XB900N is cut from the same cloth as the WH-1000XM3. You find touch control that replaces the awkward button presses. Swipe to control the media you consume – Up & Down will increase & decrease the volume, a simple swipe left or right will get you previous track or next track. Double tapping will pause/play the music and it will also accept calls for you.
Users get to use the built-in voice assistants Alexa and Google Assistant. You can change the song, call people or search something through the assistants, provided you have an active internet connection. The headphones have a battery life of 30 hours and charges via a USB Type C. It does come with quick charging support that. You can top-up the cans for use of one hour of wireless playback with a paltry ten minutes of charging. The codecs available are LDAC, aptX, aptX HD, AAC, and SBC.
