  • Only Music Nothing Else
    Sony’s intelligent industry-leading noise canceling headphones with premium sound elevate your listening experience with the ability to personalise and control everything you hear.

    Be at one with your music
    Discover how the WH-1000XM4 headphones blend our most advanced noise cancelling with exceptional sound quality and a range of smart features for an unrivaled listening experience.

    Industry-leading noise cancellation
    Industry-leading noise cancellation technology means you hear every word, note, and tune with incredible clarity, no matter your environment. These noise cancelling headphones feature additional microphones that assist in isolating sound for a reduction of even more high and mid frequency sounds.

    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. Using a new algorithm, the HD Noise-Cancelling Processor QN1 then applies noise-cancelling processing in real time to a range of acoustic environments. Working together with a new Bluetooth® Audio SoC (System on Chip), it senses and adjusts to music and noise signals, as well as acoustic characteristics between the driver unit and ears, at over 700 times per second.

    Optimising noise cancelling
    To maximise noise-cancelling performance, the WH-1000XM4 headphones incorporate two technologies: Personal Noise-Canceling 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 essential sounds, like overhead announcements, through when you're listening on the move.

    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.

    Sound you can believe in
    A built-in analog amplifier integrated in the HD Noise-Cancelling Processor QN1 realises an unmatched signal-to-noise ratio for low distortion and exceptional sound quality for portable devices. Powerful 1.57" drivers, with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.

    Real-time restoration of all your compressed files
    Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) co-developed with Sony Music Studios Tokyo, DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognising 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.

    Smart listening technology to enhance your listening
    The WH-1000XM4 headphones use an array of smart technologies to create a seamless, hands-free listening experience. For example, simply start speaking to automatically pause your music in Speak-to-Chat, or enjoy adaptive playback thanks to the proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors that detect whether your headphones are being worn or not.

    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 your hands are full. Based on Precise Voice Pickup Technology, this smart feature uses five microphones built into your headphones and advanced audio signal processing to recognize and react to your voice. And once your chat is over, your music starts playing again automatically.

    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.

    Headphones that react to you
    Proximity sensor and two acceleration sensors 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 automatically. Put the headphones back on and the music automatically resumes.

    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 ambient sound in.

    Wear all day in total comfort
    WH-1000XM4 headphones blend sophisticated style with exceptional comfort. Super-soft, pressure-relieving ear pads 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.

    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.

    Effortless operation
    From controlling your music to accessing your voice assistant or making hands-free calls—with the WH-1000XM4, it couldn't be easier.
