Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I bought these wireless headphones after trawling through a lot of reviews of a range of similar products. This product provides the user with a selection of different sized 'ear tips' to choose from which is very useful if like me you have small ears. The product was exceptionally easy to set up even for a technophobe like myself. At the moment I have only used them for short runs but am really pleased with them. The sound is very clear even when using the ambient setting. It is brilliant not to have to faff about with wires!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What noise cancelling I bought these about 2 months ago. Once I changed the ear fittings my experience was much better. However, all the hype about noise cancellation, what noise cancellation? Even with the smallest ear pieces this has never been achieved. In fact for noise cancellation they perform no better than my husbands much cheaper earbuds. Plus the beeps and annoying announcements are distracting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever had Forced to go to BT as new phone only has USB-C. These ear buds get good reviews for a reason. Incredible clear sound and the crispest bass I've ever heard. Very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great - just need to get the right fit! Bought these to replace my previous Sony 1000X headphones that I use for work calls and were getting very worn. Love the new set! Great that I can use either or both ears. Some challenges trying the different ends to see which fits best - I'm still trying them out. Some strange robotic sounds with Windows at times but it then seems to sort itself out when I put them back into the case and take them out again. Overall happy and hopefully fit the fit sorted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have bought these in 2019. I've been using these buds every day for around a month now, absolutely excellent. Sound quality is great, noise cancelling is far better than I thought possible with buds (obviously the over ear ones are better but these are amazing). I've had no issues with Bluetooth connectivity, once I got them connected to everything I want them to work with, so that's my Xperia 1 iii, my Walkman A105 and my Windows laptop. I can't fault the buds but the tiny instruction leaflets I always ignore because I just go online, that's where my only issue arrived. Straight out the box they connected with the Sony devices using the connect app but with the laptop, I wasn't sure how to connect them. Under the "Connect With Bluetooth" or whatever the page was called, it told you how to connect to things with the app, there is no app for Windows. There was also no link to a completely different page that showed you the controls to activate Bluetooth (hold both touch sensors, if you're wondering). There is a video which of course is for the XM4 headphones but that's less than useless, unless you are trying to connect a set of headphones, not buds... Anyhoo. I found out how to do it and all is well, a quick line or link added to that one page on the website and I wouldn't have a gripe at all, not often I can say that about a product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very decent earbuds Very pleased with this earbuds. They fit quite comfortably and they sound great. The pairing is also very easy, and they connect instantly when I need them. The only issues I have found are interruptions when the software is figuring out if you're standing or sitting. It would be a lot better if sound was just quietened during this process, rather than cut out entirely. Having said that, the interruption is very short, and not too glaring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great earphones, noise cancelling is superb. I recently sold my AirPods Pro which were excellent but I found the bass a bit lacking and I could never get the fit perfect. I decided to buy the Sony WF-1000XM3 which have deeper bass and a better fit. Also I bought them half price. Great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is brilliant Once set up they sounded brilliant so 5 out of 5 for that. However, I found them tricky to set up and didn’t seem to sync with the app (which I already had for my over the ear Sony headphones) consistently and they seemed to do things on their own which was a bit annoying. It also takes a bit of time to get the right fit for the ear. But overall, really good so 4 out of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They fundamentally don't work I had a pair of Jabra elite active 65t headphones, which were great and worked right out of the box bit failed within six months. They wouldn't turn on, paired inconsistently, just became more irritating to use than anything else. So while in the US at Target, I saw the Sony WF-1000XM3 and thought, "why don't I spend a little more for the good brand". My word I wish I hadn't and now I'm back in the UK I can't return them so have just thrown my money out the window. There are three main issues: My previous headphones could sync with more than one device simultaneously. I could use them for work, on video calls, and when I got up to go for a run, they would unsync with the laptop when out of range and play from my phone without any manual intervention on my part. Not so with these useless things. I have to open the app on the phone to switch the source from the laptop to the phone and then open Bluetooth settings on the laptop to do the reverse. I have no idea why this is required and it's a pain. Noise cancelling. The box makes a song and dance about how good the noise cancelling is but it's non-existent. If I make a call outside the house using them the caller on the other end can hear buses and sirens and wind, but not me. Changed the settings, nothing. Switched the ear buds to different sizes, nothing. You CAN NOT use these for calls. Sound! The sound quality is really good but there are CONSTANT drop outs. I'm talking several times in one song. A quick sub-second interruption that means the song is ruined, you miss words in a podcast and it adds up to never being sure if the source is the issue or not. I get it with Spotify, YouTube literally any source. This never happened with the cheaper Jabra headphones that I use in the literally exact same environment of my house. I reset them, I factory reset them, I tried every setting, nothing works. They're just bad. Terrible terrible things that don't work and make everything harder and nothing easier. I hate them. I genuinely, passionately hate them and Sony for something this bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rather disappointing The sound quality is superb, but they did not fit well - they kept falling out. I followed the advice and tried ever bigger ear tips and achieved an acceptable fit with the largest size. But still no noise cancellation. So I bought very expensive memory foam tips in the hope of an even better fit. Fit is now very secure but noise cancellation still has little or no impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound, terrible for calling Bought this 2 weeks ago and have had to return it. They are great for listening to music and sound cancelling is amazing but that's it. When you need to make a call or if someone is calling you forget it. No one could hear me, they could here everything outside but they could not hear my voice which is not practical. Just a word of advice Sony, if your making headphones and they are not built for taking calls, make it known on the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dodgy Bluetooth, Battery and Not Great Sound! I've had a bad experience with these. A constantly stuttering bluetooth connection on multiple devices, poor battery life of less than 90 minutes and a sound quality that was not great either. I sent them back to Sony to be repaired but they just sent them back saying they were working to spec. Very poor all round I'm afraid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for music but poor call sound quality I can't complain about sound quality when it comes to listening any kind of music, noise cancelling is pretty good but I am issuing some weird noises during any form of voice call (windows/android, meetings (zoom, webex, teams) or phone call. It is definitely plus to have option and connect only one (left or right) earbud but BIG MINUS is: not possible to connect two devices at the same time (this is something that would not be a problem with current Bluetooth version, you have to agree). It is so panful to connect other device whenever I want to use one even with setting shortcuts :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Just started using these earbuds and have found them to work well. Still not sure, even after studying the online manual, what are the different modes selected on tapping the left earbud. Can you have noise cancelling and active noise reduction at the same time or is it one or the other. Bit confusing to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound but I cannot get them to stay in! I bought the ear phones as a replacement for AirPods but I am disappointed as no matter which size of the buds I use they seem to fall out. I bought them specifically for running as the noise cancellation gets good reviews but I have to keep pushing them in which is very annoying especially as the sound quality they produce is EXCELLENT!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound poor fit I bought these having considered battery life and slightly bulky case. The sound is great. However they just keep falling out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Somewhat disappointed I bought this a few weeks ago, yes, I'm still getting around them but so far, the sound is good, the bass is top and clear. I wish though that they would be able stick and not fall at constant movement. I'm not a favourite of external apps, so inconvenient and cumbersome to always having to go to the phone to twerk the sounds etc,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece of kit but... Glad that I bought these but since they are so excellent in most departments I would have thought Sony would have paid a bit more attention to the essential of ensuring that they fit in the ear well and securely. This is the only downside of these headphones, and is common for all in-ear headphones - can the wit of man not do better? So I have had one drop out and at any other time it could've been the last of the earphone. Now the alternative buds that can be changed neither have the range nor the friction/suction to ensure a secure feeling and actual fit. Perhaps I'll find my perfect bud! The noise-cancelling and ambient sound settings have to be heard or (not heard) to be believed - extraordinary!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent headphones Have tried inner ear headphones before but always found ambient noise a pain, hello WF-1000XM3. Thought I would give them a go having read some reviews and so glad I did, sound quality is great, noise cancelling brilliant. They appeared bulky and a bit heavy when I got them out of their case but once in the ear, which was a great fit without having to change the earbuds, hardly knew I was wearing them. The only downside is that they are not water/sweat proof, but as long as you remember that I think they are still first class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - some areas for improvement These are really good earbuds, obviously they don't match up against the over-ear range so don't go buying these with the expectations of having that same level of quality. The noise cancelling feature, and the ambient sound control is really what stands this product apart from the others. In this regards, it's unmatched! The app could do with some work in terms of connecting to the phone properly. Design - i hate that the product can't stand up properly and has to be laid flat. Just a personal preference. The ear bud tips provided are useless also. Have gone through a number of forums, many users recommend using 3rd party ear tips for better sound quality and in-ear grip. Overall: Good product, just some areas for improvement ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and great sound quality. Did some research and saw these were recommended by What HiFi. A bit more expensive than I'm used to paying for headphones but I'm glad I did. Great connectivity even with my 4 Yr old Samsung phone and the sound quality sounds superb to my untrained ears. The associated app let's you fiddle with settings as to what each control button does and there's a graphic equalizer as well. One tip I recommend is turning off the audible tone when the active noise cancellation feature is running. I move around alot at work between areas of varying noise and every time the earbuds switch modes the tone is really annoying. Easy to negate and no longer a problem. Overall, I'm extremely happy with this purchase and would recommend highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great features Easy to use & quick to set up with the associated Sony Headphones app. Sound is excellent for a pair of earbuds, but their ability to deal with noise cancelling is the best I've com across in a pair of ear phones in a manner that reminiscent of their big brother WH headphones. Only issue I have is accessing the 360 compatible tracks on service providers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise cancelling name is misleading Firstly these do not cancel noise. They reduce it. I bought these for my walks, and often I'm along quite a busy road. They are a huge improvement on my old standard earphones. I can hear traffic much less... But it is not cancelled out. I've tried all settings and configuring on the app, and I have it the best I can get it to be. There are also difficult to fit in the ear comfortably. They do come with plenty ear fittings in different sizes but unfortunately none seem suitable for me.. Once I twist them in I have to give them a good hard push so they don't feel like they will fall out, which after a while becomes very uncomfortable. The gyms are closed so haven't had the chance to try them on the treadmill etc, but I'm expecting them to be a nuisance during a lot of movement. Honestly I regret not sending them back

Noise cancelling feature works GREAT except for when I shifted my arm to stretch every now and then to be alarmed by the "BEEP; NOISE CANCELLING, OFF" or "NOISE CANCELLING" which made it hard to tell when it was actually on or off. It would also beep randomly sometimes, I'm guessing to re-calibrate its pairing to my phone. Annoying, nonetheless the sound quality was good. Biggest issue: I could never get it to work with my macbook pro, which was a huge reason why I wanted it. It was useless unless I was listening to music on my phone, which was fine, and I spent many hours listening with these before I dropped one in the ocean on a vacation. My fault, but even when I called their customer service to ask about pairing issues and to see if I could buy an individual ear bud at a reduced cost, or to get a newer version that actually DID pair with my macbook, I was informed that "there are no programs for this and the version is the most current we have" which means they haven't fixed the pairing issues besides software upgrades, and if you lose 1 headphone piece you have to buy a whole new set over again. TL;DR go buy an apple product instead of this and save yourself the headache. unless you're only going to be pairing it with a phone, in which go ahead and purchase this and you'll get a lot of life out of them. unless you like jogging or doing yoga while you're listening to music. In that case, just spend the entire time stressed it will fall out or you will accidentally poke the 'pause' button, because this will happen frequently. they are definitely more 'light walking, sitting in a train' headphones than active headphones

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good audio, !!!!Software bug!!!! I got these a little less than a month ago and I really enjoy the product after switching from airpods pro, but a major fault is that the battery life always reads at max charge even in the app, when I put in the earbuds they tell me that they are fully charged and the app tells me that the case is charged too, but i haven’t charged them in days to see what was up and the case began to flash red, overall a great product but the software needs more support, they are very large as well which isn’t terrible but its something to consider when buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from long term review on sony WF-1000XM3 I have been using this unit for more than a year so below is my long term review on this unit: 1) Sound quality: Good. but i find klipsch T5 sport or airpod pro are better. 2) Fit: Poor. hard to sit properly or still in my ear canal. 3) Noise Cancellation: Average. it’s working but since the fit is not proper, there are rooms for exterior noise to penetrate 4) Ambience mode: Good. I can clearly hear my surrounding. 4) Connectivity: Good. easy to connect and swap between devices with no drop connection issue 5) Post warranty support: Poor. my left earbud is facing battery drain issue where it can only last 1 hour + only. Brought it to sony service centre (SSC) and he advised me that the left unit has to be totally replaced which will cost me 300++. If SSC advised the option of which the battery varta cp1254 A3 can be changed, at least there is an alternative to consider. Conclusion: average WNC earbud to own but i would rather spend the same value of money else where

