Sony, MDR-1000X Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphone
Awarded 5 Star and "Best noise-cancelling headphones" by What Hi-Fi? The MDR-1000X provides industry leading bluetooth noise cancelling headphones. New high senstivity drivers efficiently filter out unwanted noise while Dual Noise Sensor technology uses internal and external microphones to detect and offset ambient sound. Close-fitting urethane foam earpads surround your ear and lock out distractions.
These headphones utilizes a powerful 1.57" driver with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm for handling heavy beats, and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz. Hear music that stays true to the original recording with High-Resolution Audio. Optimized for High-Resolution Audio, S-Master HXTM reduces distortion and allows you to enjoy all the subtleties in your music. The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC and WMA) and takes them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in compression, DSEE HX produces your digital music files in rich, natural sound.
Soft synthetic leather on the housing and earpads give a luxurious look and feel. Designed to fit securely over your ears for hours of comfortable listening. Swivel fold earcups make it easy to store headphones in a suitcase, bag or the supplied carrying case while traveling. Simply touch the gesture panel on the earpads to control your music or activate the smartphone's voice assistant features.
The MDR-1000X allows users to take control of sound in 4 modes with SENSE ENGINE.
1) Personal NC Optimizer - Providing the best noise cancelling filter for each user by calculating the size and shape of ears, head and wearing style.
2) Quick Attention - Talk without taking headphones off just by placing one hand over the housing to instantly decrease music volume.
3) Ambient Sound Mode (Voice Mode) - Listen to music without distraction while still catching important announcements.
4) Ambeint Sound Mode (Normal Mode) - Hear essential everyday sounds such as traffic while listening to music in the background.
The MDR-1000X offers high quality wireless listening with LDAC. LDAC transmits approximately three times more data than conventional Bluetooth® Audio, which allows you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional sound quality close to High-Resolution Audio.

- Simply Outstanding Review by Peter
Price Value Quality
The MDR-1000X is a real winner in terms of design, sound quality as well as the functions it provide. The most important aspects for such headphone to me is 2 prong, 1stly the comfort and headphone is very comfortable to the ears and no tight clamping sensation at all. As with the nearest challenger in BOSE, it's foldable and easily portable on your travels as well.
2ndly, sound quality is amazing with very good bass but yet not overwhelming... those punchy feeling is what i'm referring to.
Lastly the functions. Well bluetooth pairing can be tricky but i find little issue in this. the hand-touched volume controls work perfectly.
If there is any 'complaints' it's really just how i feel some settings like the ambient sound could be activated via a switch rather than a button. (Posted on 3/16/2017)
