Lose yourself in silence
Escape the sounds of the city with noise cancellation. The noise-cancelling technology in the WH-1000XM3 headphones is our most advanced ever with close-fitting ear pads and our HD noise-cancelling processor QN1.
More power = even less noise
With our new HD Noise-cancelling processor QN1, noise-cancelling power is greatly enhanced. Having a dedicated NC processor also ensures the reproduction of your music is never compromised due to processor performance.
Block out more
Most noise-cancelling headphones are designed to block out vehicle noise when traveling. The WH-1000XM3 headphones are no exception, but are also highly effective at blocking out daily noise like voices and the background sounds you might hear walking through a city.
Noise cancellation personalized
Unique personal optimizing analyzes the sonic characteristics caused by head size, glasses, and hair, then optimizes sound to you.
Wireless freedom, great sound in silence
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional bluetooth wireless audio, allowing you to enjoy high-resolution audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
Sound you can believe in
A built-in amplifier integrated in HD noise-cancelling processor QN1 realizes the best signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion for portable devices and delivers exceptional sound quality. Powerful 1.57 inch drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.