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets? These headphones connected immediately with my i-phone and the sound quality is very good. But the connection breaks up quite a lot particularly if I'm on the move, despite keeping my i-phone close to the headphones. This is week 1 and I am hoping the connection issue will resolve: if not then I will feel very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but not great. I wanted to get away from wired over ear headphones. Oppo pair showing signs of wear. In ear wireless more convenient but they come with their own 'challenges'. Keeping them in was initially an issue and I nearly gave birth to two dozen kittens when I thought I'd lots one in a supermarket. Lucky me - it had dropped into the hood on my jacket. I could only rely on reviews as to their sound quality. It taught me yet again that What? HiFi produced yet another poor showing in their 'august' rag. Where the Oppo set produced sharp, clear highs (cymbals, hi-hats), these Sony jobs aren't there. They're okay but they are not of the stature mentioned by What? HiFi. The mids and bass however, are good as are voices. Their convenience outweighs their ostensible shortcomings. Some recordings aren't great with splashy and fuzzy cymbals. Other albums are okay assuming they've been well recorded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ear Buds keep falling out - useless I just bought this product recently. It comes with a set of ear buds of similar sizes. So far I have tried most of the ear buds but all of them keep falling out of my ears and on to the ground. All the beds seem to be too loose for my ears and my ears are perfectly normal size. Bad design. Unfortunately because of Covid19 I was not allowed test them before buying. I would not have bought them had I known about the problems with the ear buds falling out and would not recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most expensive annoyance ever I received a pair of headphones for Christmas and the person who bought them for me did not listen to the full reason that I wanted a new pair of really good headphones. I stated I wanted them for work, so I could listen to them on my forklift. But you can only have one earbud in at a time.so you can still hear other lifts coming near you. They purchased a very very expensive, nice set of Beats by Dre “over the head” headphones or whatever they are called. I returned them to bestbuy and was shocked to see the total on my gift card was $210 to spend on headphones. For the last few months I had been using a pair of “off brand” wireless headphones at work that I purchased at Meijer for about $35-$40. They weren’t bad, I just figured a better pair would yield me longer battery life, hopefully a higher max volume, and the ability to use the left or right earpiece individually. (My cheaper set would only let you use the right side one if you were only using one.) So, after standing in the aisle for 45min to an hour+, I finally decided to get the more expensive pair of Sony earbuds. I have used Beats headphones for the last 10 years or so and have always loved them but I wasn’t really into the styles that were available. Obviously Sony is a great brand and makes some high quality products so I was confident that these would be everything I wanted and probably more... when I finally got to work, a few days after purchasing, and started actively using them daily I noticed it had just disconnected for no reason...... On the very first day. And then I was just kind of confused as it would not show up on my phone... but the earpiece was on still. I just stood there, staring at my phone and the ear piece for a minute or so, and finally I heard it re-connect to the Bluetooth. I didn’t think much of it. Although I did immediately think “That’s weird, my cheaper set that I have never once disconnected like that. Oh well. Who knows? Maybe I accidentally hit a button or something.” By the end of the day this happened at least four or five times. If I would hit the button to use the voice to text on my phone, it would usually confuse the headset, then make it disconnect as well. I started thinking maybe I had a setting wrong or something just not right in the settings app that you put on your phone to connect with these headphones. I was wrong. For no reason whatsoever, these headphones continue to just disconnect. I’m pretty upset about it honestly. I had a $40 or less set of headphones but never once had this issue but this set is five times the price and causes me more frustration on a daily basis than any headset or earbuds I’ve ever used. I plan on contacting Sony to see what they suggest I do or possibly return these. It sounds petty but there’s nothing more annoying than having to take your earpiece out and put it back in the case, then pull it back out, wait around for it to connect to your phone again, then go back into the app you were using to play content on and hit play again. JUST TO HAVE IT DO IT AGAIN IN FOUR MIN. Then it’ll go two hours with no problems. It’s not my phone as this is an iPhone 12 that is less than a year old. Everything is up-to-date software wise. I hate to complain about things and I almost NEVER leave reviews, so please know this is more of an annoyance than it probably sounds “on paper”. I hope Sony is willing to work with me and figure out a fix for this issue. The last thing I’ll add that I just remembered is often during phone calls the headset will just get confused and disconnect, leaving you in limbo while the phone still tries to recognize the earpiece, microphone, etc. and it is more than annoying to have to yell at your phone “hold on! Hold on! Let Me figure out what’s going on!” To the person on the phone as you are jamming the speaker button and listen to see if it’s on speaker, connected to the regular speaker for phone calls, and removing the earbuds while doing all this so you can talk on your phone as normal. Especially annoying while driving. The whole purpose is to use it “hands free” and now you’re fumbling with everything well still trying to carry on a conversation. Probably my favorite part of that whole experience is once you finally remove the earpieces and toss them in the passenger seat, click the button on the phone to make it go to the speaker that you hold up to your ear, and right as you finally get it to your ear the headset decides it’s going to magically reconnect itself and now you’ve got to either disconnect them or find the earbuds again.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They do the job I used to use £60 earbuds and these seemed like a good upgrade to what I previously owned. Noise cancellation is good, sound has just the right amount of bass providing I use the EQ and they have a really nice quality build. Only negatives is that they feel like they will fall out (but they don't for me) and the case they come with is large, but that isn't really much of a problem for me. I think they do a good job of what they are meant to do and I have no real major complaints with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall excellent but... Generally they really are fantastic. Noise cancelling is incredible. Sound quality is great. However... There are 2 issues and 1 request I would like to make to Sony 1: call quality. I don't know why but any background noise on calls makes it very difficult for the other person to hear. Sound quality on my side is fantastic but the microphone does have issues if there is any other background noise. It's workable, but not the best. 2: connection. When using them they are fine. But after a year or so, they started randomly connecting whilst in the charging case. I would be on a call or watching something and sound would cut out. I would have to disable Bluetooth because it would continuously try to connect to the headphones whilst in their case. Happened again to me today whilst watching Netflix. If they haven't been used in a while, it doesn't seem to happen. 3: the request. PLEASE make an ear hook version or attachment. I love using these headphones. Would love to run with them. Or use them at the gym. They are too expensive to risk and when I have tried, they do come loose with sweat and I cannot focus on my exercise because I have to press them back into place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t be fooled! Received as a birthday present, sound and fit good by far biggest disappointment is battery life. Did not last until end of a 1 hour 40 film, popped them back in case for a “second charge!” Boom, 20 mins later they are flat again! Not yet worked out how to preserve battery power but assume in doing so will jeopardise quality? These EarPods came with a high rating from “Which” magazine I have to admit I am disappointed with the product and will look at alternative producers in future- sorry it’s a 3/10 From me!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not great, not bad enough to return. Connections are unreliable and thus frustrating and annoying. Interference, drops in quality and disconnects when I am directly next to the Bluetooth device is unacceptable. Using high quality connection with a mobile device that has the app is where these headphones shine BUT you will severely reduce the battery life while using DSEE HX. Not sure if setting the connection type(stability or hq priority) carries over to devices that don't have the app installed? All in all the connection is mediocre at best and leaves a lot to be desired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality! I bought these headphones to use with my Sony Walkman which supports a wide range of bluetooth codec. Unlike my over the ears headphones which supports SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX HD, LDAC. These only connect to my Walkman device using the base codec SBC. They sound a little bit better when connected to an iPhone via AAC. Sony is missing out the point why people buy a walkman in this day and age. Come on Sony not add APTX, LDAC? Why can I not have at least AAC connection between the A50 series Walkman and these headphones? Great pair of headphones but Sony as a company needs to work on their echo system big time.

Also would like to be able to set a default noise cancelling mode (always start up in "ambient sound" mode) I frequently put the earbuds and out of the case at work and without using the left earbud I can't change the sound mode which defaults to noise cancelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Looking to buy a set of ear buds and after doing my usual research I went for these. Very happy with them. I had problems with them over the first week as the ambience sound/ noise cancelling keep switching annoyingly when I was out walking. I was ready to send them back but found a forum online which suggested turning off adaptive sound control and this did the job. I think Sony could have made this option clearer in their instructions. An unexpected benefit for me is that the black and gold colours exactly matched my Samsung phone! In summary, I’m pleased with my ear buds as I bought them for sound quality and for this I give 5*.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very disappointing I did lots of research into which wireless earbuds I was going to get. Having a Samsung Galaxy phone and tablet, it seemed like a no-brainer to get Samsung Galaxy earbuds, but these Sony ones were so well reviewed and were on sale at the time so I decided to get these instead. Firstly, the fit is awful. They are constantly falling out, despite trying multiple sizes of earbud being tried. 3 songs is the longest I've home before they start slipping out and I have to push and twist them back in. Secondly, they keep cutting out. Listening to a song, the earphones suddenly drop out for a second before the music carries on playing. One night it happened three times during one song, and kept happening at least once throughout others. Very frustrating and there wasn't a clear issue, it happens when I'm on my phone and when it's next to me unused. Positives are the incredible battery life and sound quality, which I expect from Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality but won't stay in ear First I want to start off with the good. I absolutely loved almost everything about these earbuds. I wanted so bad for them to work for me. The sound quality is the best I have ever heard through an earbud and I usually use Bose for my go to earbuds. These were by far superior to my Bose in almost every way (except for one crucial area). The noice cancellation wasn't a feature I was necessarily looking for since I planned on using these to run in but it was a nice feature to have in case I ever have to start traveling again. However, I tried out the noice cancellation and it by far exceeded my expectations for what an earbud could deliver. Once again I want to stress that I absolutely loved these earbuds and having to return them was really really difficult. However, they would not stay in my ear. I tried every tip they had included in the box. I even watched YouTube videos on how to get them to lock in your ear. Nothing worked. Whenever I would try to run in them they would fall out after only a few feet. I liked them so much though that I thought I could just use them for other than running or exercising. Nope I couldn't even keep them in my ear just walking around the house or even sitting relatively still. An easy fix for these would seem to have been to include an ear tip that had a hook on it like Bose does. I'm not sure if it would have taken away from the noice cancellation feature somehow since they are supposed to be inserted into your ear but for me that wasn't the main reason I bought them so it wouldn't have been a deal breaker. I just wanted them to fit. Real shame because I loved these earbuds but just beware if you have a hard time keeping earbuds in your ear that don't have some type of wing on them then I would avoid these. At least until Sony creates a tip with a wing on it. If they ever will (please Sony make a tip with a wing. I'd gladly reorder them if you would). I hope this helps in your buying decision.

Range anxiety, randomly will disconnect in one ear, case and material is cheap and chips and scratches very easily. Software for it is a joke and charging percentage isn't at all accurate, they're sony 360 surround is also a scam as it only works with 5 apps (I've never heard of any of them) and they require you to take photos of your ears, if my case wasn't already scratched up I'd return them for powerboats pros. Much better overall. I will give sound quality an 8/10 but it's hardly worth it with these issues

