”Sony’s excellent wireless headphones deliver a sonic masterclass.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2022 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 Good sound I have only had my headphones for a week and I love the sound. I am still getting to grips with all the features and how to use them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Headset Great noise cancellation, there is nothing better on the market. Fantastic features, good app for fine tuning. Just missing the brilliance in sound sometimes. But overall would buy it again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A excellent pair of amazing headphones Having waited and doing so much reading I decided to go for WH-1000XM4 and got to say how amazing the headphones are music sounds amazing and so many different levels to what you can do to adjust the level in how you want the music to sound 10-10 for the headphones and if you decided on which headphones to for XM4 v XM5 the price point is really the difference as the xm4 will not disappoint at all :) :) :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is everything! I've had these headphones for nearly a month now and I love them! The sound is everything to me. I have many pairs of headphones and these are my new favourites. However I do have a niggle and I would knock half a star off if I could or I'd score them 9 out of 10 stars. This would be due to still not getting the knack of the touch controls on the right hand headphone. Hopefully I will eventually get it right! The 360 sound is very clever and works best when recordings are recorded in said spacial ratio. Great detail with plenty of punch. Very comfortable and the noise cancelling though not 100% is one of the best I've experienced. The auto pause when taking off the headphones is a useful feature, especially when you haven't got the touch controls perfected. I still skip tracks and volume using my source. In this instance my phone. I'd recommend these to all. Once I get used to the controls, they will be worthy of a full 10 out of 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG, They are amazing! I saved for these all year, when I finally bought them, I am in heaven. They are light and soft to wear. The sound is clear and crisp. Now I have a handle on how to adjust the volume and skip tracks, they are a breeze to use. It’s taken my 30 minute walk to work to another level ….. I am so happy. Podcasts, blocking out unwanted noise/sounds, Italian lessons or fabulous music…I am 100% happy with my purchase. Thank you so much…. I now don’t know how I could live without them… lol, and I’ve only had them 3-4 weeks. One Very Satisfied customer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beste headset, only downside is the ambient mode That's the Best headset I ever had, and I had lots of headsets from many different brands. The only downside I can find in this headset is the ambient mode, that's definitely not good if compared with other competitors.
