Sony introduces new Extra Bass headphones that offer an enhanced audio experience


Sony has introduced the WH-XB700 headphones, the latest product in its popular Extra Bass series which includes numerous improvements across the board.

The new wireless Sony headphones offer an improved audio experience including vocal clarity and a more indulgent music quality.

On the design side, the Sony headphones have sleek swivel ear cups that can also be folded flat to make them easier to carry around.

The WH-XB700 offers up to 30 hours of listening on a single charge and also has a new quick charge function which can offer 90 minutes of power after just a 10 minute charge.

Also onboard is Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa for users to access a hands-free voice-controlled experience by tapping the custom button on the left earcup to access their preferred voice assistant to access information or to play their favourite tracks.

And with the Sony Headphones Connect app, you can customise your listening experience even further by adjusting Clear Bass, Surround (VPT) and Sound Position Control.

The Sony WH-XB700 headphones will be available in April and will be priced at $249.95.
