Sony WH-1000XM3

A FCC filing was lodged for the above and it looks like the new model is expected to arrive in Aug/Sep this year just like the 1000xm2. Anyone looking forward to upgrade or purchase from older models?

The WH-1000 MX3 headphones cost $519 at Somerset 313 if you bargain a bit.

Have to pay full price to reserve a set as of now. no stocks available.

tested the headphones for past couple of days....

- the call quality is still decent, can be further improved in terms of clarity...just need to turn up the volume but there is this "tunnel" or "echo" sound

- no on ear sensor, or only on bluetooth 4.2? not a deal breaker lah...but it would be better if it can connect to multiple devices instead of just one

- using good quality fast charger and type c cable, the charging time seems to slightly reduced...didnt test the sony cable as yet

- some reviews wrote got latency issue, so far nv encounter before?

- touch sensor controls on the right earcup works v well! better than other brands / models i tested before

- blocked out most of the noises when traveling between underground mrt stations, but not those high pitch / frequency type of track noises.....commuter chatter noises is almost negligible

- less than an hour after putting on, ears start to get a little bit hot and sweaty, it is not extremely nasty, but just dont like it...how come almost no online reviewers ever spoke about that?

- the silver ( or rather, it's just v light brown / champagne colour lah, why call it silver !? ) attracts finger prints and dirt marks very easily on the earcups, should have bought the black colour instead!

- saw these on another youtube channel....

1. They come with USB C charging cable and a 3mm standard headphone jack cable.
2. DSEE HX feature will not work if you pick an option for equalizer.
3. They make ear sweat in summer especially outdoors.
4. App will not work if you are connected with USB type C connector or headphone Jack. App only works with Bluetooth.
5. These have inbuit digital to analogue converter so you don't need an external DAC.
6. These have atmospheric pressure detection for flights at high altitude.
7. It uses your phone gps to detect if you are walking, in transport or running and changes the active noise cancelling. These level of noise cancelling/ambient noise can be configured inside the app.
8. Phone calls quality is not good as people on the other side will have difficulty hearing you sometimes. I occasionally have dis engage these headphones and talk via phone mic directly.

i have the 1000xm2 and just wondering, how do you answer a call and continue wearing the headphones? everytime i double tap on the right cup, the party on the other line barely hears me or instead hears the background noise instead.
