Sony announce MDR-1000X Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
Sony has launched the MDR-1000X wireless headphones at IFA 2016, with ‘industry leading’ claims over its noise cancelling ability.
The 1000X is the first headphone from Sony that allows personalisation of the noise cancelling, a ‘Personal NC Optimizer’ function and includes, for the first time, ‘Quick Attention’ mode that lets you place the palm of your hand to the outside of the headphone ear cup to have a conversation with someone, without taking the headset off. Both features are down to what Sony terms the SENSE ENGINE.
SENSE ENGINE is a new technology from Sony that integrates ‘unique audio signal’ processing and analysing techniques. These are also the first headphones with the DSEE HX built in to upscale compressed music from any source to near High-Resolution Audio sound quality, even in wireless.
The noise cancelling processing features an upgraded filtering process, optimised dual noise sensor technology and newly developed ear pads. The ‘Personal NC Optimizer’ feature works by analysing the shape of your head and how you wear the headphones, to optimise the output.
Available in two colours, black or grey beige, the headphones come with their own durable leather case and are priced at £330.
