When you close your eyes and place the ear cups on your head, the ambient noises are gone and it\u2019s like everyone disappeared. The WH1000XM2 was already excellent with noise cancelling, and the Sony WH1000XM3 easily outclasses them, including the Cowin E7. With its proprietary processor, the QN1, you\u2019re getting even better sound quality with your choice of sounds, far exceeding the previous model.\r\nDesign\r\nAudio performance wasn\u2019t the only boost the Sony WH-1000XM3 Bluetooth Headphones got; build quality has also seen a big improvement\u2014far superior than the Mpow 059. The MVP here are the ear cushions. Soft pressure-relieving earpads with larger and deeper ergonomic ear space, combined with a lightweight design allow comfort to be felt for several hours. However, they can get rather warm after a few hours.\r\n\r\nThe right earcup can activate your voice assistant\u2014Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant\u2014so long as you\u2019ve connected it to the Sony Headphones Connect App. These wireless headphones are also open to USB-C charging.\r\nValue\r\nSony\u2019s WH-1000XM3 Noise Cancelling Headphones are packed with great features people look for in premium headphones, and were then improved upon. Compared to the last model, every inch of the headphones are better: sound quality, noise cancellation, and build design. That alone blows the Panasonic RP-HT161-K out of the water.\r\n\r\nAt first glance, $278 may sound like a lot, but consider its original price of $350, and the fact that this is Sony. If you go off of brand recognition alone, you\u2019ll know you\u2019re getting a high quality product.\r\nSony WH-1000XM3 Review Wrap Up\r\nSony has always favored quality, and the WH-1000XM3 represents that beautifully.
