Along with the WF-C500 wireless earbuds, Sony has also launched the WH-XB910N over-ear headphones. The headphones, which are aimed at bassheads, feature a dedicated bass duct and Dual Noise Sensor technology for improved digital noise cancelation.

Sony says the headphones can last up to 30 hours on a single charge, and a 10-minute quick charge can provide up to 4.5 hours of additional playtime with the optional AC adapter.

Sony's new WF-C500 and WH-XB910N headphones can now be pre-ordered from Sony Electronics, Amazon, and Best Buy. While the WF-C500 earbuds have been priced at $100, the WH-XB910N headphones are available for $250.
