Sony WI-1000X review: Jaw-droppingly accomplished neckband earphones

 

Sony's earphone game is getting stronger by the year, with its latest wireless earphones being testimony to that improvement. The WI-1000X are,

Brilliant customisable sound ; Well-made and premium looks ; Solid wireless connectivity ; Versatile noise-cancelling and ambient sound control

Could be more comfortable to wear in-ear ; Battery improvements would be welcome ; Micro-USB rather than USB-C recharging

Sony's earphone game is getting stronger by the year, with its latest wireless earphones being testimony to that improvement. The WI-1000X are, without doubt, among the best in-ears we've tested in a while.

Sony WI-1000X review

 

Audiophile wireless earbuds for commuters

Audiophile wireless sound ; Good noise cancellation ; Unique features

Average battery life ; Adaptive Sound Control is slow ; No multi-point connection

If you can’t stand over-ear headphones, the Sony WI-1000X are a great in-ear alternative. The inclusion of aptX HD support makes the Sonys one of the best wireless headphones we’ve heard. While battery life may just be average, the WI-1000X are a great...

Sony WI-1000X review

 

Decent sound and noise-cancelling makes these neckbuds a smart choice.

Punchy bass ; Insightful midrange ; Well balanced ; Range of noise-cancelling modes

Neckband could be more flexible

The best of both worlds - great sound and noise-cancelling capabilities - make these a smart choice

​Sony WI-1000X neckband headphones review

 

A noble noise-cancelling neckband with sublime sound

Great sound balance ; Excellent, versatile noise cancelling ; Long battery life

Neckband is a bit too rigid

Fantastic sound and a comfy fit, without constantly worrying you’re going to lose them. A great traveller’s choice.

Truly excellent, keep this audiophile happy

 

Coming from Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 Pros I've been sceptically resisting switching to BT earphones, but having been wrestling with yet another set of stiffening cables I decided to give them a go. What a minefield starting again! I researched...

Fantastic!

 

I bought these after returning the WF-1000X for poor connectivity and video lag. These are great. I've had no loss of connection, even in high traffic areas. The video syncs perfectly. And the sound quality is excellent. The noise cancellation works...

Great sounding & comfortable in ear

 

Has these headphones only for a week. Been out riding several times, I'm no expert but sounds good to me. Noise cancelling & ambient control good once you get the correct ear fitting with the supplied buds. 6 sets supplied including standard on...
