LDAC supports several transmission rates according to your wireless environment. It allows you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional sound quality near to High Resolution Audio, by transmitting at the maximum transfer rate: 990 kbps (approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth audio).

Digital noise cancelling reduces a variety of ambient noise when listening to music. Two microphones built in to the headphones, one outside and one inside the housing, work with the digital noise cancelling engine to cut out unwanted sound.

These sound great. This is the first pair of noise cancelling headphones I've owned. Although I have zero experience with noise cancelling, I can tell you these are not the best. I can still hear sounds come through but that is of ZERO concern to me. They sound great! The amount of noise that may come through does nothing to change my listening experience; it's fine. I was NOT looking for noise cancelling so my expectations are not smashed. I'm EXTREMELY satisfied with these. I love them. I remember why listening to music through headphones are so great.
They are a little tight but I fully expect them to ease up on squeezing my head. They are by no means uncomfortable; just a bit snug at the moment.
They pair nicely and easily. NFC is convenient to turn them on and pair them. The Sony app is alright and gives you some added functionality.
The ability to let sound in by covering the right side with your hand is SOOOOO CONVENIENT. I figured I'd like it and chalked it up to a handy gimmick; it's wonderful. I didn't realize how handy it would be. I love it. I think I'm spoiled now.
They have plenty of bass for my tastes and the mids and highs are nice and clear. I hear everything just as I hoped.
These will get a lot of use.
I'm curious about their bigger brother, the WH100XM2. Based on my research (just reading reviews and watching as many YouTube videos I could find) I'm very satisfied with my choice. "BTunplugged" has the best comparison between the two headphones. I highly recommend watching his comparison.
These are comparable with the higher end Sennheiser (PXC-550, and HD-1) and Bose models (QC35), all of which I've tried. There's a lot of info on these headphones in other reviews, so I'll just add a few problems/details (conveniently?) not mentioned in the product description online. These were ultimately reasons for me to return this in favor of the Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless.
1. NO SIMULTANEOUS CONNECTIONS TO TWO DEVICES - *PAINFUL* FOR APPLE USERS
You can only really connect to one device at a time – with all the others I've tried you can connect your computer and phone at the same time, and phone calls and music just switch between devices seamlessly. This also means all available devices connect automatically on powering on the headphones. The H900Ns don't do this. You can indeed pair more than one device, but only one can be a "phone-call-capable" device: this is only really possible with Android devices and only after turning off music connectivity (i.e. A2DP) through the device settings. (Apparently Sony's rationale for this is that you can connect to a "music player" and a "smartphone" at the same time. I don't know how many people still have a dedicated bluetooth capable music player. You may be this unicorn).
If you have an iPhone and/or Mac you can have to go through the rigmarole of disconnecting from one device and connecting to another, which is painful if you're using this headphones for both video chats on your computer and phone calls. On practically every other bluetooth audio product I've tried, attempting a connection on a second device disconnects from the first and switches to the second. This Sony pretends to successfully connect on the second device for half a second, then just fails silently. What this also means is that if you want to fine-tune the audio settings while playing audio from your computer or other device, you have to switch to and back from your phone. Fun!
There is a downside to simultaneous connections: in an environment with lots of bluetooth signals you can get audio dropouts, and if this is your environment you'll find yourself with the opposite problem - having to constantly disconnect from connected devices. If this is you, the Sony is a great choice.
2. YOU CAN'T USE THESE WIRELESSLY WHILE CHARGING
On one hand they have great battery life, but once you look at the real battery life numbers in their manuals it's not significantly different from the Bose or Sennheisers. Basically, all of them clock in between 20-24 hours of play time with NC on. If your primary use is as a wireless headphone, then the fact you can't use them while charging could get annoying. Sony doesn't make it clear if you can use the mics while connected through an audio cable in order to be able to take a phone call while charging. I couldn't be bothered to test this to find out.
3. THE AUDIO ENHANCEMENTS ARE MISLEADING
You do have access to some fine-tuning using the Sony Headphones Connect app, BUT
- the spatial enhancements (VPT) are only available when using the lower quality SBC mode, which kind of defeats the purpose of having aptX and AAC compatibility. When turning on the spatial enhancements the app forces the connection to SBC.
- Sony claims to have technology that upsamples (or something) lower quality MP3 audio (encoded at more than 248k) such that it is equivalent to high quality audio (i.e. near lossless and/or studio quality sampling). BUT this cannot be used simultaneously with the equalizer or spatial enhancements. Since most audio at 248k or above is pretty decent already, this feature is meaningless for most people who are not audiophiles, and if you do a web search for "Sony DSEE HX" you'll realize even the audiophiles don't seem to understand what this is. And Sony doesn't explain it at all on their manual or help pages.
PROs, or small things I liked about this I wished were on other headphones
1. Tap the power button to have battery level announced at any time. The Senns can only do that when not playing audio.
2. Double tap to play/pause (is less twitchy than the Sennheiser PXC 550 I tried)
3. Cover the right headphone to temporarily reduce music and bring in outside sound
4. The volume up gesture is done right: drag and hold up and it keeps increasing the volume
5. The app allows you to determine whether you want sound quality (aptX etc.) or connection stability (SBC). Ideally the headphones should just do the right thing, but if you're having bluetooth connection issues then this setting might make all the difference.
5. The headband on these is the most comfortable I've tried, with the Bose a close second.
6. The buttons and the touch controls are on different sides, so you don't accidentally play or disconnect calls while you're trying to adjust NC or check battery.
SOUND and NC QUALITY:
Sound: - great sound! Noticeably better than the Bose; the Sennheisers sound more balanced and less punchy than these but you really can't fault the sound. Minor, but annoying – this is the only of the four headphones to NOT come with an airplane adapter.
Noise cancellation: I tried really hard to believe that these cancel more sound than the PXC 550s but I was hard pressed to tell any real difference.
