Only music. Nothing else.
Freedom perfected in a truly wireless design, with industry-leading noise-canceling powered by Sony’s proprietary HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1e. Form meets function with up to 24 total hours of battery life.
Industry-leading noise cancelation
The noise-canceling technology in the WF-1000XM3 is the most advanced ever in truly wireless headphones, with our HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1e. So you can lose yourself completely in your music.
Dual Noise Sensor Technology
Dual microphones—one feed-forward and one feed-back—on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sounds from your surroundings, whether it's in-flight noise, city traffic, or office chatter.
HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1e
Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1e gets to work. It not only cancels significantly more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power.
Exceptional sound quality
Packed with advanced audio technology, the WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling earbuds not only deliver noise-free listening but also offer breathtaking sound quality.
0.24 " driver unit
A tiny-yet-powerful 0.24 " driver unit sits inside the headphones to deliver rich, clear, expansive sound.
HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1e
The multi-talented HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1e combines Digital Noise Cancelation, 24-bit Audio Signal Processing, and a Digital-to-Analog converter with headphone amplifier. The results? Stunning sound with minimal distortion.
Upscale digital music with DSEE HX
Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files, bringing them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio.
Truly wireless technology
With Bluetooth® wireless technology and an ergonomic fit for all-day comfort, the WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones offer true wireless freedom.
Ultimate listening freedom
A new Bluetooth® chip and optimized antenna design provide a stable connection for hour upon hour of high-quality wireless streaming.
Perfect for TV shows, movies, and more
Watching video content on your smartphone or tablet? The advanced wireless connection on the WF-1000XM3 syncs what you see on screen precisely with what you hear on your headphones for more enjoyable viewing.
Optimized antenna design
The placement of the headphones' Bluetooth® antenna has been optimized to ensure a wider coverage. This helps keep the signal strong for uninterrupted streaming.
Ergonomic Tri-hold structure
The noise-canceling earbuds are ergonomically designed to make contact with three different points on your ear for a secure, comfortable fit.
High-friction rubber surface
A high-friction rubber surface keeps the noise-canceling earbuds snug and secure in your ear, so they won't slip out unexpectedly.
Everything you need
With 3 sizes of triple-comfort earbuds and 4 sizes of long hybrid silicon rubber earbuds included, you can find the perfect fit for your ears to maximize sound quality and minimize outside noise. A USB-C charging cable is also included in the box.
All-day battery life
With the WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones, the music just keeps on playing.
Clearer hands-free calling
Conversation flows freely with easy, hands-free calling. The WF-1000XM3 headphones deliver clearer voice quality and you can take calls using either, or both, of the earbuds. This allows you to alternate their recharging or hear calls clearly in noisy environments.
Powered by innovative SENSE ENGINE™ technology, WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones enhance your listening experience with a range of smart features.
Talk at a touch with Quick Attention
Placing your finger over the earbud turns the volume right down and lets in ambient sound. So you can instantly chat with someone without taking your headphones off.
Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do
The Sony | Headphones Connect app offers Adaptive Sound Control, a smart function that automatically detects what you're up to—such as traveling, walking, or waiting—then adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation. You can also customize the settings to your preferences.
Take trips without interruption and lose yourself in music with no background noise.
Be aware of everything around you, from street to office, while still enjoying music.
Hear important announcements while you wait, while reducing other background noise.
Headphones that react to you
A proximity sensor in each earbud can detect whether you're wearing one or both, and adapts playback accordingly.
Pause the music
Take out one earbud and the music automatically pauses on both sides.
Put the earbud back in and the music automatically resumes playing.
Be in control of your listening
With the Sony | Headphones Connect app, Ambient Sound Control lets you adjust the volume of background sound and gives you the option to allow voices alone to be heard. Meanwhile the Equalizer lets you customize sound levels to suit your music.
Control at your fingertips
WF-1000XM3 headphones feature intuitive touch control settings — for example, tap on the left earbud to change from Noise Canceling to Ambient Sound, or double tap on the right to skip to the next track.
Customizable touch controls
If you want to customize your touch controls, no problem. The Sony | Headphones Connect app lets you assign alternative options, such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and music volume control, to each earbud.
Modern classic style
From the headphones with their clean, minimalist look, to the charging case with its tactile, high-end finish, it's all about elegant, understated style.
Handy magnetic charging case
Put your noise-canceling headphones back into the charging case and they'll nestle into place with a satisfying snap thanks to a magnetic interior. A USB-C cable lets you recharge the case quickly and easily, ready for another day's listening.
