”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 3 out of 5 by from Great sound, noise cancel well short of over ears I’ve had these for a few weeks now as a less bulky alternative to Bose QC35 over the ear headphones. In a normal environment the sound of the ear buds is awesome...deep defined bass and precise ping treble give a rich rewarding soundscape almost as good as the QC 35s. I used Comply tips to get more comfort and noise cancelling as they use memory foam. This makes the buds super comfy, and they were fine for comfort with the supplied silicon tips. On the street there is a bit of wind noise. The controls include a one-tap pause/play on the right side, and a 3 way toggle from NC, to Ambient sound control, to Ambient sound pass through. TBH it’s hard to detect any difference on the Ambient sound. Noise cancelling cuts out about 50% of airplane noise and clever sound management magic somehow makes you here more of the magic. It’s well short of what my QC35s do in providing an oasis of quiet on trains and planes, but it’s still a good less bulky solution....and better than Bose's buds. If I was Sony I’d switch the sound control to the phone and put a volume control directly onto the buds. At the moment you control volume thru the device, and yet that is the control one uses most. So, would I buy these again if I need great ear buds: darned YES. Are they as good as over the ear noise cancelling headphones in noisy environments: NO. I’d give them 90% for general use (just need volume control), and 60% for use in noise-cancelling environments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound The only reason is not getting 5 is the slight delay while it switches from ambient sound to noise cancelling. Otherwise I'm really impressed with these and the service at Richer sounds was great as ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect but still worth the money Owned for a few weeks now and they are superb (when connected) with excellent sound and outstanding NC, however, they do struggle to maintain connectivity in busy places such as railway stations and this can be very annoying. Having said this, it is a known issue with many BT earphones and I guess we are still some way off perfection. Compared to my RHA750i wired earphones, I do think the sound is superior with better bass response and with NC activated, they really do shut off the outside world and deliver a sublime experience. So despite the BT issues I do think they are worth the money, but not quite a full 5 stars, which for me would include a more reliable connection, regardless of the environment you find yourself in.
