All Kinds of Journeys

  • Commuting while listening to music from these Sony headphones gives the perfect distraction while getting to work.
  • While on a train trip, the noises from all around you can get bothersome at times. With the Sony headphones, the combination of its noise cancelling feature and the closed-back earpiece reduces the distracting sounds around you. 
  • On flights, you'll want to take this along so you can entertain yourself while airborne. It's got noise cancelling as one of its features in order to limit background noise. It's also foldable giving you that extra bit of space in your luggage.

For producing creative work

  • DJ work requires great headphones and the specs on the Sony WH-1000XM3 BT 4.2 30hrs Black such as the 40 cm driver unit size makes it suitable for your needs.

Various Audio Content Types

  • Audio books which would require listening to warm sounds with an emphasis on the vocals.
  • Music which would require a headphone with really good sound reproduction. This is typically helped by the sizeable diameter of the audio driver component built into the earpiece.
  • Video content while watching or streaming a TV episode or full feature film.
  • Radio broadcasts ranging from local news to live performances which these headphones are definitely suited for.
  • Gaming audio to stay immersed while navigating through the virtual worlds from your favourite games.
