”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 Unusable for calling but good for music I bought these headphones as I was looking for a single product that would combine the things I needed and was looking for (not simply hoped for) in such a headset . Price was not the issue, I am willing to pay whatever is necessary for a premium product if it is really fit for purpose. As advertised, the WF-1000XM3's seemed like the choice to go with if I wanted to have: 1. wireless, hands-free calling whilst on the move 2. noise cancellation technology (useful in busy offices, airplanes, commutes) 3. good sound quality for listening to music The extra perks that I thought are really cool are also and were a huge bonus to me: 4. the headphones are relatively comfortable 5. the google assistant 6. the app that comes with the headphones and their adjustability It is now after three weeks of use that I deeply regret to say but I will be returning my earbuds. 5 out of the 6 features listed above are true and the headphones perform extremely well, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THEY ARE COMPLETELY USELESS WHEN USED AS A CALLING DEVICE. The call quality is ridiculously bad, and even though the user of the headphones can clearly hear the person he is talking to, that is absolutely not the case for his/hers interlocutor. As call quality is an important feature a headphone in my case MUST have, and was one of the reasons to buy this particular headset (based on its advertising it appeared superb - see attached picture), the failure to meet the most basic quality standards here made me rate these headphones merely average. If you do not plane to use them for calling purposes they should be absolutely fine, but because Iam looking for a all-in-one solution this is definitely not it. Did not expect this from Sony, especially not at this price point. Feel free to google this issue on the web, it is quite big amongst the community who bought these headphones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Probably, the best true wireless earbuds right now These are probably the best wireless earbuds that one can buy now. What I like: + Ease of use + Awesome sound (everything sounds great) + Sony app is very useful + Easy to configure + Noise cancelling works great + Premium look What I don't like - Call quality might be better - No water resistance - No wireless charging

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for music Have used them for a month. Pros: - great sounds quality - Noise Cancelling works well - charging case and head phones are of very good asembling quality - usb-c - changeable ear buds are of two different materials and few sizes Cons: - Call quality could be better. Too much external noise gets into microphone - despite good choice of buds, phones don't seat too firmly. Rather easy to fall out. - when you start or stop the music, there is a micro second delay in action between left and right phone. That is, music starts in the right first and then in the left. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying for the first few days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice sound Bought mainly for travel - The good points are definitely the sound quality - Music and watching films gave a great experience. The negative points are that they are just too big, the fit is not great in my ears (despite trying all the tips). They just don't hold well in my ears (Too much mass outside the ears). I found the noise cancelling reasonable for aircraft noise.
