Sony WH-1000XM3 may include USB-C charging and a new processor

This post was originally published on this site

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.

If the inclusion of USB-C charging in the Sony WH-1000XM3 is true, users will be able to use the included cable to charge other USB-C devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

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.
