Last year, when it came to choosing between the Sony Wh-1000XM2 and the Sony H.ear On 2 it all basically boiled down to fit and comfort. Cause even though the 1000XM2 had some really great performing tech… their ear cups were very cramped. Where as the ear cups on the H.ear On 2 were much more spacious and the gap in performance between these two head phones was very narrow. The 1000XM2’s obviously had the superior Active noise cancelation… but everything else like sound quality, battery life, and features were pretty much the same. But now, the gap in performance between the H.ear On 2 and the New Sony WH-1000XM3 is significantly wider and more importantly, the 100XM3 are now more comfortable then the H.ear On 2. So heres how the new Sony 1000XM3 performs against the Sony H.ear On 2, and why I just flat out wouldn’t pick up the H.ear On 2’s right now.
There is a lot of hype behind the New Sony WH-1000XM3 ANC headphones. And its with good reason, the M3’s got all of the great technology found in the M2’s; improved on them, and packed them inside a much better body. But I know some people just can’t afford to drop $350 on a pair of ANC headphones or they might be hesitant to upgrade to the M3’s. So heres how the new Sony 1000XM3’s compare to the older Sony 1000XM2’s, how my 1000XM2’s have held up after a year of heavy usage, and do you need to upgrade to the 1000XM3.
