Rock. Jazz. Pop. R&B. Country. Music for any mood. Listening to music has been a part of my life since childhood. My parents would have music going in the house as part of the background of whatever activities we were doing. That love of music has continued for me whether listening to live music at concert halls, attending Milwaukee’s huge music festival known as Summerfest, playing the radio or CDs or listening to portable music players. Yet those headphones for the portable players left much to be desired. Until I found noise canceling headphones. Miraculous!
Thanks to Sony’s industry leading Noise Canceling WH-1000XM3 Headphones, listening to music really means LISTENING TO MUSIC! Now I can actually hear the lyrics without trying to block out the traffic, people talking and airplane noise. That’s all due to their proprietary HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1. So, whether you are walking through a big city bustling with noise, riding the subway or trying to get some work done in your house full of kids, this is the headphone for you. Plus, they are ergonomically designed and comfortable to wear with the over your ear soft cushions resting on your ears. They also have Smart Listening by Adaptive Sound Control which automatically detects your activity and balances noise canceling levels accordingly. Nice!
As a business traveler, I depend on the battery’s longevity to get me through flight delays and waits in the airport. This model has up to 30 hours of battery life! Added bonus is that in just 10 minutes of charging, I can get five hours of playback which is inevitably something I realize as we are called to board the plane. Appreciate the thoughtfulness, Sony.
While I am traveling, I find the Google Assistant feature to be so helpful. All I have to do is press and hold the noise-canceling button and ask my “personal assistant” (aka my phone!) a question. So convenient. As is the ability to answer phone calls hands-free with a double tap or change tracks, adjust the volume and make calls by touching or swiping the panel. Sony really thought of everything.
Included in the compact carrying case are an audio cable to use for wired connections and a USB-C charging cable. A good way to stay organized and great for travel.
Sony WMX-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones are made to provide you with music and nothing else. You will actually hear the music the artist intended. Not the noise of your surroundings. Immerse yourself in your favorite musical sounds no matter where you are with these innovative headphones from Sony. As a music lover, you deserve it!
