Can I know which seller or listing? I found one and after coupon that ends up with $389 but I think itís not local set (and hence no warranty).

I saw the $389 one too but I was wondering if the voice assistant would be in chinese (apparently theres an issue where language cannot be changed), and the 1000XM2 reviews from the same seller say that the VA is in chinese. do you guys think the M3 will be in english?

Thanks! Manage to get it for S$424.10. They do not have black colour in Qoo10 (but actually they do, I've contacted via their live chat) but you can still get it, just contact their live chat for details.

I decided to play safe and pay $55.10 more for the local Sony warranty. If need send back to them (Hong Kong) I think it is very troublesome. Granted most of my electronics bought from Amazon is not spoilt yet and the warranty length of the headphones is only 1 year, still I think the bit of price premium is quite decent with the Qoo10 discounts for now..

Can anyhow hear the hissing noise on the left when NC on? I can feel the ear pressure after listening for 2 hours, first time using NC headphone.

Sony replaced my set recently. It was just about 2 months old. The tickering sound on the right cup was unbearable to the point of little appreciation when I'm in public transport.

So far replacement set fixed the issue. Only time can tell...

Hopefully new earpads can make the xm3 less of a earmuff for cold weather

Should be soon lah. Haha.

Read good reviews about them. Most experienced better comfort especially those with big ears.

They also do frequencies testing and they have charts comparing stock versus their different ear pads.

I never use it for gym, but I would think in ears would be more suitable for gym usage.

In addition, the 1000xm3 can be used as earmuffs in winter because they trap heat really well, so using in gym would probably cause your ears to become red hot
