    Thanks for watching, guys! The Sony WH-1000XM3 are David Carnoy's pick for top noise-cancelling headphone. What you got?

    How many devices can the headphones connect to at once? If it's still stuck at one then I'll have to pass.

    The refresh I've been waiting for! I'm still using the Mark 1. Curious to know – now that the M3 has USB-C, does it support USB-C audio?

    I've owned 3 pairs of Sony headphones over the last 4 years. The XB950BT, 1ABT & the original 1000Xs. Out of the 3 I think the 1ABTs sounded the best. I currently own the Audio Technica ATH-DSR9BTs & I'm pretty satisfied with them. Definitely more transparent than the original 1000Xs. If these use the same drivers as the 1ABTs then I might have to consider these.

    I own both Bose QuietComfort 25 II and The Sony MDR1000X M2 and the Sonys are way better in sound and noise cancelling Imo The Bose are More comfortable

    I have the first version with great sound but they were uncomfortable. I am glad they fixed that. I definitely prefer their sound over the Bose QC35. The latter had a significant deficiency in bass.

    Please compare these with the Nura headphones.

    Is there still the headband cracking issue?

    its impressive how quickly Sony overtook the decade market leader Bose

    But the quality of the materials and the sound? . And guess we can't use them on the PS4?

    The 1000XM2 was the King already. Now the M3 is a God.

    That charging port just popping out the top like that looks so ugly..
