As the WF-1000X in-ear headphones are completely wire-free, there is no cable noise resulting from, for instance, friction on the garment. In addition, the headphones offer advanced noise cancellation in connection with a smartphone app, adapting to the listener’s environment and activities. To ensure an interference-free Bluetooth connection with a mobile device, a two-part design was realised, with a laser-treated plastic piece serving as antenna.
Statement by the Jury
The extremely compact earphones promise superior musical enjoyment, as each of their details is geared to removing unwanted and irritating noise.
