Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Regret After about a year of ownership, I hate these earbuds. The fit, connection quality, and frustrating charging case have made me seek out any other option for earbuds. If I am sitting completely still, the earbuds will still fall off after about 20 minutes of working at my computer. It makes air travel impossible because I am constantly having to take them out, adjust them in my ear, or they just fall out. I have tried the multiple bud options that come with the earbuds but none are the right fit, some don't even correctly fit onto the earbuds themselves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great full sound that’s customizable Great ear buds BUT be prepared to deal with connectivity issues with iPhones. I have ios14.3 and music/video sound cuts in and out. Much less issues working on Android phones. Waiting for either Apple or Sony to come out with a fix for the sound issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! I've had this for a month now and while these earbuds sound the best in the market by a mile, a few aspects hold it back from being perfect. The large and bulky charging case, lack of wireless charging, and asymmetrical case hold it back. However the excellent sound quality, lower current price, extra foam tips in the box that make sound isolation even better, stellar noise cancelation, and premium build mena you can't go wrong with this pair of Sony earbuds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of potential but no ultimately no bread Bought this a couple months ago, and right off the bat, I noticed some bluetooth connectivity issues. It is literally unusable in subways, cafes, or any moderately populated area. Also literally unusable with Windows 10, so if you have a Windows computer, steer clear. The bluetooth will disconnect, stutter, distort audio, and sometimes even just fail and power off. With my Mac, it is a little better, but you will experience stutters every 5 to 10 minutes. The earphones work best with my iPhone and the app is a plus, but if you decide to use any features in the app such as EQ or Noise Control, say goodbye to your battery life. Which by the way, they advertise at 8 hours per charge hahahahaha.. right. I laid in bed last night jamming some TFT on my phone, had the EQ turned off, noise cancelling off, every option off, connection stability prioritized, so basically I was trying to make sure it would last the night. Made it 4 hours before I got the low battery warning, granted this leaves me about 30 mins to 1 hour of battery, 5 hours of battery life compared to the advertised 8 hours? Supposedly 6 with noise cancelling, I get half that - 3 hours and some minutes. Some minutes because the left earphone will die 30 minutes before the right. Additionally, the charging case is supposed to hold 3 full charges; I have consistently got 2.5 or even less charges. Sometimes one earphone is fully charged and the other is dead. Don't ask me, these earphones do their own thing a lot of the times. Now onto sound quality is the only saving grace of this earphone. Noise cancelling is also pretty good, but like I mentioned before; with its subpar battery life, if you're trying to use these for flights(post-corona, stay safe ya'll), these earphones ain't it. So in conclusion. Bluetooth - 0.5/10 (it's a truly wireless earphone they say yet why do I sometimes wish these were just wired?) Battery - 0.5/10 (it's trash guys, really does not get even close to the advertised battery life) Noise-Cancelling - 3/10 (pretty good for earbuds, but it will destroy your battery life, so minus 5 points) Sound Quality - 4/10 (saving grace, using EQ is what makes it so good, but this will also destroy your battery life, so minus 5 points) Mic Quality - 0/10 (forgot about this, but literally every time I use these to answer calls or talk in zoom meetings, everyone asks me what's wrong with my mic) Total Score - 8/50 So I'll round up and give this a 1 star. Terrible experience with these earphones. If it was just one issue, I could look past it, but these earphones just suck. Especially since it has so much potential, but because of issues with bluetooth and battery life, I can not enjoy the product fully. Definitely turned me off from purchasing from Sony again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Issue after Issue I did all the research - the reviews of the Sony showed the best sound, etc. However, after owning them for two months now, I have had anything but good use with them. Constantly disconnecting after a call, horrible battery life. The battery lasts for an hour phone call, and then dies. I'm more than disappointed with my choice, as I stayed away from the airpods specifically to get the "better" product from Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound but poor earbud fit I researched bluetooth sound cancellation earbuds for 6 mths and finally settled on this. I've been using them for about a month and while I was very excited to finally get this (because of the many rave reviews about the sound quality), I was a tad disappointed with the fit and some features. First off, the earbuds don't fit my ears very well. Maybe my ear canal is smaller than average, but the smallest earbuds provided could not keep the earbuds in my ears. They kept falling off every time I stood up or walked around. What's the use of a wireless earbud if it can't stay in my ears, right? To be fair, when the earbuds did stay in, yes, the sound quality is great. Bass is rich and deep, yet the mids and treble are nice and clear, with some frequencies featuring crisp sounding vocals. The only thing I can't figure out is why there is a beep sound about a minute into wearing the earbuds, and then a switch in ambient sound. My guess is that it has something to do with the "Adaptive Sound Control" - maybe the earbuds is trying to scan the environment and put on my preset EQ / ambient sound option? But it still happened when I turned off Adaptive Sound Control, much to my annoyance, since I already set the EQ on my phone and the so-called preset still chose to override my current setting. Irritating max.

I also own a WH-1000M3 overear headphones thus the NC capability is not far off. The sound effects are very satisfying and using with sony’s app on an iphone provided an easy way to control all of the controls. Battery life is also good, and you easily top it up using the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is great but very uncomfortable after 2 hour Sound is superb although I'm yet to test the 360 Reality Audio, bass are fantastic, and I'm always turn to Excited in the equalizer section, voice are quite sharp too. but after listening to more than 2 hours, it will get extremely painful or I can say its literally hurting my ears unless I dont twist the earbuds as what sony recommended but it might fall out easily especially during chewing (eating). As for the touch sensitivities are not so great, or maybe my fingers are quite dry, therefore might need to keep pressing it for few times. and I hope Sony will allow the users to customize our own selection for the touch options. e.g Left earbuds - single tap, change sounds (ambience, ANS), double tap (Volume Up), Triple Tap (volume down), Long press - (Ambience) and as for the phone calls in, the MIC are no that loud enough and abit soft or blurred out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good ANC true wireless earbuds These are my first ANC earbuds, and they are really good. The ANC is very good despite these being such small earbuds, and the sound is excellent as well. The comfort level is also out of this world and I can barely feel them in my ears because they fit so well. My only complaint is that the connection occasionally stutters, which is slightly annoying, but still doesn't happen enough that it's a big issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ergonomic design and comfortable Excellent in sound and noise cancelling effect, 1000XM3 has it. You can do adjustments to the settings via their app to suit your need. As a heavy public transport commuter, the battery life can even last me for 5 days, which is quite impressive. Minor issue is this is not waterproof and you won't be able to block out bits of noises when commuting in train. Otherwise, totally worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this month and was very impressed with the sound quality and charging process. I also like the ambient noise removal and addition but I normally struggle to understand when the ambient sound is off or is it on. Not every touch on left earpiece indicates that ambient sound id off or on. Is there a coaching video or can Sony train the sales people for usage demonstrations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this pair of earbuds ! I've been using my WF-1000XM3s for 2 weeks. Great ANC, great sound quality. But I do have some feedback to make it better: - Sound level is a little low. - You can't assign Google Assistant and Noise-Canceling functions at the same time, which is annoying. The empty slot (double-tap in the noise-canceling set) may be utilized. - In Play Control function set, (right ear by default) there is an assistant function, that is by holding down. But this function is fairly slow compared to its counterpart in Google Assistant function set. This could be fixed by software I guess. - Instant attention function is a bit delayed. It is an awesome facility but should be improved. - In "single bud" mode, the sound could be mono-ed. Thank you for this top tier product. It earns its price tag !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive sound - the rest, not so good Had mine for over a year. Great sound but that’s where it stops. Issues with fit. Won’t stay in, regardless of variety of fittings supplied. Blue tooth is touchy. Paired with iPhone and iPad. IPad stopped pairing. Have to reset unit to re-pair. Use before sleep? When taken out must scramble in dark to find case. Take out and set aside? No. Lights flash like crazy and unit discharges. You would think by 2020 engineers would be able to design something much better, especially from Sony. Pass.

No issues at all i lasted the full 6 hour battery life once without a single discomfort. And the audio is the best I've heard in a while. And as well as noise cancelling its the best on market. I'd pay 2 times the price for this good of an experience and I dont even like Sony! These are way better than my airpods pro's and alot alot better than my galaxy buds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I was a little hesitant about these headphones since I have had mixed experience with Sony previously (I had bought the WI-1000X through Amazon but sent them back in favour of the Bose because the noise cancelling was poor). However Sony are one of only a few who do truly wireless earbud style noise cancelling headphones so after researching these with the Apple Airpod pro and the Seinhesser I decided to give these a try. I shouldn't have worried. They have been excellent so far. Sound quality is very good and although Noise Cancellation is not total by any means the good option of earbud attachments means that with a bit of trial and error you can get a very good fit. The associated app is pretty good although Sony's explanation of Adaptive noise control, Ambient sound control and Noise Cancellation is all a bit confusing. In essence Adaptive Noise Control only works with NOise Cancellation and adapts the amount of external sound let in based on your environment (Ambient Sound control). Turn this off and you can either have Noise Cancellation On or you can manually change ambient sound control through the app. I found the best setting was to turn Adaptive noise control OFF and just leave the ambient sound control on full noise cancellation. At the price these are reecommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced sound I have been using these earphones for a month. Crystal clear sound with clean high and moderate bass and creates a spacious sound stage. The adaptive sound control automatically sense your movement and sets the noise canceling priority. However, it’s tad slow and you will experience interruption in your music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality, microphones sub-par PROs: Great price point I love these for listening! The sound quality when paired to my iPhone or Mac is phenomenal! The noise-cancelling helps me focus on the task in front of me with ease. The Sony Headphones app is very useful and makes the headphones very configurable. The plenitude of ear tips makes them very comfortable. They have a small profile. CONs: Making calls is tolerable, despite the sub-par microphone quality. These would be absolutely wonderful, and I would have left a glowing 5-star review if these paired well with a PC. (which they don't). FULL REVIEW: I have had these for about a month and have been very, very pleased with them, especially for the price. I'm a convicted audiophile, and these earphones have fulfilled that addiction with aplomb. The sound quality is amazing with crisp treble, full, thumpy bass, and clear midrange, regardless of volume. Sony's app is excellent and allows a surprising number of sound quality, noise-cancelling, and touch control configuration adjustments. The multitude of ear tip sizes/materials ensured a comfortable fit for my sensitive ears. The noise cancelling is excellent and blocks almost all ambient noises. These protrude very little and are almost completely flush with the outside of my ears. These check off all my boxes except for two: 1) Microphone sound quality during calls and 2) PC connection. First, the microphones are excellent at monitoring ambient noise for cancelling purposes, but when in a call, I've been told that I sound echoey. Second, the earphones have a very poor connection with my Windows PC. The PC treats them like a headset and transmits sound signals with a crackly, turntable-like quality. This sound quality also applies to the microphone signal transmitted to the PC. I use headphones to record training videos regularly, and my recorded voice sounds tinny and crackly in the recording. I have done much research and several driver updates, but neither Sony nor Microsoft have built drivers or firmware updates that allow a high-fidelity connection to these earphones. The connection with my iPhone and Mac are flawless. I will hope that Sony fine-tunes their software/firmware for PCs. IN SUMMARY: Great price! Fantastic sound! Useful app! Comfy! Low-profile! Microphone could use some improvement PCs yield poor sound quality These are an amazing pair of earphones, and Sony could be justified in charging a much higher price if this solvable problem were addressed.

So, after few days of using, I am so frustrated with this product and here are some disappointments: -to use this earbuds for conference call, you need to switch to hand-free model manually or else you will not be able to hear anything (took me a long time to figure out) -no quick volume control, sometimes the audio just blows up in my ears. -no quick mute button -bluetooth connection are not that stable especially when connected to laptop -noise cancelling is maybe doing 60% of the job *also, return is not an option due to the pandemic.

I did a lot of research about this make of headphones comparing them to the Apple Airpods and my favourite and usual brand, Sennheiser. For features, sound quality, manageability, looks and price, I definitely made the right choice without a doubt. Multiple thumbs up from me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Noise Cancelling headphones Bought these headphones primarily for the noise cancelling feature, while it does seem to work quite well and the audio quality is decent, I maybe used the wrong earbuds because it was not able to eliminate that much ambient noise (jet engine)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good sound The sound from these is great however, since buying these 2 months ago the battery life has slowly been reducing and is now down around the 4 hour mark which is pretty poor form what should be a premium headphone. The second negative is that the Bluetooth connection is pretty unstable and will drop out and require maybe once an hour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic These are really fantastic ear buds. The sound is crystal clear and the noise cancelling works brilliantly. Bluetooth connection perfect. I've also used them for phone calls and they have worked very well. Choice of ear buds which is great and they fit perfectly and stay in place. My only downside is that the tap controls can be fiddley - maybe that's because I'm still relatively new to them. I absolutely love these and feel they are worth every penny (or cent).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent headphones I purchased these headphones after an underwhelming experience with Cambridge Melomania headphones (average sound quality and Bluetooth connectivity issues). Sony WF-1000XM3 are certainly a step up in sound quality and never had an issue with connectivity. As working from home now I did not buy these for the noise cancelling feature, but it certainly seems to work pretty well and as its the default setting when taking them out the recharging case each time and does not seem too much of an effect on battery life I just leave the noise cancelling on.

This should have been made clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, poor design I've had these ford only about a week now and I'm both very happy and very disappointed. The sound is great and they're a very comfortable fit. The foam earbuds are very good with the noise cancelling option. On the other hand, the foam earbuds also get stuck inside my ears at times. If I go to the smaller size, the earbud just falls out. I've already lost one of the foam pieces because it got stuck and when I went to get it out, it fell and rolled into a drain. You'd think for well over $200 the earbud pieces would stick the the actual earbud better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst in ear headset i've owned I'm a musician and record in studio some time to time and quite fuzzy when it comes to sound quality. And thought these ones should be nice. But the worst thing with these pair is the sound quality, I tried all kinds of settings, listen to different songs and genres with different kind of sounds/instruments. When playing high volym you really hear/feel they are even OVER its max capacity. The sound feels very trapped in, no good clearness and you can't hear many of those small beautiful details in songs you would hear with other headsets in same price range. And all the "extra features" you get with these doesn't work that good and is just not worth the money. I'm dissapointed. So earlier today I went to an "specialist store", tried and bought a pair of Master & Dynamic ME05 and wow, these ones have everything I missed with these bad 1000XM3 and even way way more and better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not great, but still an okay option for me I've had these for about 6 months. I previously had Jabra Elite 75t and loved their functionality, but they were not shaped to fit my ears and were very painful to wear. The reason I bought the Sony ear buds is because they don't rely on my ear's anatomy to fit -- they go directly into the canal and are reasonably comfortable to wear. I bought them from a legitimate store in-person, so they're the real deal. The sound is good, the noise canceling is quite nice, and they charge quickly and have decent battery life. Pretty much everything else is a downside though. Constant connectivity issues: It takes multiple tries to connect with my devices when I turn the ear buds on, they'll randomly disconnect from my devices when they're in use, and one (sometimes both) of the ear buds will cut out regularly. About 30% of the time when I remove them from the case, only one ear bud will turn on, and I'll have to reboot them a few times before the issue is resolved. Don't stay in the ears: I definitely didn't expect them to stay in as well as models that fit the outer structure of the ear instead of just going into the canal like these do, and I know they're not sports headphones. That said, these will come out of my ears if I just walk around my house, and I definitely can't wear them out and about without constantly adjusting them (I almost lost one down a storm drain). Yes, I've tried all the silicone fittings that came with this product and this is the best fit I can get. Microphone doesn't work: I can't use these for calls on my phone or my laptop due to the spotty microphone. No one can hear me. This is a pretty major bummer. Misc: It might just be my laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad, a recent model) or the version of Zoom I use, but I can't control the volume when I use these to connect to Zoom calls, which means I either have to switch to my corded headphones or accept that my ears are going to get damaged. These also weren't compatible with my work laptop, which is an older Dell model. I didn't have either of these problems with the Jabra Elite 75t, which is why I mention them. For the steep price they're a major letdown. The only thing they really work for is listening to music/media on my phone or personal laptop at home, when I can get them to connect. That said, that's all I really need them for right now (I'm writing this during the COVID lockdown). I'll definitely be replacing them with something more versatile when I start commuting again. Would not repurchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much potential but doesn’t live up to it I brought these in July, they started off great and I liked the noise cancelling. Connection kept dropping out though and it became apparent that when on calls people struggled to hear me. Then 3 months later, the right earbud wouldn’t connect anymore and had a flashing red light. Sony were quick to fox and return it under the warranty, however connection and call quality issues persisted. They’ve got 2 stars purely for the service in trying to solve problems without any hassle otherwise I’d give them 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Ok, this is early days, but, I am so impressed with the WF-1000XM3. I have listened to a wide and varied amount of music, some of it my reference material and the information and presentation of the sound is truly pleasing and immersive. The headphones fit well, and are surprisingly unobtrusive and comfortable, the supplied buds were a perfect fit for me straight out of the box, but there are 6 more pairs supplied that can be mixed and matched to suit if needed. Making full use of the downloadable App’s allows many tweaks to be made if required and I’m sure many will find them useful. I opted for the Silver finish, and it looks really smart, the whole package is really pleasing on the eye, and the charging carry case is just right for going in my pocket, not too large nor too small to be considered as fiddly. I would write more, but the headphones beckon. Just to sum up though, I am so pleased that I bought them, they are outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreliable I originally bought these in June of 2020. Sound quality, noise cancelling, and charge time are all great. I found out right away that the advertised 24hr battery life is false. I've never had them last longer than 8 hours. I experienced issues in trying to answer calls while using them headphones almost immediately, but that wasn't a huge deal to me. Then I started experiencing general connectivity and power issues in which I would have to put the headphones back in the case and remove them to fix. Thankfully, I got a Squaretrade warranty on them because less than 3 months later (early September 2020) the right headphone completely stopped charging and powering on. I received the warranty replacements at the end of September and almost immediately experienced the same power and connectivity issues. As of today, October 31, 2020, the right headphone would not play sound, but showed up in the Sony Headphones app as charged 100% and the touch sensor would respond when tapped. It finally worked after leaving it in the case for about a minute. Overall, I wouldn't waste my money on these because you can get much more dependable true wireless headphones for half the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible sound. Best Bluetooth buds I’ve owned. I’ve owned these for close to 4 months now. Sound is amazing. Great range and customizable. You don’t have to worry about bass. You can dial in as much as you want or back it off. Great 5 band EQ with the Headphones Connect app. I’ve started to enjoy music again as these bring it back to life. No fatigue with these either. No problem wearing for hours on end. Longest stretch so far for me is roughly 5-6 hours (on one charge!). Case will hold its charge until you drain it. I’ve only recharged 3 times so far. Pros.... all the above plus great range. I can leave the phone downstairs in the house and stay connected throughout all 2500sq ft plus reaches most all areas of my yard. So well beyond 15 metres Cons... only one. The right bud will occasionally disconnect for several seconds for no reason. Doesn’t matter where the phone is. It could be in hand 2 ft away. I’ve just reset them so will see if that solves it (one of recommended fixes). This is the reason for docking one star. If not resolved they will need to be replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't buy Have only had it one day... That was enough. The motion detection function is enough to make you crazy and the audio quality is just not good enough to put up sore ears and poor sound cancellation. Too many features, Sony needs to learn to keep it simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wireless headphones I wanted a set of wireless headphones which I could use on the commute and whilst running. The reviews on these headphones consistently rated them the best. I can hear why. Once you have worked out which size buds to use and how to twist fit them in your ear they stay in place and the sound quality is fantastic. The ambient sound feature is very useful if you need to be more aware of your environment but obviously has an effect on the sound quality. There is a slightly audible noise when the noise cancelling is used but they do cut out almost all the outside world, great if you are on noisy transport. For me, one of the best features is the re-charging storage box. These earphones are always ready to go and the battery life in the storage box is phenomenal. My only concern is they are not waterproof so running in the rain might cause them to be damaged. Overall I am so pleased I bought these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad for calls, awesome for music. I had to return my headphones because people couldn't hear me properly on calls/meetings. Also, the noise-cancelling feature doesn't work on calls/meetings. However, I highly recommend these headphones if you want to wear them exclusively for listening to music — then the sound is crisp and clear, the noise-cancelling works well, and the pairing is easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good option for wireless earphones Have been using the earphones for months now and this has been my daily driver for attending meetings and media consumption on my phone. Overall, the earbuds have held up really well but had a few issues I have noticed some issues during my use 1) The right earbud stops working once in a while while watching videos and then starts working 2) on a few occasions I could not hear anything from the earbuds while it was connected, even though my device was at full volume 3) occasional buzzing sound in the right earbud. The solution to all of the above issues was to put both earbuds in the case. Overall for my personal use, it has been good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is everything I have had a great time experimenting with these headphones. Some of the features I like are the ability to get notifications, messages, calls and so much more. I like that the headphones can read everything to you. One feature that stands out to me is when listening to music and removing either headphone from either ear will automatically pause the music and continue when you put them back in. The charging case is great because it helps the headphones stay charged all the time and last 24+ hours. One feature I don't like is that it is left headphone dominant, you must use the left headphones and can't choose your comfort. I do like the ability to easily connect them using NFC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Awesome! Hello! I wasn't sure what to expect with the new earbuds but my expectations were exceeded. My first experience with them was mowing the lawn, it just blew my mind how well they worked, they were clear, quiet and comfortable and battery easily lasted, what more could I ask for!? After a quick charge I was back in the game and started to play around with built in Amazon Alexa to play music, it worked very well. Last week I went Side by Siding in the Black Hills and I was able to drown out the machine noise and still was able to hear the passenger, where have these been all my life? The styling could use a little work but for the most part I couldn't find any issues. Thank you Sony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Great I have tried all of the earpiece cushions and none create a tight seal. The earphones slip out of my ears when walking. The lack of volume control is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Real World Experience with Sony WF-1000XM3 Loved the premium looks and feel. Audio is awesome, just like its bigger brother WH-1000XM3. Audio for receiving calls is very good. No complaints from friends and families on my voice or sound when I was using the Sony earbuds.But found occasionally lost the bluetooth connection with my Galaxy Note 9. Not sure if this is my unit problem or my handphone. I didn't encounter the same issue with my Sony WH-1000XM3 though.I don't use this earphone for any sports activity as I only want to use the earbuds for listening casual music/video and phone calls. Overall, I'm very happy with the Sony earbuds WF-1000XM3.

While putting it back to the charging case, the RIGHT LED light would start blinking. Visited SONY Singapore and they gave me a NEW 1, so you can see SONY's dedication to customer satisfaction. I BOUGHT another product to CANCEL OUT my partner's snoring, the ear bud rubber quality was SO BAD that it shattered into small crumbs: I asked for a NEW 1 as it is still within WARRANTY but they wanted to CHARGE me-That is QuietOn. Can I request SONY to build one for us??? SONY should do well with its noise-cancelling technology and most importantly, customer service!!!SONY ROCKS...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sound In Its Class Great sound! The best in its class - even better than the JXbrX Elite 65T! Listen to the recording of nature sounds (rain, ocean wave, river sound, etc) with these little gems, and you will know what I mean ;) Battery is also acceptable - can't expect much with the NC and DESS-HX on, right? The only complaint is the size of the earbuds - a bit too big for my ears and can get fatigue (and hurt a little) after wearing for some time. Nevertheless, I'd recommend this without any hesitation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really wanted to like them.... I have used it for about 2 weeks. I find the audio drops in one earbud sometimes. And the voice call quality is terrible. I end up disconnecting the earbuds for calls. Also, the noise cancelling feature gives an extremely echoey effect when I wear them while walking, and this gives me a headache. I have tried the different earbud sizes, but if they are too loose, it makes no difference from my usual wired earphones (I.e. no noise cancelling effect). If they fit well, the echoey effect when I walk is amplified. Can't see how I will continue using them except for the fact that I paid so much for them...felt like I wasted my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These earphones will blow you away Having owned noise cancelling headphones, I was looking for something that is portable to use on my travels instead of carrying bulky over-ear headphones and the WF-1000XM3 fits perfectly with my needs. When I got these, I was blown away with how well the noise cancelling worked. I can basically focus on just the music. The product comes with several sized foam and silicon tips, can you can choose the size that gives the best seal in your ear canal. The touch sensors are sensitive and work well. To truly set-up the earphones, you will need the Sony Headphones connect app. The app gives you the ability to change the touch sensor functions as well as sound quality through an equalizer. I would suggest that you google and look at Youtube for various custom equalizer settings so that you can set up the sound to your liking. Setting the equalizer make these earphones even better

Other side can hear background noise clearly. When I stopped talking, it became complete silence to the other side (similar to walkie talkie). 6. Device support lacking in a few areas. a. Does not work with older iPad without the Sony app. b. Volume is low on iPod Nano 7th generation by default. Had to connect to iPhone, crank up the volume and connect to iPod again to get the volume up. c. While listening to podcasts, sometimes the sound cuts out of the blue. Had to reconnect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WF-1000XM3 I'm fine with that because the WF-1000XM3 has a very different design from the original WF-1000X. It's a totally new headphone with a new charging case (the earphones come in black and beige color), new drivers, new touch controls and a new QN1e processor that improves both the noise-canceling effect and the sound quality. They use Bluetooth 5.0. Not everybody is going to love that design. It mixes both modern and retro aesthetics and the earphones aren't as discreet as say, the Jabra Elite 65t or Elite Active 65t. They stick out of your ears more than some true wireless earphones, which made me feel a little geeky. But they did fit my ears securely and I found them comfortable to wear. It's important to note that with these earphones it's crucial to get a tight seal to get optimal sound quality and optimal noise canceling. As with the Beats Powerbeats Pro, you will likely be disappointed by the performance without a tight seal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey, but amazing! Despite being pricey, these earbuds are amazing. The noise-cancelling works perfectly fine and you can barely hear anything (even voices in a noisy office) when you have that function on with music playing at a low volume. I've been using it for voice calls and meetings, and according to the other party, my voice is clear and there's no wind noise even when I have the fan rotating in the background. The sound quality when listening to music are what you'd expect from SONY (which is amazing, of course) and in meetings are crystal clear without any lags. I love how you can customize the functions on each earbud to suit your needs and they work perfectly! The battery life is impressive too, tho in my case with noise-cancelling on all the time, it doesn't really meet the 6 hours on full charge as advertised (it was around 4 to 5 hours). But that's alright as the earbuds does charge up rather quickly in the case. The only issue I've faced is that when the earbuds are connected to my laptop to play music (I've tried it on both my work and personal laptop), you can hear some skips, but not when it's connected to my phone. No idea why. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. Overall an amazing product and definitely one of my best purchases ever. Great job, Sony! ??