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If at first you don’t succeed... I already have the WH-1000XM4 headphones which are amazing. After researching for wireless ear buds I decided on the WF-1000MX3. First time I used them - hated and disappointed - the negative reviews buzzed in my head. However, I decided to read the instructions better and try different covers. What a difference- amazing. I still have difficulty with the right one- just won’t seem to fit well. All notes crisp, lovely middle tones and bass. Sometimes seems slow to switch to adaptive sound, and occasional loss of connection between both buds- minor issues. They highlight poor quality recordings. The case is larger than ideal, especially to put in a pocket, the size of buds is quite large, and they do protrude- means you can accidentally knock them out- wouldn’t feel happy running in them - that may just be the issue with the right ear fitting oddly though. Controlling them can be fiddly- it’s best to hold then action, and it’s takes getting used to the delay required on taps. It would be good to have choice on left for both voice assistant AND adaptive sound/noise cancelling rather than one or the other. Like everything- there are pluses and minuses, but get the fit right and adapt to them - you won’t regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Premium Was reluctant to spend near £200 for a set of earbuds,but so pleased I did.Sound for me was the most important factor and these blow any previous earbuds I've had away in that department.Comfortable and good design,my only slight reservation would be the size of the charging case,it's quite large,but overall it's a premium product for a premium price.Best set of earbuds I've had hands down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Headphones I had mine for over a year now, and the technology present in this device still blows me away. The noice cancelling feature is amazing, true to what they advertise, and the option of being able to freely tune the sound via the equalizer present in the Sony app is just great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixed bag but generally good I got these for Xmas and have used them since so not long but early impressions are: Good: looks, ease of connection to mobile; sound (spoken) crystal clear podcasts Yet to convince: comfort; just can't get them comfy for a long walk; sound (music) not the sparkling highs and penetrating lows I was expecting (and get from my over-ear headphones); batteries, am regularly asked to recharge after about 45-50 mins of podcast; noise suppression, not sure what I was expecting but whatever it was I didn't get it! There IS a difference but I still have to pause the dialogue when I walk under bridges with cars passing etc. Don't get me wrong, there IS an effect, it's just not what I was hoping for compared to my last set of (non noise cancelling) ear buds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The noise cancelling actually works! Having tried a competitors noise cancelling earbuds that just would not fit into my ears with any of the supplied gels - just kept sliding out, these WF-1000XM3 fit first time with no effort! The noise cancelling is far better than expected, perhaps not quite as good as 'proper' headphones that surround the ear, but an appreciable difference. A good sound with plenty of bass if that's what you like. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The expert reviews are spot on! Seriously impressed with these ear buds. Excellent sound quality, comfortable, secure fitting (for walking and moving about, I don't run!), rock solid Bluetooth connection, good noise cancelling (reduces external noise from irritating to unobtrusive background) really clever automatic features and the mics work well for phone calls. My son tried them and then bought a pair for himself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall good earbuds Received as Xmas present and have been reasonably happy with them. Sound quality is good and the equaliser in the app allows a more personalised sound. Prefered these to the AirPod Pro as the app allows you to control volume from the earbuds themselves, as you can do with over ear headphones. The noise cancelling is only reasonable as it requires you to push the buds in to seal properly which can be uncomfortable. I have WH-1000XM2 headphones which I rate the noise cancelling excellent so this spoils my experience of the earbuds in this respect. For general use I find them comfortable and they stay in quite well if you follow Sony's instructions of how to insert them. Would I buy them again if they upgrade sufficiently, yes. On pairing with devices, this is easy. Plus once paired to my Apple devices it's nearly as simple as AirPods. Would I recommend them to others, Yes. Sony at least partly listens to its customers and gives them more choice for listening to music. Apple seems to think they know better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some kind of Witchery!!! Well what can I say, how they produce the sound that they do, as I say is some kind of witchery!!! Just wow. Ok so a bit more context and to explain a little.... I am in my early 40s, not an amateur when it comes to AV equipment and I can tell you that songs I had previously thought had lost some of there sparkle and even “I’m sure there was another instrument playing in the background at one time” well I can say it’s not my ears! it has been the other headphones I have had. I don’t know if I can state brands so I won’t but let’s just say they have not been budget ones! and one very very recent pair because I fancied a change were endorsed by a rap star. I have come from on ear and over ear styles and took a chance on these, as the last in ear I had were wired and a good few years ago. So if you are on the fence then dont be, do not hesitate. well done Sony some kind of magic witchery!!! Sound sublime in every way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the worst purchases in my life The noice cancelling is almost non existent, they constantly fall or if my ears despite having tried all the different plugs. They are very uncomfortable and my ears hurt from long time use. The sound is mediocre. When I try to correct the earbuds(which is needs to do all the tillbe vevat they fit do badly) they often react by switching noice cancelling mode or trigger stop off the song. I bought these because I own the bigger sony wh-1000xm2 and they are fanatics but buying these I highly regret. Worst part is I'm not allowed to return the junk because they are in ear model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outfreakingstanding So I got these at the same time as some master dynamic h60's. Both units have their areas where they excell. That said the Sony xm1000's dominate in every category except style.. I don't use them to look cool so my $500 M&D sit on a shelf lookin pretty. These integrated flawlessly with both Android and APPLE OS providing the listener with great sound, decent noise canceling, a good fit, and all while retaining the voice control features. The sony app allows the user to fine tune sound, assign features, and will automatically improve your music apps playback quality. Having smaller deeper ears i was able to get these to properly fit with the wide assortment of adapters provided. As a reviewer I try to always bring up atleast one flaw or short coming. Although they did fit, the stem for the bud could be a couple mm longer to go a little deeper in the ear canal, and it breaks my heart to say I've lost one and unfortunately cannot pair them to a new phone.. my advice is to grab them up, slip them in and slip away into whatever place your mind will travel.+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sounding Headphones but with issues As the title says these are good sounding headphones and the noise cancelling is brilliant, however there are a number of issues I've had with mine. Firstly the connectivity, every time I connect the headphones to my phone they take an age to connect and sometimes I have to manually connect. Recently my battery dies after around 1 hour of use and lastly in my opinion the call quality is not great as they seem to pick up all the noise around .

However, despite using the smallest ear bud I am struggling to get them into my ear canal. I could do with an even smaller option! Its such a shame as a daren't wear them outdoors in case they fall onto the ground and get damaged or lost! So I have very mixed feelings about this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good sound quality After a 2 weeks using them, I have to say the sound quality is exactly what I was looking for, very cristal clear sound with options to customise through the EQ in the app. The comfort is the reason why I don't give 5 stars, I have tried wearing them with different ear pads but after an hour or so, I feel like I need a break. Also the wind cancelling feature on the app is not so easy to set with the touch of a button as you need to scroll the bar forth and back to find the right location. I've noticed too a miscommunication or sound cutting briefly when I have them connected to the TV. Microphone works perfectly for calls and assistants like Alexa or Google.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't connect I did a lot of research on true wireless earbuds, I currently have some B&O Beoplay E8's which are brilliant but are now starting to lose battery capacity. I decided on the WF-1000CMX after a lot of positive reviews. However when I tried to connect to them to my Samsung S9 I went out for a run and they kept disconnecting and reconnecting every 5 minutes or so. I connected them to 2 x different laptops and got the same result. I have returned for them to be exchanged so I can't really comment yet as they may have just been a faulty pair. But it is very annoying as they should have been tested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounds and features but ...... Spent many hours looking at reviews and you tubers opinions before picking my ear buds. Every box ticked sounds features , ease of use but ......I can’t get them to fit in my ears , they stay in for 10-15 minutes before I have to push them back in. So if I don’t move they are fine but as soon as I walk or move about the slowly move out. I’ve tried different size ear bud attachments but it doesn’t help. So providing they fit well in your ears then they are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most expensive garbage I've had these earbuds for going on a year, and hate them more and more as time goes on. The bluetooth connection is the weakest I've ever experienced - the sound and call audio is frequently garbled, bluetooth connectivity frequently drops for no reason regardless of distance, and then the worst part it even when the buds are safely nestled in their case, they will randomly still send out a connection signal so suddenly my phone or computer will reconnect to the buds out of nowhere. They are also prone to falling out of my ears. I've tried every plug that came in the package, and even the best fitting one slides out of my ear every 10 or so minutes. They absolutely cannot be used during exercise. The selective assigning of gestures is also awkward if you only have in one earbud - want to pause your music? Turn down the volume? Too bad, that feature is on the right earbud and you only have the left one in. For how expensive these earbuds are, I thought they would be absolutely spectacular and second-to-none, but they are worse than any $20 Taotronics knockoff I've ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound good but not as good as I would ideally like Tried all the supplies eat buds. For me personally they are either a little uncomfortable or don’t seal well enough to provide the best bass. Despite endlessly adjusting the EQ settings manually they are too bassey and lack the sharp thwack of high end audio. My WH1000MX3’s suffer similarly. I’m still happy with them but for me could be quite a bit better. I bought these mainly for use with my phone when out about and for phone calls/video calls rather than use my larger WH’s. They don’t feel that secure in my ears but equally they’ve not slipped so seem ok, but I’ve not tried running with them. No drop outs like I had with the 2nd gen models which went back.

If the foam isolator pieces were solid like all the rest out there, it would be a way better fit. They don't want to stay in my ears and I have to keep adjusting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality It took quite a bit of trial and error with the different sizes and types of earbud. I did eventually find a combination of earbud and orientation where they don't fall out. It also took some time with the equalizer as the preset options didn't sound that great. In the end I was able to get deeper bass than I've heard in headphones before while at the same time get clear mid and treble. One slight annoyance is the ambient sound level setting does not seem to stay set. I have it set to wind noise reduction as I use them on an exercise machine with a fan and have to enable that setting each time.

Been using everyday, changing the plastic little things to see if they will eventually fit better. Still - I am disappointed. Overall they fall out way too easy & to switch music to phone call, not so smooth & bcoz it gets falling ur ear so easily you have to readjust the position in ur ear all the time and the sensor keeps interrupting the phone calls and cutting off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product ,,,,,,, but could easily be better Initially disappointed with these headphones as I struggled to get them to fit comfortably in my ear canals. I should have listened more to the personal reviews rather than the published technical reviews. The main pros are that the earphones are easy to set up and the audio sound is really good. The cons are that a good fit was difficult to achieve and that the noise cancelling is poor (I can hear my wife breathing next to me in bed never mind snoring!) and an annoyance is that the length of the flex for the charging cable is ridiculously short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living for the wireless feature! I honestly love them. I find them very comfortable and I can even work out with them (they just do not move, and never experienced them falling out of my ears). However, they do not fit smaller ears. For example, my boyfriend truly cannot make them fit, they are too big for his ears (even with the smallest earbuds size). Also, I feel like I have "average ears" and the only size that fits me is the xs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound... Horrible chimes Got a pair for Christmas and I have overall really enjoyed them. There is one feature that needs to be addressed, as it could get me to stop using these earbuds. There is a chime that keeps going off when I wear them. It seems like the chime goes off when it changes from ambient sounds to noise canceling. There should be a way to turn off that chime as when I was out for a one-hour walk, I had the chime going off in my ear about every 3-5 mins, which really diminishes your listening experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, rubbish battery. I find Sony products generally good but these headphones are rubbish. The battery runs flat within 2 hours. I get nothing like the 6-8 hours advertised. I have been told that using the graphic equaliser drains the battery, as does noise cancellation, but sub 2 hours is ridiculous! In my opinion, they are not fit for purpose. I also find it frustrating trying to get hold of Sony to speak of the issue. I don't want to type into a Website or read through copious pages of user comments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but flawed I got these headphones to use while running and unfortunately for that they are not good enough. While listening to music in a quiet room the sound quality is excellent but the fit of the earbuds isn't great and fall out of my ear very easily. I have tried various different combinations of buds to get a better fit but I had to order different buds online in a hope of a better fit. Also while running I can hear my feet hitting the ground which makes the whole experience very irritating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Excellent! I read a few reviews about these before buying and there were lots that said they don't live up to the hype... Lord knows what those people were talking about!? Perhaps they didn't get a good fit but trying a few of the different earpieces definitely helped me get a good seal in the ear, as well as making them a bit more comfortable. They do need to be pushed in quite deep and sort of "screwed" in to get it right. But once there, they sound amazing! Pair these with a Tidal HIFI subscription and you're in for a treat. Try out the Dolby Atmos stuff they have... It feels like the music is coming from inside your head. The bass is very good and the app allows you to crank it up if you're into that. My only critism / negative would be comfort, being a friction fit, prolonged use does cause some discomfort. However, I have listened to a few albums back to back in these and by the time they need to be charged, I'm just about done with wanting to wear them. I'm in no way disappointed with these and I doubt you will be either - just persist with fitment if they aren't perfect first time.. I've already recommended to a few friends

