Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones - Silver
Advanced Noise Cancellation
Experience the next level of noise-cancelling technology with the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones. Whether you're on a long-haul flight or enjoying a peaceful moment in a café, these headphones deliver superior noise-cancelling performance, effectively blocking out high and mid-frequency sounds for a truly immersive audio experience.
Cutting-Edge Noise Cancellation Technology
Sony's dual noise sensor technology, featuring two microphones on each earcup, captures ambient noise and transmits the data to the advanced HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. This processor, equipped with a new algorithm, instantly applies noise-cancelling processing to adapt to various acoustic environments. Working in tandem with a state-of-the-art Bluetooth Audio SoC (System on Chip), it continuously monitors and adjusts to music and noise signals, as well as the unique acoustic characteristics between the headphone driver unit and your ears, with remarkable precision—over 700 times per second.
Optimised Noise Cancellation
The WH-1000XM4 headphones integrate two key technologies to optimise noise-cancelling performance. Atmospheric Pressure Optimisation ensures impeccable sound quality even at high altitudes, while the Personal Noise Cancellation Optimiser analyzes individual factors like head size, glasses, and hair to tailor the sound experience to your unique profile.
Ambient Sound Control
Customise your ambient sound preferences using the Sony | Headphones Connect app. This feature allows you to suppress unwanted noise while still permitting essential sounds, such as transport announcements, to pass through, enhancing your on-the-go listening experience.
Wireless Freedom, Premium Sound
LDAC technology enables these headphones to transmit approximately three times more data than standard BLUETOOTH audio, delivering High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, almost on par with a wired connection.
Uncompromising Sound Quality
An integrated analogue amplifier within the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 ensures an unmatched signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in minimal distortion and exceptional sound quality when used with portable devices. The powerful 40mm drivers, featuring Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, are optimised to handle heavy beats and reproduce a full spectrum of frequencies up to 40kHz.
Real-Time Restoration of Compressed Files
Thanks to Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) developed in collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment, the DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) enhances compressed digital music files on the fly. Recognizing instrumentation, musical genres, and individual song elements, it restores the high-range sound often lost during compression, providing a richer and more complete listening experience.
Convenient "Speak-to-Chat" Feature
With "Speak-to-Chat," your headphones automatically pause the music and activate ambient sound when you start a conversation. Utilizing Precise Voice Pickup Technology and five built-in microphones, this intelligent feature recognises your voice and seamlessly transitions between conversations and music playback.
Adaptive Sound Control
Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that learns your frequently visited locations, adjusting sound profiles accordingly. It also detects your activities, such as walking, waiting, or travelling, and adapts ambient sound settings to suit your situation.
Intuitive Proximity Sensor
A proximity sensor in the headphones detects when you're wearing them and adjusts playback accordingly, helping conserve battery life. Remove your headphones, and your music automatically pauses; put them back on, and your music resumes.
Quick Attention Mode
Need to hear what's happening around you? Place your hand over the earcup housing to instantly lower the music volume and allow ambient sounds in.
The WH-1000XM4 headphones combine sophisticated style with exceptional comfort. Super-soft, pressure-relieving earpads made of foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and increase earpad contact for a secure and comfortable fit. With a lightweight design, you'll hardly notice you're wearing them.
Extended Battery Life and Quick Charging
Enjoy up to 30 hours of battery life, perfect for long journeys. In a hurry? Just 10 minutes of charging with the optional AC adapter provides up to 5 hours of playback.
Voice Assistant Integration
Activate your preferred voice assistant—such as "OK Google" or "Alexa"—for hands-free control of your headphones and access to a wide range of functions, from entertainment and communication to information and reminders.
Crystal-Clear Hands-Free Calling
With easy, hands-free calling, you can leave your phone in place and answer calls with a simple double tap. The WH-1000XM4, equipped with Precise Voice Pickup Technology, ensures clear voice quality for both you and the person on the other end of the call.
Intuitive Touch Controls
Change tracks, adjusts volume, and manages calls effortlessly with intuitive touch-sensitive controls on the headphone's surface.
Sony | Headphones Connect App
Enhance your listening experience with the Sony | Headphones Connect app. Adjust background sound volume with Ambient Sound Control and fine-tune sound levels to match your musical preferences with the Equaliser feature.
Conveniently pair the WH-1000XM4 headphones with two Bluetooth devices simultaneously and effortlessly switch between them when needed.
Swivel Foldable Design
The ear cups swivel inward for compact and hassle-free storage in the included durable carry case with a cable for wired listening.
Immersive Spatial Sound
Download the Sony | 360 Spatial Sound Personaliser app to create a personalised spatial sound field, optimised for your ear shape when paired with BRAVIA XR TVs.
Dolby Atmos Experience
When connected to a Sony WLA-NS7 wireless transmitter and a BRAVIA XR TV, your headphones deliver an immersive Dolby Atmos experience, placing you at the heart of the action with a carefully arranged phantom speaker setup.
