Sound Guys

If you love bass then these headphones are hard to beat

from Sound Guys

While they're slightly cheaper, these aren't necessarily a less expensive pair of the WH-1000XM3. They share many of the same features, but they're entirely their own pair of headphones.

Extremely comfortable, impressive battery life

from Digit

The Sony WH-XB900N is an affordable alternative to the more expensive Sony WH-1000XM3, and it does compromise on audio quality, as per our tests. The sound signature, while it may be ideal for bass-heads, is a bit too bass-y and muddy to the average consumer and especially the audiophile.

The bassiest headphones

from Pickr

If bass is one of the things you live for, the Sony WH-XB900N are definitely worth a look, as these are without doubt the bassiest wireless noise cancelling headphones we’ve heard. Seriously, bassheads will love these headphones.

Strictly for those who cannot afford 1000XM3

from International Business Times

Sony XB900N is not 1000XM3, in fact, it is far from it. For those who are looking for a great pair of headphones in the range of Rs 15,000, the XB900N certainly makes the cut. But if you have no constraints on the budget, we'd still recommend the 1000XM3. As we mentioned, XB900N is strictly for those who cannot afford Sony's 1000XM3.

Quality, wireless, noise-cancelling headphones on a budget

from Lifewire

If you enjoy an extra helping of bass, have a plus sized head, and want the best sound quality for your buck, then the Sony WH-XB900N headphones are a very attractive option. They may not feature the most robust build quality or powerful noise cancelling, but they do provide considerable bang for your buck.

More bass, less taste

These headphones have categorically too much bass by any sane metric, and their active noise cancellation is not a patch on that of the Sony WH-1000XM3. But they somehow manage to cling onto some great sound characteristics including great spatial imaging and the ability to render wide, involving scapes. We recommend upgrading to the pricier XM3 if you can, though, as this is real artery-clogging stuff.

The best of two worlds

from TechRadar

Sony WH-XB900N wireless noise-canceling headphones exist as a bridge between the company’s Extra Bass series and the premium WH-1000XM3 cans. There aren't many headphones out there in the market that are able to provide this kind of listening experience.

The Sony WH-XB900N delivers as advertised. And unlike many other extra bass headphones I’ve tested in this price range, these cans offer an impressively clean profile. Furthermore, considering that the sound performance beats the WH-100XM3, which sells for a 150 bucks more, the WH-XB900N is a solid deal. But again, if noise-cancellation is your top priority, it’s worth investing the extra cash on a headphone with more effective ANC.
