Experience the next level of silence
See what happens when it’s just you and your music, with noise cancelling that cuts more outside sound than ever before. And experience how smart headphones can be with advanced noise-cancelling technology such as Adaptive Sound Control, and the convenience of smart features including Quick Attention, Voice Assistant compatibility and touch control.
Lose yourself in silence
Escape the sounds of the city with industry-leading noise cancellation. The noise-cancelling technology in the WH-1000XM3 headphones is our most advanced ever with close-fitting ear pads and our HD Noise-Cancelling Processor QN1.
More power = even less noise
With our new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1, noise cancelling power is greatly enhanced. Having a dedicated NC processor also ensures the reproduction of your music is never compromised due to processor performance.
Block out more
Most noise-cancelling headphones are designed to block out vehicle noise when travelling. The WH-1000XM3 headphones are no exception, but are also highly effective at blocking out daily noise like voices and the background sounds you might hear walking through a city.
Wireless freedom, Great Sound in silence
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH® wireless audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
Sound you can believe in
A built-in amplifier integrated in HD Noise-Cancelling Processor QN1 realises the best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion for portable devices and delivers exceptional sound quality. Powerful 40-mm drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.
