Was looking for the Sony WH-1000XM3 price is at its lowest price, suspect its coming down because of the new Bose noise cancelling coming out at the end of the month.

However, still a good price for an excellent pair of headphones

Here's the description
Introducing the Sony WH-1000XM3 premium wireless noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones, packed with intelligent technology and clever design to give you the distinct listening experience on-the-go.

Sony's pioneering noise-cancelling technology is taken to the next level in the WH 1000XM3 with the introduction of the QN1 processor. This processor boosts the range of frequencies from which noise-cancellation occurs, giving you ideal control over the sounds you block out you want to while listening to your music. It's never been easier to completely immerse yourself in sound, taking the bustle out of travel and commuting.

The battery life of the 1000XM3 is 30 hours, so you don't need to worry about constantly charging your headphones and can head out on long journeys with confidence of battery not running out. If you do run low on battery, the enhanced quick charge functionality gives you 5 hours of playback time from just 10 minutes charging - so even if you do run out, you'll have your headphones back up and running in no time.

An enhanced lightweight design features deeper and softer ear pads, making the 1000X MK3 headphones even more comfortable. They also feature a skinnier and softer headband for a more ergonomic fit, with a noticeable enhancement on the WH-1000XM2. They’re portable, flexible and foldable so easy to store and easy to adjust for your ideal fit too – they also come with a specifically designed carry case for easy and safe storage.

I’d buy them if I didn’t have the previous version. Amazing headphones.
Anybody had any problems with the touch system outdoors ?

I don't really have an issue with Beats but please explain how this is a better alternative lol, you're paying probably £100-£150 premium for the brand name, which in my opinion you don't really get with Sony. Have you tried both sets?

Richer sound, ease of connectivity with iPhone, physical buttons and street cred.

So you've tried both? Also all bluetooth devices are easy to connect, it's a touch of a button lol. I think the only street cred with Beats is that you're more likely to get robbed because people know they're expensive, I prefer something a bit more low key

I can't comment on the sound because I haven't tried both but honestly I don't imagine £250 Beats sounding better than £275 Sony headphones. The only thing I can comfortably give you there is physical buttons

Beats are compared to these.
Picked these up from Claire’s and even they sound better than the Beats. Word on the street is they won’t last very long, but longevity is overrated.

All ‘jokes’ aside, the beats are all about the image and very little about the sound. The Sonys are vastly superior, minus possibly the physical button aspect if that’s a must for you.
Silly money for headphones
Had to sell mine, as good as they were my ears got really sweaty in them and I very rarely have sweaty ears.

Closed headphones with pleather pads is a recipe for sweaty ears.

All the reviews from reputable sites put the Beats a long way behind these Sony’s and the Bose QC35 II’s. The best comment in one review was for the noise cancelling, at first they didn’t even think it was switched on it made so little difference compared to the others. As for richer sound the Beats come out behind for sound quality, not as badly as their noise cancelling but still not close to the others.

I will say I haven’t even bothered trying the Beats as they do so poorly in the reviews but also Beats have a reputation of being very overpriced for their sound quality.
How to these compare to sennheiser pxc 550? And when is the next upgrade coming from sennheiser
Got the black ones - best headphones 🎧

Not really when they're this good


Agree - I paid full price and they are just awesome.

I honestly thought these were penis shaped!
I had a pair of these shortly after launch but returned them due to popping in the earcup on the London underground. Does anyone know if these more recent pairs still have this issue?

I don't travel on the underground much so can't directly comment. I think I used them once on there and it was okay, but honestly I can't be sure. However I used to have this issue with my Bose QC25 on any mode of transport (bus, train, tube) and with the Sony's it is much, much better. There is a slight change in sound when the pressure changes but no pop.

Fantastic headphones, I'm really really pleased with mine – comfortable, excellent sound, great noice cancelling. Only couple of issues are the gestures to change volume etc. can be a bit tricky to get right, and you can only pair with one Bluetooth device at a time. Would highly recommend regardless!

I personally love the gestures! Feels much more intuitive to use than buttons to me. Also the headphones have great features such as holding the earcup to hear outside noise

Have been using the XM1 (mdr 100x). Recently bought the XM3 but have yet to open them lol
I have the XM2's and they are amazing, not sure how these can improve on those... although apparently the fit is much better
All reviews have the xm3 above other noise cancelling phones for noise cancelling and sound quality. Some have the bose qc 35 v2 as slightly more comfortable.

I've had the XM3s for a while and they're amazing, I don't know how a headphone can pop? They are essential for flights. Running the calibration will adapt it to any situation.

Beats are never part of the equation when it comes to audio fidelity and noise cancelling.

Street cred ...beats ??? OMG are you 12 by any chance I'd rather have a ten quid set of cheats by Dr Sanjay off the market and spend the rest on cider
You want sound quality you go B&O simples !!!!

These are great headphones.

And they meet my test (see posts passim) by being both wireless (and having a suitably high(er) bitrate codec support) and being LOUD... the most important thing... LOUDNESS.

Enjoy!

Who the hell is dumb enough to go out with a great big pair of earmuffs . Not only is it dangerous for safety , you look stupid with it. What’s wrong with simple ear pluggers ?
