Industry-leading noise cancellation1
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 Noise Sensor Technology
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.
HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e
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.
Exceptional sound quality
Packed with advanced audio technology, the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling earbuds not only deliver noise-free listening but also offer breathtaking sound quality.
Truly wireless technology
With Bluetooth® wireless technology and an ergonomic fit for all-day comfort, the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones offer true wireless freedom.
Ultimate listening freedom
A new Bluetooth® chip and optimised antenna design provide a stable connection for hour upon hour of high-quality wireless streaming.
Perfect for TV shows, movies and more
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.
Optimised antenna design
The placement of the headphones’ Bluetooth® antenna has been optimised to ensure a wider coverage. This helps keep the signal strong for uninterrupted streaming.
All-day battery life
With the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones, the music just keeps on playing.
Handy magnetic charging case
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.
Talk at a touch with Quick Attention
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.
Customisable touch controls
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.
Modern classic style
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.
