Personalised, Adaptive Noise Cancellation
With a dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1, noise
cancelling power is enhanced. It lets you fully immerse yourself in
your music, without the distraction of external ambient noise. It
adapts to your own personal preference and responds to what you're
doing. Smart Listening with Adaptive Sound Control detects your
activity such as travelling, walking or waiting, and adjusts
ambient sound settings accordingly (Sony Headphones Connect App
download required). With Personal NC Optimizer, characteristics
like head size, glasses and hair are analysed for optimal sound
delivery. It even counteracts atmospheric pressure at high altitude
for the best sound on a long flight. Driven by Sony's Sense Engine
tech you can adjust the ambient sound at a touch. The handy Quick
Attention feature lets you decrease music volume instantly by
placing your hand over the housing for a quick chat, without having
to stop the music.
High-Resolution Audio support means your music is heard at the same
studio quality that was intended by the engineer. These headphones
include a powerful 40mm driver with liquid crystal polymer for
handling those heavy beats, and have a frequency range of 4Hz to
40kHz. DSEE HX technology upscales compressed non Hi-Res music
files to nearly High Resolution Audio quality too, so whatever
you're listening to sounds as good as possible.
High Quality Wireless Listening with LDAC
Get rid of the cable clutter with Bluetooth wireless listening.
LDAC technology transmits approximately three times the amount of
data as normal Bluetooth for a heightened listening experience, and
seamlessly handles High Resolution Audio over a wireless
connection. NFC offers simple one-touch connection. The
rechargeable battery allows you to listen wirelessly for up to 30
hours with noise cancelling on, or up to 38 hours without it.
Smooth Touch Control
The ear cups are touch sensitive so you can control playback,
adjust volume and take calls with a simple tap of the headphones.
Just double tap for hands-free calls.
Dual Voice Assistant Compatibility
Combine high-quality sound with the simplicity of voice control.
The WH-1000XM3 works with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa
(may depend on firmware update, available via the Headphones
Connect App). Play music, hear the news, control compatible smart
home devices, get answers to questions, and more, just by talking
to your headphones.
Sony Headphones Connect App
With this app (iOS & Android) you can fine tune the sound to
your preference using an equalizer, or by choosing from a range of
presets, and adjust noise cancellation preferences. All from the
convenience of your smart device
