Travel Must-Have: Sony’s New Noise Canceling Headphones

As much as I travel, noise canceling headphones are a necessity. I need something comfortable, that offers great sound, and has both wired and BLUETOOTH® technology. The new Sony 1000XM2 Noise-Canceling Headphones fit the bill and are available now from Best Buy for $349.

Features of the Sony 1000XM2 Noise-Canceling Headphones

These new noise-canceling headphones offer the industry's latest technology. I love that there's a 30-hour battery and you can select either BLUETOOTH® technology or a traditional wired technology. They also come in a handy carrying case that's easy to pack.

Here are some of the other great features of these new Sony noise-canceling headphones:

Superior Comfort and Style

The headphones are super comfortable and easy to use with a soft matte finish. They are available in both black and a sleek rose gold.

Easy Controls

Controlling the Sony Noise-Canceling earphones is super easy—everything is at your fingertip on the right headset. You can make hands-free calls, pause music and noise canceling to engage with someone (perfect for answering the flight attendant about what you want to drink), to change volume, and switch between songs.

After you download either the iOS or Android app, you can interact with Siri or the Google Assistant with just a long touch on the headset.

Listening Options

You have so many options for great listening with the Sony 1000XM2 Noise-Canceling headphones. The Smart Listening technology adjusts your music for ambient noise, so you get great sound whether you're riding in a car, on an airplane, walking in a crowd, or listening to music alone at home.

There is an airline adapter for watching those in-flight movies. Audiophiles will love that wired listening is available in addition to LDAC wireless streaming—which takes BLUETOOTH® to another level.

Atmospheric Pressure Optimization delivers great sound even when you're flying at 35,000 feet. The headphones are also optimized for today's High-Resolution Audio with S-Master HX™ technology.

Battery Life for the Sony Noise-Canceling Headphones

There is nothing worse than setting out on an international flight and knowing your headphone battery will give out somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. That's not going to happen with the new Sony 1000XM2 headphones. After a 4-hour charge, the battery will last for 30 hours of continuous music playback time and up to 200 hours of waiting time.
