" ...  * The sound quality easily beats Bose. ... Music sounds more full and there's a much better soundstage. ... If you're a serious audiophile and willing to put up with the compromises, this is easily the best sound you'll get from ANC headphones, and also the best ANC out there, but there are definitely tradeoffs.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I am surprised at how much I enjoy these headphones. ... My listening experience has dramatically improved. ... I have used them for audiobooks, music (Classical, Jazz, Classic Rock and Hip-Hop), and streaming shows (for which there is negligible lag between audio and visual). ... I find myself discovering nuances and details in music I am very intimate with. ... The sound is very balanced and somewhat neutral for a Sony headphone.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This is a bad product if you love music or enjoy it because it does not give you a great sound Quality. ... I been in the music business a while and I hear better with other headphones with a less price.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I love the touch pad to control volume, skip or let ambient noise in. ... Sound: when the equalizer in the companion app is set to my taste, this is one of the best sounding headphone I ever had. ... ANC: compared to Bose 35, this is way better. ... Sony seems to isolate more higher frequency and background noise but the difference is small. ... Overall what steered me to Sony is the music sound quality.  ...  "

" ...  To keep it short and straight to the point, they look, feel, and sound amazing as you can see in the video that I provided, but the issue I was having is that it keeps pausing my music from time to time (you can also see that issue occurring in the video).  ...  "
comment
" ...  The primary reason I got these headphones was to help ease my symptoms of autism, primarily the over-sensory stimulation of sounds. ... Even in my home office with relatively minimal noise, the sounds of fans, coil whine, mechanical clicking, etc from my computer and other electronics are highly grating on my senses.  ...  "

" ...  Noise canceling is ridiculous .  ...  "
comment
" ...  Noise cancelling: Noise cancelling is not noise proof. ... It does block out more sound than its predecessor however with noise cancelling I felt that the m2 cancelled more sound. ... Although with noise cancelling on, the m3 do a much better job. ... Although by itself it already cancels noise out exceptionally better. ... Now to clarify the reason the reason why noise cancelling headphones have a hard time cancelling voices. ... Despite this, these are the best noise cancelling headphones on the market right now. ... Now are they 4x better in noise cancelling? ... The wh1000xm3 is still built well, although you had a leather cup to create a better noise cancelling seal.  ...  "
