Review: Sony WH-1000XM3 ANC headphones sound even better


Could Sony improve on its best noise cancelling headphones in 2018? Well, yes. The WH-1000XM3 (M3) is superlative – and that is no mean feat. We said the

Good headphones for travel or the office


These headphones tick a lot of boxes, and I've found them to be great for travel (airplane/train/bus) as well as use in the office. Sound quality: Excellent, particularly if you have an aptX enabled bluetooth device. Clear audio, with a bit more bass...
