Industry-leading Digital Noise Cancellation
Industry-leading noise cancellation technology means you hear every word, note, and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. Additional microphones also assist in isolating sound while talking on the phone, resulting in improved phone call quality.
Proprietary technology for premium sound
Sony’s proprietary HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1 brings the WH-1000XM3 to the pinnacle of noise cancellation. With 32bit audio signal processing and best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio, the WH-1000XM3 headphones dramatically improve the sound quality of whatever you choose to listen to.
Smart Listening by SENSE ENGINE™ tailors the sound to you
Smart Listening by Adaptive Sound Control automatically detects your activity, whether you’re travelling in an airport, walking on a crowded street, or sitting in a quiet area — balances the noise canceling levels. Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing keeps your music sounding great even when traveling at higher altitudes. You can customize them to your preferences with the Sony I Headphones Connect App.
All-day comfort at its best. The WH-1000XM3 features an ergonomic redesign of the headband and earcups for a slimmer, more comfortable profile, while reducing the pressure on the ears and the overall weight of the headphones.
Clear hands-free calling
The WH-1000XM3 has additional microphones to designate different kinds of exterior sounds. This allows for a microphone dedicated to voice input, making phone conversations even more clear than before.

Swivel & folding structure for easy carrying
The earcups are designed to swivel and fold neatly into the carry case along with the cable for easy storage and portability.
Wireless freedom with Bluetooth® and NFC
Bluetooth® and NFC pairing make for hassle-free wireless connections to stream high-quality music and phone calls.
Noise cancellation personalized
Unique Personal Optimizing analyzes the sonic characteristics caused by head size, glasses, and hair, then optimizes the sound to you.
Wireless streaming at its best
