Industry-leading noise cancellation1 – now even better

Everything in the WF-1000XM4 headphones has been designed from the ground up.

WF-1000XM4 in charging case

Listen all day, charge in minutes

You can enjoy a full working day of charge – 8 hours – from your headphones and store another 16 hours in the case. That means a full 24 hours2 of listening time every time you leave the house. In a hurry? Just a 5 minute quick charge gives you up to 60 minutes of play time and the Sony | Headphones Connect app will even notify you when your charging case drops below 30%.

Superior call quality

Precise Voice Pickup Technology uses beamforming microphones and a bone-conduction sensor to allow the WF-1000XM4 headphones to pick up your voice clearly and accurately for hands-free calls – at home, in a café or wherever you are. In addition, Noise Cancelling lets you hear the person on the other end of the call more clearly, even in noisy situations.

Exceptional sound quality

The WF-1000XM4 now supports High-Resolution Audio Wireless3. Thanks to specially designed 6mm drivers, they reproduce a dynamic sound despite their small size, and the high compliance diaphragm reproduces a rich bass range. The Integrated Processor V1 also enhances sound quality and reduces distortion, and enables LDAC codec processing and DSEE Extreme.

No cables necessary, the WF-1000XM4 feature Qi technology for easy wireless charging7. You can even use a smartphone with Qi technology to charge your headphones and charging case.
