The WF-1000XM3 will soon turn two
Back in July 2019, when the AirPods Pro were not a thing yet and that very name was still a relatively well-kept secret, Sony grabbed the headlines by unveiling the impossibly branded and impressively feature-packed WF-1000XM3 true wireless earbuds with state-of-the-art noise cancellation technology.

When that happens, you can expect the redesigned true wireless earbuds to support the Bluetooth 5.2 standard, up from Bluetooth 5.0 on the WF-1000XM3, which should result into a pretty significant connectivity upgrade. Perhaps more importantly, a newer and undoubtedly faster MediaTek chipset is likely to improve the already stunning noise cancellation, overall sound quality, and battery life.
In a nutshell, every important aspect is all but guaranteed to jump to the next level with the help of several under-the-hood enhancements. Now it remains to be seen how all these internal upgrades and some apparent external changes to both the buds themselves and their bundled charging case will impact the $230 list price of the current-gen WF-1000XM3.
