  • Sony WF-1000XM3 Bad Ear Fit/Design
    Reviewed by Drabb75 - 19 août 2020

    I bought these wireless earbuds because I already have a pair of wireless over-ear phones and wanted the same exceptional sound quality but with the flexibility to be mobile as well as work out, etc. I also own a pair of apple airpods and honestly the sound quality of the Sony earbuds blows Airpods out of the water (literally). However, what good is exceptional sound quality if the design of the earbud is uncomfortable and does not fit. Not to mention there are very few people who like the design of earbuds that require you change out the in-ear silicon pieces to get a good fit (which is never perfect nor comfortable). I wish Sony had designed the earbuds similar to the airpod with a flat earplug design vs the in-ear with silicon tips design. The airpod flat earplug design is almost universally comfortable no matter the size of the ear due to the design. I'm sure Sony can figure out a better way to ensure an exceptionally comfortable fit while providing the same awesome sound quality we come to expect from them. I unfortunately will be returning my WF-1000XM3 earbuds for the SOLE reason that they are VERY uncomfortable and do not stay in well (and that is after having tested each and every different size silicon tip that came in the box). I have very small ears and my Apple airpods fit perfectly and are super snug (even when I'm dancing or working out). My spouse has a very large ear canal and the Airpods still fit perfectly! Although we are SONY fans to the core as the sound quality of Sony products is UN-Matched, we cannot justify buying these earbuds at this price point with such a huge issue with comfort and fit. Sony PLEASE RE-DESIGN THESE to fit like regular airpods (Gen2) while maintaining noise cancelling functionality. There has got to be a way to accomplish this. Also the charging case for these is almost obnoxiously large. As a women who tends to prefer a minimalist existence, I carry a small wristlet with only essentials but this case is just not small or discrete enough to fit in it. My airpods case is perfect (about the size of a dental floss container). I could literally fit the airpods case inside the Sony case.

  • Fantastic Wireless Noise Cancelling Headset
    Reviewed by Jonnyb320 - 30 juillet 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sony has managed to raise the bar to another level. These noise cancelling wireless head phones are just amazing. They come in a small compact box, that the main product slides out of. Straight away there’s the instructions to set up the headphones, in an easy to follow step by step guide as you unpack the product. The headphones themselves are unbelievably small, and fit securely in the case. The case is also a battery pack as you would expect with headphones such as these. The case feels very high quality, and very rugged, the case also has a charging light on the front and has a USB-C socket on the bottom. I really like this feature, as most of my other tech kit is USB-C so it means I don’t have to carry a large number of cables around. Sony provide an app to help with connecting these to your phone, tablet or whatever else you want to use them with. Sony also provide another app to use the headphones. To be honest I didn’t use either. They were straight forward to set up and use as you would normally do with headphones. There’s a quick set up guide for those that struggle. In use there’s loads of great features. They fit snugly into the ear, and there’s a selection of buds in the box for different size ears. The noise cancelling on these is just amazing, they lack the attenuation effect of decent over the ear cans, but this is made up to an extent with the noise cancelling. You are, however, getting much lighter and slicker in ear headphones. You can easily switch between noise cancelling and ambient sound with a tap of the left bud, and you can make phone calls with 2 taps of the right bud. One of the features I love is if you remove a bud to talk to someone, your music stops and restarts when you replace the bud. I found clarity of voice calls to be exceptional, and the noise cancelling to be way above what I have come to expect from wireless buds. Overall I have found these headphones to be exceptional. I have tried wireless buds from two other manufacturers and these from Sony are just streets ahead of their competition. Yes there are comprises. These will not satisfy the ultimate audiophile, who wants total noise suppression and ultimate base and clarity. But if thats what you want then the larger Sony WH-1000XM3s would be more for you. These are a fantastic wireless bud headset, certainly the best that I have come across.

  • Amazing sound quality, microphones sub-par
    Reviewed by Audiophilic - 18 septembre 2020

    PROs: Great price point I love these for listening! The sound quality when paired to my iPhone or Mac is phenomenal! The noise-cancelling helps me focus on the task in front of me with ease. The Sony Headphones app is very useful and makes the headphones very configurable. The plenitude of ear tips makes them very comfortable. They have a small profile. CONs: Making calls is tolerable, despite the sub-par microphone quality. These would be absolutely wonderful, and I would have left a glowing 5-star review if these paired well with a PC. (which they don't). FULL REVIEW: I have had these for about a month and have been very, very pleased with them, especially for the price. I'm a convicted audiophile, and these earphones have fulfilled that addiction with aplomb. The sound quality is amazing with crisp treble, full, thumpy bass, and clear midrange, regardless of volume. Sony's app is excellent and allows a surprising number of sound quality, noise-cancelling, and touch control configuration adjustments. The multitude of ear tip sizes/materials ensured a comfortable fit for my sensitive ears. The noise cancelling is excellent and blocks almost all ambient noises. These protrude very little and are almost completely flush with the outside of my ears. These check off all my boxes except for two: 1) Microphone sound quality during calls and 2) PC connection. First, the microphones are excellent at monitoring ambient noise for cancelling purposes, but when in a call, I've been told that I sound echoey. Second, the earphones have a very poor connection with my Windows PC. The PC treats them like a headset and transmits sound signals with a crackly, turntable-like quality. This sound quality also applies to the microphone signal transmitted to the PC. I use headphones to record training videos regularly, and my recorded voice sounds tinny and crackly in the recording. I have done much research and several driver updates, but neither Sony nor Microsoft have built drivers or firmware updates that allow a high-fidelity connection to these earphones. The connection with my iPhone and Mac are flawless. I will hope that Sony fine-tunes their software/firmware for PCs. IN SUMMARY: Great price! Fantastic sound! Useful app! Comfy! Low-profile! Microphone could use some improvement PCs yield poor sound quality These are an amazing pair of earphones, and Sony could be justified in charging a much higher price if this solvable problem were addressed.

  • Great headphones for working out long battery life
    Verified BuyerReviewed by StaceyQ - 22 mai 2021

    My second pair Has the first pair broke left a review on insurance in which I said things break why wouldn’t you have insurance. This is why you have insurance. These are the best headphones I have and I have quite a few pears these headphones last eight or more hours they are comfortable they come with lots of different sizes when the battery is low it only takes 10 minutes to charge it back to full so if you’re going to buy a pair of headphones to exercise in these, You do not have to worry about them falling out, I’ve been on the treadmill, been hiking & never had to worry about them falling out.

  • A for comfort and sound quality
    Reviewed by Vecheverry - 3 juillet 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have worn these at two healthcare settings where I wanted to limit having to reach or touch my phone. The pods look like they may be too big at first glance, but once the correct size silicone ear cushion, they do not move and stay comfortably in place. The noise cancellation is superb and the sound quality is amazing. The volume goes up high if that's what you're into while maintaining perfect clarity of sound. The charging case is conveniently sized, can easily fit in my pocket or purse without taking up excessive space. The battery life is impressive as well, with me not having to worry about charging with all day use until I get home I have tried three other competitor brands and I can say whole heartedly these are my top pick!
