Sony is launching a pair of high-end, noise-cancelling true wireless earbuds for $230

When it comes to over-ear headphones with active noise cancellation, Sony's WH-1000XM3 are probably the best in class, but the Japanese tech giant hasn't yet wowed us with an equally impressive pair of true wireless earbuds. That could be set to change, however, with the introduction of the (also obtusely named) WF-1000XM3, coming next month for $230/£220/€250.

[Deal Alert] Libratone Q Adapt USB-C in-ear down to $119 ($30 off), Wireless on-ear down to $199 ($50 off)

It's a sad state of affairs, but smartphones nowadays are skipping the 3.5mm headset plug for valid, and sometimes not-so-valid, reasons.

Libratone Track+ review: An almost perfect wireless in-ear active noise cancelling headset

Release after release, the Libratone name is becoming more familiar to me. While I raised my eyebrow the first time I heard Jeff mention it, I was quickly won over by its colorful and beautifully minimalist speakers. Over the past year, Libratone made more headway with us, Android fans, by releasing two products along with the Pixel 2: the Q Adapt USB-C in ear earphones (which Richard reviewed) and the Q Adapt Wireless on ear headphonesThen at CES 2018, Libratone followed up by announcing the TRACK+, a set of wireless in-ear noise cancelling earbuds. For $199, they had to stand up to the challenge of not only being good, but being near awesome to justify the price.

Bose QuietComfort 35 review: Superb quiet and comfort come with a high price and some compromise

I am an in-ear earphones kind of person. I find them small, portable, with enough noise-cancellation, even if passively, and comfortable to wear for hours and hours without any head pressure or weight. Over the years, I gravitated toward the Sennheiser C and CX series for their tiny earbud size and it became more and more difficult to adapt to larger sets. But I kept wanting and yearning for a nice pair of big cans, maybe because of their popular appeal and visually imposing presence around me, maybe because they felt like they could provide a richer and better sound, maybe because some of them offered active noise cancellation, and maybe it was just the fact that they looked cool.
