Upgrading your headphones just got much cheaper: Sony’s WH-XB910N Extra Bass headphones are currently on sale for $178. Normally $249.99, that’s savings of over $70 on our favorite over-the-ear headphones. Just be sure to act fast as this is a limited-time offer.
Delivering Sony’s famously good noise cancellation, a built-in mic, and exceptionally deep bass, the WH-XB910Ns recently earned a spot in our 2022 Audio Awards as the best over-the-ear headphones to buy right now.
The headphones’ standout feature is upgraded bass, coming from a dedicated bass duct and air-tight earcups. This makes them ideal for enjoying hip-hop, electronic, house, and any other music with full low-end sound.
However, exceptional bass aside, the headphones are still some of the best on the market. Thick ear cups and a soft headband make the WH-XB910Ns comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time, and 30 hours of battery ensure all-day juice. Plus, if you need a quick recharge, the headphones can get 4.5 hours of battery with just 10 minutes of charging.
Noise-cancellation, meantime, comes from both digital and physical sound blocking, ensuring a tranquil listening experience for working, traveling, or just enjoying alone time at home. This noise-cancellation, along with sound levels like bass depth, can be customized on your smartphone using Sony’s app.
Like most of Sony’s over-the-ear headphones, you get extensive and intuitive onboard touch controls. Simply tap the earcup to pause music, or swipe to skip songs and adjust the volume. You can also place your hand over the right earcup for “quick attention mode” which temporarily deactivates noise cancellation for conversations or, say, listening to airport announcements.
If you’re in need of some new headphones — or looking for an upgrade — be sure to take advantage of the WH-XB910Ns current markdown on Amazon. It’s a limited-time offer, so be sure to grab them now before the price goes back up.
