Lower pricing doesn’t necessarily mean better value and unfortunately, the Sony WH-XB900N highlights just this. Priced at Rs 16,990 (Rs 16,499 on Amazon India), the headphones do seem to provide some budgetary relief to users vying to own a great pair of wireless headphones, but unfortunately, they do so at the expense of sound quality. These cans feature wireless connectivity with the slightly archaic, at this point, Bluetooth 4.2, as well as ANC (Active Noise Cancellation). The looks and feel of the product do resemble the WH-1000XM3 but the bass is highly exaggerated and the price is cut down significantly, maybe as an attempt by Sony to capture and appease the Beats-lovers in the world. The sound profile, as the XB (Extra Bass) in the model name suggests, is dominantly bass-y. The cans offer a comfortable fit and an accompanying Android and iOS app, which is great. There’s a lot to love here, but a lot to dislike as well, especially for listeners who prefer an ‘audiophile sound profile’ rather than just booming bass.
