WF-1000XM4 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
See how the WF-1000XM4 earphones combine our most advanced noise cancelling with exceptional audio performance and personalised, smart features that adjust to your location.
Even on windy days you'll stay totally immersed. Automatic Wind Noise Reduction mode detects when it's windy and automatically suppresses it.
In Ambient Sound mode, the WF-1000XM4 headphones capture more of the sound around you than ever before, which means you get a more natural listening experience and stay connected to your environment.
The WF-1000XM4 now supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless, thanks to LDAC, our industry-adopted audio coding technology. 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.
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.
You can opt to have Adaptive Sound Control learn to recognise places that you frequently visit, like your office, the gym or a favourite café, and tailor the sound to suit the situation.
Beamforming microphones are calibrated to only pick up sounds from your mouth. With an improved signal-to-noise ratio they'll catch every word, even when there's a lot of noise around you.
A bone-conduction sensor only picks up vibrations from your voice—it doesn't register ambient sound—enabling even clearer speech when making calls.
Get hands-free help. Just say "OK Google" or "Alexa" to activate your preferred voice assistant. Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders and more. You can even control your headphones' features like noise cancellation with your voice.
The WF-1000XM4 headphones support Google's helpful new Fast Pair feature. In one tap, the WF-1000XM4 enable quick, effortless Bluetooth pairing with your Android devices. You can easily locate where you left your headphones by ringing them or checking their last known location on your smartphone. You'll even receive a notification when your headphones battery is running low so you know when to charge them.
Find the right fit for your ears with the Sony | Headphones Connect app. It takes you through a few simple measurements to find the ideal size of Noise Isolation Earbud Tips to ensure maximum sound quality and minimum outside noise.
Watching video content on your smartphone or tablet? The advanced wireless connection on the WF-1000XM4 syncs what you see on screen precisely with what you hear on your headphones for more enjoyable viewing.
The optimisation of the transmission algorithm with the Integrated Processor V1 has made the connection more stable and less prone to sound skipping, even in an environment where there is interference. It allows sound to be transmitted to both ears at the same time with very low latency, and with a higher signal strength than ever before.
You can enjoy a full working day of charge—8 hours—from your headphones and store another 16 hours in the case. That means a full 24 hours of listening time every time you leave the house. In a hurry? Just a 5 minute quick charge gives you up to 60 minutes of play time and the Sony | Headphones Connect app will even notify you when your charging case drops below 30%.
No cables necessary, the WF-1000XM4 feature Qi technology for easy wireless charging. You can even use a smartphone with Qi technology, like the latest Xperia model with battery share function, to charge your headphones and charging case.
The WF-1000XM4 headphones feature intuitive touch control settings—for example, tap on the left earbud to change from Noise Cancelling to Ambient Sound and long tap for Quick Attention, or double tap on the right to skip to the next track. What's more, you can assign your own functions to each earbud using the Headphones Connect app.
Just take the earbuds out of your ears and the music stops—a proximity sensor knows when you are wearing one or both earbuds. Pop the earbuds back in and the music starts again.
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 Equaliser lets you customise sound levels to suit your music.
The WF-1000XM4 headphones come in your choice of black or silver.
We redesigned the internal layout to make the WF-1000XM4 headphones 10% smaller than the previous generation, without compromising on sound quality or battery life. At just 7.3 g they're light enough to wear all day. The charging case is smaller too by 40%, yet still gives you 16 hours of on-the-go charge.
There's no plastic in the WF-1000XM4 packaging, designed based on low-toxicity design principles and a "Made to be remade" philosophy that's more socially responsible. 99% of the paper packaging, other than labels, is produced using recycled and sustainable materials developed specially for Sony.
Open up the packaging for your WF-1000XM4 headphones and you'll find three sizes of Noise Isolation Earbud Tips included, as well as a USB-C charging cable.
