Can it connect to multiple devices at a time is the real question

Simply Kevin says:

That band will break in a year, just search for “sony mdr 1000x breaking” Mine broke as well, so, its a desing problem, for a +300€ they dont cover that in the guarantie,

Luke Taylor says:

Finally manufacturers are moving their headphones to USB-C for charging! I keep checking these reviews to be disappointed at the lack of a port refresh, but no more. I’m keeping a very close eye on these now.

Haha I just got the 1000xm2 for 174 bucks I doubt this has better futures for double the price

Aha, a great review from CNET, I have missed these high-end quick reviews, with great video and sound. A pleasure to watch, and informative. I wish there were more of these types of reviews. Thanks. I am generally not a Sony fan. But these look very good and features. The price point seems also excellent compared to features. Now, all I need his some way of making my very old ears/hearing to revert back to my teens. I wish science had some abilities around this. Maybe in my next life.

How about build quality? Still breaking ?

I am glad they fixed the cups I tried the M2 before buying the bose and the cups were the only real problem. It is a nice that there is a comparable noise canceling headset.

Michael McGrath says:

The Sony WH-1000XM2 already dethroned the Bose QC35. Now the WH-1000XM3 has absolutely annihilated it

Always VIRAL says:

Sound quality order currently goes: nuraphone,Sony and then Bose. Now it’s probably still the same

Newer version of Bluetooth????

SayIDidItTM says:

vs. Sennheiser PXC 550??? And will we be getting an updated version soon? (I love the double tap better then cupping the earcup to hear outside noise. First off, I think it looks weird and I don’t need to hold my hand by the headphones the whole time…)
