Bassheads will immediately find themselves at home with Sony’s WH-XB700 Extra Bass feature that amplifies the low-end frequencies. The great thing about it is that it manages to stay well-balanced through the mids and highs without any compromise to vocal clarity. Some may already find themselves completely at home with Sony’s sound signature, but for those looking to make distinct customizations, the Headphones Connect app allows you to toggle through its equalizer and choose among preset sound stages for club, concert hall, arena, and outdoor stage.
Spare yourself from the chore of untangling cables — the WH-XB700 can be instantly and seamless paired with any Bluetooth 0r NFC enabled device. Further allowing you to remain untethered, controls for playback, calls, and voice command with Alexa are readily accessible through the multifunction buttons on the left ear cup along with the integrated microphone. While its 30-hour battery life lets you listen wirelessly, it’s nice to have the option to go wired with a standard 3.5mm audio jack and cable when you’re in flight or when you run out of juice. You can get a full 100% charge in four hours through its USB-C port, but should you lack the time, 10 minutes of being plugged in will yield 90 minutes of playback.
Apart from the great sound and its wireless capabilities, Sony also came up with a design that delivers in terms of wearability and portability. The WH-XB700’s headband is adjustable for a precise fit while the ear cups are densely padded for maximum comfort. You’ll have no issues taking this headset on the go with a frame that swivels for easy storage. At only 6.9 ounces, it’s incredibly lightweight, and light on the budget at just $78 instead of the usual $130 from Amazon.
