Good price for last year's model. While they are still typically $349 on Amazon and Best Buy, they are usually around $249 on eBay brand new. So this is even better than that - plus obviously has the credibility of a big box retailer.

If you're looking for what's different between the XM2s and XM3s, here is a great write up: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.whatgear.net/technology//sony-wh-1000xm3-vs-sony-wh-1000xm2-should-you-upgrade%3fformat=amp

The short list is that the MX3s are slightly refined for 2018, including slightly more bass, slightly better microphone, slightly better controls, slightly more comfortable, and minor design differences.

If I had to choose between these MX2s at $200 and MX3s at $350, I'd probably choose these. I don't think there is a $150 difference between the two.

With that being said, if you have the money, I think the MX3s are the best you can buy right now - even better than the Bose.

So this seems a better deal compared to the Sony WHH900N/B for $170 at Costco, Correct?

Thanks for that. I've also found another easy breakdown of the differences from a reddit post [reddit.com].
  1. Lighter - The new Sony's 1000xm3 is 20 grams lighter the 1000xm2 which is great for over time use.
  2. Carrying Case is Bigger - Carrying case is bigger than previous model making extra compartment for cables and it is now built in fabric instead of rubber.
  3. USB Type C - Thankfully the charging port is now type C instead of type B port from previous model.
  4. Overall Build Quality Improved - Compare to the previous model, XM3 are much thinner and more comfortable.
  5. Materials - Majority of Sony's XM3 ear cap uses soft materials which feel more nicer when putting on.
  6. Headband - It has more padding on the headband which add more comport when using for longer period of time.
  7. Physical Button - The two physical button on Xm3 are more tactile when press and easier to tell apart compare to previous one.
  8. Ear Caps - More space on ear caps making it more comfortable and less heating when using for a longer period.
  9. Improved Fast Charging - Sony improved fast charging capability for the XM3 model making it far better fast charging (5 hours use from 5 minutes charge).
  10. Upgraded Bluetooth - Previous model uses Bluetooth 4.1 and the new model uses 4.2 which is not really a thing knowing that Bluetooth 5.0 is already out.
  11. Improved ANC - Compare to the previous model, Xm3 has improved Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) using dedicated HD noise cancellation processor called QN1. What is does is analyzing ambient sound which block more higher frequencies like chatter.
  12. Improved Sound Quality - Sound quality has been improved most notably on the bass which is much deeper and clearer.
I have both and while the improvements on the XM3s are amazing, this price point on the XM2s from a big box retailer is a no brainier! Wink

I understand these have the old and flimsy hinges that are known to break.

I bought 2 pair for $104 from Target sold one to pay for the other. I like them better than my QC 25s. The touchpad works well and the tap and hold to mute the music and amplify surroundings to hear someone talk without removing the headphones is a killer feature. 30 hours of battery is accurate, but there is no warning when it is about to die, it just stops. They do recharge fast.
