Sony today unveiled its latest addition to its family of wireless noise cancelling headphones, the new WI-C600N neckband headphones. The WI-C600N comes jam-packed with superior wireless sound quality and noise cancelling features. Digital noise cancellation with One Push Artificial Intelligence Noise-Cancelling (AINC) lets you listen to nothing but your music when you're on the move.

Sony’s noise cancelling technology eliminates loud distractions to give you a peaceful commute. Sony states that by keeping out the clamour of the outside world, you will never miss a beat with the WI-C600N and fully indulge in your favourite music. You can also choose to let in surrounding ambient sound by activating the Ambient Sound Mode which lets in just the right amount of outside noise to keep users aware of their surroundings. Switch easily between Noise Cancelling and Ambient Sound Mode with a simple push of a button.

The WI-C600N comes equipped with DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine), a technology developed by Sony which enhances the sound quality of compressed audio files by restoring high-range sound removed by the compression process.

The light-weight neckband weighs approximately 34g and fits securely and is made with an elastic material to improve wearing comfort, making them ideal for all-day wear and can be stored effortlessly in a bag.  The neckband offers a 6.5-hours battery with noise cancellation turned on and 7.5-hours battery with noise cancellation turned off.
WI-C600N also offers compact 6mm drivers keeping the earphones small for a comfortable fit, while still delivering great overall sound.  The magnetic housing also cleverly snaps the earbuds in place to keep tangled cords at bay.

With the WI-C600N, users can go completely hands-free while making calls or listening to music as it comes with a built-in microphone and is compatible with Google Assistant and Siri.

The WI-C600N also supports one-touch listening so users can stream their favourite music via Bluetooth with just a tap from their smartphone on the NFC logo of WI-C600N. One can set the sound for every song and tune the headphones with the free Sony Headphones Connect App for Android and iOS.

WI-C600N will be available across all Sony Centers and major electronic stores in India for Rs 10,990.
