”Sony delivers another stunning pair of true wireless earbuds.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2022 award-winner.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Fit I bought these off the back of the excellent reviews. I've tried for a week to get them to fit air tight with the test on the app. Right ear sometimes gets hammered in there, left have never managed. tried all tip sizes and watched all support. Noise Cancelling is not what I would call noise cancelling. need to turn up loud to cancel noise. defeats the purposeof the technology. When I have had the right ear smashed in there its uncomfortable, and I hear very loud thumping in my ears from my footsteps. No use

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Annoying controls I bought these on good reviews, but none mentioned that the controls are activated by wearing a hood or anything coming close to the earbuds very annoying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top drawer If you set this product up for sound quality over connectivity and make use of the 360 reality audio with DSEE set to auto in the settings, you make use of this vastly superior product. Marvellous bit of kit this

They have really enhanced listening to music

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK if you find it for cheap Sound quality is decent, but not stellar by any means. Bass is great. Quite comfy, but not for more than 2-3 hours at a time. I wish there was an option to manually configure the controls. I wish there was the ability to stop playback + activate ambient sound in just a tap (not by having to hold the finger on them). Sometimes they temporarily disconnect, but for less than second, so not a big issue. The 360 reality sound is just a fling. Unimpressive at best, despite the intro in the Sony app suggesting otherwise.
