The Japanese do not let customers who prefer an active lifestyle get bored. First, speakers, then a camera with a FullFrame matrix Axnumxr iv, and now the Sony WH-XB900N wireless headphones. And all with the last word of technology, and even with a huge and necessary functionality.
After the failure in the market of LED TVs and smartphones in 2018, Sony decided to rehabilitate the name of its own brand in the multimedia technology market. Recall that the transfer of production facilities to China greatly spoiled the reputation of the Japanese corporation. In terms of quality, LCD TVs and smartphones, at a consistently high price, dipped so low that even ardent Sony fans switched to Samsung products.
Sony Wireless Headphones WH-XB900N
It's hard to imagine unlimited power, deep bass, unsurpassed quality and the absence of wires in one device. There will certainly be doubts. After all, this is impossible. Leave your doubts behind, Sony has managed to combine all the criteria and make an attractive price for headphones. Total 250 US dollars.
The full range of frequencies recognized by the human ear. No whistling or hissing at high frequencies, deep and dynamic bass. Listening to the songs is fascinating. A voice is heard, all the instruments. Music lovers who praise Dynaudio acoustics to heaven will certainly agree that the Sony WH-XB900N headphones are no worse.
Manufacturers of gated headphones always boast of the quality of composite materials, eliminating the collection of noise from the outside. They just forget that the oscillating waves cannot be stopped even by a concrete barrier. Sony made it easier - We installed a digital noise reduction system. The unit built into the wireless headphones can distinguish noise from the outside and simply neutralizes it.
A rather strange solution was chosen by technologists for wireless music transfer. The Bluetooth version of 4.2 is considered obsolete (2014 year). And it would be more pleasant to see the latest version of the protocol (5.0) in the headphones. As it turned out, Sony Corporation calculated everything. Users with gadgets that support the Bluetooth 5.0 protocol, only 12%. And mobile devices, including portable players - as much as 85%.
But support for NFC technology is not entirely clear. A secure communication channel at a distance of 20 centimeters is a strange solution. Is that screw the smartphone with tape to the headphones. Perhaps following fashion trends, Sony has decided not to give in to an advanced customer.
But, not so simple.
The Japanese took the lead - NFC is needed to authorize a Bluetooth connection. Cleverly. Given the time it takes to find and connect the playback device with the headphones, a quick and secure connection looks very interesting. Rumor has it that Sony borrowed similar technology from Blackberry, which had sunk into oblivion. Canadians promoted similar things back in the 2011 year, but the technology has not received worldwide fame.
The best solution for an active lifestyle
A sore subject for wireless headphones is autonomy. After all, most manufacturers indicate this parameter, focusing on the average volume of music playback. Some promise - 40 hours, others - 36 hours, but in fact, rolled bass, and the battery died in 8 hours. Wireless headphones Sony WH-XB900N are aimed, according to the passport, to 35-hour continuous sound reproduction. Moreover, at maximum volume, and even with powerful bass.
Convenient folding design, excellent acoustic data, wireless technology - the Japanese attracted attention. Just do not forget that to obtain high-quality sound you will need an appropriate source. And here it all depends on the user. If you use headphones with consumer technology, it is unlikely that the playback quality will be a pleasure. Cool headphones need an appropriate gadget.
