”Sony’s premium wireless headphones deliver a sonic masterclass.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 Product of the Year.

The best made better – industry-leading noise cancellation with the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones

Regarded as one of the best in the business, Sony’s noise cancellation system keeps you isolated from noise and in touch with your music. Whether you’re working in a busy office, traveling or just enjoying music in a public space, these Sony noise cancelling headphones provide the best in long-term noise isolation – meaning you hear more of your music and less of the outside world.

Adaptive Sound Control
Using the powerful QN1 processor, the WH-1000XM4 headphones now feature Adaptive Sound Control. This intelligently adjusts the ambient sound settings by detecting your frequent locations and activities, and adjusting the sound to suit. Use the Sony Headphones Connect app and get even more control over your sound.

Premium quality, wireless sound
With LDAC wireless audio system, these Sony Bluetooth headphones are able to receive around three times more detail than ordinary Bluetooth headphones. With an improved frequency response, you’ll hear more of the music, with the quietest details easy to hear. As a further bonus, the WH-1000XM4s now feature Bluetooth Version 5.0 – giving less compression and a more dynamic sound.

Unique, DSEE Extreme technology and LCP drivers
DSEE Extreme upsamples compressed music files, giving them a fuller, richer sound. This means that even your oldest recordings sound their very best. Using 40mm drivers with LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) diaphragms, these Sony headphones are quick to react to every detail in the music – whatever the genre.

Smart features to make life easier
Multiple smart technologies make listening and calling easier than ever. Speak-to-Chat automatically pauses the music when you start a conversion – such as ordering a coffee – so you don’t have to remove your headphones. Once you do remove them, though, Wearing Detector pauses the music or powers the headphones off – depending upon how long they’re left.

Superior call quality
With five built-in microphones and advanced signal processing, Precise Voice Pickup Technology means your caller gets to hear you clearly. Even when you’re at a busy office, station or terminal, the call quality is crystal-clear.

Voice assistant and touch sensitive pad for effortless communication
Compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri, you don’t need to touch your phone to make a call, change the music or seek information. Simply press and hold the noise cancelling button and ask your PA to help. The Touch Sensor control pad also accesses a wide range of other features, such as Quick Attention for an immediate drop in volume – ideal if you need to cross the road.

Multi-point connection – connect to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously
This handy feature lets you seamlessly stay in touch with two devices. You might, for example, connect to your smartphone and a HiRes music portable. As a call comes in, the headphones are smart enough to know which device needs connecting and switches to the phone automatically. At other times, you can switch between two devices at the touch of a button.

Quick to charge and 30 hours battery life
Use the optional AC adaptor and just 10 minutes of charging is enough for 5 hours playback – perfect for when you’re in a hurry. Once fully charged up (in around 3 hours), these headphones give up to 30 hours of playback – easily enough for a week’s worth of commuting. Switch off Noise Cancellation and this increases to an even more impressive 38 hours.

Designed for the longest journeys - light and comfortable
At just 254 grammes, the WH-1000XM4 headphones are amongst the lightest in their class. Combine this with the thick padding and over ear design and you have headphones that go the distance – in comfort.

Made for music on the move
Supplied with a premium travel case, the foldable WH-1000XM4 headphones make the perfect travel partner. An in-flight adapter plug is also supplied – letting you make the most of the noise cancellation ability and enjoy your music with far less disturbance.

Enhance every journey, with the Sony WH-1000XM4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great The sound quality is excellent, they're very comfortable, and the noise counselling is fantastic, especially on transport. The included case is also lovely. However, I'd really prefer actual buttons instead of touch controls. Changing the volume using gestures is annoying and slow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and Beautiful I’ve been using this headset for absolutely everything, from journeys to college to playing games on my pc. On weekdays I spend at least 7 hours daily using this headset and it lasts way past that. The headphones themselves are extremely LIGHT and so SOFT that you barely remember they are on. I have unfortunately dropped them once and they haven’t got a single scratch or haven’t experienced any changes. The noise cancelling is great, I take an bus journey ever day and barely hear anything. The features such as the adaptation to location is great especially if you use them in your school or workplace. Overall an absolutely beautiful headset, definitely worth the price point

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A well rounded pair of headphones I bought my headphones 10 days ago and it's been really great so far. The noise cancelling is great and does a phenomenal job of cancelling out low frequency noises. I wore it for an entire evening outside in crowded places and could barely hear any external noise. Obviously it doesn't entirely cancel out the really loud noises like on the London tube but does a phenomenal job of minimizing its effect. The touch panel might take some getting used to initially but once you get past that stage, it's really easy to use. It's really comfortable and so far, it hasn't caused me any physical discomfort despite wearing it for hours. My only complain/issue is that it isn't waterproof and on a hot day outside, you need to be careful if you tend to sweat a lot. I was wondering if I made the right choice considering the XM5's were announced a few days after I made my purchase, but I can comfortably say that I have no regrets. It's foldable as well (which the XM5's aren't) which is a huge plus point for me personally. Overall, it is an amazing pair of ANC headphones with great sound quality and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Headphones These were gifted to me as a 40th Birthday present. I had looked into headphones and these were the ones After long searching I felt were the best. Ok a little more expensive than would have liked however they were all was expecting and more. The sound quality is amazing. It felt like I was listening to songs for the very first time! Battery life is great and they are really comfortable. The app is easy to setup and use. I cannot recommend these enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Great sound and the noise cancelling is really good but the best feature over my existing headphones, which cost more than the Sony ones is how comfortable the Sony headphones are. I managed to get the blue colour but very difficult to find
