- What hi-fi 5stars Sony WH-1000XM4 August 2020
- Tech Radar 5 Stars
Intelligent and intuitive, Sony’s WH-1000XM4 over-ear wireless headphones make it just you and the music. Further improvements to the brand’s renowned QN1 noise cancelling processor bring you closer to your listening with no distractions. Next gen Adaptive Sound Control optimises the audio according to your activity and surroundings, automatically recognising your frequent locations via GPS. The powerful combination of High Resolution Audio, Bluetooth with LDAC, and DSEE Extreme upscaling tech bring you a pure sound, closer to how the artist intended. You can keep listening in noise-cancelled comfort, day and night, with 30 hour battery life. And stay in touch and in control with intelligent features like gesture control, as well as hands-free calling and interaction with your phone’s voice assistant.
Premium adaptive noise cancellation
Whether you’re on the go or relaxing with a coffee, these headphones deliver premium Sony noise cancellation technology with the advanced algorithms of the QN1 processor. So you can get fully immersed in what you’re listening to, wherever. Adaptive Sound Control adjusts ambient sound settings by detecting your activity, your environment, and even recognises your frequent locations.
Superior sound, wirelessly
40mm drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragm ensure lush and deeply detailed clarity of sound. Enjoy this level of superior audio wirelessly, with Bluetooth boosted by LDAC. It transmits three times more data than conventional Bluetooth, so that High-Resolution content achieves playback comparable to a wired connection. Compressed music files are upscaled too, thanks to the company’s DSEE Extreme tech. And with Multipoint connection, they can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time, and you can easily switch between the two.
Intelligent features, hands-free control
The Speak-to-Chat function automatically pauses playback when you start a conversation, so you don’t even have to remove your headphones, while Wearing Detection automatically powers them off when you're not wearing them to conserve battery power. Precise Voice Pickup Technology uses 5 built-in microphones and advanced audio signal processing to deliver clearer voice quality when you’re taking hands-free calls from your smart device. And, for seamless multitasking, Voice Assistant and gesture control lets you get info from your phone’s smart assistant, connect with friends, control your music, and more, without having to even reach for your phone.
Comfort all day
Soft, pressure-relieving earpads evenly distribute pressure, while their lightweight construction ensures consistent comfort throughout the day. They’ll keep going for up to 30 hours of noise-cancelled music, or as long as 38 hours with noise cancellation switched off. And when you’re short on time, a quick ten minute charge gives you five hours of listening.
