In addition to the flagship smartphones, Sony has also unveiled the new IFA 2017 – the WF-1000X cordless handset. This device can be an interesting alternative to Apple AirPods.
We all turned our eyes to Sony and introduced new smartphones – the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact. It turns out that the Japanese brought something else with them. These are the WF-1000X wireless headsets , which boast a pretty good potential. In the new Sony headphones you will find, among others, active noise reduction , which is able to effectively eliminate disturbing sounds from the environment. Interestingly, the technology itself recognizes exactly what is happening around and will, for example, allow you to hear information at the train station or airport. With the additional application from Sony, the handset will be able to detect our own movements and surroundings independently, thus giving the best audio performance. Unfortunately there is one minus and in my opinion this is the battery life. The Sony WF-1000X is capable of operating only three hours on a single charge – compared to AirPods from Apple, it's up to 2 hours shorter . Poor results, but noise reduction or environmental detectors can compensate some users. How much will you have to pay? Pretty much. The WF-1000X was priced at $ 199, or about $ 700. Do you think it's worth paying for it?
