Industry-leading noise cancellation2 and stunning sound in a compact, stylish, truly wireless design.
Industry-leading noise cancellation3
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.
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.
Exceptional sound quality
Packed with advanced audio technology, the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling earbuds not only deliver noise-free listening but also offer breathtaking sound quality.
6-mm driver unit
A tiny-yet-powerful 6-mm driver unit sits inside the headphones to deliver rich, clear, expansive sound.
HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e
The multi-talented HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e combines Digital Noise Cancelling, 24-bit Audio Signal Processing, and a Digital-to-Analogue converter with headphone amplifier. The result? Stunning sound with minimal distortion.
Upscale digital music with DSEE HX
Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files, bringing them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio.
Truly wireless technology
With Bluetooth® wireless technology and an ergonomic fit for all-day comfort, the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones offer true wireless freedom.
Ultimate listening freedom
A new Bluetooth® chip and optimized antenna design provide a stable connection for hour upon hour of high-quality wireless streaming.
Perfect for TV shows, movies and more
Watching video content on your smartphone or tablet? The advanced wireless connection on the WF-1000XM3 syncs what you see on screen precisely with what you hear on your headphones for more enjoyable viewing.
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.
Optimized antenna design
The placement of the headphones' Bluetooth® antenna has been optimized to ensure a wider coverage. This helps keep the signal strong for uninterrupted streaming.
Engineered for a secure, stable fit
Ergonomic Tri-hold structure
The noise cancelling earbuds are ergonomically designed to make contact with three different points on your ear for a secure, comfortable fit.
High-friction rubber surface
A high-friction rubber surface keeps the noise cancelling earbuds snug and secure in your ear, so they won't slip out unexpectedly.
All-day battery life
With the WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones, the music just keeps on playing.
Up to 24 hours of listening4
On a full charge, the headphones offer 6 hours of power and the handy charging case provides a further three charges to keep you going throughout the day. That's up to 24 hours of noise-free listening. With noise cancelling off, it's even longer — 8 hours of power on a full charge, with a further three charges from the charging case, for up to 32 hours of play time.
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.
Handy magnetic charging case
Put your noise cancelling headphones back into the charging case and they'll nestle into place with a satisfying snap thanks to a magnetic interior. A USB-C cable lets you recharge the case quickly and easily, ready for another day's listening.
Powered by innovative SENSE ENGINE™ technology, WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones enhance your listening experience with a range of smart features.
Talk at a touch with Quick Attention
Placing your finger over the earbud turns the volume right down and lets in ambient sound. So you can instantly chat with someone without taking your headphones off.
Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do
The Sony Headphones Connect app offers Adaptive Sound Control, a smart function that automatically detects what you're up to—such as travelling, walking or waiting—then adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation. You can also customize the settings to your preferences.
Take trips without interruption and lose yourself in music with no background noise.
Be aware of everything around you, from street to office, while still enjoying music.
Hear important announcements while you wait, while reducing other background noise.
Headphones that react to you
A proximity sensor in each earbud can detect whether you’re wearing one or both and adapts playback accordingly.
Pause the music
Take out one earbud and the music automatically pauses on both sides.
Put the earbud back in and the music automatically resumes playing.
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 customize 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 Assistant5, you only have to ask.
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.
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.
Customizable touch controls
If you want to customize your touch controls, no problem. The Sony Headphones Connect app lets you assign alternative options, such as Google Assistant, to each earbud.
