Sony annouces new WF-1000XM3 headphones
Sony has just expanded their impressive 1000X wireless audio range with the introduction of the new WF-1000XM3 wireless headphones. Taking inspiration from their fantastic noise-cancelling over ear headphones, the WH-1000XM3’s, the much smaller earbud-style headphones will pack many similar software features as its bigger sibling.
Sony is promising an impressive battery life of 6 hours for these new headphones and the charging case is said to charge them at least 3 times more overing up to a full 24 hours of playback.
Thankfully, the case is also capable of quick charging the buds so you should be able to add 90mins battery to them after only 10 minutes in the case.
Unsurprisingly, the new earbuds come with Sony’s industry leading HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e chip and Dual Noise Sensor Technology. A feedback microphone on the surface of the buds also allows them to catch ambient sound and cancel it out with the chip.
The sound itself is backed up 24-bit audio signal processing and DAC with amplifier. It can also upscale compressed music files with Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX.
These new headphones also include the extremely handy ‘Quick Attention’ mode found on the WH-1000XM3. What this means is that you’ll be able to place a finger on the left earbud and it will automatically reduce the volume and let in surrounding ambient sound so you can hear what’s going on around you or if someone is trying to talk to you.
The WF-1000XM3 model will be priced at approximately €250 and will be available from mid-August in Ireland.