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of earbuds but can still be better. I've had this for a few weeks and I am pleased to say that I like this product. Although this is a solid product, there are things which sony has done well and things they could have improved upon which I will list below. Pros: - Good sound quality (not great). - Solid build & design. - Good ANC performance. - OK ambient sound. Cons: - While the sound quality is good, the bass is not as heavy (the Apollo Tronsmart Bold has heavier bass). - Lack of ear fins to better support the earbud being in the ear which over time, does lead to ear fatigue. - Ambient sound is not as loud as you'd expect even with the level dialled up as loud as it can get. - Earbuds do not remember the last mode it was left in (always turns on in ANC mode). - No support for setting what each earbud controls can do e.g. setting single taps to do one thing, which double taps does another. - No wireless charging. - Case is on the bulky side (perhaps due to the design of the earbuds). All in all, this is a good quality pair of earbuds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Annoying audio descriptions + cuts off randomly Sadly, we only tried these a few weeks after getting them. I say sadly, because we would like to return them and no longer can. Why are they massively disappointing for a brand like Sony? 1. The noise cancellation is a joke, compared to Apple's Earpods, which truly cancel out noise. 2. They cut off randomly for a split second, making your listening experience suffer. 3. Every single time you pop them in, they tell you how the battery is doing and if they are connected. I am still hoping to learn how to turn off the foolish audio descriptions, but don't know how.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from King of wireless headphones After watching reviews on YouTube I decided to take a chance and purchase these and I was not disappointed. Great great great sound quality (especially when using high fidelity music streaming apps like Tidal) and noise cancelling technology. Battery life is as described and charges fast. The companion phone app has got better with time and has all the features and customisable settings you'll need and its all easy to use. The app is missing the feature to find the headphones when they are missing, I was hoping to see this added over the last 13 months I've owned these but sadly not. The fit and design of these are good, you get regular silicon buds and foam buds too. Although if you are to shake your head, heavily jog or lean to one side they can loosen very quickly and fall out. A wing tip design for the next version would be great addition. The microphones for calls isn't the best, people always hear a lot of background noise so I tend to remove the ear buds and use my actual phone, hopefully that can be improved in the next version also. Overall they are good, with the changes I mention they would be flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, bit fiddly! I did a lot of research into getting a good set of earbuds. I needed something to use for both music & phone. I’d recommend reading the manual beforehand as they can be a little tricky to setup. PROS: great sound, design & fit in the ear, choice of different buds, a sturdy build quality of both buds & charging case. lots of functionality for configuring the earbuds, which is great. CONS: not a lot to moan about, other than adaptive sound, which kicks in when moving eg walking, sitting, driving and beeps in your ear, goes silent then sound. I’ve personally found that the location of your phone (iPhone XR 64gb) can affect the adaptive sound, causing beeps and no sound momentarily which is annoying. I’ve also found that sometimes answering the phone is a pain, based on how you’ve configured the ear pieces. Otherwise, based on sound, quality of design and fit, I’d recommend them to anyone, they have a seriously amazing sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing earbuds crippled by management app I purchased these headphones for my daily use commuting to work and while working. Good noise cancellation and amazing sound. However, the Sony headphones app is really underdeveloped, clogged and missing some features IMHO. Battery is generally good as long as the sound quality is not changed to the highest settings where getting anything over 1.5 hour is a miracle. Don't let this put you away from buying them though. I'm glad I did it because they are truly amazing headphones. The clarity of the sound on all frequencies is really amazing and in some songs mind blowing. The 360 audio is just a gimmick in my opinion, as it doesn't work with all streaming apps (just deezer and Tidal), and it's really nice overall, but as I said: still just a gimmick. I use them as monitors while making some music and hardly miss my overhead ones. For audiophiles please note: these do not use aptX codec but AAC one. Overall: great headphones which I highly recommend to anyone who likes good quality sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bass and noice cancelling however... I love these the noise cancelling is amazing hardly notice the ANC has very little buzz, battery life is great the sound from them is great bass is amazing for the size of them, however if you have noise cancelling on you can not make calls as they also cancel the noise of your voice and people can not hear you, you can hear it cutting your voice out if you move or pick up a packet of crisps highly distracting and not great for the person you are talking to, I’m hoping they will bring a firmware update for this problem. They fit hreat you forget they are there even if you wear a woolly hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - One niche problem I really enjoy these. I bought them because I can use them at work. I thought I would be able to use one at a time while charging the other, as none of them are slaves. However, after using the left one for a while, I tried to put it in the case, while using the right one. To my frustration, it turned both off. After some research I found out, that you have to change the one you are using to use Google Assistant. Meaning you have to open the app on your phone, and go to settings, and change the entire setup (about 30 sec). Kind of annoying, when you want to use one at a time. It also means that you can't pause or skip songs and so on, when using one of them. I am still giving the product 5 stars, as I thought the problem is niche to the users, who will only be using one at a time, but I thought it was worth mentioning. I hope we will get an update that fixes the problem. The only reason why I haven't returned the headphones, is that the charge fast enough, that I can get through a day of work without ever using the right headphone, as I put them in their case, whenever I'm not using them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product It's been two years since I've had this product and it just gets better. Some flaws which I believe may be exclusive to my device do exist. I agree that the design can be a bit jarring but after a while you forget about it and how snazzy they are makes them look good in my opinion. If you are looking for good sound quality these are the way to go. The noise cancellation was initially amazing and have over the years become less competitive when compared to other earbuds. You could probably find other earphones with better noise cancellation but the sound stage presented by the Sonys is just exceptional. Would recommend. Battery life was 6 - 7 hours at the beginning but now I range between 4-5 hours on a single charge which still isn't bad. I have experienced some problems such as the Sonys connecting to different devices (if you regularly switch between devices and like to use one earphone at a time this could be a problem. Sometimes the Sonys wouldn't be able to identify that they were in the case and continue to play music from inside the case. However, I believe that Sony will get back to me on these issues. I will edit this review once they have got back to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good, much better than I thought Since we aren't allowed wired headphones on our phones anymore!? I got these and they are very good. I'd bought a couple of others cheap ones cos over £200 for earphones was too much but they were rubbish. These Sony's had great reviews and Sony reduced to £150 and I had a voucher so got them. The sound quality is excellent, the bat life excellent, build quality and connection excellent. They are also intuitive and the app is just brilliant knowing if your moving or sitting and what it does for sounds around you like announcements I use PowerAmp which is feature rich and these ear phones sound great Bought some Comply tips which I like, they fit in the case and make a secure fit in ear. Got a Spigen case so it's not bashed up in my work bag and it allows the case to stand upright.... Sony XM3's highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable wearing and perfect sound What I love them for - great sound, comfortable wearing, good noise cancellation and transparent mode, sound settings in the application and appearance (they are very beautiful) Disadvantages - you cannot configure pressing for control separately (there are modes - music control, noise reduction control. You can not put 1 press play, 2 press transparent mode, long press to receive a call), in transparency mode, ambient sounds sound like a barrel, my headphones keep the battery 1.5 hours at medium volume, no noise reduction and transparent mode. Sometimes the headphones stop turning on and pause (you need to press on the phone and then everything works as it should)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not live up to the hype Headphones are a tricky thing, the quality depends on so many factors. For me these headphones just do not measure up to all of the really positive reviews. The sound quality is certainly very good, but not the best for my ear. Noise cancelling is very ineffective for me, and if it works at all it is only when listening to audio - so cannot be used to isolate from external noise without some form of audio playing. Battery life is not close to that advertised and getting worse as I use them. Sad, I really wanted to like them, and I do use them, but I prefer others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise canceling too weak! The sound itself is really amazing good even in bass segments. The precision of the signal in relation with the very tiny electronic is approaching the performance of a big and heavy headset. The weak point in my opinion is the poor noise reduction, which is from far not the best. I had tried all plugs, but never achieved towards my satisfaction. Maybe plugs made of a special foam could help.... I think the software could be improved, I hope that the next update will bring a solution for this...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and really comfortable fit. I use a Bluetooth headset all the time for taking calls, so I was looking for a replacement when my previous one gave up the ghost. Initially I was a little hesitant due to the price, but after the very positive reviews in the press, decided to go with these. What a great decision! When they arrived, it was incredibly easy to set up, and after downloading the app, had the ability to wear these and listen to the ambient sounds in the room.. The sound quality is excellent - I've listened to many genres of music from Opera to Rock, and these perform fantastically - best sound I've ever obtained, especially from something so small.. The battery life is superb, especially when using them for telephone calls, and the capacity of the charging case ensures that I have a constant source of power to hand. These are a feature packed item, and I must admit that I am still to try everything out and find what is most useful to me. All in all - these are a great item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! A must buy for music lover & gaming I use mine when I'm having a call on IT Support, I was surprised when I used it inside a small room with loud fans of big servers/ups and I didn't have trouble when I'm on a call. They can hear me loud and clear as tested. This is the first noise cancelling truly wireless headset that I ever had so I was amused on when noise cancelling was enabled everything you hear is just pure music even on the loudest areas. Also it helps a lot when I'm on a call the voice of the caller is so clear like the person I'm talking to is on front of me. I also use this for mobile gaming like Call of Duty Mobile and the sound is astounding I love it and it's a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The UX is incredibly frustrating I have now had these headphones for 4 month and I am considering cutting my loss and buying new ones. While the playback sound quality is fair and the NC good, the user experience is so incredibly frustrating! - The earbuds: They stick fairly far out of the ear, which makes them both non-discrete and give them a tendency to get caught by all sorts of things: Hair when brushing back, Hoodies, glasses, which makes them slip out. Furthermore hoodies and hair brushes against the microphones, giving annoying artefacts in the noise cancelation when walking. The natural response when they start slipping is to push them back in with a finger. But this will activate the NC/assistant, pausing your listening or changing the audio mode - Argh! - Audio modes: When cycling through audio modes, you will have to sit through every mode name being read out loud, which makes it a tedious and annoying process to select mode. Especially, if you changed by mistake an just want to get back and continue listening. - Bluetooth connection: I use the buds together with an iPhone 12. Connection time can vary a lot, and can take anywhere from 1-20s. Not a lot? It is when a call is coming in. Range is pretty impressive though, 6-10m through reinforced concrete. On the other hand, today one of the earbuds dropped out in the middle of a conversation, with the phone right on front of me. Apparently the other bud got spooked and would not allow to continue the conversation and muted the microphone. - Casing: Overall good quality. But the earbuds are mirrors of each other, which means that the earbuds should be placed in the correct slot in the casing. However they are very similar, so Murphy dictates that it will go wrong 90% of the time and you will end up fiddling. There is a small L/R symbol, but they are very small and not apparent from the natural insertion angle, so you are on your own. - Charging state of the earbuds and case is show in the app and updated when the earbuds a taken out. That means that if you want to know the charging state, you will have to open the case, take out an earbud, wait for it to connect to the phone, open the app, go to the charging page. - Why not just show it on the case with an LED status - it is right there?? - Headset quality: Many of my call recipients have complained about audio breaking up and ambient sounds being amplified. The earbuds does not go to ambient sound mode automatically when in a call, which makes it difficult to hear yourself until you change mode. I usually go with taking one earbud out and live with the fear of inadvertently hitting thee touch button and hanging up my call. -Pause listening: The buds will pause your listening when taken out of the ear - smart. But where would you usually temporarily put them e.g. when at the shop register? - in the pocket - and they will continue playback. If placed on the table, they will keep blinking blue even though playback is paused and they stay connected. Why? Shhhss, be silent, I will put you in the case later. - The app is fairly well-made, but is just another UX speed bump. It does not serve as a natural workflow to open up a headphone app and fiddle. It should just work seamlessly and intuitively. Maybe all these things does not seam like a lot by themselves, but they make the product a hassle, but we have plenty other hassles in our lives, does not need another one.

I was sceptical initially prior to purchase but nothing ventured, nothing lost! After tweaking my PC settings (with ease) I am delighted to confirm these work a treat. They are comfortable too and I wear them for hours at a time. I cannot yet comment on the battery life as I have only just started using them but compared to other brands available, these have one of the longest which is ideal for me! The sound quality is just as good as my wired Sony earbuds (3mm jack) if not better because of the modifications you can tweak so overall I am very very pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good earphones apart from the bugs Baught these earphones due to all the good reviews I saw they're not bad but they do have some small bugs which can get annoying. Sound quality and battery life are great but there are some connection issues can only connect one device at a time and switching between devices isn't always so smooth as sometimes the audio won't work there is also a slight delay in audio which can become noticeable when playing games. Noise cancelling and ambient sound also aren't great on windy days but they work fine indoors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great audio quality for music Not the most stylish of earphones but the build quality is excellent. Music is very good on them but, unfortunately, the call quality is below par as most people have difficulty hearing me which is annoying as I was hoping to use these whilst working from home and have 2 hands free for typing/writing. The call quality is poor even when the earphones are fully charged and close to my phone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from poor overall performance They do not fit my ears properly (keep falling out every 20 min), which is quite unacceptable issue considering the purpose of the product. I did enjoy noise cancelling aspect of the headset, but the fact that recalibration occurs every 5 seconds, did not impress me. This caused disruptions during conversations and while listening to the music, watching movies, etc. indoors and outdoors. Sound quality on the other hand is amazing, superb I must say, but if they keep falling off, I can’t enjoy that amazingness ? I did give a fare go to the headset; but I finally came to a conclusion that it is not a top-quality product as it was advertised. The technology is there, but it is not refined enough for me to truly enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Bought in early December but left in packaging until February. My mistake as these buds are very comfortable and easy to use and give a great sound. I use the ambient feature when walking for safety. Noise cancelling good. Would have liked HD sound but got the money no complaints. Bought a second pair for my son's birthday present.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great features I've been using these headphones for about two weeks. Couldn't be happier about the quality of the sound, the connectivity. Also, the features are very cool - when you take out one of the earpiece, it automatically pauses the song you are listening. The two earpieces controls can be adjusted by your liking - for example, on the right side you can have the pause / play controls, and on the left side, you can have the volume control, or the environment / noise cancelling controls - or viceversa. The only "problem" that i have is with the headphones app from sony, they have a bunch of things they have to improve. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase I've made. Great job, Sony

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound..but tricky to fit I bought these 5 months ago and from day one the sound has been fantastic easy to connect via app and with laptop. The only downside has been getting a good fit has been difficult to say the lease one or both earpiece has exploded from my ears. I would not be confident using them when out for a walk unless wearing a beanie hat to secure them. I definitely would wear them for run

Great sound quality, very pretty, battery life is excellent so far but as they are quite new this is not a surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best all round earphones I have had these earphones for 6 months and have also got a pair of galaxy buds pro. The sound quality of the sonys are far better than the galaxy bud pros, likewise the noise cancelling is much better than than the galaxy's. However the battery seldom lasts more than 2 hours and the case is really bulky. Wish the case was smaller and there was wireless charging. This is not sony related as it is a ms windows issue. No Bluetooth earphones can be used with windows for teams or zoom or Skype etc. The problem is windows does not allow Bluetooth to stream HD sound and microphone at the same time. I cannot even get windows to stream the sound at 8bit and use the microphone. It simply cannot do it. The earphones work great with windows to listen to music and YouTube etc but don't waste your time trying to get the microphone to work. Better off using teams and zoom etc on your android phone where they work flawlessly.

