You don’t have to remove headphones to hear announcements etc while enjoying music with Sony MDR-1000X wireless headphones
Today, Sony announced the MDR-1000X premium wireless headphones with industry leading noise cancellation performance, offering the most responsive cancellation of ambient sound frequency range on the market. The MDR-1000X supports Hi-Res Audio playback with a wired connection so listeners can hear every detail, just as the artist intended. Sony’s S-Master HX audio amplifier also supports Hi-Res to maintain the purity of the original signals for highly faithful sound reproduction. Sony’s exclusive LDAC technology delivers audio at three times higher quality than conventional Bluetooth streaming.
When listening to compressed digital music (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA) the MDR-1000X are Sony’s first headphones with the DSEE HX built-in to upscale compressed music from any source to near Hi-Res Audio sound quality, even in wireless mode. A personal NC optimizer tailors the noise cancelling performance for the individual ears. The headphones analyze the shape of their head and their wearing style (such as hair style and wearing glasses or not), providing a customized noise-cancelling experience. This personalized listening experience is realized by the newly developed SENSE ENGINE.
Quick Attention mode assures listeners will not miss a word that is spoken while enjoying music or a movie. Instantly activated by placing a hand on the side of the headphone shell, it allows natural sound to come through. Ambient Sound Mode changes the sound settings so that consumers hear the ambient sounds around them, enabling them to be aware of announcementMDR-1000Xs or discussions with colleagues, while still enjoying their music. These unique listening experiences are also realized by SENSE ENGINE.
An up to 20-hour battery life in wireless mode with noise cancelling on, enables travelers to use these headphones during flights to far-flung destinations on a single charge. MDR-1000X Wireless Headphones are priced at $399.99 MSRP. Presales start today. They will be available in October, 2016.
