Industry-leading noise cancellation

The noise-canceling technology in the WF-1000XM3 is the most advanced ever in truly wireless headphones, with our HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1e. So you can lose yourself completely in your music.

Dual Noise Sensor Technology

Dual microphones—one feed-forward and one feed-back—on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sounds from your surroundings, whether it's in-flight noise, city traffic, or office chatter. 

HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1e

Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1e gets to work. It not only cancels significantly more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power.

Exceptional sound quality

Packed with advanced audio technology, the WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling earbuds not only deliver noise-free listening but also offer breathtaking sound quality.

Superior listening with a new Bluetooth® chip

Rather than relaying sound from one ear to the other, the newly developed Bluetooth® chip transmits sound to the left and right ears simultaneously for an exceptional listening experience.

Optimized antenna design

The placement of the headphones' Bluetooth® antenna has been optimized to ensure a wider coverage. This helps keep the signal strong for uninterrupted streaming.

Up to 24 hours of listening

On a full charge, the headphones offer 6 hours of power, and the handy charging case provides a further three charges to keep you going throughout the day. That's up to 24 hours of noise-free listening. With noise-canceling off, it's even longer — 8 hours of power on a full charge, with a further three charges from the charging case, for up to 32 hours of play time.

Talk at a touch with Quick Attention

Placing your finger over the earbud turns the volume right down and lets in ambient sound. So you can instantly chat with someone without taking your headphones off.

Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do

The Sony | Headphones Connect app offers Adaptive Sound Control, a smart function that automatically detects what you're up to—such as traveling, walking, or waiting—then adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation. You can also customize the settings to your preferences.

Take trips without interruption and lose yourself in music with no background noise.


Be aware of everything around you, from street to office, while still enjoying music.

Headphones that react to you

A proximity sensor in each earbud can detect whether you're wearing one or both, and adapts playback accordingly.

Pause the music: Take out one earbud and the music automatically pauses on both sides.

Resume playing: Put the earbud back in and the music automatically resumes playing.

Be in control of your listening

With the Sony | Headphones Connect app, Ambient Sound Control lets you adjust the volume of background sound and gives you the option to allow voices alone to be heard. Meanwhile, the Equalizer lets you customize sound levels to suit your music.
