Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones
Sony’s intelligent noise-cancelling Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with premium sound elevate your listening experience with the ability to personalize and control everything you hear. Get up to 30 hours of battery life with quick charging capabilities, enjoy an enhanced Smart Listening feature set, and carry conversations hands-free with speak-to-chat.
The technology that makes it happen
Dual noise sensor technology, featuring two microphones on each earcup, captures ambient noise and passes the data to the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 then applies noise cancelling processing in real time to a range of acoustic environments. Working together with a new Bluetooth® Audio SoC (System on Chip), it senses and adjusts to music and noise signals, as well as acoustic characteristics between the driver unit and ears, at over 700 times per second.
Optimizing noise cancelling
To maximize noise cancelling performance, the WH-1000XM4 headphones incorporate two technologies: Personal Noise Cancelling Optimizer, designed specifically for you, and Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing, designed specifically for air travel.
Ambient Sound Control
Adjust ambient sound with the Sony | Headphones Connect app to cancel noise while still allowing through essential sounds, like transport announcements, when you’re listening on the move.
Smart listening technology to enhance your listening
The WH-1000XM4 headphones use an array of smart technologies to create a seamless, hands-free listening experience. For example, simply start speaking to automatically pause your music in Speak-to-Chat, or enjoy adaptive playback thanks to proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors that detect whether your headphones are being worn or not.
Active Noise Cancelation
Industry-leading noise-canceling with Dual Noise Sensor technology
Up to 30-hour battery life with quick charging (10-minute charge for 5 hours of playback)
Premium sound quality by DSEE Extreme technology
Touch sensor controls to pause, play, skip tracks, control volume, activate your voice assistant, and answer phone calls
As soon as you speak to someone, Speak-to-Chat automatically stops the music and lets in ambient sound so you can conduct a conversation.
Multipoint Bluetooth connection
For total convenience, the WH-1000XM4 headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time.
Adaptive Sound Control
Smart function that automatically detects what you’re up to – for example, walking, waiting, or traveling – then adjusts ambient sound settings to best suit the situation.
Clear hands-free calling
Superior call quality with precise voice picks up combines five built-in microphones with advanced audio signal for clear calls
A proximity sensor in the earcups can detect whether or not you’re wearing your headphones, pausing your content when you remove your headphones from your head and resuming playback when you put them back on.
Updated design relieves pressure for long-lasting comfort
