Comfortably and conveniently isolate yourself with your favorite audio with these WI-1000XM2 Noise-Canceling Wireless In-Ear Headphones from Sony. Dual microphones are aimed behind and in front of you to capture as much ambient sound as possible.

Angled eartips and a fully adjustable silicone neckband make listening longer more enjoyable, and the neckband design always keeps your earbuds handy.

The quality of the audio the WI-1000XM2 Bluetooth headphones produce is engineered to be exceptional. An HD hybrid driver system utilizes 8.9mm dynamic drivers and a matched balanced armature to reproduce everything from natural highs to powerful bass. The headphones support Hi-Res Audio to play-back music that's true to the original recording, and DSEE HX technology upscales any of your compressed library files to help make them sound their best.

Long Battery Life
You get up to 10 hours of battery life on a full charge, but if you're in a rush, a quick 10-minute charge will give you up to 80 minutes of playback time.
Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing
You can wear the WI-1000XM2 almost anywhere—even on airplanes—thanks to Sony's Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing technology, which makes the headphones compatible with high altitudes.
Adaptive Sound Control
With the Sony Headphones Connect app, you can use Sony's Adaptive Sound Control and Sense Engine to automatically adjust ambient sound settings based on your situation. You can also customize the settings manually. Adaptive Sound Control can detect whether you're traveling, walking, or waiting. While traveling, background noise is eliminated. While walking, enjoy your music but still hear some sounds around you so you're safe and aware. While waiting, background noise is minimized but you'll still be able to hear important announcements.
Sony Headphone Connect
This app lets you adjust the volume of background sounds and also provides an equalizer to adjust audio levels for your music.
Digital Assistants & Hands-Free Calls
With Amazon Alexa built-in and support for Google Assistant, the WI-1000XM2 headphones give you the ability to speak voice commands to them on your mobile devices. Get information, turn-by-turn navigation, notifications, manage audio playback, and more. The built-in microphone that allows this also provides the ability for you to make hands-free calls when paired with your smartphone.
In-Line Controls
Manual controls are built into one of the cables connecting an earbud to the neckband. These controls let you adjust audio volume and switch between music and phone calls. There's an additional customizable button you can program if there's a favorite feature you can't live without.
Magnetic Earbuds
The backs of each earbuds are magnetic and snap together to keep them untangled when not in use.
NFC Pairing
You can manually pair these headphones with a Bluetooth-compatible device for wireless listening, or you can use NFC pairing if supported. With NFC pairing all you have to do is tap your device to the headphones to quickly pair them.

Sony WI1000XM2 Reviews

Excellent Sound and Noise Cancellation

By TimMc66
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-02-18

I have had many different types of neckband earbuds and these are clearly a step above the rest. Premium sound, noise canceling, and works very well for calls. I’ve had Plantronics Voyager 6200, Backbeat Go 410 and Jabra Evolve 75E. While these are all good units, they just don’t quite meet the threshold for great noise cancellation.

noy so grate!!!

These are ONLY for listening and not voice chat or voice calls Pros: Noise Cancellation Behind the ear design Flexible band Cons: TERRIBLE microphone design and placement. Absolutely AWFUL! Picks up wind in the microphone when just walking Muffled sounds and no one can hear me

Great noise cancelling but terrible user interface

I found the noise cancelling excellent but never got used to the controls being on the wire as opposed to the neckband where you always know where they are. Plus the extra weight on the wire is annoying. Additionally I could never get used to the phone button in the middle of the volume buttons and was constantly missing calls and unable to easily and reliable access my phone.

Replaced Shure SE215 For Travel

I love these headphones. As stated in the title, I replaced my Shure SE215 in-ear monitors with these. I used Shure IEM's for traveling because of the high sound isolation provided by the triple flange ear tips. I decided to go a different direction with these because all my other headphones are Sony and I've always preferred the sound of Sony. I use Sony IEMs and Sony over-ear headphones for producing, mixing, and mastering music to give you an idea of my sound preference and experience with critical listening. The noise cancellation in the WI-1000XM2 is very comparable to the sound isolation of the Shure's. I would say with the proper fit, the noise cancellation is better, unquestionably in the low frequencies. The sound of the WI-1000XM2 is excellent. Slightly bright but not overbearing and certainly not lacking in bass. Detailed, clear, and balanced. I've already used them for traveling and love them, especially on planes. This is my first neckband headphone and it doesn't bother me. I might even say I prefer it as they can remain around my neck without constant stowing. Also, the cords to the earpieces are short won't tangle :) The build quality is excellent. I highly recommend them!

Terrible Bluetooth connection

I have so many Sony product and I loved them all, but this headphone make me sick, sound quality is not as good as previous model and Bluetooth connectivity is horrible I can’t even answer my phone, It doesn’t stay connected, it just keep dropping of from.

Great. Microphone excellent (with 1 trick).

Great build quality and lots of convenience factors make it a pleasure to use. (For ex., hit the off button briefly to check remaining battery life.) Excellent sound quality, perhaps a little deficient in the highs, which can be tweaked with the app. To improve telephone microphone quality, listen with the right earpiece and allow the left earpiece to hang over your chest with the microphone up (which is how it falls naturally). Microphone sound will be outstanding on the other end.

Bad and expensive

Bought them, took me 4 months, than left headset malfunctioned (not making a good contact inside i guess, interrupts randomly), i had a credit note for it after 2 service interventions. Overall sound quality is good but LOW, headsets are very unconfortable, call quality good though, battery decent, price very high for those features, honestly! i can see im not the only one who had issues with it!
