I've read reports that it does, but I'll escalate this to confirm it

 No it doesn't because the adapter packaged with it has 4 piles while nc headphones have 5 poles neither is it mentioned in spec sheet

Re: Does XZ2 have noise cancelling?

 So the phone has the capability for nc? It's just a case of getting nc capable usb-c to Jack dongle? I have a pair of mdr-nc750 earphones that I'd like to use......alternatively will a pair of mdr-nc750 work?

 

Ulliwooly, any joy with escalating for confirmation?

In the past, Sony has also offered on-smartphone audio noise cancellation, high-quality audio formats, and the smartphone industry's first 4K display all ahead of the market. According to GSMarena, it'll have an active noise cancellation with dedicated mic.

No it doesn't.

Sony SBH-90c

 

https://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/products/accessories/2-way-style-usb-audio-bluetooth-headset-sb...

 

It does support, as they market "2-way style" direct connect to the Type-C connection or Bluetooth.

 

I think there is a tiny technicality of it's Bluetooth NC, vs, wired and tech inside phone. The cord allows charging headset at the same time. 

 

Now my question is: When plugged in, do you get the DNC digital noise cancelling audio setting in Xperia Music, or do you get 1000X line of a seprate app to download?

My bad.

 

I thought they were the successor to the Sony WI-1000X. They are not, they just visually look similar. My mistake.
