”Sony delivers true wireless excellence”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 award-winner.

Industry-leading noise cancellation

Featuring Sony’s HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e, the WF-1000XM3s take noise cancelling effectiveness to new levels in such small headphones. The powerful processor not only cancels more noise across all frequencies but also does so using less power – helping to maximise battery life.

Sound precision with DSEE HX and 6mm drivers
DSEE HX upsamples compressed music files, giving them a fuller, richer sound. Using tiny, 6mm drivers inside the earphones, the WF-1000XM3 delivers a rich, clear and enveloping sound with whatever music or speech source you’re listening to.

Fine-tune the sound with Headphones Connect
Get the Sony Headphones Connect app (available on Apple iOS and Google) and you can fine-tune the sound to exactly how you like it. Ambient Sound Control lets you decide just how much background noise you hear while the equalizer tunes the sound output to your exact preferences.

Adaptive Sound Control adjusts to you
Another feature available via the Headphones Connect app is Adaptive Sound Control. This detects whether you’re walking, traveling or stationary and then adjusts the ambient sound settings to suit – automatically.

Enhanced Bluetooth connection
The latest Bluetooth chip delivers sound to both earbuds simultaneously, rather than from one to the other. This improves the music’s timing and keeps the earphones precisely in sync with the music or speech – especially handy when you’re watching videos. For a speedy connection with your smartphone, the WF-1000XM3 also features NFC (Near Field Communication). Simply tap the NFC-equipped phone against the headphone’s case and it's ready to go.

Amazon Alexa and Google voice assistants
Using the built-in microphone, the Sony WF-1000XM3 headphones are compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google’s voice Assistant. Simply press and hold the noise-cancelling button and ask your PA a question. The touch sensitive pad also lets you communicate more easily – simply hold the pad to instantly turn down the volume with Quick Attention.

Extended battery time with the charge case
Charged up, these tiny earphones now give you up to 8 hours music playback, with NC off. Switch on Noise Cancelling, and the playback time is up to 6 hours. Supplied with a charging case, once your headphones have run out of power, pop them in the case and within around 1.5 hours you’re all charged and ready to go. You can charge a further three times, giving you the potential for over 24 hours of music.

Secure and comfortable
Featuring ergonomic tri-hold structures, these earphones make three points of contact with your ear for a comfortable and secure fit. The high friction rubber surface also help in keeping the earbuds snug and the outside noise out.

Connect to award-winning sound on the move, with the Sony WF-1000XM3.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, not yet superlative. I bought this a month ago and I'm impressed by the features, they are useful and work great. I was a little concerned by the battery issue but I admit they seem to last much longer than I thought. The noise cancelling is also surprisingly good for a pair of IEM. The fitting is perfect to me and the size appropriate. Only the sound could be more satisfying given the price. Some genre sounds very good but when it comes to a more "saturated" type of music, wired earbuds still deliver a better yeld. The only real flaw I see, is the case, which quite big and, above all, strangely shaped: unconfortable in the pocket and uneasy to place on the table.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bit disappointing. Sound quality good. Set up and pairing not so much. Have tried twice with chat help. 1st failed, my fault device not fully charged. 2nd failed when during the chat the contact just dropped off. I will try chat help again when I get time. My main reason for choosing these is the promised built-in Alexa which I not yet been able to access.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointing I was very disappointed with these headphones, and send them back within two days. I was connected with an old and new iPhone SE, a mac and a windows laptop. All found it hard to find on bluetooth. Managed to connect the laptops once I did a factory reset on the headphones (not something that was explained how to do on the packet, had to look up online). After connecting to laptop would not connect with the other phones. If you pay this much for headphones, ease of connection is paramount. The sound quality was good however and this was an appealing part of the product. I found the shape of them with the majority of the weight being on the outside of the ear, irrespective of bud size, meant they often fell out my ears just walking. Poor call quality, with break ups in the connection, but very good battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best earphone I've tried! Of the wired earphones and headsets I've had the opportunity to try, the WF-1000XM3 is by far the best. Sound quality is amazing, comfort is good, and the design is elegant. Battery life lasts A LOT! Sometimes more than the officially indicated 6 h. The features are convenient: once an earbud is taken off, the device automatically pauses. After you'll put in back in, it just continue to play. The touch controls can be customised and are pretty intuitive. The many different sizes of (included in the case) allow for an awesome fit for everyone's ear. Noise cancelling is really helpful to concentrate on what your favourite playlist. The only negative point is related with noise cancelling: when this option is activated, the device automatically detects the type of ambient sounds quiet at home, noisy on the street, in a train station with an announcement in the back, etc.). The thing is, once the type of ambient sound changes, there is a little "beep" like noise and less than a second of pause in what you're hearing. This can be painful if it changes every minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great battery life and fit Was looking for in ear phones that were as good as Apple AirPods Pro but not as pricey. These have great audio, noise cancelling and battery life. the fit is great as they have a way of locking into your ears unlike other EarPods that struggle to match your ear shape. The app control is great also but I am struggling a bit with the touch controls on the earphones themselves but that could be something I just need to get used to. Overall can highly recommend these as a real contender to Apple AirPods Pro as they are quality and much cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from noise cancellation it has the best noise cancellation l have ever heard. l like the sony app since it has many things to tune which means it’s flexible. when it comes to sound, its the best since it has a punchy base which is not to much for people who are not base heards

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible choice for me I bought these ear pods thinking that they would be a great product of high quality and comfortable to wear. I can not deny that the sound quality was very good but as for practibility and usability, a very bad choice. The earbuds would not stay in my ears, no matter which size rubber attachment I used and the touch sensor, being extremely sensitive, changed the sound setting every time went to stop the piece from falling out of my ear. I appreciate that everyone's ears are shaped differently and that some models are not suitable for some people but for they were impossible to use so I got a refund and bought a different brand
