Is wearing comfort very important to you? Choose the Sony WH-1000XM3 headset.
With the fully wireless design of the Sony WH-1000XM3, you can listen to music without cables. The earbuds have noise canceling, so distracting ambient sounds are muted. With the noise canceling turned on, the battery lasts 6 hours. Does the battery run out on the go? You can use the earbuds for another 1.5 hours after 10 minutes of charging. If you want to establish a Bluetooth connection quickly, you use NFC. Hold the NFC point of the charging case against the NFC point of your phone and you can stream music in just a few seconds. Foam earbuds are included by default. These improve the wearing comfort.
The Sony WH-1000XM3 includes many accessories that increase the wearing comfort. The silicone earbuds are fairly large, so they're less comfortable. Foam earbuds are included by default, which are more comfortable. The design is fairly bulky, which makes them heavier. This can decrease the wearing comfort. Check out the video included in the photos at the top of the page to see how you should put the earbuds in your ears.
The earbuds have noise canceling. That means the ambient noise is muted when you listen to music. Noise canceling earbuds mute ambient noise less well than noise canceling headphones. If noise canceling is important to you, choose noise canceling headphones.
You can make hands-free calls thanks to the built-in microphone. Keep in mind that the quality of the microphone on your phone is better than that of the earbuds. When you use these earbuds to make calls, you won't be clearly audible.
The bass on these earbuds is clearly present and the mid-range tones are clear and detailed. It's possible that the bass doesn't reach its full potential due to the size of the included earbuds. When you download the Sony Headphones Connect app, you can adjust the sound to your liking via an equalizer.
The completely wireless design ensures that you aren't bothered by a wire. This is ideal, but the earbuds aren't water-resistant. That means there is a risk of water damage caused by rain or sweat. This makes the earbuds less suitable for exercising.
In addition to changing the sound in the Sony Headphones Connect app, you can also change the controls. You determine how you operate the music via the touch controls on the earbuds.
Note: we recommend always keeping the earbuds up-to-date with the latest software via the Sony Headphones Connect app.
