No more yabbering colleagues...

Blocks 95% of the verbal diarrhoea spouted by annoying work colleagues and incessant tapping of their loud mechanical keyboards.

Add some music and it's bliss...

Yep, they're expensive so look for them on sale or see if PB Tech will do you a solid and price match with one of their competitors.

If you can get these headphones on sale, they're so worth it. Simply the best noise cancelling I've ever experienced.

Beware

be careful. You might actually die from these headphones. The noise cancellation is so good if I was to be horned by a car, or warned by people I won't hear it and I will die.

The Best

In comparison to the Bose QC15 headphones, the Sony M3 clearly gives a far better, more wide-band, noise cancelling effect. This is most noticeable with voices. The audio quality far exceeds the QC15 with accentuated bass. They sound great and are very comfortable. Definitely worth the price, doubly so when there is a sale.

Mr

We had many top brands of headphones including top model of beats. However this model is far superior in every way. It is better built, better sound, better sound cancellation. In particular we are impressed with battery life. It lasts at least 3 times if not even more then top model of beats headphones. Price was acceptable. So we are highly recommending it.

Excellent ANC

These are the best I have used. Great sound and unmatched ANC. Highly recommended for frequent travellers. Sony app is good too. Pairing with different devices could be tricky.

Absolute rubbish

First two pairs make a hissing sound. Sony's answer, replace with a refurbished pair. So I have ended up with a $500 second hand pair after 8months of no back up. Wish I had bought them from Pb tech, at least I would have had their back up. Not that Sony will admit it, but a common fault. Stay away from this range.

Very happy! Great sound, great battery, and the noise-cancelling drowns out my neighbour's terrible bass-heavy music.

Great sound and battery life

Easily lasts two days without needing to recharge. Sound quality with noise cancelling mode on is excellent. Not so much with ambient sound on/off modes so just avoid those
