Bad product, Bad service, Zero Star!
The firmware update 1.3.0 forever abort itself. Call the support centre, just tell me to initialise. Reset, Initalise, delete the app, reinstall , never work. One of the technical staff ( heavy Indian accent ) tell me to wait and disconnect. Ask for return , he told me to wait for another 24 hours. I know AirPods is bad but I truly regret to buy this.
Iphone user, keep away with this product!

Near perfect true wireless earbuds with fantastic sound and ANC
Having previously owned a pair of BeatsX and Plantronics Backbeat GO410, I was looking to move to a true-wireless headset without a neck band, which would always get caught on my shirt collar. I wanted top-notch sound, ANC, and decent battery life, primarily for daily train commute and office work. Until the 1000xm3 arrived, this didn't seem possible in one package.
- Surprisingly comfortable, especially with Comply Foam tips. Can't seem to make them fall out either.
- Best sound I have had on a pair of bluetooth ear buds. Easily better...
Near perfect in ear headphones
As an owner of the Sony WH-1000xm2 and WH-1000xm3 expectations of the WF-1000xm3 were high. They do not disappoint! They are small, portable, sound good and have active noise cancelling. When comparing these to the over ear models in the WH-1000x range they hold their own. Not as good but not far off. The noise cancelling of Sony's over ear models are better but they are also much larger. The benefit of having smaller active noise cancellation headphones is that you have more luggage space. A good compromise between performance and functionalit...y. On a side note as these headphones are Bluetooth you will need a Bluetooth transmitter to use these headphones with airline entertainment systems. Sony's mobile app allows for users to tailor headphone settings not only from a noise reproduction perspective but also functionality. While not perfect they do come close. And negatives ? Well for the price you would expect that have some sort of water resistance. They could also have some ear support for people who use headphones while running. Overall impressive headphones. Good enough that it makes you question if over ear WH's are still required.

Great Sound and Fit
I have had these new earphones for about a week now. I have tried numerous others including Beo E8, Bose Sound Sport and the Bose quiet control QC30. These new WF-1000XM3 have a great fit which is something I have had problems with in the past. The Bose QC30 have provided the best fit altogether but they aren't completely wireless like the other earphones listed.
Connecting to my iPhone and iPad has been great and one feature I have found that all the others have failed at is changing the connection between devices. After the earphones hav...e been set up on the iphone and ipad, if I want to change the connected device, all i have to do is select the earphones in the Bluetooth device list and it changes. With the other earphones, I have to turn the Bluetooth off the phone and turn the earphones off and on again and cross my fingers and hope they pick up the new device. Occasionally I have had to reset the Bluetooth connection to get them connecting again. Noise Cancelling works pretty well but is not the same level of impact as the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones but they are over ear headphones... having said that, the noise cancelling is still effective and definitely worth having as I use them a lot on flights. There is no volume control on the earphones themselves but I dont have a problem with that as the iphone/ipad is normally within reach and I keep forgetting how many taps on which ear does something.... I would rate these new earphones as the best sounding, fitting and overall performance compared to the others listed here. I found the best price online at around $314 whereas most of the retail outlets are charging $399
Purchased in August 2019 for $314.00.
