Sony WF-1000X true wireless earbuds review

 

Noise-cancellation meets true wireless

Impressive noise-cancelling ; Rich sound ; NFC pairing

A little bulky ; Minor connectivity issues ; No built-in digital assistant

With more than capable noise-cancellation, Sony has created a unique take on the true wireless form factor that's proving increasingly popular. It might be a little bulky, but the noise-cancellation goes some way to mitigating this problem, and battery...

Sony WF-1000X review

 

Sony's answer to Apple's AirPods -- the WF-1000X totally wireless earphones -- have been getting mixed reviews. Some people seem to love them, while others think they're not as polished as they should be despite the fact that they're equipped with...

Sony's WF-1000X totally wireless earphones are lightweight, comfortable to wear and sound better than the AirPods. They also feature active noise canceling, including a variety of tips to get a good seal, and their included charging case delivers two...

Battery life is only OK; noise canceling isn't as strong as some people might hope; with some ears, the included wings won't help lock the buds in place; some wireless hiccups; not water-resistant.

While it comes with a frustrating lack of polish, the Sony WF-1000X is one of the best-sounding totally wireless earphones currently available.

Sony WF-1000X

 

Sony WF-1000X review: easily the best wireless earbud headphones on the market, and the only ones with noise cancellation.

Excellent noise cancellation ; Adaptive noise cancelling totally works ; Comfortable, stable fit ; Auto-connect/disconnect ; Great sound

Charging case is a little chunky

Without doubt the best wireless earphones in the world.

Sony WF-1000X review

 

Another five stars for Sony, but this time for a pair of proper wireless in-ears...

Balanced, detailed sound ; Good with timing and dynamics ; Truly wireless ; Decent noise-cancelling ; Carry case doubles as a charger

Our sample had a slight connection issue with the right earpiece

At last, a pair of five-star, truly wireless in-ears we can really get behind

Sony WF-1000X review

  (Rating Hidden)

These Sony WF-1000X in-ear headphones are truly wireless: there isn't even a cable to connect them to each other. They consist of two separate earbuds, with in-built controls and a host of features, including noise cancelling and NFC. But can something...

Sony WF-1000X

 

The Sony WF-1000X earphones delivers some of the best audio performance we've heard from a true wireless pair, but so-so noise cancellation and some design quirks holds it back a bit.

Excellent audio performance with rich, full lows and solid clarity in the highs. Secure, comfortable in-ear fit.

Poor battery life. Noise cancellation is good, not great. Earpiece charging contacts in case don't always line up.

From a noise cancellation standpoint, Sony's WF-1000X earphones are merely decent, from an audio performance standpoint they're great, and from a design standpoint things are mixed. If the small performance and design quirks were eliminated, it would...

Sony truly wireless earbuds review: a flawed first try

 

The noise-cancelling WF-1000X earbuds feel every bit like a first-generation product, but they do sound good.

Decent and well-balanced sound ; Good noise isolation from outside distractions ; Comfortable, lightweight design

Noise cancellation doesn’t live up to Sony standards ; Shorter battery life than competition ; Periodic audio dropouts, especially in right earbud

My takeaway after a few weeks of using Sony’s first truly wireless earbuds is that the company didn’t quite fit all the pieces together to make this a great product. It turns out these earbuds are not my ideal option B for AirPods, nor does the...

Noise-cancellation is top notch ; Variety of equalizer settings to choose from ; Pleasant overall audio quality ; Ambient sound modes help to amplify surroundings

Lacks water-resistant design ; Latency issues with video watching ; Clunky looking and performing battery charging case ; On the pricey side at $180