The connection to my phone or tablet was really easy and the strength of the connection is excellent as I wandered all over my house on a call while leaving my phone in the lounge. Sound quality is rich and the noise cancelling worked well. The buds fitted my ear straight out of the box but there are several different sized adapters that come with this product. and the charging case has a nice tactile finish. Overall very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sounding in-ear headphones I have ever had! I bought them early a month ago and have been using them every single day. For starters, the battery life is absolutely spot on! It easily lasts several days without me having to recharge the case. The build quality is to notch. They are quite light and and seem fairly durable. The case feels like it can withstand some abuse. The sound quality. Oh my goodness... it is phenomenal! I can hear every instrument individually and can really crank the Bass up to a level that even my Desktop Speakers start cracking at. Very impressed. I have been using the Sony MDREX650AP for over 5 years before buying these and can confidently say they are a fantastic upgrade in terms of sound quality. From all the in-ear headphones I have used, these are unmatched in terms of sound. The Bluetooth connectivity is also rather superb. When I was first got them, I set them up to Prioritise Sound Quality over Connectivity within the Sony Headphone app. The sound transmission is pretty much uninterrupted even though I am using a 1st Gen iPhone SE with Bluetooth 4.2 Phone calls also sound pretty great with these. However, it is very important that whatever service I was using supports the high quality Voice transmission these Headphones are capable of. If the service does not, mine and the recipients voice quality will be as good as a phone call in the early 2000's The noise cancellation is good enough to quiet down the Kettle, Washing machine and Microwave oven all working at the same time while I'm using them in the kitchen. However, the noise cancelling do not mute them completely. Unfortunately they are not the most comfortable especially after using them from more than 4 hours a day. My ears seem to get tired from the stretching caused by the large tips. I found that to get a proper seal I have to use the largest Foam tips provided whereas with my previous wired headphones my perfect fit were the smallest silicone. All is well when using my iPhone but connecting them to my MacBook is not the best experience. Because I only have Bluetooth 4.0 on my Mac, the connection is not very stable but thankfully uninterrupted for the most time. The most annoying thing is when I switch from MacOS to Windows through Bootcamp. Although I have the headphones paired on both operating systems, they only work properly with one operating system at a time. Which means every time I want to use them on, say, Windows instead of MacOS, where I was using them just a moment ago, I have to unpair them and then pair them again in Windows. I also have to repeat the process going from Windows back into MacOS. Hopefully this will be fixed in some future firmware update. Overall, these are fantastic and I can easily recommend them. If or when they Brake, I will be getting these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best True Wireless Earphones I struggle to find any in-ear 'phones that fit comfortably but the WF-1000XM3s are extremely comfortable even for long listening periods. Sound quality is excellent, I listen to many music genres including classical, heavy rock, pop and dance, and these earphones sound wonderful with pretty much everything. My only (small) criticism is that I wish they would go louder but that may be my poor ears! The noise cancelling is pretty good too, with the Sony Headphones Connect app (on Apple or Android) it is easy to tailor the ANC and the earphones' sound to fit your needs at any time. In personally not particularly keen on the app's ability to alter the ANC automatically depending on remembered locations - I prefer to set it myself. Overall these are amazing earphones with top comfort and amazing sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! At first when I put it on, it felt like it will fall out of the ears as majority of the ear buds sits away from the ear. But I’ve been on bike rides on rough surfaces and it hasn’t fallen out yet. Sound quality is by far the best I’ve ever come across. I love the fact that it has 22 different sound modes and it automatically adjusts to your surroundings. The case is slightly in the big side, but the plus side to that is that you never run out of battery!

Obvious build or design issue with them. They will not pair with my Lenovo laptop so have to use son’s AirPods, which pair no issue. Overall the good sound quality and noise cancelling capability is out weighed by build and connectivity problems. I have bought AirPods and when the Sony come back repaired/replaced I am selling them.

I knew they probably wouldn’t sound as good or be as effective with the noise cancellation but they are miles apart! They sound tinny and weak and I can hear no difference whatsoever noice cancelling on or off. It’s a shame as I really wanted to like these as they are a lot handier to carry around in your pocket but to me they sound no better than a cheap pair that you get supplied with your phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound quality - a little heavy to wear I asked for these for Christmas based upon reviews and was pleased with the sound quality, particularly the microphone which made it easier for my mum, who is hard of hearing, to understand me. I hadn't had this type of earphone before and they were a bit heavier than I'd expected. Probably due to the shape of my ears, I couldn't keep them secure unless I kept my head fairly upright, so I could carry on with fairly sedate activities whilst wearing them, but bending down or tilting my head risked dislodging them. I suspect that others might not have this problem. For the first few weeks they would occasionally cut out mid-conversation, but they haven't done this for a month now, so maybe that's been cured by an update.

The detail in the sound is great and they are very easy to use. They are not great for running but no such claims are made by Sony. Noise cancelling and ambient sound modes are rubbish outside with even a light breeze. Inside is a different story. Great on phone calls too (rubbish outside). Controls are configurable but the default settings are best. I downloaded the app but don't bother with it anymore. However you need this for 360 mode which I tried on a free trial of Tidal Hifi. Absolutely stunning. Great for Audiophiles, really impressive sound. Listen outside on a walk for sure but phone calls need to be indoors out of the wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do “pro” reviewers just get paid off? Ambient or noise canceling features always revert. Constant disconnection for phone calls. Ringer volume keeps adjusting? The list goes on. Software wise these are shoddy as all hell. Hardware wise they’re great. I can’t count on one hand how problematic these headphones are at handling phone calls. It’s absolutely infuriating. Listening to music is fine. Listening to podcasts is fine. If at any point you receive a phone call and decide to answer it - may these headphones have mercy on you. These appear to connect through the Sony app which you have to download and I would speculate that is the root cause of why these headphones operate so poorly. Before these I had Bose Soundsport frees which met an unfortunate demise. They had their own quirky problems, but nothing I would consider “rage inducing”. Air flow to the earbud causes interference in the sound canceling. Turning off noise canceling, putting the headphones away, pulling them back out turns on noise canceling again. Constant noise canceling makes headphone life somewhat abysmal, but the benefit of being able to use either headphone makes up for it. The assortment of pieces for your ear canal size is plentiful and I was able to find a size that fits well. These headphones have yet to fall out at work. All in all these headphones are built great. They sound great. The software you need to use them is so utterly atrocious that it becomes a deal breaker for me. I’ll continue to suffer until they're dead. I just wish Sony would fix their issues with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fab ear pods Bought these for my wife for Christmas but she does not like the in ear feel, so have swapped for my air pods. I love them the noise cancelling is brill and they pause when you remove one to talk, I haven't worked out all the tapping of each for the features but I will get used to that. The case and build quality is as you'd expect from Sony. Battery life is excellent I have only charged them once so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Promised 6 hours battery, getting 1 I bought the headphones 2 weeks ago, I thought they were great, however after 1 long walk, they ran out after 1 hour. All the online support has indicated even with all features turned on it is better then 3, and no one seems to have a forum on bad battery life. I have a replacement on the way lets hope the 2nd pair are better then the first

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worest Blutoth connection, Worest Microphone After paying this massive price for this product with high expectations from a well-known brand like SONY, I am very disappointed, and i need a refund or replacment. To be fair I will mention what is good and what is bad. Good things: 1- Sound quality 2- Customization in application and controls 3- Build quality The worst things: 1- Microphone quality for calls, a lot of people told me that they could not hear me well. 2- The sound quality of the calls, sometimes I hear like an robotic noisy voice from the caller. 3- very bad connection quality. 4- slow connection speed, it takes about 5 to 15 seconds to get ready for use. 5- Unstable connection specialy when useing with laptop. 6- The lag between left and right is not same. 7- The price is very high considering these problems. 8- The app is good at customization, but it is very bad in terms of connection quality, sometimes it disconnect by self when oppenong other apps. SONY, you have to fix this issue or you will be out of the competition of Headphones market. i assure you no one will purchase your next WF1000XM4 unless you pointed the problems of WF1000XM3 and solved it. best regards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, but... I bought these earlier in February, took a while to get them to stay in my ears (I have small ears) and even now I have to be careful they don't fall out. I wear them while cooking and doing housework, so I'm concerned that they will fall into something! Also, not sure how the battery life is supposed to be 8 hours? I used them yesterday for 2 hours from fully charged and they reported only 20% battery left. I don't generally use noise cancelling. However, the sound is brilliant! The noise cancelling is good too, but I'm not sure how they'll be cope next time I travel on a plane. I love the case they come with, very tactile and neat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointing Sound is ok, controls are fiddly not intuitive. The most disappointing thing is the fit in the ear - not that secure and I’ve tried all of the fittings, plus they are uncomfortable to wear for more than 5 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mot quite right Purchased after reading so many positive reviews including those from review sites and magazines. Positive is they look good and I would think if they fitted well they would also sound great. But, there's the problem. I have tried the different buds provided but just can't seem to get a good fit that feels secure without being painful so they feel lose and the sound a bit top ended, when I press them in a bit the sound is fantastic but then they slip loose and sound is not as good. Bad point is the app that is supposedly going to set them up for your ears. What a waste if time and effort that was, it just would seem to to get a correct setting and kept giving an error...must have tried about 20 times before finally getting something that maybe worked. So..I am a bit disappointed with these myself and will go back to using my Bose QC35 over ear headphones which for me sound so much better. I will donate these to one of the family who may perhaps have better results. Shame as I was hoping these would work for me. I have used in ear before without problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, clever features I had a set given to me when I bought my Xperia 5 II as part of a bundle. I've used them many many times and the sound is great. They come loose in the ears after a little bit through natural vibration from walking/running/cycling. One feature I wish it would have is some sort of tracker or feature where it would be easier to find the charging box when it gets lost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bitter purchase with low qualiry From where to start .. the case and earbuds design and build give the impression that could provide and step up sound quality as well, BUT unfortunate that is not the case. Here are some of the issues that I faces while using this product for the past 3 months: 1. Sound quality is horrible. When listening to music while working on Sony 13" fold laptop, the original sound quality is lowered and you cant even compare it to 32 bit MP3 format. 2. Frequent disconnects. from laptop or phone while using Spotify or YouTube. You would have to switch off and on the case in order to re-pair the earpods. 3. Battery life. Even with using 10-30% of the volume, battery lasts only 120 min which is unacceptable. For such price and taking into consideration above issues, I would recommend some other competitor for Sony has fallen low on quality and development of this product. Pity..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointing experience I bought these headphones at the end of Jan 21 and they broke within 2 months. I contacted Sony who advised that they would need to be repaired. I've now been without them for nearly 2 weeks, despite the estimated repair time of 1 week. When a nearly new product breaks, why not replace it? I wouldn't normally spend a lot on headphones but decided I wanted a good quality set which would last. I spent time reviewing many products before choosing these. So you can imagine how disappointed I feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase I brought this product as I needed a replacement for the Bose original sleep buds. These are very different but I like the fact they can be used as real ear buds and not just sleep ones. Sound and fit are amazing and I believe better than most in the market. Not suitable for sleep if you lie on your side however I have slept with just one in and it was comfortable and worked. Sometimes I find the connection isn’t the best with Apple products you can get lags and they do struggle to connect with my work laptop however that is an old dell cheapy so few it’s more to do with the laptop and not the ear buds. The charge is amazing I use them often; working out, work calls, gaming, sleeping and walking or round the house. The case hardly ever needs charging up. Very happy with the product works just how I expected. They have fallen out once or twice but no real issues :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some good stuff, but... I bought these because I wanted better connection than the headphones I had, and read some good reviews. Compared to my old ones, they're very simple to operate, the pairing was a breeze, and the connection so far is rock solid. The sound is good, but not astonishing, but the fit isn't very positive, which seems to contribute to more ambient leakage than I expected, so the difference between the ambient off and noise cancelling settings is undetectable to me. The battery life is less than the old Creative Air Pods too, but I don't foresee wanting to use them for more than 5 hours at a time, so that's academic. Overall I'm happy with them, but I would've preferred a more positive fit which I suspect would've made a big difference to an already good sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good noise cancelling earbuds I haven’t used these earbuds much yet but first impressions are that they are good quality and great noise cancelling. I need to get used wearing them, my initial reaction was that my balance was affected but that is because the noise cancelling is so good. Sometimes the fit is great and they feel secure but other times I have trouble fixing them securely which I don’t understand. I have fitted the smallest size tip provided so perhaps a smaller one might be a good idea. Sound quality is excellent and the earbuds are small and look neat. Very easy to set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honest review after 1 year of ownership I initially had the Jabra Elite 65t which I used for well over 6 months effortlessly, after an unfortunate event of me driving over the charging case, I thought rather than buying a replacement case I'd invest in some new earbuds ( I also found out about ANC round the time I already bought the jabra headphone) so after some reasearch I decided to go with these WF-1000XM3's at first the things that definitely stood out was the sound quality and the ANC which in my opinion are the only positive things I can also say about the product, the FIT is very poor and not designed for use when exercising or doing any kind of activity that requires you to move alot, they easily fall out of your ears regardless of what size buds you attach to them ( they do come with various sizes of buds so you could use one that suits your ears best). I get OK battery life out of them but I will admit I do use ANC 99% of the time so I can look over it + they do charge extremely quick (when the case is fully charged). I found over time the case sometimes does not register the buds being placed in them and causing the buds to stay on, connected to my phone and drains the battery while actually being in the case. But now the issue I experience mainly is the fact now I just dont get any sound alot of the times, the headphones are connected because all the sound of my phone directs it to the buds and tells me it's connected but the actual sound doesn't play out from the buds. I ended up buying a new case for the Jabra elite 65t as the buds themselves were in tact, and I can honestly say other than them not having ANC they beat the sony's in every single form and way, not to forget they actually stay in my ears and are nearly a 100 pounds cheaper. This is an honest review and I own a few sony products including a sound bar which I'm very content with, it's not Sony being a poor company, they just produced a poorly designed product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could these be the best ear buds ever? I bought these ear buds around 2 weeks ago after reading some raving reviews and hearing positive feedback from a friend, and I have not regretted the decision for a second. Straight from the box, it was so easy to use/set up, I was up and running in minutes. They’re sleek, and with varying ear bud size options available in the box, I’ve found a snug fit. I’ve used them on walks and whilst washing the car, and have had no issues with these falling out my ears. The sound quality is superb, and I think I’d be hard pressed to find something better. The battery life is another selling point, with the ear buds holding charge for hours and the equally sleek charging case having battery to keep the ear buds topped up for several charge cycles. The accompanying app is easy to use, and great for maintaining updates to the ear buds.

