In the Summer of 2017 a well-known Japanese audio company Sony represented its new model of wireless closed back over ear headphones Sony WH1000XM3 with the function of adjustable noise cancelling. The headphones have a smart look, quality sound and adaptive system of ANC.
Sony WH1000XM3 has a low impedance of 16 Ohm that makes it a great mobile device for MP3s and mobile phones. The frequency response of 4Hz-40KHz makes them high-resolution headphones for audiophiles and critical listening. The sensitivity of 104 dB provides a strong and quality sound at high volumes. The battery life of 30 hours is impressive. It is recharged quite fast within 3 hours. The support of NFC provides a great wireless connectivity.
The bright feature of Sony WH1000XM3 is an incredibly strong and deep bass. It makes the sound live and engaging. However, its strength puts the highs backwards and makes them somewhat dull. Of course, we should not expect a wide soundstage of the type of closed cups. In general the sound is balanced and will satisfy most users.
The ANC works perfectly not only for the steady sound, but also blocks all other noises like chattering, TV noise and others. The function of adjusting allows me to make it comfortable in the conditions I am using the headphones and pleasant for my ears.
Sony WH1000XM3 are comfortable to use wireless, but also have a detachable cable. The Bluetooth version is 4.2 and it supports a lot of profiles. The headphones also support aptX and aptX HD.
The headphones weigh just 380 g/13.4 oz. They are very light, comfortable, and not fatiguing for long wear. The cups are swiveling and foldable for a more compact size and a hard carry case provides safe and comfortable storage. The microphone is built in and it provides comfortable voice control functions and supports phone calls.
