Sony’s more affordable noise cancelling headphones have Google Assistant and Siri built-in with a more compact build than the WH-1000XM3.
If you want a pair of noise cancelling headphones but aren’t enticed by the Bose ecosystem, Sony is a great competitor. Its flagship headphones reign king within the ANC space, and the WH-CH700N is a lightweight, portable set of headphones with a fine microphone for those who frequently telecommute to work.
Sony’s WH-1000XM3 is the cream of the crop when it comes to noise cancelling headphones. If, however, you don’t have the means or desire to spend upwards of $350, then the Sony WH-CH700N is a viable option. These noise cancelling headphones support full Google Assistant and Siri integration for hands-free commands and notification readouts. Plus, they boast excellent battery life: a must-have for nomadic listeners.
The black Sony WH-CH700N are wireless over-ear headphones designed to deliver extended listening time, noise cancellation, and convenient voice control for music lovers and media enthusiasts traveling, relaxing, or studying inside or outdoors. Their 40mm dynamic drivers utilize neodymium magnets and produce a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Bluetooth version 4.1 and NFC technology grant simple and effective wireless integration with your mobile device. An 1/8″ cable is included for battery-saving wired operation.
Active noise cancellation attenuates background noise and is selectable via a dedicated button. The built-in rechargeable battery affords up to 35 hours of wireless listening time via a full charge or up to 200 hours of standby time. Thanks to the integrated microphone and remote buttons, you can take calls and control track playback and volume without accessing your smartphone. Compatibility with iOS and Android voice assistants lets you enjoy efficient app access via voice commands.
