Despite making a breakthrough with its WH-1000X noise-canceling headphones, Sony hasn't taken a backseat and basked on its achievement.
Instead of resting on its laurels, Sony took its modern headphones and brought it to the next level with the 1000XM3 (Mark 3). According to Sony, the latest headphone is four times better than its predecessor, the WH-1000XM2, thanks to the key improvements that the company introduced. Potential buyers have to shell out $350 for the WH-1000XM3 when the latest product arrives in September in authorized outlets such as Best Buy and Amazon.
"We are proud to deliver the third generation of our industry-leading noise cancelling headphones," said Yang Cheng, head of video and sound at Sony Electronics. Yang said Sony's latest model will take noise canceling to the next level to enable users to listen to your favorite music without the hassle of outside noise.
Sony Boasts Of Latest Noise-Canceling Processor
Sony redesigned the headphones and equipped it with a latest new noise-canceling processor, the QN1, which performs better than the previous processor. The latest processor helps cancel out transport noise and keeps out daily background sounds, including street noise and human voices that can affect the pleasure of listening to music or watching a movie. Sony's Dual Noise Sensor technology picks up ambient noise with the help of dual microphones before sending it to the processor for automatic cancellation.
Aside from canceling outside noise, Sony's latest processor can deliver excellent sound quality through a 32-bit audio signal processing. It also produces high-resolution audio with the help of a 40 mm driver unit with a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm that can withstand heavy beats but can deliver a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz. This feature can allow users to listen to music as originally intended by the artist.
The latest headphones have the capacity to detect the physical situation of the user and enable it to adapt to changes. Through the Adaptive Sound Control feature of the 1000XM3, users can hear ambient sounds together with music when walking and announcements while waiting.
1000XM3 Practical And Comfortable
Aside from its features, Sony also enhanced the physical features of the 1000XM3 to make it more comfortable to use. Sony gave its new headphone a new and slimmer silhouette, deeper earcup, and thicker headband cushion for more comfort. The latest unit comes with stylish fabric case and colors that will satisfy fashion-conscious users. The headphones can be used for 30 hours even with noise canceling and Bluetooth connectivity in use. It also has a quick charging function, providing users with five hours of wireless playback in just 10 minutes of charging time.
