”Analogue amplification ups the ante for these noise-cancelling headphones.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 Product of the Year.

The best made better – improved Digital Active noise cancellation

Already one of the best noise cancellation systems out there, Sony’s Digital Active system is better than ever. The new QN1 processor is more powerful than ever, meaning, if you travel by 'plane, train or coach, you’ll hear less background noise than ever. Quiet sections of music are now audible and the whole travel experience becomes more restful than ever before.

More options for noise cancellation
New settings include the ability to cancel out background noise, even without music playing – this is ideal when you’re trying to read in a busy environment. Atmospheric Pressure Optimiser adjusts the frequency response and microphone sensitivity for the best sound when in flight. Use the Sony Headphones Connect app and get even more control over your sound.

Now with the purity of analogue sound
Moving from a digital amp to analogue one has given these award-winning headphones an even purer and more involving sound quality. Whatever the genre of music you listen to, it will simply sound more ‘real’ now there’s an analogue amplifier in charge of pumping out the sound.

Improved wireless Bluetooth connection with NFC
Featuring Bluetooth v4.2 connectivity to your smartphone, tablet or laptop, wireless sound is better than ever from these headphones. For a speedy connection with your smartphone, the WH-1000XM3 also features NFC (Near Field Communication). Simply tap the NFC-equipped phone against the headphones and it's paired and ready to go. If you prefer, a wired connection is also included.

The highest quality wireless sound
Using the LDAC wireless audio system means these headphones are able to receive around three times more detail than ordinary Bluetooth headphones. With an improved frequency response, you’ll hear more of the music, with the quietest details easy to hear.

Plug in the cable and experience Hi-Res sound
With Hi-Res music files now more popular than ever, only Hi-Res headphones will make the most of this expansive-sounding format. Plug in the supplied cable and these Sony headphones become Hi-Res compatible. With a frequency response of 4 - 40,000kHz, the Sony's easily cover a huge frequency response. From the deepest rumbling of sub-bass to subtle harmonics that affect the way we hear top-end notes, the Sony has it covered.

Sound precision with DSEE and LCP drivers
DSEE HX upsamples compressed music files, giving them a fuller, richer sound. Using 40mm drivers with LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) diaphragms, these Sony headphones are quick to react to the most dynamic music.

Now with Amazon Alexa and Google voice assistants
Using the built-in microphone, the Sony WH-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. For previous versions (prior to 4.1.1.) full instructions on how to update can be found here.

Quicker to charge and 30 hours battery life
The XM3 version is even quicker to charge than before. Use the optional AC adaptor and just 10 minutes of charging is enough for 5 hours playback – perfect for when you’re in a hurry. Once fully charged up (in around 3 hours), these headphones give up to 30 hours of playback – easily enough for a week’s worth of commuting.

Lighter and more comfortable than before
Compared to the previous version, the WH1000XM3’s weigh 20g less. Combine this with the thicker and softer foam used and you’ve got even greater comfort than before. Subtle changes to the style makes them look more attractive, too.

Made for music on the move
Supplied with a premium travel case, the foldable WH-1000XM3 headphones make the perfect travel partner. An aeroplane adapter plug is also supplied – letting you make the most of the noise cancellation ability and enjoy your music with far less disturbance.

Travel with the best, pack the Sony WH-1000XM3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Headphones Sound clarity and battery life are amazing with this product and being able to customise them to your surroundings and the way you like to listen to your music make these headphones second to non. The only room for improvement is the colour of the silver ones, (I’ve seen better)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My near perfect cans I bought the Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones to replace my Sennheiser cans with which the ear-pads have disintegrated. I also need noise cancelling headphones because my home is rather cramped nowadays. The Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones I received are well made - and look it. It took just over two hours to charge them for the first time, but the charge has lasted for ages. I don’t know if it was for 30 hours though because I didn't time it. I will need to have had these for some time before I can confirm this claim. I have however been finding it a tad tricky to switch the bluetooth connection between my iPhone and my iMac and back again. I find it easiest if the destination device is the only one powered up at the time my Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones are switched on (i.e. iMac to iPhone or vice versa). Connected to iMac and pressing the ‘On’ button on the headphones for a couple of seconds merely shuts the headphones down. Pressing the headphones against the iPhone (NFC?) doesn’t work either. It DID when I first used the headset by the way. So I may be doing something wrong. The supporting software (Adaptive Sound Control and so on) is a pain, but only in so far as I can only find an iPhone version of it. My Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones sound distinctly better when utilising my iPhone as opposed to driven by my iMac. This is annoying. On the other hand, I find the iMac catches up sonically when connected directly using the supplied lead. It just can’t walk up to the bin at the end of my garden with the cans on. No biggie now that I am aware of this. The noise cancelling still appears to work using the cable. The case that comes with the Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones is excellent. It even has a helpful diagram showing the correct way to fold the headphones to store them. It holds all the cables too. If like mine, your home has cables decades old lying around all over the place, being able to keep the cables with the relevant device is a positive boon. By the way, the charging cable is really short, about 25cm. A pain when space is contended. See my photos. I can’t use my existing USB cables either. It’s not a deal breaker though. I don’t think I need worry about having my iMac using the cable instead of bluetooth. It just means I can’t do the dishes at the same time. If I want to go for a walk I can transfer it to my iPhone. Just switching between the two needs working on. Other than that, these are my perfect headphones. Thanks Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features, Fantastic I bought this set about a month ago and i am i did. It syncs well and fast in connecting to my iphone and gadgets. The cushions are so soft and nice which accommodates your ears for long hours without any irritation. And the 360 sound listening with the apps is just amazing only that you need to pay for some apps. To me its a great headset everyone needs to try on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bluetooth Headphones These are the best Bluetooth headphones I've heard. Surprisingly comfortable considering they enclose your ears. I've worn them continuously for 3 hours without discomfort. I recommend them without hesitation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! Have had these for around a month and I haven't regretted for a moment. The noise cancellation is amazing (you do get talking and higher pitched sounds coming through, but overall 9/10) and the sound quality is phenomenal. I would say the in ear casing is a little snug as my ears can hurt after a while, but it's nothing major and wouldn't be a reason not to buy them. Using the in-app equaliser adds an element of customisation that can't be overstated - you can really make your music your own. Not sure what new features the WM4s will have but it's going to be tough to improve on these!
