Escape the sounds of the city with industry-leading noise cancellation2. The noise-canceling technology in the WH-1000XM3 headphones is our most advanced ever with close-fitting ear pads and our HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1.
With our new HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1, noise-canceling power is greatly enhanced. Having a dedicated NC processor also ensures the reproduction of your music is never compromised due to processor performance.
Unique Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing delivers optimal sound at high altitude, so you can enjoy noise canceling at its best when you fly.3
Unique Personal Optimizing analyzes the sonic characteristics caused by head size, glasses, and hair, then optimizes sound to you.
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH® wireless audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
A built-in amplifier integrated in HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1 realizes the best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion for portable devices, and delivers exceptional sound quality. Powerful 1.57 " drivers, with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.
Adaptive Sound Control automatically detects your activity such as traveling, walking, and waiting, then adjusts ambient sound settings to you.
