For people who don’t want to drop $300-plus on a pair of noise-canceling headphones, the Sony WH-XB900N are a great cheap alternative. They were just released in June 2019 and you can think of them as the affordable sibling to the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones.
The WH-XB900N don’t have quite the premium build quality and they don’t sound as great, but they are able to produce more bass (the “XB” stands for “extra bass”). They’re also significantly cheaper, starting at $248. And today Amazon has slashed that price in half.
