    If there’s one way to beat the competition, it’s on quality, but Sony goes above and beyond with the WH-1000XM3, as these things are just so damned good. The Sony WH-1000XM3 has it all, and while last year’s XM2 were fantastic , these are even better. Read more

    I spent most of last year investigating the world of in-ear sports earphones. I haven’t had many to look at this year, so I thought it time to look at the other side of the headphone range with some noise-cancelling over the ear cans from Sony – and why start at the bottom of the range when their...

    In comparison to the Bose QC15 headphones, the Sony M3 clearly gives a far better, more wide-band, noise cancelling effect. This is most noticeable with voices. The audio quality far exceeds the QC15 with accentuated bass. They sound great and are very comfortable. Read more

    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
