Post the inclusion of ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) technologies, integrating smart assistant in headphones emerged as the next big thing in terms of what headphones could offer. A voice assistant is crucial as it not only allows you to manage your music and calls with just your voice but also lets you listen to other general updates like weather reports or directions during navigation. If you have been looking for such a pair of headphones, here is a list of premium headphones with smart assistant integration that you should consider buying from Amazon.in.