Earbuds is alittle large, and there is a worry that it might fall off from my ear if I moved too much. Although it haven't fall out from my ear before, however I am constantly pushing it into the ear, ensuring that it will not drop off. Mic and connection is good, but the disappoint part is when there is earpiece was used in place where a lot of signals are present there may be some jerking in the music happens like without notice, frequency about once or twice in 20 mins, not sure is my unit's issue or is the product itself.

But rather disappointed with the call quality which should be fairly straight forward for a product with ANC. To be fair, using it for music works great but for that price, we would expect a simple call to be easily managed without having to switch devices. I wish Sony would resolve this, but if cannot be done, i would switch out the set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best earbuds I bought this despite having already owned the Airpods Pro and I am essentially, an Apple fan. The reason for doing this is because I am still not quite happy with the sound stage from the Pro. With this Wf-1000XM3, it just blow my mind away. The sound is definitely better than the Pro. So, if you are going for the music and sound, this is the one! The ANC is better than the Pro and I can testify this - although not by alot. I would give a 9 for this and an 8.5 for the Airpods Pro in ANC. Ok, so far the above qualifies for 5 stars. However, as in all products, there are some features that i find needs to improve; 1)The design is outdated and huge 2)Case is huge 3)You really need to find the earbuds that fits you. I tried many times just to find the right ones 4)I also noticed that there are distortions (like happens a second) in sound from my iphone/ipad to this earbuds. This occurs every 15 minutes or so. Did a research on their manual/Q&A and found it could be because of other bluetooth interference or body coming in between. I tried a few times to improve, like restarting iphone and/or the earbuds. From my test, the most optimal results can be obtained by using 4G (ie disconnect your wifi) and the distortions go away. Due to item 4, i gave 4 starts. The other 3 points are minute to me. Considering i wasnt using a sony phone (i guessed i will not), the overall experience is almost perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safest choice, best for some reasons. Been using these for 2 months. Many tech reviewers/people said this XM3 case is kinda bulky and not-so pocket friendly, i agreed but i don't mind it as well because of the build quality that isn't looked cheap or plasticky. The fit of these earbuds are just ok, slightly uncomfortable. Had to adjust them on my ears around 3-4 times in an hour listening time. They also stick out. After 2 weeks of trying to find the perfect eargels/foams that provided in the box. Finally i found the most comfy one for my ears, the medium-sized earfoams. The eargels were itchy inside my ears, didn't give the best sound as well. The earfoams are better because they produce a bit more of a bass. Sound quality on these are ok, far from bad for its today's price. I love headphones with a wide soundstage, these didn't have it. Customizing your own EQ on the Sony Headphones App is a must. Finally i found my best EQ setting: 400 (+9), 1k (+5), 2,5k (+8), 6,3k (-3), 15,6k (-6) + Clear Bass: +10. That setting made the volume of the sound tad louder in my experience since they don't really loud nor very bass. Overall, XM3 is steal for today's price. You can't go wrong with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeps falling off * Bought this in December because my jabra 65t battery life wasn't long enough and sound was just ok. * Good battery life but only lasts about 4 hours on the average never reached 8 hours as claimed. Longest was about 6 hours when it was brand new. * Noise cancellation and ambient sound control really good. Noise cancellation works for me. Sound is excellent. This is the only reason why I still use them. Nice feature of letting sound through by pressing on the left bud. * It feels like it will fall off. and does I've tried all of the buds and ended up with the smallest. it has fallen off while standing, in bed or while sitting down. It works best sitting up. * The buttons on the buds are hard to find. * Doesn't connect to two or more devices at the same time. My cheaper jabra does.. * the carrying case should be more informative. If it is already fully charged, it should light up green. If it needs to be charged, it should be red. I shouldn't have to connect to my phone to see the carrying case charge. The buds tell you its battery status so that's ok but the charging case is too big and needs redesign. * In summary, I'd think twice about buying this if I was on the move. I do love the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To be honest I am disappointed with WF-1000XM3 2 issues keep happening barely a week and it is getting frequent: 1. song keeps stuttering/cutting off 2. Bluetooth connection disconnected around 15-20 mins after continuously play I am using this earphone using iPhone 11 Pro Max. I DON'T HAVE such issue with Jabra Elite 65T or Sony NW-WS623. I realized it is very susceptible to 2.4Ghz wifi signals. When I switched to 5Ghz it is less distortion. This is a design flaw. Serial Number : 6323950 Date Of Purchase: 27-05-2020

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but can be better No doubt the sound quality is great, there is some letdown which really to be improved as much. For instance, distortion or lag during outdoor playback is really annoying, extremely low audible volume for unknown made the whole listening experience to disastrous state, sudden loss of sound on single earbuds without recovery really annoying and least desirable. Hope Sony can take note to resolve all these issues in order to justify the cost of price paid

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This is my first time buying such an expensive pair of earphones and I have to say it has spoiled me. There's depth in the sound and it's hard to go back to my less expensive earphones which lack it. Noise cancelling is unlike that of the power of over-ear headphones but is still OK. It cancels out white noise pretty well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing is perfect even with Sony The sound quality is amazing in an overall sense with the clarity of vocals and instruments, balanced audio, and very detailed sound reproduction. Just the bass isn't as good as expected but keep it in mind this isn't an Extra Bass product. The eartips tend to move easily especially when you do something that involves areas around your ears. Also, there isn't an IP rating for water resistance which makes this not so suitable for gym though it is usable at your own risk. Overall I would say it's a good pair of earbuds especially if you are looking for clarity and detailed sound reproduction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price I bought this about a month ago due to covid19 work from home, was researching online on a few product and majority state that this ear bud is the best overall true wireless ear bud. The noise cancelling feature to mt surprise was great as compare to my other ear bud that i am using which also has noise cancellation. The app was great that it allow me to adjust the sound swtting eg bass etc which is great and i can selecr diff mode for diff purposes. Sound quality was great, tried it with voice conversation and it was loud and clear from both parties, 3 way call. Tried music audiophile quality, it was great. Size is compact and comfortable, wear is comfortable to me that i can wear it for a long period. Battery life is good too, it can last me 3 to 5 days. Design wise,it is very sleek and professional looking. Definitely for those executive use. Overall it is a great true wireless ear bud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would say this is an overrated earphones. Not as I expected. I bought it after saw a lots of positive reviews in the Youtube. Before I bought this earphones, I already bought other TWS earphone which is 10 times cheaper. I gave this earphone 2 stars because of the price. I'm not this earphones is bad. What I want to say is there is other cheaper TWS earphones can also produce as good as this earphone. What I hate the most is the Ambient Sound Control. I just don't know how to disable it. It is very annoying especially when I want to use it while I'm riding my motorcycle or cycling my bicycle. It keeps trying to "adopt" to current environment which makes it appears not very stable while I'm listening to music. I keep getting the "click" sound as it was trying to "adopt" to the current environment every 10 seconds. Also, while cycling, I can't get rid the wind sound which is very annoying. I try to disable the Ambient Sound Control but it keeps coming back. I really hate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad Bluetooth functionality I bought these recently and it has been a bad experience using them so far. Initially, headphones could connect to both my iPhone and iPAD. But the connection would drop after a while intermittently. Couldn't pair with my laptop. Sony Live Chat support advised me to reset my headphones by pressing the headphones for 10 sec. Things become worse, headphones can connect to 1 device only. Example, after paired with iPhone, headphones no longer can pair with iPAD. Connection would still drop intermittently. Still doesn't work with my laptop. I had WI-1000 previously and it was a great product. It's quite unbelievable that Sony released WF-1000XM3 with such unstable functionality.

Just the downsides for me is the earbuds sometimes can fall off my ear if I bend down to pick up something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I’ve ever had. These really are great pieces of kit. The sound from them is the best I’ve ever had. The detail is excellent: separation of sounds unlike anything I’ve ever heard. I am even able to hear singers inhale on some tracks. The noise cancelling is excellent too. Unfortunately, it maybe a little too good, as it almost completely suppresses my family when they try to talk to me. The controls are pretty good, but the ease of turning on the voice assistant is a bit too easy and is easy to do accidentally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sounds, bad Bluetooth and battery At first I loved these but then started using the Bluetooth, "you under the sea?", "God this is a bad line" were some of the comments when I was on the phone. Then you have the battery, tells you it's at 50% then next minute it's low battery and a little later they turn off. Disappointing, even more so with the price of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good headphones, ridiculous support Not a great fit for my ears, but generally was quite happy with the headphones. But functionality is all is quite irrelevant when you can't use the headphones as Sony will try to outrageously overcharge you when you happen to loose one of the components. Lost my charging case and Sony asks 125€ for the case and additional 50€ for syncing case with the headphones, so 175€ in total. Thats almost the same price as buying new headphones. So now I have 3 month old useless headphones. Almost all my electronics are Sony (TV, camera RX100-VII, Playstation 4, other headphones wh1000xm), but the next product will be very hard sell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Selecting the correct ear tip is paramount!! I purchased these for various applications mainly to listen to the tv and music from my hi fi via a high end bluetooth transmitter and they sound excellent, a big setup from using the iPhone in sound, but to get the absolute best is to try all the ear tips, I also purchased more ear tips to see if they made any sound improvements and there was an difference. I have one moan, that is, I would find it very useful to connect to my iPhone at the same time as connecting to the high end bluetooth transmitter so I can do adjustments, I have a second pair of earbuds that do, but they don’t sound as accurate as the Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT audio but TERRIBLE microphone for calls I love Sony products, so I bought these earphones not long after they first came out. I primarily use them to listen to music and podcasts on my way to work. For listening to music and audio they may be the best earphones on the market. However, I have to date never been able to make a phone call without the person I'm talking to complaining about how bad I sound. They constantly sound like I am in a wind tunnel. I have been extremely frustrated with this product for making phone calls. They are basically unusable. If you don't care about calls, then buy these. If you do plan to use them, I cannot recommend. Perhaps, I got a bad pair. If so, Sony please let me know what can be done to fix this. Yes, I have done all of the firmware updates and no I have never dropped them or gotten them wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound Stuttering when listening to music I bought this on 15th Jun 20 and have been having this issue of sound stuttering whenever listening to Spotify, Youtube or local file musics. While the ANC works perfectly and the sound is amazing, but the sound stuttering shatters the whole experience of listening to music. I'm using a Samsung Note10 running on latest OS. I've sent the earphones for repair by the first week of usage and it took the technicians 3 weeks without any feedback unless I called in to request for status update. Yesterday I collected the earphones, the report says the charging case and left earphone was replaced. However I still experience this issue without resolving the issue. This is a terrible experience for a premium wireless earphone.

Add in the use of Tidal streaming customised by personal ear photo tuning and surround sound with reasonable Noise cancelling (not total in my view but acceptable), the result is a very pleasurable listening experience. This is due to the combination of the headphines and the excellent hifi quality streaming subscription!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise Cancelling The noise cancelling is excellent and the sound quality is perfect! The added ambient sound is a plus as this is important if you’re travelling and taking public transport. The app needs a bit of going around to know how. The only thing that I don’t like is the fit of the buds on my ear. I tried all the sizes and it doesn’t fit my ear well. The problem is it can easily be dropped. I used to have a bose and it fits snuggly on my ear. This one it’s scary to use when travelling as it has the tendency of dropping or losing. Another feature that sony don’t have is the waterproofing. As a daily driver it should have the IP ratings so i can use it even when it pours. Unfortunately, for the price, i’m not taking the risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best sound quality I really am happy and amazed by the sound quality the WF-1000XM3 has, it is the best headphone I've ever used, sound wise. But there is a minor but essential flaw, the practicality of these headphone, if this could be a suggestion for sony in the future, please make a great headphone WITH the practicality, I mean I want to use it throughout the day, commuting, jogging, even just relaxing in the bathtub. Maybe it sounded too good to be true, but I say what I want to say as an audiophile, when that product is released, I will happily buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony WF-1000XM3 Bad Ear Fit/Design I bought these wireless earbuds because I already have a pair of wireless over-ear phones and wanted the same exceptional sound quality but with the flexibility to be mobile as well as work out, etc. I also own a pair of apple airpods and honestly the sound quality of the Sony earbuds blows Airpods out of the water (literally). However, what good is exceptional sound quality if the design of the earbud is uncomfortable and does not fit. Not to mention there are very few people who like the design of earbuds that require you change out the in-ear silicon pieces to get a good fit (which is never perfect nor comfortable). I wish Sony had designed the earbuds similar to the airpod with a flat earplug design vs the in-ear with silicon tips design. The airpod flat earplug design is almost universally comfortable no matter the size of the ear due to the design. I'm sure Sony can figure out a better way to ensure an exceptionally comfortable fit while providing the same awesome sound quality we come to expect from them. I unfortunately will be returning my WF-1000XM3 earbuds for the SOLE reason that they are VERY uncomfortable and do not stay in well (and that is after having tested each and every different size silicon tip that came in the box). I have very small ears and my Apple airpods fit perfectly and are super snug (even when I'm dancing or working out). My spouse has a very large ear canal and the Airpods still fit perfectly! Although we are SONY fans to the core as the sound quality of Sony products is UN-Matched, we cannot justify buying these earbuds at this price point with such a huge issue with comfort and fit. Sony PLEASE RE-DESIGN THESE to fit like regular airpods (Gen2) while maintaining noise cancelling functionality. There has got to be a way to accomplish this. Also the charging case for these is almost obnoxiously large. As a women who tends to prefer a minimalist existence, I carry a small wristlet with only essentials but this case is just not small or discrete enough to fit in it. My airpods case is perfect (about the size of a dental floss container). I could literally fit the airpods case inside the Sony case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, performance when connected to PC poor When connected to a smartphone and using the associated headphones app the sound is great. The noise cancellation effect is pretty good, almost drowns out the moaning kids (though not quite... what could though?!) and when you turn it off (ambient) you realise how well the NC works! Have managed to pair with an Android (Samsung Note 9) and iPhone XR as well as my work laptop and personal Windows Surface and I'm able to swap between seamlessly without having to go through a re-pairing process each time. Just need to make sure BT is off on the other devices. The only gripe is when connected to the laptop invariably the audio on calls ends up sounding like some people are underwater. Not all the time and doesn't seem to be related to bandwidth as my regular Jabra headset is fine. Could well be some issues with bluetooth that I have not yet got to the bottom of, specific to my laptop. I appreciate not everyone will be using for calls from a PC. Making and receiving calls on the phone is crystal clear and have had no problems there. The amount of different ear buds is great. Not sure I've found the perfect fit yet, one ear is fine but the other still feels a bit loose. Some experimentation to do there still! The charging case is really good, I've not really charged this beyond the 1st charge when I got them and both headphones are still 100% charged with 30% left on the case. I'm using them probably mostly for skype / teams calls from the laptop for about 5 hours per day over a working week. As I am at home I'm not listening to music through them right now but I have no doubt these could comfortably deal with a long commute without worrying about running out of charge! Great headphones, super noise cancellation, brilliant connectivity

After paying $230 at Best Buy for them I was expecting great performance. The noise canceling feature crackles and goes fuzzy when using an air nozzle and the most annoying thing is that they randomly disconnect for my device about 3-4 time a day and I have to go into my device settings and reconnect. I’ve tried using them with and without the app and get the same results regardless, perhaps even better results without using the app. On thing I will give them is that they are comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They sound great if they can stay connected These are the worst bluetooth devices I have ever owned. They can’t manage to stay connected long enough to even pair. It doesn’t matter if you have priority on stable connection in the Headphones Connect app, because it’s the same no matter what you pair to. After 50 some-odd factory resets, they just don’t work. If you can manage to finally pair, you’re disconnect in between 5-30 seconds. They’re currently sent back for another try, but I hold no hope. Meanwhile, the wh1000-xm3s have been great. You’d think the bluetooth performance on these buds would be similar.

I have tried a several earbuds and these are by far the best. It comes with USB-C charging , but there is no wireless charging which would be nice considering the full price The touch controls are a really nice feature for changing settings or songs. I tried these while mowing the lawn and the mower definitely sounded more tamed. This I could actually hear my podcast! The app has so many different settings for sound and you can change the noise cancellation depending on you environment Audio quality is amazing! The bass sounds authentic and heavy, the voice is crisp and clear. It feels like you are listening to a quality product. Battery life has been great so far and I am not forced to charge it throughout the day like my other headphones. Sony has done an excellent job, they have addressed all of the issues and done a great job dealing with them.

