Everyday Headphone Convenience

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 your hands are full.

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 ambient sound in. Take off your headphones and the music pauses automatically.

Change the track, turn the volume up or down, and take or make calls just by tapping or swiping the panel. Alternatively, manage your day simply by asking the voice assistant. Enjoy entertainment, connect with friends, get information, listen to music and notifications, set reminders, and more.

Clearer hands-free calling

Conversation flows freely with easy, hands-free calling. Leave your phone where it is, just speak with a double-tap. Thanks to Precise Voice Pickup Technology, which combines five built-in microphones with advanced audio signal processing, WH-1000XM4 delivers clearer voice quality to the other person on the phone.

Wear all day in total comfort

WH-1000XM4 headphones blend sophisticated styling with exceptional comfort. Super-soft, pressure-relieving earpads in foamed urethane evenly distribute pressure and increase ear/pad contact for a stable fit. And with a lighter-weight design, you’ll barely notice you’re wearing them.

Adaptive Sound Control automatically adjusts to whatever you do

Adaptive Sound Control is a smart function that senses where you are and what you’re doing, then adjusts ambient sound settings for the ideal listening experience.

Learns your favourite locations
Over time, Adaptive Sound Control learns to recognise locations that you frequently visit, such as your workplace, the gym, or a favourite café, and tailors sound to suit the situation.


Industry-leading Noise Cancellation

Whether you’re flying long-haul or relaxing in a café, the WH-1000XM4 headphones deliver Sony's best ever noise cancelling performance, keeping out even more high and mid-frequency sounds.

To maximise noise-cancelling performance, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones incorporate two technologies: Personal Noise Cancelling Optimiser, designed specifically for you, and Atmospheric Pressure Optimising, designed specifically for air travel.

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’re listening on the move.

SONY HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 | The technology that makes it happen

Dual noise sensor technology, featuring two microphones on each earcup, captures ambient noise and passes the data to the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1


LDAC | 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.

Multipoint Connection
For total convenience, WH-1000XM4 headphones can be paired with two Bluetooth devices at the same time. So when a call comes in, your headphones know which device is ringing and connect to the right one automatically. You’ll also be able to quickly, smoothly switch your headphones to either of the two devices at the touch of a button.

All-day power and quick charging

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 after just 10 minutes with the optional AC adapter.
