When it comes to noise-cancellation technology in headphones, we typically see it in over-ear and on-ear headphones, but in case such headphone designs are too bulky, then you might be interested to learn that Sony has announced their new WF-1000XM3 wireless noise-canceling earbuds.
These earbuds have been designed to be true wireless earbuds, similar to other devices such as Apple’s AirPods, but with the added advantage of offering up noise-cancellation technology as well. This is clearly not Sony’s first attempt at creating wireless earbuds, but they have definitely improved on its tech since then.
The WF-1000XM3 will come with a more efficient noise-cancellation processor in the form of the QN1e. There is also a new DAC and amplifier built into the earbuds that can deliver 24-bit audio, and this time, both earbuds will connect to your device. This is versus the previous model in which only one model connected to your device and then transmitted the audio from the left bud to the right.
In terms of battery life, Sony is claiming that the headphones will be able to last up to 6 hours on a single charge with noise-canceling on, and up to 8 hours with it off. There is also a charging/carrying case that will provide users with up to 3 additional charges. The Sony WF-1000XM3 is priced at $230 and are expected to be released this coming August.
