Product Expert headphones

The Sony WH-1000XM3 wireless headphones let you enjoy 38 hours of clear and high-resolution audio. Use Bluetooth to connect the design to your smartphone or tablet. This way, you can listen to your favorite music wirelessly. If you turn on the adjustable noise canceling, you won't be disturbed by outside noise. This way, you can travel in peace or eliminate any disturbing ambient noise at the office. Turn on Smart Listening via the app. After detecting your activity, this function adjust the strength of the noise canceling. The frequency range from 4 to 40,000Hz allows you to enjoy Hi-Res audio. This means not a single detail will escape your ears, and you'll hear all nuances of the bass and treble.

Noise canceling

The Sony WH-1000XM3 has noise canceling. This technology analyzes the environment via microphones and transforms it into an anti-noise. This anti-noise ensures that you hear the original sound less well. This way, ambient noise is muted while you listen to music. These headphones not only dampen sounds like vehicles, but also voices. This way, you only hear the music and nothing else on the road and in the office.

Wireless high quality

The Sony WH-1000XM3 has the Bluetooth profiles aptX and LDAC. These 2 profiles both ensure that the wireless Bluetooth signal loses as little quality as possible. This means you don't need a cable to enjoy high quality music. You can wirelessly play hi-res audio files and hear a lot of detail in your favorite songs.

Sound according to the expert

The factory settings of these headphones ensure that you enjoy a strong bass. Thanks to an accent around 125 Hertz, the bass is very clearly audible. The medium-high tones are balanced, which means that they're no longer or less audible. As a result, the medium-high tones don't deviate from how the artist intended. You can use the equalizer when you like a different sound. This way, you adjust the sound to your own taste.

"Perfect headset, but for this price I would expect no less."

Sander Klein Breteler | 1 November 2019 | Color: Black

  • Pros:
    Excellent sound quality
  • Pros:
    Really good noice canceling
  • Pros:
    Sturdy carrying case
  • Pros:
    Long battery life
  • Pros:
    Good fit, no head squeeze
  • Con:
    Touch interface misses a tap sometimes
  • Con:
    Long press on/off button should have been a slider

The headset offers a sound quality that is just perfect and can even be tuned through the app. The noise canceling is just mind-blowing, train and bus noises disappear and voices get stripped of bass which causes them to be less distracting. The case is good and the battery lasts long.

The noise canceling does take a bit getting used to. In the beginning the bass-less sounds you still hear give you the feeling of going down a mountain where you need to adjust the pressure in your ears, but that is not the case and adjusting you ears doesn't do anything, since you are not actually going up or down. After about two weeks of use you no longer get triggered by this.

The long press to turn the device on or off is a bit too long and I would like to just have a slider instead.

Overall perfect headset.

Awesome

Munazza Yasir | 7 March 2020 | Color: Black

Great ANC headphones, particularly with LDAC and EQ tweaking

Review score 4.5 out of 5 stars
4.5 / 5 stars
8,8
  • Pros:
    Great ANC
  • Pros:
    Super fast charging
  • Pros:
    Great sound potential
  • Con:
    Can only be connected to 1 device at a time
  • Con:
    Pleather gets sweaty

Fantastic ANC bluetooth headphones with great sound potential. However, the default tuning is VERY bass heavy, to the extent that lots of clarity is lost at higher frequencies. Moreover, using the native app's equaliser will force SBC, whereas these headphones only really shine when using LDAC (therefore can't really recommend to ios users) and a properly configured EQ (system or 3rd party). Comfort is good enough, though the pleather of the pads is somewhat more platic-feeling/sweaty than others I've tried.