I tried one of my friends Airpods Pro & I can't tell the difference, the only difference I can tell is the Noise-Canceling is way better on these so yeah I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This design earbuds need serious improvement The design need to be improve as the earphone can be very loose and possible drop off from our ears The earbuds sometimes will disconnect for a seconds to the device. Sound quality is definitely very great and as well as ANC is great too. Overall a good experience with wf-1000xm3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amzing Sound!! Bought this a month ago and I cant live without it now!! Best accessory for my daily life. One does need to get used to the sizing and fit of the earpiece otherwise it is perfect. For someone like me who watches movies and listens to music every single day, this was perfect. The functions of pausing, playing and skipping songs was what Ive always been looking for. Best buy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new earbuds I am really liking my new earbuds! Love the noise canceling feature, and being able to control the volume from the earbud!! Still figuring out all the features on my earbuds. This is the first time ever using an earbud. I like that they are wireless and I love that you get a selection of different ear covers in many different sizes!! I do wish the instructions were a little more clear! Pictures are great and all but written directions with the pictures would be a lot better especially for us older ones who aren't always so technologically savvy!! It was really easy to hook them up to bluetooth and as soon as I take them out if the charger and put them in my ears they are hooked up to my phone!! Love it. Last night I was listening to a Zoom meeting and Facebook live at the same time with my earbuds!! It was awesome!! Still figuring out the touch controls. Had a hard time turning the sound down. Need to go to the App and read how again. Need to set up Google Assistant too. The sound quality of these is great and the noise canceling feature works wonderfully!! I'm still playing with the earbud covers to try to get one that fits good. I must have really small ears because even the smallest seems to big. It doesn't take but a half hour or so to charge them up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dissapointing OK but pricey and not as great as I had hoped. The picture instructions that come with them are utterly useless, fortunately the downloadable manual makes more sense. They also interfere badly with the WiFi reception to my mobile phone which nulls one of the main reason for buying - to listen to internet radio, but this problem is not exclusive to theWF-1000MX3 and happnes with many other BT headphones and earphones. Sound quality at least is good although I'm not impressed by the Sony Headphones Connect app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Had these a few months now, the sound quality is great. I can't fault them at all. The charging pod is attractive too. The only issue I have, and it's a totally personal one, they don't fit my ears very well, even with the smallest covers on them. I struggle to keep them in my ears. They just seem too big (the ear buds, not my ears). Now, this could be me inserting them wrong, I've never had wireless before, but it does spoil my enjoyment of an otherwise fabulous product...please don't let my seemingly small ears put you off purchasing these though, they are totally fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracking sound I bought these about a month ago. Initially I was going to go with the Google Pixel buds 2 but they don't seem to be coming out in the UK anytime soon so I opted for these. I cannot see how the pixel buds could be any better than these. The sound quality is genuinely outstanding. I've found it a little difficult to get the bids to stay in my left ear properly but haven't had a proper play around. Fantastic earbuds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from these in ear headphones My first in ear headphones having had Sony over head wireless Noise cancelling headphones before. The sound is very good for all types of music - I listen from Rock to Classic. Wind Noise reduction works really well when out walking and people tell me the phone call quality is really good. Would have received 5 stars but the noise Cancelling is not excellent. Good enough when you listen to music but quite a lot of background noise is still present if watching TV on a device for example. My Sony overhead phones were much better at this function. All in all an excellent buy though and very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good earphones These earphones sound really good and are quite light to have i the ear. I used the fitting that came already on the earphones and I haven’t felt the need to try the other’s out for fit. My only bugbear would be that the right earphone tends to lose connection just for a fraction of a second causing an interruption in the music play, it only does this when outside moving about but this isn’t enough to make me send them back. Overall they sound great, fit well for walking and the battery lasts very well also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusable for calling but good for music I bought these headphones as I was looking for a single product that would combine the things I needed and was looking for (not simply hoped for) in such a headset . Price was not the issue, I am willing to pay whatever is necessary for a premium product if it is really fit for purpose. As advertised, the WF-1000XM3's seemed like the choice to go with if I wanted to have: 1. wireless, hands-free calling whilst on the move 2. noise cancellation technology (useful in busy offices, airplanes, commutes) 3. good sound quality for listening to music The extra perks that I thought are really cool are also and were a huge bonus to me: 4. the headphones are relatively comfortable 5. the google assistant 6. the app that comes with the headphones and their adjustability It is now after three weeks of use that I deeply regret to say but I will be returning my earbuds. 5 out of the 6 features listed above are true and the headphones perform extremely well, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THEY ARE COMPLETELY USELESS WHEN USED AS A CALLING DEVICE. The call quality is ridiculously bad, and even though the user of the headphones can clearly hear the person he is talking to, that is absolutely not the case for his/hers interlocutor. As call quality is an important feature a headphone in my case MUST have, and was one of the reasons to buy this particular headset (based on its advertising it appeared superb - see attached picture), the failure to meet the most basic quality standards here made me rate these headphones merely average. If you do not plane to use them for calling purposes they should be absolutely fine, but because Iam looking for a all-in-one solution this is definitely not it. Did not expect this from Sony, especially not at this price point. Feel free to google this issue on the web, it is quite big amongst the community who bought these headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST music quality, Weak call performance. If you want the best noise cancelling true wireless earphones for music playback, You should have these! One small drawback is that in quiet rooms while listening to some high quality music You can hear some stuttering. When Optimising sound to Connection, not Quality improves this a bit, but it still remains - especially when changing tracks, fast forwarding or after a prolonged period of time. They are also good for the gym of running workouts, as long as You dont sweat excessively and dont jump around too much. I found them to be holding tight during my running sessions. But - CALL QUALITY IS VERY WEAK. My voice sometimes sounds robotic and people on other side says my Mic picks up all the surrounding noise. Sometimes there is also connection quality isssues, especially when driving. Also, SONY should allow to change settings for ambient noise during call. It sounds to me that even if You have Ambient noise turned off, it gets turned on while in-call. It is very annoying as I can hear myself without extra ambient sound amplification already. Another feedback - SONY should allow to configure what preset is used by default when swithcing them on. Currently it is Noise Cancellation (And if you want to turn it off you either have to program one of the touch sensors for modes or do it manually each time on Sony app). I would love to give this product 5 stars, as I see how much work has been put in delivering such a nice sounding Wireless Earphons. Nevertheless - during day, my work requires to do calls quite often with my clients and I have to take out one Earpeace then. And unfortunately, after a while it becomes an annoyance and I stop listening music at all :(.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convinced and Surprised. I thought I finally had the best. I had tried every single earphone on the Market and finally figured out that there were only two top brands of truly great sounding earphones. All that changed when I got these earphones. No there is but One at the top of all other earphones on the market, the Sony XM3's. After the Firware the N/c truly made a difference which made the already dominate clarity and soundstage power even better with more silence. Then you add the comfort that I have with these. All ears are different but for me the rubber portion at the base of the plug really added balance and surity that disappeared, leaving nothing but the feeling that sound presence existing inside you mind only and no place else. Finally, the battery life that is said to be 6 or 8 hours. Not sure yet if it's true but I have not needed to find out as my time with earphone only last about 2 hours or so in sessions. So as long as I have 4 hours or more I will never run out throughout the day. Both line, Get them. They may just end up being the very best earphone you have tried. It might even rival your headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heaphones, weird lifespan Bought this headphones on August since it tackled my needs, long battery, good audio quality, etc. Now, October and I find myself charging my headphones after 3 hours of playback even with NC off. I've also been dealing with random disconnects as well having one earpiece... doesn't matter which since both have done it where they completely stop working and even charging unless I do a hard reset. I've owned different Sony headphones in which I haven't been dissapointed; however with these I felt confident to the point I didn't put warranty on them and now I wish I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not worth the money dont buy Had these 1 month and disappointed. Noise cancelling only works in quiet room , does not work adequately on public transport or when out. The controls are hard to work and the earbuds struggle to register one tap compared to two or three taps. When wearing a hood it was changing and pausing the music. Laughing, smiling or just walking makes the earbuds come loose from the ears. Very overpriced and not worth it. Also quite clunky and dont look very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed by how BAD these pricey headphones are! I’ve been fighting with these headphones for 2 months now trying to like them but it appears to be a lost cause. They never connect properly; one of them will inevitably not initially connect, and after multiple attempts may never do so. Sound often glitches in and out even with setting set to priority on stable connection. The process for pairing to new devices is incredibly aggravating. But maybe worst of all is the uneven battery drain; leave them unused in the case for a few days and for some reason one unit will drain completely while the other remains at 70%. Really disappointed in this product! I used to be a big fan and supporter of buying Sony products, but shifting more and more to LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my best and trusty wireless headphones Sony has been in the Audio market for a while (think Walkman) and they know a thing or two about it. Pretty much all major movie and music studios use professional grade Sony headphones for their production purposes. I have owned a bunch of over-the-head Sony headphones as well as In-ear ones and they surely did a good job. When I was presented with an opportunity to use Sony's WF-1000XM3 buds, I didn't hesitate to buy them, because I knew Sony would not disappoint me. First of all, these wireless headphones are pretty comfortable compared to the other brands I own, I would suggest that if you are a new user, please try all the available silicon rubber earbuds provided in the box to fit your ear just right. Pairing these with my phone was also easy, just download the Sony Headphones Connect app and you will be set. Within the app, you will find multiple ways to customize your listening experience. What I like about these headphones is its noise cancelling function that kicks in and automatically detects the environment you are in and adjusts to it: if you are walking or in a noisy transport, it knows exactly what to do. You can also use your select presets or your own custom equalizer to make your music sound even better. I would say the charging case looks really cool and has a nice feel, however it could have been a bit smaller, also the lack of charging it wirelessly is something I would suggest Sony add to its next generation. I would also suggest that Sony include some type of water resistance to the buds as well as a way to turn volume up or down by using the touch pad on the headphones. These are the only improvements I can suggest to make these truly wireless buds even better. I like how these buds reproduce sound, its bass and treble are excellent. Most of all, its battery performance is superb! I went on a camping trip and these buds lasted me on and off for 7 days! I also enjoy using the Google Voice assistant perfectly integrated. All in all, these Sony headphones will be traveling with me a lot, no more dangling cords! With 10 min quick charge for 90 min of play time - one cannot ask for more! I look forward to discover what else Sony has in their pockets for us in the future. These headphones were offered to me at a discounted price for my fair review and testing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really wanted to love these, but connection... I've had these for about a week, and although they sound good, the bluetooth connection to my iPhone Xs Max is dismal. They sometimes don't connect, and even when they do, the mic doesn't work. When I receive a call, the other end can't hear me, so I fumble with my phone to re-connect, but by the time I do, the other end has hung up. They work fine if I force a connect when I start using them, but that's not how they're intended to work. I really didn't want to get AirPod Pros, but I'll be looking at them now. How unfortunate, I really wanted to love these...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Ending Flashing Blue Lights Given my two star rating you might think I don't like these earbuds but you would be incorrect. I'm talking, by the way, about my brand new, Silver, WF-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Canceling Earbuds. I love these earbuds, the features, the app, the works. Pairing was incredibly easy. The app required some fiddling around with to work properly. That said, the earbuds work great. I used the app to activate Noise Cancelling, Ambient Sound, Sound Quality Mode, and DSEE HX (don't fear it it's incredibly cool). Will not explain these features as reading and learning about them yourself is part of the experience. I did learn that you can't explore the app unless you've made a bluetooth connection between your device and the earbuds. Once connected access to all of the app features falls into place. So why only two stars? Well, each earbud is equipped with a flashing blue light that never goes away. Amazon Product Support said it cannot be disabled. I have not received an answer from Sony yet, and yes, I did contact them. At night in a dark bedroom my head looks like a sign for an all night chili joint - it's that bright. My wife is ready to strangle me; they flash bright blue all night. I can't imagine air travel with these, especially at night. Fellow passengers would be irate; you know how friendly people on planes are these days. I'm fairly tech savvy and completely understand the operation of these earbuds but can't disable these lights. In addition, I have now logged-in about 40 internet hours and still there seems to be no fix. Summary: these are probably the best truly wireless earbuds on the market. The sound (the Primary and Most Important feature) is excellent. I do, however, consider this never-ending flashing blue light annoyance to be a product performance issue. It genuinely causes product use limitations. I travel considerably but won't be able to use these earbuds on an airplane. I've already stopped using them in bed. So, I'm probably now forced to return a product I really like and enjoy; too bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony - WF-1000XM3 These were my first wireless earbuds, and at first I was impressed by two things: the convenience of wireless and the sound quality of these earbuds - very impressive overall. HOWEVER, I could not find tips that were both comfortable and kept these somewhat large earbuds tightly in place. Maybe as a result of that, I found the sound cancelling element to be pretty inconsequential, especially when out on a walk or even in a coffee shop. (And when walking outdoors, you could hear even the slightest wind whistling). In fact, my old pair of wired Bose earbuds which fit more securely and more comfortably did as good or better than the Sony's in tamping down external noise. So in the end, I think the WF-1000XM3's are overpriced and thus I returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product but improvements needed Overall happy. Potential improvements: 1. The app should save the last settings 2. The transparency mode should amplify the sound more. 3. More controls should be added simultaneously at each bud (e.g. for the left bud volume up/ down + noise cancelling. 3. During the phone call more sound should be forced in so the person using the buds sound more normal to himself when talking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent....most of the time. These earbuds are amazing in all areas, they are comfy to wear for long periods, the noise cancelling is great, I can have the telly on full volume and not hear it if using the earbuds BUT they suffer from regular drop outs, only a very short time, almost like when you moved the lead on an old 3.5mm wired headphones. They struggle to connect 5/10 times. I have re-installed the app 3 times in 2 weeks. I keep thinking an update will sort it out but have only had 1 since buying them and that hasn’t helped. I’m just debating whether to escalate to Sony for a refund. When they work they are great if you can deal with those slight frustrations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in almost every way The Sound quality is top notch, I love everything about it. The ease of use, the controls, the app and all features that come with it have made it my favourite purchase of bluetooth earphones to date. They are pricey but absolutely worth, I love bass and loud devices when it comes to music and these pull through for me. Only thing I would say is to have the charging case be wireless for backwards charging on newer devices on phones. Would come in extremely convinient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product with compatibility issues in brand I bought these intending on using them around work and I assumed being a Sony product that it would be compatible with electronics of the same brand. I was completely let down that these $300 Sony earbuds have no issue connecting to devices and yet have software issues with their flagship device the PS4 Pro. This is not issues with missing parts or faulty tech but is simply a complete oversight on their part considering that it's simply programmed to not be compatible. This is completely unacceptable that these should work, and have everything to work together, yet I'm not allowed. Both products are able to get updated to work together and that's simply what I expect. I am spreading the word on Sony's compatibility anxiety and will not spread positive feedback until this issue has been addressed.

Decent foam plugs on regular IEM,s work better, and £ for £ will give better sound quality. The selling point though is the ease of use and freedom that comes with going wireless. Just make sure of what is important to you before deciding to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Them I don't usually use ear bud earphones as they tend to fall out of my ears. These on the other hand seem to stay in without any issues. There are several different size buds to choose from but I find the medium ones they came fitted with work fine. The sound is great and they feel really comfy. I thought that the lack of volume control would be an issue but I have used them connected to both my phone and Sony media player without any problems at all. When connecting to your phone you do have more choice as to your sound settings with the Sony sound app that can be downloaded.

There is a slight niggle with the app on iOS devices (sometimes the app won't connect to the earphones and you have to use the iPhone's own Bluetooth utility to connect) and there is no way to control volume on the earphones themselves - you have to use your phone or app. That said, these are the best in-ears I've ever owned, with good dynamics and an excellent sound stage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall, they're kinda worth it Seems like the vast majority of people are more likely to focus on the negatives in a review, because people love to complain. Someone who is happy with the product won't feel like taking the time to write a review, because why would they? So to anyone researching reviews online, like I was, take everything with a grain of salt. I was looking for something wireless, portable and most importantly, with good noise isolation/cancellation. These headphones were more or less the only option. Everything else in this category came with compromises (for me) - like not being truly wireless, mediocre sound quality, bad or no sound isolation, bad designs or atrocious longevity (some of the Bo*e stuff). Pros: Noise isolation and cancellation - like normal earbuds, I would say they remove 30-40% of sounds just with proper fitting ear tips, and a further 40% with the ANC on, witch is more than I expected Sound quality Weight Looks (not the physical shape, more on that below) and build quality Features (although some things don't seem to work - like the DSEE HX or "Focus on voice" witch doesn't do anything with normal voices in your proximity, it may work however with louder stuff like announcements, haven't tested that yet) Battery life Cons: Design/shape - although they look good, the shape is just not working for me (and many others); they stick out too much and even while walking, it feels like they bounce up and down, problem reported by some reviewers as well. It seems like the stem(?) is too long or the rubber thing that sits on the bottom of the ear too bulky. I may be able to mitigate this by cutting the tube of the ear tips a bit, so it goes down further, although I was hoping things like these won't be necessary after paying over $200. That being said, they may fit like a glove for other people. *Note: I'm pretty sure Sony is aware of how bulky they came out, so they rarely (or never) use actual devices in their presentation photos, they're all edited in and sometimes 50% smaller than the actual thing... Price (I guess they can kinda justify asking this much, as these are 1 of only 2 truly wireless earbuds with real ANC) It would have been fantastic if they were a bit more modular, like other devices in this category, so you could really get the best fit - arguably one of the most important things. Other than that though, they're pretty nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound Great. But get the simple things wrong. Positives: They sound really good. The noise cancelling is very effective. The case is well built and the magnet that snaps the earbuds is nice. Negatives: These are overengineered and poorly designed from a user experience. The touch sensitive controls were very finecky and I had a difficult time toggling between different sound modes and pausing. However, when the sensors graised my hoody or raincoat they would toggle instantly. My phone would randomly facetime people when I wore these. Maybe that's my phones fault, but I doubt it since I've never had this issue with any other pair of bluetooth headphones/earbuds. They would unpair randomly and sometimes not turn on. They constantly stuttured while I listened to music which totally threw me out of the ryhthm while listening to a song. The battery life was also very poor. It started at about 7-8 hours and dropped to about 2-3 hours after a months use. There is no volume toggle button on the earbuds. There are no buttons at all! I don't userstand the touch sensitive gimmick. It's just a less reliable button. I traded these in for the Jaybird Tarah Pro's so I could use a button again and not worry about inconsistent touch controls. They don't sound as good, but they never disconnect or facetime people. Don't buy these earbuds. They don't have all the kinks out yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly Perfect!! OK let me start out by saying are used to have the Sennheiser momentum true wireless earbuds. I had bought the original Sony 1000 ask but was not satisfied with the lack of noise canceling. I was hesitant when my Sennheiser’s began acting up to give the Sony is another shot. All I can say is I’m so glad I did! OK let me start out by saying are used to have the Sennheiser momentum true wireless earbuds. I had bought the original Sony 1000 X but was not satisfied with the lack of noise canceling. I was hesitant when my Sennheiser‘s began acting up to give the Sony is another shot. All I can say is I’m so glad I did!! This new generation of true wireless ear buds is nearly perfect. The sound is as good if not better than my old sennheiser‘s, the noise canceling has been greatly improved, battery life is outstanding, and overall these are just very complete package headphones. Let me first touch on sound quality. While I am not an audio nerd but I do listen to a fair amount of music in my commuting life and watch more than my fair share of movies on the airplane. The sound quality is crisp and clean and has a wide range that I’ve noticed. They sound as good if not better than my Sennheiser‘s did. I will hand Sennheiser the advantage in base out of the box, but that was soon fixed by just tweaking the EQ settings inside Sony is amazing app. Next the noise canceling is phenomenal. I was blown away with how much they cancel out. No they are not as good at canceling all external noise as an over ear headset would be, but I did not expect them to be nor do I care. I am a traveler and the size and comfort of ear buds has always been my priority. My old Sennheiser‘s did have a similar audio pass-through which to me I can tell very little difference when external noise is being pumped into the earbuds, however once you turn on noise canceling everything in the background seems to fade away. You will still hear noise with the noise canceling on but as soon as you start playing music or a movie even on a lower volume everything else fades away. Just last night I was testing and playing around with my new headphones and did not realize how loud the TV was until I took them out. I was watching my favorite show and could not hear a peep of any noise from the TV while the noise canceling was on. This is an incredible improvement over the first generation of 1000 X headphones. Be aware that a very secure fit is required to get the most out of the noise canceling, and it did take a decent amount of playing with the included your tips to find this, however now with the foam tips installed and various sizes I have a perfect seal which maximizes the noise canceling affects. I have not had a chance to really put battery life to the test, however from what I am saying what is advertised is turning to be true anything greater than four hours is plenty for me plus the case with so many extra charges Will make this battery last plenty long. Now while these are very fantastic and have blown me away, nothing is perfect and there are a few slight drawbacks, none of which will make me go to a different earbud. The first is the touch controls. Now before I get into this let me say that the actual ability of the touch controls and the way they respond to my finger works perfectly. What I wish is that there was a bit more in depth use of the touch controls. My old Sennheiser‘s I was able to play pause and change music, adjust the volume, access my phone assistant, change the pass-through audio settings, as well as pairing. With these Sony‘s, you have to pick one operation to assign to each earbud. This is not a dealbreaker, however I wish they had the ability to do more than just two things as well as adjust the volume on the headset. The second drawback seems to be the connectivity with the Sony app. I had no issues connecting the earbuds to my phone, but it seems that they lose connectivity to the app relatively easily. While it is usually as simple as a reconnection, it seems that sometimes the app cannot find the earbuds and needs to be restarted. I’m sure this is a simple software issue and will be fixed relatively easily, but it still exists and is slightly frustrating every now and then. Call quality is good but not great. Everyone can tell I’m using a headset but they can still hear me clearly so I guess this is kind of a wash but something to be aware of if you’re looking for an amazing call quality sounding headset. Overall these earbuds are a homerun and I am extremely happy with them. I would not change anything in the hardware, however it seems that some of the software can be updated and improved. The sound quality and noise canceling alone make them worth the purchase over any other earbud on the market. I have done a lot of searching before I decided on the Sennheiser’s and I’m so glad I made the switch to this new year bud from sun overall these earbuds are a homerun and I am extremely happy with them. I would not change anything in the hardware, however it seems that some of the software can be updated and improved. The sound quality and noise canceling alone make them worth the purchase over any other earbud on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't stay in... I swapped out Bose wireless buds for these because of bluetooth issues common to many with left bud connectivity issues. That said, the Bose buds, albeit Frankensteinish, stayed in snugly all the time. I used them primarily while working out and they would never fall out. The idea of noise cancelling in buds was appealing. I also have the latest Sony over ear headphones which are awesome. My main issue is that these Sony buds do not stay in. I've worn a handful of buds and these are the worst fitting I've had. I don't want sony respond with the fitting instructions. It does not help. I believe I need bigger attachments. I have tried them all but they consistently loosen up at the most subtle of movements and several times in the first week of wearing, I've had to either constantly adjust them to stay in or I have caught them as they are falling out. For $230 bucks I can't afford to lose one in a toilet or in the yard while mowing. I did buy a Best Buy additional warranty but these will likely have to go back. I have normal sized ears and I believe it is just a poor design. I realize these don't have wings and there a few tip options that come with but it needs a larger size and that may help. Sony, if you have any suggestions please let me know but otherwise will return here shortly. Again, please don't send a link for fitting instructions. That is not going to fix the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought these to use with my Walkman NW55 and they haven't disappointed. Upgrading the firmware proved more of a problem than it should as the Bluetooth connection kept on dropping out during the download, but got there eventually. Sound is good, but noise cancelling could be better. Certainly not on a par with Sony's WH-1000XM3 which I also own- but as the latter are over ear that's to be expected. I did take the time to try all of the supplied tips and found out that my right ear is smaller than my left- so please bare in my mind that both of your ears might not be the same size. I would recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound Quality Great but Microphone Terrible The negatives: using for calls is awful. The person on the other ends either complains of muffled very low sound, or that they hear background noises but not my voice... Totally unusable as a Bluetooth headset for calls unless in a totally silent room and you talk very loud and clear... In comparison to Airpods or even Google Pixel buds you can whisper and the caller hears you. The other annoying is the very audible sound it makes when switching ambient sound modes. The positive: great sound quality, fairly comfortable.

Takes a little getting used to but I'm now a convert to wireless. Can't comment on the noise cancelling (I bought these to replace ageing but excellent wired Audio Technica earbuds) as I've not been able to do any long flights (the main reason for the purchase) due to the lock down and travel bans. If I had one criticism it is the ridiculously short USB-C cable. Not everyone can charge within 15cm of a USB port!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible tech I bought these buds last month, but kept them 'til my birthday last week. They are quite sophisticated and complex for a 63 yr old to set up, but its a bit like setting your mobile to talk to your car via Bluetooth. It was also a little tricky to download the update (2.3) to the app, but in the end, I've managed to set both my iPhone and iPad to control the buds. I also managed to change the settings to control volume from tapping the right bud. The left bud controls the noise cancelling function. The sound quality is excellent; I have used Bose full cup headphones for the past 20 yrs, and they are approaching that level. They also have 360 deg sound function, which sadly needs the Sony app to run, and isn't linked to iTunes or Apple Music. They're not cheap, but they're a really good quality item, and I'm pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound. Really bad connections. Sound and noise canceling function is really great. I can’t go back to Apple’s ear phones for that part. But here is what I’m experiencing so far and why it’s 2 stars. I got this 4 weeks ago from Best Buy. 1. Device itself is really buggy. Sometimes I hear sound from only one side. From the beginning or it happens suddenly at the middle of songs. Sometimes it gets back in a few seconds but sometimes I need to put it back to the charger. 2. Bluetooth connection is also really buggy. Almost every time when I start using it, i have Bluetooth connection issues. Thus I have to put earbuds back to the charger and try it multiple times to get device connected to my phone/laptop. It’s really annoying. It happens over 50% of the time. 3. I think the touch panel on the ear buds still need improvements. When I switching from noise canceling mode to ambient, I tap left side but sometimes it doesn’t work and I have to wait a few seconds to retry of put it back to the charger. 4. I don’t know what to call this part but the rubber parts that get inside ears can be improved too... it came with two different types and 3-4 different sizes... one type had really strong bad chemical smells and none of them fit well. It hurts my ears so I needed to use the one from Beats. 5. It’s hard to report these issues. There is no option to select earphone device on Sony’s contact support page - I don’t know if my device is just broken or if this is what it’s supposed to be. I wanted to contact support first but it’s so hard that I gave up and decide to write a review. It’s great sounds so unfortunate that I can’t give good review. Couple of my friends were interested in getting this device but I didn’t recommend it due to the connection issues. If you are thinking about getting it, probably better to wait next version. This bugginess is really annoying but I still like the sounds so I’m keeping it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed! The ear buds look fantastic and the sound is great indoors but I principally bought them for walking to work and I've been disappointed with performance for that purpose. Firstly, the fit is less secure compared to the wired earphones I have and when walking it feels like they will pop out. Outdoors, the noise cancelation feature is also not as good as I was expecting having read the reviews. I've also experienced difficulties when using the call function with the caller complaining of interference and poor voice clarity. I took the earphones back to the shop to return them but they refused due to hygiene reasons. So I'm left regretting my choice as I could've opted for a cheaper alternative. Looks like I will restrict their use to indoors or when travelling.

I bought these at launch and they were great, sound quality, connectivity, audio quality in calls, etc. Now, they have consistent audio drops during music, podcasts, calls, you name it.

Would NOT recommend purchasing them until Sony pays attention to their products and gets this fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great concept and noise canceling, bad execution Sound: They sound great. As all Sony headphones do. That goes without saying. HOWEVER. You cannot use these headphones to run or walk on a windy day. Even with ambient sound off you can hear so much wind and it frowns out your music. Build quality: the design looks professional and the rose gold accents really help make the headphones look more premium Comfort and fit: Here is where I began to regret the purchase. Any activity other than stationary weight lifting or sitting down on the couch and the headphones will fall out. Forget trying to shoot around on a basketball court. (Without defenders) I know they aren’t made for rigorous activity but cmon at least let me jog a little bit. Or shoot around without having to panic and catch an earbud mid shot. Great idea. Just bad execution. Will return and get airpods

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Headphones I've been using these headphones for a couple of weeks. Although they may appear to look an awkward fit they do actually fit quite well and hold in place. Operating the touch controls on the outside of the earbuds works well once you've got used to them. Sound reproduction is also excellent although i found the setting with ambient noise on to be a little tinny. This could probably be improved by changing the equaliser settings but this seems like a lot of fuss every time. Battery life is very good which should be expected of a new product. What it is like after 6 months....who knows. I like the case design and feel.

