Sony MDR-1000X Noise Cancelling Headphones Launched at Rs. 30,990
Highlights
  • The Sony MDR-1000X is priced at Rs. 30,990
  • The headphones feature active noise cancellation technology
  • The MDR-1000X is also Bluetooth enabled

Sony has launched the MDR-1000X active noise-cancelling headphones in India at a price of Rs. 30,990. The headphones are also Bluetooth-enabled, letting you wirelessly connect to smartphones and other devices for a more convenient listening experience. At this price, the MDR-1000X takes on the Bose QC35, which is currently our favourite noise-cancellation headset and also features Bluetooth connectivity.

Apart from Bluetooth and active noise cancellation, the headphones also have a few other advanced features built in to enhance the experience. The Personal NC Optimiser function is said to analyse the shape of your head and the way you wear the headphones to ensure ideal noise-cancellation. The in-built DSEE HX upscaling claims to improve sound quality on compressed audio files and bring it to high-resolution audio levels. The Quick Attention Mode lets you place a hand on the touch-sensitive panel on the ear casing to reduce the volume when you need to have conversations. There's also an Ambient Sound mode which adjusts the sound levels to make it possible to listen to what's going on around you while listening to music.

The MDR-1000X headphones have a claimed 20-hour battery life when using Bluetooth and active noise-cancellation, and come with an included cable for wired connectivity, an airline adapter and a leather carry case. It's powered by 40mm drivers, and has a frequency response range of 4-40,000Hz, thereby meeting requirements of the high-resolution audio standard. Noise-cancellation can be switched on or off, and the headset also features NFC for quick connectivity to source devices.

Sony earlier this year launched the MDR-100ABN wireless noise-cancellation headphones at Rs. 21,990, which we rated highly in our review. With the launch of the more expensive MDR-1000X, Sony steps up its product line to include a more premium option with better features, directly taking on the QuietComfort line from Bose.
