But the new Sony WH-1000XM3 is also smart; you can adjust the noise cancelling feature to let in certain sounds when you need to hear them; ambient noise when you’re walking on a busy street for example, or voices when you’re waiting for a flight call. Additional microphones also assist in isolating sound while talking on the phone, so you notice better call quality.


Sony’s proprietary HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 gives you so many options when it comes to how you want to use your headphones. If you fly often, you’ll fall in love with the smart technology designed to make air travel better. Automatic, smart personal and atmospheric pressure optimizing amazingly adjusts to your individual listening style and your altitude.

Need to ask your seat-mate a question or speak with a flight attendant? It’s easy to communicate without taking your headphones off. Place your hand over the right ear cup to turn the volume down and deactivate noise canceling for instant conversation, thanks to the Quick Attention feature.

For answers to all your questions, ask Google Assistant! With the push of a button, the WH-1000XM3 can connect with the Google Assistant app on your smartphone. Input a voice command and unleash the power and versatility of voice assistance, and smart device voice activation, right from your Sony headphones.

  1. I had a set of BOSE QC25’s until the right speaker ceased working. From what I read on the BOSE website this is a very common problem. BOSE is a very difficult company to deal with and will no longer return my e-mails. Two Questions….will the new Sony WA-1000XM3 be able to plug into an aircraft’s entertainment system and do you have a problem with the right speaker since the headphones fold up much like the BOSE headphones. I look forward to your reply.

  2. This is the critical point for me. If it doesn’t work as I want, I will take them back, as I did with the Sennheiser’s. I had a pair of them about 8-10 years back (taken from me just a few months ago) that had the feature you mention where you press one button and the music pauses/silences and the ambient sound mics feed the ambient noise through. The problem was my 8 year old ones also allowed you to adjust the volume of the ambient noise. The new $500 ones did not.

    If I use your “Quick Attention feature” will it let me adjust the volume of the incoming ambient noise while the music/whatever is silent? Or does it just let it through at a normal (ie: nonadjustable) volume?

    • Hi Andrew,

      I sent your question to the Personal Audio team at Best Buy’s head office and they forwarded it to Sony. The Sony representative sent this response for you:

      The Quick Attention mode is fixed volume, with a focus on isolating voices for easy conversations and PA announcements.
      The Ambient Sound mode can be controlled via the Headphone Connect app and you can adjust the ambient sound on a slider from complete noise cancelling to zero noise cancelling on a slider from 0 – 20. This mode also allows a selection to focus on voices.

      Best regards,
