WI-1000XM2 includes Sony's most advanced noise cancellation engine
If you prefer using wireless neckband earphones instead of Bluetooth headphones such as Sony WH-1000XM3, you might be interested in Sony's new WI-1000X M2 wireless noise-canceling in-ear headphones. The neckband earphones weigh only two ounces or 58 grams, and they are available in two colors: black (pictured below), and silver.
They are expected to cost around €330 or $370, making them a premium product for most people. Their top feature is that they include the same noise-canceling processor found on the Sony WH-1000XM3, which received many accolades from lots of publications, including Digital Citizen.
Sony WI-1000XM2 uses a hybrid driver system that combines one main 9 mm driver with a balanced armature driver. This system guarantees deep bass, clear mids, and a natural high tone sound.
The neckband has a 3.5 mm port and a USB-C plug for wired connections and charging. The battery lasts 10 hours of playback, and it is fully charged in about 3.5 hours.
Fast charging is also available: Sony WI-1000XM2 can be used for 80 minutes after just 10 minutes of charging.
The earphones have an angled design, making them sit deeper and more secure in your ears. This way, you get a stable, comfortable fit, and they won't slip out unexpectedly while moving. The noise cancellation is improved too, due to this design choice.
Sony WI-1000XM2 is going to be available starting January 2020. We hope that we are going to get a review unit so that we can tell you more about its real-life performance, comfort, and sound quality.