The only issue I have is that they aren't super comfortable for long sessions, like more than a couple of hours and my ears get a little tired. Also the fit is hard to get right. I guess my ears aren't the same size. The right bud fits well, the left always seems a little loose. Just nitpicking there. Overall I love these

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, not great Been through quite a few high-end ear buds lately. I'm only satisfied with these. The touch controls are not sensitive enough - you have to practically push the unit into your ear to control it. Bose (QC) & Sennheiser have better controls in sensitivity (although w/Bose you end up hanging up on people). This is probably my biggest complaint and why they lose out to other ear pods. Noise cancellation is better than Sennheiser (Momentum True Wireless 2) but Bose and Apple are considerably better than Sony's WF-1000XM3. Sound quality is excellent - and the app (on mobile only!) allows for fine tuning to your preferences. I'd say these sound better than the Sennheiser and comparable to Bose's QC The silicon ear flanges just barely fit properly - I believe the Air Pods oblong design is the best in this department followed by the Bose QC. I tried 3rd party flanges and it wasn't any better at noise cancellation or getting a good fit. The buds are a bit of a pain to get out of the charging case, which, in my opinion really should be Qi charging capable. The included USB cable is laughably short - pretty useless (same with Sennheiser MTW2). The case itself is also larger than it should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, poor fit. I purchased these due to 5 star what hifi review. They sound great but the fit not what I expected. The body of the earpiece sits outside the ear and is heavy so it feels like its going to fall out even though its secure. I find the buttons or touch pads not easy to use as there is no positive location to the finger touch so you go to adjust the earpiece and accidentally touch the sensor and something else happens. Overall the user interface isn't as intuitive as expected. The app makes things easy to change with the number of taps or touches per side to do things. The alexa part works well for handsfree calling. I was disappointed in the battery life of the earpieces with 3 hours listening time on a full charge. So I had to recharge them as I walked. Again not what I expected but I expect I had the settings wrong... the case battery didn't show up in the app until I managed to do the update which caused problems with connecting to the phone again. I was on my way out the door to return them when all of a sudden they connected and kicked into life and have been ok ever since. I have now unpaired them from my phone and use them with my office laptop instead for calls on teams and zoom. The case doesn't do wireless charging which is disappointing again. Overall for the money I wouldn't buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Quality I have been using the Sony WF-1000XM3 headphones for two and a half weeks now. I use them every day for running. My first impression when opening the box was that these headphones are built to a high standard. The charging case looks and feels nice although it is a little bulky when compared to the Airpods case or even the Airpod Pro case. Setting up the headphones is straightforward - I use mine with an Apple iPhone 12. I had to download an app from the app store, pair via bluetooth settings and then I was good to go. The sound quality is excellent with deep bass and crisp high notes. Noise cancelling works well and the ambient sound setting is very good too. I have the ambient sound control turned on when I am running to allow some level of traffic sound through so I don't get hit by a bus! The headphones come with a variety of rubber buds so getting a good fit for your ear should be straight forward. I have stupid ears that most earbuds do not fit - they usually fall out. I have managed to get a good fit with the Sony headphones by using the supplied rubber tips. Battery Life is excellent - I have used these for at least an hour per day for the last two weeks and have yet to charge the case! I have taken calls whilst out and have found the sound quality to be very good. I have been able to hear the callers clearly and they have been able to hear me clearly too. The touch controls work well but are a bit limited. You can set the touch control function for each earbud from the app. They are set in groups so for me I have the left one set as Ambient Sound Control. A single tap will cycle through the Noise Cancelling/Ambient Sound/Off and a hold will allow outside sounds in and lower the volume so if someone starts talking to you it is possible to hear them. I have the right setup for playback control so I can start and stop tracks, next track and previous track. It is not possible to mix and match the commands, for instance you couldn't have the right hand earbud set for one tap to start/stop track, two taps for volume up, three taps for volume down. The Adaptive Sound Control can be a bit annoying. This feature adjusts the ambient sound control depending on your movements so, for example, if I am sat at my desk noise cancelling is active. If I am running then Ambient Sound is active. Sounds good but in practice walking around the house can cause it to change settings. So if you decided to have one setting for when you are stationary and another for walking it would continuously switch between the two. Doesn't sound like much of an issue but when it changes the volume drops and you get a beep on the LH earbud to indicate it has changed - annoying if you are cleaning and go from stationary to walking often. Overall I am really happy with these headphones and I think they offer excellent value for money (paid £139)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound Quality I use a streaming service that uses lossless FLAC recordings and these headphones make the most of that extra quality. The bass is deep and full and the trebles are high and crisp. The 360 sound support is something different and it's handy that my streaming service also provides access to a good library of tracks that offer this feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is good, issues with ASC transition Pros, - Good sound, suits well for listening to music. Music is crystal clear and renders perfectly also the app optimization is a charm. - Decent sound for calls and provides good clarity for voice calls even in noisy environment - Decent noise cancellation, would require to play around with the ear buds, post which its pretty decent - App is neat and great GUI, allowing focused navigation and user friendliness - The case is pretty sturdy and well designed. Cons - Adaptive Sound Control is a dud, the transition is bad and disturbing. I am aware that you can change the setting so that the tone doesn't play when it transitions, but even without that there is a drop. It needs to be smoother especially during calls. - Effective noise cancellation is not easy to achieve, will need to try out multiple ear buds and find the right fit.

When outside walking and the wind blows, the design makes the windsound amplifies in the ear. - bad design 2. The part you put in to the ear is too big. Hurts after some time. Could be made softer or diffrent sizes. - the button set up could been better. - some strange surround sound starts when on the phone. Taking in every car that drives by, with a bad buzzing sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed but it may be me! I had read so many good reviews about these headphones and the sound and controls are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look Great - not for me I bought these on recommendation. I listen to a lot of music and wanted to treat myself even though I already have good quality in ear buds. The bass was poor even by tweaking the equaliser so I tried different in ear size fittings which made little difference. After trying various different ways of fixing the problem I sent them back via Amazon along with the two year extended warranty which to be fair they refunded quickly and without hesitation. Pity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bad Had for around 2 weeks now. First, I would point out that the battery is very impressive. The whole device lasts days without the need to recharge. However, the BT connectivity seems to be very up and down. For half a day I literally just couldn't get them to connect to my phone and play any sound, it fixed itself eventually. Sometimes loses partial cennectivity for whatever random reason, even though the handset holder is only in my pocket. Souns is good, bass is good. Nothing is outstanding about it really, but not bad either. Just average I suppose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just fantastic sound!! As an IPhone user deliberated long and hard between these and IPods Pro. I bought the IPods pro but had to return them as the left one kept falling out of my ear and failing the fit test even with the largest tips. Bought the WF-1000 MX3 and the difference in sound quality is astonishing. The Sony are so much more refined. Connectivity is hit and miss( So were iPods) battery life gets nowhere near what’s claimed( iPods were the same) and I think I’m gonna have to get some alternative foam tips( must have a cavernous left ear canal) All these little things are forgiven though when the music comes flowing through and the superb noise cancelling has me in my own little bubble.

It’s been 2 months and already had 2 pairs and still faulty. Not worth the money for the hassle. Noise cancelling is really good when the product doesn’t have issues. Would not buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this without seeing it from Richer Sounds as they have stopped keeping stock, so it was a bit of a risk. It’s very easy to set up and the sound is great. It’s quite heavy and I find it difficult to fit as I have a small ear canal, it comes out when I run, but I think I’ll get used to it. If we weren’t in a Covid situation I probably could have tried some in the shop. I wouldn’t be put off recommending it though as it does sound great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, Awesome design, Great features. I've brought the Sony wf-1000xm3 (weird name I know) few weeks prior and been using them since. I will keep it short, so in my honest opinion these 1000xm3 are still well competitive in the same price category. They deliver quite an amazing music listening experience with both great low frequency response to both clear mids and highs. The active noice canceling is still best for it's price range and better than the competition however it will depend how well the earbuds fits on your ear. I've zero complains about the feature set of these earbuds. The companion app is a must have for the feature it provides. 100% would recommend to anyone that wants great sounding activate noice canceling earbuds within 1000xm3's price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expectations well managed I read tons of reviews before purchasing these earbuds and I'm not deluded at all. They sound great and the EQ feature really allows you to tailor the sound to your needs: I'm a big fan of Sony headphones, from my beloved MDR7506 Studio to this pair of earbuds music sounds always great! The noise cancelling feature is still one of the most acclaimed across the market even after 2 years these little guys have been around: I can watch my movies even sitting on the noisiest of the London underground lines without being bothered too much about the environmental noise around me. Battery wise, for the use I do of these (commuting to/from work) power lasts forever, never had to stop listening to my music because of flat battery. I don't feel the lack of water proofing IP rating as I don't usually workout... My children make me run anyway! Only minor flaw is the connectivity jumps a little bit too much when I set the option to prioritise quality over connectivity: I have a Google pixel 4a, and with the phone in my pocket the connection jumps quite often. With the lower quality streaming option enabled (great Sony gave this option!) It's stable, and to be honest, as I'm using them for the commute I wouldn't notice the difference anyway as I'm not focused only on the music listening. I am overall really pleased with my purchase and definitely won't regret additional features may a newer model will come out soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mr N Barton I bought my ear phones two weeks ago, initial thoughts are hovering around being pleased with my purchase, but not overly so. They tick the box when addressing sound quality, fit and user friendliness, however they do lack in what I believe to be key features, such as, being able to locate an ear phone, if miss placed, via the app, or bing able to balance them to your ear's adaptability - at their hefty price l would expect features like this to be available. The only negative feedback I have found to date is the ear phones require charging more frequently than advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in ear Headphones Award What HiFi19,20 and 21 Bought these about a month ago, glad I did! They didn't win What Hifi's best in ear headphones for 3 years (2019,20 and 21) for nothing. They sound really good! The bass is great but doesn't take away from or drown out the mids and highs, which are nice and bright. Especially with the DSEE hx turned on, although this srtiously affects battery life. Which is 8 hours per headphone charge with no ambient noise control on, 6-7 hours with noise cancelling but only approx 3 hours with DSEE Hx turned on to upscale your mp3s to make them sound like hi resolution audio. There are another 3 full headphone charges in the case when it's fully charged. The 360 reality audio sounds quite good and you get a 3 month trial of Tidal with the headphones to sample it. Other streaming service trials are offered but I'm not sure for how long and I'd recommend Tidal which also has plenty Dolby Stmos tracks to sample. The Sony Headphone Connect app is great! You can set the headphones to automatically go into noise cancelling mode or ambient noise mode to let outside noise in if you're walking or running or when you go to a lication you frequent. So for example if you want to let traffic noise in when you're running, you can set it to automatically go into ambient noise mode and let the traffic noise in. Or you cccan set it to automaticalky go into noise cancelling mode when you're at home, if you don't want any distractions whole you're listrning to your music. They come with 7 different rubber tips, so you get a good fit in your ears and create a good seal to keep outside noise out. Ambient noise mode uses the microphones on the headphones, to play your surrounding audio into your ears and can even set it to recognise and concentrate on human voices. My only criticism is they could be a touch louder. The bass and your music do a pretty good job of keeping the outside world muted without noise cancellation, but when you do turn it on, there isn't a lot that gets through and into your ears, once you've got a good fit on the earbuds creating a good seal and the bass is pretty loud, I'd just prefer a bit more volume but this really is nit picking! I think the headphones are great and I'd rate them a solid 9/10!

