Experience the next level of silence with Sony's WH1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Over-Ear Headphones. See what happens when it's just you and your music, with noise canceling that cuts more outside sound than ever before. Experience how smart headphones can be with advanced noise-canceling technology such as Adaptive Sound Control, and the convenience of smart features including Quick Attention, Voice Assistant compatibility and touch control.

Key Features

  • Wear all day in total comfort: Super soft, pressure-relieving earpads in foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and increase ear pad contact for a stable fit. Comfort is further enhanced by a larger and deeper ergonomic ear space structure. And with a lighter weight design, your music is the only thing you’ll notice all day.
  • Smarter than your average headphones: Everything is at your fingertips. Answer hands-free phone calls with a double tap - or change tracks, adjust the volume and make calls by touching or swiping the panel. And help from your phone’s voice assistant is just one long press away.
  • Lose yourself in silence: Escape the sounds of the city with industry-leading noise cancellation. The noise-canceling technology in the WH-1000XM3 headphones is Sony's most advanced ever with close-fitting ear pads and their HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1.
  • More power: With Sony's new HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1, noise-canceling power is greatly enhanced. Having a dedicated NC processor also ensures the reproduction of your music is never compromised due to processor performance.
  • All day power & quick charging: With a huge 30 hours of battery life, you’ll have enough power for even long trips away. And if you need to charge in a hurry, you can get 5 hours’ worth of charge after just 10 minutes with the optional AC adapter.

Sony WH1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Over-Ear Headphones is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound The sound quality is fantastic and can be easily adapted using the headphones app which gives you a number of options including graphic equaliser and setting the ambient sound etc. Even though they're wireless they also have a separate lead and socket so you can attach the headphones to non wireless devices. Build quality is good and there is a useful travel case for the headphones and leads to be stored in. I cannot rate the financial value of this product as they were a gift and I do not know the price but it is definitely an exceptional product which I consider myself very lucky to have.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound & noise cancelling, poor phone calls The sound quality is great, the noise cancelling is genuinely superb, and the functionality of the app and the controls is fine. But the sound quality for phone calls is terrible with Bluetooth. The other end of the call complains of lots of noise, crackling, and interrupts. That is with me in a silent room, and the phone 10cm from the headphones. It works much better with a wired connection, but I would describe the Bluetooth call quality as broken and useless. I may well return the product, and can't recommend it if you intend to use it for phone calls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wireless noise cancelling headphones - ever! These are Sony’s best wireless noise cancelling headphones. They’re packed full of features and the noise cancellation and sound quality are superb. They’re sturdy and comfortable, supported by a great app and well worth the upgrade from the 1000XM2. I’ve tried the Bowers & Wilkins PX which are quite heavy and noticeably so after a short period of time. I experienced frequent dropouts, particularly when using YouTube and support just advised me just to turn the noise cancellation down – which rather defeats the purpose of the biggest feature. They also came in a flimsy fabric pouch and not a rigid case that you would expect. Having also frequently used the Bose QC35 for some time, and then the QC35II which I promptly returned, I can safely say that the Sony 1000XM3 is pretty unbeatable in almost every way. The headband has been slightly redesigned to fit more snugly over your head and no longer gives you the Mickey Mouse look of the previous rounded headband. They fold neatly into a rigid and easy to carry case (which, oddly, has a fabric exterior as opposed to the smooth wipeable finish of the XM2 case – but that’s a minor point). The charging cable is extremely short but it’s cheap enough to pick up a longer one. The audio cable is a reasonable size and everything fits neatly together into the compact case, along with the airline adapter that comes included. The app supports the headphones really well and expands the set up options for a customised listening experience. The noise cancellation is incredible, though it’s quite eerie to stand in front of someone who is talking right at you and you can’t even hear a peep. Do be careful when out and about as I couldn’t hear a thing so I quickly turned the noise cancellation off. Yes, they really are that good. The sound quality is pretty unbeatable. Everything from Classical to Country to Bhangra sounds absolutely fantastic, whether you’re in the house, walking around outdoors or on a train. I imagine these will be just as great on a plane too. Taking calls is easy and the call quality is brilliant, just as it was on the previous version. If, like me, you’re fussy about sound quality as well as style and comfort then these headphones are well and truly unbeatable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from incredible sound I bought these headphones as an upgrade from my Grado 80SR80s, to get great sound with the convenience of wireless and the benefit of noise cancelling. They are simply awesome and the noise cancelling is excellent. Expensive kit but worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought a bubble Very comfortable headphones which I can wear for hours. Sound quality is great (though I'm no audiophile). Noise cancellation is fantastic - I can listen to music while others are watching TV, even though I don't have the volume too loud. When I'm at work having them on without music really shuts out din. Using for phoning is not so great - it seems the mic picks up too much so I would not use the for an important call or telephone conference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound and noise cancellation WH-1000XM2 were top class but the 1000XM3's are even better. Headband is more comfortable thanks to extra padding. Sound is superb - slightly better than 1000XM2's. Phone app really useful for tweaking settings. Best of all, noise cancelling is nothing short of outstanding allowing a deeply immersive experience. Swipe gesture on right headphone can be a bit hit and miss but avoids trying to manipulate buttons. Bottom line - are they worth the price? Every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony - I am back! Dear Sony, you have got me back after a 10 year defection to Apple and Bose; these headphones have me hook, line and sinker. In a word ‘outstanding ’. I forgot just how fabulous my music sounds. I actually look forward to my daily train commute to London. I am quite simply lost in another world of peace and tranquillity if I need quiet with ANC on; or enjoy alluring sounds whilst taking away the monotonous journey . For very good reason, these headphones are highly acclaimed in product reviews to be the best noise cancelling headphones on the market today. This was a considered purchase and quite frankly worth every hard earned penny. It’s not often gadgets earn a review from me, but I will make an exception here. I absolutely love this product with no concerns or reservations. If I lost them, which is unlikely, I would simply buy them again - they are that good. If you are in the market for headphones then look no further!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product. Usual Sony quality, I have auditioned several pairs of wireless headphones in the last two years, and found that these sound better than any other brand in the same price range.
