  • 1Description

No matter where you go, you can be alone with your music by using the WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Canceling Over-Ear Headphones from Sony. Noise cancellation is accomplished with Sony's dedicated HD Noise-Canceling QN1 processor and Sense Engine.

When used with a compatible source device, LDAC transmits approximately three times more data, up to 990 kb/s, compared to conventional Bluetooth. This is meant to make your high-resolution audio content sound even better when it's played back through the 1.57" drivers with LCP diaphragms (Liquid Crystal Polymer).

    Sony WH-1000XM3 reviews

    WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Canceling Over-Ear Headphones (Silver) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    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 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.

    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 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 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...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Bose Better than than the Bose Quiet Comfort for noise cancelling. With 3 dogs and an early bird spouse, these have saved my sanity!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Bose QC 35s We need2recognize these r a pair of ANC headphones&that is what I’m rating,not high-def headset that uses data dense file.Dont know why1would purchase a hi-res player & headset.Cost a fortune&if u listen2ur music on the go, subway trains, street c horns, buses, wind etc r all going2be interfering c ur listening pleasure - thus ANC.If I want2really listen2music I sit down,relax&listen2my surround sound system at home, which is a heck of alot better than any hi-res headphone. Back2 MX3. ANC on MX3 blows away Bose QC 35, which I used4past 3 yrs until I broke them & Im glad I did. I used QC 35s everywhere. I can only comment on the street, supermarket, my kitchen c the cooktop exhaust hood going & NYC Q subway train. Intimately knowing how the QC35s performed in those settings I can tell u the MX3s seriously outperform. I find the XM3 more comfortable. 30 hrs of play time is very nice, & 5 min charge = 5hrs, will come in handy when I travel. Sound quality? Initially I found it pretty good, but was a little disappointed. Then I watched a you-tube video on how2tweak sound&woe, dramatic improvement2point of serious listening pleasure. The bad. I really don’t like “buttons”, but more I use them better I’m getting. If I take XM3 off & hang headset around my neck, “buttons” r accidently being hit by my chin turning music on, siri on etc. Price? Well we’d all like2spend less,but they’re better than so called best ANC headset on market&the same price. u r getting what u paid for.
