”Analogue amplification has transformed the latest version of Sony’s excellent wireless noise-cancelling headphones.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year 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 voice assistant
Using the built-in microphone, the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones are compatible with 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.

Quicker to charger 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 weight 20g less. Combine this with the ticker 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 Quality Headphones worth the Investment Needed a new pair of wireless headphones for some time and was able to invest in these as opposed to my usual budget conscious choices. Having to share a very noisy environment, noise cancelling was a must and it works far better than I expected, or hoped, it would. Found them to be very comfortable for long period of use and they coped very well with the sounds of another TV, music from a Tablet and voices to the extent I could barely hear them. I did, however, have to turn the volume up for these phones compared to my previous set. The headphones are connected to a Denon mini system, without Bluetooth, by use of the Mee Audio AFT-1 Bluetooth TV Connector using the headphone socket out of which we have all the sound from the TV, PC, XBox, PS4, Turntable, and Tablets via the front USB (not on the new Denon!) These headphones are more than capable, were quick to charge up and paired relatively easily. Will be some time before I explore all the possibilities these headphones offer but they are a quality product and well worth investing in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Sound, Excellent Noise Cancelling Bought these to use in my University library/open access areas as they can get incredibly noisy, happy to say the noise cancelling is incredible and blocks out all but the loudest noises of people occasionally shouting at each other! The battery life is equal to or more than advertised from my experience so far which is excellent as this was something I was worried about moving to a wireless set of headphones. Sound wise, they are very clear at the top end, but can get quite bloated (doesn't sound distorted, just quite thick) in the lows depending on the genre of music, not that this is necessarily a bad thing as it is down to personal tastes. I wouldn't quite call them audiophile level as the bass does seem to be boosted somewhat, but they do sound incredible for a wireless set of headphones and use the LDAC codec on newer android phones, so most people would enjoy the sound that they give. The headphones are comfortable to wear, I've worn these for hours at a time and never felt the need to take them off either through my ears warming up or by getting fatigued by the sound coming through the drivers. They also seem to be well made and look like they can take a few knocks, and the included carry case is of a high quality so the durability should be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect headphones to ease the commute Finally decided to treat myself to some new, quality headphones to partner the Sony NW A45 player and glad I opted for these. The sound is crystal clear, super easy to set up and the noise cancelling makes getting the train and walking through central London an enjoyable experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in class Wireless audio and Active NC Bought this during the boxing day sale 2018. Literally the best in class for audio quality and fidelity. Compared to the Bose QC 35 II, These are far better in terms of audio quality and NC. They also fit better on my ears and give a nice tight seal almost. Even after hours of constant use they never get hot or uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service & stock I recently bought the Sony WH-1000XM3’s With some Xmas money I received. I’d done some research but after discussing on the phone with the staff at Richer Sounds, finally made up my mind that these were what I wanted. They reserved them for me to pick up later that day, & price matched a deal I’d found elsewhere. They are superb headphones & I’m really happy with them & the service I received from Richer Sounds. I like going to them as they always give honest advice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, best in class noise cancelling. These headphones produce some excellent sound, but it’s their noise cancelling which is their best feature. Sony have really stepped it up from the previous versions, and they’ve solved the white noise hissing which used to occur in quiet periods of music. The noise cancelling is now truly exceptional. Combined with their portability and clarity of sound, these are going to be my default go-to headphones for the foreseeable future — for good reason.
