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


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...

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...

Test: Trådlösa minilurarna Sony WF-1000X


Sonys helt trådfria miniheadset har svårt att leva upp till de förväntningar vi har på dem efter Sonys tidigare lurar i serien.

Således ett headset som framför allt är bra för musik. Men där utmärker det sig desto mer, och är det just det som är ditt huvudsyfte kan vi ändå rekommendera Sony WF-1000X.

Sony WF-1000X review: bandeloze muziek - TechPulse


Sony gaat volledig draadloos met de WF-1000X bluetooth oortjes. Zorgt de bevrijding van de kabel ook voor een goede muziekervaring?

Gebruiksvriendelijk ; Compacte powerbank ; Active noise-cancelling

Verbinding niet stabiel ; In-ear niet voor iedereen

Consumer review by: Olufjam (

Excellent Bluetooth Headphone


I bought the Sony MDR 1000x about 2 weeks ago and so far i only had a short listening session, but, first impression is good,also i have one negative about charging the headphone, which Sony says you should only use usb via computer.

Consumer review by: BassHorizon (

Great piece of kit


I've had these headphones for about 3 weeks now and can't really fault them. Easy to set up and excellent sound quality via Bluetooth or the wired connection. Hi Res files sound crisp and clear via the Sony Hi Res walkman players that I use....
