Japanese headphone company Final Audio has announced their very first pair of ANC headphones, the UX3000, following the release of the ZE3000 wireless earbuds.

Final’s UX3000 reportedly features a “hybrid noise cancellation methodology” thanks to a new driver designed to withstand the pressures of noise cancellation technology. This allows the UX3000 to output “good noise cancelling performance and exceptional sound quality even for audiophiles”, the brand claims.

According to Final, the noise cancellation is powered by two microphones on each ear cup, allowing the UX3000 to remove ambient noise efficiently.

The minimalist luxury headphone company also says the UX3000 comes with AAC, SBC, aptX, aptX LL codec support, and boasts a 35-hour battery life on a 2-and-a-half hour charge. Should the user run out of battery, however, they can use the 3.5mm headphone cable provided and connect it to their music source to keep the tunes going.

The headphones are also equipped with BlueTooth 5.0 connectivity and multipoint pairing that allows the headphones to be connected to up to two devices at once. Final has also opted to use dynamic drivers with a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response range on the UX3000, allowing “clear and accurate details with rich and vast soundstage”.

The UX3000 also comes with a textured SHIBO finish that reportedly reduces handprints on the casing of the headphones, much like the ZE3000 earbuds, and is foldable for ease of use and travel.

The headphones currently retail for £119 / €139 / $149 on Amazon.
