What Apple mouses and Braun shavers share

Sony WH-1000XM3 everything about that product is awesome, except that I can't use it while charging.


Sony wf-1000xm3 are the greatest true wireless headphones for noise cancelling and amazing sound quality. The app that pairs with it is very nice too. I have found a couple bugs with them, but they are very easy to fix

Sony WF-1000XM3 review: A top-notch true wireless headphone with active noise cancellation

If you're going pay this much for true wireless headphones, this is how they should sound. The Beats Powerbeats Pro have slightly bigger bass, but I thought these Sonys have more refined sound and are more articulate overall. You can tweak the sound settings in the companion app, but like with the WH-1000XM3, I didn't think playing around with the EQ offered any improvements in the sound quality (I ultimately ended up leaving it in the "flat" setting)

Ask HN: Best Noise Canceling Headphones

Sony WH-1000XM3: I've used several ANC headphones before. None of those come close to this. Sound quality is extremely good too. Good battery life. A 15 minutes charge gives me 5 hours of playback.

On the negatives: A bit heavier than Bose headphones but not by much. The "touch control" is...


If your mom isn't crazy about a flat response, I have the Sony wf-1000xm3 and love em to death for fun listening. I've heard the wf-700 Is similar in sound and they are about 80 bucks

I have the Sony WF-1000XM3s, they sound really good but they are not really comfortable for long sessions so I don't really recommend it. Just wanted to let you know.

Poor Man’s Bose – Open Office and on the Go Noise Control

For the record, many people think that Sony’s new WH-1000XM3 have better ANC than Bose. Bose hasn’t been the clear leader in at least a few years.


Sony’s latest true wireless earbuds are its best AirPods rival yet

But the M3s easily best the AirPods, Jabras, and Samsung Galaxy Buds of the world. For me, they’re neck and neck with the Powerbeats Pro as some of my favorite-sounding wireless earbuds yet. And the blissful noise cancellation definitely wins Sony some points over the competition
