Listen with next-level silence with Sony’s signature Noise Cancellation technology. Sony WH-1000XM3 benefits from a newly developed HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1, which roughly quadruples the performance of the previous processor.

This newly-developed component not only negates transport noise like its predecessor, but also further cancels out daily background sounds such as street noise and human voices. It also features Dual Noise Sensor technology that captures ambient noise with dual microphones and then passes the sound data to the processor to cancel the noise.

This pair of headphones is made to fly, as its Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing feature allows the Noise Cancelling performance to adapt specifically to high altitude by using sensors to detect the air pressure around you. That way, the Noise Cancelling is optimized accordingly.

Premium, superior sound

Designed for the professional who frequently travels, these headphones deliver exquisite High-Resolution Audio with a 40mm driver unit with a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm that handles heavy beats and reproduces a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz. This enables you to enjoy listening to your music exactly how the artist intended, whether it’s a up-and-coming Philpop song entry or a Top 100 hit.

The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 works not only for Noise Cancelling, but also realizes stunning high sound quality with 32-bit Audio Signal Processing and the combination of DAC with Amplifier functionality. This offers exceptionally high sound quality, best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio, and low distortion for portable devices.

Smart listening

With three auto mode-changes for the Sony WH-1000XM3, you can hear all ambient sounds together with music when walking, hear announcements as well as your music when waiting, and be immersed in music with Noise Cancellation when travelling by train or bus.

This smart listening experience is enabled by the SENSE ENGINE™. Also, you can customize to your preferences with the Sony Headphones Connect app.

Customize your sound

Quick Attention Mode lets you hear what’s going on around you without taking your headphones off. Place your right hand over the right housing to decrease music volume instantly, which allows you to quickly respond to those around you. For example, when flying, you can order your drink without taking your headphones off.

There are other ways to control the sound too. Swipe the touchpad on the right housing to turn the volume up/down or to change track.

Another improvement is the Customizable Automatic Power Off function on the companion Headphones Connect app, which means the headphones can stay on and in Noise Cancellation mode without being connected to a device. This is perfect if you want noise reduction without listening to music. For example, you can rest peacefully while on a long-haul flight.

Easy, practical, comfortable

Sony WH-1000XM3 has a new, slimmer silhouette and is more lightweight than its predecessor. It’s extremely comfortable to wear, thanks to a deeper earcup and a thicker headband cushion. It just feels good while looking good at the same time!

The pair also comes with a stylish fabric case that will satisfy the fashion-conscious, as well as new and eye-catching color options of black or platinum silver with gold highlights.

Voice calls are also made clearer, with the introduction of multiple microphones, ideal for hands-free conversations.
