Bewertung zu Sony WH-1000XM3 (ANC).

If you want the best of the best in ANC headsets currently, you buy the Sony WH-1000XM3 hands down.

Well where do I begin.

When my last in-ear headsets broke (cable was the culprit as is usually the case with non-braided cables) I decided to not only future-proof myself with Bluetooth (since headphone jacks are becoming a rarity in phones) but also get Noise Cancelling to make my commutes more bearable and just generally enjoy my music / audiobooks more intensely by shutting out the real world to a greater extent than ever before ;)

I read probably every major review and costumer complaint on multiple different ANC headphones out there and ultimately decided to take a leap of faith and get the Sony WH-1000XM3 at 350.- CHF

I cross-tested the Sony myself against some other major players (like Bose QCII, Sennheiser, B&O, XM2 Sony and more) in different locations (Media Markt, Interdiscount, M-Electronics, Digitec Showrooms) and the only thing I could reliably say after all the in-shop testing was that Sony's ANC technology is CURRENTLY superior to all the others.

Comfort wise I rate the Sony on par with the Bose although now that I own the Sony and use them for extended periods of time I have to agree with other testers that they have a tendency to get a wee bit hot in the left ear cup somehow. It's not problematic, they're still super comfy but it is a thing so bear that in mind in case you NEVER want to take them off. Personally I have 0 issues with it and can just "air" my ears every couple hours to counteract this issue.

I used Flac samples of Dire Straits and Beatles + some oldschool Hip Hop to test the sound and I personally prefer Sony's soundscape to all the other contenders. I like the punchy bass and it rarely feels out of place or overbearing.

When I tested calling someone with the headphones I found out that older versions of the XM3 are just horrid at it. (Other person gets an echo of themselves and you're barely audible as a caller with the headset, just plain unusable) Bose's QCII won out hard during in-shop testing but now that I own the XM3 I can safely assure anyone that read about this issue that it has been solved in newer versions of the headset (I dunno if it's a software or hardware related issue, if you have the problem you can send your headset in for a replacement apparently).

Another issue people reported is that the headsets touch controls act up in cold weather which I personally haven't encountered as of yet (I tried everything, going from inside ~24 Celsius to sub 0 temperatures, staying outside for longer in cold temperatures, from train / bus to outside -- I never had any issues with the touch controls going rogue or just fritzing out on me)

So all in all I can really recommend the Sony WH-1000XM3 to anyone in the market for great sounding, comfortable and futureproof ANC headphones. You will not be disappointed by any of the features and once you start using them you won't want to put them down ever again. Huge thumbs up from me :)

Great review thanks a lot for that! Good to hear that the call quality has improved with the revision models or firmware update. I'll pick mine up very soon and can't wait to get my hands on them :)

"...charging does not work with my quick charger from OnePlus, only standard ones + usb C cable"
this is a oneplus side problem, they use a non-standard charging protocol (dash-charge) that can, in worse case scenario, damage other device. (the ac block and the red cable are special)
"quick-charge" from this device use standard usb charging protocol.