Should've learned my lesson after buying the mdr-zx770bn, same issue with call quality. Sony of you are reading this, please fix it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, and amazing sound I bought it some weeks ago, I am so impress by sound quality, the Sony connect apps is as well really good, and make the sound even better in any situation. Only part not perfect is the noise cancelling in phone call, not as good as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and sound but one big let down I got a pair of the WF-1000XM3's a couple of days ago and I have some things to say about them. The sound quality that you get right out of the box is phenomenal and that doesn't happen very often at least not for me. The features that they have are great. I love using them when I can and it amazes me the difference between letting the ambient sound in and turning noise cancelling on. The one thing that let me down big time about these was the noise cancelling. I had hopes/expectations and they just weren't met. I was expecting them to have the same degree of noise cancelling as the headphone variant the WH-1000XM3 but it wasn't even close. I understand that they are in ear headphones but its just was I was expecting it being the in ear headphone variant. In some environments is was fine but in others, it was just like a pair of normal non noise cancelling ear buds. A lot of normal ear buds that I've used that don't have noise cancelling, I found to be better at blocking out the noise than these. The ear tips that they came with did not fit my ears. They came with small, medium and large silicone and comply foam ear tips and none of them fit. I had to use a pair from another pair of ear buds that I had and that made it better but still not the best. It was also difficult to find the right fit for me. I had to fiddle around with them to get them in the right position in my ear. The battery life is exactly what Sony says it is. I would say if you are choosing between the headphone or earbud variant, I would spend the extra money and get the headphones. You'll get your moneys worth and also better performance. For me the WF-1000XM3's are not worth the $230 price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sound quality great but noise cancelling poor sound quality is great, as can be expected but noise cancelling is somewhat poor and not at all what reviews online have boasted. the volume has to turned really high in order to not be able to hear any surrounding noise and cars and train noise is not cancelled. It is still a work in progress and offers what other brands aren't able to yet so it is still something i'd buy again but i hope future versions are improved, particularly for the price point they are at. the look incredibly sleek, though they do bulge out a fair bit and for my small ears, they can look odd. connects easily to previously paired devices but i've been having trouble to my laptop. deep bass, amazing range and can be altered to suit the user on the app!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! Best Noise Cancelling ear buds I bought these on Black Friday and have been using them ever since. I got 6 days of use out of them before needing to recharge the case. The noise cancelling is best in class (it's from Sony so you expect the best). They are comfy and you get good noise isolation with the silicon tips. Very well worth the price. I did have some problems with the connection and had to unpair/repair the earbuds. The NFC on the case is helpful with this and made it very easy to pair. One feature that I would like a small update is that you can only see the charge levels of the earbuds and case if they are in use and via the Sony headphones app. The Apple setup allows you to only view the charge levels when the earbuds are in the case. This is the opposite to Sony. I'd love to have both!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Wireless & Truly Superb! These headphones were recommended to me by the Curry’s salesman, as i was in-store to repair/replace my B&O E8 Truly Wireless headphones ... and i cannot thank the salesperson enough, as these are quite simply AMAZING! The sound is awesome, so detailed and precise, the buds look like they are quite big and chunky, but in actual fact they are perfect size and fit so well and easily in the ears. The battery life is fantastic, it really is 24 hours, just as Sony have said. The ease of use is very simple, using Sony’s app “connect” These earbuds truly are the best sounding, the best fitting and overall the best truly wireless earbuds on the market right now. A Truly 5* product, and well worth every penny of their price! A huge Congratulations to Sony on creating such a brilliant product, well done Sony! A VERY VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade I have both WF-1000x and WF-1000xM3. After getting the WF-1000xM3 I only use the first one for audiobooks. The WF-1000xM3 have superior noise cancellation, superior sound quality and outstanding battery life. I do have one annoying issue, which is actually why I write this review, hoping someone in Sony's app development team will read it. Why can't I have the app store my settings. Normally, I use my plugs in the same condition every day, and my default selection is nc off and ambient sound not enabled. However often I select this, the next time I am using them, it is back on, and I need to start the app to turn it off. Please make an option for storing a default selection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, not always stable though The sound quality is amazing, the noise cancelling not as good as my over head Bose, but i expected as such from in war variants. One issue i have found, whilst they stay in my ears when sitting still, they do not stay in well whilst out walking. For this reason, i have had to deactivate the buttons on the units as i kept pausing music etc Not a bad product, but i feel more work needs to be done on the units staying in ears

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs improvement for the price tag My first set I had to return after about 5 days due to the right ear piece just cracking and blipping now and again, probably every 10 minutes. Second set, I was listening to music and the whole thing just had a spasm and music stopped, it was stuck on a strange beep, then powered off, turned themselves back on, and then I could continue listening again. Finally. The copper coloured top on the charging case, is very soft and poor quality; it scratches so so easily, feel the have to wrap them in bubble wrap. Only reason I’m being persistent with them is because I want the in-ear bud active noise cancelling, and amazing sound quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bluetooth issues and bad seal, won't stay in ear.. I got this when it first came out. Immediately I noticed how nice the ANC was. It wasn't as good as the WH-1000XM3; however, it is the best I have heard on earbuds. I hit TWO MAJOR issues: 1. The issue is that the earbuds do NOT connect up to all Windows 10 Computers. 2. Earbuds do not seal well in ear and even when sitting OK, a simple low pace walk will eventually shake the earbuds loose. So these really can only be used while sitting at a desk etc... At that point I would go to wired or WH-1000XM3 over these. One of these is a showstopper, having both means BAD DESIGN all over by Sony... Updates on the earbuds didn't fix the linkage to the windows 10 Computer in a good way. They connected but the sound quality is noticeably different than when connected to a phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Music on Android = Good, Everything Else = BAD!!! I have tried every imaginable pair of “studio”, wired headphones, and always come back to my tried and true MDR7506s. I demoed wireless, noise cancelling, over-the-ear headphones from every major manufacturer and I chose with the WH-1000XM3s. I love them! I was so excited when the WF-1000XM3s came out (even more excited when I could actually find a pair available to purchase). Then I got them… and I am entirely disappointed. They really do sound good. They are a little beefy, but fit well. However, every other aspect of these headphones is lacking, if not entirely awful! They will not stay paired with Windows for more than 30-40 seconds (in identical environments where my WH-1000XM3s work perfectly - and yes, I am running 1.3.0), so they are relegated to only be used with my Android devices. There is extreme latency no matter what platform I pair them to, so I cannot use them for watching video. Finally, the call quality is atrocious!!! The mics cut in and out, and when they do work people tell me I sound like I am in a wind tunnel, when I am actually sitting in my perfectly quite living room. There was a long wait to get these… Maybe Sony should have made us wait a little longer and released a product that does not suck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could be good: fit is poor The provided ear tips are not very good at all. They provide minimal isolation (yes I tried all 7 size / type combinations). This makes everything sound a little far away, less lively. It becomes less noticeable at higher listening levels. For comparison I'm using Shure SE215 earbuds with the black foam tips. The SE215s are like wearing 22-25dB reduction earplugs while the Sony's are more like wearing just headphones. Other features: Pairing worked as expected. The sensors to tell if you remove one from your ear work well. Touch buttons are okay. They take some getting used to since you can't feel your way around or you'll activate the button. The fact that you have to wait to connect every time you open the app on iOS is a bit annoying. If you can use the ear controls, they are definitely faster. I've ordered some comply foam ear tips which will hopefully help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They'd be mediocre if they worked. I like to leave reviews that are thoughtful and not biased by anger but this has been the most frustrating experience with a piece of technology I have ever had. Let's be clear, the purpose of earbuds is to connect to something and make noise. These do the opposite of that. Connecting is not difficult my phone, laptop, computer, watch, and everything else connect fine. The NFC chip speeds it up more. These buds do not, however, stay connected long enough to regularly finish a song. On top of that, the app does not recognize that they're connected to my phone if I've already connected them. I have to disconnect them, open the app, and then search for them while they're still in the case. There's definitely more things that are frustrated but those are minor in comparison to the literal inability to use them. The sound quality is good but max volume is quiter than average. Battery life is great. Sony has tried to tell me the connection issues are battery related. Sony is wrong; I haven't been able to use them for more than five minutes and the app says they are fully charged. My final note is on Sony themselves. Sony has the worst customer service I have ever experienced. I have spent 7 hours trying to get these, at the very least, repaired. That's enough time for me to have bought another pair. I would be fine with these problems if they'd solve them but Sony Is clearly incapable of response. I am frustrated and feel robbed. Please don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great when I finally got used to them They come with one set of buds fitted and 6 other sizes to try. I tried the larger size, but it was uncomfortable and ended up using the original ones. I occasionally have a problem fitting my right one, but I always get it right. They are comfortable and the noise cancelling works well. I have ambient sound on when walking, but, because of lockdown haven’t really had that many people or cyclists around to notice how well that works. I find the USB cable ludicrously short, the storage box just dangles when I use it, so I use my phone charger instead. I also think that one of the buds should automatically come with volume control, rather than having to set it up on the app. They connected very easily to my. Android phone, iPad and PC. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want discreet noise cancelling, look no further I’ve has my eyes on these for a while, as I wanted something a bit more discreet to wear out n about. The white ones that everyone wears around allow too much ambient noise in and the noise cancelling version are ridiculously overpriced. I’ve always been a fan of Sony Ericsson and Sony mobile music Bluetooth earphones and these do not disappoint. Clear sound that can be adjusted with the app based equaliser and the adaptive noise cancelling feature works very well. There are different earbuds to help fit your ear canals to help isolate external sounds, and overall it does a good job for something this small The only gripe I have is on windy days, there can be a bit of wind noise around the ears, but I guess that’s the price you pay for not having headphones. Overall, I’m happy with the product and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality, Horrible connectivity I bought these the day they were released. The quality and noice cancelling is great for true wireless ear buds. My biggest issue is that for blue tooth 5.0 connectivity it does not connect properly to my iPhone XS Max. Everytime I am on a phone call, it looses connection and the caller is unable to hear me or is very soft. Some times they work and are clear, many times I have to take off my headphone because they can not hear me. Conclusion: great for music, bad for phone calls...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I came in thinking about the Sennheiser momentum earbuds, but I am extremely glad I waited for the Sony Xm3. I also had a set of Bose soundsport earbuds. They were great as far as soundstage and musicality. I ended up losing them thus my recent purchase. Only complaint is no volume controls on the earbuds. Otherwise, Sony rock on!9

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I see you, Sony So, I have complete idiots for neighbors. They're "gangsta" because they play all their terrible music really loud. Well, I make music (and don't feel the need to preview it to my neighbors), so I bought these in hopes that the noise cancelling would work very well and that it would pair with my Surface. 2/2 Grand Slam. These are perfect for what I bought them. They last well through a session AND as an added bonus reproduce very flat without any adjusting of the EQ through the Sony app, so they work great for mixing! It's kind of weird to get used to real wireless experience and I'm finding it hard to break habits of being connected, but yeah, buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise cancelling ear buds WF-1000XMS I bought this 4 months ago and have used it continuously during this time. Many good features re sound quality, battery life, easy of recharging and connectivity but spoilt by the ineffectiveness of noise cancelling which is almost nonexistent. I have used the over ear version of this product and found the noise cancelling so effective that it was dangerous while cycling that I stopped using them. No such danger with the ear bud version however. ..... excellent sound quality but terrible noise cancelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect After reading a lot of reviews..a lot!..I went for these as an accompaniment to my daily commute. 2 weeks in and they are almost perfect. Great sound, great fit, Fab features. The only feature I cannot use is the ambient sound control, as I find the sound cuts out for a second every time the headset detects a change to the ambient sound. Whilst this isn't too intrusive, it feels an annoyance considering the cost of the product The only reason I haven't taken them back yet is I'm hoping for an update to allow seamless playback with this feature turned on, or feedback from Sony to tell me this isn't normal and my set is faulty Otherwise, top product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding sound quality & great features Being an audiophile these are one of the best audio quality earphones I have ever heard. Its been 2 weeks since I bought them & every day I get to like them more & more. Apart from the sound quality the self integrated Google assistant take these buds to another level of excitement & fun to operate. I have been bose user for years and I think giving a try to Sony was the best move I made in 2019. Totally satisfied with the performance & quality, plus these are made in Malaysia & not China that further adds to the genuinity. My only concern is the kind of matte finish case which cannot be cleaned for some stains like in my case which got ballnpoint ink stains & my every attempt to clean them were failed. Good work Sony keep it up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hi-Fidelity Speakers in a Compact Earbud Size 1) A true noise cancelling headphone packed into a compact earbud size. These earbuds are an audiophile's dream come true. When you put these on and activate noise cancelation you are totally immersed in the sound you are listening to. With just the touch of a finger you can hear somebody speaking to you and when you take your finger away the blissful sound of music returns with no background noise. 2) Adaptive sound control is a great feature and the app allows for fine tuning for greater control. Whether you are road cycling on a major route, walking, running, doing yard work, a passenger in an automobile, on your daily commute to work via train, or flying on to your dream vacation; the adaptive sound control can sense what you are currently doing and will allow more or less noise cancelling as needed. It is also active and switches modes automatically as needed if you have this feature turned on in the app. 3) The size of the earbuds are a little bit bulkier than average. However, the quality and features packed into the size of the product certainly make up for this right way when you first hear the sound from these little speakers. They do fit well within the ear and there is not much of an issue of having them fall out as long as they are inserted properly. They do come with several different sizes of gel like ear pieces, and then the conventional style sizes to choose from. 4) They work with Google Assistant, Siri, and thanks to the latest firmware update Alexa has been added. 5) Sound quality coming from these little guys is just truly amazing. I don't think anything will ever beat a true quality set of over the ears. However, if you are a music buff, or just enjoy quality sound these are for you. The frequency response of these speakers is breath taking. Listening to soprano tracks of Whitney Houston voice capable of 5 octaves is a great testament to what the highs and mids and do for these speakers. As for the bass, I have NEVER heard such punching full deep sound from such a compact device. I'm still trying to fathom how they engineered that seeing how they need air displacement for the driver to generate deep crisp bass like these little guys do. You won't find another pair of earbuds that sound this good as of right now. 6) Battery life is great, I can play them all afternoon and still have a charge left. Toss them in the case and they are ready to go at 100% again in no time. The case itself can recharge the earbuds about 6 times without a recharge. Now thanks to the latest firmware you can tell how much battery level is left in the case via the app. 7) Sony's Engineering and Dev team is paying attention! Thank-you! The biggest downfall had seemed to be some people wanting volume control as a touch feature on the earbud itself. You could only control the volume via the device you were connect to, most likely a cell phone. In the latest firmware just release Sony has recognized this and allows the user to just this feature by toggling it on via the app. However, you must do without a different feature such as touch to talk. The fact that they came out with an answer to this problem and a few others so quickly shows they are still very competitive in the field of engineering and while the price may be a little higher, the quality of this product certainly makes up for it two fold!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding quality Overall quality is outstanding, I am expecting this to be very good due to the price however after using the headphones together with Sony headphones connect I am more than amazed with the quality that I got. Sound quality is superb and bass is heavy, noise cancelling cancels out all the ambient sound (around 95% which leaves only people's loud voice near you) and headphones can be configured to control volume/playback/noise cancelling. Only disadvantages I could see are product design (Headphone size are quite huge compared to competitors) and no IP rating which might not be suitable for workouts.

NC works well, nothing that will blow ur mind but it's good feature to have for better music experience. They fall out if ears way too easily, they should definitely have some grabby thing so they wouldn't fall out. No water resistance is another biig minus. I wish to buy some other pair because of sound quality when they r not sticking well in and lack of water res that makes me worrying. I also prefere buttons instead of touch pads waay more as touch pads are being clicked when u have cap or something on ur head. Very inconvenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound & Noice Cancelling I wanted a set of wireless earbud headphones and after researching the field chose the Sony WF-100XM3, based on the high sound quality and noise cancelling feature. I've now used them for a couple of weeks, including rail and air travel. I have been pleased with the sound quality across a wide range of music and have been impressed with the active noise cancelling capabilties. Aircraft noise was very significantly reduced compared to passive noise exclusion when using plain in-ear buds. I've also found the option to control the transparency for ambient noise useful in quieter environments where it has been useful to hear what's happening around me e.g. doorbell. The only negative point experienced to date is the audio latency relative to video experienced when using the headphones to listen to the TV, or for gaming. This is a problem with Bluetooth. In this respect its a shame that the device doesn't support use of the latest aptX, low-latency codec.

I picked them up and found them to be pretty amazing when checking them out that night. The next morning I popped them in and they connected and about 2 seconds later the left earbud bricked itself. I tried everything I could find to fix the issue. I ended up having to return them and come to find out they are backordered. I was completely bummed out by this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound! Great comfort! Great noise cancellati I bought this about a month ago and I have nothing bad to say about them. The sound is great with strong bass and clarity. Bass level is adjustable via the app. I set to about mid way and I love it. I personally listen to rock and metal music. Bumping the bass way up would be nice for hip hop I think. The fitting is great. They come with a few sets of ear tips. Just make sure you find one that fits properly. This ensures proper fitting and sound isolation. Overall, they’re very comfortable. The sound cancellation works well. It’s not as strong as the WH-1000XM3, but I actually prefer that as I get a headache with those really strong sound cancellation headphones. Having said that, sound cancellation works as advertised and it’s great! The touch controls are great as well. Sensitive enough and easy to navigate. I love how holding the left ear control will activate ambient sound so you can have a conversation with someone without having the need to take off your earphones. Using it as a headset for calls is ok. Not as good as the AirPods (I have an iPhone). I can hear the other party clearly, but it seems the other party have difficulty hearing me at times if I don’t speak loud enough. Overall, these are great earphones and I enjoy them a lot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise cancelling unsatisfactory I purchased this wireless headphone primarily for noise canceling feature. I already have WH-1000 XM3 which has an outstanding noise canceling. I needed smaller one for outdoor activities and travel. This is a huge disappointment. Noise canceling is barely noticeable. Most of the nose that is virtually gone with WH is not affected at all with WF. This is not even close to what my old Bose earplug headphones can do. Unless I received a defective unit this should not be advertised as noise canceling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb, but with flaws What can I say about these that hasn't already been said, Fantastic build quality, the fit and finish are excellent, phenomenal noise cancelling (yes WAY BETTER than Bose over ear and in ear.) and most importantly great sound quality (again better than Bose.) I find the controls to be logical and intuitive, but that said, they are not always responsive. Sometimes when I click the left bud to switch to ambient/noise cancel, it doesn't always register. At times it doesn't respond at all. Seems like they need another firmware update to get this working right 100% of the time rather than 80%. The sound is excellent for a non-audiophile product. Great clarity and detail, decent bass response and great balance. The only complaint I have is that they don't always get loud enough with music. The upper limit seems too quiet by about 10 dB. I'm not trying to blast the sound, I'm just trying to get it to a level that is 'fun' to listen to. It's just not going to happen with these, almost necessitating a separate option for rocking out. With those niggles out of the way I will say this; These are the best truly wireless earbuds on the market by a fairly wide margin! With the promise of firmware updates I'm sure some of these issues(if not all) can be solved relatively easily. All in all a solid A- performance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headphones ruined by Bluetooth Issues These earbuds are beautifully designed and the sound quality is amazing... When the Bluetooth connection actually works, which is rarely. The music will stop and the left bud will chime and the connection drops. Furthermore, I have to use the app to get the connection back. Once it is re-established it takes a minute before I can get the music going again. This process happens multiple times per hour which ruins all the positive things these earbuds have going for them. I want to love these but right now it is very frustrating to use them. I would hold off on getting them until the connection issues are fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but misses the mark I have a large array of headphones and earphone ranging from Sennheiser HD660s to Apple Airpods. I was eagerly awaiting the release of the WF1000XM3 as it seemed like the perfect multipurpose earphones. The WF1000XM3 case is about double the size of the airpods, but lack in two major areas. First, no wireless charging and second, the case is made of IMHO very cheap plastic. At $230 the case is a complete joke, not to mention you are unable to check the charge level of the charging case. The earphones themselves are fairly nice, but lack volume control. For iOS this is not an issue as the volume controls are tied into the iOS controls, but for Android you have Bluetooth volume and device volume. This results in two volume adjustment points. The only way to adjust the device volume (wf1000xm3) on Android is through the app. This becomes a major inconvenience when watching videos. Overall I really want to keep and like the wf1000xm3, but at this price point they are not worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition to the WH-1000XM3 I am a longtime commuter user of the WH-1000X3 and was looking for a lightweight replacement for the summer months. I have a collection of TWS earphones and while the Airpods are so far the best in terms of connection stability and ease of use, the Sony WF-1000XM3 make up for it in almost every other area. Yes, they are bulky and yes, their (Qualcomm?) Bluetooth connectivity is not as stable or convenient for iOS device users. BUT, the sound quality, the subtle but effective noise cancelling and secure fit won me over. I wish they had a better status indicator for the remaining battery life of the charge case (and wireless charging for the case would be a great plus, too) but once I put them in, I can easily get lost in the excellent sound stage, powerful bass response and smooth mid and high frequencies. By far my favorite TWS so far, bravo Sony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best on the market...but not perfect yet. I have used the WF-1000XM3 for a bit short of a month now, and I love them. What I really appreciate is the quality of sound and the battery life. Pairing is also quite smooth and immediate, especially with an Android phone, however I find the device a bit too sensitive to electromagnetic interference; I experience short cuts and static noises while in a crowd and/or in the metro (downloaded music, therefore no coverage issue)... yes, I have "Priority on Sound Quality" in the settings, and I don't think the user should compromise on quality to have connection stability. Doesn't happen with the WH-1000XM3, that I also own, even if the codec is more "demanding"on the over-the-hear model. I find the Noise Cancelling performance outstanding; when it comes to Ambient Sound, there is no comparison with the WH. Less related to the device, but more of a personal matter, in spite of the numerous replacement tips options, I couldn't find one that fits me 100%. Nevertheless, I would buy them again.

Connection to the source and between buds has been 100% reliable, really nothing to complain about. I wish they would go louder but this might have something to do with the source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unstable Bluetooth I was really looking forward to these from all the things I read in advance media. I’ve been running Jabra Elites and have been quite happy with them; the biggest shortcoming was the lack of dimension in the sound. The Sonys fixed that right out of the box. The sound is full, textured and pretty awesome. Very good bottom and mid-range. I use these a lot for walking around San Francisco. Biggest complaint is the unstable Bluetooth. The feed keeps going out for a second or two, then coming back. I read all the advice in Support and couldn’t find a solution. The Jabras never fail, but I want better sound. Has anybody else run across this problem?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible headphones After trying several different models of true wireless earbuds from other companies and having a ton of audio drop outs and connection issues, I decided to spend a bit more and go for the WF1000XM3, and I'm SO glad I did! Unlike a lot of other true wireless ones, each bud pairs independently to your phone and I think this greatly improves the connection (you can also adjust them to favour connection strength over sound quality in the app). I've had *maybe* 3-4 drop outs in my month of near-constant use, which is frankly incredible. I was a bit skeptical about the noise cancelling, having never really been a fan before. However, having taken a few long international flights lately, it was a real godsend! Takes out all the low-end hum and ruble from planes and tube journeys. Some reviews are correct in mentioning that wind across the microphones cause a lot of noise, and for the most part I leave the noise cancelling off for day-to-day running around (I find they let just enough outside noise in to be aware of your surroundings), but it's a killer feature to have handy when travelling. The fit is really nice, low-profile and secure for most moving around, though if you're after something for working out, these aren't the ones. Arguably most important is the sound, and they do not disappoint! The sound is balanced and punchy, with clear highs and defined bass with a great soundstage. I do a small bit of tweaking in the in-app EQ, but even without the sound is beautifully balanced. I was also pleasantly surprised that Sony has now made it possible to increase/decrease the volume via touchpad, a feature that wasn't vital but something the was a bit of letdown to see not included in the original launch. Battery life is pretty solid, about what it says on the tin. Leaving NC off really helps, but they are quick to charge, as is the case itself. They aren't the cheapest option, but they are incredible performers for the money, and if music is an important part of your life, these are worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Mistake! Noise Canceling is Misleading Purchased these headphones over the Apple Pods because of the Sony Name, Reputation for Quality and Customer Support. Big Mistake. I am a very cautious electronics buyer. Experience with Plantronics, Apple, etc and did a good amount of research before buying these headphones. The WF-1000XM3 headphones pick up EVERY drop of background noise when you are talking on the phone. If you want noise canceling to hear music only, I'm sure you can find something as good - at a much more competitive price. Sony will not stand behind nor support the fact that they are sold as a Premium Headphone experience for both Music and Telephone (after all that is what they are primarily connected to). Additionally, they do not work well with Apple. You must download the app, which always has to be reset with the headphones and phone to work properly. So disappointed - please don't get yourself cornered in the same position - $250.00 in the garbage. A $50 LG headset out performs these in quality and noise control by 100%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but yet to be convinced by noise cancelling Just bought. Great fit and excellent at home with low levels of volume. Outside, I’m not yet impressed by the noise cancelling..... need to use more to see whether I’m disappointed. I realise that “over ear” will always be better but didn’t realise the gulf!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, AWFUL call quality The packaging and materials are very nice, the amount of ear bud foamy things are terrific to help you find the best fit, the app is built to a higher standard than people build their products, and the fit and finish are great. The sound is superb, some of the best I've ever experienced and the app displays features that are unbelievably impressive. The use of the flat track touch pad on the side of them requires a small learning curve and whenever you mess with it too much they might fall out of your ears. But the call quality is so bad that is sounds like you're underwater or in a bathtub. Don't even bother trying to be on the phone while driving, you might as well be in a tornado. Purchased these for phone calls and quality. I got 50% of what I was hoping for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is too low After the last update, my earbuds are too low. I checked if I have noise limiter but it's just not loud enough. I like to listen to music very loud but it isn't possible with this earphones. Also, I can't use it with my computer because it stutters too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An honest review Ive owned both the WF-1000X and the WF-1000XM3 set of earbuds. Let me start by saying, I have also owned 7 different brands of true wireless earbuds directly competing with these. The WF1000XM3's blow the competition out of the water when it comes to sound quality and the ability to customize the sound to your own preference. BUT. There are two major flaws. 1) they do not stay in your ears, and i dont have abnormal sized ears. I understand they arnt made for working out or lots of movement with your head, but these things fall out just sitting in a chair! I would go as far as to say they stay in even worse than the old WF-1000X. 2) the connection cuts out, not as bad as the the previous model, but still bad, sometimes even when the phone is 2 feet away from my head laying in bed. You may be thing, its my phone, but its not. I had the Samsung S9+ and now Im using the Note 9. These 2 things ruin these earbuds. I want to add, The solution is not to bring them beck to Best Buy and get a new pair, ive done that 4 times with the old ones and twice with these. Same problems every time. Until Sony takes steps into fixing these issues, I will have to switch to something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality but pathetic Call quality I bought this product just over 2 weeks ago and so far I am digging it. There's no comparison when it comes to the sound quality ensuing from it whatsoever and the fit is great too. In retrospect I feel like I have been duped when it comes to call quality which I'm very sad to say considering this top product otherwise. The amount of disturbance my callee's have endured is beyond my understanding. Either you are standing or walking out in the streets or on a train platform; horrendous! I am absolutely hopeful they have software that can fix this issue else I'm going to absolutely regret spending the £200 on it. It is my belief and I'm sure you agree with me that if you're willing to spend this kind of money for something like this you would a 100% expect it to work flawlessly. But this one major flaw is a big blow of its own. Another small thought I'd like to share about it's functionality is that I would more satisfied if Sony could integrate the features (ambient/noise cancelling, playback, Google/Alexa assistant) better than how it sits currently where you need to choose either of the functions and not benefit from the rest. Maybe integrate playback and assistant as default (with the exception of switching between the assistants as per preference) and then have the other cool functions available on the other piece. All in all and also in short love the product but it's got this one major downside and people do need to consider before buying is the call quality. Especially since they did not advertise that aspect or provide a solution yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not cancel any noise whatsoever! I bought these 2 weeks ago and they are totally ineffective at cancelling noise. I have tried the different ear pad sizes, different settings and different locales. The music sound quality was ok but it cancelled NOTHING! The cool magnetic case is the only redeeming quality of these earphones. (Oh yeah, they also fall out super easily - even when just sitting stationary- so be prepared to go searching for them or to bid one of them bye-bye.). Save your money and go with regular earbuds - you will get exactly the same experience. Ok sound quality and no noise cancelling. I expected much better from you, Sony. This product is not as advertised!

