”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 sound but could be better The sound quality and separation is pretty awesome, battery life is looking like it will be amazing, had them on for over 2 hours at full volume and they're still at 100%, they are also light, comfy and look good. On the downside there is no mute microphone option when in a call. This is a must as one cannot always be infront of a laptop or phone and a button is needed on the headphones. Please provide this ASAP or allow user to choose it for the custom button. Options for the custom button are very limited and I can't seem to change it at all to anything apart from alexa/Google. Would also like the bass boost to have more power and for it to apply at lower frequencies. On tracks with low sub bass, the lower bass frequencies are barely audible. The bass boost overall could be stronger maybe go up to +20.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but ... I got these headphones and was really excited to start to use them. From a sound quality perspective they are great ... no complaints about them at all. When connected to multiple devices at the same time it doesn't always go as planned. I have been on a conference call on my laptop and then a call comes in on my phone that I subsequently reject but then lose the connectivity to my conference call. When I get WhatsApp notifications and press the button to hear the notification it works well but if I hold the button down to send a response it has never worked for me ... maybe I'm doing something wrong. If some of these types of features were corrected then this would be an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headphones I wanted good quality noise cancelling headphones and these are great. It was also important that I had headphones that did not leak sound as I like to listen to music at night and my wife hates it when she can hear the music playing while she is trying to sleep and these work quite well for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, The best on the market! I got these free actually with my phone but it took 2 months to receive them however it was worth the wait, they are incredible & I love the app for them too, I've had other known brands but these are way better & feel so comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to connect and use. Already have the 1000XM3 so these needed to be top notch to beat them,and yes they've just done it. Playing music through my Xperia 1V into these headphones is probably the best sound you can get,and so many settings to get the exact sound you prefer,one gripe,and it is just one Sony have got rid of the concert, arena etc settings which I loved hopefully they will put that back on with a software update? Very pleased with these headphones, comfortable, fantastic noise cancelling great sound and as usual Sony quality and built to to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Features I bought these as an upgrade from my WH-1000XM3s, and they're far superior. Crisp treble, deep bass, and excellent noise cancelling. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds as good as they look One of the problems I have faced when choosing headphones is I wear hearing aids, feedback (hearing aids squealing) has constantly put me off over the ear models. I read and watched reviews on the WH-1000XM4 and thought I'd take the gamble, a decision I don't regret. The headphones fit perfectly around the ear and have enough adjustability to cut out the close proximity feedback, my hearing aids are what pick up the music and my music has never sounded so good, I have a pair of Boss in ear headphones and there is no comparison, the WH-1000XM4 beat anything I have ever tried before, picking out the lead and rhythm guitars is something I have not been able to do before but these headphones are the bees knees, the sound of each instrument is so clear I have a whole new world when it comes to music. I also plug them into my PS4 and games are awesome, I jumped a mile on my first go at Resident Evil, the whole experience of playing Red Dead Redemption 2, the sounds of the birds, horses, gunfire and effects take you right into the game and it's as if your there. There is a app and graphic equalizer you can download to tweak things to your preference, once you have you won't want to take these comfortable smooth looking headphones off, I have a new lease of life with my hearing and highly recommend the WH-1000XM4, swipe up or down to adjust the volume and forward and back to skip tracks......Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound I had been thinking for a long time about purchasing these headphones and when my old ones packed up I eventually purchased some. I wish I had done it earlier. The sound is the best I have heard from a pair of headphones. It is excellent. They are also very comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality headphones Quality headphones at a keen price, delivered quickly ; these are very comfortable and have great sound (though slightly sketchy when connecting to tv : sometimes refusing to 'pair', when other 'lesser' 'phones succeed ... not sure why that is).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional I was amazed by the quality of the sound and even more by the quality of the noise cancellation. I can finally enjoy my music, and concentrate in meeting without noises. The app is very simple to use, and I loved the fact that it can recognize my outside setting and readjust automatically to the best sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound except with Samsung TV Bought about 2 weeks ago to use with my Samsung TV and also for music on my iPhone. The sound via my phone is great. Nice and clear with good base and volume. However, very disappointed with the TV. Should’ve read more reviews before I bought, they work fine for a while, then the sound gets garbled and then goes out of sync. If you can stand it for long enough, it does return to normal, but then does the same again after a while. When it is connected without the garble, the sound is good though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from delivers on noise cancelling and sound quality I went round and round in circles comparing reviews and features of Bose and Sony noise cancelling headphones. I've always been a Bose user in the past but when it was time for new headphones I decided to change brands. Sony has been great. But so was old Bose. Perhaps you can't go wrong with either of these quality products