I was a little concerned by the battery issue but I admit they seem to last much longer than I thought. The noise cancelling is also surprisingly good for a pair of IEM. The fitting is perfect to me and the size appropriate. Only the sound could be more satisfying given the price. Some genre sounds very good but when it comes to a more "saturated" type of music, wired earbuds still deliver a better yeld. The only real flaw I see, is the case, which quite big and, above all, strangely shaped: unconfortable in the pocket and uneasy to place on the table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great battery life and fit Was looking for in ear phones that were as good as Apple AirPods Pro but not as pricey. These have great audio, noise cancelling and battery life. the fit is great as they have a way of locking into your ears unlike other EarPods that struggle to match your ear shape. The app control is great also but I am struggling a bit with the touch controls on the earphones themselves but that could be something I just need to get used to. Overall can highly recommend these as a real contender to Apple AirPods Pro as they are quality and much cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't believe the hype Every review I've seen has highly rated these earbuds but I find them extremely poor. I heavily rely on noise cancelling features as I'm highly sensitive to certain sounds and frequencies and had high hopes for these and unfortunately was left unimpressed. The 3D ear mapping feature is a gimmick and not a helpful "tool" as it is cumbersome to use and pretty useless. The "360" feature is the same,if you don't use a music streaming service that it links with then what's the point? The noise cancelling feature is incredibly poor even when earbud tips and settings have been adjusted.outside wind noise and traffic is still quite bad. What's worse is they can't be returned for full refund as "technically" there's no fault,biggest waste of money I've had in a few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best earphone I've tried! Of the wired earphones and headsets I've had the opportunity to try, the WF-1000XM3 is by far the best. Sound quality is amazing, comfort is good, and the design is elegant. Battery life lasts A LOT! Sometimes more than the officially indicated 6 h. The features are convenient: once an earbud is taken off, the device automatically pauses. After you'll put in back in, it just continue to play. The touch controls can be customised and are pretty intuitive. The many different sizes of (included in the case) allow for an awesome fit for everyone's ear. Noise cancelling is really helpful to concentrate on what your favourite playlist. The only negative point is related with noise cancelling: when this option is activated, the device automatically detects the type of ambient sounds quiet at home, noisy on the street, in a train station with an announcement in the back, etc.). The thing is, once the type of ambient sound changes, there is a little "beep" like noise and less than a second of pause in what you're hearing. This can be painful if it changes every minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrible choice for me I bought these ear pods thinking that they would be a great product of high quality and comfortable to wear. I can not deny that the sound quality was very good but as for practibility and usability, a very bad choice. The earbuds would not stay in my ears, no matter which size rubber attachment I used and the touch sensor, being extremely sensitive, changed the sound setting every time went to stop the piece from falling out of my ear. I appreciate that everyone's ears are shaped differently and that some models are not suitable for some people but for they were impossible to use so I got a refund and bought a different brand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Great Battery Life, very comfortable I have a lot of Sony product, including 5 sets of in-ear headphones. The WF-1000XM3 are my latest purchase and as per usual they meet the normal high standards of a Sony product. They sound superb on my dedicated music player, and sound just as good on my smartphone. Battery life is the best yet, averaging around 6 hours continuous playback and they are probably the most comfortable I’ve worn, especially for that duration. My only criticism is really the instruction leaflet, which is in the same format for most Sony product, it’s all pictures and virtually no text, and it’s a fold-out rather than a booklet. Apart from that another superb quality product from Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First, I went deaf, and then....Wow! Ok, that may sound an odd way to start a review, but in one sense it was true. I turned on the noise cancelling and I thought I'd gone deaf - it was that good at clearing away all noise. I even had to take one out to make sure it hadn't happened in real life. Next, I quickly and easily set up the Sony app and it was Wow! A piece of music played and I looked for the orchestra that was surrounding me. The spacial effect was that amazing. Moving onto my other music choices was just as fun. Even the music on my phone's games were suddenly enjoyable, not something I usually turn down. Plopping them back into the magnetically grabbing slots in the case and the lights turned on indicating their charging status. Overall, I'm extremely impressed. I can't wait for my holidays to begin when I can be whisked away for a few hours of crystal clear sounding movies and delightfully immersive music, while I play solitaire! Lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. They really work I've been using these for the last month and am now more impressed than ever. Initially I found them to be comfortable with an excellent sound quality. I did not find the noise cancelling to be very effective. After trying assorted combinations of socks, I finally found the ideal fit. The sound comes alive and cancelling is near perfect. Tip: if you suffer wind noise, set to "ambient sound off"

Comply foam tips work well but don’t last very long and need to be pushed into the case to get them to fit. Best tips I have found though are Azla Crystal tips, they cost a bit more but provide a great fit and very good grip while maintaining the amazing sound quality the buds provide. Shame that Sony don’t invest in providing tips that actually work well with their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just not as good as they should be Bought approx a month ago and am pretty disappointed. Why? 1) Interlacing/disruption artefacts when making phone calls so the other person's voice goes robotic. One of the primary uses for these and it can't do that 2) Ambient mode: Perhaps my expectations but I expected the microphone to pipe through the actual ambient sounds around you. Instead there is just a muffled version of real life, as you would expect if you have earphones in your ears :) 3) Battery life: Getting nowhere near the advertised battery life, under half that 4) Heavy product, prone to falling out of your ears. I get batteries are heavy but I am suggesting the centre of gravity is not well designed. 5) Time to "start up" so e.g. when a phone call comes in and you pull them out of the case, by the time they start up, it's pretty much too late to take the phone call Good Points: 1) Well screwed together and have a quality feel 2) Sound quality is generally good, although some issues with excessive mid-hi frequencies making music sound tinny sometimes, especially on poorer recordings. Equaliser doesn't cope with it. 3) Look nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied Maybe I was expecting too much from this product. I wanted something to use in the gym, and I thought that noise cancelling would eliminate the gym music and let me listen to mine. It does do this to a degree, but the pounding base of the gym is still there. Also when jogging in the open air the product does not eliminate wind noise, which is disappointing. All of this might be due to the fact that I have a small ear canal (obviously I use the smallest fitment supplied).

The bit I don’t get is the noise cancelling function. It just doesn’t appear to cancel outside noise. I’ve worked out how to switch on the noise cancelling function, but when I do it seems to make barely any difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some issues that likely are ironed out in XM4 Sound is incredible, make no doubt about it. Noise cancelling is fantastic. The downsides... The case is a little bulky and the earphones are a little bulky and heavy, these likely wouldn't stay in when running. The other thing is the environment based switching from ambient to noise cancelling. A great idea but badly execute. As train commuter who often walks short distances from platform.to platform and makes short train journeys, it means it has to switch often. This would be fine if the audio didn't mute completely as it changes. It really is irritating and makes the feature unusable for me. Maybe the XM4 will be 5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't buy these earphones under any circumstances The WF-1000XM3 in-ear earphones will make your life noticeably less pleasurable. Firstly, the sound quality is only marginally better than that of an earphone made in the late 1980s. They lack very basic features like a volume button which is important when you are listening absolutely anything at all. They have a habit of turning on and off and skipping songs randomly if you are wearing an article of clothing with a hood of any description.The microphone feature for answering calls is appalling - you would be better off shouting loudly into a sea shell than trying to communicate with someone using this function. The worst thing about these earphones, however, is that they don't want to be in your ears and will do anything to get out of there. You will spend a significant portion of your life searching for them in a state of heightened anger, regret and confusion. You will waste hours raking through a strangers leaves, combing beaches, sidewalks and gutters for them as they drop as silently from your person as a criminal fleeing Alcatraz. Go with something else, anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, lots of features I like music so i buy a lot of headphones and speakers, almost all brand's products i have. I wanted to buy 1000 xm3 but it was way too expensive so i bought it when the price came down after launching the new xm4's. Lets talk about the design. It looks and feel premium, Very minimal appearance when u wear it. Very comfortable. You can wear all day. It comes with variety of tips that suits almost all types of ears. It comes with charging case which i think is bit oversized compared to other brands. It sticks out of your pocket so need to put it in bag or somewhere securely. Battery life is about 4-5 hours if you are using 85% or more volume. Th sound quality is excellent, better with the app. Only downside is its not much louder the way i like it. For other people it might be loud but i like music loud loud.. The bass is punchy, crisp highs and clear mids makes it perfect for all types of music. Not extended highs which I was expecting but still its worth buying over airpods or pro. In short, i am very happy wih the purchase Highly recommended.

The noise cancelling feature works very well which i was dubious about before purchasing. Pleased with choice overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good headphones, but not all thought through I bought them a couple of months ago. Experience is overall good, with a couple of things that the engineers didn't really think through: - Position of mic on the outer side of the unit gets all the wind when you are cycling. There is no way around it with the music, and you can only wear one unit if you are talking with the head turned, shielding the mic. - There is no delay in switching the modes and no cycling mode, so if you stopped for the traffic light it will go into another mode, and then switch back to running. For me, this function is useless - I had to turn it off. - Microphone attracts too many external sounds - there is no pre-filtering present. With the moving traffic around, I am getting constant complaints from the people on the other side of the line. Honestly, I am a bit disappointing with Sony not taking care about the wind, the moving noise while selling this product in Holland. Finally, this is what this country is all about ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bit disappointing. Sound quality good. Set up and pairing not so much. Have tried twice with chat help. 1st failed, my fault device not fully charged. 2nd failed when during the chat the contact just dropped off. I will try chat help again when I get time. My main reason for choosing these is the promised built-in Alexa which I not yet been able to access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and NC I love the battery life. They last a long time and charge up quickly in case. The Noise Cancelling works great as well. The complete customizable EQ is incredible to have. Here are my gripes....Sony, please add volume controls in a firmware update. I also wish you would have given these earbuds an IPX rating but seeing that they are not water resistant, I can see why you didn’t.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound, terrible connection stability Nice sound and the noise cancelling is pretty good. The Bluetooth connection is terrible if you have any other BT devices connected to your computer. The instructions are in the form of hieroglyphics drawn by a special needs small child, i.e., utterly useless. You can't change the vollume on the earbuds - only on the device you are connected to. Registering the purchase was a nightmare with 'you are not authorised to view this page' error messages. Absolutely ridiculous for a company like Sony to have a non-functioning web presence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from disapointed I bought this product to reduce the noise whilst in hospital. Totally ineffective! But good sound quality (at quiet times). Back home, I thought that they must be faulty and tried various noise sources. Standing close to my chop saw there was some noise reduction - but not much. My wife bought me a pair of (cheaper) over ear headphones which work really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Badly let down After 1 year I'm only getting less than 45 minutes of listening to my music. I'm a light user so they should not have worn out so quickly. I'm a loyal Sony customer and very happy with my other Sony products. Since I'm just over a year there's no warranty. So sadly I do not recommend these true wireless ear buds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, not Great. I normally buy Bose for my listening devices but this time I thought I'd give Sony a go. You can tell just by the packaging, quality of the materials, how it simply connects with no fuss etc that its a quality product. Sound quality is good but not great. Its not as bassy as I'd hoped for, my genre of music is Heavy Metal so high volume and rich deep bass are a must and although these are good they are not great. Not loud enough and not bassy enough, for me anyway. Ive been through all the settings and equaliser etc and they are what they are I can only assume. Also one of the buds fell out while at the gym which shouldn't really happen but these don't come with the little hook that goes around the ear and I have tried all the buds that come supplied and the fit is good on the whole but they shouldn't really be dropping out. The battery life I've found a disappointment also. Advertised as 6 hours from full charge. At the gym they died after just 2 hours. Because I have to have them at full volume I can only assume this is the reason but I can cope with that. Just take the case with you and recharge as and when needed. Overall I am happy with them. Would I have purchased them knowing what I know now? Probably not, I'd have probably stuck with Bose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent earphones After purchasing a mobile phone without a headphone socket, I decided to purchase these wireless noise-cancelling earphones because I already owned the WH-1000XM3 Headphones and knew that these would have the same noise-cancelling capability, build-quality, sound-quality and long battery life. These are excellent earphones in a beautiful case. I would say that they are quite large for earphones, but they are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time and give great quality sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price I could buy better Left ear battery drains quicker than the right. Earbuds don't stay in the ear very well, if you have long hair, it will be a little problem for you, because it's not in the ear, so if you move your hair there will be hight possibility that the earbud will fall out. Other than that, the voice is really nice. Battery life is nice in general.

