When it comes to true wireless earphones, the most popular and widely used option is none other than Apple’s AirPods. This option is in its second generation and rumours of a third-generation AirPods are gradually seeping in. Although it is extremely popular the world over, it isn’t one of the best available. In fact, it is actually quite mediocre in comparison to some of the options available out there. A recent report claimed that amongst the best true wireless earbuds available, the Apple AirPods lie in the lowly 49th position, which is actually saying something for its audio quality. However, if you happen to be in the market and seeking out a great pair of true wireless earbuds that’s around the same price as the Apple AirPods, the Sony WF-1000X is the option you need.
The Sony WF-1000X is priced similarly as Apple AirPods in India as it comes with a price tag of Rs 14,990. On paper, these buds are truly exceptional as they boast a lot more features than the AirPods as they come with active noise cancellation as well as superior sound quality. The Digital Noise Cancellation feature lets you listen to your music without any distractions while its minimal design allows them to sit snuggly in your ears. It also features Smart Listening by Adaptive Sound Control that automatically adjusts ambient sound based on your activity. With the Ambient Sound feature on, you can listen to the essential sounds of your surrounding area.
True to the 1000X family, listeners can enjoy premium sound on the WF-1000XM3 headphones and enjoy music the way that the artist intended. The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e accomplishes its stunning sound output thanks to 24-bit audio signal processing and DAC with amplifier. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales compressed digital music files, including MP3 formats, to bring the user closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. Users can fully immerse themselves in high-quality audio, whether they are listening to music or enjoying the latest film on the go.
The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e has a low power consumption, boosting the battery life and listening time considerably. Consumers can listen for up to 24 hours with Noise Cancelling on, thanks to the WF-1000XM3 buds' sleek carrying case that doubles up as a charger while on the go. The buds even have a quick charge function – just 10 minutes of charging provides up to 90 minutes of battery life.
If this isn’t worth spending your cash on, then we honestly don’t know what is.
