”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 Great sound! I bought a pair of these headphones for myself and was so impressed with the sound quality and service that was provided by Richer Sounds that I purchased a second pair for my Dad's birthday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected These Sony headphones are better than expected. Was difficult to select with current virus restrictions. After many years I've again become enthusiastic re quality music and what a pleasant surprise I've had. These WH-1000XM3 headphones are comfortable as well as creating good sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable ANC I had been looking for a set of NC headphones for a while and boy have I picked the right set. These headphones came out tops when I checked all the on line reviews and tried them out in store with local retailers. WH-1000XM3 does what is says on the Tin, and then some! I am working in my conservatory due to the Covid Crisis and have been able to work through every rain and thunder storm without a murmur, with or without music. In fact, I Love them so much I got my son a pair as well for his Birthday.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great noise cancelling I bought these noice cancelling headphones because they provide the best noise cancelling of any available. I have found them great at cutting out notice in an open plan office and at home so I can work more effectively. They are also great for listening to music when out and about or on public transport. Downsides are that the touch sensitive controls can be tempremental and annoying because it can take a few taps to get it to react. Also I have tried others with better sound quality but as noise cancelling was my priority I went for these. The sound quality is very good anyway. I had a rattle develop after a few months but having sent them back to Sony I received a brand new pair in less than a week so I;m very impressed with the customer services too. These headphones deserve their reputation as the best for noise cancelling performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent noise cancelling I bought these headphones 1 month ago and have used them a lot! We live on a fairly busy road and the noise cancelling in the garden is amazing. When listening to music, the sound is well-balanced and crisp especially with noise cancelling on. My only slight niggle is it would be good to have the sound sharing feature other manufacturers provide as my wife has bought a pair and it would be good for us to both be able to listen to the same source simultaneously.
