Sony WH-1000XM3 - Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

There are many different wireless noise cancelling headphones on the market today, some of which have great noise cancellation, some with excellent sound quality and others that are very comfortable but in our opinion only the Sony WH1000XM3's excel in all three areas. The powerful QN1 Processor features a built-in amplifier that helps to realise best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion for exceptional sound quality. Powerful 40mm drivers, with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz.

Lose yourself in silence

Escape the sounds of the city with industry-leading noise cancellation. The noise cancelling technology in the Sony WH1000XM3 headphones is their most advanced ever with close fitting ear pads and their HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1.

Wear all day in total comfort

Super soft, pressure-relieving earpads in foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and increase ear pad contact for a stable fit. Comfort is further enhanced by a larger and deeper ergonomic ear space structure. And with a lighter weight design, your music is the only thing you’ll notice all day.

All day power and quick charging

With a huge 30 hours of battery life, you’ll have enough power for even long trips away. And if you need to charge in a hurry, you can get 5 hours’ worth of charge after just 10 minutes with the optional AC adapter

Smarter than your average headphones

Everything is at your fingertips. Answer hands-free phone calls with a double tap - or change tracks, adjust the volume and make calls by touching or swiping the panel. And help from your phone’s voice assistant is just one long press away.

Block out more

Most noise cancelling headphones are designed to block out vehicle noise when travelling. The Sony WH1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones are no exception, but are also highly effective at blocking out daily noise like voices and the background sounds you might hear walking through a city.

Noise cancelling made to fly

Unique Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing delivers optimal sound at high altitude

Wireless freedom, Great Sound in silence
