They offer a good ANC feature that blocks a lot of noise which makes them a good choice for daily commuting. They also have a more premium feeling than other similar designed headphones we’ve reviewed so far and come with a lot of tip options, so you can find the best fit. Unfortunately, they have too much latency to watch video content and lack a bit of bass, but overall, they are good headphones with tons of customization options in the compatible app.

The perfect headphones for a big city

from G Style Magazine

A bit pricey but nowadays we should come to expect that with good quality comes a certain pricepoint. These headphones walk the line and don’t go over it. You’ll get a quality sound, great for all of your music that gives you an escapism from the outside world in small, discrete form factor.

Audiophile quality, effective noise cancelling

In a few words – stunning sound and noise reduction. It is the portable version of sibling WH-1000XM2 headphones.

Jaw-droppingly accomplished neckband earphones

from Pocket-lint

Sony's earphone game is getting stronger by the year, with its latest wireless earphones being testimony to that improvement. The WI-1000X are, without doubt, among the best in-ears we've tested in a while.

A noble noise-cancelling neckband with sublime sound

from Stuff

The WI-1000X is a fantastic mid-way point, untethering you from your smartphone but finding room in the neckband for a significantly bigger battery. You haven’t got to worry about losing an earbud with these, either.

Audiophile wireless earbuds for commuters

from TechRadar

If you can’t stand over-ear headphones, the Sony WI-1000X are a great in-ear alternative. The inclusion of aptX HD support makes the Sonys one of the best wireless headphones we’ve heard.
