Sony's premium noise-canceling earbuds now available for purchase via Amazon
Sony's take on premium noise-canceling earbuds, the WF-1000XM3 are finally available for purchase after being officially unveiled exactly one month ago. Packed with the same industry-leading noise-canceling technology that made Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones so popular among audiophiles, the earbuds can be had for $228.

The earphones are available in two colors – black and silver and are fully compatible with both Android and iOS devices. However, to use them at their full potential, you'll have to install the Sony Headphones Connect app, which lets you use Smart Listening technology to control the ambient sound settings.

According to Sony, the WF-1000XM3 should offer up to 24 hours of battery life with carrying case. Also, you'll be getting 90 minutes of play time with 10 minutes quick charge when the battery is low.

The earphones allow you to activate your smartphone's voice assistant with a single touch. Moreover, to answer an incoming call, you can just double-tap to the earbud and start speaking. Last but not least, thanks to the Smart Listening feature, the earphones will automatically switch to ambient sound mode based on your activity.

we'll see the review. I have the WF-1000x and they're ok. Bass is a little weak, and battery life realistically is at 2 hours maybe 2 and a quarter depending on how loud you have them and whether youuse noise cancelling.

Available for purchase is dubious at best. You won't get them for 3-4 more weeks.
