Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones review: Goodbye, Bose

 

Sony's WH-1000XM3 aren't just a great pair of noise canceling headphones, they're quality cans period. While you used to have to choose between great sound quality and decent noise reduction, the 1000XM3 do both while being a blast to listen to.

Excellent sound quality and comfort ; Noise canceling is best in class ; Generous battery life

A premium price Google Assistant isn’t very useful ; Touch controls are still finicky

Sony WH-1000XM3

 

Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones feature some of the best audio performance we've heard paired from a pair that also boasts excellent noise cancellation.

Excellent audio performance with superb bass depth and high-frequency clarity. High-quality noise cancellation. App includes adjustable EQ and ANC controls. Plush, comfortable fit.

Expensive. ANC affects sound signature slightly. Cable lacks inline remote.

To reiterate, Bose still offers the best overall noise cancellation on the market. But Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones are a very close second in the ANC performance department, and they offer a better audio experience. For plenty of users, this will sway...

Sony 1000X M3 review: supreme noise canceling headphones

 

Sony seizes the title for best noise-canceling cans with a winning redesign

Extraordinary noise canceling ; Pillowy comfort ; USB-C charging and stupendous battery life ; Best sound from Sony’s 1000X yet

Touch controls are still a pain ; Bass response could be cleaner and more defined ; Pads get sweaty on warm days ; Irritating blinking LED status light on left ear cup

Even as Sony ascends to the throne of the undisputed noise-canceling champion, compelling rivals are already in the works. The title of best pair of headphones in this class seems to be changing hands every few months, which is a function of the...

Longer charge cable. 9-inches? Are you kidding?! ; Would be perfect if touch sensitive controls worked in wired mode too.

The Sony WH-1000XM3 are, without a doubt, some of the best wireless headphones that I have heard to date.

Sony WH-1000XM3 Review: King of noise-canceling headphones

 

Sony may not have intended the coppery highlights on its new WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones as a nod to the old adage that "silence is golden," but faced with a crying baby and a ten hour flight they proved themselves worth their weight in the...

Noise cancelation is incredibly good ; Comfort levels allow for hours of use ; Huge battery life and fast USB-C charging ; Sony has fixed most Mark 2 frustrations

Status LED is frustrating ; Multipoint Bluetooth could be more elegant ; No on-ear sensor

Sony WH-1000XM3 wireless headphones review: The epitome of effective active noise cancellation

 

Sony's third-generation noise cancelling headphones surpass Bose's QuietComfort 35 II in every way.

Very comfortable and sleek design ; Excellent audio quality when powered ; Industry-leading active noise cancellation ; Easy to use app and gesture controls ; Solid battery life and quick-charge capability

Audio quality is only average when the headphones are not powered ; Minor learning curve required to master gesture controls ; Very slight high-frequency distortion when the volume is cranked

As it stands, I recommend the WH-1000XM3’s to anyone looking for premium noise-cancelling headphones. These are not only an improvement over last year’s already great cans, they’re better than the previous gold standard: the Bose QuietComfort 35 II....
