Sony WF-1000XM3

The AirPods are great, but one thing it could use is noise cancelation. While that's rumored for a future iteration, Sony has announced a new pair of wireless headphones called the WF-1000XM3 that are set to release next month. With just how well the WH-1000XM3 has been received, we can't help but be excited about the company's noise cancelation tech making its way into a much more compact form factor. The headphones feature their own processor called the QN1e, which is fully dedicated to noise canceling. 

This works in conjunction with a set of microphones that help to eliminate ambient sound. The processor also has a 24-bit audio signal processor and a DAC to give you the best sound possible. Battery life is rated at six hours and you'll find an additional three charges via the charging case for a total of 24 hours of battery life. Another handy feature is Quick Attention, which instantly turns down the volume and lets in ambient sound so you can hear your surroundings or have a conversation. 

The WF-1000XM3 will be available this August.
