EXTRA BASS™ for impressively deep, punchy sound

As part of the EXTRA BASS™ 2 range from Sony, the WH-XB900N noise-canceling 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 Canceling technology

Shut 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 collects ambient sound (traffic noise, for example) and noise-canceling 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®

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.

Wireless streaming with a Bluetooth® connection

Wirelessly stream your favorite tracks with Bluetooth® wireless technology by pairing your smartphone or tablet.

NFC™ One-touch for instant connectivity

Touch selected NFC™-enabled devices to the on-body N-mark for a quick, 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 provides 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-color accent on the housing is the perfect match. Soft cushioned ear pads offer long-lasting comfort, ideal for listening to your favorite albums, back-to-back.

Foldable design for everyday convenience

Finished listening to music for now? With their foldable design, the WH-XB900N noise-canceling headphones are compact enough to pack away in your bag quickly and easily.

Built-in mic for easy conversation

It's easy to talk, even with your headphones on — a built-in mic enables you to take hands-free calls from selected smartphones. Just double tap the housing on the right-hand headphone to answer a call and swipe up or down to adjust the volume.

Control at your fingertips

Change the track, turn the volume up or down and take or make calls by tapping or swiping the touch panel on your headphone housing. For the Quick Attention function, just touch the right housing and the music volume is instantly reduced, enabling you to hear ambient sounds — from someone asking you a question in a cafe to announcements at a train station.

Talk at a touch with Quick Attention

Communicate without taking your headphones off. Place your hand on the right housing to turn the volume down for instant conversation.

Touch panel control

Simply tap or swipe the touch panel on the headphones with your fingertip to change tracks, adjust volume and take or make calls.

Sony | Headphones Connect app

Download the Sony | Headphones Connect app to customize your listening experience. Features include an equalizer to adjust sound levels, and Adaptive Sound Control, which automatically adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation.
