The MDR1000X/C may sound like the title of an early George Lucas film, but it’s actually the name of Sony’s latest premium headphone offering, which offer the latest in noise-cancelling, wireless listening technology.
Available in a sleek beige grey or black, the MDR1000X/C headphones boast Hi-Resolution audio via a wired 40mm high sensitivity driver for the greatest in audio fidelity. It’s coupled with a Quick Attention function – an ambient sound mode that allows you to keep an ear out for important external sounds, like conversations and announcements. Wireless capability is implemented through Bluetooth connectivity, which also allows you to receive phone calls via the headphones at the touch of a button.
It’s all operated by an accessible touch control located on the right headphone cup, which can be used to start/stop, adjust volume and select tracks. Sony also promises up to 20 hours of battery life and the headphones fold back on themselves to minimise transport size and fit into a convenient carry case.
