The IFA technical fair has ended for another year. We have seen lots of audio products launching the 2017 event, detecting a clear trend towards smart speakers, integration of truly wireless smartphone applications and headphones. We spent a week in the program to discover the best new gadgets to achieve that beautiful discoveries: here is our list of the best audio components that the exhibition has to offer. Sony is one of the most important players in the world of technology and has changed IFA this year with a series of new audio products to its credit. Among them, the new version of its headphones in the ear, the WH-1000MX2 its true wireless headphones, the WF-1000X and 1000X-WI headphones in the back of the neck.
All these devices feature Sony’s industry leading noise cancellation technology, which we have been able to build in Sony’s busy lobby. And it worked wonders, especially on the WF-1000X, which naturally damped the sound thanks to its perfect fit in the ear. It was a winning combination that took much of the weight of the background sounds, reducing them to a whisper. I’ll be damned if you find better noise cancellation on all consumer headsets this year, not to mention the real wireless headphones.
Best of all, the WF-1000X is compatible with the Sony Headphones Connect application, using a smart feature called Adaptive Sound Control. This can automatically activate the noise cancellation depending on the situation: for example, you are in the mall and you want to order a coffee without removing the headphones, you can adjust the noise cancellation to allow a close vote to pass without moistened They arrive on September 16 for $ 199 in black and gold, and I’m damned if you find a better noise reduction on all the consumer headphones this year – not to mention the real wireless headphones.
If you just want to relax and listen to your music with the best possible sound quality, the new Audio-Technica ADX5000 headphones could be exactly what you need. The list of materials and technologies included in these headphones contain the materials are made dreams, designed with the latest technology “Monte Core” with circuits of 58 mm with a Permendur magnetic circuit and a diaphragm coated with tungsten, as well as a magnesium frame . Perforated honeycomb casing – the list goes on.
All this technology has been incorporated into the ADX5000 to provide the best possible home listening experience. You do not want to take them out, and not only because they are expensive (more on that in a second): they are huge and open headphones. But this conception leads to a great natural sound; the ADX5000 will transport you to the heart of your music, sit down with your favorite artists with unmistakable audio reproduction.
To get your hands on a luxury, you’ll have to spend an arm and a leg: the ADX5000 will be on sale for $ 1999, when it will be launched in November. But for that, you’ll get what is defined as one of the best pairs of hand-made headphones. If I had to ask which was the best audio phone, there might be some names on the list. HTC usually receives a mention for the BoomSound speakers of its devices; Sony phones include an impressive amount of audio software enhancement tools. But to bring the music from the device to the headphones without compromise, you probably hear the name “LG V20”.
