Everyone has their own ways when it comes to celebrating the festive period. Some spend time with loved ones at home, others go on staycations, and there are those who travel long journeys—flights, ships, and trains. During the commute, one might prefer to be in a state of peace and tranquility. Thanks to the advent of technology, we are now officially living in the zeitgeist of massive technological advancement. A major by-product of that is the Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling headphones. These are the reasons why the addition to the 1000X family is perfect for your next trip, whenever and wherever.

Silence is indeed a bliss

Let all attention be on your music. How? The new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e works with Dual Noise Sensor technology so that noise can be captured and cancelled respectively. In addition to that, you will be able to experience more of the ambient sound around you because of the one feed-forward microphone and one feed-back microphone on the headphones’ surface. Therefore, whether you’re in a packed train or a flight filled with crying babies, the WF-1000XM3 can dramatically remove any unwanted sounds.

No, they are none. The Sony WF-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones are wireless. Truly wireless. Despite the size of the WF-1000XM3 buds, there is a Bluetooth chip developed for and inserted into the headphones. What does that mean? What does that do? Well—unlike conventional left-to-right relay transmission, both earbuds receive audio content at the same time. What you get is an extremely stable wireless connection especially with a new optimised antenna structure. Have you ever watched a film on the television with sound that doesn’t sync time-wise with what you see? These headphones are low in latency, Therefore, everything on screen precisely corresponds with what you hear.
