“If you’re one to enjoy a robust resounding signature and are always on the move, these pair of headphones will suit you well.”Read More
"These pack a serious punch with all of the Bluetooth codec support, ANC, long battery & the overall build of the headphones."Read More
I am used to listening to my headphones on max volume so when I got these I immediately turned them up to 100% and then played so Drake. The bass hit me so hard that I thought it was way too much and I wasn't going to like these headphones. But gradually they grew upon me.
The Sony Headphones app has an equalizer which has a clear bass slider and the configuration carries on even if you connect them to another device.
The sound is clear and crisp which decent sound stage. If you don't prefer bass then listen to them at -8 clear bass or turn the bass off completely.
The noise-cancelling does not even come close to the 1000XM3s, so if that is a priority look somewhere else. Lower frequencies are eliminated to some extent but the high pitch sounds basically pass through. If you are a traveller and take a lot of flights then this is not the ideal product for you, in my opinion.
The things that I like the most about the XB-900N are that they are super comfortable, have very long battery life and make up for a great movie watching experience. But keep in mind if you reside in places with hot and humid climate these will make you sweat like a mf.
Overall a great choice for the bassheads out there. Highly recommended.
All the Bass heads deserve this pair. Look no further boys and girls !
This is not your average headphones. I have been looking around for a perfect pair of headphones with a rich bass, perfect Hi's and Mids that's when I bumped into these bad boy. This headphones has a perfectly balanced sound signature. The bass, the mids,
hi's e everything pretty well balanced. And if that doesn't satisfy you enough, the "sony headphones connect" app pretty much does the job.
You have custom equalizer option in the app were you can pretty much adjust everything according to your preference.
If you are a bass head and also look for a rich vocals alongside, look no further. This is the one.
Talking about the ANC on this, it pretty much does the job but does not even come close to the M3s.
This could probably be the best sounding bass headphones in the market right now. You won't be disappointed.
Let me tell this first, I am a bit of a Sony fanboy. I have XB950AP (over-ear) and XB75AP (in-ear), both wired headphones. I was looking for a wireless headphone. I have tried the truly wireless ones and it gets a bit uncomfortable after a while (my outer ear starts paining after 30 mins). First I did consider the excellent XB 1000M3 but they were too expensive. I like bass and these are exactly what I wanted. Yes, the bass is a bit more than other frequencies but it's not that you cannot hear others. It's just that you hear more bass. The best thing about these are they are equalizer friendly (unlike Bose and some others). The main difference between these and XM1000M3 is the noise cancelling quality. These are not bad, but once you hear those then you would feel these are lacking. These are mid-range headphones. For the price I would rate them 4.5 / 5.
Thank you for sharing your review.
@Sony #xb900n short review:
The bluetooth is pathetic. The connection and voice stutters when on a call - happened multiple times.
The sound was stuttering even when it was playing music using spotify on SurfacePro.
Noticed, most times the sound quality was at SBC to favor connection quality, and all the high res LDAC and Aptx are pink elephants!
Not worth at all for a steep price of 16k if it can't sort out bluetooth connection and seamless sound!
It is sad to know that you are facing such issue with your headphones. Once we receive your unit we will inspect the headphones and update through email. Not to worry.
Superb. Simply Amazing! Sony is always known for making incredible products and this is no exception! Actually I was confused between this and the famous Sony WH-1000XM3. But it was old and expensive so went for this anyway and I'm really glad that I did!
Hoping these to last more than the normal ones. It's been more than a week that I'm using this and I'm loving the Bass and the extra functions this headphone provides! Also thanks to Headphone Zone these were delivered within 2 days! Thanks alot for such incredible service!
Amazing sound and top notch bass, besides full of features
Design and build quality: 4/5
The design is very similar to the XM3s which is good. The build quality is good but the plastic finish is rough which feels a little cheap. While wearing it if you scratch the surface you can hear it. A polished/smooth finish would have been better.
ANC and Music: 5/5
The ANC is one of the best available at this price range. It cuts out the low frequency noises. Though some people talking and chatter will come through. Once music is playing, you can hardly hear anything else. There is little to no cabin pressure when wearing these. While playing music there’s no pressure at all but once the music is off, you might feel it slightly. The music experience is amazing. Plus the Sony app lets you customise your pair to your preference. The extra bass is head rattling not just the audible kind. Which makes for a good spirited listening session. Although using the extra bass for a longer period is not suitable. The EQ can be customised to your likes and the bass can also be adjusted. The bass sometimes can be excessive but can be turned down if you’re not a fan of it. Overall music experience is a solid 5.
Call quality: 5/5
The mic and call quality is very good. The mic doesn’t isolate your voice very well but the voice sounds natural and is not very muffled like the XM3s. Taking calls indoors will not be a problem at all but outdoors the other person will also hear the environment but will not have any issues hearing your voice. Which is not a huge deal breaker.
These headphones have better ear cups than the XM3s and are actually more comfortable. They are also very light so you hardly feel them on your head. But due to Indian climate, it is common to develop slight ear sweat after wearing for long hours. You can wear it comfortably for 1.5-2 hours without a problem but I would recommend 5 mins break after 3 hours at max.
Connectivity and Range: 3/5
This is one area where the headphones could have done better. It only comes with BT 4.2 and the Range wasn’t very impressive. If my phone was upstairs, sometimes my headphones would lag slightly if I went downstairs. And one more major drawback is that you can only connect it to one device at a time. Switching between devices kind of gets annoying when you have 2 main devices.
The touch controls are very good.........most of the time. Has weird bug where you can pause YouTube videos on IPad using Headphones but then can’t resume.
The USB C fast charging(10 mins for 1hr playback) is a good addition but it takes about 7-8 hours to FULLY Charge. But otherwise battery life is very good. You can use it for almost 1.5-2 weeks on a single charge.
The product is also very well priced on this website undercutting all the other online shopping websites by almost 2-3k.
The owner Mr Raghav himself help me make this decision. I asked him to help me decide between the 710n and this product during an Instagram live session. So props to him for creating this website and giving us good advice. Much appreciated.
If you’re on the look out for a good pair of ANC Headphones around 15k then close your eyes and buy the Xb 900n. You won’t regret it. It has some minor downsides but once you listen to music on them with ANC, all is forgiven. And thanks to headphonezone for its amazing customer service and quick delivery.
