Sony WF-1000XM3 review: Still superb, but no longer unique

 

Sony's top-of-the-line true wireless earbuds are one of the few true competitors to Apple's AirPods Pro. They're a brilliantly tiny alternative to the bulky over-ears that you've been bringing on business trips for decades, and a compelling reason to...

Awesome sound and call quality ; Fantastic battery life ; Great noise canceling ; Compelling app-based features ; Comfortable fit

Sony’s impressive noise-canceling wireless buds kickstart a whole new genre

Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling earbuds review

 

Sony's new $230 earbuds have one great feature that AirPods and other competitors lack.

Noise cancellation in a tiny package ; Excellent sound quality ; Classy, sleek look ; Lengthy battery life for true wireless earbuds

No sweat or water resistance ; Can only pair to one device at a time ; No wireless charging ; Can’t control volume from earbuds

The more I think about it, the M3s are such an improvement over Sony’s first true wireless earbuds that the decision to skip a model number actually seems appropriate. And if Sony can address sweat resistance and multi-device pairing for the next...

Sony WF-1000XM3 Review: Wireless Noise-Canceling Earbud Heaven

 

The Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds have some pedigree to live up to. Named - and designed, for that matter - to draw obvious connections with Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones, the promise is industry-leading active noise cancellation in a Bluetooth...

Active noise cancellation works exceptionally well ; Audio quality is great ; EQ adjustment allows for musical tweaking ; Battery life is excellent

No waterproofing ; Frequent fliers may miss a cable option ; No wireless charging ; No on-earbud volume controls

Review: Sony WF-1000XM3 true wireless noise-canceling earbuds are the new champs

 

Over the past month, I've used the Sony's poorly-named but pretty incredible WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds for gym workouts (recommended) and bike rides (at your own risk). These $228 earbuds fall between Apple's $159 AirPods and $259 PowerBeats Pro but...

Sony WF-1000XM3 review: true wireless headphones redefined with noise cancelling

 

They sound as good as Beats Powerbeats Pro but are more compact and add noise cancelling to boot

Amazingly good active noise cancelling (ANC) ; Top notch audio performance ; Handy 'Quick attention' mode

Not for workout use ; ANC more effective on the ground than on planes

Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Earbuds review

 

Top notch design, class-leading noise-cancelling and a decent battery life make Sony's second-gen WF-1000XM3 the true wireless earbuds to beat.

Efficient noise-cancellation Inconspicuous looks Great fun to listen to

Struggle with in-flight noise No LDAC support Not suitable for sports

Top notch design, class-leading noise-cancelling and decent battery life make the Sony WF-1000XM3 True Wireless Headphones the earbuds to beat.

Sony WF-1000XM3

 

Sony has improved upon the original WF-1000X in just about every way, although they're not cheap, the WF-1000XM3 is the new benchmark for true wireless earbuds.

Sony WF-1000XM3 review: True wireless with stellar noise-cancelling

 

If you're looking to block out noise and don't want to ruin the fro, nothing beats Sony's true wireless earbuds, the WF-1000XM3

Superb sound quality ; Fantastic ANC performance for a set of in-ears ; Stable wireless connection

Fit might not be suitable for all activities ; Lacks a sweat or water-resistant rating ; Large-sized charging cradle

Under most circumstances I’d only dish out Expert Reviews’ Best Buy award to a faultless product. But the Sony WF-1000XM3 have industry-leading ANC performance and offer a great all-round package, so it would feel wrong to give them anything lower than...

Sony WF-1000XM3 true-wireless review: Top-notch sound with active noise cancellation

 

Yes, they're a little pricey and missing water resistance, but the WF-1000XM3 are among the best true wireless earphones of 2019.

The WF-1000XM3 sound excellent for true-wireless headphones, with a premium look and feel. They have effective active noise cancellation, decent battery life and USB-C charging (with a quick-charge feature). Touch controls.

Not sweat-resistant; not a discreet looking as some competing models; call performance could be a little better.

Despite some small drawbacks, the Sony WF-1000XM3 is among the best true wireless headphones of 2019.
