February 16, 2024 – Sony’s newly certified Bluetooth headphones, carrying the model number YY2981, are anticipated to be the successor of the WH-XB910N (model YY2951), tentatively named the WH-XB920N. This upcoming model boasts support for Bluetooth 5.2, offering improved connectivity and range.

Recent sightings of the headphones at ATT Bolivia have revealed some intriguing technical specifications. According to the agency’s findings, the headphones exhibit a Bluetooth BDR output power of 4111 mW and a Bluetooth LE output power of 3819 mW.

Sources also indicate that the WH-XB920N will feature Bluetooth multipoint connectivity, allowing users to seamlessly switch between audio sources from different devices.

In terms of design, the headphones are rumored to ditch touch controls in favor of hardware buttons for volume and music playback. Another noteworthy addition is the inclusion of Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), a significant upgrade from the digital noise cancellation offered in its predecessor. This enhanced feature promises to provide superior external noise suppression.

Battery life is also a strong suit of the WH-XB920N. With ANC enabled, the headphones are expected to offer up to 35 hours of continuous playback, thanks to a 520mAh battery. Furthermore, a built-in quick charging capability promises to deliver an hour of playback with just 3 minutes of charging.

As for audio processing, Sony is rumored to equip the WH-XB920N with a V1 integrated chip, responsible for handling DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) and overall sound quality. The headphones are also expected to retain features like DSEE for audio upscaling and Bass Boost for an enhanced low-frequency response.

Color options for the Sony WH-XB920N are rumored to include black, blue, and white, catering to a wide range of personal preferences.
