Overview

Our take on the Sony WF-1000X

The Sony WF-1000X are the only truly wireless headphones we carry to feature noise-cancellation. And Sony has developed some really smart and effective technology. Music plays wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth, and there is no cable connecting the left and right cable.

The Sony WF-1000X headphones

The Sony WF-1000X headphones fit securely in-ear and offer noise cancellation that adapts to your surrounding.

100% wire-free earbuds with adaptive noise cancellation

The Sony WF-1000X are the only truly wireless headphones we carry to feature noise-cancellation. And Sony has developed some really smart and effective technology. Music plays wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth, and there is no cable connecting the left and right cable.

Sony's adaptive noise-cancelling circuitry adjusts to the level of external sound around you — it even takes into account your movement.

Sony's free mobile app lets you fine-tune the sound — and noise

You get pretty "smart" noise cancellation right out of the box — these headphones will automatically take into account your surroundings. But when you download the free Headphones Connect app to your Apple® or Android™ device, things really get intuitive. The app uses your phone's sensors to detect if your walking, running, or sitting still — and adjust the noise cancellation accordingly.

And you gain some cool manual controls, too. Customize the sound characteristics and level of noise cancellation. You can even choose to prioritize sound quality or connection stability. (That's helpful when competing with other wireless signals in a high-traffic area like an office or mall.) 

A carrying case that recharges your earbuds wirelessly

When fully charged, the Sony WF-1000X earbuds offer up to three hours of music listening with noise cancellation. You just put them in the included carrying case to recharge them. The small charging case can bank up to 6 hours of power — or two full charges. 15 minutes inside the case gives you 75 minutes of wireless music and noise canceling.

This thing works

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First set of non Bose noise canceling headphones I have bought and they are great. I was concerned about one falling out but have not had any problems when working in the yard or marching through airport. Charge time is great and compact carrying case is easy to carry. My only suggestion, which is for all electronics, is wireless charging is the future please embrace it.

Pros: true noise cancelling

Cons: none

Features

Overview: The Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless Noise Cancelling In-ear Headphones feature two independent ear buds with absolutely no connecting wires or headband. You simply insert the earbuds, start your music, and leave your phone in your pocket or purse. With Digital Noise Cancellation, Adaptive Sound Control, and onboard controls, the headphones make it easy to get the sound you want from your digital music files. The headphones include a Charging Case, USB charging cable, and seven pairs of ear tips.

Truly Wireless Design: The WF-1000X includes left and right ear buds that sit securely in your ears. The music playback controls are located on the bottom of the right ear bud. You can answer an incoming call by pressing the button on either ear bud. When using the Sony Headphones Connect app, you can control many more functions and features on your device.

Supplied Ear Tips: The in-ear headphones come with seven pairs of ear tips. The proper fit of the ear tips into your ear canals maximizes the audio performance, and the noise cancellation system. Four sizes of long hybrid silicone rubber ear tips are provided (large, medium, small, and super-small). The slightly thicker triple-comfort ear tips provide a snug fit for effective attenuation of ambient noise. The triple-comfort tips come in three sizes (large, medium, and small). Two pairs of Fitting Supporters are also included to help keep the ear buds in place. The Fitting Supporter's fin conforms to the shape of the upper ridge of your ear for a secure fit.

Bluetooth/NFC: The WF-1000X has Bluetooth 4.1 for wireless listening from your smartphone, tablet, or Bluetooth music player. Compatible profiles include A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP, with SBC and AAC codecs. For NFC-enabled devices, you can easily pair to the headphones by simply touching the device to the N-mark on the bottom of the charging case when the ear buds are nearby. Bluetooth wireless range is approximately 30 feet.

Digital Noise Cancellation: The headphones are equipped with built-in microphones on the sides of the ear buds that capture outside noise and send and equal-but-opposite cancelling signal to the unit. You'll be able to hear more of your music and less of the outside distractions.

Adaptive Sound Control: Sony's Adaptive Sound Control can detect your activity and adjust the sound settings to you. When traveling, you can immerse yourself in your music with the highest level of noise cancellation. If you're walking, the noise cancellation adapts so you can stay aware of your surroundings while listening to music. While waiting, such as in an airport or train station, the noise cancellation is reduced so you can hear important announcements. These settings can be customized to your personal tastes in the Sony Headphones Connect app.

Sony Headphones Connect App: The Sony Headphones Connect app gives you control over the sound of your headphones right on your smartphone or tablet. In addition to Adaptive Sound Control (mentioned above), the app's Sound Position Control lets you choose the direction from which you hear your music (Front, Front Right, Front Left, Rear Right, or Rear Left). You can select from available presets for the Equalizer, and control your music (play/pause, skip forward/backward, fast forward/backward). The Sony Headphones Connect app is compatible with iOS devices (iOS 9.0 or later) and Android devices (Android 4.4 and up).

Rechargeable Battery: The Sony WF-1000X in-ear headphones are equipped with 3.7-volt Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries in each ear bud to power the Bluetooth and ANC functions. The ear bud batteries are charged in the included charging case, which includes it own rechargeable battery. The ear buds cannot be charged without the case. The ear buds require approximately 1.5 hours to fully charge, while the case takes about 3 hours. The batteries charge via USB using the included Micro USB cable. With a fully charged battery in the charging case, you can charge the ear buds about 2 times. (See battery life estimates below in Specifications.)
