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 Very good noise cancelling, high quality audio Disclaimer: this is my first pair of noise cancelling headphones. Noise cancelling Three functions: noise cancelling, ambient sound, off. I found them very effective at cancelling surrounding noises on the street and in the office, esp. aircon hum and continuous rumble. Voices are barely audible but obviously are not completely cut out. The insulation is OK even by just wearing them turned off. Sound quality is very good - at least to my taste. Might be argued they're a bit prominent on the bass as per Sony tradition, but to be 100% sure I'd need a double blind comparison, so take this just as a sensation. Battery life is excellent, the auto power off works well and saves a lot of energy as one would easily forget to turn them off. So far they last for at least 3 days with a regular use of a few hours a day. Bluetooth: used with Sony Xperia ZX1 Compact and Macbook Air: no problem whatsoever. The minijack wire is also very convenient to avoid bluetooth (battery saving). Controls are touch-based: to change song and increase/decrease volume you need to swipe the right earpad back/forth or up/down - double tap to pause/resume. Not intuitive unless you actually read the provided instructions :-) A quality case is provided to safely store them. Weight: reasonably lightweight for what they provide - the construction feels quite sturdy. I can wear them for hours without much fatigue. Having the noice cancelling on without music for a long time produces a sensation of "low pressure" on the ears. I don't have this sensation when listening to music. I suspect this is a psychological effect due to the near absence of ambient noise. Overall very satisfied with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I knew they would be good... But they're much, much better than I was expecting! Returning to work after a head I jury I needed something to block out background noise. I tried other ANC headphones that were useless for voices so picked these as they had the best passive attenuation...but they're also fantastic at actively blocking noise too. They also sound great and unlike the competition they're up to date on the bluetooth codec support. I've had the occasional Bluetooth drop, but that's probably down my phone rather than these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST wireless noise cancelling headphones! I “ummed” and “ahhhed” about buying these headphones. After all, £300 is a lot of money. I read all the reviews and then listened to the three main competitors for the crown of best wireless noise cancelling cans. The Bose were good, nicely made and sounded lovely. However the Sony’s sounded better! The Sennheisers had a gorgeous sound and good build but were severely lacking in features compared to the Sony’s. In the end the Sony’s were the best overall headphones. I’ve used them on several occasions now both on flights and train journeys and they are comfortable and easy to use as well as sounding great. The gesture control to mute them is a life-saver! I bought the black ones which look great but I almost went for the beige ones which were very aesthetically pleasing but I feared they would get dirty quickly given that I use them in a work capacity. Great service as ever in Richer Sounds Newcastle where Sam really looked after me. As they all always do!
