Sony WI-1000XM2 has a wholesome sound experience and a whole lot more to offer. Be it the effective ANC, feature-stoked app, suave finish, superior build quality, and on top of all these – Sony’s brand recall. With it comes benefits like reliable customer support. OTOH, my major gripes are with the ear tip’s fit and the battery situation. The rest of the things are nit pickings TBH.

Detail-forward active noise cancellation earphones held back by challenging treble

from TrustedReviews

The Sony WI-1000XM2 are among the most effective in-ear noise cancelling headphones available. Noise-cancelling performance is excellent and despite not being intended for running, they work well enough. While sound quality is mostly good, they're undone by a treble performance that's on the forced side.

More hits than misses

from Gadgets Now

These headphones are priced on the higher side but do come with the much-wanted active noise cancellation tech, which works really well. The audio output is reasonably good and the battery levels will also not give anyone a reason to complain. If you are keen on neck band style of headphones, then Sony makes a compelling proposition.

One of the best pairs of wireless neckband-style earphones you can buy right now

from NDTV

Like many of Sony's flagship audio products, this headset is technologically capable, sounds good, and does a decent job with active noise cancellation. There are small issues such as cable noise and average battery life, but our experience with the headset was positive on the whole.

Lightweight headphones that do a fine job of blocking out noise

Sony has a tradition of giving difficult names to its headphones and the WI-1000XM2 is not any different. What is different, however, is the tech - a dedicated high definition noise cancelling QN1 processor that ensures you can block almost all sounds around you. We used ANC in Delhi Metro and busy markets and found the headphones do a fine job of blocking noise.
