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 Jaimie_za from Only critique: people cannot hear me on a call. So many great features, namely the quality of the noise cancelling is supreme. The sound is very clear - 10/10 there! The app works seamlessly, which features such as movement predictability. I love that the ends rotate so that when they are around your neck, they lay flatter. I have the stone coloured ones - love the colour - so nice to have a neutral option other than black or white. My only critique is that I cannot use them to call someone - apparently I sound like I am in a tunnel.. and that's on a good day! Sometimes they cannot hear me at all. If people could hear me when I used these headphones, I would rate these 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marky01 from Fantastic clarity of sound I've only had them a week but I'm really delighted with the build quality and feel amazing sound reproduction and clarity due to superb noise cancelling Very comfortable to wear even for long periods I haven't quite worked out the custom control yet and to fully use ambient sound control but for music ,phone calls and listening to lectures they are great

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oli5762267 from Great headphones Really great headphones, sound quality is excellent and very customisable. Only (well known) drawback I would say is the mic performance on Teams calls is very poor, lots of complaints from colleagues not being able to hear me properly. Workaround is use the mic on the laptop and headphones just for audio. In terms of listening to music and movies though I can’t complain, great sounds!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Christian_G from Best in class, but room for improvement. First of all:They sound good, are comfortable to wear, mostly convenient to use and the noise-cancelling/ambient sound control holds up well except for one notable exception: When air moves quickly over the ambient sound control microphones. What could be improved? There could be more buttons, or the left side could have touch controls as well. I would like to use the Google Assistant feature, but I can't if I still want to be able to change ambient sound control mode quickly without a voice prompt. Ambient sound control is pretty much unusable whenever there is wind around you. It doesn't have to be particularly strong, either. Even light wind combined with a brisk movement results in wind noise on both ambient sound and noise-canceling. I imagine this is relatively difficult to fix, but it does mean that one of the more heavily advertised features aren't really usable in relatively common situations. It should be easier to switch between paired Bluetooth devices or easier to find out how to switch between them, something like a list of recent or available devices in the connect app, so you can connect to either one with the tap of a (possibly on-screen) button. Currently, I resort to briefly disabling Bluetooth on device A and then telling device B to connect to the headphones. They are still very good headphones, and I don't know of any much better ones for on the go, but if anyone made headphones that are on par in terms of sound quality and comfort with these and implement my suggestions, I'd gladly switch to those.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KB007 from Battery not charging won’t repair under warranty Unfortunately the sony repair centre will not repair my headphones saying that they have water damage - I have never used my headphones in any water conditions and take pride in looking after my equipment

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lanky47 from Good sound, good noise cancelling Bought these to replace Bose QC35ii which I enjoyed, but which had expired after 2 years light use. Pros: - Sound quality equal to or better than Bose - Noise cancelling equal to Bose - Work well on calls via phone or pc Cons: - Why 2 apps to use, I imagine some would find them complicated to use - Cheap feeling construction, pretty much all plastic & soft feel coatings. - The worst for me, ear cups are quite shallow & narrow & the tops of my ears touch the inside making them uncomfortable to wear. I only use them occasionally otherwise this would be a deal breaker. Please note I do not have particularly large ears

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jon59 from Excellent headphones I've researched a lot of headphones before deciding to purchase. Sonys.WH-1000XM4. Headphones. The build of the headphones are the best I've seen on the market. The noise cancellation it's very good. The sound quality when on..360 Reality audio it's exceptional. I have never seen the way the headphones analyses and takes a photograph of each ear to give you the best sound quality what ever you our listing too. I know a lot about headphones. I will put these headphones in the category of being the best on the market. That only Downside is the paper manual. It's just one big sheet of enormous paper. It would of been much easier just just to print it in a small booklet that's readable. So I would recommend Reading the manual online. If you look after these headphones, they will last you a very long time.They are expensive. But well worth that money. So that's Final verdict is..5 Stars for everything. To carrying case .the design. The look. Feel of the headphones. And most importantly the sound quality. Excellent. Well done Sony.
