Hear every note with EXTRA BASS™
With exceptional bass and advanced noise cancelation, WH-XB900N headphones put the attention firmly on the music. Allow your party for one begin.
EXTRA BASS™ for impressively deep, punchy sound
As part of the EXTRA BASS™ 2 range from Sony, the WH-XB900N noise-canceling headphones improve all your low-end frequencies for exceptional bass. A dedicated bass duct on the headphone housing and improves air-tightness between the driver units and eardrums help to create precise, punchy rhythms that lift every track. Yet the headphones also keep vocal clarity for a wonderfully rich, well-rounded listening experience.
Noise Canceling technology
Block out the world and enjoy your own party for one with digital noise cancelation, plus EXTRA BASS sound quality.
How it works
A small microphone inside the headphones gathers ambient sound (traffic noise, for example) and noise-canceling circuitry analyzes its signal waveform (A). The headphones then produce 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®
Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth® wireless technology eliminate the need for wired connections and complex setup sequences. Easily touch your NFC-enabled device to the headphones for a quick, seamless connection, then start streaming your music collection. No NFC? No problem. Link via Bluetooth® and you're ready to go.
Wireless streaming with a Bluetooth® connection
Wirelessly stream your favorite tracks with Bluetooth® wireless technology by linking your smartphone or tablet.
NFC™ One-touch for instant connectivity
Touch selected NFC™-enabled devices to the on-body N-mark for a fast, seamless Bluetooth® connection.
Long battery life for all-day power
A charge of around 4 hours keeps you powered all day with approximately 30 hours of play time. Or a 10-minute quick charge offers up to 60 minutes of listening.
Sleek design and long-listen comfort
Whatever your look, the simple, sleek, sophisticated design of the WH-XB900N noise-canceling headphones with a one-colour accent on the housing is the ideal match. Soft cushioned ear pads provide long-lasting comfort, ideal for listening to your favorite albums, back-to-back.
