Sony WF-1000XM3 Headphone Reviews- The King of Noise Reduction in True Wireless Headphones

Earlier, Sony released its latest true wireless headset, the Sony WF-1000XM3, which has attracted much attention. Sony uses a chip developed by it to transmit the right and left ears synchronously, rather than the traditional true wireless headphones, and needs to transmit the sound signal to one headset before the other; The theory of noise reduction will be good.

The box white bottom, printed with the WF-1000XM3 front photo, the lower left corner of the 6h-18h represents the headset’s one-time battery life and charging tank life, add up to 24 hours, the lower right corner of the wireless logo and NC noise reduction logo description.

This is actually the lid of the WF-1000XM3 charging chamber, with a metallic coat of gold on top, very delicate and flashing in the light. Black-and-gold matching, one for a grumpy track machine and the other for a quiet tool.



The gold top cover must be printed with SONY logo, this place does not print does not conform to Sony’s style, this point of view, this box is like a jewelry box.

The black part below is skin-like feel, feel more comfortable, in fact, I prefer the feel of silicone, USB type-C interface in the back of the place, but there is a disadvantage, is too deep

WF-1000XM3 headset black color scheme is very simple, black gold color matching, is also a more classic color combination, SONY logo and noise-cancelling microphone mouth are gold dotted, the panel circle is the touch area, the default right touch is pause/play, two is the next song, three is the previous song.

The back side of the WF-1000XM3 is marked with a Left or R logo, and there is still a blind spot on the left side, with a careful look at the cavity with Amalaysian-made, 5V voltage.


The WF-1000XM3 has charging contacts on the inside, which is the front direction, and the rear half-full is the distance sensor, which is used to remove the headphone pause function.

Oblique guide hole, wearing will be better, especially the bottom of the guide hole stout high friction rubber surface, more difficult to slide, the author pro-test hard up and down shaking head, will not fall down, do not know to see others shake off, is not wearing tight, but even if wearing very tight, the author does not recommend when the movement, Because the WF-1000XM3 positioning is not exercise, because there are too many bumps, and for fast movements such as running, cycling and so on, the wind noise is very loud.

In terms of sound quality testing, the author turns on DSEE HX sound with the lossless music of the local library (the official website explains: DSEE HX ™ digital sound enhancement engine compensates for lost tail tones for high-frequency signals and digital audio compression, resulting in high-quality sound close to Hi-Res). WF-1000XM3 delay is done very well, many people, mobile phone multi-signal complex place, and there will be no disconnect, loss of connection and other unstable situation

WF-1000XM3 this time the biggest bright spot I think is noise reduction function, using QN1e chip, before and after the dual feedback microphone, look at the data looks like a very strong look, but many people still will not be optimistic about the real wireless this small power device noise reduction performance, the author in WF-1000XM3 before the arrival, just look forward to, Worried about noise reduction, but when it got to the moment when it turned on, the whole world did settle down, reminding me of 17 years with the MDR-1000X generation. Repeatedly contrasting the difference between noise reduction on and off, such as the sound of water flowing under the tap, the sound becomes a bit sharp under noise reduction, because noise reduction reduces the sound of the low-frequency part of the water flow. Early peak on the road walking, the surrounding become softened a lot, will only vaguely hear the sound of the vehicle’s horn, car roar can filter out most of the, but those engine sound very large vehicles, noise reduction or can not be completely filtered out, the author personally think is the real wireless noise reduction power is not enough. While the WF-1000XM3 is unlikely to filter out all the noise, it’s a shame compared to Sony’s noise-cancelling wireless headphones and other home-made noise-cancelling wireless headphones.

Sony WF-1000XM3 as a noise-cancelling wireless headphones, and did not forget the essence of real wireless headphones, do a good job of low-latency, high stability of the case, noise reduction and do the ultimate in true wireless, to our daily life, brought great convenience and quality of life. Of course, the WF-1000XM3 is not perfect, for example, does not support the apt-X transmission protocol, the headset is slightly larger, but these do not prevent the WF-1000XM3 from becoming a good true wireless headset.
