Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones are absolute top
Between 40mm Liquid Crystal Polymer drivers, the new QN1 processor promising up to four times better performance than last year’s XM2, 32-bit signal processing, intelligent noise cancelation, and an integrated DAC amplifier, the WH-1000XM3 lineup is as high-end as you can currently go in the wireless audio department. The headphones can last up to 30 hours on a single charge and offer quick charging support via a USB Type-C port, in addition to boasting atmospheric pressure optimization that frequent fliers are bound to adore.
The noise cancelation technology Sony used for its latest take on ultra-premium headphones is both more efficient and versatile than last year’s solution, with the newly unveiled headphones being capable of sending you back to the real world with a single touch of the right cup whenever you need to focus on what’s around you, whereas resuming a listening session is as convenient as touching the headset one more time.
Coupled with an Android app that’s essentially a remote controller and built-in support for Google Assistant and Siri, the WH-1000XM3 should be capable of providing a high-end entertainment experience in a wide variety of scenarios. The Sony WH-1000XM3 series is all about quality, targeting audiophiles who aren’t willing to compromise on anything and enjoy an ultra-premium listening experience while maintaining a high degree of portability and convenience.
While designed for wireless use cases, the WH-1000XM3 headphones are all about choice, so you’ll still be able to plug a 3.5mm connector into their headphone jack and have them perfectly adjusted to the shape of your head. The WH-1000XM3 are a significant step forward for Sony’s ultra-premium audio solutions in essentially every aspect – they’re lighter, more durable, better at canceling noise, deliver higher-quality audio, can operate for longer on a single charge, and recharge faster. ■
