WF-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
Industry-leading noise cancellation and stunning sound in a compact, stylish, truly wireless design.
Dual microphones—one feed-forward and one feed-back—on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sounds of your surroundings, whether it’s in-flight noise, city traffic or office chatter.
Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e gets to work. It not only cancels significantly more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power.
Packed with advanced audio technology, the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling earbuds not only deliver noise-free listening but also offer breathtaking sound quality.
A new Bluetooth® chip and optimized antenna design provide a stable connection for hour upon hour of high-quality wireless streaming.
Watching video content on your smartphone or tablet? The advanced wireless connection on the WF-1000XM3 syncs what you see on screen precisely with what you hear on your headphones for more enjoyable viewing.
A Bluetooth chip, which transmits sound to left and right ears simultaneously, coupled with optimized antenna design, ensures a stable connection and outstanding listening. Low audio latency makes for enjoyable viewing too.
The placement of the headphones' Bluetooth® antenna has been optimized to ensure a wider coverage. This helps keep the signal strong for uninterrupted streaming.
With 3 sizes of triple-comfort earbuds and 4 sizes of long hybrid silicon rubber earbuds included, you can find the perfect fit for your ears to maximize sound quality and minimize outside noise. A USB-C charging cable is also included in the box.
On a full charge, the headphones offer 6 hours of power and the handy charging case provides a further three charges to keep you going throughout the day. That's up to 24 hours of noise-free listening. With noise cancelling off, it's even longer — 8 hours of power on a full charge, with a further three charges from the charging case, for up to 32 hours of play time.
Sometimes you need music, fast. So if your headphones are running low on power, a 10-minute quick charge in the charging case gives you up to 90 minutes of play time.
Conversation flows freely with easy, hands-free calling. The WF-1000XM3 headphones deliver clearer voice quality and you can take calls using either, or both, of the earbuds. This allows you to alternate their recharging or hear calls clearly in noisy environments.
Placing your finger over the earbud turns the volume right down and lets in ambient sound. So you can instantly chat with someone without taking your headphones off.
The Sony | Headphones Connect app offers Adaptive Sound Control, a smart function that automatically detects what you're up to—such as travelling, walking or waiting—then adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation. You can also customize the settings to your preferences.
A proximity sensor in each earbud can detect whether you’re wearing one or both and adapts playback accordingly.
Take out one earbud and the music automatically pauses on both sides.
Put the earbud back in and the music automatically resumes playing.
With the Sony | Headphones Connect app, Ambient Sound Control lets you adjust the volume of background sound and gives you the option to allow voices alone to be heard. Meanwhile, the Equalizer lets you customize sound levels to suit your music.
Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa and Siri
Manage your day, just by asking your favourite voice assistant. Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders and more.
WF-1000XM3 headphones feature intuitive touch control settings — for example, tap on the left earbud to change from Noise Cancelling to Ambient Sound, or double tap on the right to skip to the next track.
If you want to customize your touch controls, no problem. The Sony | Headphones Connect app lets you assign alternative options, such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and music volume control, to each earbud.
Put your noise cancelling headphones back into the charging case and they'll nestle into place with a satisfying snap thanks to a magnetic interior. A USB-C cable lets you recharge the case quickly and easily, ready for another day's listening.
The WF-1000XM3 headphones and carrying case come in a choice of colours to suit your style.
Immerse yourself in sound all around you. As real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real.
These headphones let you enjoy 360 Reality Audio.
