But with the WH-1000XM4, you’re getting a much greater sense of noise cancellation in the mid-ranges – those sorts of areas where you get a low-level humming kind of sound that you could attribute to a fan, or air conditioning unit, or engine noise. It’s never fully silenced, but it’s remarkably quiet, and as soon as you have actual audio playing through the cans, you can’t hear the outside world at all. The 30 hours should be enough to get you through multiple international flights or a few days to the office, but it’s also good to know that the headphones can be charged in a matter of minutes thanks to fast-charging. According to Sony, you can get about five hours of charge from 10 minutes of power and a full charge after about three hours.
Since their release in August 2020, the Sony WH-1000XM4 have been given a few updates. For starters, Sony released a limited edition white colorway with a gold finish. The company also releases a firmware update to improve Bluetooth stability when the headphones are paired to multiple devices and to fix a bug which saw users struggle to connect the Sony WH-1000XM4 to Windows computers. Sony’s still pushing its 360 Reality Audio offering too, which is its homegrown immersive audio format, putting you in the middle of a surround-sound mix, and it’s still impressive –even if actually accessing its library is limited to just a few streaming services, and the catalogue’s growth has been slow. 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.
