Click To Read Reviews


Build Aspect

The Sony WH-1000XM3 are a stylish, premium looking pair of wireless headphones. The headphones have an impressive build quality and seem very durable and attractive to look at. The overall comfort levels are excellent and these should not cause any considerable fatigue over long duration of usage. Awesomesauce battery life of 38 hours with the ANC turned off and 30 hours with ANC turned on mean that the earphones should last many days or even weeks between recharges. Available in black and silver colors.

Performance Aspect

This particular pair of wireless headphones offer stunning audio capabilities and are impressive overall performers. First and foremost they have lots of bass, which is not boomy but is in fact rich and full of depth. Further the mid range is smooth and neutral and to top it off the treble is clean, airy. The sound modulation and dynamics are perfectly balanced and as a result listening to them is an occasion every single time. Active Noise Cancellation works really well and does a magical job at cancelling out ambient noises. To reiterate Sony WH-1000XM3 wireless Bluetooth headphones offer pristine audio quality, ANC capability, durable and premium finish and are one of the best wireless headphones under ₹ 20000 in India. Additionally it should be noted that the newer Sony 1000XM4 Bluetooth headphones are really good too but a lot more pricier as well.
