Product Details

Sony Gold On-Ear Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones With Google Assistant - WH-1000XM2/N

Say hello to the perfect pair of wireless Sony noise-canceling headphones. The Gold Sony On-Ear headphones are an industry leader in noise-canceling headphones, offering Smart Listening to Adaptive Sound Control. This feature automatically adjusts how you experience noise-canceling and sound based on your surroundings. When it comes to ambient sound settings, the Sony | Headphones Connect app for Apple and Android enables you to control the ambient sound settings on your Sony wireless on-ear headphones, depending on where you are. Make it easier to hear your neighbor in the office through your headphones, or ensure you tone out that airplane cabin hum, by adjusting the app. Also, those 30 hours of battery life will let this headset go a long way without any wires needed, or shift from that handy Bluetooth technology to traditional listening easily with a traditional audio cable. Ready to skip to the next track? Use tapping and swiping patterns on the right ear cup in order to control volume or jump to the next song without even needing to pull out your device.
