Why is this a good deal?

Sony is the creme de la creme of headphones brands. No one can really deny that, and these cans are currently 41% off. That's a cracking deal, especially since they've just about never been marked down this much. The lowest price on record is $128, and that was during Black Friday. No guarantee they'll reach that price again!

Why do I need these?

Let's talk about these iconic headphones. First off, they come in both black and blue — and both are on sale. On a more functional tip: The noise cancelling is seriously superb. Gone are the days of air conditioner humming and washing machine tumbling encroaching on your jams; from here on it’ll just be you and your tunes. Also, Sony’s Touch Sensor controls make it easy to play, pause, skip tracks, control volume and more with just a tap or swipe on the right ear cup. You can even answer calls with a tap when paired to a smartphone via Bluetooth. These make a great gift for the music lovers in your life (including you).

What reviewers say

"I LOVE this headphones!!!" a five-star reviewer said. "I’m a huge bass lover and the bass sounds from this headphones are awesome! And yeah, noise cancelling, it’s amazing. My apartment is under construction and it's always annoying me, but these headphones definitely help me to escape from those horrible noises!!!!"

If you’re looking for a great pair of brand-name wireless noise-cancelling headphones, the Sony WH-XB910N Extra Bass Noise-Cancelling Headphones are a great midrange pick. And the battery life is impressive — up to 30 hours at a pop. Said a fan: "The noise cancelling quality is great. The microphone works really well for calls, and I find myself using it all day for working from home. I have tried using earbuds before, but find they hurt my ears after a few hours. These over-the-ear style headphones however are really comfortable, and I can wear them all day without any discomfort. The quality of the sound while playing music is also amazing. As the title calls out, they amplify the bass really well."

One listener gave us an earful: "Bottom line, you won't be disappointed unless you want to lose your hearing at a young or old age I guess, and need honestly speaking, too much volume. I wish I had more volume but not by much. These work just fine, and it's probably a good thing they don't get louder because I'd listen to them as loud as they would go; that's just me."

These cans feature the crisp and clear audio you’d expect from a premier brand like Sony. And thanks to Sony’s Dual Noise Sensor Technology, they blocks out nearly all background and ambient sound. Serenity now!
