Sony has announced the launch of its premium headphones, the MDR-1000X, extending its range of wireless and noise cancelling headphones that are already available.
The 1000X comes with a Personal NC Optimiser function that allows the user to tailor the noise cancelling experience. It also showcases the Quick Attention mode wherein the user can have a conversation with someone by merely placing the palm of his hand on the outside of the headphone ear cup, thereby eliminating the need to take off the headphones. All of these functions is enabled by Sony’s newly developed Sense Engine feature.
Other features include the DSEE HX, which is built-in to upscale compressed music from any source to near high-resolution audio sound quality, even in wireless mode. The Ambient Sound Mode setting changes the sound condition to allow the user to catch the ambient sound outside if needed.
The 1000X also features LDAC and S-Master HX technology, has a 20-hour battery life on a single charge and is available in two colours – black or grey beige.
