Watch out, AirPods: Sony’s Top Noise Cancelling Tech Comes To WF-1000XM3 Earbuds

Bearing the esteemed 1000X mark the WH-1000XM3 headphones shot into stardom, Sony’s WF-1000XM3 (SGD 349/USD230) is the next in the lineage of top-tier noise-cancelling earphones. In a true-wireless in-ear earbud form-factor, the WF-1000XM3 centre in on a completely new product category.

Combining the massive success achieved by the WH-1000XM3 – which surpassed industry leader Bose’s standards by most publications’ reckoning – together with the growing appeal of AirPods-styled true-wireless earbud form factor, we get the WF-1000XM3. 

It builds on the technology utilised on its predecessor, the WF-1000X. With a more efficient follow-up to the QN1 processor on the stellar WH-1000XM3 that we’ve all raved about, the QN1e processor on the WF-1000XM3 might be the means to a follow-up hit.

Users can expect a stronger Bluetooth connection with a revamped antenna configuration, along with stellar battery life – 6 hours with ANC on, with a total of 24 hours with the included charging case. Without ANC, the WF-1000XM3 is claimed to deliver 8 hours/36 hours of performance.

The earbuds will also have key user-oriented features like automatic pause when one side is removed, along with a similar Quick Attention feature that the WH-1000XM3 implemented so well.

It also utilises Dual Noise Sensor Technology, along with Adaptive Sound Control to deliver optimised, powerful noise cancellation on the earbuds. The WF-1000XM3 earbuds will also deliver customisable touch controls, along with support for voice assistants. 

It will hit Singapore’s short from mid-July 2019 onwards with an RRP of SGD 349
