”Sony’s latest premium wireless headphones deliver a sonic masterclass”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 award-winner'.

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 Very good! I really enjoy these headphones! After trying it for the first time, I NEED noise-cancelling in my headphones. I've been using cheaper headphones that aren't bad, but there was always something about them missing. They clamped my head and gave me headaches, the noise-cancelling wasn't good enough to block out talking while studying (I have trouble focusing when others are speaking around me), the ear muffs were too small or pushed on my ears causing pain after a couple of hours of wear. These are amazing and have none of these faults! They're extremely comfortable and block sound very well. I really like the ambience aware feature you can turn on or off on the headphones themselves; when crossing a street, you'll definitely be able to hear cars as well as your audio of choice. They have a nice mic as well for Zoom meetings and everything I've tried listening to sounds amazing, from podcasts to music to Youtube videos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Headphones Some issues with Multipoint Really good headphones. The sounds quality is awesome and the ANC is brilliant. A lot of noise will be completely blocked out and what's left is suppressed enough to make it manageable. I use them in our home office that I share with my wife and they do the job. I also use them for Teams calls and they work well. On the downside the multipoint is confused. When I have them paired with my phone and laptop the app seems to favour the phone so although the sound is coming from the laptop the controls on the headphones are not working as they are trying to control the phone. It also struggles with knowing which window is being used in Windows. Sometimes it locks onto Teams when I'm not on a call but I'm watching Youtube. This is just a bit fiddly. But overall the best headphones I've had and with great features, so overall I highly recommend them. Hopefully, the Bluetooth can be sorted out with software updates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound quality Definitely better sound quality than my Audio-Technica ATH-1000X4, although not as much of a difference as I might have hoped with the price difference. I'm glad that I can use them wired, although it is a shame that the associated app doesn't work in that mode - sometimes I'd like to reduce the bass a bit. Very handy rigid carrying case, with size minimised by clever folding ability of the headphones. It's a shame they are apparently not waterproof, although I haven't tested that out!
