Rocking the the world is the Sony WH-1000XM2

The Sony WH-1000XM2 headphones are Sony’s 2nd-gen premium wireless noise cancelling headphones, and continue to just show why Sony has become number one..

They’re great, full complete package, that excels in every way. The price drop on amazon for this second generation makes them an even more enticing option than ever before.

Build and comfort and Style

They look quite similar to the original WH-1000XM model but there are some obvious differences. The finishes have been changed slightly, with Champagne Gold replacing the original Beige. There’s still a Black option, but it’s not quite the same.

Noise cancelling

Now this doesn’t really matter if you’re listening at ground level, but what if you’re travelling in an aircraft? The sensor detects changes in atmosphere and applies a filter to compensate.

In practice, this means you need to run the calibration software every time you reach flying altitude and run it again once you’re back on land.

Look around the edge of the left earpiece and you’ll see Sony has reduced the button count, so both the Ambient Sound and noise-cancelling features can be controlled by just one button instead of two.


The Sony WH-1000XM2s stick to a tried and trusted recipe that works a treat. They’re a superb all-round package that excel in every area.

We would willingly have paid every penny of their original premium price tag, so their being cheaper now only heightens the appeal. A show-stopping pair of headphones if ever we heard them.