I find it difficult to get a good fit in my ears, even after trying the different tips supplied. Wasn’t too impressed with the effectiveness of the noise cancelling function but the overall sound was good. Get occasional drop out which can be irritating. To be fair I am comparing the sound quality and noise cancelling effectiveness to my Bose QC35 headphones so given that they are earbudsI am perhaps being harsh. Good build quality and the battery life is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very disappointing I bought this sony MF-1000XM3 from best buy in October 2019 and my experience with it is disappointing. Playing music is good which I don’t have problem. My concern is phone calls receiving and calling I have so much noise from the other end, and they also complain about the same noise from my end and most often it drops calls . further more it is difficult to stay put in my ears which I have tried the ear tips given. I don’t want to compare this product to other competitors. I had wanted to return the product to best buy but I have exceeded their return policy. Am going to call sony if they will accept a return or an exchange.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great noise cancellation, terrible call quality I've been using these daily at work and on my commute for about a week now. I can say that listening to podcasts and music on these is fantastic. The noise cancellation works great, and I makes a huge difference. I like the configurability of the ambient sound control as well. The single biggest problem with these is that they are basically useless for phone calls. Literally every single time I took a call w/ them (all in a quiet meeting room, I might add), the person on the other end of the line could not hear me at all. They told me it constantly sounded choppy and broken up. Every single time, I had to resort to turning these off and just using my phone directly. I've also tried recording my voice using the Voice Memo app on my phone to verify that it wasn't a phone connection issue. The recording sounded truly terrible. @Sony - This is not an acceptable user experience. Has anyone at Sony even tried using these for phone calls? How did they allow the release of this product w/ such a huge problem? Please fix this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One and Only Noise Canceling Buds If you are looking for the perfect wireless earbuds that include every single feature from wireless charging, small, compact and portable, waterproof, all day battery, multiple audio coding formats, durable and stays in your ears then it has yet to arrive, but in the meanwhile the Sony WF-1000XM3's are the best of the bunch in my opinion and here is why: The only truly wireless earbuds with active noise canceling, yes they are not the Sony WH-1000XM3 but the Sony WF-1000XM3 offers a decent experience when it comes to blocking those outside noisy environments and you can adjust how much ambient noise you want to hear through the Sony Headphones app. The battery life has been very good so far with active noise canceling on, I would say I do get the rated 6 hours on one charge and I love how the earbuds tell you how much juice they have when you first put them on through an audible voice letting you know the percentage and when they are paired. Talking about charge, one downside is that there is no indicator on the charging case that tells you how much charge there is left on the charging case, there is only a red light indicator when you plug it in to charge through USB-C cable and did I say USB-C, finally an industry must when it comes to cables not some propietary Lightning or yesterday's micro USB connections. The form factor of the earbuds is not bad, they tend to stay in my ears with the right sized earbud tips that are included with so many options and different materials to choose from also, they do sometimes feel like they are coming loose after a while, but they have yet to completely pop out of my ears. One thing that is not clear is if they are water resistant, by the looks of the Sony marketing material these are suited for your casual business or just walking outdoors type individual, so do not take them out in the rain and be weary if you sweat a lot during workouts. I think it is time to wrap up this review with the most important aspect of any headphone, the sound. The Sony WF-1000XM3 sound is balanced, the highs, mids and bass are all excellent and you can tweak the equalizer settings using the Sony Headphones app. I like to listen to my music at loud volumes which probably is not the best for your ear health, and one thing I noticed is that these wireless earbuds are not very loud even at the highest setting. So, if you are looking for one of the better premium options of truly wireless earbuds these Sony WF-1000XM3 deserve a buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, bad software. These earphones are great at cancelling most noise in busses or trains and the sound from them is great. The headphones do have a problem where they keep on cutting out for half a second which you get used to after a while but i hope it is fixed in a future update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with my purchase I have only had these a few days. I first bought Bose truly wireless earbuds and did like those except for the fact they protruded out of my ears too much for my liking & also the buttons were hard to mash on the Bose. So i returned those & purchased these Sony ones and I love these. My first issue with these at first was that Sony Headphones app sucks. I dont feel like the app itself has many features or video tutorials. It looks outdated in my opinion & simply doesn’t match the quality of their great headphones. I also had issues at first with pairing these to my macbook. They wouldn’t popup on my laptop but I learned you have to hold your fingers on the Left & Right earbud touch pads at the same time for 7 seconds to initiate pairing mode. They instantly popped up on my bluetooth list. These are noise canceling when I pair them with my iphone. I can hear a little background noise when I use on my Macbook though even when the volume is maximized. Last issue with these is that there is no way to adjust volume on them directly, you must use your phone, watch, or laptop to increase/decrease noise level. Not too big of an issue for me though I guess. Great quality & overall I am satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I bought this 3 months ago and I am impressed by the sound quality and functionality of these IEMs. The great sound and the different noise cancelling settings sets this apart from other BT IEMs. The only downside would be some tech issues like a volume difference between the set volume and the volume the IEM plays in the first second or two of playing music. The bluetooth connectivity is also an issue as it can be intermittent both in a crowd and in an open area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from impressive headphone Pros: - Bass is superb - sound quality is crisp, more to bright side - noise cancelling as marketed to be the best in class, good enough for me, can't expect it to be the same quality of over/on ear headphones - features and apps are easy to use - great battery life - no issues with bluetooth connection. - able to use one side while charging other side, useful for roadtrips - quite comfortable for my ear Cons: - Headphone design looks outdated/cheap compared to some other headphones in the same class - Quite huge in size, not possible to lie down on my side while putting on the headphone without interfering with the touch sensor - No IP ratings makes me hesitate to go to the gym using it. - Quite bulky case makes it difficult to fit into the pocket of some of my pants, but not really an issue for me as it compensates with more battery life than other headphones which is more important in my case - Bad call quality, the other person can hardly understand me - Ambient sound does not feel natural, might be due to microphone quality, gives headache if turned on after some time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features but eartips could have been better i bought this about a month ago , fit on my left ear is good , but fit on my right ear is not good , have to keep readjusting and the black eartips provided are not good at all , maybe develop some other types of eartips that can stay better in the ears There has also been a lot of bluetooth connection issues with my iphone xs max, keeps getting disconnected

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great noise cancellation, so so microphone Noise cancellation really works, I can listen to my podcast and music on trains and planes. However the microphone is not nearly as effective as Airpod or Jabra I used before. Software is glitchy. The initial setup didn’t work at all. I had to reset, repair then fiddle here and there to make the app connect to the headset. Occasionally the bluetooth connections drops for no obvious reason. The charging case is a bit too bulky for me, but your mileage may vary. Sony software has never been great, and I expect it to improve over time. I will bump up the rating to 4 stars after they fixes the software glitches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ok, but lacking in some parts The sound quality is great, the noise cancelling works and is suprisingly effective. Only problem is that it stutters too much and sometimes the audio just cuts off. and it is not durable, my right earbuds lost its noise cancellation function within 3 months of purchase and i dunno how i can go service in this current situation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound!! but with connectivity issues Sounds great! However when the when in ambient mode, the bluetooth disconnect quite often. Note that the charging case doesn't support wireless charging and it is a bit too bulky to be placed inside pockets. Also, the headphones are not water/sweat resistant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound but have fitting and connectivity issue I think this is the best sounding true wireless earbuds for me in the market right now. However... I could not get a good fit on the right side, as well as intermittent disconnections. Connection to my iPhone also takes longer than usual. Says Bluetooth connected but in fact it’s not. I still have to wait another 20-30 seconds before it’s really connected. Maybe have to repair over and over again. Please patch this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best thing I bought in 2019 I bought this in Nov 2019 and has never left home without it. Excellent sound and the battery life is next to perfect. The quick charging provided by the case itself is awesome your will never ran out of music for more than 10 mins. The noise cancelling feature is good enough for me. Once in you ear you won't feel its there because of the comfortable fit and the light weight. To summarize this product review all I can say is it's worth the money spent. Thank you SONY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb noise cancelling Bought this for christmas as a present to myself for working hard in 2019. Was considering this or the headphones but came to get this because of the ease of handling and usage as compared to a bulky headphone. Never looked back on the sound quality and it amaze me with how much control i can have over the sound quality i want for every individual setting. Superb noise cancelling effect as well. Thumbs up! Fast and efficient connectivity as well, very smart in terms of switching on, off and pausing to adapt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound but a slight miss in the features. Having used and being completely satisfied by the MDR 1000X M2 Headphones, I bought these with a slight hesitation as I was unsure if these could fill the shoes of its big brother. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least as the small size of the earbuds did not compromise in the sound department. However, I do have my reservations in some areas, namely during in-call and charging. There were times where the other party was unable to hear my clearly and I end up shouting like a crazy person. Secondly, it is such a waste that the buds do not have wireless charging especially since Sony charges a premium for them. This is a far cry compared to competitors such as JBL which do come with wireless charging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound performance. Overall, sound is great, easy to fine tune via the equalizer to achieve individual desired sound signature. Wireless performance is also satisfactory when use with Sony 1Z and iPad, however perform quite bad when use with my Sony ZX2 (when firmware version 1.2 for this earbud) with frequent glitches in the connection, the connection however mproves after updated to firmware 1.3.0), with much lesser glitches occurrence, not eliminated. Another area need to be improved is the sound volume control, I find the sound level sometime is a bit at low or a bit at high, need finer intermediate step of +/- for more gradual sound volume control to achieve desire sound volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good I bought these a little over 2 weeks ago and I am loving these. The noise cancelling is great to use especially when I'm on the train. The sound quality is promising. The battery life is better than advertised. The only issue i had so far is some connection issue when I have my phone in my jeans and the sound would distort a little bit. Especially when i have my phone in my right thigh pocket and i turned my head to the left. But once I look straight forward the sound just continues like it would normally. And also some of the eartips provided doesn't really fit my ear canal. So I have to adjust it in my ears every once in a while. But it could also due to the fact that i haven't tried all of the eartips. I recommend everyone that is interested in these to try these on if given the chance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is what I'm Looking For! I was looking for a decent in-ear and wireless earbuds for quite some time now and had tried the budget-friendly Xiaomi Redmi Airdots to the more expensive Jabra 65T and Jabra 75T. And after testing the WF-1000XME at my local Sony Centre, I finally decide the Sony instead. I'm a bass guy, and I like my earphone to be wireless. Hence the hunt for the TWS. Hearing the WF-1000XME for the first time really caught me by surprise! The treble is clear, bass is acceptable and the NC is superb! The unit is small enough to be portable, except for the charging case (but with 3x extra charging capability, I don't really mind the size). I replaced the eartips with a premium-priced ones (the one with the 3D tip) and the sound is even better! I don't know how Sony can beat this WF-1000XME with another newer product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still requires improvement.. Nevertheless, for its brand the device does stands to its level. However there are few key points that I would like to address for improvement purposes. Connectivity:- I must say the connectivity to the device (apple iphone) was most certainly not an easy thing to do. It took sometime for the first time after watching some guidance video via YouTube. If only Sony could come up with a apple friendly product it would definitely mean a lot. Size & Weight of the device:- It is really big and heavy at the same time compared to any other TWS products. Over the time it kinda hurts your ears. Try working on a much smaller and lighter weight possible. At least you won’t hear people complaining about having it on their ears for a longer period. Ear tips:- The ear tips are not for long listening I assume. Even the sponge base can be hurting too. The silicon ones are very intact and suits best for sports but that hurts more than the sponge based. Looking at investing on a 3rd party ear tips for better experience. This is coming out of my own pocket and therefore I’m not too pleased about it since I’ve invested a lot on this particular device. Large Bluetooth case:- The case is bigger than most of the TWS out there in the current market. Probably due to the ability for long play hours however I still believe the size of the case could be brought down accordingly. Need to depend on apps or other devices to monitor the battery level as some TWS provides the ability to view them (case and earbud battery level) from the case itself. Sony headphones app:- Most of the time it doesn’t detect the presence of my device. Takes longer time and reconnects multiple times. I have no choice to use this app to get the full potential of the device itself. Highly dependable on a unreliable app. It sometimes sickens me. Other than that the Sony TWS is a solid product however if we could curb the issues mentioned as a above I would most definitely give a 5 out 5. Finally I wish Sony the very best in enhancing their future earbuds (TWS). I have faith in the product as I’ve always been a faithful and loyal Sony fan. Looking forward for your kind response. Thanks and have a lovely day ahead Cheers, V

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honey! They shrunk my WH-1000XM3! Having owned a variety of different quality TWS, I have to say that Sony has hit the WF-1000XM3 out of the park! Listening to a selection of lossless music from different genres through an Ipad Pro and an Iphone 11, the Sony's offer and value are unmatched.. What I like? Great sound quality. Sounds very much like my full sized WH-1000XM3. Good ANC. One of the better ones I have tried in a wireless IEM. W-I-D-E headstage. What can be improved? Smaller case size please. Not so convenient to carry current case around. Ability to control volume & have playback controls at the same time.We now have to choose one or the other. Ambient sound control could be better. Did not quite work well for me. Overall? Great job Sony! Cant wait to see what improvements you can bring to the table with the next version!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Music Enjoyment What I really like about this new earphones is that I get to enjoy the best of both worlds: noise cancellation for absolute music enjoyment and the ability to listen to external sounds whenever I tap and hold the left earphone. What’s more, I can even control the level of noise cancellation it offers depending on the activity that I’m doing. For example, I set it such that whenever I’m stationary, noise cancellation is at 100%. And when I start walking, it automatically detects the change in movement, and reduces the NC to 50%. Once, I was using the earphones in the gym with the noise cancellation feature on. There was a fitness class going on and they were blasting upbeat music. I didn’t realised how loud the background music was until I took out the earphones. The NC function is truly exceptional. Highly recommended!

But I hope that in future, the size of the earbuds and battery cage can be more smaller and larger battery capacity, more option of cases for the battery cage for protection purpose and more color option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall Best for Quality A few points to mention where it stands out from the rest: - Quality for connection is superb. - Sound Quality is as good as a cabled earpiece - Volume, Play/Pause and ANC controls are available and easy to use. - Battery life is really awesome for a bluetooth earpiece - Passive noice cancelling is already good to the point where ANC is usually not needed unless it's a public space. - Application Control is a plus point and it does really alot more to help the earpiece. No matter how good a device is, there will always things to be improved, which will be stated as below (It is really good, but just recommendations to be improved): - Size of the box could be tweaked. - The ease of connecting to a new device could be easier - The shape could be improved abit to reduce ear fatigue after wearing it for a long time. Overall, it is personally the best bluetooth earpieces that i have used. I would love that the earpieces to be waterproof rated in the future for sports and more active use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound but room for improvement in other area One of the best in terms if sound quality. However, several other areas to be improved: - fitting is poor and earbuds have fallen out of my ear (have tried switching the size of the the buds but was of no help) - connection gets fuzzy intermittently, although it jumps back quickly to play normally without the need for any reconnection but is still quite an annoyance to hear static and fuzzy sounds - ‘hear through’ mode ( long tap on the left bud) takes significantly long time to activate and defeats the purpose of using it to respond to conversations (eg ordering a cup of coffee). - no way to tell how much charge is left on the case - so how do i know when is a good time to recharge. It will be too late once i see the indicator lights that it has gone flat. I mean, Who still waits till their phone is at 1% before giving it a charge? This was one of the most surprising, given that this pair is considered one if the higher range. Having said all these ‘negatives’ , the sound quality is one of the best among wireless earbuds in the market. As one of my friend who tried my earbuds said - it makes me hear things in my music that i have never heard before. So, the excellent sound quality makes up for some if these ‘downsides’ but would be good if these can be improved further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No volume control otherwise an excellent product The sound is great, the fit is very comfortable. The only drawback is the lack of volume control on the headphones. The after-thought app for it does not really work. At least for me, it did not work with my Samsung TV which is what I use it mainly for. At that price level, there should have been volume control like other competitor brands. I was quite disappointed because of this. So if you cannot control the volume from your source once connected to these headphones, then don't buy this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound and comfort very good, but still audio drops I bought the previous iteration of these wireless almost 2 years ago. Sound was very good then, but the drop in audio connection was infuriating and a disgrace considering the price and expectations for a brand like Sony. The delays with video were ridiculous. When I returned the earphones to the Sony store in Singapore to ask them to throw them away they did not even bother or appear embarrassed about the poor quality. When the new earphones came out a few weeks ago, I was convinced by the very positive reviews to try my luck with Sony one last time. I am quite happy with the product but the occasional audio drops still happen when walking around. But they are great when I am at my desk working

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of wireless earphone This product is excellent. The battery life is better as compare to the other one that I had. The sound quality is almost on par with the other one I have, but the bass definitely is better. The noise cancelling function is good also, except don't put it to adaptive mode via app. This is because when I'm inside the MRT, it will pause my music and so called improve the noise cancelling, then when I alight to a MRT station, it will pause again. It will cause like few seconds of no music avail, so a bit irritating. Just don't use adaptive mode, it is an excellent pair of ear phones. Not so much function as compare to the other one I have, like volume up/down, previous track via finger tapping on device, but still acceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sounds and Connectivity! I bought this about 2 months ago and I love the features, sounds and the excellent connectivity! Also the battery life is great! Sony needs to improve on the mic quality for phone calls for outdoor environment, I hope Sony will be able to fix this issue with a Software update soon. Even though I use the latest iPhone, I could have gone for the Airpod Pro but I decided to go with the Sony’s WF-1000XM3 and it’s definitely worth the buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Connection sucks Although sound quality is just average.. The connection between the R & L earpiece is horrid. Imagine both of them being connected to either ur samsung phone or apple ipad. And u can only hear it from 1 side. Or in another thing that happened was although it shows that it is connected to your device. You cant hear the music or voice clearly or steadily. Earbuds piece are poor quality. Painful, uncomfortable and just dont bother buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eartips problem Till now it's my best earbugs for Noise Cancelling. A bit problem is eartips not really fitted my ears. I change all to try but final the large one is more fixed me around 85% but after use a while loss again. Not really fitting firmly and comfortable. After used one week, feel that wasted. Try to change my Jabra Elite t65 ear tip but still not satisfied. It's great change to my Soul Emotion 2 large eartips, fitted 100% and feel comfortable. May be Sony hope provided more fixed eartips and designed a bit long and deep to ear but may be this is a bit problem for the design. Anyways, just my personal views and feedback. Thanks to Sony for design and provided the superb Noise Cancelling earbugs. Cheers and pray all healty and stay safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality but few conectivity problems The headphones are truly amazing however there are times that it does not work as it should. Sometimes the headphones would "stutter" when my phone screen turns on or when I get a notification. I do not know if its a problem with my phone or the earbud. However the product is truly worth it. I've had it for about 3 to 4 months now and I don't leave the house without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect !!! Bought and been using this truely wireless earbuds as my daily driver for a month. The noise cancelling function well in it's size. Battery life is exellent and sound quality is exceptional, it could be better with LDAC! Suitable for instumental music listening as you can hear every piece of instrument in details! (my goosebumps up when listening Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven or Eagle's Hotel California (live on MTV,1994) with WF-1000XM3!) Only if the music volume and low fequency (bass) could be louder and deeper will be absolute perfect! Overall i love what i heard from WF-1000XM3, Well done SONY! Never let me down!

But the unit seems disconnect or half way listen music the earbud will like searching something. I'm not sure is this a function where the unit will keep scanning and update environment sound? It always come with a tone like sound from the earbud. Where I found is annoying. Hope I can have an answer for that. Noise cancellation inside this small earbud I would say good enough but hope to have better improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great battery life and music device, horrible call After using this product for months, audio quality is very good with good anc and sound reproduction. Good: Decent battery life Good audio reproduction. Can improve: ANC not as great as previous Gen Sony ANC headphone. In complete NC setting external sound still managed to get into the hearing. Wind noise sometime also managed to get pass the NC under condition of 5kph wind condition. Bluetooth stability seems to flicker after 2.0.2 update. Bad: Mic pickup for phone call is terrible . During a phone call mic tend to pick up all surrounding sound and background voices very clearly but not the speaker's voice. It almost seems the software reverse the mic. Using the NC mic as pickup and normal mic as NC for phone call. Example. Call pickup a background conversation from 3 meter away as if the talker is shouting into the call where the caller voice is hardly heard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My humble review So far the ANC is superb.. The sound quality is really diffenrent comparing to other TWS.. But only after I changed to a better aftermarket silicone ear tip.. With the standard issue ear tip, I still can hear wind noise from outside.. And also can hear sometimes people talking beside me when I'm in a train.. Even though I've set it for ANC (total isolation).. Another problem is, I cant use it for conferencing on Windows PC.. It only works superbly on phone.. Most probably due to the application/drivers/etc..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and design but poor connection I love the way the earbuds feel and looks, they fits perfectly with the many choices of tips to choose from. The sound quality is great and with the anc I can barely hear external noice when listening to music. However, the Bluetooth connection was very unstable, I got disconnected frequently even though I was not moving. It can be as frequent as after 10mins to an hour although I’ve selected the stable connection priority in the headphone app. It can get very frustrating and annoying to reconnect so frequently. Followed the trouble shooting guide to reduce disconnections but did not work. Overall, would be the best earbuds if not for the connection issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product except microphone background noise I bought this 3 months ago. My experience so far. Microphone on both ear pieces did not work properly, there was lot of surrounding/public/traffic noise when outdoors while in voice call. Caller couldn't hear my voice. When called customer care they asked me to update firmware software but invain. Walked into Sony care. They took it in and replaced both the ear pieces. Now caller can hear my voice but still with background noise. Pros: Sound quality is amazing compared with other true wireless. Customize highs and lows in Sony mobile App for best settings for you. Light weight fits snuggly but if had ear tip wing would be fully secured. Good enough noise cancellation. Superb battery life with bulky charge case. You will never remember when you actually charged the case. Cons: Poor microphone voice isolation. Lot of background noise in voice call, still needs update. Bulky charging case, no wireless charging. Very small charging cable without (NO) wall plug for charging. Overall, worthful for the price and quality from Sony. It need some updates here and there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and noise cancelation I bought this a couple of months ago. The sound/music is excellence and so is the noise cancelation (after I swap the default tips with Comply foam). It works wonderfully until I upgrade to IOS 13. Bluetooth connection is just not the same anymore. Sometime it does not even connect with my iPhone. Even after connection, there are occasional breaks during music streaming. I do not have such problem before IOS 13. Sony has done some firmware updates and have alleviate most of the challenges but the connection is still not as smooth as before IOS 13. This is the reason for the 3 stars instead 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buggy software update and weak connection Received this during pre-order purchase. Hardware side: The headphones are comfortable to use. However, the metallic-painting lid of the charger doesn't have anti-scratch coating, there's already scratches on the lid within a week of purchase, under the condition of putting in my pant's pocket with my plastic-casing phone. Battery capacity and charging is sufficient. Software side: It‘s working good until recent. After the latest software update on the headphones, even my Bluetooth connection to PC is near and stable, when I paused and resumed any media playing on my PC, there is no sound playing on both my headphones, even they are still connected to the PC (the power is still on and no "Bluetooth disconnected" notification). This forced me to put them back to the charger and restart the headphones again, but this bug still happens several times (4-5) continuously afterwards. Also, in these events, sometimes the LEFT headphone will disconnected and reconnected shortly, and plays "tuck tuck" sound rapidly and endlessly until I put it back into charger to reset back to normal, while the RIGHT headphone will mute awhile then turn off and turn on again.

If you're buying it, take time to use the eq, totally worth it. Noise cancellation is not as good as the headphones but hey, in a small package, I'll take it. Pairing is really easy and you can use them independently. Take one out and leave one in the case. There's no wireless charging but it charges with USB C so not bad. The foam tips turned smelly though after a while, not sure if it's just me, so I used silicon tips instead. I haven't tried for sports but will do so soon.

