Sony WH-1000XM2 – over-ear bluetooth headphones with ANC, NFC and touch control: gallery



The third headphones we used in our A/B tests for the Valco VMK20 review. Sony WH-1000XM2 are over-ear bluetooth headphones with ANC, NFC and touch control. Very good sound, comfort, functionality and battery life. We’re not convinced about touch control and we’d prefer an audio jack that does not require a cable with a very narrow plug, but apart from that we have no complaints.
