Discover how the Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones blend our most advanced noise canceling with exceptional sound quality and a range of smart features for an unrivaled listening experience. It features industry-leading noise cancellation technology that means you hear every word, note, and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. These noise canceling headphones feature additional microphones that assist in isolating sound while talking on the phone, resulting in improved phone call quality and the reduction of even more high and mid frequency sounds.
Speak-to-Chat for everyday convenience
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. Based on Precise Voice Pickup Technology, this smart feature uses five microphones built into your headphones and advanced audio signal processing to recognise and react to your voice. Once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.
Wearing detection for battery optimization
A proximity sensor in your headphones can detect whether you’re wearing them or not, then adapt playback accordingly to help save battery power. Take off your headphones and the music pauses automatically. Put the headphones back on and the music automatically resumes.
Multipoint connection for 2 Bluetooth devices
WH-1000XM4 headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. When a call comes in, your headphones know which device is ringing and connect to the right one automatically. You’ll also be able to quickly, smoothly switch your headphones to either of the two devices at the touch of a button.
Dual noise sensor technology
The 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 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.
Real-time restoration of all your compressed files
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) co-developed with Sony Music Entertainment, DSEE Extreme upscales compressed digital music files in real time for a richer, more complete listening experience.
Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to your location and behaviour
Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that can learn to recognise locations you frequently visit, such as your workplace or favourite café, and tailor sound for the ideal listening experience. It also detects what you’re up to – for example, walking, waiting or travelling – then adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation.
All day power and quick charging
With a huge 30 hours of battery life you’ll have enough power even for long trips. And if you need to top up in a hurry, you can get 5 hours’ worth of charge after just 10 minutes*.
*When using optional 1.5A or more AC adapter.
