The Sony WH-1000XM6 might come next year

Sony Linkbuds S

Sony is one of the more popular audio brands in the industry. We’re all waiting for its latest flock of flagship-grade headphones to hit the market, but we have some bad news. The Sony WH-1000XM6 and WF-1000XM6 won’t be coming until next year.

While their name is a pain in the neck to say, the Sony WH-1000XM series of over-the-ear headphones are some of the best that you can get on the market. They use Sony’s custom-made audio drivers to deliver some killer audio and they use Sony’s proprietary chips as well.

The Sony WH-1000XM6 and Sony WF-1000XM6 won’t be coming until next year

The WH-1000XM5 came out back in 2022, the XM4 came out in 2020, and the XM3 came out in, you guessed it, 2018. So, Sony is going on a two-year release cycle with its headphones. This makes sense, as people aren’t as likely to swap their phones year-to-year as they are their phones.

Phones slow down over time, and that prompts people to switch up. When it comes to headphones… well, you can be certain that newer music hasn’t become harder for headphones to process over the years. So, Sony is able to comfortably wait two years to release its newest headphones.

As for how long we’re going to be waiting, that’s a bit in the air. According to the report, we should expect these headphones to arrive sometime in the first half of 2025. The XM5 launched around mid-2022, so we can assume that the headphones will get some sort of announcement in one year’s time.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any word on what kind of specs to expect or what kind of improvements Sony will make. The company has been improving the line over the years, so we can expect the usual slew of audio improvements.

There is some good news, however

Those of you who are into the Sony Linkbuds are in luck. According to the report, Sony will likely unveil its next generation of Linkbuds this year. We don’t have an exact date, but it’s good to know that we should see them before the year’s out.

If you recall, the Linkbuds are the earbuds with the radical open design that people spoke about in volume. We expect to see the second iteration of the Linkbuds and the Linkbuds S this year. Hopefully, we’ll see more information about these earbuds soon.
