Lose yourself in silence

More power = even less noise
With our new HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1, noise-canceling power is greatly enhanced. Having a dedicated NC processor also ensures the reproduction of your music is never compromised due to processor performance.
Block out more
Most noise-canceling headphones are designed to block out vehicle noise when traveling. The WH-1000XM3 headphones are no exception, but are also highly effective at blocking out daily noise like voices and the background sounds you might hear walking through a city.
Noise canceling made to fly
Unique Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing delivers optimal sound at high altitude.
Wireless freedom, Great Sound in silence
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH® wireless audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
Sound you can believe in
A built-in amplifier integrated in HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1 realizes the best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion for portable devices and delivers exceptional sound quality. Powerful 1.57" drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.
Smart listening by SENSE ENGINE – automatically adjusts to your situation
See how Adaptive Sound Control automatically detects your activity such as traveling, walking, and waiting, then adjusts ambient sound settings to you. And with Quick Attention, you can communicate without removing your headphones — simply place your hand over the housing to turn the volume down for instant conversation.
