If you're just looking for a simple pair of wireless cans that can block out annoying environmental sound, and you love the sound of thumping bass, these headphones could be the perfect fit.

However, you could save even more money by opting for the Sony WH-CH710N,  which feature adaptive noise cancellation. So, whether you're traveling, walking, or in a busy office, the Sony headphones will adjust the level of noise cancellation to suit your environment. 

The Bluetooth headphones also feature a built-in microphone for hands-free calls and use with your voice assistant, as well as an impressive 35-hour battery life.

The noise cancellation provided by this model isn't as effective as the WH-XB900N, so they might not be the right headphones for you if you want to fully block out the world around you.
