Value-packed noise-cancelers with convenient features The lightweight Sony WH-CH710N wireless noise-canceling headphones boast a loaded set of features for this price. Not surprising. Sony has quite the reputation in this category. In fact, many Crutchfield customers consider their premium WH-1000XM3 model to be the absolute best in class. While you shouldn’t expect that same top-level performance or build quality here, there’s a lot to like about the WH-CH710N. You get a well-padded, relaxed fit and music plays wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0 — the strongest, most reliable Bluetooth yet. And Sony’s active noise cancellation helps keep external distractions at bay. (A must-have if you’re working from home and have kids like I do.) Long-lasting battery You get up to 35 hours of wireless noise-canceling use on fully charged battery. Great for those of us who constantly forget to recharge our headphones. Good news if you do run out of juice: 10 minutes of recharging provides enough power for over an hour of listening. (You can even go “old school” and plug them into a headphone jack with the included 3.5mm audio cable.) Sound tuned for strong bass I haven’t heard these headphones yet, but they feature 30mm drivers tuned for clear highs and hard-hitting bass. I should have firsthand impressions soon. Sony’s signature pleasant fit I always like the way Sony over-ears fit. I haven’t had a chance to try the WH-CH710N headphones yet, but I have worn the model they are replacing. Those stayed in place well, but never clamp too tightly — crucial if you wear glasses like I do. Sony slightly tweaked the headband and oval ear cup designs this time around, so I expect they should feel even more comfortable. Buttons on the right ear cup give you control over music, calls, and noise cancellation. Free mobile app for Apple® and Android™ phones Download the free Sony Headphones Connect app to your phone, and you can customize the sound to suit your listening preferences. Tweak the equalization, sound presets, and more. You can even choose MORE bass. Easy earcup controls for music, calls, noise cancellation — and awareness Press a button on the right earcup to choose the appropriate level of noise cancellation for your surroundings. That same button will activate “Ambient mode.” This uses the built-in mics to let in important external noise or voices, while the music keeps playing. There are also buttons to control your music and volume. If a call comes through, simply hit the answer button and take the call through your headphones.
