For anyone looking for ANC wireless over-ear headphones at a decent price, Sony’s WH-XB910N should be front of mind. If you’ve been checking them out, now is the time to buy as they’re on sale at Amazon for just $128, a full 49 percent off the regular $250 price.
The WH-XB910N headphones aren’t quite up to the standard of Sony’s $350 flagship WH-1000XM4 headphones, but they still deliver excellent sound quality while looking great. You get clear mids and highs, powerful bass and Sony’s 360 Reality Audio surround sound, available on select songs with Deezer, Tidal, Amazon Music HD and other streaming services. The active noise cancellation (ANC) works well though, again, it’s not quite up to the standard of the WH-1000XM4 model (which is nearly triple the price).
The WH-XB910N headphones are great for working at home, thanks to the “Precise Voice Pickup” that amplifies your voice on calls. It also offers on-board controls and an ambient sound mode so you can be better aware of your environment. It’ll last over a day thanks to the 30-hour battery life, and you can get an additional 4.5 hours with a 10-minute quick charge.
The $128 price is one of the best we’ve seen, topping the $138 deal available over the holidays last year. There aren’t many other models that can rival it at that price, so act soon before they’re gone.
