Sony WH-XB910N : Design
For the Wise look, the Sony WH-XB910N Wireless is primarily made with a lighter weight (252g) material. Materials include synthetic leather and urethane materials that combine with the best ear pad structure and dimensions for exceptional wearability. One thing to note is that the packaging material for the WH-XB910N does not contain any plastic. Which reflects Sony’s commitment to mitigating the environmental impact of products and practices.
As a result, you can wear these headphones comfortably for a long time without damaging your ears. Moreover, the close-back and circular design relaxes comfortably on the ears and reduces background noise fluently. Like the Sony WH-1000XM4, these headphones offer a lot of portability. For small footprints the ear cup rotates 90 degrees and is flattened and folded on the hinge.
Adjust the slider to find your ideal fit and enjoy comfortable listening for hours. Music stays inside and sound stays outside for a great acoustic experience. Plush memory foam padding looks lighter, though like most other over-the-years they warm up somewhat after extended use. That said, padding helps with isolation which is more important for the listening experience. The ear cups also rotate slightly to fit better and, the blue model we are testing, there is a visible light blue accent that makes me feel a nice touch.
Sony WH-XB910N Controls
Touch controls are just as discreet as the predecessors. The left earcups come with a USB Type-C charging port with power on / off button and volume up / down buttons for volume control. The right earbuds, on the other hand, include a portable 3.5mm cable for connecting PCs, smartphones and games. In addition, one more button is included to control active voice cancellation.

360 Reality Audio works with the Sony WH-XB910N
If you have a subscription to Deezer, Tidal, Amazon Music HD or nugs.net: you can stream Sony’s library of 360 reality audio content. Using the Sony Headphones app, take photos of your ears, and the app will calculate how you change the signal to listen to your music in 3-dimensional space. It’s a really nice feature, but because the library is currently limited to about 1000 songs, you may find that it takes a while to re-master your music. Don’t worry though: once you’re done, you’ll be able to rediscover your favourite tunes from the 1970s in a way you’ve never experienced before.
Can you use the Sony WH-XB910N for Voice calls?
In my testing, my voice is very unaffected by the microphone because there is a fairly uniform load on most important frequencies. This means that my voice is being picked up well by the microphone and most of the frequency will be heard equally loudly by the person on the other side.

What is the battery life of the Sony WH-XB910N?
Sony claims that they offer 30 hours of battery life with active noise cancellation. However, in our test, the headset lasts 37 hours and 22 minutes of continuous playback at an output of 75dB (SPL). With so much battery, you’ll have enough power for multi-day road trips and long festive weekends. And if you need to top up in a hurry, the 10-minute fast charging gives you an extra time of up to 4.5 hours with an optional AC adapter.

The XB910N has Bluetooth version 5.2 and supports so-called multipoint connection. This means that they can be connected to e.g. mobile and PC at the same time, so you can use your PC for music and video conferencing and your phone for mobile calls, without having to disconnect along the way.
If you have an Android phone, it is easily paired with the XB910N by just having the headphones in the immediate vicinity. Apple users need to connect in the usual way.
What alternatives are there?
If you still want bass but can’t overcome the coolest factor in the Bose brand, you should check out Bose QuietComfort 35 II. While these are on the ears and not on the ears, they are well made and cancel out the active sound suitable for boots. The problem is the lack of proper seals that cause sub-par isolation, which is to be expected as this is on the ear. You won’t even find the codec support or transparency mode you get here, but nonetheless, Beats has done really well with this.
While the WH-XB910N is cheaper than something like the WH-1000XM4, it’s still not cheap. If you can save your penis for a little longer, it may just be worth scattering and picking yourself a pair of WH-1000XM4. It has better active sound cancellation, better sound quality and better build, but otherwise it is more or less the same. You’ll still find convenient touch-sensitive ear pads and access to multiple Bluetooth codecs with Bluetooth multipoint functionality, but the XM4 lacks aptX and aptX HD. Now that the WH-1000XM4 has come out, the older Sony WH-1000XM3 often goes on sale, and offers aptX and aptX HD support.
For anyone looking in the same price range as the WH-XB910N but wanting less bass in the sound signature, Sony also announced that the WH-CH710N has active sound cancellation, killer battery life and a similar build. To stay within the Sony realm but venture out to do something even more portable, the Sony WF-1000XM4 is an excellent pair of sound cancelling true wireless earbuds.
The “Bass Class”, Sony’s latest headphones in the WH-XB910N, are easy to hold. Out of the box, the sound is acceptable legally bass-rich and correspondingly midrange-poor, but that’s not a big problem – and there’s not much to adjust to in the app before it becomes high-notch.
The bass massages the ear canals and breathes fresh life into the rhythm, while at the same time the tonal range has upward qualities, which also benefits the acoustic instruments. Hitlist pop rarely sounds as good as here and occasionally classical orchestral pieces also work.
Noise reduction is good and speech quality is also good. The latter, however, is still a little lacking in Trevad.
