The moment you see this buddy, you will not be surprised that it comes from the top brand as Sony. They look stunning and confident. It makes you want to wear it all day long with pride.
What makes me cool with it is its smart rechargeable case. This allows you to carry your buddy anywhere and let it entertain you no matter what kind of activities you are involved with. The case doubles as a battery pack. So if you need emergency charging, you don’t need to worry since this buddy gives you the opportunity to do that.

But you don’t need to sacrifice the quality of sound when you use Sony WF-1000XM3.
Sony WF-1000XM3 - soundIt provides a high quality sound because the 24-bit audio signal processing has a major contribution to it. The clarity of sound makes it to compete with MW07 Plus, Harman Kardon FLY TWS, Beoplay E8 3.0 and Technics EAH-AZ70W. You can hear a balanced sound (lows, mids and highs), but the bass seems a little flat, especially for people who love the low frequencies.
This earbud pair comes with high-profile technology that will ease your life. For instance, it has a proximity sensor which detects the wearing. For those who haven’t known about this concept, the proximity sensor can determine the commands for the earbuds when the users take one out. Sony WF-1000XM3 will always know when they’re in use or not. For instance, when you take one out, the music will automatically pause. Then it will resume when you put that one back to its place.
You can also tap the touch panel to play, pause, or stop your music tracks. The Quick Attention mode allows you to touch the buddy to hear the ambient sound.
Speaking of battery life, it comes stronger than its past rival from Apple and Sennheiser. Per charged, it can stay there for you for six hours or more, depending on the volume and usages activities. Not to mention that it has a quick charge mode. You can plug it for ten minutes and get 90 minutes of usage with this buddy. It only takes two to three hours for full charge.
What I like- top-notch noise-cancellation quality. I don’t see any other ear bud in its class has such great noise cancelling feature;
- fantastic looks;
- the great sound reproduction quality.
What I dislike- it's not suitable for sports or active activities (it's not sweat resistant and not splashproof);
- it doesn't support aptX codec.
