According to a redacted report from Plugged, the Sony WH-1000xM3 will include USB-C charging in lieu of micro-USB charging. What’s more, the inclusion of the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 is purportedly more powerful than what’s found in the WH-1000XM2, improving upon what was already one of the best active noise cancelling headphones to date.
Sony’s move to USB-C charging is good news for Android users and demonstrates that companies are taking steps to make the charging method universal.
Aside from the convenience factor, you can quick-charge through the USB-C port. Just 10 minutes of charging affords five hours of playback, and these headphones have a reported “30 hours [of playback] with noise cancelling…” As with most Bluetooth headphones, you can opt for wired listening with the included 3.5mm cable instead.
The same report posits that the QN1 processor allows the WH-1000XM3 to “process sounds at 32 bits and separate power between the DAC and amplifier.” Additionally, the same high-quality Bluetooth codecs are supported including aptX, AAC, and the company’s proprietary LDAC.
What else is the same? The initial retail price, which rings in at $349.
We’ll have more details for you when the headphones are officially announced.
