- Sony has recently launched the new WH-XB700 headphones targeted specifically at music listeners in the Sony Extra Bass series range.
- They have a long battery life of 30hrs, which is significantly higher than the competition. In addition they have included quick charge – something many users are acquainted with smartphones. A 10-minute quick charge allows for nearly 90 minutes of wireless music playback.
- Sony has added another special feature for your listening pleasure; support for Alexa or Google assistant, to provide a hands-free, voice controlled experience to users. By tapping on the custom button on the left earpad, you can command your assistant to play your favourite tracks.
- It also functions effortlessly as a call answering device, given the built-in microphone on earpads.
- Sony has kept the price of these feature rich on-ear headphones competitive at Rs. 8,990. The product is available on online and offline channels from April 15, in two colours – black and blue.
