Sony's WH-100X noise-canceling headphones are often regarded as high-quality headphones, but the new Sony 100XM3 headphones take the premium headphones back to the drawing board. Designed to be lighter and less bulky than before, these new headphones place an emphasis on comfort, especially during long wear times. The Sony 100XM3 headphones further this focus on comfort by including plush cushioning around the earcup and headbands that envelop the ear in a relaxing way.
The headphones also feature a redesigned noise-canceling processor that outperforms its predecessors in many ways. Firstly, the processor greatly improves the noise-canceling properties to the point that take off and landing on a plane could not be heard. Secondly, the improved noise-canceling also improves audio quality, which is further propelled by a 32-bit DAC and amplifier.
