”The best truly wireless, noise-cancelling earphones that you can buy.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

Digital Active noise cancellation - hear the music, not the transport

Featuring digital active noise cancellation, these earphones effectively block out the outside world. If you travel by 'plane, train or coach, noise cancellation headphones make all the difference. Quiet sections of music are now audible and the whole travel experience becomes more restful than ever before.

Truly wireless design
Unlike other wireless Bluetooth earphones, the Sony WF-1000X’s are truly wireless. This means that not only has the connection cable gone but also the umbilical link between left and right earphones. With no cables whatsoever, simply pop-in and go.

Wireless Bluetooth connection with NFC
With Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone, tablet or laptop, it's easy to make a wireless connection with these Sony Bluetooth phones. For a speedy connection with your smartphone, the WF-1000X also features NFC (Near Field Communication). Simply tap the NFC-equipped phone against the headphone’s case and it's paired and ready to go.

Boost the playback time with the charge case
Charged up, these tiny earphones give you up to three hours of playback. What’s really neat, though, is the supplied case. Pop them in and, in around two hours, you’ve another three hours of charge. In total, the charging case keeps these earphones playing for around nine hours.

Fine-tune the sound
Get the Sony Headphones Connect app (available on Apple iOS and Google) and you can fine-tune the sound to exactly how you like it. Adjust the bass and select from 'outdoor stage', 'club', 'hall' or 'arena' sound presets.

Made for music on the move
Ambient Sound (Normal and Voice settings) let you hear essential background noise and public address announcements – perfect if you’re at the station and need to hear the important stuff. Built to stay put, the ergonomic ear hook makes these earphones comfortable and secure. Fitting supporters are supplied in three sizes plus there are a wide range of silicone and triple-comfort earbuds also supplied – whatever your ear shape, there’s something that will fit it.

Take calls on your smartphone
With its built-in mic, these Sony headphones are the perfect partner for your smartphone. Compatible with both Android and iPhones, you can switch between listening to music and taking calls at the touch of the earphone.

Hear your music at its best, wherever you are, with the Sony WF-1000X earphones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good at times I have left it a while to leave a review as I wanted to be sure my experience was consistent. On the good side, when they work, the sound quality is very nice at the 'high quality'. The downside is that in anything but a few locations this setting does not work and the music drops out making them unusable unless you switch to the low quality setting - might as well use cheap earbuds. They are also not very comfortable to wear for more that 1/2 an hour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sounds great but battery life is short Had these a couple of weeks now, sound is good and the app lets you play around with various sound settings, I've noticed the right hand bud does glitch alot especially when running or walking with a bounce!, Fit is very comfortable and o haven't had them fall out yet. Hands free isn't great, I speak quite alot on the phone and I'm finding people can't here me very well, even in an quite environment also the conversation only comes through the left bud which is annoying as if your in a noisy place 2 buds would make it better! Hopefully Sony will correct these issues on the next model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy listening Found the 1000X easy to set up and use. Phone app useful. Send/receive phone calls works well. Sounds have a good range of frequencies from such small devices. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with ear phones Noice cancelling very poor compared to my 3 yr old Bose headphones, sound not bad but for price expected a performance similar to Bose. Have big problems with them staying in my ears, nearly lost left phone within ten minutes wearing for first time. Bluetooth connection to computer useless

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed. I also have the over ear version of these headphones and they are great. These are not. The sound is a similar quality though the noise cancelling is no where near as good but the biggest issues are battery life (from full to empty in 90 minutes) and the almost constant drop out - despite doing the firmware upgrade and selecting the stability program on the app. They literally drop and rejoin about every five minutes on my I phone X. Would not recommend to anyone which is a shame because I love my over ear version.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! I too purchased this product due to its What Hifi rating, but I really do not know what they were thinking about when they reviewed this product because I have a cheap pair of wired earphones that came free with a cheap phone, and these sound better! The product itself is well built with a good design with a quality feel but the sound quality is diabolical if you ask me

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit and clear sound Having used the earbuds now in most environments, gym, walking, running, train, etc. I am still very pleased with the fit - never come loose - the sound - loud and clear enough and with ok noise cancelling. Only thing that detracts (and I'm happy to live with) is that the individual buds seem to reconnect to each other after a while in play, this causes each bud to drop sound for a second in sequence. Not a big issue but not sure why it would do this. Overall, I would reccommend and would certainly buy again.
