03 Jul Sony MDR-1000X: Sony Takes On The Big Boys in Noise-Cancelling
When it comes to noise-cancelling headphones, Bose and Sennheiser are the undisputed kings of the hill. But let’s not forget Sony. The Sony MDR-1oooX is a top-notch pair of noise-cancelling headphones, with indisputably great, Hi-Res audio. Sony’s noise-cancelling system is state-of-the-art, adapting to your environment by not only taking stock of the ambient sounds around you, but also takes into account things such as the size of your head, your glasses and shape of your ears.
The MDR-1000x is controlled entirely by touch sensor controls. The Quick Attention function lets you instantly turn down the music simply by cupping your hand over the right earphone, letting you hear sounds and conversations around you, while the Voice Mode lets you automatically hear important announcements around you. You can also take calls wirelessly with the built-in microphone. The battery lasts up to 20 hours, and you have the option of listening via either Bluetooth or Hi-Res wired. The 40mm, high sensitivity driver puts out up to 40khz.
