“Comfort is good, noise cancelling is good only real issues is when walking around with noise cancel active and no other sounds you here thumping noise and when a fan is blowing you get a wind noise in headphone ear pieces. Great product otherwise with decent bass but not my type of desire.
Sent back for return which Amazon has received but still no credit issued on returned product.”

“These Sony WH-XB910N Extra Bass Noise Cancelling Headphones have a lot of great features. The battery life is excellent — 30 hours and then another 10 min charge can give you an additional 4.5hours. They integrate with Alexa and Google. The sound quality is great too — I really enjoy the extra Bass — it definitely comes through. The Dual Noise Cancelling works well too and they are comfortable to wear. But they are a bit round and can look bulky. Overall great Sony Quality with the bonus of Extra Bass!”

“I really wanted to like these as I had an old pair of Sony headphones that have been the best ones I have ever used. They lasted so long that I even bought replacements for the pads that go over the ears. The band that goes over the head snapped and that was the day they were done. Fast forward many years I decide to buy these for my birthday. I really liked them in the beginning. I’m having this issue where I pause my music on them and come back a few minutes later and the music is paused on my phone but on the headphones it’s playing music at an accelerated rate very quickly. I press play and forward and backward and it keeps happening. I have to close the music app complex and reopen it for the issue to stop. I have used the same music app on 4 or 5 different headphones and never had this issue. It’s pretty annoying and especially for the price to have an issue like this. Don’t think I will be buying Sony in the future.”

“I love this product. I was considering saving for the WH-1000XM4’s, but I wanted a pair of Sony headphones really bad. So I bought these when they were $100 off, and I do not regret it.
Great features and sound quality is amazing. Voices are clear, bass is very thumpy, and the volume definitely gets up there. I mainly use them for gaming, listening to music, and watching videos. I have no problems using these for any of these activities. The noise cancelling is mind-blowing. These are my first pairs of ANC Headphones, and I am very impressed. It blocks out taps and clicks and outside voices are barely heard. The feature where you can put your hand over the right earcup and it brings in outside audio I super useful. When someone walking in my room to talk for a second, I can just hold my hand there for the conversation. If it is a little more than just a short convo, i usually turn on the Ambient sound mode for eaiser listening without taking the heaphones off.
The build quality is also amazing. The earcup rotation is very nice for when i’m not using them and can hang them around my neck. The hardshell travel case is super, super nice. When i’m done with them, I always put them in the case because if anything happens, they are very safe.
Comfort wise, I am very impressed. These fit around my ears perfectly and do not hurt after long periods of time wearing them. When I put them on, I can feel the earcups griping onto my ears not too much, but not to the point where they will fall off my head. This definitely helps play a huge role in the sound quality and noise cancelling. It makes it so much better and just a much more imersive experience.
Overall, these are very high-quality headphones. I would recommend them as first-time ANC Headphones if it wasn’t for the $248.99 price tag. But if you ever see these at a much lower price and are looking for high-quality, comfortable headphones, these will not disapoint.”

“Bought as a replacement for Sony WH-900n headphones which I ran over by accident with my car!! Only problem with them was earpads that would deteriorate after about 6–8 months. This replacement headphone appears to have the same earpads but sounds as good as the 900n headphones. The wind noise filter on the app works better than the 900n headphones but the overall ambient sound reduction is not as good. However, I prefer these headphones as I use them while walking and the wind in Hawaii can be very brisk at times. I would rather hear traffic noise than wind noise! Will buy again.”

“I’ve noticed some reviews saying there’s no bass.
There’s an equalizer to adjust all the bass you want or don’t want.
Noise canceling is a charm, enjoy your music or movie.
Ambient is also great, because you get walking out or whatever you want to do, and still be aware of your surroundings. The mics on the headphones allows the background sound in.
Then you have the controls on the right side, which is handy and simple.
And yes you can do video chat, phone calls, and ask Google or Alexa.”

