Sony WF-1000XM3

The notable asset of this pair of headphones is obviously the active noise reduction system. In fact, the brand has taken the technology of the excellent WH-1000XM3 headphones to adapt it to the WF-1000XM3. The result is naturally not up to the headset, but the headphones still claim a very good audio quality, which can easily be measured against the famous AirPods Pro from the competitor apple brand. Whether you are in transport or in the street, you can easily cut yourself off from all distractions without having to damage your eardrums by turning up the volume to the maximum. However, the “Quick Attention” mode, which is activated by touching the dedicated touch zone, will allow you to hear ambient noises or to chat with someone.

It’s no longer a surprise: Sony’s unique audio quality is still impressive. The sound from the headphones is balanced, and even exceeds its rival at Apple. If necessary, you can configure the equalizer according to your preferences on the Sony Headphones Connect application, available on iOS and Android. The latter also has adaptive sound control that will detect your activity to adapt to ambient noise. Note also that the WF-1000XM3 integrate Google Assistant natively: you will be able to make calls or chat with the assistant with your headsets firmly in place.

Regarding autonomy, the manufacturer announces a use of 6 hours with noise reduction activated, and 8 hours without. By adding the charging box, the autonomy can increase up to 32 hours of autonomy. We regret, on the other hand, the absence of wireless charging, but we will console ourselves with the fast charge via USB-C which will grant 90 minutes of additional listening in 10 minutes.
