Sound quality wise, wf-1000xm3 is probably the best so far.

The biggest selling point has to be the ANC. If you don't care for it. I would not think its worth to pay such a premium.

I don't think you can compared this to WM-1000XM3. It can block out quite a bit of noise though.

Personally I find this is more comfortable than WM1000XM3. I think you can't use Wf1000xm3 on aircraft system as there is no cable hence not really possible unless u use ur own ipad or computer. For me, i will still use my custom inear monitor. Unless you are a frequent traveller (travel at least 10 times a year), may not be worth buying WM1000XM3.

Received my Korean set yesterday. Wanted to cancel the order when information about local set at discounted price was available but the seller shipped the order just when I decided to cancel. Tested it out at the gym this morning on my iPhone XR. No connection drop issue compared to the previous Sony I had, the notorious WF-1000X. No noticeable sync issue on video. Noise cancelling is good. The background gym music and people working out at the machines are greatly dampened. Once music start playing, canít really hear them anymore. Mic quality is mediocre. Wonít recommend this for heavy phone user. Fit wise is alright, you will feel is there kind of feeling.

It depends on which frequencies an earphone was setup to block. The link below illustrates how effective a few ANC earphones work. My comparison and conclusion with the QC20 in a noisy environment was that the Sony tends to do better with people talking while the QC20 does very well with engine noise. Even the QC20 does not block all engine noise in flights. However, I am unable to reconcile what the charts suggest with the theoretical frequency of people talking.

Glad to see people using it at gym.

Just placed pre-order with Stereo at Qoo10. After 10% shop discount, $30 cart discount, the price is down to $284.10. Paid using q-coin which has 5~6% discount. So nett about $269. Haven't includes credit card rebates for q-Coin topup.

I think it is a very good deal. Thanks to bros here, i learnt how to use Qoo10 haha.
civicguy and Christyles like this.

If only Stereo ran that promo earlier. LOL. Only slightly more than what I paid for my Korean set.
