Sony WI-1000X review

 

Decent sound and noise-cancelling makes these neckbuds a smart choice.

Punchy bass ; Insightful midrange ; Well balanced ; Range of noise-cancelling modes

Neckband could be more flexible

The best of both worlds - great sound and noise-cancelling capabilities - make these a smart choice

Sony WI-1000X review: Jaw-droppingly accomplished neckband earphones

 

Sony's earphone game is getting stronger by the year, with its latest wireless earphones being testimony to that improvement. The WI-1000X are,

Brilliant customisable sound ; Well-made and premium looks ; Solid wireless connectivity ; Versatile noise-cancelling and ambient sound control

Could be more comfortable to wear in-ear ; Battery improvements would be welcome ; Micro-USB rather than USB-C recharging

Sony's earphone game is getting stronger by the year, with its latest wireless earphones being testimony to that improvement. The WI-1000X are, without doubt, among the best in-ears we've tested in a while.

A noble noise-cancelling neckband with sublime sound

Great sound balance ; Excellent, versatile noise cancelling ; Long battery life

Sony WI-1000X review

 

Audiophile wireless earbuds for commuters

Audiophile wireless sound ; Good noise cancellation ; Unique features

Average battery life ; Adaptive Sound Control is slow ; No multi-point connection

If you can’t stand over-ear headphones, the Sony WI-1000X are a great in-ear alternative. The inclusion of aptX HD support makes the Sonys one of the best wireless headphones we’ve heard. While battery life may just be average, the WI-1000X are a great...

Sony WI-1000X review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony WI-1000X are a pair of wireless in-ear headphones, but unlike most they also include active noise-cancelling - technology that is usually reserved for large, over-ear pairs. Can Sony pack all the benefits into this smaller, portable package?...

Sony WI-1000X

 

The wireless Sony WI-1000X earphones deliver solid noise cancellation and some of the best audio quality we've heard in this category, with a sound signature that can be tuned to your liking.

High-quality audio performance with sculpted, but balanced sound signature. EQ allows for sculpting audio to your taste. Excellent noise cancellation. Comfortable fit. Easy-to-operate design. Generous array of accessories.

Sound signature not for purists seeking accurate, flat response.

Aside from offerings from Bose, the Sony WI-1000X earphones deliver some of the best in-ear noise cancellation we've heard. Their audio performance is also a bit more compelling than the typical Bose sound signature, and Sony has an advantage in that...

Sony's new wireless neckband-style headphone is a rare breed

 

The pricey around-the-neck WI-1000X wireless noise-cancelling headphone is set to take on Bose's QuietComfort 30.

Sony WI-1000X HEADPHONES

 

The Sony WI-1000X are versatile around-the-neck headphones for everyday casual use. They offer a good ANC feature that blocks a lot of noise which makes them a good choice for daily commuting. They also have a more premium feeling than other similar...

Good noise isolation and low leakage. ; Good controls. ; Can also be used wired.

Slightly sharp on already bright tracks. ; In-ear, neckband design won't be for everyone.
