What's in the box

  • Headphone cable (approx. 3.94 ft, OFC strands, gold-plated stereo mini plug)
  • Carrying Case
  • Plug Adaptor for In-flight Use

Based on its fit and sound quality alone, the WH-1000XM3 is one of the best headphones I've ever used. But the addition of killer noise-canceling integration also makes it one of the most useful pieces of gear you can have.

Easily the best noise-cancelling headphones ever made.
