Sony’s WH-1000XM4 Headphone Sets The Industry’s New Noise-Cancelling Standard

The saying “don’t fix what isn’t broken” clearly doesn’t apply to some of today’s most prominent tech manufacturers. This is especially true for Sony, who has remained at the top of its respective markets due to an unrelenting pursuit of innovation. For many, the brand’s WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Cancelling headphone was more than capable, offering premium audio quality, cutting-edge noise reduction, and adaptive sound control for the everyday listener. Of course, that didn’t mean much to te monolithic brand — and now, they’ve released their next-generation model.

The WH-1000XM4 Noise-Cancelling headphone is an obvious successor to the already-capable WH1000XM3, and as such, it introduces a handful of revised updates to the sleek, sound-focused model. Instead of elaborating on the wireless device’s audio properties and noise cancellation, Sony has decided to make things a bit more intuitive, incorporating dual-device pairing, improved voice capture, a personal noise canceling optimizer, and atmospheric pressure optimization for the avid travelers out there. Inside, they’ve improved their current microphone setup for more precise call quality, as well as to augment their real-time audio compression restoration, adaptive acceleration sensors, and effortless operation. The best part? You’ll be able to utilize all of this for up to 30 hours per charge, depending on your style of use. Head to Sony’s website to pick up the WH-1000XM4 for $350.
