The noise cancelling technology in the WI-1000XM2 is the most advanced ever in wireless neckband headphones, thanks to the power of our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. So you can lose yourself completely in your music.
More noise captured with Dual Noise Sensor Technology
Dual microphones – one feed-forward and one feed-back – on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sounds of your surroundings, whether it’s in-flight noise, city traffic or office chatter.
More noise cancelled with HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1
Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 gets to work. It not only cancels significantly more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power.
Atmospheric Pressure Optimising
Our noise cancelling is made to fly with Atmospheric Pressure Optimising. Enjoy in-flight entertainment with noise cancelling optimised for high altitude.
HD Hybrid Driver System
Sound is optimised across the frequencies with the HD Hybrid Driver System. The 9mm dynamic driver, custom-designed for the WI-1000XM2, provides deep bass and clear mids, while the matched Balanced Armature driver reproduces delicate, natural high tones.
The power your music deserves
The multi-talented HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 combines Digital Noise Cancelling, 32bit Audio Signal Processing, and a Digital-to-Analog converter with headphone amplifier. The result? Stunningly clear sound.
Truly authentic sound with High-Resolution Audio
Hear music that stays true to the original recording with High-Resolution Audio. For everyday listening, the Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files, bringing them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio.
A snug, stable fit with angled earphone design
With an angled shape, the earphones sit deeper and more securely in the ear for a stable, comfortable fit. Even when walking around, they won’t slip out unexpectedly.
Light and comfortable silicon neckband
