I’ve worn the 1000XM3s on multiple occasions around town, in the metro and even at home where a constriction site next door is constantly using drill and hammers, and have to say, at many instances, not even my Quiet Comforts were able isolate the sound like Sony’s XM3s. Sony wins the audio performance war this time as well, it’s simply impressive.

If you’re in the market for a solid set of over-ear headphones for your commute and are willing to part with the cold-hard cash, the Sony WH-1000X M3s are likely our pick for the best noise-cancelling headphones you can buy right now.

With super soft faux leather on all the bits that touch your head, they're comfortable enough to wear for long periods, if you're on a long-haul flight, for example. But for those trips and others, it's the noise cancelling capabilities that really sell these headphones, setting a new bar for other headphone manufacturers to strive for. If you're a regular air traveler or want to turn down the other passengers on public transport, then the WH-1000MX3 headphones make an ideal traveling companion.

The peak wireless experience

from BGR

The Sony WH-1000XM3 is a definite step-up over its predecessor, and I’m willing to go on record and say that it’s the best noise-cancelling headset available today. It’s also the most technologically advanced wireless headset around and takes sound quality to a new level for the Japanese company.

Amazing headphones

from Pickr

If there’s one way to beat the competition, it’s on quality, but Sony goes above and beyond with the WH-1000XM3, as these things are just so damned good. The Sony WH-1000XM3 has it all, and while last year’s XM2 were fantastic, these are even better.
