The WF-1000X is a noise-insulated Bluetooth headset that fronts an adaptive sound control feature (which adjusts ambient sound filtering according to the user's environment and activity), but -- like most cord-free models -- balances this out with a less-than-spectacular 3-hour working time (9-hour, if the wireless charging case is fully used).

Special features: Ambient Sound Mode, Smart Listening by Adaptive Sound Control (automatically detects user activity and adjusts ambient sound settings to it)
