Bose’s quiet comfort range has been the gold standard for noise reduction headphones for some time, although Sony has been using the mdr-1000x and last year’s w-1000xm2 slowly and steadily to feel its presence. The W-1000xm3 is an iterative update that brings with it a slightly modified design and a new QN1 chip for noise reduction, and Sony promises better performance than ever before.
Sony Wh-1000xm3 sells at 29,990 rupees, 1,000 rupees lower than its predecessor when it went public in India, roughly the same price as its main rival, Bossi QC 35ii. It features a 40-millimeter drive per ear cup, a claimed 30-hour battery life, and support for high-resolution audio codecs such as aptxhd and ldac. Let’s take a look at the latest quotation of SONY in our comprehensive review.
SONY Wh-1000xm3 design, comfort and battery life
Although the W-1000xm3 looks quite similar to its predecessor, there are some obvious differences, such as the movement of the headband from metal to plastic, which reduces weight, but makes the headphones look and feel slightly lower. W-1000xm3 has two colors, black and platinum silver. This is the color used by our accreditation unit. The two products are characterized by the golden SONY logo and ear cup microphone highlights.
The new model is 20 grams lighter than W-1000xm2. The ear cup is soft, the clamping force is reduced, and the headband also has more stuffing. Therefore, headphones are very comfortable, even for extended listening sessions.
Touch controls are more reliable than W-1000xm2, and we find that its implementation is a bit uncertain. The volume can be changed by sliding the right ear cup up and down, and the right or left ears move forward or backward, respectively. In the middle of the ear cup, knock gently for two times, and the music will be suspended. Control is quite convenient, but they do need some habits.

You can also put your hand on your ear cup to activate the Quick Concern mode, which dramatically reduces the volume and lets in noise. The same gesture can also be configured to launch Google Assistant or Siri based on the smartphone you choose, although Alexa does not currently support it.
There are two physical buttons on the left ear cup: one for switching between noise cancellation mode (or calling Google Assistant / Siri) and a power button. The button is on the smaller side, and there is not much feedback. We want to see a dedicated auxiliary button instead of closing the function of switching noise cancellation mode.
It includes a canvas-covered reinforced backpack, a fairly small USB charging cable, an aircraft adapter, and a sturdy auxiliary cable. The earphone is flat and easy to store and comfortably installed in the high quality shell. When you turn on the headset, a robot girl will send out the battery’s voice. This can also be triggered by clicking the power button.
In this day and age, when most headphones, even high-end ones, are tied to tiny USB ports, the W-1000xm3 has a USB-type C port, which Sony claims will help shorten the time it takes the headset to fully charge by an hour. The company claims that headphones can last up to 30 hours in a single charge. We managed to easily match this statement, and in most cases, cancelling the noise is feasible. A full charge takes about three hours, but a 10-minute charge can charge the headset for five hours, which is impressive and useful.
Sony Wh-1000xm3 characteristics and noise cancellation
Traditionally, SONY’s noise reduction technology has not reached the standard set by boss. This time, SONY not only caught up, but actually exceeded BOS, which was not a dereliction of duty. This is because the new QN1 processor is used to eliminate noise and is said to provide about four times better performance than before.
In our experience, headphones can drown out the noise, whether it’s in the office or in the coffee shop in the mall, no matter what the situation is. The hiss of low volume is often nothing to do with Noise Cancelling Headphones.
Thanks to the generous foam filling and super ear (outer ear) design, passive voice isolation is also excellent. When the volume is over 80%, the headset does make a little noise, which should be remembered when used in crowded places.
There are multiple noise canceling profiles, allowing W-1000xm3 to adapt to any situation you are in. The disappointment, however, is that the “focus on sound” mode, which aims to filter out the voices of the people around you, eventually silences and distorts them.
