”Sony raises the bar for true wireless earbuds.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 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 5 out of 5 by from Totally immersive listening experience I bought these after watching endless YouTube reviews and comparisons. Initially I was looking for a cheaper alternative sub £100. But then I thought.... what the hell? Get the best sounding earbuds. I briefly owned the predecessor modelWF1000X however returned them due to dropouts (a known issue). The sound on those was unrivalled IMO. After receiving the WF1000MX3 (which arrived in under 24 hours from RS - excellent service) I managed to easily pair them with my android phone. Finding the right tips is crucial, I started with silicon, then back to memory foam and now back to silicon again. You need them deep in your ear canal (Tip - pull your pinna back while inserting to straighten your ear canal) I just vanish inside the soundstage, trebles crisp, bass is powerful (I use Excited Equaliser settings but this varies by genre). You will hear details you never did before in tracks you think you knew Noise cancelling is very good although you can hear wind and fans, it's not 100%. The Sony app is excellent and gives a good level of control and customisation. Call quality is good. I've used MS Team with my laptop - crystal clear. They are heavier and bulkier than their peers and I would not use for exercising. But for immersive music and calls meetings these more than deliver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great pair of earphones Excellent sound and comfortable to wear. The headphone app is quite useful, being able to customise the headphones to the sound you want. The online instructions for the app need updating however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and 360 surround with Tidal Streaming I knew these would be better than my existing headphones, but did not realize how good. Add in the use of Tidal streaming customised by personal ear photo tuning and surround sound with reasonable Noise cancelling (not total in my view but acceptable), the result is a very pleasurable listening experience. This is due to the combination of the headphines and the excellent hifi quality streaming subscription!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant These were recommended to me so I bought them and I can't praise them enough. Very happy with them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Selecting the correct ear tip is paramount!! I purchased these for various applications mainly to listen to the tv and music from my hi fi via a high end bluetooth transmitter and they sound excellent, a big setup from using the iPhone in sound, but to get the absolute best is to try all the ear tips, I also purchased more ear tips to see if they made any sound improvements and there was an difference. I have one moan, that is, I would find it very useful to connect to my iPhone at the same time as connecting to the high end bluetooth transmitter so I can do adjustments, I have a second pair of earbuds that do, but they don’t sound as accurate as the Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound! I brought these after all the amazing sound reviews. I was not disappointed! Brilliant sound. Took a while to get used to the app and finding out the best ear buds from the selection. I was concerned if they would stay in while running as there are various reviews saying different things but I find they are fine and havent felt like they were going to fall out, although I think this is because I have found a great fit with the ear buds and this differs from person to person depending on ear shape, also the sound isnt as great while running as the are on the heavy side but much better than having the annoying wires in my opinion! I would certainly recomend these I have had lots of compliments on them and the charging case it brilliant!
