Extra-Long Battery Life with Quick Charging

The 1000XM3 headphones are made to last all day and then some, whether you’re focused on your work or flying around the globe.

Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing keeps your music sounding great even when traveling at higher altitudes. You can customize them to your preferences with the Sony I Headphones Connect App.

Quick Attention Mode

Communicate without taking your headphones off. Place your hand over the right ear cup to turn the volume down and deactivate noise-canceling for instant conversation. 

Touch Control

Wearing Comfort

All-day comfort at its best. The WH-1000XM3 features an ergonomic redesign of the headband and earcups for a slimmer, more comfortable profile, while reducing the pressure on the ears and the overall weight of the headphones. 

Clear Hands-Free Calling

The WH-1000XM3 has additional microphones to designate different kinds of exterior sounds. This allows for a microphone dedicated to voice input, making phone conversations even more clear than before.

Wireless Freedom with Bluetooth and NFC

Bluetooth and NFC pairing make for hassle-free wireless connections to stream high-quality music and phone calls. 

Noise Cancellation Personalized

Unique Personal Optimizing analyzes the sonic characteristics caused by head size, glasses, and hair, then optimizes the sound to you. 

Wireless Streaming at its Best

Good Not Great
I bought these 3 months ago and they have already broke. Specifically, the lower left side, just above the swiveling ear piece broke and is now held together by duct tape. I am very careful with my electronics, especially those that I have paid good money for. I reserve my headphone usage to my home or while being stationary for an extended period of time. I do have other complaints as well. They are bulky, there is an audible clicking sound when adjusting, and the touchtone ear controller works sometimes and sometimes it just won't. On a positive note, the sound quality is great. I will definitely be switching back to Bose!

Loving what I'm hearing!
This was my Christmas gift to myself, and I can't believe I'm hearing things in my very favourite music that I've never heard before. Unbelievable! Also very comfortable. Still playing with the sound cancellation modes and syncing issues with my iPhone. But loving them!

Great sound and noise cancelling!
These headphones are great both from sound quality and noise cancelling perspective. Have had the Bose older equivalent model previously but NC function on the Sony is better with deeper base tones. Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is due to a glitch the other day when the NC started creating loads of crackling noise in left ear for several hrs. It went away on its own so fingers crossed it’s not a long term technical fault. All in all I would say worth the high price tag
