I have a problem. It’s an incredibly first-world problem, because it’s one where no amount of gear is ever “enough”. Literally the week after I ordered my brand new Audio Technica ATH-M40X, I was already scouring the internet for a brand new pair of wireless headphones with active noise cancellation (ANC).
And it’s not like I’m some big audiophile. My ears are decidedly plebian in the sense that I know what I like and I know what I don’t — there isn’t really a super deep spectrum. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop me from wanting to get the best ones there are.
After weeks of reading, listening and researching, I managed to narrow down the list to a few prime candidates. Sony’s original MDR-1000X headphones were not at the top of the list. Then, everything changed when I got a hold of the WH-1000XM2.

In a world where the device you keep with you all day is devoid of a 3.5mm headphone jack, wireless headphones suddenly become far more attractive than they have been in the past — at least, for me. I’m currently living the dongle life, and let me tell you, it’s awful. Those nasty things are fragile, tiny and infuriating to use on a daily basis.
Bluetooth, then, looks like the most viable alternative. But when you buy Bluetooth headphones, you don’t just want plain old Bluetooth headphones. At least, not when you have the option to pick one up with state-of-the-art noise cancellation technology.
That, young grasshopper, is where Sony‘s stunning lineup of 1000X headphones come in.

Sony’s launch at the Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona represented a shift in focus when it came to the development of mobile devices, bringing out several concepts that go beyond simply augmenting a smartphone. At SXSW (South by Southwest) they pulled back the covers of yet another futuristic device that falls in line with the experience Sony are promoting with their hands-free Xperia Ear device — the Concept N headphones.
