Industry-Leading Digital Noise Cancellation

Industry-leading noise cancellation technology means you hear every word, note, and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. Additional microphones also assist in isolating sound while talking on the phone, resulting in improved phone call quality. 

Proprietary Technology for Premium Sound

Sony’s proprietary HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1 brings the WH-1000XM3 to the pinnacle of noise cancellation. With 32bit audio signal processing and best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio, the WH-1000XM3 headphones dramatically improve the sound quality of whatever you choose to listen to.

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. Up to 30 hours of battery life on a single charge keeps you listening instead of charging. Low on battery? No problem – 10 minutes of charge time gives you an amazing 5 hours of playback. 

Smart Listening by SENSE ENGINE Tailors the Sound to You

Smart Listening by Adaptive Sound Control automatically detects your activity, whether you’re travelling in an airport, walking on a crowded street, or sitting in a quiet area — balances the noise-canceling levels. 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

Touch ControlChange the track, turn the volume up or down, activate your phone’s voice assistant, and take or make calls by tapping or swiping the panel with your fingertip. 

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. 

Voice Activation Function (Google Assistant)

“Sony | Headphones Connect” App for Android /iOS

Swivel & Folding Structure for Easy Carrying

The earcups are designed to swivel and fold neatly into the carry case along with the cable for easy storage and portability. 

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

LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth wireless audio, which allows you to enjoy your music in exceptional sound quality – close to Hi-Res Audio.

Best Headphones I've owned
I own the XM2s and I heard a lot of good things about the XM3s from the fit to the better NC. I also loved that they are USC-c which means one less charging cable I need to carry. I tried these out and they sound as good as the previous model but have a better NC. Not a huge difference but enough to notice it. The fit took a while to get used to as they are shaped a bit different than the old models. But after a while they were all good. I will def be staying in the Sony family when it comes to NC headphones for a while. Not just for the good sound, but also features like 20 hours battery life, quick charge, and the touch controls.

Best Sound Period
Greatest sound, EXCELLENT noise canceling. The only con is figuring out which tap, touch is your volume, last track, next track control.

the headphones app on iOS helps you finetune your headphones.
I ended up turning off the adaptive sound control because too much sound was being let in. It was probably for safety reasons but hearing traffic and people talk every time you stepped outside THROUGH the headphones was a bit much for me.

Love that they are collapsible and form to your head.

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.
