Sony takes on AirPods with their WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds

Wireless earbuds have exploded in popularity thanks to the rise of smartphones without headphone jacks and the Apple AirPods.

Now Sony is re-entering the world of wireless earbuds with their new WF-1000XM3 Earbuds.

“Sound quality takes center stage when we develop audio products, and the latest addition to our 1000X family of headphones is no exception,” said Mike Fasulo, president and chief operating officer of Sony Electronics North America. “Sony’s WF-1000XM3 headphones deliver the same noise-cancelling technology that has set the industry standard, enabling users to enjoy crisp, clear audio content without distraction.”

The WF-1000XM3 come with Sony’s HD Noise Cancelling QN1e Processor which has Dual Noise Sensor technology to catch and cancel out noise putting a bigger emphasis on your music.

The processor also has 24-bit audio signal processing, DAC with amplifier and a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX that will upscale compressed digital music files to High-Resolution Audio.

The WF-1000XM3 earbuds come with up to 6 hours of listening time with Noise Cancelling on and 8 hours with it off. The charging case holds up to 24 hours of additional listening time.

The case has NFC and USB-C charging with quick charging and can get you 90 minutes of listening time in just 10 minutes. There’s also Bluetooth 5.0 but no water resistance on the earbuds.

Some other features include a Quick Attention mode that lets you talk to those around you without needing to take out your earbuds (similar to Sony’s headphones).

The WF-1000XM3 will be available in August for $229 USD (Canadian pricing is TBC) and comes in two colours, black and silver.