Woo the bass, deep impact, never hear Anne-Marie sing so brightly before. Really dun koe what I had been missing out. The Sony app, everytime disconnected one when you come out of the app, when going into the app, always needs to re connect. Another thing I find out is that when you off the ambient sound control, the music sound better, more like open up abit. And the constant auto detect your environment, it will pause your music for like 1 sec and play again. Using iPhone X and using the tips that come with it.

But other than that, there's nothing else to complain about the noise cancellation and the sound quality. Thanks sony

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, limited mic for calls Great for travel, walking, at home listening. Deep sound for small and affordable buds. Wind noise can be a problem when running or biking or in a windy area and trying to use nc. Call quality is great for you, but terrible for other party who can hear lots of wind noise and limited mic. All buds face this issue, these are no exception but it is a consideration for users taking frequent calls. The sound modes are great and turning off NC and Ambient mode will give reasonable cancellation through isolation with no wind noise. The equaliser function and the mobile app are very good. Customization of levels is easy and effective. The touch buttons are simple to use, pairing is quick, charging is fast and charge does last quite a long time (enough for a 5 hour journey/day between charges, easily). I use them for exercise like jogging and they stay in the ear but are a bit bulky. They are good for walks in the city. Excellent for taking trips and cutting the din of city noise, social space noise. I would recommend to most buyers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the noise cancelation It definitely a good buy, use it when I commute to work. The noise cancelation cancel out a lot of the noise from the railway. The sound quality is superb, Great sounding High and Mid, Bass well balance and the sounds stage are wide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound but with shame Used it for a month and sound quality is definitely A+ standard. Love the features such as noice cancelling and touchpad control. Not to mention the app works like charm, a lot of flexibility offered to increase the user experiences. However I do experience stutter/skipping while playing songs, and no wireless charging for the case is definitely a shame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ANC TWS i have ANC over-ear headphones and know/appreciate how they work. was curious how ANC would work for TWS earbuds and now am impressed with ANC feature on the WF-1000XM3. while the earbuds themselves are great, am not sure if i can say the same for the Sony Headphone app. initiatives on the apps are great but relevance and usability is questionable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best True wireless headphones, so far. This is the best true wireless headphones you can get. The noise cancelling is great, however it requires you to get a good fit of the headphones in your ear canal, and this isn't a problem with the many included eartips. With similar branding and name as compared to the WH-1000X mk3, I went in expecting equivalent sound quality but was let down when the music was not as crisp as I hoped. These are still the best sounding True Wireless headphones I've ever had and I would pick it any day over the over ear headphones for its convenience and portability. The charging case is a bit large and doesn't fit quite nicely into my pocket and there are no volume controls on the Headphone itself, you must control it from your phone. Other than that, I love this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ANC and Great sound! Love the earpiece so far. The sound is beautifully balanced. Vocals and instruments on the earpiece is excellent. ANC works well provided you find the ear tip with a proper fit. Battery life great, yet to deplete the battery before placing it back into the case to recharge. I do dislike the materials of the casing though. Prone to fingerprints/scratches and smudges. Overall this earpiece is here to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound BUT lousy connection I've been using the Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds for close to 2 months now. The sound quality and active noise cancellation is great and industry leading. I'm coming from the B&O E8 2.0 and the sound quality of Sony is comparable to the leading brands. HOWEVER, the connection of the earbuds are really bad. I've already adjusted in the app to have the priority be set to Stable Connection but my earbuds keep having their connection dropped from my phone and then not reconnecting to my phone regardless of how I tap on them. This would occur suddenly halfway through my watching of a video or when I switch from watching a video to listening to my songs. My only solution was to take them out and then place them back in the case before removing them and having them reconnect to my phone again. This occurring once or twice is fine but it has occurred more than 10 times the past 2 months and its getting extremely frustrating. *The connection drop off just occurred again while I'm typing out this review I've not experienced such connection drops with my B&O E8 2.0 and also no such issue with my Jaybirds X3. As such, I'm quite certain that the fault lies with the Sony Earbuds and not my phone. I hope Sony can release a firmware update to address this issue so that its earbuds can truly be the best earbuds in the market. If possible, it would be even better if Sony can add in volume level controls directly on the earbuds instead of us having to control the volume level only through our phone or smartwatch. Overall the sound quality and active noise cancellation are the main features of this earbuds and I would definitely recommend them. We just need Sony to address these issues and these earbuds can easily be the best ones out there. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Regret to have one I received the WF-1000XM3 about a month ago as my birthday present, till now my experience with WF-1000XM3 is bad. There are few occasions both earphone stop functioning and the Right side earphone projected sharp disruptive noise and it CAN NOT be used to answer phone calls. Last Friday, the first time i use the earphone for a road trip (5-6 hours) journey. It informed that it was fully charged when i put it on. Having connected with Spotify for 2 hours or so, it notifies me that battery is running low and ask me charge it. I tired many time to answer call with the device, the experience is unacceptable. Whenever i answer a call, the other side can't hear me. Although i can her them, but they can hear me. With my experience (the above mentioned) i only use WF-1000XM3 while i am travelling in MRT which is about less than 1 hour. The sound quality and the noise cancelling system are indeed very good. But my bad experience with phone answering, battery life, and the sharp disruptive noise supplanted the positive points. After asking Sony retail personnel, i can only send it back for warranty. This reply really turn me off. My overall user experience after using it for 2 months or so is really bad. Compare with my experience with Jabra, JBL, and Bose, i have my reservation on SONY audio/ sound products and i will consider trice or even more buying it. An earphone which cost close to RM 1000 can only use for such limited purpose?? I can only blame myself for choosing SONY over other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent audio quality and noise cancelling! Used the big brother WH-1000XM3 for some months, skeptical at first to learn the lack of AptX or LDAC on this WF, but the audio quality, natural sound and sound-stage of WF-1000XM3 is surprisingly good for me (classical, jazz, 70-90's pop, Full HD videos), and with its portability, has replaced my WH-1000XM3 for casual daily listening. In office, this WF noise cancelling does a good job hiding aircond hum and lowering people voices. The Headphones Connect app is great, offers much customization. I wish it allowed disabling or dimming the blinking blue LEDs because they are annoying in the dark. Also, phone calls audio is not that clear. Great battery life and fast USB-C charging but at this price I wish it added wireless charging. For premium audio listening or for cancelling flight/vehicle cabin noise, the WH overhead is still be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I bought these to replace Sony’s previous flagship in-ears ( which have been ‘ borrowed’ by my daughter whilst she travels. The charger/case is perfect to slip into a pocket or back and the magnetic closure is reassuringly secure. the headphones themselves are pleasant to hold and to look at and fit into my ears snugly and do not give the impression that they might easily be dislodged. As it happens, my first ‘field test’ was literally that, 3 days at a music festival and all my impressions are positive. The sound quality is without peer, beating the previous ‘phones, not by much, but enough. But, the one area where these beauties wipe the floor with their older siblings is the rock-solid Bluetooth connection- the signal did not drop out once in almost three days of soak testing ( excuse the pun - it rained cats and dogs for two whole days!). I listened to a variety of music mp3 and hi-res files via my Sony portable player and the headphones handled everything with aplomb. I also tried all of the settings- ambient and noise cancelling, though with so many people around me at a busy festival, ambient was my preferred setting out in the field though I reverted to noise cancelling back at my tent. Battery life is impressive, I charged the case unit overnight before I left home for my trip used the ‘phones for hours each day, popping them back in the case overnight and they were ready to go again all day the next morning. Even at home, these have now become my ‘phones of choice as I prefer them to bulky on or over ears that I also own. If you are serious about listening to music and want to go truly wireless, why look anywhere else?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect but false battery claim Noise cancelling works well and sound pretty good. Single use mode work with each left and right. Two main problem. 1. Ambient sound control don't always work, I have to tap the touch zone multiple times until it works. 2. Battery claimed to be 6 hours but in actual use without calling, just pure music listening (50% volume) is 3 hours (tested multiple times), just like gen 1 product's battery life. 6 hours most likely achievable without music playing or at lowest level. Other than surprising weak battery, overall good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Total Fail of Earbus Those earbuds have a pretty well build quality, but the build quality isn't the only thing that matters. The sound is the thing that counts, and they sound terrible , bad lows and bad highs combined with nearly no bass, thats not a great combination. Also the case is that big, that it even fits in a pocket of a pant. And for 250€ i will get many other Earbuds with better quality, such as the Jabra Elite 65t Active or the Bose SoundSport Free, that sound much greater and with more volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I pre-order this buds as soon as it was availabe and I don't regret it one bit. The foam tips included provide great noise isolation on top of the excellent noise cancellation (it is nowhere near WH-1000XM2/3 but it's unfair comparison. I find it to be better than WI-1000X and WF-1000X though, props to sony). The sound quality is top-notch, but beware that DSEE-HX will cause sound artifacting that is VERY apparent (I almost return this buds for refunds, because I thought it was issue with the earphones) so you need to turn it off. I've used it for 8 hours already since purchased and only one instance of lost connectivity to the right earbuds, but I don't know whether it's because of the buds or because I left the case in other room downstairs and was like 20-30 meters away from the case (I do experience issues connecting to the earbuds when the case is very far so you need to bring the case with you). I do find a little bit of latency issues that is baaarely noticeable when using AAC and ONLY in gaming. Media consumption has almost no apparent latency at all (even though I tried very hard to discern it) much to my curiosity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely impressed with the battery lifetime I have been using in-ear headphones for a while but these I have to say are outstanding, particularly when it comes to the battery lifetime. They come with a very elegant black/rosegold box, which needs to be fully charged for a good 4 hours at the beginning. The design is nice as well and they are very comfortable to wear, even for longer. The headphones, once charged, last easily for 3-4 hours of extensive usage, I used them at work, during my commute, for calls. Once the in-ears battery is empty you just put them back into the box for a few hours and they recharge in little time, I have been using them like this for almost a week before I had to recharge the box. The sound quality when listening to music is excellent, same for taking audio and video calls, excellent quality for sound and microphone. I have also been using the noise cancelling function on the tube or in the office and have to say it's quite good. Not completely cancelling all the noise off but rather good. Improvements could maybe be made around the ambient sound function, especially when using the headphones outside, the sound of wind impacts a little bit on the music sound. I've also had a few issues sometimes with my Bluetooth connection being interrupted every few seconds, had to turn everything off an on again. They seem to be slightly confused between my phone and computer connection and sometimes it's a bit hard to control. Overall an amazing product in usual awesome Sony quality, which I would totally recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Wireless Noise Cancelling Headset Sony has managed to raise the bar to another level. These noise cancelling wireless head phones are just amazing. They come in a small compact box, that the main product slides out of. Straight away there’s the instructions to set up the headphones, in an easy to follow step by step guide as you unpack the product. The headphones themselves are unbelievably small, and fit securely in the case. The case is also a battery pack as you would expect with headphones such as these. The case feels very high quality, and very rugged, the case also has a charging light on the front and has a USB-C socket on the bottom. I really like this feature, as most of my other tech kit is USB-C so it means I don’t have to carry a large number of cables around. Sony provide an app to help with connecting these to your phone, tablet or whatever else you want to use them with. Sony also provide another app to use the headphones. To be honest I didn’t use either. They were straight forward to set up and use as you would normally do with headphones. There’s a quick set up guide for those that struggle. In use there’s loads of great features. They fit snugly into the ear, and there’s a selection of buds in the box for different size ears. The noise cancelling on these is just amazing, they lack the attenuation effect of decent over the ear cans, but this is made up to an extent with the noise cancelling. You are, however, getting much lighter and slicker in ear headphones. You can easily switch between noise cancelling and ambient sound with a tap of the left bud, and you can make phone calls with 2 taps of the right bud. One of the features I love is if you remove a bud to talk to someone, your music stops and restarts when you replace the bud. I found clarity of voice calls to be exceptional, and the noise cancelling to be way above what I have come to expect from wireless buds. Overall I have found these headphones to be exceptional. I have tried wireless buds from two other manufacturers and these from Sony are just streets ahead of their competition. Yes there are comprises. These will not satisfy the ultimate audiophile, who wants total noise suppression and ultimate base and clarity. But if thats what you want then the larger Sony WH-1000XM3s would be more for you. These are a fantastic wireless bud headset, certainly the best that I have come across.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Issues with connectivity Received the WF-1000Xm3 yesterday. Pair the bluetooth with my iPhone XS and was very glad that it was quick, download, connected and set up the Sony Headphones Connect app.does However, after 20 mins or so the music stopped although the bluetooth is still connected. Re-initialize both the ear piece, pressing each for about 20 secs and pressing both at same time for about 10 secs. Delete bluetooth connect on iPhone XS. Did not work, tried again the re-initialization and delete bluetooth connection, manage to connect on this second attempt. There is a message on the iPhone indicating that the device is not recognized but the connection is working and music is playing. Second issue, the Sony Headphone Connect many times showed that device is not recognized. It takes a few try to connect to the app even after a few attempt to delete and reload the app. Also did a full reboot of my iPhone XS, problem still persist. Third issue, after listening for 1.5 hour the voice on the WF-1000Xm3 come on informing that battery is low and to re-charge. When I first put it on, the voice indicated that both ear piece are fully charged, the Sony Connect app also indicated 100% battery level. Decided to recharge overnight and this morning both ear piece are at 100% and currently using the WF-1000Xm3 so far for 1.5 hour and on the Sony app, it is showing battery level at 70%..... Now beginning to wonder if the battery will last for 6 hours??? It will be appreciated if Sony can let me know asap if there is anything I should do to ensure the above issues are fully resolved. Could it be a faulty set such that the set will breakdown soon and hopefully to be able to get answers to the above issues especially before the return policy term period expire in <13 days for today. BTW, a question, the Sony Headphone Connect app does it gets disconnected after a short time and have to close and reopen app where it takes about 5 secs to connect again. I am rating 3 star (average) due to the issues above but I am absolutely very happy with the sound quality . At this time until after a period of use and also having the above issues resolved, I will put on hold recommending to anybody on the WF-1000Xm3. In general, I will recommend Sony products from all my past experiences with the many Sony products that I owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new king of truly wireless earbuds Pre-ordered these buds 2 weeks ago and just got them today. Worth every penny. No lag latency, fantastic sound quality ( equal to the Sennheiser Momentums imo, though the bass in the Momentums has slightly more thump and energy ), and noise cancelling that is equal to the WH-1000XM2 which is no small feat. All in all, a gargantuan step-up in the right direction from the WF-1000X.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality At first it was a little difficult getting this device to connect but once set up. The Bluetooth connection is good with no issues with it losing a connect. The headphones connect quickly and the battery lasts a good time and with the charging case makes it really good for the commute into work. The sound quality though is epic the bass is deep and the voice is clear and with the noise cancelling it's easy to get lost in your favourite songs. All in all a great device and would recommend to anyone who enjoys music or listening to audio books on the train. Certainly worth the money. Only downside I can say is the ear buds do have a habit of coming loose when your sweating but maybe I have weird size ears. The magnets that help hold the earbuds in the case are a nice feature aswell makes putting them in easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problems over Problems First of all i wanna say that there earbuds are pretty well build, and they have a normal sound quality, but those connection problems are really annoing. When i'm running the connestion get always lost or the earbuds are shutting down without pressing any Button. The second thing i wanna mention in this review is the durability. I don't think that those earbuds last for a long period, maybe 1 year not longer. After 2 weeks i see the first attritions. I give those headphones max a year before they get broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First ear buds I like. I use the noise-cancelling SONY headphones WH-X1000XM1 quite a lot to listen to audio books and rock music, but they’re a bit bulky to take out on the street or pack on holiday. So I thought I’d try the new WF-1000XM3 ear buds. The buds come in a neat small box, most of which should be recyclable as hardly any plastic. The buds have a bespoke small storage box to hold them, which also acts as their charging unit. As would be expected the charging box has to be charged fully so I grab the nearest USB charging cable. Nope, that doesn’t work, as unit uses the newer USB C cable. Delayed me slightly extracting the correct cable from the packing box. However, the USB C cables are symmetrical so I don’t have to put my glasses on to plug it in the correct way around. Every time you put the buds in the box they charge, the box is supposedly good enough for four full charges. Currently I haven’t had to power the charging/storage box in two weeks of daily use. Connection of the buds to my new smartphone only took a couple of minutes for the phone to recognise the new Bluetooth device. Adding the Sony Headphones app gives more options to configure the buds. I tried fiddling with settings but reverted to the defaults. It’s a shame that the new app doesn’t work with my mk1 Bluetooth headphones (no app available) or my Bluetooth speakers that have to use a different app. I am more used to using headphones, so ear bud users already know this, but it is a learning curve for me in that I have had to try out different sized ear buds to get a good fit, plus if you suffer from excess ear wax, cleaning is required else the units get blocked (sorry has to be said). Finally get to listen to my books and music. Listening conditions were varied, screaming family, cutting the lawn, cooking with the extractor fan on; result was I could hear every word clearly without having to set the volume to maximum. As to moving around; no cables to accidently pop the units out of your ear every couple of seconds was brilliant. The weight of the buds didn’t seem to be a problem. For me during use; I had to reposition the buds every so often, this could be possibly due to my ears not being used to having buds plugged in. Daily use of the buds involves taking the buds out their box; this switches them on and thus their connecting to my phone, putting them back in their box switches them off and recharges them. Bud controls involve tapping the units on their small circular plates. Tapping the left hand unit changes the noise cancelling function. This I found a bit hit and miss. Successful tapping is rewarded with an audible confirmation of the setting selected, otherwise only a beep is heard. I’m still practicing this process. The right bud controls use with the phone, still have to try this. I gave my rock tracks a good workout with the buds. Having old ears I can drive the buds at very high volumes (if you’re young then you won’t have to do this). Did I notice any break up in sound quality? None at all; no mechanical buzzing etc. In fact I think the bass is better controlled than on the headphones. I have additionally tried linking the buds to the TV set due to the family complaining I have it on too loud. This I did successfully. Unfortunately there is no way to change the buds volume and it appears to disable the TVs speakers. Speaker disabling does not happen when using the headphones. So would I throw away my headphones for the buds. For use out the house the buds are far more transportable, less noticeable, lighter and you can easily put them away in their pocket sized charging box when not in use. At home I think I would still prefer to use the headphones even with the extra weight and bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far Superior to Bose and Sennheiser! I've had the opportunity to sample some of the latest True Wireless products and over-ear headphones on the market. Suffice to say, when I had the opportunity to review the new WF-1000MX3, I took it. The charging case featured a silky, back neoprene finish with an elegant copper lid. The opening of the lid was smooth, and the lights on the case indicating the charge status were quite helpful. Putting the headphones in my ear were a piece of cake; all I had to do was insert the foam tip and slightly twist the headphones counter-clockwise until they were comfortably secure. The texture of the black plastic finish and copper accents on the headphones were tasteful and understated. But the sound; the sound blew me away immediately. After owning Apple AirPods for over half a year as well as trying the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless and Bose headphones, I was totally shocked at how much better the sound was and how Sony could pack so many features into a such a portable product. The new noise cancelling chip completely eliminated the chatter surrounding me while the driver brought the concert to my ears! These are truly audiophile quality headphones with the ability for adjustments via the Sony Headphones Connect app. I cannot wait to purchase my own pair and enjoy my music, and nothing else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but dissaponting I bought these about 6 months ago for work, i work as a flight paramedic and the active noise cancelling was exactly what i needed in a small package. for that they are perfect. ive enjoyed using them going through airports, traveling, and even work they have been fantastic and have great features and great quality. the active noise cancelling is a great feature as well. Although what bothers me the most about these are how much they do not stay in my ears. they are ALWAYS coming out, i have to adjust them and replace them in my ears all the time. It has become a nuisance, esspicaly when working and you cant use your hands to readjust them. It says on the website that they will stay in your ear with "tri-point contact" and "high friction rubber surface" with my expirene i could never tell, They were the first headphones i bought without the inner ear loops and i was slightly dissaponted. I will try and workout or do activties that dont require a large amount of crazy movement like yoga off down-dog app and they will just fall out. for the amount that these headphones were i would expect I dont have to fight with them to stay in my ears for whatever reason. Again, these are great ear buds. there easily one of my best purchases in records to any sort of headphones. The active noise cancelling is fantastic and i lvoe them. Althouhg if you were going to ask me if i recommend them im on the fence. for the ammount i paid for these i shouldnt have to think wearing them is a hassal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great earbuds with place for improvements I bought the earbuds around 2 weeks ago, so I can tell you about my experience after the 'oh my god, i almost can't hear anything around me' magic became ordinary. Let's start with charging box. The design is pretty slick and all, but after just one day of carrying it in my pocket, the copper top where the Sony logo is got a scratch and I just had a lighter in my pocket apart from the charging box. Now when it comes to the earbuds themselves, I am pretty happy with them. I own the swimming earbuds from Sony and as far as swimming with them is so great, the sound on them is way too muddy and I was afraid it's just how Sony makes their earbuds. Happily that wasn't the case with these ones. The sounds is quite amazing straight from the box, but you can fine tune the frequency response in the app to make it perfect for your preference. Speaking of the app, let's talk about tech side of the things a bit. I got the earbuds a week before the app update was available, so my first week I got to experience the long connecting times every time I wanted to change something in the app. Thankfully the update fixed that and now I'm able to tweak everything in the app without losing my patience. So the app is great and all, but it's only available on iOS and Android devices, which is a bit of a downer, because if you want to connect your headphones to a Windows laptop you lose the control over the noise cancelling options and the rest of the jazz. The latest software update promised a better connection to Windows devices, but to be honest I can't really say how much it really improved things as I'm getting all kinds of connection glitches when trying to just watch a youtube video. I would not recommend these earbuds if your primary device to connect them to is a laptop. The connection to my mobile phone (iPhone) is pretty spot on with occasional dropouts and glitches, most of them when in a supermarket, probably due to multiple signal sources that interfere with my devices, but I guess little can be done about this (nonetheless, surprise me, Sony!). Some of my other concerns are pretty minor, for example I seem not be able to unpause a youtube video once i paused it using the earbud's touch sensor, but then again most likely the blame is on youtube's side. Another thing is the missing volume control on the earbuds themselves, which is quite baffling as the mobile app lets you map different options to the touch sensor, so I'm hoping Sony engineers will come up with a way to add this option, as some people don't use voice assistants, but would welcome the volume control with arms wide open. In general those earbuds are a solid product, with a few places for improvement. There is nothing to complain about the hardware (well, maybe the materials used for the charging box, but let's not be that pedantic) and the software seems to be updated on regular basis, so anything missing in that department, we can just hope will be fixed one issue at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great listening experience, could be comfier I recieved these as a birthday gift around 2 weeks ago and so far my experience has been great! The sound amazing, the blutooth works exactly as intended, I face no issues using either earbud individually or using them togeth, nor do I have issues pairing the second bud after using the first for a while. However, I would be lying if I said they were perfect, there is definitley something to be desired in terms of comfort of the buds. Due to the extra weight that comes with the ANC Sony stuffed into these (which works fantastically btw) they had to add a secondary support to ensure they stay in your ear, this is done in the form of a little rubberized support that sits just below the bud. This support does it's job, the buds stay in no problem matter the conditions, but after a little while of use they start to irritate the inside of my ears. Additionally, despite these supports, you can still definitley feel the weight of the buds, I almost always know they're there weather it's from the weight of them, the rubberized supports, or the characteristic preassure that ANC exerts on your ears (This is inherent with most forms of Active Noise Cancellation) so you will not be able to put them in and forget about them. Overall, I do love these earbuds, they are fantastice to carry with you and put them in when you don't want to be disturbed, or just want to listen to high quality music, it's great for college study sessions. My final conclusion is that, if you are looking for a high quality listening experience with noise cancellation, these are them, but if you are looking for a pair of earbuds which you can put in and forget about for casual listening, I'd say look somewhere else as these are built more for audiophiles rather than casual listeners. The price point is indicative of this aswell at $229.99USD, without wireless charging, or IPX water resistance, both things the majority of other true wireless earbuds on market have at least one of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Switching headphones to different devices I bought these before I went on a trip, I opened them up connected them to my phone, sound quality is great, long battery life, cool sleek case. The problem I had was when my phone was low on battery, id disconnected the headphones and try to connect them to my iPad. I no joke, sat there for 30 min trying to get them to connect. Through the app, through regular Bluetooth. On the app, it would say it’s “connecting” but it would say it for 5 plus minutes. And trying to connect through your phones Bluetooth is no better, the headphones wouldn’t pop up even though they’re not connected to anything. What I found out that sometimes helps, is if I forget device, put the headphones back in the charging case, close out of the headphones app and turn off Bluetooth, then turn Bluetooth back on open the app and put the headphones back in, I would sometimes get them to connect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best noise cancelling buds - tip seal work needed I use the Sony over ear headphones and speaking as an ex Bose devotee, believe they are the best noise cancelling wireless headphones on the market. I do a lot of long haul flights and that is what I love the over ear phones for but they are a bit bulky for hand luggage if you are just doing an overnighter short haul, which is why I bought the WF-1000XM3 The tap on the touch pad controls take a bit of getting used to but when you do they are pretty intuitive. If you want to do more sophisticated stuff you need to use the phone/tablet app but that works pretty well. There is a great range of tips supplied but, unfortunately, none really work for me, which is a huge shame. Regardless of the size or type I choose there is leakage, which is a shame given how good the noise cancelling is. If I press the buds into my ears the noise cancelling works perfectly, if I let go it is still pretty good but there is leakage. Maybe I have been spoiled by the over ear phones. I'm now experimenting with non Sony tips and I'm sure I will find something that works better, but I would hope Sony have enough pride in this excellent product to try to solve this niggle themselves. Overall the best there is, I just wish there were tips available that make the performance absolute perfection. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound and excellent noise cancelling The headphones sound good and the noise cancelling is excellent. The earbuds are not as comfortable as my Shure ones because I have somewhat small ear channels however I can wear them for a few hours at a time. The one problem is when driving the bluetooth connection frequently drops out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurts to wear I have had semi wireless earbuds before so below is comparison to them. Minuses: - The earbuds does not fit into smaller ear almost at all. You need to stick them so deep it hurts, and still feels that they might drop from ear at any moment. Compared to Boses approach that "rests" on ear canal these feels terrible. - Not for sports as there is huge risk of loosing them - When walking these keeps super annoying sound when they wobble in ear canal due to weight of the earbud. I want to listen to music, not my steps. - Unlike in pictures, the earbuds sticks out from ear. You look like frankenstein with them - The noise cancellation amplifies the wind instead of reducing it. When it is windy it is better to turn noise cancellation off, otherwise the microphones picks the wind and amplifies it - Tapping the earbud even lightly sounds like banging iron with hammer next to your ear - Noise cancellation is medicore at best. the earbud feels like bad earplug, but does not isolate as well. - Pairing with Samsung flagship phone were cumbersome and failed multiple times - The charging case does not fit into pocket, it is massive Plusses: + Sound quality is good + They look good in pictures

