”Still superb, and now more affordable”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 award-winner.

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 Amazing Headphones Heard from my friend these were great headphones and always wanted a great pair of headphones. Have been through so many headphones but as soon as I heard these they were a different level of quality sound. The features are easy to use , great use time but most importantly the sound is fantastic. Use with 360 takes to a different level ive not heard . Excellent choice of headphones and a must buy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality headphone Audio quality and noise reduction are top. the combined use of the on/off switch with the bluetooth pairing function is not optimal if you switch regularly from source device. The google function is not straightforward (or I missed some steps). I hoped the phone worked as a Google home device, but I did not see this (yet?)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad microphone, but good sound for music The Sound is good, but talking in phone is bad, sounds boxy and the microphone is catastrophic! The other person barely hear what I say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line noise-cancelling I have had the headphones for a couple of weeks and I am very satisfied with them. The noise canceling is beyond my expectations, shutting out most annoying sounds. The quality of the sound when listening to music or podcasts is great. Overall, a great product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really decent sound and NC but faulty design These headphones were great until I noticed two peculiar things about it and did some reading. The sound quality over bluetooth and over AUX when they are powered on is really really good, not mind blowing but certainly worth the price. Battery life and comfort of wearing are great - you can use them easily for a week without charging and wear them for few hours without any discomfort. The informative voice alerts such as on/off/bluetooth pairing etc. are not annoying like in so many bluetooth headsets and can actually be turned off in the app. The touch controls work really well and are quite intuitive and if you do get a lot of accidental touches you can also turn them off in the phone app. Now to the cons and the faults. These headphones sound WAY worse when they are not powered and work just over passive AUX connection - pretty muffled and unappealing. Also, since certain software version these headphones activate the "Focus on Voice" feature when you turn on the Noise Cancelling and this cannot be turned off - this introduces unnecessary white noise that is not there if you use the app and adjust the slider just a little lower than the NC (unfortunately this cannot be persisted so if you comect e.g. to a laptop or dont have an app you will get the noise by default). Furthermore, this noise grows louder in the right earpiece the longer you use these headphones - after about an hour it becomes absolutely annoying and you can hear it over the music. It basically means you cannot use these headphones in Noise Cancelling mode for longer than about an hour. After that time you need to put them aside for some time and then the noise will get down to almost not noticible level. This is probably some sort of a design flaw related to overheating or moisture I am not sure but it certainly has no right to appear on headphones of this price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything perfect but Multi Device Connectivity Superb sounding headphones and great features. The only thing I hate is to keep going into pairing mode to connect to multiple devices.. For an NFC device it's not such a big deal but for others, it is a huge drawback. Otherwise I highly recommend these brilliant pair of headphones!
