Sony released a new pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones called the WH-XB900N, and it's a pretty big deal.
It's a big deal because the last time Sony released a pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones - the WH-1000XM3 - they rivaled the gold standard in wireless noise cancelling headphones, the Bose QC 35.The new $250 WH-XB900N - which I'll simply call the XB900N - are essentially a cheaper version of the $350 1000XM3s. They're almost exactly what you'd expect from a cheaper version of a more expensive pair.
The build, sound-quality, and noise-cancelling on the XB900Ns aren't quite as good as the more expensive 1000XM3s. But the XB900Ns aren't that far behind, which makes them a very appealing choice for anyone looking to spend under $300 on a pair of wireless noise-cancelling cans.
