We are hoping that the rumor of Sony WF 1000-XM3 is true.
Sony’s WF-1000XM3 is one of the best true wireless earbuds that the customers can buy right now for themselves. If they buy right now they even might get better quality, with rumors mounting that the wireless ear-buds will be supported by Hi-Res Audio.
The ear-buds of Sony appeared very briefly on the Qualcomm aptX website, it was then being described as ‘aptX HD Enabled’. The post was then swiftly taken down, but not before the post was spotted by The Walkman Blog.
We still do not know whether this was a mistake or it was a premature post on their website, this also could mean that aptX HD support is also coming to the Sony 1000XM3 in the form of a firmware update on it.
aptX HD is a Bluetooth codec that can wirelessly transit Hi-Res Audio files at 24bit/48kHz. This is something that, until now, the Sony WF 1000XM3 has not been able to handle.
The Benefit Of aptX HD
Unlike the lossy MP3 files, the Hi-Res Audio codecs are also capable of reproducing the full range of sound from recordings which have been mastered from better-than-CD quality music sources, this is a sound that closely replicates the actual quality that the musicians and the engineers were working within the studio. And also at the very same time of the recording as well.
The increase bit depth of Hi-Res Audio also improves the dynamic range, basically giving the customers a greater breadth of the things to hear from the recording that the made. This makes the soundtrack even more expansive and detailed than the previous one.
Audiophiles swear by Hi-Res streaming services like the Tidal, Amazon Music HD, and Qobuz for the upcoming season, and if Sony WF 1000XM3 can appeal to the market by bringing the fidelity of Hi-Res Audio to the convenience of truly wireless earbuds, then it could reinvigorate their already-brilliant ear-buds.
