The 26 latest Sony NFC Bluetooth headsets (as of May, 2020)
The Sony h.ear in 2 has a sound-enhancing DSEE HX feature, an 8-hour working time, and high-resolution audio support in its arsenal of specs, but its vibrating neckband is perhaps the most unique thing that sets it apart from other Bluetooth headsets.
The Sony WH-H800's 24-hour battery life will likely impress audiophiles on its own, but other specs, such as support for high-resolution audio, NFC capability, and a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX feature make it appear like an even more promising Bluetooth headset.
This Sony WF-1000X Bluetooth headset may not have the best battery specs (like most other cord-free models), but its 3-hour single-charge working time is supplemented by features like an ambient sound mode, NFC support, and adaptive sound control.
This premium-class Bluetooth headset from Sony unsurprisingly sports promising specs and features, which include adaptive sound control, sound optimization based on atmospheric pressure (for in-flight use, in particular), a 38-hour music playback time (30 hours if noise cancellation is turned on), and touch controls.
The Sony WH-H900N Bluetooth headset boasts convenience-enhancing tricks like a quick attention feature and an ambient sound mode, all while having the basic specs covered -- with a 28-hour working time (with noise cancellation turned on) that comes at the price of a relatively-long 6-hour charging time.
Aside from a sophisticated-sounding atmospheric pressure-optimizing feature, the Sony WI-1000X also offers an ambient sound mode, a comparatively-lengthy (compared to most other Bluetooth headsets' specs) 13-hour maximum playback time, and only 100 hours of stand-by (with the noise-cancelling option turned off).
The NFC-enabled Sony MDR-XB950B1 promises an enhanced bass experience (compared to the average Bluetooth headset), an option for wired use, and a better-than-most usage time of 18 hours -- although its 200-hour stand-by is unfortunately not as satisfactory as its other specs.
Joining the group of high-priced Bluetooth headsets, this IPX2-rated single earbud is packed with features and specs like echo cancelling, motion control (yes/no through head movements), multi-lingual voice control, and a 4-hour playback. Sadly, it is not compatible with iOS devices.
Aside from being compatible with NFC devices, the Sony MDR-XB80BS markets itself as a user-friendly Bluetooth headset by banking on its IPX5 rating (even claiming that it is "washable") and bass-enhancing feature -- but its longevity specs (200 hours of stand-by and seven hours of usage) are obviously not the best.
Weighing only 0.76 oz, this lightweight splash-proof in-ear Bluetooth headset is NFC-capable and equipped with specs like 12mm drivers and neodymium magnets, which Sony claims to create a powerful sound experience, especially for bass-heavy listeners.
The 100ABN Bluetooth headset builds its music-oriented portfolio through features like aptX and high-res audio support, Beat response control technology for "low-end focused music styles", AI which automatically selects the level of noise cancellation based on ambient noise, and 20 hours of music playback which, to no surprise, requires a relatively-longer charging time of six hours.
Although this lightweight around-the-neck Bluetooth headset is IP57 rated (water-resistant) and made with smart memory metal (The unit remembers your fit), it mixes below-par specs like Bluetooth 3.0 with better ones, like the promise of 27 days of stand-by battery life.
The XB650BT Bluetooth headset is the mid-range model from the Sony Extra Bass line, featuring the noise-cancelling Bass Booster technology, aptX, and above-average working and stand-by times of 30 and 300 hours, respectively -- which unsurprisingly also entails twice the battery charging time
A 13-hour music time (19 hours with noise cancellation off) and NFC capability are two of this Bluetooth headset's key features, as well as its included audio cable (Sony says it provides a better sound) and a bass-distortion-control system.
