The noise cancelling is amazing. Sound quality blows the Bose out of the water. Nice and comfy too, and better battery life. Very, very happy.
About the only negative is they don't do multi device pairing like the Bose does; you can only be connected to one music source at a time.
- The ANC is insane. I wear these in the office, and at 30% volume cannot hear conversations next to me.
- Extremely comfortable and lightweight. I get Cervicogenic headaches, and heavy headsets will trigger these headaches. I can wear these for hours without any pain at all.
- The audio quality is good. Not amazing, and on the default profile, the bass is a little heavy. The bright/excited preset is the best for me I've found.
- The battery life is amazing
- The microphone leaves a lot to desire. Muffled and hard to hear in high ambient noise scenarios.
- The accompanying app needs some work - not as feature rich as one would hope, although is certainly enough to configure headphones.
- The headphones does not have smart Bluetooth; you can only connect to one device at once. What? Is it 2010?
Overall, the cons of these headphones are far outweighed by the pros. I would buy these again in a heartbeat.
Also, sometimes the sound becomes a little bit jerky. It's happening on my phone and on my desktop PC. I know mastering Bluetooth is more an art than a science, but for that price I expected a bit better.
- in terms of noise cancelling, these are on par or better. I wear these at work, or at home while my wife watches TV (or when she's around generally), and they work great.
- for music, these flat out are in a different league to Bose. The bass is deeper, the sound stage is wider and the vocals are crisper.
With the latest update, also now supports Alexa. So with the better tech and longer battery life, it's a no brainer. Amazing headphones.
However, I was quite disappointing to note it's below-par mic and Bluetooth performance.
Mic quality issues: Almost all of the recipients of the calls I made with this were complaining they couldn't hear me and the audio was muffled. I wasn't even in an area where there was a lot of background noise. Tried calling on my commute on the train and it was completely unusable and the other end couldn't understand a work I was speaking. Very disappointing.
Bluetooth issues: During calls and even listening to music, there are constant disruptions to the audio stream with pauses and audio fades which is really frustrating. My phone was only two feet away or inside my pocket.
Verdict: When someone buys a premium wireless headphone these days, one expects it to have really good mic performance (with good background noise reduction) and reliable Bluetooth streaming with zero interruptions. WH1000XM3B certainly does a great job in audio quality and ANC but had compromised the basic features of a standard Bluetooth headset.
