Sony MDR-1000X Wireless Headphones
Sony’s newest noise-cancelling wireless headphones are utterly impressive! Retailing at $320, they happen to be Sony’s best product in their headphone line yet. Apart from the set being well padded and comfortable on your head, your ears get an even better feeling with nothing distracting you from the music. If you wish to pack it, simply fold it into a smaller size and slip it in your bag; it’s durability is assured.
Taking great care to boggle you down, Sony used the lightest but the toughest material in the ultra-light MDR-1000X wireless headphones. Their support of Hi-Res audio, especially in the wireless mode, will deliver the best sound quality while diffusing all other sounds. To achieve the Hi-Res sound, the wireless headphones feature built-in DSEE HX which upgrades compressed music coming from any source to near Hi-Res.
In wireless mode, the sound quality is a little bit lower even while featuring the company’s new LDC technology (which boasts of passing data through Bluetooth three times more). These wireless headsets have two microphones both on the interior and exterior. In addition, each of the earcups has a mic too; their purpose is to learn your head’s size and shape and deliver the best sound quality based on this information. Sony calls this the Sense Engine technology. If you happen to wear glasses, however, the headphones won’t provide the best seal.
Noise cancelling at its best
The outer microphones can be programmed to either cancel out all ambient noise or be selective in letting in certain sounds such as car horns when riding or announcements over the PA while waiting for your flight. By holding your hand up against the headphones right side, you get to hear everything through the microphones. In essence, the wireless headphone offers you smart noise cancellation features, the likes of which you’ve never experienced before.
