Sony Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones

It's a good time to be a music lover; for many years wireless headphones simply could not match the sound quality of their wired counterparts. But that is beginning to change with advances in design and Bluetooth technology. Today there are some very nice offerings in the high end consumer headphone market, and now Sony is bringing some new competition in the noise cancelling wireless headphones arena. We hope that you enjoy this Sony Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones post

For those looking for a true wireless noise cancelling earbud style headset, Sony has created the WF-1000XM3. Alternatively, if over ear cans are more your style, Sony now has the wireless noise cancelling WH-XB900N. Best Buy recently sent me both pairs of headphones to test; here are my thoughts.

Sony WF-1000XM3 In Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones

First up we are the WF-1000XM in ear noise cancelling headphones. Out of the box, the feel of the whole package is high end and polished. The buds themselves are very light; I wore these for a good 6 hours straight without any discomfort at all. That is not something I can say about most earbud designs.
Battery life of the buds themselves is about 6 hours per charge, and the case holds 3 extra charges. The headphones are controlled via touch. Each ear has a small touch pad that allows you to do things like pause music or call up the Google Assistant.

The Sony earbuds are true wireless, so there is no cord connecting the two earpieces. Additionally, the design allows you to do things like watch video without lag. The noise cancelling function uses dual sensors to listen to your surroundings; this information is fed into the HD noise-canceling QN1e processor, which is capable of  dynamically adjusting to your surroundings.

Sony calls this feature Adaptive Sound. What it means in practice is the earphones sense what you are doing and automatically adjust the noise cancelling levels. So if you go for a walk, the earphones sense it, and will allow enough outside sound into the ear to keep you aware of your surroundings.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Sony WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones. They are comfortable, the music sounds great, and the noise cancelling works as advertised. I really only had two gripes. Call quality was acceptable, but not what I would consider class leading, and you cannot control volume with touch (you have to use your phone). Given the level of build and performance in every other area though, these problems are more minor annoyances than deal killers.

  13. Lisa Rios

    Noise cancelling headphones are THE BEST. That way I can tune out everyone and everything lol

  14. I think I would like the Sony ones. I have always preferred headphones that actually fit on my head. I like that both are noise-canceling, but I might have to check out the headphones. Thanks for sharing!

  15. These noise cancelling headphones look so good! I love this brand Sony, definitely going to check these out 😍☺

  16. Amber

    These look awesome! I need to check these out. 

  17. Kristine Nicole Alessandra

    I am going to get that over the ear noise cancelling headphones for myself! I have been looking for a good one to buy and I found it!

  18. Oooh! I am totally in the market for new headphones and the SONY WF-1000XM3 in the ear look like the ones for me. On flights, I’m always trying to fall asleep with my over the ear headphones and they are just really uncomfortable,. So it’s time for a new pair.

    • Do it. I’ve tried (and have) the competition around the same price point, and the WF-1000XM3’s are the winner in my book. Sennheiser offers a slightly better sound quality, but you lose the noise cancelling and have to deal with one really annoying battery. The Klipsch T5’s look good, but they don’t quite match the sound quality or noise cancelling of other offerings. The ONE big caveat with the Sony buds is this…they are NOT water resistant, so no good for the gym (but that is why Jaybird exists).

  19. These ar4e seriously nice headphones and they look so sleek, too!

  20. We love Sony products and these headphone look great! We love that they are wireless too!

  21. They sound like some really great options! Although I don’t use many headphone sets, I think I would prefer the in-ear version, mostly because of the size and adaptability. Great review!

    There hasn’t been a Christmas since my boys have been grown that I haven’t had a package with headphones under the tree for one of them. Both are seen wearing them often. I do appreciate Sony quality.

  25. How nnniiiccceeeeee of you, Sony! I would love to use the ear-buds, too. They look so good.

  26. Jojo Reyes Jr

    Thanks for sharing this. This reminds me that I need to buy a new NCWH cause I bought one and kept it and later found out it’s not working and I couldn’t return it back as the return warranty had expired.

  27. These would be perfect for when I am at the gym. That way I can tune out the noise of the treadmills.
