I just ordered these then realised they're no the WF1000XM3 model. D'oh!
I have these and do love them. I use them for short periods (during breaks at work) most days.

They do sound great. As far as I can ascertain the new M3 version and these both support the same codecs, just SBC and AAC (disappointingly), but the M3s do (again, from what I can tell) still seem to still sound noticeably better (as well as the enhancements to noise cancellation).

This version sounds absolutely fine to me, and I would have no desire to update for sound quality reasons BUT the things that I find weak in this version are the Bluetooth connection (much improved from when I originally got them, but dropouts are still too frequent) and battery life.

My usage pattern suits the short battery life fine (but this is likely to be a bigger problem for many people), and whilst the dropouts are annoying, they aren't THAT annoying, so thus far I have resisted the (very strong) temptation to update to the M3s.

If I was buying from scratch now (and knowing what I know), I would definitely skip these and just stump up the extra for the M3s.

And that's what I recommend others do.

Very well said.

I actually had a good experience using these with a Samsung and Nokia phones. As soon I connected them to my Sony XZ1 and now my Xperia 1, I get constant dropouts.

Voted hot because of the price but could be worth it to keep saving and put a bit more money in to get the M3.

Good find none the less.

3 hours is a bit less isn't it? compared to other brands nowadays.
I own these. Sound good but battery was only around 2 hours on full volume, which isn't that loud. The new version is nearer 4 once the high quality sound is enabled.
I bought these when new. I would avoid them to be honest. Calls only come through one ear. Kept dropping out. I used them about 4 times and stopped using them. For a few quid more get the latest ones
I paid £74 for these in October 2018 so this is not a hot price.

You get the full 3 hours from the battery if you use them with a Sony mobile.

These are backups when I can't be bothered to carry my full size Sony NC headphones. I got dropout on them until I update the via the Sony app. Rarely have issues with them now.

I would do as others have said and get the new version.

Sony WF-1000XM3

These are the ones. I have a pair and the battery life is second to none. I don't have to charge the case for over a week and that is after a few hours a day play. They are quite cool in the noise cancelling. They fire noise into your ear depending on the level of noise around you. Plus the audio enhancement thing is like having super hearing when you touch left or right. You now have alexa control from a recent firmware upgrade so they are expensive but I got mine as a freebie with the sony phone. You are asked not to ebay them when you go to redeem them. I suspect something is wrong with these to want to sell them for so little. ~ 3 months old tech.

I own these two and can only agree with you.
Bluetooth dropouts and battery life is a tad bit annoying,but since I only use these for short periods (commutes etc) it doesn't bother me too much.
I would most definitely save up for the m3s as well, since there noise cancelling is like no other

I went from a Samsung s7 where I got constant drop outs which could be rectified simply by turning off the noise cancelling which stopped the dropouts. I now have a huawei mate 20 Pro and don't get any drop outs at all with noise cancelling on or off.

I think they sound great for what I paid, 59 quid from amazon warehouse but the battery life is terrible and seems to lose a lot of charge when not in use.

I don't think I would pay 90 for them with other options now available nearly a year on from when I bought them for much less than this. Although they were supposed to be refurns they were brand new in the box.
I’ve got these Sony’sand they sound good but battery life is terrible and they keep dropping out on one side so they’re pretty much useless. A few weeks ago I got the 1More wireless buds for £39 from HMV and so far they’re good - they sound fantastic & last for a few hours, highly recommended if you can get them for that price.

Expensive
I have these, sound quality is great, don't drop out connection much, but I have never got more than 2.5 hours listening time out of them, which is too annoying. Have since bought Cambridge Audio Melomania (£100 from Amazon or Richer Sounds), which last about 8 hours befor recharging.

The reason they don't want you to eBay a pricey freebie is because it drives down Sony's sales at full price, not because there's anything wrong with them. The reviews of the XM3 is fantastic, but goes for this, the original model.

Active Noise Cancellation isn't really a necessity with in-ears, I suspect most folk would be better off with the Cambridge Audio Melomania at £99 or thereabouts. Much simpler fit too, especially for those of us with odd-shaped ears.

I had the Sony 1000xm3 over ears and the Sony wf 1000 earbuds and the Apple AirPods pro and in terms of noise cancelling obviously the best was the xm3 over ear but they are big. The Sony wf1000 noise cancelling and sound quality was good but a bit bulky and not comfortable enough wearing them longer so that leaves you only with the Apple AirPods pro which had okish noise cancelling and sound quality but are very comfortable and also more expensive than the Sony wf1000.

But in the end I still decided to spend the extra and go for Apple because if you wear them a lot these are by far the most comfortable ones
Wow, great deal. Wished I'd seen this before I had bought my Melomania 1's. Wouldve given me something to think about.
Got my first pair of fake AirPods pros delivered today
