This'll be the last video I do on these headphones (at least until the XM4's come out and I do a comparison), so if you have any further questions, drop em' in a comment below and I'll do my best to answer them! Happy holidays!

Hi Mark - thanks for the great review. I've had these for 5 months and am generally very satisfied, but I find the touch controls extremely unreliable. This only refers to the one-tap gesture to pause and play, everything else works fine. Any advice how to fix it? I couldn't find anything in the app to adjust touch sensitivity. Would installing the firmware update help?

I’ve heard that some of the plastic could crack. Has anyone one that owns these faced this issue?

No had them for 5 months no damage at all, they sound beautiful overall worth the 250$ that I paid for them, but wait for the M4's because they will be better than the M3's, I think they coming out this year but it's up to you if u want the M3's

I saw that you were using SBC connection, that's why they sound not perfect. If you use LDAC or a decent audio card they will sound alot better.

Just one question that I need an answer to. My old headphones (skullcandy crusher wireless) broke off in the hinges. Will these do that? If you tend to hover with the headphones over your head before putting them on and stretching both the cups. Greetings from Sweden.

Man why aren't you using the LDAC codec it's one of their best features, you lose a lot of audio quality with SBC, obviously the cable is even better

XM3 has a flat sound profile? Definitely no, the low end boost makes the sound muddy.

Hissing on the right ear when NC is turned on day 1. Pretty shitty.

Of course it sounds shit if you stick that aux cord in a normal phone jack. The amp and dac built into phones make anything worse.

I've used mine 8 hours(at least) a day for a year and a half I'm happy with em. I'm gonna need to replace the ear cups though but like I said at least 8 hours a day probably closer to 12 I've ridden these babies hard and dirty and even sweated on them like crazy in beatsaber.

nought them, didnt like them, returned them. keyless thing bugs me, its hard to change song and volume. sound quality isnt what i expect from sony either.
mellowman1001 9 days ago
I bought these - avoid like the plague. They're built out of cheap brittle plastic that creaks and pops endlessly, even just while walking. It's driving me mad and Sony are just trying to brush it under the carpet until the XM4s come out.

With ANC on and without playing media (or with very low volume), can you hear a kind of white noise ? (like a more or less far river)
alperos29 9 days ago
That is what the ANC is its giving you a sound that blocks out other sounds

GREAT VIDEO! This is AWESOME! But I've been hearing a lot about some firmware updates that have caused problems. This is making it hard for me to choose either these headphones or the QC 35ii. What do you think, Mark?

If you say these headphones have a "FLAT PROFILE with NO EXAGERATED AREA" means you are deaf. Or that this is a paid review. PERIOD

Very good, yes, but... microphone sounds bad, very muddy/muffled. No dual/share connection available. They get warm/hot, you will sweat. Same complaints you talk about.
Pedro Augusto Ferraz de Melo Vieira
Apart from the touch controls, which I hate, I love these headphones. I usually don't like headphones (they make me feel unconfortable) and only use them when I have to (I can't blast speakers at work for example) and I really like these ones. When mine dies I'll have to bite the bullet and get another one because I can't live without them anymore. I wished I could use them for online gaming on my xbox, they are so much more confortable than all my gaming headsets it's ridiculous. It acually is a problem, I keep buying gaming headsets looking for a confortable pair (I have 5 now) but deep down I know i'll never find something as good as this (closest I got was hyperx's cloud stinger; worse audio than my alphas but much lighter and more confortable)

@Jimme H wrong! some retailers sell them for $70 cheaper because they can afford to because they buy in bulk.this is common practice for many brand items. this has nothing to do with sales, if its a sale you cud get them cheaper than $70 off. do some research before you speak. he got scammed.

Paid $300AUD for mine, comes to $192 USD by todays conversion rate :-) Also have the MDR1000s which I payed a lot more for. While the ANC is improved, I feel the sound isolation was superior on the original MDR1000s presumably due to the tighter (and at times uncomfortable) headband clamping force. On the flip side the XM3s dont fall apart as quick as the MDR1000s did (which Sony refused to repair).

That's a pretty darn good deal. I bought mine when they released for nearly $500 CAD. Still worth every penny though.

This review was really spot on and answered questions that I did not get from elsewhere. For one, I thought they would make it possible to listen to music while someone else is watching TV in the same room. Now I know that they are not designed for that. The guy in the shop told me otherwise.

Do these fit small heads? I've searched several times for best headphones fo small heads. ALmost every article lists these as the best for small heads but no one addresses the issue in their review. It always looks like the men reviewing have them on the smallest adjustment so I can't imagine they will adjust any smaller for small women's heads. Yes, women buy headphones, too.

I have to disagree on the phone call microphone quality. I have not had a single person complaint about phone voice quality or clarity on the other side of the conversation. I have even asked if they can hear me well and clear or if my voice sounds funny or muffled and not a single person has complained. Ive used them for both phone and video calls with no issues. Maybe I got a good pair..

Hey Mark, one question! I found this headphone for 170 euros in Amazon and bought it. As I'm usually using both my phone and laptop for media and calls, I have a big problem not having multi device connection. Considering that I am not going to spend more than 200 euros ever for a headphone, should I accept this problem and keep it or there might be a better solution out there for me? (Have to say I tested Soundcore life q20, and that 50 euros headphone support multi device connection and I was happy with the quality it was giving me for 50euros, just never had the chance to test it's budget ANC)

Unbelievable that you can talk so much about these headphones without even mentioning how the bass level is. Is the bass heavy or decent or not good at all? You talk about a lot’s of thing’s but what’s really important is how the sound quality is and especially the bass??

Have you used these headphones on Zoom calls? I'm looking to buy a new pair of headphones and the in-built microphone with my current headphones (not the XM3's) pick up way too much noise during the call and the people on the other end of my call can hear a lot of the background noise. I wonder if these headphones cancel the background noise for the receiver of the call?

ANC without battery isn't a drawback. It's a feature that requires power, in every headset, that's what makes it "active". Otherwise, thank you for the informative review, looking forward to getting a pair!

The fact that they heat up the ears is so disappointed... A big turn off for me who lives in the south of France, where it's often very hot and when I exercice. Very disappointed for an item why such good quality.
markierer Month ago
I could sign all he said. But they have a too big delay for action games. Don’t buy them if you want to play games like Fortnite. For gaming I use a cheap pair of cabled Logitech headphones. Edit: Of course you can use them also cabled. That’s about bluetooth above

Darryl Carradine Jr.
the swiping features actually work amazingly well for me. Also if you enable bass boost you will be more than satisfied with the punchiness of the bass. In fact you'll be amazed. I've owned Beats and yeah they are good but not this good. Yeah the noisecancelling is pretty great but i'm more into how great the sound quality is.

Using noise cancellation makes one ear louder than the other, but when I switch to ambient it goes away. Help
