Refurbished Sony WH-1000XM3 Headphones

Was wondering if anyone has any experience with Sony's refurbished headphones. Are they still pretty much the same as brand new?

    Depends which seller. If directly from Sony they're pretty accurate to the description of the condition.


    I've bought refurb camera equipment from sony before and they're as good as new. I imagine they'd treat their other products in the same way


    Got mine during the last Sony $319 refurb sale. Had the same experience as others which was opened box taped shut with a brand new set inside. They work great and I'm glad I pulled the trigger despite a bunch of posters saying not to.


      I gotta ask, did you NEED them? I find myself wanting them a lot, but… ugh lol.


        No one NEEDS $300+ ANC headphones hahaha


        Haha! I have enough trouble justifying my purchases to myself let alone others :)

        They are very good. If you fly fairly regularly as I do they will ensure you hear practically nothing but what you're playing the whole flight.

        If you have to join meetings from time to time as I do also, the microphone is really good and I am always told they can hear me clearly.

        If you are on the fence, go to a Sony shop and try them on. My only gripe is they are a bit heavy for long use. That said, I think they are great.
