EFTM Best Wireless Sound 2017: Sony WF-1000X

They are the first, they won't be the last but they are something to behold

So this was debated quite extensively among the EFTM team. Geoff was keen on seeing the new Voice assistant integrated Sonos One being awarded Best Wireless Sound.

I thought the great little JBL Kids were deserving of recognition, then I stopped and couldn’t get past the new Sony in-ear noise cancelling headphones.

The Sony WF-1000X were announced at IFA in Berlin but just a month later I got to try them out at home.

This is something remarkable, we’ve seen fully wire-free headphones before now – and we’ve seen in-ear noise cancelling earphones too.

What we haven’t had is the combination of both – these headphones are 100% wire-free, and have noise cancelling born from the standards in Sony’s over-ear headphones.

Having that in such a small package is fantastic – and it’s going to be replicated in brands and products from many companies in the next year. The Sony WF-1000X are our winner of Best Wireless Sound for 2017.
