Put the outside world on hold – this is all about you and your music. No noise, no wires, no distractions. Just exceptional sound, industry-leading noise cancellation, and hour upon hour of pure listening freedom.
The noise cancelling technology in the WF-1000XM3 is the most advanced ever in truly wireless headphones, with our HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e. So you can lose yourself completely in your music.
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 tiny yet powerful 6mm driver unit sits inside the headphones to deliver rich, clear, expansive sound.
The multi-talented HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e combines Digital Noise Cancelling, 24bit Audio Signal Processing, and a Digital-to-Analog converter with headphone amplifier. The result? Stunning sound with minimal distortion.
Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files, bringing them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio.
With Bluetooth® wireless technology and an ergonomic fit for all-day comfort, the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones offer true wireless freedom.
A new Bluetooth® chip and optimised 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.
Rather than relaying sound from one ear to the other, the newly developed Bluetooth® chip transmits sound to the left and right ears simultaneously for an exceptional listening experience.
The placement of the headphones’ Bluetooth® antenna has been optimised to ensure a wider coverage. This helps keep the signal strong for uninterrupted streaming.
The noise cancelling earbuds are ergonomically designed to make contact with three different points on your ear for a secure, comfortable fit.
A high-friction rubber surface keeps the noise cancelling earbuds snug and secure in your ear so they won’t slip out unexpectedly.
With the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones, the music just keeps on playing.
On a full charge, the headphones offer 6 hours of power and the handy charging case provides a further 3x 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 3x 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.
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.
Powered by innovative SENSE ENGINE™ technology, WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones enhance your listening experience with a range of smart features.
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 – for example, travelling, walking, or waiting – then adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation. You can also customise the settings to your preferences.
Take trips without interruption and lose yourself in music with no background noise.
Be aware of everything around you, from street to office, while still enjoying music.
Hear important announcements while you wait, while reducing other background noise.
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 customise sound levels to suit your music.
Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders, and more. With the Google Assistant, you just have to ask.
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.
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 customise your touch controls, no problem. The Sony | Headphones Connect app lets you assign alternative options, such as Google Assistant, to each earbud.
From the headphones with their clean, minimalist look to the charging case with its tactile, high-end finish, it’s all about elegant, understated style.
