”Sony delivers the goods with another stunning pair of true wireless earbuds.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

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 3 out of 5 by from Great sound, however certain weaknesses I got the headphones a couple of weeks ago as a replacement for my Samsung bluetooth headphones. The sound is beyond comparison, with Sony boosting sound quality comparable to some of the best wired or ear-covering headphones I have had. However, there are certain issues - frequent interruptions, some sound noises that the counterparties here while talking via the Sony headphones, as well as some kind of annoying notifications while changing the position (which can, luckily, be disabled). At least I hope it's those notifications that led to frequent interruptions too. All in all, at that price, I expected much more, greater stability and immaculate quality. Unfortunately they seem at moments like a beta version. Using them with a Samsung S21 Ultra.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from faulty after 2 months Hard to get a good fit with included foam tips or third party silicone tips. Sound is good, noise cancelling is not as good as Bose. Faulty after 2 months light use, has phantom clicks on right bud when walking. :|

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love them I got them as a Christmas present I was worried that ear buds wouldn't stay in and that they would hurt my ears but they where no problems because the app showed me how to put them on right and where able to check them when they were on my ears so I would whole heartily recommend them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Have been using these for couple days now since I bought them. the left earbud of my sennheiser momentum TW2 stopped working so got these and not disappointed. They are louder than the sennheiser, only thing that's annoying is you can't have the function to use noise cancelling set up on the buds as well as volume and track skip/play/pause. You have to use the app. App bit annoying to start with, once you understand how it all works its OK. Also the Earbuds that come with them are decent but ended up using the ones I already had as they are better fit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade I got the for Christmas to replace a set of Sony WF-1000, the original ear buds from Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite simply stunning... So in my 50 ish years, I have owned many pairs of headphones and earbuds either wired or Bluetooth, small, big, in-ear, and "cans". Music is my passion I listen to music whenever I can and wanted a decent pair of buds for my lengthy dog walks. I have a sony Experia 5ii phone so my obvious choice was Sony earbuds so the phone and buds link in harmony. I read 1365 reviews over about 3 weeks before I made my choice and kept getting drawn towards the WF-1000XM4's and did I make the right choice. These headphones are quite simply stunning, they are well built, the case is quality the build is quality. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable and the sony app pictures your ear so you get the best fit which helps this. The noise-canceling is superb, I walk near a busy road at points and the traffic is completely drowned out. Now for the important bit, the sound, there is not much I can say apart from it is amazingly good, the base is perfect, the treble is perfect. I have a Sonos system in my house and I have said to friends and family that having these headphones in is like having the sonos strapped to my head it really is that good. There is an equalizer within the app so you can set up your music just how you like it. In Summary, if you are worried about the price, if you are reading thousands of reviews like I did just go with your gut and buy these you will not be disappointed they are all of the quality and more that you expect from sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed with features I bought a set for my wife and a set for me. My wife has hearing problems so the tv was always too loud for me. My wife can now hear the tv well through her buds and I can have the tv speakers at a more comfortable volume level. The buds are easy to set up and use. I love the noise cancelling, really useful when listening to music whilst vacuuming. The fact I can easily switch to ambient sound and have conversations because the music is switched off when I start talking is great. I have heard sounds from my music that I have not heard before. My wife is pleased that she can use just one bud on occasions as she is totally deaf in one ear. The charging case is a great idea, the ear buds are always at 100% charge and ready to go. The buds are very comfortable and do not cause sweating or itching when used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones Everything is super. a little lack of sound could play louder. when the noise reduction is activated, a humming sound is heard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Overall These are not perfect, but then again no product is but they are very close. I thought based on previous reviews that the fit would be a problem and it was until I changed the size of the ear tips from medium which they come with to small, I usually wear medium but on the comply foam I found small to be a better fit. They are surprisingly comfortable for all day use and that's saying a lot as I have small ears and find it hard getting the right ear buds to fit for an extended period of time. My only real gripes are the size, as they do stick out a lot, and when the Google assistant is enabled as the wake word on the right ear bud, the battery life drains faster on the right ear bud. The Google wake word does work surprisingly well I was impressed coming from the pixel buds. Sounds quality is excellent, noise cancelling is second to none, looks are kinda bespoke, and weight is decent, Sony, please fix the microphone for phone calls it's not bad but it is definitely an area of concern. Overall they are excellent, a definite recommendation. But them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was the expense worth it? I purchased these about a month ago with two questions on my mind. 1: are they worth the premium price and 2; will they fit into my ears! Well the sound quality did not disappoint- exceptional as were the setup and App. Re the fitting the buds I followed the set up and I found them fine to wear fir everyday activity although I’ve not tried sports. So for me a little expensive but great quality especially sound

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounds and noice canceling! I got these headphones from my boyfriend. I'm really happy with them. Noice canceling is great and also the sound is amazing! I would only like an option of an even smaller in ear piece. I have really small ears and in one ear I have a piercing. I'd already be happy if you could buy it additionally, but I couldn't find that option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective Noise Cancelling These ear buds give good control and effective noise cancellation. There is a rich feature set, and the charging/carrying case is convenient, small and charges wirelessly. The integration with my phone works well, and it successfully associates with multiple devices smoothly. The only downside is the size - they are bigger than many in-ear buds, but that buys you loger battery life and better processing, but possibly at more risk of falling out!
Date published: 2022-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality and fit Excellent earbuds but you may need to use the enhanced treble with added clear bass in the app to get best out of them. I also found that of the eartips I tried the sony ones that came with the XM4 worked best for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect, just lacking Bluetooth multipoint Brilliant product from Sony, not quite perfect due to lack of Bluetooh Multipoint. It seems that with Bluetooth 5.2 and LE Audio Sony could still roll it out. Fingers crossed they will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound These earbuds were released just 6 months after I purchased my XM3’s but I bought a set as the battery life on the XM3’s wasn’t the best. I thought the XM3’s were good other than that but these are superior in every way, superior sound quality, superior fit, superior battery life (substantially!) and way better noise cancelling
Date published: 2022-01-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Upgrade to the WF-1000XM3 I was generally happy with my WF-1000XM3's performance as they had good noise cancelling, good battery life and most importantly good sound. The issues I had were that I wanted even longer noise cancelling battery life and I also had a slight issue keeping them in my ears during exercise and I am one of those people that wears headphones to bed as I am a light sleeper and noise will wake me up. I was okay with the size of the XM3 case but wished they were smaller and one final gripe was that I wasn't over keen on the connectivity lights flashing especially if they fell out when I slept and they would flash in my eye to wake me up. The WF-1000XM4's have solved my particular use cases, they stay in my ears much better for both running and sleeping, the noise cancelling lasts even longer and the case size is smaller. Again most importantly they sound great. There are no prolonged flashing lights on the buds or case which is just fine by me. I would say that my only issue with them are the eartips provided, I might need to give them another chance but I just put the ones that were on my XM3's onto my XM4's. Other than that, I am really happy with them and would be hard pressed to see areas for improvement apart from the obvious of we all want longer batteries, less weight, smaller etc which we all want in all mobile products without a hit on performance. I would be interested to know how repairable they are but time will tell if I ever need to change the battery. Thanks Sony headphone division, you have yet to disappoint me with your headphones.
