30 Hours of Battery Life with @SonyElectronics WH-1000XM3 Wireless Headphones at @Best Buy #ad

Sony WH-1000XM3 Headphones available at Best Buy

My husband is a major music enthusiast.  If he’s not listening to it, he’s playing it.  Between his upcoming birthday and Christmas, I better start shopping early!  And I’ve got the perfect first product for the list: the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones available at Best Buy!  

What’s so great about the Sony WH-1000XM3?  They really do just about everything you could ask for from a pair of headphones! 

Hands Free Calling and Google Assistant: simply double tap to answer a phone call or press and hold the noise-canceling button to ask the Google Assistant something.  

Industry-leading noise canceling: Sony’s proprietary HD Noise Canceling Processor QN1 brings the WH-1000XM3 to the pinnacle of noise cancellation.  While mowing the yard or even getting in a workout, my husband appreciates being able to block out the other sounds and focus on the music.  This is definitely a feature he will love!  

Premium Sound: The 40mm drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms are Hi-Res Audio compatible, reproducing a full range of frequencies.  Anyone who plays music will appreciate the quality of sound these headphones put out!

All-day listening with quick charging: Listen all day with up to 30 hours of playback and quick charging that gives five hours of playback with just 10 minutes of charge time.  My husband is a busy dad, homeschooling our boys during the day and helping out with his mother’s small business by evening.  The length of charge these headphones hold is fantastic for those who not only will use them for hours at a time, but also for those who might not have time or remember to set them on a charger every night.  

Smart Listening: Smart Listening by Adaptive Sound Control automatically detects your activity and balances noise canceling levels accordingly.  This feature intrigues me and I can’t wait to see how it plays out in day to day listening.  You also can hold your hand over the housing to turn the volume down in an instant.
