    Sony WH-1000XM3 reviews

    WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Canceling Over-Ear Headphones (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect non-professional stuff I've tested both SONY XM3 and BOSE QC35 II and SONY is better than BOSE in my overall test. They have almost the same sound quality but the WH-1000X3 offers a much better noise canceling. BOSE still wins in the material finish and enables you to connect the earphone with 2 devices simultaneously while SONY still works with only one each time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing headphones for music; horrific for phone calls. Best headphones ever! But, no one, I mean no one can understand a word I say when I use them to answer the phone. Sad... But, I love them too much to return them; I will use them for flying (which I do a lot), but never ever for communication.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a sound-proof room I have owned the Bose for many years and have been happy with them. But these Sony's are on another level for sound isolation and quality audio. I can't think of anything that can be improved upon here. The downloadable app gives you lots of choices for different sound environments, such as Club, Arena, Outdoor Stage, etc. I find them useful for watching sports on TV or listening to live jazz recordings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best WNC headphone! I read a lot of reviews before purchasing Sony WH-1000XM3. I agree that it's the best WNC headset ever...
    Date published: 2018-10-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ones to beat I had the Mk1 of these and was very happy with the performance. However, the headband plastic part snapped recently and I needed to buy a replacement. I went through online reviews and tested a whole bunch of the current crop in this same price category (Bose QC2, Sennheiser etc.). After reading the early reviews on this, and having not found any of the competitors to be better to my Mk1s, I pre-ordered these based on positive early reviews. To me, these are better than the Mk1s in every way, and also beat any of the competition that I tried. Comfortable, great sound, long battery life (~30 hrs), and excellent noise cancelling. I've used the companion app on iOS, but I didn't really find that it added much, but you don't really need it to use them anyway. The "personalized" noise cancelling setup from the app didn't really change much for me, at least. Overall super happy with these. Would buy again.
