Noise-Canceling Processor QN1


With two microphones on each earcup, dual noise sensor technology records background noise and sends the information to the HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1. The HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1 then implements noise-canceling processing in real-time to a variety of acoustic settings using a new method. It detects and adapts to noise and audio signals, as well as acoustic parameters between the driver unit and ears, at a rate of over 700 times per second, in concert with a new Bluetooth® Audio SoC (System on Chip).

Analog Amplifier


The HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1’s integrated analog amplifier achieves an unparalleled signal-to-noise ratio for minimal distortion and superb sound quality for portable devices. The Wireless Headphones are ideal for managing intense beats because of their powerful 1.57″ drivers and Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, which reproduce a wide frequency range up to 40 kHz.

Wear All Day in Total Comfort


The Wireless Headphones WH-1000XM4 combine outstanding comfort and elegant design. For a solid fit, super-soft, pressure-relieving ear pads made of foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and promote ear/pad contact. You won’t even realize you’re wearing them thanks to their lightweight design.

Swivel Foldable Structure


Because the ear cups swivel inward, they neatly fit inside a small case.

Carry Case with Cable


There’s a sturdy carrying case included, along with a wired listening cord.


Optimizing Noise Cancelling Headphones
The WH-1000XM4 Wireless Headphones use two technologies to optimize their noise-canceling performance: Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing, which is specifically made for flying, and Personal Noise-Canceling Optimizer, which is made just for you.

Ambient Sound Control
With the Sony Headphones Connect app, you can adjust the ambient sound to block off distractions while letting important sounds—like overhead announcements—pass through when you’re listening while on the go.

Wireless Freedom, Premium Sound
With a maximum transmission rate of 990 kbps, LDAC can send around three times as much data as standard BLUETOOTH® audio. This means you may experience High-Resolution Audio content in remarkable quality, as near to that of a dedicated cable connection as feasible.

Real-time Restoration
DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upsides compressed digital audio files in real-time using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), co-developed with Sony Music Studios Tokyo. It gives a richer, more comprehensive listening experience by dynamically identifying musical genres, instrumentation, and specific song features like vocals or interludes. This recovers the high-range sound that was lost due to compression.

Smart Listening Technology
A variety of smart technologies are combined in the WH-1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Headphones to provide a smooth, hands-free listening experience. For example, in talk-to-chat, all you have to do is talk to initiate the automatic pause of your music. Alternatively, you can take advantage of adaptive playback, enabled by the proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors that sense whether your Bluetooth Headphones are on or off.

Quick Attention
To rapidly reduce the level of your music and allow ambient sound to fill the room, simply place your palm over the housing.

Effortless Operation
With the WH-1000XM4, using your voice assistant, managing your music, and making hands-free calls are all incredibly simple.

Multipoint Connection
The WH-1000XM4 Bluetooth Headphones may be simultaneously associated with two Bluetooth devices for ultimate convenience. As a result, your Best Noise Cancelling Headphones will automatically pair with the device that is ringing when a call comes in.

Sony Headphones Connect App
You can change the background sound’s volume and choose to hear voices with the Bluetooth Headphones Connect app Ambient Sound Control feature. In the meantime, you can adjust sound levels with the Equalizer to fit your musical taste.