“This is my second NC headphone I bought. The first was the Harmon Kardon. These just feel more comfortable and I really like the way to control the sound. Sound quality is excellent and I mowed the lawn with them on and barely heard the mower, that’s how good the noice cancelling is! It has ambien sound also and you can turn off noice cancelling. There are just enough quality features on this vrs the HK ones that made me switch to Sony. Update (2 months later): Still like them for game playing, but any movement and they rattle inside the ear pieces. This eliminates walking, treadmill, exersizing, everything except playing games, reading a book, and not moving. That’s a bummer……”

“These headphones have excellent sound quality and noise canceling. I tried them after pairing them with my iPhone using the Sony app. Music from the Apple Music app sounds great and noise cancellation is very good. There’s a button on the headphone that allows you to turn off noise cancellation which comes in handy when you want to hear some of your surrounding.
These headphones come with a USB-C charging cable and an audio jack for hardwired connection to a sound system.
I really like these headphones and can recommend them.”

“First off I’d like to say that I do love my headphones. The bass and sound quality is amazing. Noise canceling? You can still hear without the music playing, it’s just not as loud. Also I have found out that when I walking, there is loud thumping noise in the headphones that kind of hurts my ears so I won’t be wearing them to the gym. The overall quality of the headphones seems very cheap and plastic. I would buy them again but only when they’re on sale.”

“After about 10 months of minimal use with these headphones, the side cover started to crack and come apart. Sony warranty clearly states that it will cover any materials due to defect or poor workmanship under normal consumer use. I barely use these headphones since I have a pair of Sennheiser HD58X and AirPods Pro. I only use these on planes for the noise cancelling or if I want to have a wireless headphone walking around the house. Very disappointed that these are starting to break after such minimal use and with a pretty high price tag. More disappointed that Sony did not offer to fix it even under warranty.”
The above is the real user review of Sony WH-XB910N headphones. Generally speaking, it is a good walking headphone, but its disadvantages are obvious.After all, its earmuffs are still quite thick, which makes the ears feel hot and uncomfortable, and it don’t has waterproof performance, which the headphone easy to be damaged after a long time.Its price is also on the high side.Therefore, if you want a comfortable wearing experience, Wissonly Hi Runner bone conduction headphone with open ear design and high cost performance are recommended.
Wissonly’s team has been researching headphone products that don’t hurt the ear as early as 10 years ago and introduced bone conduction technology into the field of headphones. Their products have powerful performance, high-cost performance, and are very strong in core performances such as sound quality, sound leakage reduction, and waterproof level.
Hi Runner bone conduction headphones are open-eared and worn directly on the temples, so your ear canal is completely open, which makes it easy for you to hear the sound of cars and traffic lights outdoors in sports scenes such as running and walking, making you safer to use.
In terms of fit and comfort, the whole frame of Wissonly Hi Runner is made of adjustable aviation grade titanium steel, which can adapt to different sizes of head circumference and ensure the stability of wearing. Its earphone surface is made of high-tech low-sensitivity silicone material, which contains no chemical components to avoid allergic phenomena. The overall touch of the earphone is as silky as baby’s skin, avoiding uncomfortable situations when worn for a long time. Moreover, its weight is very light, less than 30g, and it will not feel heavy when worn. After wearing it, I took it off at the end of the run. This Hi Runner didn’t let me have any extra adjustment. As the flagship model of outdoor sports of Wissonly brand, it is the most comfortable and cost-effective one among all bone conduction at present.
When you sweat a lot when running or doing other sports, or when it suddenly rains when you run or exercise outdoors, then the waterproof performance of sports headphones is very important.As the flagship model of Wissonly,the waterproof grade of Wissonly Hi Runner Sports Bone Conductivity Headphone reaches IPX8 waterproof grade higher than the industry standard. It allows the wearer to work normally when swimming or diving, not to mention sweat prevention or ordinary waterproof.
It is also equipped with 32G body memory, which can store 5,000 songs, and supports Bluetooth and MP3 working modes. You can use it as a Bluetooth MP3 player for underwater sports or scenes without a mobile phone.
Hi Runner is the flagship product of Wissonly, and its overall function is also the most perfect. In terms of sound quality, this bone conduction earphone uses the latest research results of wissonly laboratory, which increases the vibration area of the vibrator by 35%. At the same time, it also optimizes the sound transmission direction to make the sound more concentrated and the music more spatial, and it has a good performance in both high and low notes.
Wissonly has made a lot of efforts to reduce its sound leakage. Its all-wrapped design reduces the vibration of the shell, and through structural optimization, the sound waves of the sound leakage are cancelled, thus avoiding 90% of the sound leakage. Wissonly Hi Runner’s sound leakage performance is much better than that of the same gear bone conduction headphones on the market.
In terms of price, it only costs $99.99, which is very cost-effective!
