Sony TWS WF-1000XM3 – Specifications
The 1000XM3 are Sony’s noise-cancelling earbuds. They were announced to compete with AirPods Pro, which is why the similar pricing in the United States. They were also the honoree at the CES 2020 innovation awards.
Promised to offer up to 24 hours of battery life, they also come with fast charging technology, which allows 90 minutes of playback in just 10 minutes of charging. The primary highlight of these earbuds is the noise-cancelling tech, which is powered by a custom QN1e processor.
As far as the sound quality is a concern, they pack a tiny-yet-powerful 0.24” driver unit for the rich, clear, and expansive sound. Further, these TWS from Sony have upscaling tech, which allows digital music to DSEE HX conversion, thus bringing closer to high-res audio quality.
