”Analogue amplification ups the ante for these noise-cancelling headphones.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 Product of the Year.

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 Amazon Alexa and Google voice assistants
Using the built-in microphone, the Sony WH-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. For previous versions (prior to 4.1.1.) full instructions on how to update can be found here.

Quicker to charge 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 weigh 20g less. Combine this with the thicker 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 Works Brilliantly So good to be able to listen to my choice of music and filter out other people's! Brilliant sound. Excellent noise cancelling. Comfortable and easy to use basics. More complicated functions, too; but I have yet to learn those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing noise cancellation I bought these after suffering from anxiety and hearing next door's TV. They aren't cheap, but boy are they quality. The noise cancellation is something else, I can't even hear the tumble dryer in the kitchen when sat in the lounge. They connect beautifully to bluetooth and the sound is fantastic. Well worth the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable It’s easy to Bluetooth but found it tricky trying to adjust the volume it needs repeated movements Also linked to the iPad I get stero sound ok. Unfortunately bluetotthed to the transmitter plugged into the headphone socket on my Samsung tv I only get sound to one earpiece. So not totally satisfied at present and where to get help. Sound cancelling works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blue tooth headphones around These headphones were recommended to me by a friend as I could not find an all round item that suited my needs 100%. I am so pleased that I acted upon the recommendation and purchased a pair as they are the most comfortable and adaptable headphones I have ever used. I would highly recommend to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding. I wouldn’t have believed if I hadn’t heard it with my own ears, or perhaps more to the point, really hadn’t heard it ! I put them on and was immediately impressed. I’d researched noise reducing headphones for a while, and had tried some of the competitors, of which only one came close to what I was wanting. Eventually I took the plunge and bought these. Wow what a difference. They didn’t win by a tad, they trounced the competition. My son tried them and literally his mouth hung open at the surprise of how effectively they reduced noise around you. I bought them primarily for travelling, and to avoid the noise of a household full of teenagers and young adults. Wish I’d discovered them years ago when they got into some of the outlandish ‘musicians’ they listen to at max volume. I enjoy listen to music, and talking books with them on,and the clarity, depth and quality of the music is greatly enhanced. I’ve also found that they help when my tinnitus is really banging away. All in all a great pair of headphones, I’m impressed, and that’s not easy to do. Now the music I hear is mine, but it is fun watching the teens and young adults jiggle about to their music I can’t hear. Hey have I discovered a new silent spectator sport ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I got these Got these a couple of weeks ago after reading and seeing good reviews. I have to say i"m very impressed. I use them all the time with my tv, iPhone, laptop and tablet. The connection is always great. Even when some distance from the source. Sound quality is also great, and gets better as they run in. The battery lasts well, and is quick to recharge. Only downside I found is the woefully short charging cable. Easily fixed with a replacement cable. But come on Sony a longer cable for a premium product is"nt too much to ask. That aside I award 5*+. Well done Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What they said on the box I bought these specifically for my first cruise , as the noise cancelling would be good on board plane and ship, which it turned out to be great ,although it didn’t seem to blank out noisy Americans, maybe next time you could use them in your testing procedure , one other point the fitting for onboard Bluetooth didn’t fit the plane
