I’ve used a number of Sony headphones in the past, from earbuds, over-ears, and in-ear monitors, and they’ve always left a good impression in terms of sound quality and comfort. One of them was the WH-1000XM2, which was highly regarded as one of or if not, the best Noise Cancelling Headphones in its class.

Sony Proves their Prowess in Noise Cancelling with the WH-1000XM3 Wireless Headphones: Coming to PH this October!At IFA 2018, the Japanese tech giant has announced its successor, the WH-1000XM3, which offers a number of enhancements over its predecessor, including a new design, a more capable processor, and enhanced noise cancelling features.

  • The WH-1000XM3 features a slimmer silhouette and is lighter than its predecessor. For added comfort, it also has a thicker headband cushion, and for easy storage, comes with a stylish fabric case.
  • The newly designed HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1, has 4 times better performance than its predecessor, and can further cancel out background sounds such as street noise and human voices.
  • Dual Noise Sensor Technology captures  ambient noise using the dual microphones, then passes the sound data to the processor to cancel out the noise.
  • Designed with frequent travelers in mind, these headphones are fitted a 40mm driver unit with a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) Diaphragm  Design that allows it to reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz.
  • Adaptive Sound Control monitors your physical situation, and automatically adjusts the level of noise cancelling.
  • With Quick Attention Mode, you’ll be able to hear what’s going on around you, just by placing your right hand over the right earpiece, which then decreases the music volume.
  •  Swiping the touchpad in different directions allow you to control playback and volume.
  • The WH-1000XM3 offers up to 30 hours of battery life, and an upgraded Quick Charging feature that gives you five hours of playback with just ten minutes of charging via a USB Type-C port.

The Sony WM-1000XM3 is set for a local launch this October, 2018. Pricing is still to be confirmed.
