    Having used the WH-XB900N’s for about a week now, I can say that they are insanely good, I definitely can’t go back to AirPods now.
    The sound reproduction and detail even at low volumes is simply amazing, and if you enjoy rap and and bass heavy dance tracks, they kick down.
    The noise cancelling is something I thought I wouldn’t notice, but I was very impressed.
    This will cut out the background chatter in an open plan office or on a plane, it really is amazing, i love it as it allows me to jam to music and focus on my work and not hear all the other stuff going on in the background.

    The headphones charge via USB-C cable, it charges fast and the battery life so far has been incredible, gone 3 days on one charge for me using them on and off for 8 hours a day.The controls actually work very similar to the AirPods, just touch/swipe the left ear cup to pause/change volume/skip tracks and double tap to answer phone calls.Sony has a very neat app that you use to control all the features of the headphones, you can even set the app to apply certain settings to the headphones based on your location which is insane customization for a pair of headphones.

    Awesome Audio had the best price on these babies, not just in South Africa, but basically the best price I could find ANYWHERE online.
    The shipping was fast and the customer service pre-and-post purchase has been great.
