on

Further strengthening its position in audio segment, Sony India added WH-1000XM3 around ear headphones to its highly-accredited Sony 1000X family. This headband-style around ear model offers all the much-loved features from the previous WH-1000XM2, along with adding other multiple key improvements, including upgraded Noise Cancelling performance to enhance listening and user experience.

Industry leading Noise Cancellation Technology

WH-1000XM3 benefits from a newly developed HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 which has approximately four times greater performance than the previous processor. This newly-developed component can negate transport noise like its predecessor, and also further cancels out daily background sounds such as street noise and human voices. It further features Dual Noise Sensor technology that captures ambient noise with dual microphones and then passes the sound data to the processor to cancel the noise.

High Resolution sound quality

These premium headphones are designed keeping in mind the frequent travelers. The WH-1000XM3 delivers exquisite High-Resolution Audio with a 40mm driver unit with a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm that handles heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz. This enables one to enjoy listening music exactly how the artist intended.

The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 works not only for Noise Cancelling, but also realizes stunning high sound quality with 32-bit Audio Signal Processing and the combination of DAC with Amplifier functionality. This offers exceptionally high sound quality, best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio, and low distortion for portable devices.

Customize sound with Quick Attention Mode

Like its predecessor model, WH-1000XM3 is also equipped with Quick Attention Mode which enables one to know what’s going on around them without taking the headphones off. User can place their right hand over the right housing to decrease music volume instantly, which allows one to quickly respond to those around them. There are other ways to control the sound too by just swiping the touchpad on the right housing to turn the volume up/down or to change track.

Another improvement is the Customizable Automatic Power Off function on the companion Headphones Connect app, which allows the headphones to stay on in Noise Cancellation mode without being connected to a device. The function is perfect if one wants noise reduction without listening to music. It further enables one to rest peacefully while on a long-haul flight. 

Easy, practical and comfortable design

The WH-1000XM3 has a new, slimmer silhouette and is lighter in weight than their predecessor and they only weigh 255g. The headphones are extremely comfortable to wear as they come with deeper ear cup and a thicker headband cushion. They also come with a stylish fabric case which will satisfy the fashion-conscious and new, eye-catching color options of black or platinum silver with gold highlights. 

Smart listening by SENSE ENGINE

The headphones are equipped with smart listening features such as Adaptive Sound Control which automatically detects user’s physical situation and activity such as traveling, walking, and waiting, then adjusts ambient sound settings. With 3 auto mode-changes for the 1000XM3’s, one can hear all ambient sounds together with music when walking, hear announcements while waiting at the airport lounge and can be immersed in music with Noise Cancellation when travelling by train or bus.

Touch control to control tracks and calls

This smart listening experience is enabled by the SENSE ENGINE which gives users the power to tune in and out of users music at a touch. The Headphones Connect App enables to use Smart Listening by Adaptive Sound Control, control ambient sound settings and adjust the sound levels with the equalizer. 

30 hours of battery life with Quick charge of 10 minutes for 5 hours play back

With a huge 30 hours of battery life, the headphones sustain enough power for long trips. Besides offering 30 hours of battery life with Noise Cancelling and BLUETOOTH® connection, the 1000XM3 headphones have an upgraded Quick Charging function that provides five hours of wireless playback with a mere ten minutes of charging via a contemporary USB type-C™ port. Voice calls are also made clearer, with the introduction of multiple microphones, ideal for hands-free conversations. 

Supplied Accessories

WH-1000XM3 will be available for pre-booking on Amazon and Croma from 11th to 18th October, 2018 and in all Sony Centers and major electronic stores in India from 18th October, 2018 onwards.

boAt ‘Immortal 1000D’ Gaming Headphone Launched with Dolby Atmos

NDM Network

Published

on

boAt is all set to launch their line of gaming headphones, “Immortal”. Their flagship model, called boAt Immortal 1000D, includes Dolby Atmos for a premium gaming and entertainment experience. The headphones also come with 50mm drivers for high fidelity audio, regardless of the content played.


In a recent report released by KPMG, the online gaming segment in India is projected to grow at a CAGR of 21 per cent over FY21-FY25 to reach a size of INR 29,000 crore. Of the total size, online casual gaming accounts for 44 per cent of the total online gaming revenues. Overall growth in digital consumption sophistication has helped online gaming become a mainstream entertainment option.

Asia-Pacific has emerged as one the largest demand drivers for gaming accessories including PCs, consoles, audio and smartphones.

On Foraying into the gaming category, Sameer Mehta, Co-Founder, boAt said “We are very excited to launch our very first gaming headphone – the Immortal 1000D in India. The Indian gaming industry has grown to become one of the world’s largest e-gaming markets due to the fast and affordable connectivity of the internet and smartphones, and we want to provide specialized audio accessories and peripherals to professional as well as casual gamers and enthusiasts. The pandemic further elevated online gaming as an alternative entertainment option for many people, including a large part of our boAthead community. “

Commenting on this collaboration, Pankaj Kedia, Managing Director, Emerging Markets, Dolby Laboratories said, “We are delighted to partner with boAt for their first gaming headphone, Immortal 1000D. Consumers are now seeking higher quality and higher precision sound in gaming. Dolby Atmos will add depth and dimension to headphone audio, making it easier for gamers to detect easy-to-miss sounds and improve the accuracy of their gameplay. It will provide impressive clarity and detail to create a more realistic and thrilling experience. “

Excited about the launch of Immortal 1000D, Akshay Ahuja, Category Leader – Consumer Electronics, Amazon India said “boAt is very special to Amazon as we partnered to grow this business manifold and learnt things together in this really rewarding journey of working together. boAt is a leader today as its passion, quest for perfection and speed of execution have always been top-notch, helping us provide the latest trends in Consumer electronics to our customers. We strive to learn from the 4 years of our association and look forward to the next decade of partnership together”.

With Dolby Atmos available on the boAt Immortal 1000D, players will be able to unlock incredible immersive audio when playing their favourite PC games. Dolby Atmos works by placing the sounds of the game all around a listener with three-dimensional precision so that gamers can react faster and more accurately. It enables the ability to pinpoint the position and movement of teammates and enemies — even from overhead or behind. Gamers will be immersed in a more intense gaming experience that brings crystal clear, hair-raising realism to even the busiest of battlefields, so they can catch the subtle, potentially game-changing sounds they’ve been missing. These headphones also feature a 7.1 Channel Surround Audio created by the brands very own boAt Plugin Labz which processes high-fidelity sound and is optimized by experts in gaming audio immersion. Users can switch between 7.1 Channel Surround Audio or Dolby Atmos while gaming.

boAt Immortal 1000D comes with Dual mics for crystal clear and distortion-free communication between friends and foes. These also sport a remote to control audio, mic and LEDs for seamless voice and video conversations across YouTube, Discord, Twitch, and other streaming platforms. A long sturdy secure braided cable ensures durability and a USB connector ensures easy connectivity across all laptop and desktop gaming setups.   The headphones shut out external noise using special closed earcups that fully cover your ears, aided by plush cushions that form a perfect seal for greater sound isolation. A new breathable weave minimizes sweat and heat build-up generated by skin contact, while the ultra-soft foam’s improved density greatly reduces the headset’s clamping force for unparalleled comfort. The earcups have a built-in automatic breathing RGB LED light effect to complete one’s gaming setup.
