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 1 out of 5 by from Appalling sound quality from the microphone. I bought these headphones because of Sony’s claims about call quality. It turns out call quality is absolutely dreadful. The headphones are, literally, unusable for calls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality I bought these headphones a month ago and haven’t left them alone. They are simply sublime

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Headphones are amazing! Amazing sound, great comfortability, and most of all, a very long battery life! Excellent for long trips! If you are wanting to buy a one-time headset to use for a very long time, highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not hyped I’ve had it for a month now, and it’s all as good as described. So many things are over hyped now, so it’s been a real pleasure to find something that does not fall short of expectations. I’ve found many uses for it I had not even thought of. The ambient sound reduction is so good, it can create a silent place almost anywhere. Some of the oddest places I use it is when cooking or driving. Sounds odd I know but the sense of peace it brings is wonderful. So I do recommend them to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headphones Only downside of this great sound quality and feature rich pair of headphones is the short charging cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Excellent on every aspect, the only thing that I would like it to improve but perhaps I don’t know hot to use it properly is when I want to use Alexa while wearing the headphone I need to keep the Alexa app open on my phone, it’d be nice if I didn’t need to but it’s a super small detail that doesn’t affect at all the quality Im so happy I bought this headphones, excellent value for money Can’t wait to see the next ones with new features

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great noise cancelling and sound quality I purchased my WH-XM4 two weeks ago. The noise cancelling part is simply mindblowing... if you haven't experienced it yet, try it. I work in and open-office environment, and the headphone blocks out 95% of any noise relevant. The app for Android it comes with is great. A real quality product that lets you customize your gear as you wish. Really well done. I used it to play PC games also via bluetooth, the Resident Evil 2-3 and 7 were amaizing with these babies on. Pairing with up to 2 devices is a charm indeed! It was one of the main selling-points for me. The microphone quality is good, really good. Compared to the XM3, it sounds like night-and-day... one being able to perform good phone-calls the other being rubbish. It was my 2nd main selling point. The price is high, but I don't think that it is overpriced. I had only one downside, and that is the fact that it is uncomfortable to use. Maybe my head is just too big, or my ears are too sensitive, but after 20-30 mins I can feel it on my head, my ears, it feels like it is getting warm (when it isnt). That is a big bummer, that I hope to be able to overcome by simply using it more-and-more often, letting my ears getting used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silence is Golden. Outstanding sound quality, with noise cancelling that has to be heard to be believed - or not heard! It has certainly saved my sanity on the hour long bus journey each day, erasing practically all the background noise and leaving just even the quietest music to be enjoyed.