They are very bulky and can't get them into my ears sweet spot. No matter how much I try I feel a bit disconnected from the music, as such the sound is just OK but nothing special. On a positive note, the noise cancelling feature was good. I'm sure they would be brilliant if they fitted properly. I prefer my old cheap earphones to these that sound just as good but are a much better fit. Sorry sony buttress are not for me.

Then it comes to the issues that I have faced and I bought it just a week a go right from original box, all the rest design, sound quality, or other feathers makes fore me any sense.

The options of the functions on each piece is easy to change and use. The only slight negative is that they are not great for jogging. I personally have found it slightly difficult for one of my ears to fit well so I am assuming I have a different shape. I do like them though and they are good for use if you are just taking calls etc. Walking is fine too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WF-1000XM3 I purchased this product a week ago, was happy with its early arrival, it's looked great and paired straight out of the box. I was a little disappointed with the battery life after charging, the power only lasted for two hours . I tried several times to no avail. Reported this to Sony customer service,how replied promptly suggesting a few actions to rectify the issue, unfortunately, if persons like me are likely to experience difficulty if they are not IT literate. May I suggest that a program like PC companion be modified to update and troubleshoot any issues with Sony's products. Still trying to resolve the battery issue, I will probably give up process too difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound but not a great fit I decided to buy these headphones having not had Bluetooth headphones before. While the sound quality is very good, I have difficulty with the headphones falling out of my ears. I have tried a number of the different cushion covers provided but have yet to find one that works for me. This may be a problem with the shape of my ears as opposed to the headphones themselves as I have had similar problems with headphones provided with mobile phones but I hoped this would be different. I have a pair of Shure in ear headphones which fit very well and have similar cushions so I will persevere to see if I can find a good fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointment Sound is really of poor quality. People speaking with me can hear surrounding much better than me. During calls sometimes I hear "beep" and then loosing 0.5-1 second of conversation. Often I hear wrongly digitized sound (sounds like quantization problems - metallic like voices). Problems with audio quality persists from the beginning. Software update don't improve anything. I hoped that AI means that solution will improve along with time I am using it, but now I am disappointed. Quite expensive device with very poor quality - I don't know if it's only me. Much cheaper JBL Endurance dive (swimming earphones!) give better experience for people that speaking with me.

However, I found the instructions very confusing especially on noise cancelling and still don't really understand the options but have found ones that work for me. Occasional dropouts so selected 'Priority to connection' rather than sound and much better. Comfortable fit. Case a bit bulky. Overall, the best earbuds I have yet owned (and I have tried many!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound excellent I already have some sony wireless noise cancelling over ear for which I am very pleased and these in ear match the over ear for sound. As most reviewers say, the set up is a challenge at first and it would be good to have some clear instructions. I have yet to sort out how to choose the correct size buds to ensure the pieces don't fall out. And I wold prefer some flexibility as to which actions I need to do in the app and which on the ear pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever! Zero stars not available but these are the biggest waste of money ever. Don't understand how they've had good reviews. They just don't fit AT ALL so fall out constantly, into sand, into wet floors in public toilets, down the side of the car seat, not enough adjustable rubber bits and terrible fit. Terrible design means that when you are constantly trying to put them back in, where you place your fingers to do it is where the adjustments are so each time you try to fit them the annoying nasal american voice announces 'ambient sound on / ambient sound off' ALL. THE. TIME. it's not necessary, i can tell from the sound whether it's on or off. massive design fail, on the other side it turns them on or off so you're constantly trying to make them fit, constantly being told whether noise cancelling is on or off and constantly turning it on or off. AWFUL. Sound quality not that great, more cable bang than my wired ear-buds. really really awful, no redeeming features. unless you're walking extremely soft and slowly, you hear every single bit of body movement, wind, breathe, just not good enough sound quality at all. and don't even try to run in them. really wish i hadn't wasted my money on them. My 7-yr old wired bose ear buds which i superglued back together have a much better sound and fit than these! really don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality and value. Wanting to upgrade on a budget of £100 and having read the ‘best of reviews’ these seem really good value to me. Sound quality is excellent. You do have to experiment with the earplugs provided to get a good fit - but the improvement on my £40 wired phones is significant. And, although by no means perfect, the ANC makes a noticeable difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So disappointed I bought these hoping they would be amazing. I find them so uncomfortable in my ears. I cannot find a size which does not make my ear hurt. The only way I can get a really good depth of sound is if I hold them in my ears or keep pushing them in further every five mins. I have fiddled with the equaliser too to not avail. This is even when listening to audio books not just music it just sounds rubbish. Also to make it sound half good I have to look down when I walk or run.. looking up makes the sound depth drop even further. I wish I had spent a bit more for the Bose or just stuck with the Apple wired earphone that came with my old iPhone… they were so much better and comfortable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tinny sound, noise cancelling not noticeable Disappointing in every way, couldn't even get the earbuds to stay in my ears while sitting down at home. I wanted to block outside traffic noise but the earbuds made no difference and their sound quality was tinny with intermittent streaming failures. Also, be warned you can only download the fine control app (Sony Connect) to a smartphone, not to a pc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality noise cancelling earbuds Bought over a year ago (June 2021) when I thought i'd lost a pair purchased in April 2021. I love these ear buds for the incredible sound quality and the subtleness of the noise csncelling system. There is an amazing amount of technology built into these beauties. The main drawback is the length of time they last on a full charge - having two sets is very useful since one set can be recharging while using the other but this isn't a very cost effective solution!! The earbuds are comfortable and stay in my ears using the medium size buds, sometimes they do fall out and I don't think they are very suitable for use when going for a run. Overal, my most favourite earbud I have ever purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent in-ear headphones I have only had these headphones for about a fortnight and I can honestly say the sound experience is excellent. I have a few things I’m not too fond of. The app very rarely connects to the headphones I have to use ‘Bluetooth’ in the iPhone settings to connect. Then even though I initially get the headphones to fit neatly into my ears they tend to work free over a short amount of time. I may not have mastered them yet. The app has some lovely options for different eq’s for different listening conditions. Overall an excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound but left one falls out Great sound but if Sony can’t provide a replacement bud to make the left one stay in my ear they’re going back… Have tried every one of the different sizes and types provide in the box and nothing will make it stay in. The largest silicone one lasts for 5 - 10 minutes before it drops to the floor. If I get a satisfactory resolution I would change my recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great. Not a great fit Sonically these are impressive units. Big smooth yet detailed sound. Noise cancelling is also pretty impressive. Unfortunately the Sony solution to securing these buds to the ear canal has not evolved in years. Regardless of which bud gels are used, the fit is poor and they will fall out with minimal encouragement. I can only use these if I am seated. Not good for walking/running. I appreciate that I might be some genetic freak that has different ear canals from the majority of people, but it is a shame Sony is relying entirely on the friction caused by ramming the buds into the ear to hold these units. Look at what Bose are doing in this area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some good features, others not so good I have had these for about two weeks. The sound quality is very good as is the Bluetooth linking with my smartphone. Less good is the retention in my ears. I have tried all the sizes of the inserts and none of them is very good, although the largest is marginally better after I have made it wet (which shouldn't be necessary) - they are just too big and the extension into the ear canal is relatively too short. They keep falling out and I am afraid that one or other may go down a drain in the street or into the washing-up water at home. The ability to advance to the next podcast is not an advantage because it is far to easy to do, and it is a pain to try to get back to where I was before inadvertently touching the right-hand ear-bud (to try to screw it more firmly into my ear, again and again!). I have not formad any opinion of the noise-cancelling; it seemsc to me to make little if any difference. Poor value for money.

But for this reason I returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, not so great battery! I can't say too much as I have only had them for a week. In general the features and sound quality are as good as all the reviews over the last few years have said. I can't really add anything there but after researching and seeing the large drop in price, now the v4 earbuds have been out for a while, I thought I would buy a pair. For short walks with the dog the buts didn't seem to loose much power - staying between 80 and 100% with noise cancelling and the auto sound enhancement feature active. The issue has come when watching a movie where, after only 1 hour, after being fully charged, the right earbud gave a warning saying it had low battery (20%) whilst the left earbud was at 80%. Not sure why this would be the case but if it persists over the next few weeks they will be going back - good price and sound or not!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality, decent noise cancelation Been using these bad boys for a month and a half now, after my airpods pros took a dive in the ocean (together with the rest of me). Sound quality is great, for bass heavy music (DNB and electronic) they out perform my pods. I'm fond of the incoming noise cancelation ( almost non existant), but during calls the microphones evidently pick up quite a bit off noise. The only real beef I have is that they seem to drop Bluetooth connection and reconnect (quite fast) during long calls (20mins +). For the price - well worth it, and can highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent noise cancelling I have tried many brands, and these are the best so far for the noise cancelling feature. The sound is just right, not too much of anything (I hate too much bass for example), shame that you can't adjust the volume just by touching them. The whole touch control can be annoying, especially when you have to wait for ages to turn on the noise cancelling, as it is the third available option, and every time when you put them on you have to go through all of them again from the beginning. Shame that you can't just set one option as default. The design is not ergonomic - I keep touching the wrong part of the earphone, the earpieces keep falling out of my ears, and they are uncomfortable. They are ok if you don't move, but if you do you'll lose them at some point. I think the main reason for that is that they are very heavy, they should have some additional support to hold properly in your ears. Overall, they are not bad, I kept them for the noise cancelling reasons, but the design could've been better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound but they keep falling out..!! These ear buds have a truly excellent sound quality and performance but I'm not sure what size / shape of ear canal they are designed to fit but it certainly isn't mine! I have tried all of the ear piece adaptors supplied and can 'just about' get them them to stay in place. I've had them just over a week and one or other of them has fallen out onto the road / floor on at least 3 occasions so far - one time while I was cycling. NOT IMPRESSED! Providing you are seated and not moving, ie on an aircraft, bus etc then fantastic product - 5 Stars, if you actually want to move / run / exercise / cycle then 1 star. In the 'Which Consumer' review they made a very similar comment - some of their testing panel found the buds would not fit tightly in their ears - I totally agree. My ear canals are just too narrow to push even the smallest adaptor into place hence why they will fall out given even half a chance. Sony - please supply them with a set of even smaller rubber adaptor. I'm a 52 year old bloke so how on earth a petite teenager with dainty ears is supposed to get on is a total mystery to me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I've had them for two weeks now and although I'm happy with the sound quality I'm extremely dissapointed with the battery life. I already knew that ANC uses a lot of battery but even in normal mode I'm lucky to get around 4 hours listening time before I have to put them in the charging case. Also another irritation is the charging case itself. Who at Sony thought it would be a great idea to give it a round base that you can't stand upright. I was looking forward to getting these earbuds but maybe I should have tried another brand first.
