- What Hi-Fi 5 Star Sony WF-1000XM3 July 2019
Sony’s WF-1000XM3 premium wireless noise cancelling earphones are packed with cutting-edge technology, feature secure, ergonomic design and a more stable Bluetooth connection. They give you remarkable audio with Adaptive Sound Control, plus hands-free calling and voice assistance. And you can enjoy it all without any wires.
Truly wireless listening
With two independent ear-buds fitting comfortably and securely in your ears, not a single wire gets in your way. Feel the inspiring freedom of truly wire-free listening.
Sony has taken the QN1 noise cancelling processor from their award winning WH-1000XM3 and updated it to the QN1e for these headphones. It boosts the noise cancellation frequency range, giving you full control over the sounds you want to block out. So it's never been easier to take the bustle out of travel and immerse yourself in sound.
Personalised noise cancellation
Adaptive Sound Control optimises listening settings automatically based on your behaviour and environment. This can be customised to suit your own preferences, using the equaliser in the Sony Headphones Connect app (available on Android and iOS).
Hands-free calling & Google Assistant
A built-in microphone means you can make and receive hands-free phone calls without having to take out your earbuds. Combining high-quality sound with the convenience of voice control, the WF-1000XM3 have Google Assistant built in. So you can play music, hear the news, control smart home devices, get answers to questions, and more, just by talking to your earbuds.
Low power consumption allows them to last for up to 8 hours on a single charge without noise cancellation, or 6 hours with it on. The included protective carry-case contains the power for an additional three charges. That’s up to 32 hours of total usage without noise cancellation, or 24 hours with noise cancellation on. And when power runs low, you can get 90 minutes of listening with just 10 minutes of charging.
The WF-1000XM3 can connect each earbud to your device individually, allowing for a more stable connection, with a faster response time. So your audio syncs perfectly with what you see on your device; ideal for watching your favourite shows on your commute. And NFC devices connect with one touch.
With a high-friction rubber surface and ergonomic tri-hold structure, these earbuds stay put wherever you go. With a wide range of different earbud sizes included, you can find the perfect fit.
Automatic pause & power
This innovative feature uses built-in proximity sensors to detect when you remove the earbuds from your ear. Taking one out pauses the music, removing both turns off the earbuds, so you’ll never miss a beat, and it saves on energy too.
If you need to quickly communicate with others whilst listening to your music, just place your finger on the left earbud to lower the volume. And you can control the track you’re listening to with a single or double tap on the right earbud.
