Sony WH-1000XM3 Headphones

Sony's active noise-canceling, battery-powered headphones evolve to further immerse you in your music, with an exclusive noise cancellation processor to masterfully eliminate ambient sound. 1.57" drivers with LCP diaphragms (Liquid Crystal Polymer) deliver premium sound you would expect from Sony. LDAC enables higher wireless transfer rate than traditional Bluetooth when used with LDAC-compatible phones/tablets, so you can enjoy High Resolution Audio at sound quality comparable to wired connection.

These headphones come with touch control for easy, intuitive operation—easily adjust volume, change tracks, make or take calls by tapping or swiping on the earcup panel with your fingertip. You can also place your hand over earcup to mute music when someone is talking to you. Plus, its built-in battery offers up to 30 hours of music enjoyment. When it's done, fold earcups inward and pack them in the included case for safe, compact storage.

Good Shipping - but International Version 8/5/2020 8:23:32 AM

Pros: They sound and feel great.

Cons: They are the international version. On Newegg retailer pocket-gear, it say nothing about being the international version, which does not have the 12-month warranty.

Overall Review: I would recommend making sure it is the US version if you want the warranty.

Great product... but uncomfortable and causes headaches 8/5/2020 6:32:29 AM

Pros: Great sound. My fiancé is a sound designer and loved the 360 sound. He was able to find sounds in some of his favorite songs that other headphones couldn’t pick up. You can really tell the extent of what sound designers do in songs and audio with these headphones.

Cons: The actual design of the headphones could be improved. After wearing these for about a half hour, I start to feel pain where the headphones rest. I’ve tried switching the position of the headphones and where they rest on my head, adjusting them, etc. Some people on forums and reddit say that there is an adjustment period, that the headaches eventually go away... but after 3 months of using these headphones on a daily basis, I still get the headaches. I am currently using a microfiber towel folded up under the band for padding, but for headphones that cost this much, I shouldn’t have to do that.
They also made my ears get hot because heat gets trapped in the ear pads.

Overall Review: It’s a great product in terms of sound, but the design is uncomfortable, and for me, it never got better over time. I’m conflicted as to whether or not I would recommend these to a friend because the sound is great, but for the price of these, they are very uncomfortable.

Sound and ANC was incredible, but it was just not comfortable. 7/3/2020 7:49:56 PM

Pros: - The Sound and Noise Cancelling were dang incredible, and the battery life is unbelievable
- The app is intuitive and allows you to tweak settings very well
- The Sound Quality and Noise canceling is simply stunning, and overall is an incredible pair of headphones.

Cons: - The ear cups, while soft, are simply not deep enough to be super comfortable (for me), however, they are spacious.
- The ear cups are also too small in circumference to fully encompass my ear 100% of the time. Sometimes, the top of my ear gets pinched and hurts.

Overall Review: If you have small ears, you'll love it. Its ANC and Sound Quality is simply stunning, however, sometimes it can be a bit uncomfortable.

Could be great, but internal software is really bad. 6/17/2020 8:44:05 AM

Pros: - The headphones themselves are really nice, they fit well, they sound good and are made quite well.
- The battery seems to last quite a while.
- The ambient sound setting is really cool. I love being able to hear my own background noise so that I know when I'm causing a disturbance on company phone calls etc.

Cons: The software on these headphones and the app that it comes with are super annoying. I work with my headphones all day every work day so here's all the issues I have run into so far.

- The headphones interfere with Spotify on my Mac somehow, causing it to say "cannot play current song" until I do a power cycle on the headphones. This only happens with these headphones.
- Doing a power cycle is very annoying because you have to hold down the power for 3 seconds and then a voice says power off about 2 seconds later THEN you can power them back on after holding power for another 3 seconds.
- Powering the headphones on and off is annoying for the reason I just explained.
- The headphones can be configured using the phone app. However, I wanted to disable the voice feedback when switching audio modes (noise cancelling, ambient, none) and it's very stupid because when the voice is enabled it completely shuts off the audio while the woman tells you what mode you are in. So if you are on a call, you will miss about 3 seconds of your call if you switch audio mode.
- When you disable voice feedback, there is no longer any way to know the charge of the headphones. It disables the voice feedback for that too, and there is literally no other way to know how much charge you have. Bad design in my opinion for the app and the hardware.
- When the headphones are powered on they start at very low volume and you have to swipe up on the righ ear cup to bring the volume up to normal volume. This is an internal volume setting, it does not correlate with your volume on your Mac or phone etc.

Overall Review: Overall, I don't like these headphones and will have to try and sell them since I'm just now realizing I don't like them and past the point of being able to return them. I will probably stay away from feature-rich headphones from now on since all I really want is something that works. I really originally wanted these for the ambient sound mode on them which is really cool.

Amazing headphones 6/1/2020 11:14:53 AM

Pros: Battery life, noise cancelling, sound quality, seamless setup

Overall Review: These headphones are amazing! In working from home I basically use them all day every day. The charging is fast for how long they last (like 3 hour charge for somewhere around 30 hours listening)
The app is simple but it offers additional setup that is handy, like setting up locations where you want certain levels of noise cancelling. There’s a setting to change the level of noise let in based on detected actions, so say if you’re sitting or not moving much they will be cancelling noise to the best of their ability, but if you’re running with them it can detect that and let in more noise around you, letting you head a car that’s approaching (or other noises that should be heard).
I have an iPhone, the setup is simple and the connection when you turn them on is just as fast as my AirPods.

So far I have no complaints. Worth the money I paid for them, no doubt.

Great product - loosy 2 devices support 6/1/2020 10:52:40 AM

Pros: Really great product, love the features, noise canceling is good and I really appreciate to hear ambient sounds when needed.

Cons: The only thing I miss is switching between 2 devices. Having to turn it off and re-pair is extremely annoying and a waste of time.

Overall Review: Good device, I'd recommend it.
I would put 5 stars when software supports easy switch between 2 devices.
