Sony’s true wireless earbuds might be pricier than AirPods, but that’s because they’re better
As someone who owns and loves Apple’s AirPods, I can happily admit that there are better options out there for cord-free Bluetooth earbuds. I can also confirm that the Sony WF1000X Premium Noise Cancelling True Wireless Headphones can be counted among them. Sony doesn’t get everything right these days — case in point: smartphones — but when it comes to audio products, Sony typically knocks it out of the park. Such is the case with the WF1000X earbuds, which blow Apple’s AirPods away. The biggest issue with AirPods is maintaining noise isolation, since they’re made of slippery plastic. These Sony buds have silicone tips instead, and the result is a perfect seal that’s quite comfortable even after hours of listening. The WF1000X earbuds are a bit pricier than AirPods, but they’re worth every penny (and they’re on sale right now at a discount!).
