From LG’s rollable TV to the design of Uber’s future air taxi service, the CES 2019 has witnessed a variety of new inventions and interesting devices. At the ongoing tech show, several laptops and televisions were introduced. And now, at CES 2019, Sony has shown an update to its line of noise-canceling headphones. Even though the update is tiny, we are confident that many users will find it to be quite helpful.
The Amazon Alexa upgrade for the Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones, which the company unveiled at IFA 2018, is expected to arrive in the coming weeks. The WH-1000XM3 on-ear wireless headphones from Sony are the company’s replacement for the WH-1000XM2 model. They include 40mm drivers, 30 hours of battery life, and user-customizable noise cancelling modes. High-resolution audio codecs like aptX HD and LDAC are supported by the Sony WH-1000XM3 (review). The wireless, neck-worn Sony WI-1000X headphones, which were the product’s predecessor, are said to have a 10-hour battery life. WI-1000X are equally as effective at noise suppression as Sony WH-1000XM3.
While Alexa compatibility will be added as a firmware update in Q1 2019, all three headphones already support Google Assistant. Users will be able to access the update through Sony’s Headphones Connect App on both Android and iOS devices. Customers will only be allowed to utilise one digital assistant at a time, despite the fact that the headphones will enable both of them.
In India, the Sony WH-1000MX3 is available for Rs 29,990, and the WH-1000XM2 is priced at Rs 20,000. Although the Sony WI-1000X headphones cost Rs 21,990, several online retailers provide them at a lower price.
At the tech event, the business refreshed its line of Extra Bass speakers in addition to making these announcements. The Sony SRS-XB12, SRS-XB22, and SRS-XB33 speakers were introduced as the XB10, XB20, and XB30 speakers’ respective successors. At CES 2019, Sony also unveiled some 8K and 4K televisions with Apple AirPlay connectivity.
