Sony is doing quite well with its Active Noise Cancelling Headset (WH-1000XM3) and Noise Reduction Bean (WF-1000XM3). These devices are currently on sale and their performance is not bad. This week, Sony’s new noise-canceling headset appeared on the database of the Brazilian communications management department. From the pictures alone, it is really similar to the previous generation. Fortunately, the listing also shows the new device user guide. Compared to the previous generation, the main features of Sony’s new headset include:
- Bluetooth 5.0 (the previous generation is v4.2);
- Rated power 2W (the previous generation is 3W);
- If maximum noise reduction is turned on, and the battery life is 40 hours (the previous generation was 36 hours);
- Supports Alexa’s voice assistant and another digital assistant (the previous generation requires activation key).
Undoubtedly, Bluetooth 5.0 and the reduction of power consumption are extremely important improvements for Sony’s new noise-canceling headset. This means that this new device will not only improve signal transmission but also battery life. As of now, there is no other information regarding this headset.
