SONY WH-1000XM3 Surprisingly Good Cans !
I have been using Sony 950B’s & 950N’s both NC and non NC versions. Both are comfortable but seem mildly subdued in the midrange extending down to the human voice range 1.5KHz to 950Hz. The new WH-1000XM3 are built sturdier. The sound is clearer in all ranges and the side volume control is a joy. I have had no problems whatsoever with the finger tapping functionality. Also, I have not encountered any “squeakiness” with the WH-1000XM3’s build as I do with other headphones.
Amazingly, when I first turned on the NC (noise cancelling) function I was stunned. I thought my ears had become plugged up. Pretty much all outside noise was blocked. Then when I engaged some music playback the experience was akin to listening in a sound proofed recording studio. Just listening to the music and nothing else. I do not own a set of Bose NC’s but have tried them. The Sony’s work as well except that I don’t believe they can shut off sound interference totally. It should be noted that the ambient sound level in which I was listening was a normal office type workspace (i.e. there was no heavy construction taking place nearby)
I am surprisingly surprised at the quality, sound and noise cancelling qualities of the Sony’s

Nice piece of ear technology.
Love these headphones. first pair of wireless noice canceling headphones ive owned and so far so good. I listed to misic on these when i go to gym and they do a good job of getting pumped up. At home I lay on bed and watch videos on YouTube and the viewing is much better with good sound. Easy to pair to phone and automatically pair when i power them on. Sony did a good job with these headphones.

Would be available at the end of January?
Carlos T on Jan 15, 2019
  These are currently on back order with no estimated arrival date
These good for working out? Tread mill/outdoor running? Will they stay on my head if i do sit ups ect..
A shopper on Jul 4, 2019
  Thanks for your inquiry! Keeping them on your head during activity like sit-ups or running will depend on a variety of factors, including head size and shape. We have been very satisfied with the fit, and most of our customers find that they stay put fairly well.
Is this an updated model?
Brian G on Nov 20, 2018
  Thanks for your inquiry! Yes, this is the m3 (or mark 3), the newest version of the WH-1000 headphone from Sony, replacing the m2. It wsa initially released with a limited availability earlier this year (2018), with widespread availability coming in January of 2019. This new model offers excellent sound quality with best-in-the-industry noise cancelling according to the preliminary reviews.
