Industry-leading noise cancellation
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.
Earbuds stay snug and secure
A high-friction rubber surface keeps the noise cancelling earbuds snug and secure in your ear so they won't slip out unexpectedly.
Quick charging when you need it
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.
Clearer hands-free calling
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.
Superior listening with a new Bluetooth chip
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.
6mm driver unit
A tiny yet powerful 6mm driver unit sits inside the headphones to deliver rich, clear, expansive sound.
Exceptional sound with minimal distortion
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.
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.
Control at your fingertips
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.
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.
Ergonomic Tri-hold structure for a secure fit
The noise cancelling earbuds are ergonomically designed to make contact with three different points on your ear for a secure, comfortable fit.
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.
Everything you need
A USB-C charging cable and two types of earbud in a range of sizes are included in the box.
Be in control of your listening
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.
Just say the word with Voice Assistant
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.
Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you doThe 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.
TravellingTake trips without interruption and lose yourself in music with no background noise.
WalkingBe aware of everything around you, from street to office, while still enjoying music.
WaitingHear important announcements while you wait, while reducing other background noise.
