The wireless headphones feature the crisp, clear audio you’d expect from Sony. Sony’s ‘Dual Noise Sensor Technology’ blocks out nearly all background and ambient noise.

These make an impressive gift (they’ll think you spent a fortune).

Wireless earbuds and headphones
Earbud shoppers are looking for excellent audio, first and foremost. These Samsung Galaxy Buds+ — which are on sale for just $100 ($50 off!) for pre-Black Friday — offer crisp sound and punchy bass for up to an impressive 11 hours per charge (plus get an additional 11 hours with the included wireless charging case). That's nearly a full day of use! No time for a full charge? You can actually get an hour of playback with a three-minute quick boost. This comes in handy when you're about to go for a run and your buds are at zero.
Calls sound crystal-clear thanks to three microphones (two outer and one inner) that reduce ambient noise even in a busy location. "The new buds offer an additional mic and unreal battery life...." shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "The ambient mode is greatly improved and one of the best I’ve tried with in-ear buds. Sound is still tight and crisp...."
