”Analogue amplification has transformed the latest version of Sony’s excellent wireless noise-cancelling headphones.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year award winner.

The best made better – improved Digital Active noise cancellation

Already one of the best noise cancellation systems out there, Sony’s Digital Active system is better than ever. The new QN1 processor is more powerful than ever, meaning, if you travel by 'plane, train or coach, you’ll hear less background noise than ever. Quiet sections of music are now audible and the whole travel experience becomes more restful than ever before.

More options for noise cancellation
New settings include the ability to cancel out background noise, even without music playing – this is ideal when you’re trying to read in a busy environment. Atmospheric Pressure Optimiser adjusts the frequency response and microphone sensitivity for the best sound when in flight. Use the Sony Headphones Connect app and get even more control over your sound.

Now with the purity of analogue sound
Moving from a digital amp to analogue one has given these award-winning headphones an even purer and more involving sound quality. Whatever the genre of music you listen to, it will simply sound more ‘real’ now there’s an analogue amplifier in charge of pumping out the sound.

Improved wireless Bluetooth connection with NFC
Featuring Bluetooth v4.2 connectivity to your smartphone, tablet or laptop, wireless sound is better than ever from these headphones. For a speedy connection with your smartphone, the WH-1000XM3 also features NFC (Near Field Communication). Simply tap the NFC-equipped phone against the headphones and it's paired and ready to go. If you prefer, a wired connection is also included.

The highest quality wireless sound
Using the LDAC wireless audio system means these headphones are able to receive around three times more detail than ordinary Bluetooth headphones. With an improved frequency response, you’ll hear more of the music, with the quietest details easy to hear.

Plug in the cable and experience Hi-Res sound
With Hi-Res music files now more popular than ever, only Hi-Res headphones will make the most of this expansive-sounding format. Plug in the supplied cable and these Sony headphones become Hi-Res compatible. With a frequency response of 4 - 40,000kHz, the Sony's easily cover a huge frequency response. From the deepest rumbling of sub-bass to subtle harmonics that affect the way we hear top-end notes, the Sony has it covered.

Sound precision with DSEE and LCP drivers
DSEE HX upsamples compressed music files, giving them a fuller, richer sound. Using 40mm drivers with LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) diaphragms, these Sony headphones are quick to react to the most dynamic music.

Now with Amazon Alexa and Google voice assistants
Using the built-in microphone, the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones are compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google’s voice Assistant. Simply press and hold the noise cancelling button and ask your PA a question. The touch sensitive pad also lets you communicate more easily – simply hold the pad to instantly turn down the volume with Quick Attention. For previous versions (prior to 4.1.1.) full instructions on how to update can be found here.

Quicker to charge and 30 hours battery life
The XM3 version is even quicker to charge than before. Use the optional AC adaptor and just 10 minutes of charging is enough for 5 hours playback – perfect for when you’re in a hurry. Once fully charged up (in around 3 hours), these headphones give up to 30 hours of playback – easily enough for a week’s worth of commuting.

Lighter and more comfortable than before
Compared to the previous version, the WH1000XM3’s weigh 20g less. Combine this with the thicker and softer foam used and you’ve got even greater comfort than before. Subtle changes to the style makes them look more attractive, too.

Made for music on the move
Supplied with a premium travel case, the foldable WH-1000XM3 headphones make the perfect travel partner. An aeroplane adapter plug is also supplied – letting you make the most of the noise cancellation ability and enjoy your music with far less disturbance.

Travel with the best, pack the Sony WH-1000XM3.

Paid over £300+ for these about 6 months ago. Cracking headphones.

Advantages:

* Great sound quality, deep bass
* Very comfortable
* 3.5mm jack if you wish to use it with your computer etc.
* Noise cancelling is great and works even with the 3.5mm jack (3.5mm jack doesn't need battery power if you run out though). I live 3 floors above a pub and on Saturday nights they have live bands on and karaoke etc. I can't hear a thing with these on! Works really well on planes & flying too
* Well-made carrying case
* Bluetooth connection fast + reliable (I use an iPhone, haven't used NFC)
* App is decent
* USB-C

Downsides

* Can't be charged when turned on.
* Can still hear voices/announcements etc. when on public transport if nothing is playing. With music on can't hear anything though.
* Sound quality isn't as good when noise cancelling is on, gets a wee bit distorted in the bass department (not a load but noticeable). Noise cancelling also really doesn't like you walking and you can hear wind sounds and the like so you'd want to turn it off.
* App seems to want you to do a firmware upgrade but I hear the firmware is a bit dodgy. Doesn't force you to do it though and folk have ways of rolling it back if you're technically able.

Price is a steal mind you. Even cheaper here: hotukdeals.com/dea…498

Update: I managed to get John Lewis to price match this, with their 2-year warranty. I explained in the claim that the code is generic and can be used by anyone (they don't price match customer-specific promo codes).

I'd say no, but I'm easily irritated lol. They are great headphones though.

Yes definitely. I wear mine for long periods no problem
What warranty do RS do on headphones?
Can this code be used in their high street stores?

They told me that if the code works online, they will match it in the store. Better to show them on your phone.

Only standard one-year manufacturer unfortunately.

Cold.

£198 from Eglobal.
Just bought for 249 in 5 installment 2 days ago, shall I return it and get this for 20 quids :/
I just got these yesterday and for a busy office they are amazing! My first ANC headphones and the cut out the hum of office AC to almost zero and make a significant dent on voice when music is playing.
I won't be returning these and you'd have to pry them out of my cold dead hands

Any earphones would hurt after 9 hours tbh .they are good though,I wear mine for 2 hours at a time, and there quite comfy .

Girlfriend wants these to use in the gym. Is this madness?
Zaphod9901/10/2019 18:00

I would say no. They are comfortable but your ears will get too hot and sweaty. I wish a third party company would make some replacement velour (or similar) earpads. Other than that they are great.

If Amazon does not belong among 'local dealers', don't use it. Cheers.

Sony has neck-bands that could be far more suitable. WH-100XM3 are very big-yeah, madness :-)

If you don't have the noise cancelling on and you're walking, does it still block a lot of the noise out?

And in regards to the wind noise, is it only when walking, what about if you were just sitting/standing outdoors?

If you get them and they are good for 9 hours straight PLEASE let me know because I would love to cancel noise for that amount of time. I am not kidding!!
Tried the old man's new set on Sunday - ANC was so effective, I insisted on wearing them at the dinner table.

Completely missed the latest chapter in my sister's "Quest to Find A Suitable Guy via Speed-Dating and Companion Matching Services, Whilst Refusing To Consider The Fact She's a Bone Idle, Selfish Swamp-Donkey with Absolutely Nothing to Offer the Opposite Sex or the Human Gene Pool".

I've ordered a set for everyone else - worth every single penny.
Fantastic headphones, only downside really is the terrible microphone, which is why I purchased the bose qc35.
In store only?
Black only available in store now it seems, silver still going for £239 (£259-20).

Can possibly still get them for the deal price by price matching curry’s, then using the code.
Wish id waited and got the black. They were difficult to get hold of at the beginning so ended up with the grey.
