Sony's WH-1000XM3 cans are likely going to be replaced by a WH-1000XM4 model soon, if a teardown of the Sony Headphones Connect app, which purportedly revealed the noise-canceling headphones, is to be believed.

<![CDATA[Sony WF-XB700 review: Wireless freedom on a budget]]>

The Sony WF-1000XM3 is one of the finest pairs of true wireless in-ears on the market, thanks to market-leading noise-cancelling tech, great sound, and solid battery life. It's also an expensive product, which is where the much more affordable WF-XB700 comes into play.

We've known that Sony's likely to be working on a follow-up to its masterful WH-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones for a little while - in fact, right at the end of last year an FCC filing confirmed that Sony's working on some form of WH-1000XM4.

At some point in the past five years, Bose took control of noise-cancelling in headphones, becoming the de facto brand you'd see when walking down the aisle of an aircraft. Sony, it seems, doesn't like this, and for the third year in a row has pushed out a version of the 1000X, looking to knock the crown from the incumbent's head.

It was two years ago we were first introduced to the Sony MDR range, headed-up by the self-proclaimed "prestige" MDR-1R headphones. We had to hand it to Sony, though, despite sounding almost pompous they were very impressive over-ears, delivering quality in both the build and sound departments.

We've had the Sony MDR-1RNC noise cancelling over-ear headphones in the Pocket-lint offices for weeks now and have been using them non-stop - while at work, when commuting, out on the streets and at home. We already had a lot of love to give to the baby of the range, the similar-named MDR-1R model, but can the top-spec noise cancelling model - with its eye-watering £449 recommended retail price - closer to £330 in the real world - deliver the goods a step above?

When a company sticks its neck out to brand its headphones as "prestigious" it's got to be pretty confident that they deliver in both the style and sound departments. The Sony MDR-1R over-ear headphones sure do look suave in their brown and silver makeup, but they also carry a whopping £300 price tag on the Sony Store. Are the MDR-1R over-ears able to deliver on their prestigious promise?

The kind of headphones that come boxed up with iPods and other devices are, in general, awful. They don’t do their respective devices justice, leak audio, but more importantly they don’t do your listening experience - or your eardrums - justice either.

Thanks largely to a certain brand of celebrity-endorsed headphones, wearing proper headphones in the street is now socially acceptable. The Sony MDR-V55 offer themselves up as "DJ style" so, as Sony puts it, you can take your tracks to the street.
