Sony Updates Its WF-1000 Earbuds With High-Res Audio & Improved ANC

Sony took the audio world by storm back in 2019 when it launched the WF-1000XM3 true wireless earbuds. Between their class-leading noise cancellation and their impressive sound quality, they made for one of the best in-ear options you could buy at the time. Well, assuming you didn’t mind their gargantuan size, that is.

With the launch of the WF-1000XM4, Sony has taken its flagship true wireless offering and given it a top-to-bottom redesign. In practice, this means that the updated earbuds are both smaller and lighter than their predecessor, all the while boasting a number of improvements under the hood. For instance, thanks to Sony’s latest Integrated Processor V1, they not only block more noise across all frequencies but also use less power in the process. And because of their LDAC codec processing and newly-designed 6mm drivers — offering a 20% increase in magnet volume — the WF-1000XM4 now supports DSEE Extreme upscaling as well High-Resolution Audio Wireless, giving you a sound quality practically indistinguishable from that of a wired connection. Rounded out by Speak-to-chat volume control, a longer 12-hour battery life, and some specially-designed foam tips, they promise to be some of the most capable earbuds on the market. They’re available now for $280.