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not that happy with the mic It has the same problem with WH-1000XM2's mic. During a call, the mic picks up the ambient sound instead of your voice. Also, it has a tendency to make a "robotic" sound during a call. You can't hear well the person you are talking with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones! Great sound quality, exceeded my expectations in various music categories! A lot of amazing features including google assistant support, equalizer adjustments in the Sony Headphone App, and also ambient sound control. Sony did a excellent job on this product, definitely worth for my money! 90+ out of 100. Only issue is the connections between the buds. Sometimes it takes a few seconds before the two actually syncs correctly (sync delay). Have to make sure those two are connected to each other before playing any media. Battery level is top notch. Only need to charge the whole case after 3 days. Of course, this is according to personal usage. Free 7 sets of eartips (6 in the box, including 1 already attached to the heaphone itself), so much 'Customer Care' from Sony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best... Researched, compared to others but these are AMAZING FOR QUALITY. It would be impossible for any other headphone to give you better, clearer and more precise sound. They fit great, don't fall out, easy to use and the ability to change Bass etc is awesome. Noise Cancelling=excellent. They cut out 85% of sound with no music. You tap the side and boom, it's unreal. With music, you literally can't hear the outside world. I have used them in the Gym but they don't have IPX rating. If you're looking for solely activity ear phones (gym, running) then maybe look elsewhere. Connectivity is fine. I switch from my Android phone, to Ipad, to iPhone, to Laptop and its fine. Not perfect, but it works. I'd buy another pair if I lost these. Sony 360 is amazing too but the apps(3) are monthly paid subscriptions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good with mobile phones but poor with laptops Excellent ANR function and useful features. Noise quality is full and refined with mobile phones. However, performance when paired with laptops running Windows 10 is poor. It is choppy as though connection is unstable. Havr tried different audio drivers to no avail. Hopefully Sony will come up with a firmware fix soon.

They sound great, they feel super comfy once I figured out how to wear them right and the battery is great in both the case and the earpieces. My only complaint is the calls. A lot of the time the connection will drop, and from the receiving end they don't sound very good mic wise. Other than that, I absolutely adore them and would buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for Me! I have wanted some wireless ear bud headphones for a long time. I spent quite some time reviewing all the different models available before I settled on the Sony headphones. I am used to Apple wired headphones and tried out the Apple Air Pods before deciding that the better sound quality and the noise cancelling features on the Sony was something I needed. I was very pleased with the sound quality but I could never get the Sony buds to fit, I tried all the available sizes supplied but nothing stayed in my ear. I knew that eventually I would lose one of them. Probably because I never found a good fit the noise cancelling was never any good. So they went back to Amazon and I replaced them with the Sony WH-1000XM3 over ear headphones. Wow these are good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost great Got it during pre-order with free power bank. Initial use wasn't very comfortable. It took awhile for me to get used to the fitting and the type of buds to use. I settled with the original buds given after feeling pain with the foam type. It gives great sound and reasonable noise cancellation. Don't compare with WH series. The lack of aptx and LDAC is a missed opportunity. I found that connection frequently breaks, but turns out due to clash between the WiFi causing it. To solve the frequent BT disconnect, try disabling your WiFi at your phone. Battery life, really really long. Have been using it occasionally for a week now and still haven't charge the casing. It's always full so I can't really tell if achieved 24 hours. Overall it's a good product but not great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not gym friendly Got them at the end of 2019. Sound quality is great and the noise cancelling is a plus. Big issue comes in when I go to the gym. The audio constantly cuts out (sometimes minutes at a time). I've tried disconnecting/reconnecting and always have the settings prioritized to sound quality. Doesn't help at all. I get other Bluetooth devices interfere with connection, but my s/o has a JBL wireless earphones and has little to no problems. Again sound quality is great, but I would've invested $200+ in other earphones had I known about the connection prior. -Also, the earbuds are very chunky and have an uncomfortable fit over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the ticket Before I purchased these, I read countless reviews on a multitude of headphones of the truly wireless variety. I almost purchased a pair of the Cambridge Audio ones, as the battery life provides 3hrs more listening than these, they’re also somewhat waterproof, which is a boon in climates such as those here in the UK where you are more likely to encounter rain than sun. However, I opted for the Sonys due to the fact that not only does it provide the companion app to allow for an equaliser, I like a more bass orientated, but then I tweak the mid and high ranges also, something not available on the Cambridge Audios, the Sonys also provide noise cancelling which is actually pretty good when travelling into Birmingham city centre on peasant wagon as it blocks 99% of all noise, only over ear cans or the vacuum of space would offer 100%, (on ear cans would look a bit silly on the shaved brown bean I call my head). I digress, the slight ambient noise is really only an issue if focused on, and I humbly submit that focussing on said ambient noise, then you wouldn’t want headphones. What is also provided within the noise cancellation spectrum is the ability to intentionally allow varying degrees of ambient noise in, with the added ability to focus on voices, which is a nice touch, albeit you need to have the volume fairly low, but you can touch the left earphone which further muted the volume to enable a conversation (just remember to keep your finger on the touchpad or the volume reverts back to normal) All in all, this promised to be a better option and I sincerely believe it to be. If these had let’s say, an extra hour of battery life (7 instead of 6) and some waterproofing, these would be near perfect headphones, as it stands however, these are literally the best on the market today. Enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, but not so easy to use I received these for my Christmas present and I love the sound, but I find them difficult to control. You are suppose to tap on them for noise cancelling and ambient sound, however I can't hear any difference between these two functions. It is not possible to control the sound from the earpiece and the sometimes the sound gets crackly and since having them just over a month ago, I have already had to reset them to actually work. The instructions did not tell how to reset, but I had to google how to do this. The earpiece does not fit in to my ear very well and has fallen out couple of time, I am therefore reluctant use them outdoors or when travelling where I could lose one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good But Not Great I bought this just to try out. The main use in mind was to wear at work and at the gym. Sound quality is very good, however, for me positioning them to sound the best in my ear requires a few minutes of twist the earpiece back and forth. Call quality is hit or miss. On my end, I never had an issue. The person I'm talking to I would sound robotic. Most of this was due to a connection issue or the unit updating randomly. To talk about the connection issue it may vary. At the gym is where most issues would happen the bluetooth signal struggled with interference. Once the gym died out no more connection issues. What I was most impressed with is the sound. The depth of field, noise cancellation, DSEE, and adaptive sound control are amazing. So if you can get over the connection issue, the lack of more controls to forward and change volume, and calling issue; these are the best audio sounding true wireless earbuds I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound good... when they are working properly. I've had these for a week. Great sound when they work. But there have been several issues: A.) The left earbud continually stops working (no sound, doesn't charge). I've had to reset these earbuds twice in 3 days of listening to get the left earbud to work as it should. B.) The batteries are flawed. Full charge, and I'm getting a "low battery, please recharge" message after two hours of play. The indicator goes from 100% charged, then skips to 50% charged to 20% charged, no other increments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets a 4 since there's no 3.5 option I feel like these need work for the tweaks but have potential to be really useful and cool to use. I've had these earbuds for about a week and a half, so I'm definitely still getting used the to feeling of a wireless experience; however, I was quick to notice the little things after making the transition from apple earbuds (with cord) to these. First, I say earbuds because, honestly, headphones is so misleading: these are little buds that just go in the EAR, not over the head. My most important comment is on the connection. When I set up the earbuds las week, the app was already selected to "focus on connection" (Rather than what? I haven't tested other settings). Even with this setting, I've had issues with the bluetooth connection between the two buds so that for a split second the connection breaks or the sync between the two is off. It's a hard sensation to explain, but ultimately it messes with the listening experience. Interestingly, I haven't noticed this happening with my laptop; perhaps this is because nothing is in the way of the earbuds and the laptop, so the connection can be clear (?). On the topic of laptops, setting up the connection was a pain. They didn't come with any instruction to do this, so I had to look it up. I needed first to disconnect them manually from my phone to connect to my Mac. The overall complaint here is that since there's not a laptop app for the sound, I can't adjust the noise cancelling or sound quality. Boo. The music going from Spotify to my earbuds is all the way up in volume and is still fairly quiet, and I don't have access to the noise cancelling so there's plenty of ambient music coming in. I wish there was a way to adjust volume. Luckily, with my Apple Watch, I can do the volume from there if it's on my phone, but not everyone has an Apple Watch to use this feature. Of course I have some compliments for the product. I'm raving about how cool I look with these guys in. It's pretty typical to see AirPods nowadays so anyone with those is just basic, as we would say in college. These are unique (which means I don't need to cover the case in stickers or anything to distinguish them) and have a modern but sophisticated look. I will say though, I wish there was another option for colors, as I'd probably prefer a silver accent over coppery-pink (?). Once I figured out exactly how they sit in my ear, it's fairly easy to out them in; I've only had one fall out once, and it wasn't even in my ear all the way. I've danced around my dorm room for over an hour without any slippage (the problem here was the connection). On the topic of being a college student, I've been able to walk all around campus without having too much noise cancelling but also not having to listen to anyone around me, and I don't look stupid walking around with a five foot cord connected to my head. When the connection is working properly, the sound quality is amazing, better than any apple earbuds for sure and probably Beats too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new king! I have been wanting truly wireless earbuds with noise cancelling for quite sometime. I accidentally saw these through a review on YouTube (Unboxing Therapy) from there I Kelly looking for other reviewers and hearing what they had to say. Next day I placed my order and just received them. I must say this are by far the best sounding TW earbuds I have owned. Some people Sony missed on a couple of things and that is wireless charging and the aptX profile as well as Sony’s own LDAC also no IPX rating for waterand sweat resistance. I agree on the sweat and water resistance, the wireless charging and apt x as well as their Sony's own LDAC isn’t a deal breaker for me. I’m not an audiophile and to be honest with you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between sound profiles. The companion app is great and functional. You can control every aspect of the earbuds from the app, from setting the touch controls to ANC to sound with the EQ which you can choose from profiles to manually setting each frequency to your liking. Volume can only be controlled from your device not from the earbuds. Which is the same as the AirPods. If you’re coming from the Apple AirPods you won’t be a stranger to the way the volume works but you won’t be using your AirPods much either after listening to these. Overall these earbuds are a solid buy and I know that people may complain about the price but trust me worth every penny. The are also comfortable to wear at least for me they are. Truly wireless have come a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distinctly average After reading a lot of reviews I thought these would be the best headphones to replace my Beats X. A few weeks later and I’m missing my old headphones, the active noise cancelling cuts in and out flickering the music, the ambient sound is only any good if you turn the music off so you might as well just take the headphone out. They slowly work their way out of your ear, and because of the size you can’t lay your head on a pillow comfortably with them. On the plus sides, the music is clear and the battery lasts a good time, but personally I would just stick with something cheaper that works a little better. Its a shame as I did spend a lot of time researching for a decent replacement, should have stayed with what I know. All depends on what you want from your headphones, comfort and good tunes or something that looks good / different. Just my opinion, take it or leave it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nc, poor call quality First off, I love sony audio products. I’ve been a Sony fan since the Walkman partly because the hybrid tips provide the best fit for my ears and therefore optimizes the sound quality. However, the wf-1000xm3 are the only Sony earphones that do not provide that seal for me with the hybrid tips. The triple comfort foams did a better job but I ended up using the foam tips from my Jabras that made it super tight and secure. But they start to hurt after an hour or so ordered the comply true grips to see if they are any better. The noise canceling in great much better than the wf-1000x or sp700n. The sound quality is fantastic but I prefer the wf-1000x just because I can use the hybrid tips instead of foam. The other features are great and work as advertised. I did have to get used to the quick tap on the left bud to change nc levels but that was the only learning curve. The biggest downside is the call quality. Like others have said the robotic voices on the other end happens even in quiet environments. i am on the old firmware and hoping that Sony fixes that with the update. Currently the new update has been pulled due to incompatibility with ios13. All in all a excellent nc bud that deserves its place at the top of the true wireless earbud lists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Earphones fall off It’s working well. Battery lasts long but the earphones fall off even when I am at rest. I tried different sizes but still it falls off easily. I have to reinsert it every few seconds which is not too comfortable. I take it off everytime I go to bathroom because I’m afraid it will off to the toilet which almost happened. I hope the earbuds are anti slip.

I tried every tip, but as soon as I moved my head more than the gentlest of turns, out they popped. When they were in they sounded great, though I wasn't convinced by the noise cancelling - not much difference from on to off. I decided they weren't for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very low noise and great noise cancelling effect I am a use of SONY's wired noise cancelling earphones MDR-NC750. This latest wireless headphones produce very little residual noise to hear and the noise cancelling function is much more effective. I can fully enjoy classical music with the WF-1000XM3 headphones. The design of the headphones and the recharging case are minimal but impressive and comfortable to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated Earbuds with features to match. I have been looking for some Truly Wireless "in ear" Headphones, to replace my last set of bluetooth headphones, which died due to battery problems. I did a lot of research, looking at the reviews of lots of different branded headphones. There were numerous good reviews about Sony's earbuds, although they all highlighted a few features which they thought needed improving, which I will mention later. I already own the Sony WH1000XM2 "on ear" headphones, which are great, and I own lots of Sony products and I have always found them to be good quality reliable products so I decided to purchase their WF1000XM3. Firstly, I have to say that if Sony does prefer to have long model numbers, instead of names, it would be more helpful, if some of the model details actually bore some resemblance to what the product was...eg TWEB1000NC3 (Truly wireless earbuds..noise cancelling). As expected they just ooze quality and sophistication I love the look. I know some of their competitors may be smaller and may appear sleeker... but you have to remember Sony have managed to pack in additional technology, features, and provided great battery life and still made them more practical to use. The first thing mentioned by the Reviewers was the case being slightly bulkier than their competitors , which if your wearing a jacket or using a bag isn't a problem. I personally love the look of the case, it's the first thing I noticed. The case will fit in the pocket, but it is not really practical in say for example a pair of jeans. Maybe they could have changed the shape to make it easier to fit in a pocket, but on the basis that most men for example, if they are not wearing a coat or jacket, have their phone in one pocket ( and I never put anything else in there for fear of damaging the screen) and their wallet in the other...and from a security point of view I wouldn't put anything if value in my rear pockets. So for me the shape isn't the issue, but what would have been really useful, would have been a secure fitting on the case, with a detachable carabiner to attach to my belt. (I have bought a separate case "skin" to do this but it hides the Classy Look of the Sony case). The reviewers mentioned no support for high end codecs or even Sony's Ldac codec...maybe this would be a problem for audiophiles, but these are designed to be "mobile" and to me they sound great. If I am at home then I would use my on ear headphones, but for commuting and out and about, these are brilliant!!!!! The reviewers also mentioned that they are not waterproof or even splash proof. This is their only real weakness in my opinion. I live in the UK and it rains a lot, if I want to listen to my music whilst out walking then essentially I need to carry another set of waterproof headphones... what is the sense in that!! Also just for information, each time you put the headphones on, when activating ambient sound, a little while later I do get an annoying interruption in play back when receiving confirmation sound active, presumably whilst it is sensing whether or not you are active or still..but this is only a minor observation. However, It's the main features where these earbuds excel, I really wanted earbuds with active noise cancelling. I know in ear buds cut out some of the external noise, if they fit correctly, but I wanted something that would reduce it even more. In this respect the Sony"s perform really well, particularly for their small size. What I really like is that ability to switch between noise cancelling and ambient sound with just a simple tap of the ear bud, eg to listen to someone talking to you, and which saves a lot of the hassle of having to take an ear bud out. The other great feature of the ambient sound facility, is its ability for it to sense if you are staying still or walking. When you are moving it allows you to automatically hear what is going on around you, which is great if you are out walking and you need to be able to hear the traffic from a safety point of view...(nb: you can turn noise cancelling fully on if you want to). The tap controls may need a bit getting used to, but when you have used them a few times it becomes second nature, and much more convenient than fumbling for buttons on the earpieces. Luckily their is a great App for your phone which allows you to perform the same tasks, whilst you are getting used to it, and it also allows you to adjust additional settings, including a bass and treble equaliser. Looking at the reviews for all the ear buds, they all have their pros and cons. If Sony could make their next ones waterproof, without too much of a price increase, and maybe easier to carry around, then they would be perfect. Everything is about compromise and choice, based on what's available on the market today, I have to say that based on the quality, design and features, I am really pleased with the choice I have made ;)...and if course they sound great!!! .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound, noise cancellation, BAD call quality. This set lacking the call quality, important featrues to answer calls by double taping or even pressin any button, very slippery from the ear after wearing more than 15 minutes, tried all the bits, not very well integerated with the iPhone like the AirPod. Very expensive considerting the bad experience I have specially for the call quality. If you call from a busy place, the other side will complain allot from the background noise, its lagging, and voice quality is unstable at all. Tried to rest it according to Sony and still the same. Not good experience at all and regregt the purchae. I should have waited for the AirPods pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It looks good until it crumbles!! I had this pair of headphones almost 3 weeks ago, and this is my review: PROS ++ Amazing noise cancelling capabilities with thie small size, honestly, a huge part of the job was done here and it is really evident (+3) Although all Internet reviews said don't take it to the gym as the grip is not stable, but it works me and I can exercise with it ( Including running at 12 Km on treadmill) (+0.5) Battery life of this thing is impressive, I charge the case only once a week and I use the headphones daily for at least 8 hours (not continously of course) and I never face a problem with battery life. (+1.5) CONS - - - Very good sound quality when playing music (Expected from Sony), However, music sound extremely boosted when the noise cancelling function is on, so if you are already in a quiet environment and you want to enjoy your music without noise cancellation (To save battery) you will not have the same experience (-0.5) Problems arise when connecting these headphones to mobile phones, sometimes they just don't connect directly and the process has to be done manually (-0.5) Consistent sound distortion during calls that is reported on both android and Iphone, the other party receives a robotic version of my voice in a disturbing amd annoying matter, this is considered an entry level problem amd I can't believe that sony is making it, I tried all kinds of reset and it didn't work, also I have the latest firmware, this is a MAJOR bummer that literally ruins the experience for me (-3) That is why I have give 1/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound I have spent a lot of time and consideration in my choice off headphones, checking out many makes and models. Having spent most of my adult life promoting and managing bands, solo artists, spending endless hours in recording studios too. Up until now, I have never really found headphones that can reproduce that studio sound but my new Sony's have an awesome sound quality but having that extra portability to them. Stylish in design, right down to the rechargeable holding case. The sound you get off even MP3 files is very listenable but the Sony 360 experience is the future of headphone sound, it really does give you that in the room feel. With enough battery life to satisfy the most ardent of listeners it's been difficult to find a negative. I suppose the only downside, is that the music files you can listen to are playing catch-up but there are enough to keep your interest and there are more albums/playlists being constantly uploaded. These headphones are perfect for me and well worth a try!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Quality shines through the Sony WF-1000XMB headphones. They have a selection of interchangeable buds to ensure a tight fit. The buds charge in a super case that will recharge multiple times before itself requires a charge, drop them in and they magnetically find their housing and start to charge. A metal lid and rubberised body exuding quality. The buds fit nicely and have only dropped out once. The sound is excellent and the range from my phone is over 30ft before dropping out. The noise cancelling is good but not fantastic, but not trying over the ear phones I can't compare fairly. The controls a little confusing to get used to though Expensive but worth it

I'm regretting buying these because they have been nothing but a $250+ headache. I got my first pair from an online retailer and when I would make phone calls the person would tell me I sound like a distorted robot and couldn't understand a word I said. I called Sony and did a factory reset etc etc and nothing. Sony told me to return them- so I did. THEN I went and got my second pair at Best Buy. THEY DO THE SAME THING only THIS TIME, there is ALSO a constant high-pitched ringing that goes off. For a musician that already has tinnitus, these are NOT what I was expecting for the money. Tried to take them back to Best Buy but they would not accept them. Told me I had to contact Sony. Sony is trying to tell me to download the newest version of the app etc. I'M NOT INTERESTED. I do NOT want these or any other Sony products. I want my money back!

