What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
  • I like the compact carrying case and how the headphones fold-up in it. Nice.
  • Compact, solidly built, has a built-in divider for the cords, has both a handle strap and an outer mesh slip pocket.
  • They are comfortable and fold up very compact into the case that they come with.
  • They're also very compact and light compared to other competitors noise cancelling headphones I've tried.
  • They are also very light weight. Ear cups are nice and soft. Noise canceling is fantastic just walking around a busy city.
Sony WH-1000XM2 Premium Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
  • Not heavy at all, for being a full size over ear.
  • The metal bar and size adjuster are very solid but do not make the headphones too heavy.
  • The materials used are pretty comfy and they fold into a smaller size for travel.
  • They're easily adjustable for head size and fold flat to lay on your neck when not in use.
  • The headphones themselves are a bit on the heavy size, but even after a few prolonged listening sessions the weight didn't bother me that much.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
  • The app was very cool with tons of customization possible. NFC pairing is very quick and painless pairing.
  • Nice quality sound, excellent connection, and even the microphones had a pretty good quality for phone calls.
  • The bass is pronounced but not overbearing and the mids and highs are crisp and clear.
  • The headphones sound great. Noise cancelling is superb. They are comfy. I use them as a phone headset a lot.
  • The function touch pad is sensitive and easy to unintentionally do something like skip the track when adjusting the headset on your ears. It's annoying when it happens.
Sony WH-1000XM2 Premium Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
  • These Headphones are unbelievably good. I use them mostly for bluetooth on my TV when everyone is asleep. The noice canceling feature is unreal.
  • Sound for music with bluetooth on my phone sounds amazing.
  • Sore and for that reason I returned them. This could just be a personal problem which is why I rated them 4 stars. The Bluetooth distance is really good and sound quality is pretty good as well.
  • Sound quality is great and the technology that Sony uses to change the range of noise control depending on whether you're walking, sitting, or commuting is amazing.
  • The NFC function ia nice so you just get it close enough and the earphones automatically connect.

What customers say about "Power"
Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
  • These headphones have excellent battery life, amazing noise-canceling and I'd highly recommend them, if my pair hadn't broken.
  • The battery life on these is also amazing! And USB-C definitely takes that to the next level with the quick charge feature.
  • These are my first set of noise cancelling headphones and I'm very impressed. The battery life is phenomenal. The noise cancelling is incredible.
  • Battery life is as advertised. Long lasting and easy to recharge. Usb C is a great choice when trying to plug in in the dark.
  • Battery life isn't anywhere near the 30 hours advertised. Changing the volume is hard, a lot of the time you skip tracks instead of adjusting volume.
Sony WH-1000XM2 Premium Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
  • The noise canceling feature is great on airplanes, and the battery life let's me fly long hours in comfort and quiet.
  • Long battery life and great sound. They also are great at cancelling noise.
  • These headphones are incredibly comfortable and have a very long battery life.
  • Also, the battery life is very good so I’m very happy.
  • These headphones have an outstanding battery life. I flew half way around the world listening to music the whole time. I arrived with half the battery left.
