Sony has been ruling the noise-canceling market these last 2 years and the updated WH-1000XM3 looks set to continue this dominant run. This year’s version sees small refinements over last year’s excellent WH-1000XM2 but the addition of USB-C charging and added padding to the bridge ensures that Sony is still the king of cans. The biggest reason why these headphones are arguably the best in the business comes down to the noise-canceling, currently it is in a league of its own and with the addition of aptX HD and Sony LDAC, your music will sound amazing regardless if you’re on Bluetooth or wired. Finally, all of Sony’s flagship headphones offer both Google Assistant and Alexa support.
