A swivel foldable structure gives these wireless headphones ease of portability when they are not in use and pack up neatly to fit in a compact case.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They stop working after perspiring at the gym I would never buy again or a Sony product. They stopped working an would not charge
Date published: 2022-11-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery stopped recharging after only 3 months I loved them at first although the padding was a bit thin for the price. Then they stopped recharging no matter if they were connected to the computer or an AC-USB plug. I had NO time to try to figure out how to have them fixed and given the price I did not expect this. Then 2 years later they started working for one day. Now again they will not recharge. This is 10 days after the support ends. I hope Sony can help me figure out how to have them repaired without spending another small fortune. I really miss them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds Expectations at Every Turn After years of only using Sony equipment I'd receive or purchase second-hand, I found myself in need of a pair of headphones after my favorite Sennheisers stopped working. Broken hearted and pessimistic upon finding they were no longer available, I took to spending hours upon hours researching meticulously to find the set that perfectly suited my needs and tastes. I love high quality audio and listen to most of my music in WAV or FLAC, though I dislike the inconvenience and high variability that comes with necessitating amps and such. A basshead at heart, something with a little extra fun in the low end is where I find my happy place. I far prefer the comfort of over-ear phones, but had really wanted to experience the convenience of wireless audio. Knowing myself well, though, I worried I would regularly forget to charge a set that required it too frequently and had concerns about latency and loss over wireless. Closed-back, noise cancelling headphones were a must as I regularly listen, work, and study from a home office and heavily rely on the lack of distraction they grant. Were there even headphones that existed that would accomplish everything I wanted? Skeptical, I decided on the WH-1000XM3. The price point made me very weary, especially as I had never before spent so much on a pair of headphones. My apprehension was quashed almost instantly. These headphones check every single one of my boxes, and more. The bass is clear and punchy, giving me all the fun I look for in my music while the mids and highs are not lost to them; no muddiness and even bright when need be. They connect flawlessly to both my PC and my mobile devices, with range that even allows me to leave my device and walk around the whole house without worry of cutting out. The ANC is so superb that it nearly unnerved me as I got used to it (I live very close to an airport on a busy street - not hearing all that background noise is a welcome surprise)! The option in the app to use the ANC while allowing speech through is a wonderful feature I find myself using frequently. As far as battery life goes, Sony really over-delivered on their promises here. I use these every day for at least four hours at a time and find that even after a year of daily use, they only need charged once a week. With all of these benefits, I would have dealt with them fitting not quite perfectly, but these are hands down also the most comfortable headphones I've ever owned. I went the extra mile to purchase a bluetooth receiver with A2DP for using these with my PC, however after testing these with both that and the built-in bluetooth on my PC, I don't believe I needed to. If your use-case is similar to mine, I cannot recommend a better pair of headphones.
