Sony is one of the best companies out there that makes headphones with an active noise-canceling feature, and now it has added the new Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds to its collection. The company refreshed the looks of the two-year-old WF-1000X, improved NC, and longer battery life.
The Sony WF-1000XM3 has a slick design with the buds, some room for the bass, and a capacitive surface that can be set up to do various tasks with different gestures, including the popular finger/hand over the earphone to allow ambient sound through when someone is talking to you.
Sony claims the new earbuds connect app will offer a feature called Adaptive Sound Control that detects what you are doing and enhances important noises like a car honking while you are on the steel or a train announcement while waiting at the platform.
Looking at the specs, Sony has put the QN1e HD NC processor in each bud – the exact one found in the WH-1000XM3 wireless headphones. The Sony WF-1000XM3 also supports Bluetooth 5.0 with an effective range of about 10 meters. One earbud weighs less than 9 grams with the stylish case adding extra 77 grams.
The WF-1000XM3 packs a battery and Sony says charging the earbuds take approximately 1.5 hours, while continuous music playback could go on for 6 hours with the NC and or 8 hours if you turn it off.

The Sony WF-1000XM3 price is £220 in the United Kingdom, €250 across Europe, and $230 in the United States of America. The earbuds will go on sale in the month of August this year.
