    Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones feature some of the best audio performance we've heard paired from a pair that also boasts excellent noise cancellation. Read more

    • Excellent audio performance with superb bass depth and high-frequency clarity. High-quality noise cancellation. App includes adjustable EQ and ANC controls. Plush, comfortable fit.
    • Expensive. ANC affects sound signature slightly. Cable lacks inline remote.

    Had these headphones for a few weeks now and so far they've been really impressive. Can't imagine not having them before. I look better than Bose I find the quality of the noise cancelling to be fast superior. And one of the major benefits for me is the 10-minute rapid charge with 5 hours playback. Read more
