It is equipped with two-way drivers consisting of a dynamic and a balanced armature driver. After use, the magnetic earplugs simply snap together. A big advantage of the neckband design is the generous space for a rechargeable battery: it should last up to 10 hours with noise cancelling switched on and Bluetooth connection active. Hands-free function and access to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa via the "Sony Headphones Connect App" are also integrated. Included are audio and USB charging cables, an airplane adapter and a cloth bag. The Sony WI-1000XM2 will be available in black or silver for 330 euros.
Two-way in-ears from Sony
Of course, Sony also offers true-wireless in-ears, but not everyone likes these completely unattached plugs. That's why they are launching the Sony WI-1000XM2 headphones with noise cancelling and flexibly adjustable silicone neckband next January.
