* Sony WH-CH720N is a replacement to the mid-range CH710N headphones.
* The new pair offers similar specifications of audio and features.
* However, it is significantly lighter than before.
Sony India has announced the launch of a new pair of headphones in India that will replace the outgoing WH-CH710N mid-entry level pair of active noise cancellation headphones.
Called Sony WH-CH720N, the headphones are the next generation of Sony’s third tier of over-ear headphones — after the flagship 1000X series and the mid-premium 900 series of headphones.
While Sony also launches an ‘XB’ labelled ‘Extra Bass’ pair of headphones simultaneous to the ‘CH’ line, the latest launch caters to those who prefer a more balanced sound output, and not extra bass.
Today, Sony announced the WH-CH720N wireless noise-canceling headphones in India. The new headphones feature superior noise-canceling, a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE), Dual Noise Sensor technology, Sony’s Integrated Processor V1 chip, and other features.
The Sony WH-CH720N has 30mm dynamic drivers, Dual Noise Sensor technology, an Integrated Processor V1, and other features that advance noise cancellation.
The newly created wind noise reduction structure around the microphone in the new headphones reduces background noise. Through the Sony Headphones Connect app, you can also choose between 20 different levels of ambient sound.
There is a multipoint Bluetooth connection, DSEE, and the Precise Voice Pickup Technology uses four beamforming microphones and an AI-based noise reduction algorithm to isolate your voice precisely.
The 192 g headphones are advertised as being the lightest overhead wireless ANC headphones made by Sony.
With ANC turned on, you can get a playback of up to 35 hours, and without it, up to 50 hours. Additionally, a 3-minute quick charge can extend your battery life by up to 60 minutes.

The key takeaway is the lightweight design of the Sony WH-CH720N, which Sony says in a media release is its lightest ever over-ear headphone design with active noise cancellation. The headphones are rated to weigh 192 grams, while the CH710N predecessor weighed 223 grams.
Despite this, the features have remained the same. The Sony WH-CH720N features dual noise sensors and the V1 noise processor for 20 levels of customisable active noise cancellation that can be adjusted through Sony’s Headphones Connect mobile app.
This also enables an active ambient sound mode, and automatic adjustment of the noise cancellation levels based on a user’s surroundings.
Users will also get Sony’s signature DSEE audio upscaling engine, while the closed 30mm dynamic drivers remain the same as its predecessors.
Instead of Bluetooth 5.0, the new CH720N headphones are powered by Bluetooth 5.2 — however, the codecs and audio formats supported by the headphones remain the same. It also gets beamforming microphones for clearer audio calls.
While the audio frequency support remains the same, the Sony WH-CH720N appears to offer higher impedance of 320 ohm, although it isn’t clear why this would be the case.
