Industry-leading noise cancelation
Industry-leading noise cancellation technology 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 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-Canceling Processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1 then applies noise-canceling 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 canceling
To maximize noise-canceling performance, the WH-1000XM4 headphones incorporate two technologies: Personal Noise-Canceling 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.
Wireless freedom, premium sound
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 analog amplifier integrated in the HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1 realizes an unmatched signal-to-noise ratio for low distortion and exceptional sound quality for portable devices. Powerful 1.57" 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 the 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 favorite 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 favorite locations
Over time, Adaptive Sound Control learns to recognize locations that you frequently visit, such as your workplace, the gym, or a favorite 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.
Take off your headphones and the music pauses automatically.
Put the headphones back on and the music automatically resumes.
Need to quickly hear voices or sounds around you? Just place your hand over the housing to instantly turn your music volume down and let ambient sound in.
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.
The ear cups swivel inwards so they pack up neatly in a compact case.
The supplied carrying case is durable and includes a cable for wired listening.
So immersive. So real.
Immerse yourself in sound all around you. As real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real. These headphones let you enjoy 360 Reality Audio

Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones
Super easy to learn and use. Really like the noise canceling, works great!!! Mic works well, long-lasting charge, just really can’t say anything bad about them.
I am not a fan of writing reviews. But considering the prolong pandemic lockdowns, I figured I should write reviews for businesses that truely deserve good reviews. So far I like the headset. Lot more comfortable than I anticipated. Sound quality is quite good. Best of all, I am very satisfied with Audio46 quick and prompt services. I will definitely buy again from Audio46 in the future.