The surroundings pass through setting works pretty well - it magnifies the surrounding sound so it is a bit louder than without the buds. Calls are where I've run into some problems. Seems to pick up a lot of the surrounding sound when talking to someone on a call - one time the person heard the surrounding sound on the bus but not me at all (and I didn't want to shout!). Wind gives it difficulty as well. Overall pretty happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deeply disappointed After a number of technical difficulties and sending the product to be repaired, it seems that the earbuds are not made for making phonecalls. The sound quality is so bad that the other side finds it impossible to hear me even if I am in a quiet environment. This is the comment from the technical department: "Thank you for emailing us. I have spoken to the technician who has advised that the model’s primary feature is to provide high quality audio for media playback, unfortunately the audio quality during a call may still be low. Unfortunately, if you are not happy with the headphones, you would need to return them to your retailer." This kind of response for one of the supposed top performing ear phones is a sad admission of incompetence, when a GBP 10 earphone will do a better job. It also contradicts Sony's own advertisement on the website ("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.) Not what I am used to from Sony. To send me back to the retailer is also a bad case of customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really freeing experience This is my first pair of truly wireless earphones, having used larger over ear headphones before. Coming from a pair of Marshall's, I was expecting far inferior sound, but found that I didn't miss my Marshall's at all. The sound quality of the M3's are rich, loud, and have held up well to a variety of musically styles. The M3's are not heavy, and do not feel uncomfortable over long term usage(45-60 minutes). The controls take some getting use to, especially if you are expecting buttons, as each bud has it's own configurable haptic control. The lack of volume control is not as big an issue as initially expected. Having 6 hours of battery life allows for more freedom where you don't have to always carry the case around. The case itself needs some getting use to, but coming from an over ear headphone, the case is so much more compact. The noise canceling is fantastic, but also somewhat disconcerting. I find myself turning on ambient sound half the time in order to interact with people around me. Although not sweat proof, I have used these ear phones multiple times at the gym without any issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Perfect Got these recently and have been putting them through their paces, I work in loud environments making ANC work hard but could be improved, they struggle to remove lower frequency noise. I have also had a disconnect or two on very busy trains with a lot of Bluetooth devices about, this could be fault of my phone but I'm doubtful. Overall a joy to use and impressive battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first wireless earphones, BRILLIANT. Out of the box and they look great. First things first, I charged them up. It’s an age thing, I always do it. Downloaded the headphone app onto my iPhone 6S. Yes, I should read the instructions..... memo to self "do it". In the box, earphones, charging case, very short charging cable usb C, 6 extra pairs different sized ear bud tips, instructions of many languages. I prefer the light colour ones, silver opposed to the black. Okay open the smart earphone charging unit which shows a charging light when closed and remove the earphones. They light up red then flash blue. Open the app on my phone, press connect and wait. Nothing, earphones not found, try again....nope. Just by chance I open Spotify whilst I look out instructions. No need music is playing and earphone app shows we are connected. Initially sound was not to good, using the app I cycled through different pre-installed sounds. Not my type of sound so made my own. Brilliant. Two custom and one manual, now let’s get the music flowing. Oh no, must of hit something as earphone started to speaking to me, the app to the rescue. The earphones can be programmed with gesture controls and out of the box they are. Switch gesture controls off and settle in, I prefer earphones for music only. Alice Cooper's Welcome to my Nightmare started and it was okay, changed ear bud ends and there are 6 extra pairs for a better fit. Now I did look behind me as some of the track background noise "never heard before from the track" was released with the Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones. Played around again with the sound setting as the were still a touch to bright on the cymbals. Nailed it, walked around the house then out to the garden, no hiss, drop out, interference or problems. Not aware I had the earphones in as they were so comfy. Music collection set to random and really happy with these earphones. I am a convert to these, the sound is awesome, yes I did use reasonably priced wired earphones before and have been missing so much. I normally use wired earphones as I am afraid to lose the wireless ones when jogging, no fear here. When I removed one earphone the music stopped and it started to flash, great idea. So off to bed and via the app I switched them off battery power was still showing 100% left and right. that was after approx 4 hours. Next morning opened the app to connect..... nothing. Then it connected only to show Left earphone 50% and Right earphone 0% power. Into the case as that has residual charging. When I got back to them, all was well. Connected immediately and started music where it had left off. Next time after charging the Left earphone was dead no light or sound. Ah memo time, read the instruction and all was explained. Press top of earphone when in charging case. All well and still is. I have used for some time now and fine tuned the sounds to my tastes. I highly recommend. Issues as mentioned above, the charging cable is too short and is the new usb C. I bought a longer lead to have the charging unit on my table rather than dangling in mid air from my power socket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible earphones! Before buying these earphones, I did some research and read the reviews from this site. I just admit that I was a bit put off the product after reading some reviews but decided to go ahead and purchase them based on one of the beneficial reviews. I must say - some of the people writing these reviews must be trolls or something. I’ve owned a series of high end earphones in the last few years - Shure SE-846, Bose QC35II etc and have also tested Apple AirPods and these Sony’s are easily the best. The sound quality has incredible lows, mids and highs. These headphones probably pip the Bose QC35-II as the best sound quality and the noise cancelling features are on par as well. I personally found the case to be solid, high quality and a good size - contrary to some negative reviews out there. I’m at loss as to why people would review these headphones with such a low rating. Coming from someone who is an audiophile and obsessed with sound quality, these far exceeded my expectations and are better than Shure SE846 which retail at ~USD1000. Sadly, Sony products have been a fraction of what they had been in the 80’s and 90’s but they have really delivered on these headphones. If you are sitting on the fence about getting these headphones, get them! They are great value for money - I got them at 230USD and I’m finding them to be well worth the price. Well done Sony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bluetooth connection and poor noise cancellation Immediately on the first day of use, I realized that the bluetooth connection was sketchy and would disconnect every now and then even on the connection priority mode. The user guide on connecting the device and using the gestures are also very poor (those can be taken care of by searching in the internet though). It took me literally 3 hours to connect these to the MacBook Pro (very poor guide for computer connections). The sound would drop every now and then when connected to the MacBook. The noise cancellation also seems like a gimmick and is subpar. . The cellphone app is also very poorly designed and the earbuds cannot be connected by using the IOS app if it is updated to 13.1, they need connection from the bluetooth setting in IOS itself everytime. Please fix these issues if possible by software updates

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No noise canceling functionality at all. I'm on my second pair as I thought the NC was faulty, ran through all the trouble shooting (sony's tips shows you NC optimisation function which does not exist: https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/support/wireless-headphones-bluetooth-headphones/wf-1000xm3/articles/00223302 ), tried all the buds, firmware upgrade seems disabled - I'm stick on 1.2.3, the support on the website consists of a lot of 'have you turned NC on' and a set of questions that swap symptoms from 'hearing noise' to 'sounds dropping' half way through. They sound quite good but no NC functionality at all, registered the product for support and there is none, sticking with my chinese NC over ears which cost £50 - really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good headphones.. with a couple of issues Whenever I bought the product I automatically knew if I bought from Sony I was probably going to get a really really good product. These headphones (which I use everyday) have brought a couple of issues. On the phone, I sound like a robot to the people I call (practically scaring them). This issue is not a one time thing either. This happens everytime I call someone or someone calls me. Bluetooth takes awhile to connect to my phone if I already have something playing. Music wise everything is great. The noise-cancelling (in moderation) is pretty good, but the main issues are the calls and bluetooth issues. I would recommend this product if the call issues get fixed since most people buy these for that very purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not perfect but still amazing Let's start with the things I do not like. Adaptive Sound Control. When I was watching or reading reviews this sounded like a great thing, I may in the future use it should I be going through a train station or airport when it would be good to have it monitoring the environment and allowing announcements to come through clearly but on my regular commute (taxi or bus mostly) this is not needed. The reason I find this so annoying is that the transition from one setting to another is painful with the tone being played and then a brief moment of silence. None of the reviewers had described that so it surprised me. Lack of volume control; Come on Sony, seriously? I am really hoping that this function is going to be added with a firmware update that will make me very happy. Play/pause is the number one thing I will use the touch control for, volume would come a close second. What do I love? Firstly the design is top-notch. I have seen people complain that they accidently touch the touch-control when handling these, I have no problem with that, there is ample room to hold either earpiece between thumb and two or even three fingers. They sit comfortably in my ears and I have found that once they are seated correctly they will stay there. I don't exercise so I don't know about them holding fast during the vigour of sport or such. The case is beautiful if a little bulky but the earpieces are quite large compared to many others so it has to be that way, I wish the hinge on the lid had a little resistance when it was operating, I don't like how the lid will swing freely. I have bought a silicone sleeve to hopefully avoid scratching the lovely copper top, I just wish there was an official Sony case, I would have dropped a bit more money on buying that. This is by far the most expensive pair of headphones I have ever purchased but they are certainly the best sounding that I have ever used by far. Sound quality tends to be quite hard to judge as it is subjective and personal to the listener, especially if you have no idea about bit-rate and what that means to what comes out of the speakers/ headphones. I listen to FLAC, I have a good set of speakers (2.1) attached to my PC and I appreciate the full sound you get with hi-def audio. That being said I wasn't expecting to hear anything new when using these, but I did. It would be cliché to say that it is like listening to music for the very first time but the experience has really been enhanced. I have heard some vocals where I could tell who it was singing, in the past I thought it was a guest artist on the backing vocal but it was clear that there was only one person singing. I have heard instruments that I never knew where there in the studio. I even heard a short conversation between two tracks that I’d never heard in the 18 years since that album came out. This could all be put down to the headphones I had used in the past being nothing special, but I had been happy with those and now I am amazed and ecstatic with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pitiful noise cancelling We are trying to set these up for my wife but so far the noise cancelling is just about nil. It may be because they always seem to loosen in the ear - we've both tried with each of the different earbuds but none of them hold the earpieces securely in our ears, letting ambient noise leak past. We ran comparisons against my Bose QC 30s, which are not the best example of Bose's noise cancelling, and the QC 30s completely blew the 1000XM3s away. Night and day. Beyond that, they're finicky to work with a little touch to adjust them in your ear and they're doing something different. The only reason I'm not giving them 1 star is that the sound playback is very nice - they might almost be viable if that was the mode they were intended to be used in, but we're after a quiet space. We're going to try for a day or two more and if we can't get them working they're going back for a refund that can be put against a set of the QC 30s, even if that means wearing a collar.

This is not even comparable to my Bose Soundsport when it comes to comfort! 2) no ipx rating 3) sound skips a split second sometimes, even sound quality was already lowered (the more when sound quality was its maximum)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Sony almost defined perfection with these earbuds. They check off nearly all the boxes: Small stylish design for the buds and charger/storage case; decent battery life; and exquisite noise cancellation. The sound quality is among the best I have heard used, with excellent and customizable bass. The mids and highs are equally balanced and clear. I am a real audiophile, and I own just about every pair of high-end earbuds and earphones on the market today. These earbuds easily dominate the current market with two exceptions: 1) noise cancellation; and 2) call clarity. First, the noise cancellation is easily the best for wireless earphones, but it differs from Sony's high-end earphones or other competitor's full earphone (cans). However, in a small form factor some of this is expected. Buds are never going to seal like over-the-ear headphones. The noise cancellation filters out about 90% of background noise, but it is still there. The background noise is most prominent when you are not playing music, so you cannot use these to medicate or tune out background noise; it works best with music to override the remaining background noise. However, one of my favorite features, which I have not found on any other earbud/earphone, is Sony's auto adapt noise cancellation feature. The earbuds listen to outside sound and automatically adjust the level of noise cancellation. For example, the earbuds correctly switched from transit mode while I was on the train to walking when I got off the train. This is a spectacular feature for commuters using different transportation. I had maximum noise cancellation on the train, but when I was in traffic I could hear the cars and nearby noises. The adapt feature works correctly about 98% of the time. The second main area where these earbuds need improvement is their calling feature. The earbuds are unfortunately useless when making a telephone call. While I heard callers loud and clear, people consistently could never hear me – even in quiet rooms. I hope Sony will correct this issue with a firmware update. This lack of telephone clarity prevents these earbuds from being the commuter's ultimate earbuds. Sony did a great job with the phone app, which is rare among even the best audio companies. Often the app is a huge downfall. The app has a variety of custom equalizers, plus the ability to set and customize your own. It expertly controls the features of the earbuds, including the level of noise cancellation and auto adapt function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have!! I recently purchased the Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Earbuds, to replace my old wired headphones. I travel a great deal for work, and when I'm on a plane I like to disconnect completely! These earbuds are the perfect travel companion. The charging case is sleek and the charging time is excellent! The fit on these earbuds was ideal for me, as most earbuds don't fit my ear. These fit snuggly into my ear and doesn't hurt my ear canal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect and improved from previous models 1) Active Noise Canceling improved over previous 1000 and 700 models. 2) Battery life greatly improved and impressive recharge quickness with case. 3) Not quite as secure in the ears as the 700n model but lighter, smaller and stay in nearly as well during movement. I have jogged in these and had no issues with staying in or being loose. They don’t quite stay in as tight for isolation as the 700n when exercising but the extra noise canceling and wider sound field make up for it. 4) Sound quality and width/ depth of field is very much improved. The sound is expansive and articulated. The 700n was very good but sometimes had too much bass with a tight figment and perhaps slightly muddy with some of the EQ settings. The new 1000xm3 are not quite as bass heavy but have just as much power on the really low end without being muddy. They also respond to EQ settings better and have options now for custom EQ settings to be saved. 5) They are not listed as moisture resistant so I’ve just been careful during exercise and hope for them to hold up. I wear and sweat band to keep them dry. I find it hard to believe that they took a step backwards in this regard, so perhaps they had issues with the performance and water resistance of the 700n relative to warranty repairs and just elected to take that rating off in order to make sure it’s not abused....who knows! In any case this is a trade off that’s worth the other improvements. 6) They are not cheap but are priced competitively especially with the offered features. 7) Case looks great and works well. They magnetic lid and magnetic fit for the buds in the case is a considerable upgrade to the 700n. Charging in the case as previously mentioned is also impressively quick. These are THE ear buds to own right now and will help to push other brands technology. These with water resistance and an ear hook design like the 700n would be perfection. Please spend me the next prototype to demo and review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 Days living with my Sony WF-1000XM3 earphones Out of the box, the first step of pairing the earphones was straightforward, and was relatively simple to connect the earphones to my smartphone. Once connected, the dedicated Sony app (that you'll need to download) takes over and you can configure the earphones to suit your own personal preferences. The earphone storage container/charger will charge the earphones fully up to three times from its own battery. Handy when you're away from a charging point for a prolonged period as it ensures your earphones remain ready for use. Things became a little more complicated when preparing to use the earphones. The simple act of taking an earphone out of the storage container activates it. By the time you get the earphones inserted into your ear, and adjusted for a comfortable fit, you've missed the automated voice messages informing you of their Bluetooth connection status. Furthermore, as both earphones have control surfaces you can interact with (configured by the Sony app), it is at least for me, impossible to insert the earphones without accidently touching the control surface and issuing the pre-programmed command. Sony have designed the earphones to become fully enabled when they are in the correct listening position, but this doesn't always work, and I find myself dashing to insert the earphones before I miss the start-up messages and doing my best not to touch the control surfaces. It's a real bind and could be solved in two ways. (1) If the earphones each had a physical on/off switch, you could insert the earphones properly and at your own pace and then activate them when you are ready. (2) Have a user defined time delay controlled by the Sony app, which senses when the earphones have been removed from the storage/charging container and counts down before fully activating Bluetooth and become responsive. I've also had instances when I've removed the earphones temporarily, and have just put them down, but not back into their container. The earphones are supposed to switch off after 5 minutes when they sense they've been removed, but this doesn’t always happen despite being enabled correctly within the Sony app. The consequence is they continue to use power, and if you're still within Bluetooth range your phone remains connected. Also, if you just put the earphones down and they have powered off after 5 minutes, picking them up to move them elsewhere, activates them again. The only sure-fire way cure is to always store them in their container, but that is not always convenient or possible. I have now got into the habit of removing the earphones, and after putting them down, shutting the earphones down manually from within the Sony app, and double checking the Bluetooth connection has been closed. These are all minor niggles, but it does mean each user needs to understand the implications of how they use and interact with the earphones. The upside is how well they perform. In use with my iPhone Xs, connectivity has remained rock solid, and I've suffered no drop-out. The supplied range of replaceable earbuds to fit onto the earphones is enough to cater for all sizes of ear canal, ensuring a comfortable fit offering good noise isolation. When coupled with the noise cancellation the earphones also offer, you truly are in a world of your own. Sound quality is superb making for great listening, though be aware, they will expose low quality audio recordings (e.g. 128 kb/s mp3) for what they are, offering you a quiet enough listening environment where you'll notice. Supply the Sonys with decent source material and you'll appreciate how good they are. I mentioned previously the control surfaces each earphone has. There are a range of commands available via the Sony app you can use to configure the earphones to respond with, depending on your preferences. I have the right-hand earphone programmed to pause and skip forward/back tracks, and the left-hand earphone to control the playback volume. Useful and it saves you having to dig your mobile phone out to perform the same functions. As for rating the earphones, my own personal rating would be as follows. Connection to smart phone and setup 4/5 Handling of the earphones when either getting ready to use them, or putting them down temporarily 1/5 Noise isolation and noise cancelling 5/5 Sony app functionality 3/5 Sound quality 5/5 Overall 4/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phone Call Quality Poor First of all let me start with the fact that I am huge Sony Fan. My house is full of high end Sony products including a pair of WH-1000XM3 over the ear headphones that I have owned for a couple years now and are exceptional. The one downfall is that they are large and in a light and fast business travel environment I was looking for a smaller solution. Enter the Truly Wireless WF's! When I shopped for these I skipped everyone else by default and went straight for the Sony product. I needed a small set of wireless earbuds that could handle the music end as well as the phone call from the airport/conference call piece. Out of the charging case these seemed to fit the bill perfectly until I called my wife for the first time from the airport and she literally hung up on me due to the fact that the outside noise was so invasive she could not hear me. I experimented with ambient noise settings, played in the application and tried moving to quieter environments but the situation did not improve. It literally seemed as if the earbuds pulled in the noise from outside and amplified it! Nothing I did fixed it. Surfing the internet chat boards I discovered that it wasn't just me having this issue, it is a known issue online. I called Sony customer service, their suggestion was I reset the headphone to factory settings and re-set the earbuds up. No acknowledgment of the issue just a reset suggestion. Of course this did not work, neither did the updates clear the issue. I finally returned them and I am currently testing the products form other manufacturers. The Sony's sound great, they are comfortable, the battery life is good and the noise canceling is exceptional. But if you need to rely on earbuds to perform on phone calls I cannot in good conscience recommend these. These earbuds are truly disappointing in this regard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound great, one problem So far I love these ear buds. They're comfortable, sound great, ANC works well for me while I'm at my desk and surrounded by co-workers. Battery life is also excellent. The only problem I'm having is that for some reason the earbuds are not able to connect independently as they should. It worked at first, but without making any sort of change to my phone or buds, it just stopped. I've contacted support but their only response is to send me the part of the manual that shows how it's SUPPOSED to work. NOT helpful! I now have to remove both earbuds from the case to listen to just the right one. If I leave the left bud in the case the buds won't connect to my Pixel 3XL. If I remove them both they'll connect but if I put the left bud back in the case they disconnect. One reason I got these buds (besides the ANC) was the ability to just use one bud at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Annoying to use, overshadows audio quality I was really excited to get this product and am really happy with the audio quality, but every time I interact with them other than when they are in my ears playing music, they bother me. Without the case, you can't turn them off without opening and connecting to the app on your phone, which doesn't happen quickly or seamlessly every time (and its frankly crazy that you can't turn them off via the headset), OR there's a setting to have them turn off if you first turn off whatever you are playing and then leave them COMPLETELY undisturbed for 5 minutes. In either case, you HAVE TO touch your phone to turn them off. But then you can't put them in your pocket/purse and expect them to stay off; they constantly turn themselves back on with any amount of jostling. I even tried to disable the buttons entirely but this doesn't help. You MUST carry the case around with you for them to stay off. I knew it was bulkier than other charging cases like my old Jabra one, but I didn't expect to have to also carry it around. I hope there is some feature that I'm not aware of that solves this problem but I haven't found it. Other issues I knew upfront that ended up bothering me more than I expected: The overall size of the earbud Lack of audio control on the earbuds themselves They charge via USB-C and this is the only device I have that uses this charge type. The included charger is very short, so if I keep these I will have to buy a longer USB-C cord or an adapter Again, size of the charging case (because I did not expect to have to carry it around all the time) I'm still TBD whether I want to keep these because of the annoying functionality, not the sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality & Refined Looks Sony’s latest version of their wireless earbuds are a great improvement on the last model. Firstly the carry case yes it a bit on the large size but it still fits nicely in your pocket & I love the rose gold lid & the almost rubberised feel of the black body. The earbuds slide in nicely aided by the magnets to keep them in place so you know there charging. And that slightly larger case is worth it when it act as a power bank for added charge to your earbuds. Only negative is the case doesn’t have wireless charging but I can’t hold that against it when it gives me a minimum of 6 extra hours of power. Now the main event the earbuds, simple classic black looks with slight rose gold touches, yes again they are a little on the large size but they pack so much inside. First off you need to choose the correct size buds for your ears there’s no excuse you get several to choose from. Get the fit right & it will help with the quality of the noise cancelling & also make them feel more secure in your ear. Sound quality is amazing I tried it with various types of music & every time they didn’t disappoint & even with the volume turned up there was no distortion. Then the all important noise cancelling, how can it be so good in earbuds? Okay it’s not perfect in extremely loud situation & getting the bud size right helps but still wow it’s impressive.How did they fit all this in such a small package. I didn’t have any connectivity issues no Bluetooth drop outs and I did use Sony’s Headphone app which I suggest you use as it has a few extras on there that you can tweak if you so wish. Again one slight bug bear is that you can only pair one device at a time which is slightly frustrating. Using them for phone calls was okay while using them no one complained they had issues hearing me they did say it was obvious I was using a headset conversation on both sides could be heard without having to repeat anything. Buttons or touch pads? I prefer the circular touch areas rather than physical buttons yes sometimes you may inadvertently knock them when you are adjusting them but they are much easier than a physical button & again via the app you can change what they do. Only negative on this is that there is no ability available to change the volume level on the buds but you can’t have everything. The only other thing I want to mention is they have no IP rating so i would be slightly worried about using them at the gym or getting caught outside in the rain but fingers crossed when I do they will be okay. So if like me you really want some wireless earbuds that can deliver on sound quality & as an added bonus have wonderful noise cancelling capabilities & plenty of playtime thanks to it’s charging case then these are the ones to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So wanted these to be good Some time ago i bought the Sony WH-1000XM3 over ear headphones and was really impressed with the sound quality so when these were released it was an easy decision I wanted something i could wear when travelling so I purchased the black variety. Initial impression was good, packaging was impressive and typical of what we have seen from the big manufacturers now. The case the buds sit in is impressive with magnets holding the buds in place, they could have used slightly less powerfull magntes though as they are sometimes difficult to remove. Sound quality is once again superb with the ambient surround sound being dealt with adequately (not as good as over ear but still good). Battery life is also really good and easily capable of 4 to 5hrs continuous use (Ive not used for longer) before dropping back in the case for charging. So then we get to the in ear fit and this is where i am struggling, they dont stay in constantly falling out, they have never felt secure from the very fist time i put them in, Ive tried all the different rubber tips with no success, why they didn't use the foam tips which expand in your ear I dont know. Its so bad I no longer use them and am thinking about returning them, such a shame as the sound quality is some of the best out there (I have Bose set as well). Im giving it one last short Ive ordered a set of foam tips online, have also ordered a pair of Jabra these have started to drop bluetooth connection now as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise Cancelling Feature is subpar Been using it for few days, changed the eartips provided but non really fitted to seal tightly in my ears to block off the surrounding noises. Then I bought Comply eartips and hope to fix the issue but no luck. I had a pair of B&O E8 2.0 and been using them for the past 2 years. Comparing the two, I found WF-1000XM3 dont “reach” far inside the ear canal and in my opinion that might be the reason why I could hear a lot of surrounding sounds with or without the ANC turn on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, horrible connectivity!! Nothing to complain about the sound and noise canceling, they are both great but the connectivity it’s abysmal. Took a good 10 min to pair them with my iPhone X. After trying to unsuccessfully pair them with my MacBook Pro I contacted Sony and I was told that this model it’s only compatible with phones, EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING!!!! Now I need to carry with me my old Bose QuietComfort 20 wired earbuds to use with my laptop. I hope they can push out an over the air update and make them compatible with laptops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent audio quality and battery life Love this headphone especially the audio quality when compared to AirPods Pro. The noise canceling is excellent and the batter life is definitely a huge plus. Highly recommended. P.S. Buy a spinfit cp360 ear tips and you will be able to wear this all day long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good overall, but a software fix needed I've been using fairly expensive wired headphones/earbuds on my phone (which I use as my mp3 player) until now. I won't mention the make as it wasn't Sony. I have always thrown away the relatively poor quality earbuds that come bundled with some phones & mp3 players & bought quality earbuds separately instead as good sound quality for music is important to me. Decided I now wanted the convenience of wireless. Checked out various review sources & it seemed that the Sony WF-1000xm3 score highly, although they are expensive. But I don't mind paying more for good quality. I've been using them for a while now & my conclusions are as follows: Maybe it's a matter of personal preference, but for me the flat sound (i.e. with no alteration of EQ) of the WF-1000xm3 earbuds is a little too fierce in the mid, upper mid & high frequency bands. However, Sony's companion app that runs on my phone has a graphic EQ, & with a little judicious re-drawing of the EQ curve that can be fixed. I did spend some time playing tracks I know well & tweaking the graphic EQ settings whilst I was getting to know the sound of these earbuds, but the end result was I have an EQ curve that sounds great on everything & I never touch it now. So it's just as well that the Sony app has this graphic EQ feature as for me it's essential for a good sound. For me, the fit is comfortable and they don't fall out. The carry case that holds them recharges them whilst they are in it, which is a neat idea that helps ensure the earbuds are fully charged every time you take them out to use them. Of course you will need to recharge the case via a USB lead every so often. There is one issue that really bugs me about these earbuds, but it ought to be fixable with a software update. I really hope Sony fix it. This issue is this. The earbuds feature a voice guide that delivers messages about device status etc whilst in use. The Sony app allows 'Notification and Voice Guide' to be switched off - but with a catch. Sony state it here: "Some important notifications and guidance will not be disabled even if the setting is set to off". Some messages cannot be disabled, & the crucial one for me is the voice message, "Please recharge headset, power off" which booms out just before the batteries go flat. Sometimes I like to fall asleep at night listening to something, e.g. recorded nature/environment sounds. These earbuds have a battery life of around 6 hours from fully charged. So when I use these to listen & fall asleep, just under 6 hours into my sleep I get woken up with a booming message, "Please recharge headset, power off". It's happened a few times now, with the result that I am back to use my old wired earbuds for falling-asleep-at-night listening. It's a stupid design flaw that the user cannot stop the device from delivering this voice message. I don't need Sony to wake me up to tell me that the earbuds need recharging. I already know that they will be flat in the morning, when I will put the earbuds in their case & they will quickly recharge. Sony need to release a software update that makes it possible to switch off ALL voice messages. There is no sensible reason not to.
