At €330 / $360, the recently unveiled Sony WI-1000XM2 earbuds do definitely sit in that category where you can easily pick up a pair of over the ear headphones of great quality, so that’s what we tested and compared.
Can the Sony WI-1000XM2 hold a candle to the popular Sony WH-1000XM3B earcans and what should you pick?
These earbuds with a neck band for comfort and battery life promise a whopping 100 hours of standby time, ten hours of playtime and, to top it all off, ten minutes of charging brings you 18 minutes of playtime with the Quick Charge feature.
Of course, by comparison, the Sony WH-1000XM3B do provide up to 30 hours of autonomy but that’s to be expected, considering their size (and the space set aside for the battery).
Those looking to put in a good workout or looking for running headphones will definitely find themselves gravitating towards the Sony WI-1000XM2, because their form factor and magnetic snaps guarantee they can sit where you want them to.
But what if you just want a great pair of headphones for day to day city life, the best audio quality for the budget and sound cancellation for hectic environments?
Essentially, that’s what our colleague Yue tested, so check out what she has to say about the latest Sony headphones.
