Sony WF-1000XM4 (Black)
A complete redesign for this award-winning headphone
Following on from generations of ‘best buys’ and ‘5-star- winners, the WF-1000XM4 earphones are Sony’s best yet. With a powerful new processor at their heart, sound and functionality is better than ever. The redesigned style is more comfortable than before while being smaller and lighter, too. Despite being more compact, battery life is better than ever, giving you a complete win-win.
New Integrated Processor V1 at its heart
Sony’s Integrated Processor V1 is the powerful heart of the WF-1000XM4 and enhances the noise cancelling and Bluetooth performance. Along with industry-leading performance, it also manages to use less power, giving you improved battery life.
Industry-leading noise reduction
Combining the V1 processor with dual noise sensing microphones gives the WF-1000XM4 amazing levels of noise cancelling. The twin sensors pick up outside noise from all directions and pass it on to the processor to be filtered. The result is a super-quiet background, even in busy offices and public transport. Even on a windy day, Automatic Wind Noise Reduction mode keeps the elements hushed.
5-star sound with new 6mm drivers and DSEE Extreme
The new 6mm drivers feature a 20% increase in magnet volume, giving you improved bass response. The drivers also enhance the noise cancellation still further, by generating a high-precision cancellation signal. Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme upsamples compressed music files in real time, adapting to the music genre. The result is a richer, more natural sound from all your music.
Fine-tune the sound and get the perfect fit with Headphones Connect
Get the Sony Headphones Connect app (available on Apple iOS and Google) and you can fine-tune the sound to exactly how you like it. Ambient Sound Control lets you decide just how much background noise you hear while the equalizer tunes the sound output to your exact preferences. By taking simple measurements, the latest version can even suggest the right sized earbuds for your ears.
Adaptive Sound Control adjusts to you
Another feature available via the Headphones Connect app is Adaptive Sound Control. This detects whether you’re walking, traveling or stationary and then adjusts the ambient sound settings to suit – automatically.
Calls made clearer
With Precise Voice Pickup Technology, your voice sounds clearer down the line. Beamforming microphones and a bone-conduction sensor pick up every nuance of your voice, making you clearly recognisable to the caller. Powerful Noise Cancelling tech lets you hear them every bit as clearly.
Amazon Alexa and Google voice assistants
Using the built-in microphone, the Sony WF-1000XM4 headphones are compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google’s voice Assistant. Simply press and hold the noise-cancelling button and ask your PA a question. The touch sensitive pad also lets you communicate more easily – simply hold the pad to instantly turn down the volume with Quick Attention.
New surface design for enhanced comfort
Since introducing the world’s first in-ear headphones in 1982, Sony has processed huge amounts of data on ear shapes around the world. The WF-1000XM4 earphones benefit from the result of this work, with a brand new surface shape that best suits the majority of ear shapes. The result is the most comfortable WF-1000XM headphone to date.
Water resistant to IPX4 standard
The latest WF-1000XM earphones are now water resistant to the IPX4 rating. These means you can take the headphones for a run in the park, without having to worry about rain or sweat damaging the tech.
Listen all day, with the class-leading battery life
Although smaller and lighter than ever, the WF-1000XM4 earphones have a longer battery life. With a class-leading 8 hours available, these earphones lead the premium in-ear pack. The case provides an extra two charges, giving you a total of up to 24 hours playback. If you’re in a hurry, a quick five-minute charge is enough for a full hour’s playback – perfect for the commute to work.
Relax to your music, with the Sony WF-1000XM4.
