SONY WH-1000XM3 NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES

Given the Sony WH-1000XM3 are among the best wireless headphones.It’s hard to imagine Sony did not have any premium pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones until 2016.

A Year later Sony brought with it a second-generation model, the WH-1000XM2s.But increased competition, notably from the Bowers & Wilkins PX, meant it didn’t pick up an Award. 

But even when that second-generation model was released in the international market  their successor was already in development.The lengthy period of the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones is the result of a move to analogue amplification.According to Sony resulting in a significantly improved audio performance over their predecessors.

Sound

The Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones offer a clear sonic upgrade over the preceding pair. This is an open, spacious sound. The instruments around them are delivered in a way like that makes it feel as if you’re in the room with the band.

There’s a generous extra helping of deep bass, which helps the WH-1000XM3s produce a satisfying rendition of SBTRKT’s throbbing Trials Of The Past.But this extra bass never threatens to unbalance the presentation.

Noise cancelling

There’s nothing to complain about here. The clarity offered means that a recording’s sonic flaws can become exposed, but that’s rarely the Sonys’ fault.Sony has further improved its noise-cancelling technology, which was already superior to the majority of rivals when the M2s launched.

Sony says it has been improved right across the frequency range.They are markedly better at blocking out the general hubbub of a busy office, which is one of the trickiest feats to pull off. Constant, consistent sounds, such as a plane’s engine, are the bread and butter of a pair of noise-cancellers, and the M3s are an improvement here, too.In short, these Sony’s block out more of the outside world than any rival, and replace that noise with some of the best audio quality available at this price.
