Ive worn mine for 12-18 hours per day since November 2018. Been using them through literally everything. They're great. It's never been a problem for me. I wear glasses too and am legally blind without them. I experience 0 bad pressure from this headset. The charge still works great but the charge reporting on the headset's battery is a bit screwed. Which always happens overtime with batteries. I've had 40% charge reported as 60% after 15-20 mins of charging from a dead battery. I've had a few rare audio cracks. Theres now some very slight peeping occasionally. But this could be wear and tear on my bluetooth transmitter since I haven't had that on USB DACs. Literally all of the complaints people have had on these headphones in reviews when it comes to duration and comfort were entirely false in my experience. I've had 0 issues in comfort ever since finding the optimal band adjustment for my head at the start. And I've sometimes had to wear these bad boys for one completely full charge. 30-35 hours. Due to all nighters for school work. Or a bender. And I'll repeat. I most often wear these things from 8 in the morning until I sleep 22-23. They suit me for literally everything. Im either very lucky or this headset was designed with West Euro skulls in mind.

It actually has a three mic array and you'll see it has three holes on the left cup. Update 4.2.2 improved mic performance.

I have a stupid question: can I just activate the noise cancelling even if I'm not listening to music or anything else? The main reason I'm interested in these is because I need to isolate myself from ANY sound (so including my own music) to focus better. Thanks :)

Yes you can. I often do that on flights. The only issue is that after a certain amount of time the headphones sleep and ANC turns off. I believe you can adjust the auto off timing in the Sony headphones app.

I've been waiting for the XM4 and still have not heard any confirmed news about it and end up getting the XM3 myself. So basically there's nothing negative on the XM3 that would made me consider getting one of these.

I recently bought it and its a really amazing headphone. I wont trade it with any headphone out there.I bought this primarily for music listening and the ANC. The sound was just too good and the ANC is second to none. So it is really a great purchase.

There is a little bit of sense in the reason not to buy them but on that logic you'd never buy anything. We'll always get a new phone, new car, new headphones or TV. Most times you only get incremental improvements for double the price, especially for electronics at launch anyway. Keep an eye on the market and if you only see small improvements over the past 3 years the likeliness is it's about time you went for it if that's what you still want.

The one reason that I won't buy them is the headband cracking issue. us.community.sony.com/s/question/0D54O0000610NHWSA2/cracked-headband-on-wh1000xm3-headphones?language=en_US Otherwise they would be my next purchase.

@نب ب oops sorry bro, just got fucked up with those bose 700 and qc35ii lmao yeah sony do support aptx, but that connection is a problem for ldac coz the quality jumps back and forth when the connection got weaker. ldac got outperformed by aptx in most cases coz our phone autopick stability over quallity, maybe it would be fixed with bluetooth 5.0?

@Ka Chun Ho did'nt know that.thanks! but I read the manual of xm3, and it says xm3 supports apt X. does it?
Ka Chun Ho
Ka Chun Ho 6 months ago
@نب ب coz xm3 was launched Aug 2018, the time when bluetooth 5.0 clearly wasnt popular. Would be expecting xm4 to support 5.0 also would be expecting xm4 to support multiple devices connection and better microphone. NC is already good enough so I would rather sony spent those money on improving these stuffs

The M4 are probably not coming before Q3 2020, maybe even 2021. The M3 are still really good and sell well so they can take more time to refine the M4. If I get a good deal for Black friday I'm definitely buying the M3.

How about clicking sound even when you turn your head to any direction. And if you are on the go by car or bus it becomes routine. my best guess is that it happens because of the strecht or tension of the platic joint parts.

Just bought these coming from the Bose QC35II, they sound about the same but these sound a bit better. O e thing I don't like already is that they don't switch seamlessly between devices. The Bose I had them connected to my iPad and my Galaxy S10+ and they would detect and connect automatically to both if they were both on. Then when I watched something on the iPad they would play them but if I paused and then used my phone and began listening to music per se, they would begin playing with a hitch. The Sony's don't and I've had to actually turn off the bluetooth on one device to switch to the other. One thing I love about the Sony's is the USB-C but overall, I think the Bose are a better buy. They just seem better and software wise. The Sony's have too much garbage in their app and don't sync seamlessly like the Bose do. One thing that drive me nuts about the Bose is that the wired cord one is thinner than the standard 35mm normal connector. Why couldn't they make them both the same and the same standard as the phone connector.

How does the LG V40 compare to the other phones sound quality. I have the galaxy but I wanted to know how it compares to the competition. Does it make a difference? I heard another phone great for sound quality but not for recording is one from Huawei according to audiophiles reviewers.

I'd like to ask you about the Sony CH700N. They sound ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, but I'm a bit afraid about the NC compared to the NC of the 1000XM3, particularly during flights. "Sadly", I used the 1000XM3 a couple of times at different expos and boy, they're top-notch. Anyway, going back to the 700N, are they still going to cancel noise good enough? These are going to be my first pair of NC headphones, and I'm sticking with Sony. I've tried a lot of other brands and for me, they sound better. I also tried some other Sony headphones without NC and they managed to sound incredible fine as well, so, I'm really confused. Any tips?

I don't like them lol. They sound mediocre even after tuning them. That's why I hate noise cancelling headphones in general. They don't sound nearly as good as the non noise cancelling headphones in the same price range. The Vmoda Crossfade 2 Wireless codex edition sound so much better than the Sony's

ANC is a godsend if you need to be in places where there is ambient noise. The thing is you don'thave to turn up the volume of headphones to drown out the ambient noise for Sony's excellent ANC is superior to even the BOSE! I have kids and in the house to myself to enjoy my music I must have some sort of ANC in order to enjoy my own downtime.

I had an opportunity to listen to a pair of headphones last weekend that blew my mind. Maryjane Diamond out of Spokane, WA has put so much hard work into her headphones and it really shows. Her company name is 'db Omega'. They come in many different colors and as far as sound goes, it's the best I've heard. would blow these away.
