Sony launched new level noise cancellation headphones. The WH-1000XM3 headphones are an upgrade of their WH-1000XM2 previous headphones. It has improved on the noise cancellation performance and made listening better. The headphones are going for Ksh. 49,995.

The new headphones have a four times greater performance than the previous processor. They cancel out any type of noise featuring Dual Noise Sensor technology that captures noise with dual microphones and passes the sound data to the processor to cancel the noise. The headphones can adjust to high altitude places with their sensors to know the air pressure around you and optimize the Noise Cancelling.

These headphones have High-Resolution Audio with a 40mm driver unit with a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm for heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz. The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 realizes high sound quality with 32-bit Audio Signal Processing and the combination of DAC with Amplifier functionality. This offers high sound quality, best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio, and low distortion for portable devices.

It has an activity recognition feature, Adaptive Sound Control; it is able to sense your physical situation. With 3 auto mode-changes for the 1000XM3’s, you can hear all ambient sounds together with music. This made possible by the SENSE ENGINE.

Another improvement is the Customisable Automatic Power Off function on the companion Headphones Connect app, which means the headphones can stay on and in Noise Cancellation mode without being connected to a device used if you want noise reduction without listening to music.

The 1000XM3 have a new, slimmer silhouette and are lighter in weight than their predecessor. They are very comfortable to wear because of the deeper ear cup and a thicker headband cushion.
