EXTRA BASS™ for impressively deep, punchy sound

As part of the EXTRA BASS™ range from Sony, the WH-XB900N noise cancelling headphones enhance all your low-end frequencies for exceptional bass. A dedicated bass duct on the headphone housing and increased air-tightness between the driver units and eardrums help to create precise, punchy rhythms that lift every track. Yet the headphones also maintain vocal clarity for a wonderfully rich, well-rounded listening experience.

Noise Cancelling technology

Shut out the world and enjoy your own party for one with digital noise cancelling, plus EXTRA BASS sound quality.

How it works

A small microphone inside the headphones collects ambient sound (traffic noise, for example) and noise cancelling circuitry analyzes its signal waveform (A). The headphones then generate an inverted waveform that is the exact negative of the ambient sound (B). By overlaying the original sound with the inverted sound (C), they neutralize each other — so the only thing you hear is your music.

Enjoy wireless freedom with NFC and Bluetooth® technology

Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth® wireless technology remove the need for wired connections and complex setup sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled device to the headphones for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming your music collection. No NFC? No problem. Connect via Bluetooth® and you're ready to go.
