Let’s not beat around the bush: the Sony MDR-1000X are an exceptional pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones. So successful in fact that Sony is exporting some of that noise-cancelling mastery and expanding the family to a range of 1000X devices.
There’s a slight change in naming convention that you’ll notice, with Sony dropping the MDR for WI instead on this model. The “I” here is for “in ear”. (Sony says that it has run out of combinations of numbers and letters in the MDR series, hence the change.)
Anyway, the WI-1000X lean heavily on that 1000X reputation, but offer a complete change in form factor to a wireless neckband style with in-ear buds. We got the chance to put these Bluetooth headphones through their paces at the launch at IFA 2017, and the results are pretty impressive.
