”Sony delivers true wireless excellence”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 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.

“Sony recommends you always update your devices with their latest available software. Software update notifications for WF-1000XM3, and the updates themselves, are delivered via the Sony Headphones Connect app, available free of charge on the Google Play and Apple App Store.”

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In proved listening experence I had my earbuds as a xmas presant, pairing took a little understanding but when achieved was very rewarding rewarding, one little problem is one ear bud occasionly falls out , so the right size ear bud cover is advantagious

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very decent earbuds Very pleased with this earbuds. They fit quite comfortably and they sound great. The pairing is also very easy, and they connect instantly when I need them. The only issues I have found are interruptions when the software is figuring out if you're standing or sitting. It would be a lot better if sound was just quietened during this process, rather than cut out entirely. Having said that, the interruption is very short, and not too glaring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have bought these in 2019. I've been using these buds every day for around a month now, absolutely excellent. Sound quality is great, noise cancelling is far better than I thought possible with buds (obviously the over ear ones are better but these are amazing). I've had no issues with Bluetooth connectivity, once I got them connected to everything I want them to work with, so that's my Xperia 1 iii, my Walkman A105 and my Windows laptop. I can't fault the buds but the tiny instruction leaflets I always ignore because I just go online, that's where my only issue arrived. Straight out the box they connected with the Sony devices using the connect app but with the laptop, I wasn't sure how to connect them. Under the "Connect With Bluetooth" or whatever the page was called, it told you how to connect to things with the app, there is no app for Windows. There was also no link to a completely different page that showed you the controls to activate Bluetooth (hold both touch sensors, if you're wondering). There is a video which of course is for the XM4 headphones but that's less than useless, unless you are trying to connect a set of headphones, not buds... Anyhoo. I found out how to do it and all is well, a quick line or link added to that one page on the website and I wouldn't have a gripe at all, not often I can say that about a product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound quality and noise cancelling Bought this around 5 months ago, I wasn't going to go for these but a much cheaper brand. I'm glad I didn't, the sound quality is amazing. Noise cancelling is perfect when you want to be an introvert. Having tried tons of much cheaper earphones I can officially say these are the best so far. Nice job sony

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great - just need to get the right fit! Bought these to replace my previous Sony 1000X headphones that I use for work calls and were getting very worn. Love the new set! Great that I can use either or both ears. Some challenges trying the different ends to see which fits best - I'm still trying them out. Some strange robotic sounds with Windows at times but it then seems to sort itself out when I put them back into the case and take them out again. Overall happy and hopefully fit the fit sorted!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sound quality is good sound quality is very good, Bluetooth wireless reception range is much better than my air pod. The size is bit big and heavy. Would b better if with wireless charging case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever had Forced to go to BT as new phone only has USB-C. These ear buds get good reviews for a reason. Incredible clear sound and the crispest bass I've ever heard. Very happy with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Complicated Perhaps it's me but I do not find the sound very impressive- The check on the ears does not work- disappointing as these headphones had an excellent review in What Hifi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great earbuds! I bought sony wf-1000xm3 one month ago and I was using it for the calls, meetings, and watching videos on my laptop. I want to recommend this earbuds to anyone!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What noise cancelling I bought these about 2 months ago. Once I changed the ear fittings my experience was much better. However, all the hype about noise cancellation, what noise cancellation? Even with the smallest ear pieces this has never been achieved. In fact for noise cancellation they perform no better than my husbands much cheaper earbuds. Plus the beeps and annoying announcements are distracting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I bought these wireless headphones after trawling through a lot of reviews of a range of similar products. This product provides the user with a selection of different sized 'ear tips' to choose from which is very useful if like me you have small ears. The product was exceptionally easy to set up even for a technophobe like myself. At the moment I have only used them for short runs but am really pleased with them. The sound is very clear even when using the ambient setting. It is brilliant not to have to faff about with wires!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great earbuds with the great noise cancellation I bought last week and they are working very well. Great noise cancellation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise cancelling at this price is well it Great price, great noise cancelling, lovely rich sound and the headphones pair quite well and fast with all my devices although only one at a time so no fast switching between devices

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price..... These true wireless earbuds are worth the price and are well built but they are a smudge magnet....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product and great service I bought a pair of Sony headphones recently and I am thrilled with them. They have incredible sound and are super comfy in my ears. They connect so quick to my phone and the charging point is super handy. The salesman who sold me the product was also really helpful with giving specs over the phone, he really helped me with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel Used on flights, excellent noise canceling for in ear type. Not as good as my over ear bose but not comparable really. Plus for Google assistant.
Date published: 2022-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value These are a bargain, since they have almost all the features of the newer model for half the price! The case is slightly larger and I think there’s some location specific alterations to the noise cancelling which is not featured on these, but to get a pair of great sounding buds with excellent noise cancelling for this price is a great deal. The battery is very impressive and everything works very smoothly. I have a pair of the over ear WH-1000XM4 so already had the app which is very useful to tinker with the EQ settings. Obviously the over-ear headphones are a bit richer in the bass and a bit more spatial sounding, and noise cancelling is more effective because the whole ear is fully covered, but the buds are pretty impressive in all departments, considering they’re a chuck in the pocket and carry everywhere option.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sound, terrible for calling Bought this 2 weeks ago and have had to return it. They are great for listening to music and sound cancelling is amazing but that's it. When you need to make a call or if someone is calling you forget it. No one could hear me, they could here everything outside but they could not hear my voice which is not practical. Just a word of advice Sony, if your making headphones and they are not built for taking calls, make it known on the box.
Date published: 2022-01-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yet to try as I'm registering them Looks quality and the demo setting then up sounded good but time will tell. Guessing I'll be happy with them as I usually am with Sony products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I have used these now for a month and find the sound amazing
Date published: 2022-01-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sound is brilliant Once set up they sounded brilliant so 5 out of 5 for that. However, I found them tricky to set up and didn’t seem to sync with the app (which I already had for my over the ear Sony headphones) consistently and they seemed to do things on their own which was a bit annoying. It also takes a bit of time to get the right fit for the ear. But overall, really good so 4 out of 5.
Date published: 2022-01-24
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rather disappointing The sound quality is superb, but they did not fit well - they kept falling out. I followed the advice and tried ever bigger ear tips and achieved an acceptable fit with the largest size. But still no noise cancellation. So I bought very expensive memory foam tips in the hope of an even better fit. Fit is now very secure but noise cancellation still has little or no impact.
