Listening Impressions (Wireless Active Noise Control)
The WH-1000XM3 is really designed for wireless listening. There are several gestures you can use on the right ear piece.
I have never used my mobile for music before so I struggle to find something quick for this review. In the end I picked Plex, as it is already serving my music library. This means I am playing music I am familiar with or accustomed to.
Listening via LDAC mode, audio quality via wireless is not as good compared to the analogue cable with music fed via my work DAC.
Tried a few games on my mobile (Xiaomi Mix 2), as well as some youtube videos. The audio experience via the headphones is certainly better than the phone’s built in speakers. While I would not say the sound quality is terrible, nothing really screams out at me. The sound is pretty boring, and not very engaging.
Good thing with wireless? I don’t find myself getting tangled with the cables, I can forward/reverse pause with my hands. It feels liberating.
Spent a good 8 hours on wireless, personally I am going to stick with cable. You might get a better experience if your phone supports AptX.
