It goes without saying that the Sony WH-1000XM5 is one of the best wireless headphones that you can get right now. But there’s no denying that the ANC-enabled flagship of Sony is a little on the expensive side. Well, Sony heard your demands. It just released the Sony WH-CH720N, which is basically a budget version of the XM5.

Wondering how much of a budget-friendly option is it? Well, it managed to knock $250 off the WH-1000XM5. That is, the Sony WH-CH720N comes at just $150! Yes, it is that cheap! But is it any good though? If so, what is actually making it so great that it is currently being compared with the WH-1000XM5?

V1 Processor Is the Main Selling Point of the Sony WH-CH720N

The integrated V1 processor from Sony made a lot of noise when it came out. It is not only in the WH-1000XM5 but also in the WF-1000XM4 earbuds. Both of them are high-end options. Well, the same processor is inside the WH-CH720N. And it does not even have a high-end price tag!

But what does the Sony V1 processor do? Basically, it improves the noise-canceling performance. It analyzes the external noise around you and does its magic to offer you the most distraction-free listening. And the best part is that it does not even have a high power requirement.

So, does that mean that the Sony WH-CH720N will offer the same noise-canceling performance as the WH-1000XM5 and WF-1000XM4? The WH-CH720N might not, but it will be at least close to the ANC performance of the $400 headphones or earbuds. Wondering why the performance will not be the same?

Well, the Sony WH-1000XM5 utilizes a total of eight microphones along with the V1 processor for ANC. The Sony WH-CH720N, on the other hand, has four microphones. That is the same number of microphones as the WH-1000XM4. So, you can expect the ANC performance of the WH-CH720N to be similar to that.
