”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 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant device, excellent noise cancelling I bought this only a few days ago. I have a noisy neighbour upstairs (live in flats with wooden flooring). Footsteps sounds like people stamping on the ceiling. I've tried everything, telling landlord speaking to the person but not bothered, thought I need to think of something myself so googled it and these headphones came up, they are truly amazing. I thought I was going to have to move out but these headphones so far have blocked all noise out. What a device - truly 5 stars. It has saved me the hassle of a move that I really didn't want make. Thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound but middling noise cancelling I purchased these in February before flying over to India for work. I've previously owned the XM2s but thought i would upgrade - i wasn't aware the 5s were due out. Firstly the actual music quality is a large step up from the 2s. The clarity and precision along with a good tight bass makes every track enjoyable to listen to. Where i am disappointed is the noise cancelling. Although they now have a new noise cancelling chip that wasn't in the XM2s, i found the noise cancelling on a flight no better than my older 2s, with a lot of jet engine drone still being heard. I often find myself checking if the cancellation is actually on, even when i wear them at home. It is reduced but i was expecting far more. I would be tempted to try the new XM5s as the processing is supposed to be better but i wonder if it's just spending more money for little gain, or reduction if you pardon the pun. So the XM4s are a great sounding set of headphones, especially for the price but the noise cancelling is more reduction than anything else. If i'd have known this, i'd probably have kept using my XM2s and saved the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb headphones I bought these a couple of months ago and would not be without them now. Best headphones I have ever had. The sound is amazing! I have already recommended them to a friend and her partner has now bought some.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, I bought a pair these on the strength of reviews and doing a brief demo in-store. While the sound is good with the built in DAC, the sound stage is flat if you power off the headphones as use them as a 'normal' listening pair through normal 3.5mm stereo to a NAD amp - my pair of cheap gaming headphones do better. The bluetooth controls on the side are so slow they are pretty much useless. On the matter of the 3.5mm connection, you need an ultra slim jack connector otherwise it won't fit in the headset housing, Sony could have made the opening 1.5mm wider to fit most standard connectors. The noice cancelling tech is very good though, I will say that. An average sound with a good fit, not worth the price though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and clear. Owned the XM3 for a while which were superb. Moved up to XM4 and am suitably impressed. Noise reduction is marginally improved, and comfort level more than adequate for long use. Holding back from a further upgrade to XM5 due to much increased cost and a subjective reality when it comes to music playback. Construction of the XM4 is as expected and value for money is paramount. The XM4 headphones tick all my boxes and not forgetting their ability to fold up for travel.
