Sony's new headphones include wireless noise-canceling sports models

The WF-SP700N is wire-free, while the WI-SP600N and WI-SP500 feature neckband designs and stronger battery life. But, it also quietly announced something else: old speakers and headphones will also get support for Google Assistant via a software update, as spotted by AndroidPolice.

When it comes to new headphones, Sony is mainly continuing its trend of announcing wireless noise-canceling models.

Style options to suit youAlongside the truly wireless style, Sony brings out a wireless-in-ear style headphone, the WI-SP600N, to complete the collection of sports headphones you won't be able to live without.

Discount airline Allegiant adds service to Charleston
The route was announced in addition to several other routes Allegiant began offering at McGhee Tyson that year. The Sarasota and Charleston flights push the Indianapolis International Airport to 51 nonstop destinations.

Moreover, along with the noise-cancellation feature, there is also an ambient sound mode which will allow the user to hear the surrounding sounds. Along with noise cancelling these headphones feature Sony's EXTRA BASS™ sound, giving your music a deep punchy bass.

Next up, Sony introduced the WI-SP600N neckbuds that looks somewhat similar to the Google Pixel buds. Since they're not truly wireless, battery life for continuous listening is better; Sony claims they'll last 6 hours.

Both headphones feature the Google Assistant and will be launching this spring. Sony says the WF-SP700N will receive a future update and it will deliver quick access to Google Assistant. They will be available in the same four colors for $149.99. The software update will arrive later this year for the following headphone models: WH-1000XM2, WI-1000X, WF-1000X, WF-SP700N, WI-SP600N, WH-CH700N, WH-H900N. Water protection is rated at IP4X, meant to give enough protection for those sweaty workouts, but not more.
