It's Just you and your music with the WH-X1000XM4 headphones. The easy way to enjoy less noise and even purer sound, with smart listening technology that automatically personalizes your experience.
Be at one with your music. Discover how the WH-X1000XM4 headphones blend our most advanced noise cancelling with exceptional sound quality and a range of smart features for unrivalled listening experience.
Industry leading noise cancellation. Whether you are flying long haul or relaxing in a cafÃ©, the WH-X1000XM4 headphones deliver our best ever noise cancelling performance, keeping out even more high and mid frequency sounds.
The technology behind the noise cancellation. Dual noise sensor technology, featuring two microphones on each earcup, captures ambient noise and passes the data to the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. Using a new algorithm, the QN1 then applies noise cancelling processing in real time to a range of acoustic environments. Working together a new Bluetooth Audio SoC (System on Chip), it senses and adjusts to music ad noise signals, as well as acoustic characteristics between the driver unit and ears, at over 700 times per second.
Optimizing noise cancelling. The WH-X1000XM4 headphones incorporate two technologies to maximize noise cancelling performance. Unique Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing delivers optimal sound at high altitude while Personal Noise Cancellation Optimizer analyses unique sonic characteristics caused by head size, glasses and hair then tailors sound to you.
Ambient sound control. Adjust ambient sound with the Sony Headphones Connect App to cancel noise while still allowing through essential sounds like transport announcements, when you are listening on the move.
Real time restoration of all your compressed files. Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) co developed with Sony Music Entertainment, DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing instrumentation, musical genres and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
Sound you can believe in. A built in analogue amplifier integrated in the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 realizes an unmatched signal to noise ratio for low distortion and exceptional sound quality for portable devices. Powerful 40 mm drivers, with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, make the headphone perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40kHz.
Adaptive sound control automatically adjusts to your location and behavior. Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that can learn to recognize locations you frequently visit, such as your work place or favorite cafÃ© and tailor sound for the ideal listening experience. In addition, it automatically detects what you're up to, for example walking, waiting or travelling then adjusts ambient sound settings to suit the situation.
Quick Attention. Need to quickly hear voices or sounds around you? Just place your hand over the housing to instantly turn your music volume down and let the ambient sounds in.
Headphones that react to you. A proximity sensor in your headphones can detect whether you're wearing them or not, then adapt playback accordingly to help save battery power. Take off your headphones and the music pauses immediately. Put the headphones back on and the music automatically resumes.
Wear all day in total comfort. WH-X1000XM4 headphones blend sophisticated styling with exceptional comfort. Super soft, pressure relieving earpads in foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and increase earpad contact for a stable fit. And with a lighter weight design, you'll barely notice you are wearing them.
Be smarter with Voice Assistant. Manage your day, just by asking your assistant. Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders and more.
All day power and quick charge. With a huge 30 hours of battery life you'll have enough power even for long trips. And if you need to top up in a hurry, you can get 5 hours worth of charge in just 10 mins with the optional AC adapter.
Control at your fingertips. Change the track, turn the volume up or down, and take or make calls just by tapping or swiping the panel.
Multipoint connection. For total convenience, WH-X1000XM4 headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. So when a call comes in, your headphones will know which device is ringing and connect to the right one automatically. You'll also be able to quickly and smoothly switch your headphones to either of the two devices at the touch of a button.
Sony - Headphones Connect App. 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 Equalizer lets you customize sound levels to suit your music.
Wireless Freedom, premium sound. 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.
For everyday convenience, just Speak-To-Chat. As soon as you speak to someone, Speak-To-Chat automatically stops the music and lets in ambient sound so you can conduct a conversation, handy if you want to keep your headphones on, or if your hands are full. Based on Precise Voice Pick up Technology, this smart feature uses 5 microphones built into your headphones and advance audio signal processing to recognize and react to your voice. And once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.
Clearer hands free calling. Conversations flow freely with easy, hands free calling. Leave your phone where it is, just speak with a double tap. Thanks to Precise Voice Pick up Technology, which combines 5 built in microphones with advanced audio signal processing. WH-X1000XM4 delivers clearer voice quality to the other person on the phone.
