Sony Announces Truly Wireless WF-1000XM3 Headphones with Industry-Leading Noise Cancellation
Sony today expands its renowned 1000X family with the addition of new generation truly wireless headphones – the WF-1000XM3. The Sony WF-1000XM3 headphones feature Dual Noise Sensor technology that works with the new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e to catch and cancel noise respectively, so that all attention is on music. Thanks to Dual Noise Sensor Technology, one feed-forward microphone and one feed-back microphone on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sound around you. Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e creates an inverted sound wave to offset bothersome background noise. It not only cancels more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power.
Characteristic of the 1000X family, you can enjoy premium, high-quality sound on the WF-1000XM3 buds and listen to your music the way that the artist intended. The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e also accomplishes stunning sound thanks to 24-bit audio signal processing and DAC with amplifier. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales compressed digital music files including MP3 formats, to bring you closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. You can listen for up to 24 hours with Noise Cancelling on, thanks to WF-1000XM3 earbuds’ sleek case that doubles up as a charger, perfect for a battery boost on the go. The buds even have a quick charge function – just 10 minutes of charging gives you up to 90 minutes of battery life.
The WF-1000XM3 buds with the new Wearing Detection feature automatically pauses your music when you remove one of the earbuds from your ear and resumes playing when you put the earbud back in your ear, so you never miss a beat. The ‘ergonomic tri-hold’ structure holds the earbuds firmly in place, with three supporting points for the ear. For ease, you can use Quick Attention mode to communicate without removing your earbuds. Simply place your finger over the touch panel of the left earbud to quickly lower the music volume and let the ambient sound in, so you can hear announcements or order a drink. Plus, with the fully customizable touch sensors on the earbuds you can easily play, pause, skip songs or activate your voice assistant with simple taps. Additionally
Optimized for the Google Assistant you can control your headphones by voice, making the WF-1000XM3s the perfect commuter companion. The headphones are also compatible with the Sony Headphones Connect app, for customization features for sound, noise cancellation, touch controls and more. . With 4 sizes of hybrid earbuds and three sizes of triple comfort earbuds, you can find your perfect fit. The Sony WF-1000XM3 model will be priced at approximately £220 / €250 (Ireland) and will be available from mid-August.
