Ever since the success of Apple AirPods, we have seen many brands working on and releasing their own truly wireless earphones. Sony is the newest to join the club as it has unveiled Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless earphones. If the name sounds familiar, it is because of the Sony WH-1000XM3 over-the-ear flagship headphones whose signature features have been added to the compact sized earphones.
The biggest highlight of the WF-1000XM3 is the active noise cancellation which is one of the best in the industry. It is the same technology that helped the flagship headphone counterpart receive critical acclaim around the globe. It boasts a dedicated noise cancellation processor QN1e. It also has dual microphone sensors to catch any kind of ambient sound and cut it out.
The earphones come with motion sensors which can detect whether you are sitting, standing up or walking. It helps in adjusting noise cancellation settings accordingly. Alternatively, you can also touch the earphones that will automatically lower the volume for the time being. Sony is calling it the Quick Attention mode when you want to listen to the outside for a few moments. It also has Google Assistant integration for accomplishing voice commands-powered tasks.
The Sony WF-1000XM3 earphones can last for up to 6 hours on a single charge with noise cancellation enabled. It comes with a charging case capable of providing up to three additional charging cycles. If you prefer using earphones with no noise cancellation, then a single full charge is claimed to go for up to 8 hours. These have been priced at $229 with shipping starting sometime in August 2019. The buyers will have an option to choose from Black and Silver color variants.
