Sony WH-1000XM2 Wireless Headphones Outlast Bose

Sony WH-1000XM2 wireless noise-canceling headphones in gold on woman

Sony just released the WH-1000XM2 wireless noise-canceling headphones for $350, which claim 50% more battery life than the Bose QC35 II headphones at the same price point. Sony bundles a slew of audiophile features including support for Hi-Res Audio, Ambient Sound mode, Personal Noise Cancelling Optimizer, and the Quick Attention Mode to provide a premium listening experience. The WH-1000XM2 adds compatibility with Sony’s Headphones Connect app for Noise Cancelling performance upgraded with the world’s first Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing, Ambient Sound Control, an Equalizer, Surround and Sound Position control.

Sony claims the WH-1000XM2 lasts up to 30 hours during wireless listening or up to 40 hours with a wired connection and noise cancelling. A Quick Charge function can add up to 70 minutes of battery life in just 10 minutes. Extended battery life is the biggest advantage over Sony’s identical looking MDR-1000X wireless headphones released last year — now priced $50 less.

Other nice touches on the Sony WH-1000XM2 and MDR-1000X include tap controls on the side of the headphones. You can change the track, turn the volume up or down and take or make calls by tapping or swiping the panel with your fingertip. For easy travels, swivel designed earcups fold neatly into the carry case along with the cable.

Price and Availability

The Sony WH-1000XM2 wireless noise-canceling headphones are available now for $349.99 in black or gold.
