Sony adds much-needed volume control to its WF-1000XM3 earbuds – Engadget, Google News




While Alexa support is the new feature that will jump out at most people, the star of the show here is the addition of on-device volume control. When hereviewed them this past summer, Engadget’s Billy Steele said his main gripe with the WF – 1000 XM3’s was that he couldn’t adjust the volume on the earbuds themselves. Every time he wanted to do that, he had to dig out his smartphone to do so.

Just keep in mind that the touch surface on each earbud can only be dedicated to a single function. You have to sacrifice quick access to one of the WF – 1000 XM3’s other features – be that the noise cancellation toggle, digital assistant summon or playback controls – in order to easily adjust the volume. A single tap increases the volume, while a tap and hold lowers it. So Sony’s implementation here isn’t perfect, but at least the option is there where it wasn’t before.

You can grab the firmware update through Sony’s Headphones Connect app, available onAndroidandiOS.
