Be at one with your music
Discover how the WH-1000XM4 headphones blend Sony's most advanced noise cancelling with exceptional sound quality
and a range of smart features for an unrivalled listening experience.
Industry-leading noise cancellation technology means you hear every word, note and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. These noise cancelling headphones feature additional microphones that assist in isolating sound for a reduction of even more high- and mid-frequency sounds.
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 essential sounds, like overhead announcements, through when you’re listening on the move.
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
Sound you can believe in
A built-in analogue amplifier integrated in the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 realizes an unmatched signal-to-noise ratio for low distortion and exceptional sound quality for portable devices. Powerful 40-mm drivers with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.
Real-time restoration of all your compressed files
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) co-developed with Sony Music Studios Tokyo, DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing instrumentation, musical genres and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
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.
For everyday convenience, just Speak-to-Chat
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—handy if you want to keep your headphones on, or your hands are full. Based on Precise Voice Pickup Technology, this smart feature uses five microphones built into your headphones and advanced audio signal processing to recognize and react to your voice. And once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.
Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do
Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience.
Lose yourself in your journey, with no background noise to interrupt your favourite tracks.
Be aware of everything around you, from street to office, while still enjoying music.
Hear important announcements while you wait, without noticing other background noise.
Learns your favourite locations
Over time, Adaptive Sound Control learns to recognize locations that you frequently visit, such as your workplace, the gym, or a favourite café, and tailors sound to suit the situation.
Headphones that react to you
Proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors in your headphones can detect whether you’re wearing them or not, then adapt playback accordingly to help save battery power.
Pause the music
Take off your headphones and the music pauses automatically.
Put the headphones back on and the music automatically resumes.
Wear all day in total comfort
WH-1000XM4 headphones blend sophisticated style with exceptional comfort. Super-soft, pressure-relieving ear pads in foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and increase ear/pad contact for a stable fit. And with a lighter-weight design, you’ll barely notice you’re wearing them.
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 with the optional AC adapter.
From controlling your music to accessing your voice assistant or making hands-free calls—with the WH-1000XM4, it couldn’t be easier.
Be smarter with Voice Assistant
Manage your day, just by asking your assistant. Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders, and more.
Clearer hands-free calling
Conversation flows freely with easy, hands-free calling. Leave your phone where it is, just speak with a double tap. Thanks to Precise Voice Pickup Technology, which combines five built-in microphones with advanced audio signal processing, WH-1000XM4 delivers clearer voice quality to the other person on the phone.
Control at your fingertips
Change the track, turn the volume up or down, and take or make calls just by tapping or swiping the panel.
Sony | Headphones Connect app
With the Sony | Headphones Connect app, Ambient Sound Control lets you adjust the volume of background sound and gives you the option to allow voices alone to be heard. Meanwhile the Equalizer lets you customize sound levels to suit your music.
For total convenience, WH-1000XM4 headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. So 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.
