Sony India on Wednesday expanded its noise cancellation headphones line-up with the launch of WH-CH700N in the country at Rs 12,990. The Artificial Intelligence noise cancellation (AINC) technology in the headphones analyses background sound and adjusts it for optimal performance on aeroplanes and other noisy environments, Sony India said in a statement.
The headphones are equipped with a built-in microphone for voice assistant commands and hands-free calls. The battery delivers up to 35 hours of power (depending on music settings) and is rechargeable via USB, claimed Sony, adding that the new headphones will be optimised for Google Assistant with an update.
The headphones are also equipped with a quick charge technology that gives 60 minutes of playback from 10 minutes of charge, it added. Furthermore, Sony India also revealed that the headphones would gain support for Google Assistant in the future with a software update.
Sony is known for some great audio products in the past, but the company didn’t have an affordable option to the customers. Sony’s WH-1000XM3 are the best headphones of 2018 and they’re priced at Rs 29,990 right now. Finally, Sony has brought value for money proportion in the form of WH-CH700N. However, it will be interesting to see how they perform in real life.
