The company is the latest in a short list of manufacturers to include Amazon's voice assistant in its headphones. Good news for Alexa fans and a move by Sony to compete with Bose QuietComfort 35 II - award-winning noise-cancelling cans that offer both Amazon Alexa and Google Assitant integration.

This move by Sony follows a similar firmware push last year to several of the company's audio products adding Amazon Alexa compatibility to allow users easy voice control of their favourite tunes.
Sony says once the update is rolled out, users will be able to access Alexa by simply tapping a button to ask the assistant to play music, read a daily briefing or carry out other actions.
The addition of Amazon Alexa support means these headphones will be compatible with both Amazon and Google's voice assistants as Google Assistant support is already built-in.
Watch out for an update to Sony's Headphones Connect app at the end of the month that will bring the changes with it.
