Are these water- and sweat-resistant?
The earphones could feature a P2i coat or nano coat that can guard against sweat, even if this does not have an IP (Ingress Protection) designation. Sony is known for producing goods that aren’t purportedly water/sweat resistant but have been able to withstand sweat or water just fine. Airpods do not have any water or sweat resistance either, but many people work out in them and they survive just fine, which may help allay any concerns. Similar to the WF-1000X, Sony’s last generation of TW earbuds, they were not at all water or perspiration resistant, although many users would work out in them with no issues.
Can you utilize your left and right ears separately from one another?
No, if you wear only one unit while listening to music or other stereo audio, you will hear either the left or right channel depending on which unit you are wearing. Monaural sound cannot be heard when the left and right channels are combined.
How long does it take to see a movie?
Due to the features of Bluetooth wireless technology, the audio playing on this device may lag behind that of the transmitting device. As a result, whether watching movies or playing games, the sound may not match the vision.
how is the call quality on the phone? I’m shocked that hasn’t come up in any reviews. Is it at least as nice as AirPods?
Terrible for phone conversations in environments with considerable background noise, like an airport. Outside noise is audible over the other end of the connection more so than my voice. Additionally, the sound becomes robotic and distorted, and the connection becomes choppy. These issues are unexpected for earphones of this caliber.
Is it possible to use it only for noise cancellation without needing to listen to music?
You can, indeed. The noise-canceling feature will activate automatically after the headset has been removed from the charging case. With the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app, you may also modify the noise-canceling and ambient sound mode settings.

How well does the bass?
The bass is excellent, to be sure. You can adjust the bass and create your own unique settings by using the companion app. I have been pleased with the bass on them because it is something that is extremely important to me.
How effective is noise cancellation? Does it resemble over-ear headphones?
No, in my view. I have both of these and the Sony WH-1000XM2 over-the-ear noise-canceling headphones, although the latter are far better in this area. I believe that much of the nose block is provided by the ear cup itself. Although I haven’t used the earbuds in noisy environments like trains or aeroplanes, they dampen sounds in coffee shops rather than giving you the impression that a “cone of quiet” is surrounding you as with over-the-ear headphones.
Has anyone ever used this on a shooting range as an active earplug? I wonder how effectively the hearing is protected.
The WF-1000XM3 is not a range-specific ear plug, and I just don’t feel like buying one for that situation. The noise canceling feature works well in low-frequency environments like those found in cars, trains, workplaces, and areas close to air conditioning, but it struggles to block out higher frequencies like human voices. Consider using earplugs designed specifically for shooting ranges.
How is the bass? for songs with lots of bass.
Although I think the bass is plenty, there will always be some who demand more, more, and more. You may always dial more if you wish to because the tone control is compatible with all music sources. They might not have enough bass, though, to blow out your fillings or set off vehicle alarms from ten feet away.
Is there a way to stop the annoying delays when changing between tasks?
By choosing Adaptive Sound Control on the Dashboard of the Sony Headphones Connect app, you may disable or modify the WF-1000XM3’s Adaptive Sound Control feature.
