Sony launches cheaper noise-canceling wireless headphones with extra bass
If you're in the market for a pair of premium noise-canceling headphones, there aren't a lot of options in the $300-$350 price range. Two companies have distinguished themselves for bringing top-notch products to audiophiles: Bose and Sony.

Still, if you can't afford to pay for a pair of Sony WH-1000XM3 or Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II, a new pair of noise-canceling headphones will be available for purchase for a much lower price.

Announced earlier today, Sony's WH-XB900N offer a more accessible alternative for those who need noise-canceling technology. They cost just $250 and offer similar features as the company's premium 1000XM3 headphones, plus extra bass (hence the XB model name).

Design-wise, they feature a foldable design and touch panel controls on the headphone housing. Of course, Sony's WH-XB900N Extra Bass wireless headphones include a built-in microphone for use with Google Assistant. They also pack NFC (Near Field Communication) and Bluetooth connectivity.

As far as battery life goes, Sony claims its new headphones should offer up to 30 hours of playback time on a single charge. Also, a charge of around 4 hours will keep the headphones powered all day, which is quite impressive.
