Updated: Jan 17, 2021
Presently that the Sony WH-1000XM4 has been released to the market, deal hunters will certainly investigate whether the WH-1000XM3 is a comparable option with other competitive options. Having known that until the arrival of the most recent in Sony's line of top-end ANC headsets, the WH-1000XM3 was the best noise-canceling earphones, it's certainly a commendable competitor to its rivals.
BUILD & COMFORT
From the outlook, the built of the XM3s is like that of the XM2s, yet the distinctions are for the most part are positive ones. Our lone minor objection is that the move from metal to plastic in the headband makes the new pair look somewhat less premium than the active model.
In any case, that likewise adds to a general weight saving of 20g over a year ago's pair. Joined with another, thicker, gentler pad, it feels like there's practically no weight laying on the top of your head. With more extensive earpads that encompass the ear, these are perhaps the most agreeable pairs of on-ears we've tried.
Then, the XM3s look a bit weird as well, on account of the headband leaving to a lesser of a gap to your head. It's a straighter, less balloon-like appearance.

That is essentially all that you might look for in an active noise canceling earphone, as the tech can indeed do a limited amount of a lot. This is among the best ANC we've seen to date.
For the Sony WH-1000XM3, the sound is very acceptable, supported by the fact that they focus on a very user-friendly sound quality naturally. Even though the outline it produces is wavy for unknown reasons, don't interpret that as meaning that it has an issue with the general response: it's simply that pink noise as a testing signal is inherently untidy. It could likewise have something to do with the optimizer settings for the test head, which gives off an impression of being a work in progress already. The primary takeaway here is that the earphones focus on a consumer sound, with a highlighted bass, a little knock in the mids, and a top at about 10kHz
