”Sony’s on a roll with its premium noise-cancelling headphones. This is another pair that’s going to be tough to beat.” ‘What Hi-Fi? magazine’. 5-star review. Tested at £330.

Digital Active noise cancellation - hear the music, not the transport

Combined with the closed back design and super-soft ear pads, the active noise cancellation blocks pretty much all outside noise. If you travel by 'plane, train or coach, noise cancellation headphones make all the difference. Quiet sections of music are now audible and the whole travel experience becomes more restful than ever before.

Wireless Bluetooth connection with NFC
With Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone, tablet or laptop, it's easy to make a wireless connection with these Sony Bluetooth headphones. For a speedy connection with your smartphone, the WH-1000XM2 also features NFC (Near Field Communication). Simply tap the NFC-equipped phone against the headphones and it's paired and ready to go. If you prefer, a wired connection is also included.

The highest quality wireless sound
Using the LDAC wireless audio system means these headphones are able to receive around three times more detail than ordinary Bluetooth headphones. With an improved frequency response, you’ll hear more of the music, with the quietest details easy to hear.

Plug in the cable and experience Hi-Res sound
With Hi-Res music files now more popular than ever, only Hi-Res headphones will make the most of this expansive-sounding format. Plug in the supplied cable and these Sony headphones become Hi-Res compatible. With a frequency response of 4 - 40,000kHz, the Sony's easily cover a huge frequency response. From the deepest rumbling of sub-bass to subtle harmonics that affect the way we hear top-end notes, the Sony has it covered.

Sound precision with S-Master and DSEE
S-Master HX reduces distortion and lets you hear the subtleties in the music. DSEE HX upsamples compressed music files, giving them a fuller, richer sound. Using 40mm drivers with LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) diaphragms, these Sony headphones are quick to react to the most dynamic music.

30 hours of battery life
Once charged up via the USB connection, these headphones give up to 30 hours of playback – easily enough for a week's worth of commuting. If you need charge fast, then a quick 10-minute charge will give you around 70 minutes of playback.

Fine-tune the sound
Get the Sony Headphones Connect app (available on Apple iOS and Google) and you can fine-tune the sound to exactly how you like it. Adjust the bass and select from 'outdoor stage', 'club', 'hall' or 'arena' sound presets. Virtual surround sound makes you feel even more immersed in the music. Sound Position Control lets you choose where you want the direction of the sound to come from.

Made for music on the move
Supplied with a premium travel case, the foldable WH-1000XM2 headphones make the perfect travel partner. An aeroplane adapter plug is also supplied – letting you make the most of the noise cancellation ability and enjoy your music with far less disturbance.

Take calls on your smartphone
With its built-in mic, these Sony headphones are the perfect partner for your smartphone. Compatible with both Android and iPhones, you can switch between listening to music and taking calls at the touch of the earcup.

Hear your music at its best, wherever you are, with the Sony WH1000XM2 headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding headphones! I have been using these headphones every day over a year now. I can certify they are excellent quality and have very good noise cancelling; not perfect, but probably best for the price range. I really love them and I am looking forward to buying a new version! There is a couple of things that are very annoying and it is the fact that you cannot pair them with two devices at the same time. Also, you cannot unpair it from a previous device using the app; you have to go a click "un-pair" from the last device you used it. This is annoying! Once I wasn't able to use them because they were paired to a laptop I left at the office. I was going to upgrade to the new version M3, but the new ones have this strange shortcoming as well. The other thing is the quality of calls since the microphone picks lots of noise. I am looking forward to seeing if these issues are improved on a newer version. Otherwise, excellent headphones! A must for travelling and commuting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Piece of Kit I hadn't previously had a real need for noise cancelling headphones but with a long haul round trip coming up I thought it about time. I did some shopping around and read reviews and narrowed it down to these which I found at a great price. They are so good that i have found all manner of other times to wear then even though my preference has always been to listen on my floor standing speakers. Absolutely delighted with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise cancellation is AMAZING !!! I had bought my headphones for long train and plane journeys but now I use then whenever I can, the noise cancellation is amazing and is customisable via the Android app. I love the features on the right cup to pause, forward/backward track selection and also adjust volume. I also appreciate the feature where you cover the right cup which deactivates the noise cancellation so you can hear voices of people talking to you or train announcements. The music quality is fantastic too, I hear more of the music I listen to, especially those tracks with a lot of bass which I think the Sony headphones favour. I'm summary my headphones were worth every penny, I'm currently poolside in Greece listening to music while I type this review. I would recommend to anybody.
