Dual Noise Sensor Technology

Dual microphones – one feed-forward and one feed-back – on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sounds of your surroundings, whether it’s in-flight noise, city traffic or office chatter.

HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e

Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e gets to work. It not only cancels significantly more noise across almost all frequencies ­but also uses less power.

Earbuds stay snug and secure

A high-friction rubber surface keeps the noise cancelling earbuds snug and secure in your ear so they won’t slip out unexpectedly.

24-hour battery life icon

Up to 24 hours of listening

On a full charge, the headphones offer 6 hours of power and the handy charging case provides a further 3x charges to keep you going throughout the day. That’s up to 24 hours of noise-free listening. With noise cancelling off, it’s even longer – 8 hours of power on a full charge, with a further 3x charges from the charging case, for up to 32 hours of play time.

10-min quick charge/90-min play icon.

Quick charging when you need it

Sometimes you need music, fast. So if your headphones are running low on power, a 10-minute quick charge in the charging case gives you up to 90 minutes of play time.

Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do

The Sony | Headphones Connect app offers Adaptive Sound Control, a smart function that automatically detects what you’re up to – for example, travelling, walking, or waiting – then adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation. You can also customise the settings to your preferences.

Automatic pause and play

A proximity sensor in each earbud can detect whether you’re wearing one or both and adapts playback accordingly. Take out one earbud and the music automatically pauses on both sides. Put the earbud back in and the music automatically resumes playing.

Be in control of your listening

With the Sony | Headphones Connect app, Ambient Sound Control lets you adjust the volume of background sound and gives you the option to allow voices alone to be heard. Meanwhile the Equalizer lets you customise sound levels to suit your music.

Clearer hands-free calling

Conversation flows freely with easy, hands-free calling. The WF-1000XM3 headphones deliver clearer voice quality and you can take calls using either, or both, of the earbuds. This allows you to alternate their recharging or hear calls clearly in noisy environments.
