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


Sony's flagship true wireless earbuds are a true competitor to Apple's AirPods Pro. Now one year old, the WF-1000XM3 are still a force to be reckoned with.

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

No water resistance ; A bit bulky

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

Sony WF-1000XM3 review: Simply the best true wireless earbuds


Sony's latest true wireless earbuds are its best so far. The WF-1000XM3 covers all the bases with ambient sound and active noise cancellation, and that's on top of audio profiles and a custom EQ inside its headphones app. For $230, these are one hell...

More affordable than most flagship true wireless earbuds ; Excellent sound quality ; Full-featured companion app ; Great battery life

No on-board volume controls ; Slightly awkward fit and look ; Bulky charging case

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

Sony has announced the WF-1000XM3, the company’s latest true wireless earbuds. The $230 M3s launch in August and offer improved noise cancellation, better battery life, and a more stable connection.

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

Sony WF-1000XM3 Truly Wireless Review


The Sony WF-1000XM3 Truly Wireless are neutral-sounding and versatile truly wireless headphones. Their design is stylish and feels premium, but it's a bit hard t...

Decent isolation performance. Well-balanced default sound profile. 6.9-hour continuous battery life. Graphic EQ in companion app. Sturdy and high-end build quality.

Sub-par microphone noise handling capability. High wireless latency on PC and Android. No multi-device pairing. Hard to get a comfortable fit due to large tips. Closed-off soundstage.

The Sony WF-1000XM3 are satisfactory for neutral sound. They have a well-balanced sound profile with a touch of boom, which fans of EDM and hip-hop may enjoy. However, they're missing a bit of low-bass, so mixes lack some thump and rumble. Also, they...

Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Review


The Sony WH-1000XM3 are versatile, feature-packed Bluetooth-enabled over-ear headphones. They have an excellent battery life, a great wireless range, and a remar...

Exceptional noise cancellation. Good battery life. Deliver audio consistently. Comfortable fit. Great active features and app support with graphic EQ.

Mediocre microphone recording quality. Slightly bulky design. No microphone usage on a wired connection. No multi-device pairing capability. Closed-off soundstage.

The Sony WH-1000XM3 are satisfactory for neutral listening. While their high-bass range is slightly overemphasized, yielding a slightly boomy quality to some tracks, their exceptionally well-balanced mid-range and good treble accuracy results in clear,...

Sony WF-1000XM3 review


The Sony WF-1000XM3 is a very good AirPods Pro alternative if sound and noise cancellation are your priorities.

Stellar audio performance ; Great noise cancellation ; Tons of personalization via companion app ; Excellent battery life across the board ; Luxe, sharp-looking design

Touch controls could use some work ; Poor call quality ; Loose-fitting tips

But the WF-1000XM3 has a few drawbacks that hold it back from absolute domination. It could have benefited from physical buttons (certainly a volume rocker at the top); the unreliable touch controls make call management and playback frustrating at...

Sony WF-1000XM3 review: The only true wireless earbuds you need


Sony's earbuds elevate portable noise-cancelling, making them a great alternative to their over-ear countarparts. Learn more in our Sony WF-1000XM3 review.

Sound quality ; Google Assistant integration ; Modern design ; Auto play/pause ; Adaptive sound ; Intuitive touch controls

Cost ; Large charging case ; No water-resistance

The Sony WF-1000XM3 may be costly, but the excellent ANC performance makes it easy to justify the earbuds. Sony’s tri-contact point mechanism keeps the earbuds in place without sacrificing comfort. A big drawback is the lack of high-quality codec...
