”Analogue amplification has transformed the latest version of Sony’s excellent wireless noise-cancelling headphones.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year award winner.

The best made better – improved Digital Active noise cancellation
Already one of the best noise cancellation systems out there, Sony’s Digital Active system is better than ever. The new QN1 processor is more powerful than ever, meaning, if you travel by ‘plane, train or coach, you’ll hear less background noise than ever. Quiet sections of music are now audible and the whole travel experience becomes more restful than ever before.

More options for noise cancellation
New settings include the ability to cancel out background noise, even without music playing – this is ideal when you’re trying to read in a busy environment. Atmospheric Pressure Optimiser adjusts the frequency response and microphone sensitivity for the best sound when in flight. Use the Sony Headphones Connect app and get even more control over your sound.

Now with the purity of analogue sound
Moving from a digital amp to analogue one has given these award-winning headphones an even purer and more involving sound quality. Whatever the genre of music you listen to, it will simply sound more ‘real’ now there’s an analogue amplifier in charge of pumping out the sound.

Improved wireless Bluetooth connection with NFC
Featuring Bluetooth v4.2 connectivity to your smartphone, tablet or laptop, wireless sound is better than ever from these headphones. For a speedy connection with your smartphone, the WH-1000XM3 also features NFC (Near Field Communication). Simply tap the NFC-equipped phone against the headphones and it’s paired and ready to go. If you prefer, a wired connection is also included.

The highest quality wireless sound
Using the LDAC wireless audio system means these headphones are able to receive around three times more detail than ordinary Bluetooth headphones. With an improved frequency response, you’ll hear more of the music, with the quietest details easy to hear.

Plug in the cable and experience Hi-Res sound
With Hi-Res music files now more popular than ever, only Hi-Res headphones will make the most of this expansive-sounding format. Plug in the supplied cable and these Sony headphones become Hi-Res compatible. With a frequency response of 4 – 40,000kHz, the Sony’s easily cover a huge frequency response. From the deepest rumbling of sub-bass to subtle harmonics that affect the way we hear top-end notes, the Sony has it covered.

Sound precision with DSEE and LCP drivers
DSEE HX upsamples compressed music files, giving them a fuller, richer sound. Using 40mm drivers with LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) diaphragms, these Sony headphones are quick to react to the most dynamic music.

Now with voice assistant
Using the built-in microphone, the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones are compatible with Google’s voice Assistant. Simply press and hold the noise cancelling button and ask your PA a question. The touch sensitive pad also lets you communicate more easily – simply hold the pad to instantly turn down the volume with Quick Attention.

Quicker to charger and 30 hours battery life
The XM3 version is even quicker to charge than before. Use the optional AC adaptor and just 10 minutes of charging is enough for 5 hours playback – perfect for when you’re in a hurry. Once fully charged up (in around 3 hours), these headphones give up to 30 hours of playback – easily enough for a week’s worth of commuting.

Lighter and more comfortable than before
Compared to the previous version, the WH1000XM3’s weight 20g less. Combine this with the ticker and softer foam used and you’ve got even greater comfort than before. Subtle changes to the style makes them look more attractive, too.

Made for music on the move
Supplied with a premium travel case, the foldable WH-1000XM3 headphones make the perfect travel partner. An aeroplane adapter plug is also supplied – letting you make the most of the noise cancellation ability and enjoy your music with far less disturbance .
